About ThermiTight®

It seems as though the older we get, the harder it becomes to keep our bodies toned and our skin tight. No matter how frequently we exercise or the number of calories we consume, eventually the skin can begin to sag and we lose the volume in our features that once helped us look youthful. Oftentimes, people resort to surgery for a more dramatic improvement to their body contour while others choose to receive injectable treatment with BOTOX® and dermal fillers for more subtle effects, and while each of these methods are effective in their own way, they only provide results at either end of the spectrum. What about treatment that combines some of the drama from surgery with the natural enhancement of fillers? The answer is ThermiTight®, which we provide here at Ventura Institute of Dermatologic Arts.

ThermiTight® uses thermal energy to target the tissues that are creating your sagging skin and effectively tighten it so that you look years younger. The procedure is the ideal solution for patients who desire more visible results than what injectables provide, but are not ready to traverse into surgery. Using a novel radio frequency device, thermal energy is applied to the treatment area to tighten the skin and produce a more appealing body contour.

ThermiTight® Will Get Under Your Skin

ThermiTight® specifically targets the subdermal layer of skin, which is where much of your natural collagen is located. Using a very narrow probe called the SmartTip, thermal energy is administered into the subdermal layer and the tissues are heated to a controlled temperature that stimulates collagen production. This natural healing agent begins to rejuvenate the older tissues and replenish them with newer, invigorated skin, which ultimately delivers a more toned appearance. The procedure takes no more than an hour to complete, and besides some minimal swelling, you will not experience any debilitating side effects.

ThermiTight® is used to treat skin laxity on the:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Love handles
  • Breasts

One of the biggest benefits of ThermiTight® is that it is a one-time solution for skin laxity. You won’t require follow-up appointments or routine procedures in order to maintain your results. The effects of ThermiTight® have been shown to last for several years, given that you remain in good general health.

Your ThermiTight® Procedure at VIDA

Treatment with ThermiTight® starts with a consultation, where you can discuss the areas of your body that you would like to see improved. Either Dr. Karlsberg or Michele, his Physician’s Assistant, will explain how the ThermiTight procedure works and help you determine whether the treatment is what you need to achieve your cosmetic goals. At VIDA, we only want to provide you with the most personalized care, which means that we customize your treatment to suit your specific needs. If ThermiTight® is right for you, we will design a treatment plan that addresses your target areas safely and effectively.

Your treatment will begin with the injection of a local anesthetic, which will help ease any discomfort you may feel during the procedure. Besides the application of heat and some pressure, you should feel no sensation once the anesthetic has been injected. Afterwards, the SmartTip probe will be inserted into the treatment area and radio frequency energy will be delivered. Your physician will use Thermal Image Guidance to monitor the temperature of your skin and make sure the heat remains at a suitable level. Once the procedure is complete, the treatment area will be wrapped gently and you can resume your normal daily routine within 24 hours. ThermiTight® begins working immediately, but it may take a couple of months for the natural collagen process to completely replenish the damaged skin cells and tissues. However, when the results begin to appear, you should notice a radical difference in the elasticity of your skin.

ThermiTight® is a minimally invasive and nonsurgical way to tighten the skin, create a more toned body contour and reverse the effects of aging overall. It also provides the perfect compromise between injectable treatment, other nonsurgical options, and surgery.
