What Treatment Areas can ThermiTight Address?

This treatment is appropriate for men and women of all ages and is safe for all skin types and tones. ThermiTight can address loose skin in common problem areas such as the:
How Does it Work?
Radiofrequency is used to heat the dermal layer of the skin. This heat stimulates collagen production which, in turn, tightens the skin. To access this layer, the system uses a tiny probe. Dr. Van Wyck has complete control over the temperature and will heat the subdermal tissues to a predetermined temperature.
What is the Treatment Process Like?
Prior to beginning the process, Dr. Van Wyck will inject an anesthetic into the treatment area. This will ensure you experience as little discomfort as possible. After setting the temperature for the ThermiTight system, he can insert the probe into the dermal layer of the skin. The probe transmits the radiofrequency energy to heat this layer and stimulate collagen production. Dr. Van Wyck monitors your skin temperature throughout the process to ensure your safety during the entire treatment.
If you want to tighten loose and sagging skin without undergoing extensive plastic surgery, you may want to consider a minimally invasive option like ThermiTight.
Treatment lengths vary depending on the area you are addressing. The process could take up to an hour or more to complete. Following the treatment, a wrap will be applied to cool the treatment area. The downtime is manageable, and most patients resume their normal activities within a day. Although you could notice immediate improvements in your skin tone, it may take several months before your results are fully realized.
What are the Benefits Compared to Surgery?
Unlike invasive surgical procedures that require extensive recovery time, ThermiTight recovery takes only one day. With just one application, you could enjoy dramatic results. Because the collagen is stimulated subdermally, this minimally invasive procedure can produce long-lasting results. Compared with surgery, ThermiTight is also a much more affordable treatment option, and it does not require taking extensive time off work.
