ThermiTight™: Minimally Invasive Skin-Tightening Mountain View
Dr. Lowen is happy to offer ThermiTight; a minimally invasive procedure that tightens skin with controlled subdermal tissue heating. A tiny incision is made and a very thin probe is inserted directly under the skin. Radio frequency energy is delivered to heat the tissue to the optimal temperature for collagen re-building and tissue contracting. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia right here in our office.
Areas that can be treated:
- Face and neck
- Above the knees
- Loose skin on arms
Is ThermiTight right for you?
If you have mild to moderate loose skin of the face, neck or body, ThermiTight could be the right treatment for you! When surgery is too much, but non-invasive lasers are not improving the area, you may want to consider ThermiTight.
What to expect:
For face and neck, you can expect 1-2 weeks of noticeable swelling with possible bruising. Dr. Lowen may suggest a facial compression garment to help alleviate some of the swelling. For the body, you may have some bruising and swelling, but it’s easily covered by clothes. You can typically resume regular activity after 3 days, but we suggest that you refrain from strenuous physical activity for at least 2 weeks to limit unnecessary swelling.
Your tissue needs time to heal! Patients typically start noticing results around 6 weeks, with the full results at 4 months.
