THERMItight® treatment is a gentle therapy performed using a specially designed radiofrequency energy hand piece. With THERMItight®, our physician applies a controlled amount of heat to targeted tissue. The tip of the tiny probe provides constant feedback of the actual temperature during the application. In addition, an infrared camera is used to monitor skin temperature to ensure that your treatment is both safe and effective.
Through the years, our face and body begin to reveal the signs of aging. Although there is a wide spectrum of cosmetic solutions focused on reversing these signs, patients increasingly gravitate towards those solutions that deliver results superior to non-invasive or over-the-counter treatments, but are absent the risks associated with invasive surgery.
What is the THERMItight® procedure like?
You can expect some moderate discomfort during the treatment, but the anesthetic applied prior to the procedure typically makes any discomfort tolerable. Your physician may recommend a subcutaneous anesthetic during the treatment session. Immediately following the procedure, you may experience mild to moderate swelling and/or bruising for 1-2 weeks following your procedure.
A gentle wrap is applied and you may resume normal activities the next day.
How long will the results last?
After only one treatment, your skin will look smoother and tighter. Using a moisturizer and sunscreen is recommended during the healing process and for the weeks and months following treatment as the new skin is sensitive.
