A Non-Surgical Alternative to the Mini-Facelift: ThermiTight

Turning back the clock when it comes to the appearance of the face and neck is something that interests many people. However, many people want great results without going under the knife. There have been many non-invasive procedures in the past to reverse the effects of aging on the face, neck, etc., but they were not providing the results that patients want.


With the innovative procedure ThermiTight, things are looking better. Thermitight is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done under local anesthetic in the comfort of a plastic surgeon’s office. Thermitight can reverse the signs of aging more than non-invasive procedures and without surgery, ThermiTight is a painless, minimally-invasive solution that targets problem areas of the face and neck to improve the appearance of sagging neck skin and jowls. Growing in popularity, it was featured on “The Doctors” TV show in spring 2014.


ThermiTight is the first aesthetic procedure which uses controlled thermal energy under the skin to reverse aging’s effects. It’s a single treatment solution for skin laxity. Here’s how it works: Dr. Steiger injects anesthetic solution into the area that will be treated. He then inserts the small ThermiRF SmartTip thermistor probe under the skin, and uses the ThermiRF device to heat the tissues in the areas of concern. The skin is continuously being monitored using a thermal camera to assure that the area is being optimally and safely treated.


ThermiTight produces three-dimensional improvement in the look of skin laxity. Results are noticed over weeks to month. In fact, the effects of ThermiTight have been shown to last several years.


The procedure typically takes less than one hour. Patients are usually able to return to normal activity within 24 hours. There can be swelling that generally subsides within 5-7 days.


So, if that area on your face or neck is bothering you, and you want great results but surgery is not something you want to consider, you can now try ThermiTight for a natural, younger look. Be sure to visit a facial plastic surgeon who is experienced in this procedure to obtain the best possible results.
