What is THERMItight®?

THERMItight® is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment for reversing moderate skin laxity using temperature-controlled radiofrequency energy. This safe, FDA-authorized treatment encourages tissue contraction and collagen production by heating layers below the skin.

The main areas where THERMItight® can be used include the neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, thighs, and knees. People of all skin types and tones may benefit from this skin-tightening treatment.

What Causes Skin Laxity?

As with many cosmetic skin problems, age is one of the main reasons—if not the main reason—for skin laxity. This is because with increasing years, the structural integrity of the skin changes significantly, and the same processes that once gave your skin its youthful glow begin to slow down or stop. Existing levels of proteins like collagen and elastin, which provide strength and flexibility, diminish as production declines.

Aside from the aging process, exposure to sunlight and lifestyle choices—like smoking—are two other leading causes of skin damage. In addition, losing a significant amount of weight can cause laxity if the skin is not sufficiently elastic to retract along with a shrinking waistline, chin, or other feature.

How Does THERMItight® Tighten the Skin?

The THERMItight® device introduces heat energy below the surface, which causes tissues to contract and kickstarts natural collagen generation for more gradual firming results. The device allows operators to manage the precise temperature, depth, and area where energy is emitted for customized results.

How THERMItight® Works

What Can I Expect from a THERMItight® Procedure?

During a THERMItight® session, a small, needle-like device is used to inject radiofrequency energy into the inner layers of the treatment area. Patients are given a local anaesthetic to diminish sensation and improve comfort. The process takes a matter of minutes and requires no sutures for closure.

Results and Recovery from THERMItight®

One of the main benefits of THERMItight® is that patients enjoy a brief recuperation time thanks to the nonsurgical nature of the treatment. After a single session, patients can go back to their typical activities within 24 hours. It leaves no scarring and causes minimal to no discomfort. Results show within a few weeks and continue to gradually improve as months pass, lasting up to a year or longer.

What Are Other Options for Skin Tightening?

Aside from THERMItight®, there are a number of methods available at The Waldorf Center for improving the appearance of the skin. Each may be used on its own or combined with the cutting-edge radiofrequency treatment for optimal results.

If you're feeling self-conscious about expression lines and wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic can be a powerful solution, especially on the upper third of the face: around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. Anyone interested in restoring volume to a face that has changed shape due to collagen and fat loss may also consider hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, such as the collection of Juvederm® brands.

Patients who do want the more dramatic results of a surgical procedure can get more youthful contours with a facelift, brow lift, or similar facial option.
