ThermiTight® Atlanta Skin Tightening
Minimally invasive skin tightening for the face and body
A healthy diet, regular exercise, and good sleep habits are key to helping us look and feel our best, but one thing a healthy lifestyle can’t really help with is loose or sagging skin.
Whether due to significant weight loss, aging, or genetics, skin laxity is a common concern among our Atlanta patients, and we are pleased to offer an in-office treatment that can significantly smooth and tighten loose skin nearly anywhere on the face or body with minimal downtime: ThermiTight®.
What is ThermiTight?
ThermiTight is a minimally invasive treatment that uses targeted radiofrequency energy to heat tissues and stimulate collagen production. During treatment, a small, thin probe is inserted just beneath the skin, which allows your provider to target just the right tissue layers to induce the desired improvements in skin tone and firmness.
What are the benefits of ThermiTight for skin tightening?
- Most patients are satisfied after a single ThermiTight treatment
- Downtime is minimal; 2 to 4 days off work is typical
- Local anesthesia only
- No surgical scarring
- Significant improvements in as little as 4 to 6 weeks
- Results can last several years with a healthy lifestyle
What concerns does ThermiTight treat?
Our experienced Atlanta providers can use ThermiTight to tighten skin nearly anywhere on the face, body, arms, or legs. Many of our patients choose ThermiTight to help them:
- Reduce jowls
- Tighten skin on the neck or jawline
- Tighten loose abdominal skin
- Firm skin on the inner or outer thighs
- Smooth & tone wrinkly knees
- Achieve a mild non-surgical breast lift
- Firm the upper arms
What to expect with Atlanta ThermiTight treatments
We will first numb the treatment area with local and/or topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort (most of our patients say the procedure is painless).
To treat the area, your surgeon will insert a small probe just under your skin, which will heat tissues to a specific temperature. The heat produced is constantly monitored and controlled to ensure maximum benefit while keeping you safe.
Your surgeon will then carefully move the probe in small, precise motions to “sculpt” your results. You can expect an immediate improvement in tissue contraction, with greater skin tightening occurring gradually over the course of 4 to 6 months as new collagen is produced.see more patient reviews stars
I am so happy with my relationship with Artisian Plastic Surgery! From the start, they were concerned with my desire to have a natural result and they provided amazing results.
What is the recovery like after ThermiTight?
Depending on the treatment area, you may go home wearing a compression garment to help control any post-procedure swelling and to support your results as they take shape. Most patients will wear this compression around the clock for a couple of days, and then at night for a few weeks. Most patients feel comfortable returning to work and other normal activity within 2 to 4 days after their procedure.
Mild bruising, swelling, and tenderness are common after a ThermiTight treatment, although these side effect typically disappear after a week or two. If you are active in sports, you may need to modify your workout routine for a short period; our plastic surgeons will discuss this with you at your consultation.
Am I a good candidate ThermiTight?
ThermiTight can be an excellent option for patients to tighten loose skin without surgery. The best candidates are experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity, who are at a healthy body weight, and who have realistic expectations. If you have significantly stretched, sagging skin or drooping tissues in your area of concern, you may be happier with the results of a surgical procedure, such as a facelift, tummy tuck, or breast lift.
