As you get older, your body tends to change. You may start to notice wrinkles, skin laxity, a softened jawline, and a slack neck. Even if you work out regularly and make it a priority to take care of yourself, loose skin can be found on your body—thanks to gravity, genes, and the natural aging process. While these changes are almost always inevitable, we are here to help you look and feel your best at any age.
Today, many options are available to counteract the negative effects of getting older, gravity, and genes. Many of these options include surgical and invasive body contouring procedures. However, at Aria DermSpa, there is another choice for patients: ThermiTight.
Men are women have recently been turning to this minimally invasive skin-tightening treatment, which offers dramatic results with little downtime. Discover how ThermiTight can help you tighten and tone loose skin on the most common problem spots.
What Is ThermiTight?
ThermiTight is a minimally invasive procedure that is designed to tighten loose skin. This versatile treatment can be performed on many areas of the body, and it’s a great option for both men and women. If you want smoother and tighter skin, then ThermiTight could be for you.
Rather than topical treatments that only target the superficial layer of skin, ThermiTight addresses sagging skin right at the source using a small probe. The procedure begins with a shot of local anesthesia administered to the treated area. After the specialized probe is gently inserted under the skin, it heats the deeper tissues with radiofrequency energy. Meanwhile, your skin’s collagen shrinks, causing loose areas to tighten up. This process also jumpstarts the production of new collagen, which provides progressive rejuvenation for your skin and surrounding tissues. The local anesthesia ensures you won’t feel a thing during the entire treatment.
What Areas of the Body Can ThermiTight Treat?
ThermiTight directly targets loose skin in some of the most common problem spots, including the following areas:
• Face and neck
If you’ve been seeking a treatment for sagging skin but you don’t feel ready for invasive body contouring procedures, ThermiTight is an ideal alternative. In our experience, patients who achieve the maximum results are those who have moderate skin laxity, whether it’s on the face, jawline, belly, thighs, knees and/or arms.
While this procedure has excellent skin-tightening benefits, it does have some limitations. If you have severely sagging skin, you may benefit from a surgical procedure. ThermiTight cannot remove fat deposits either. For those looking to eliminate pesky bulges of fat, CoolSculpting offers a non-surgical solution. Liposuction is one of the most powerful body contouring techniques available, and it’s a great option for patients who are seeking a greater amount of fat removal than CoolSculpting can provide. At your consultation, the specialists at Aria DermSpa will help you choose the best procedure to meet your goals.
What to Expect During and After the Procedure
Depending on the specific patient and the areas of the body that are being treated, the ThermiTight procedure generally takes between one to two hours to perform. During your consultation, your doctor will ask you questions, ultimately gaining a better understanding of your wants, needs, and goals. You will then receive more information regarding your tailored treatment, such as how long it will take to complete.
One of the biggest incentives offered by ThermiTight is the fact that results are almost immediate. The most dramatic results will be seen after a few months. For these results to last you will need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Consistent diet and exercise will allow you to enjoy the results for years to come.
After the initial procedure, patients do tend to see drastic results. However, if your goals have not been met following your first ThermiTight treatment, then it is safe to schedule additional procedures.
Due to the minimally invasive nature of ThermiTight, patients can usually resume normal activities after just a day or two.
