What is ThermiTight?
ThermiTight is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that utilizes precision thermal energy to provide patients with younger looking skin and slimmer contours. While surgical procedures like the facelift, neck lift, and liposuction are highly effective options for doing away with sagging skin, small areas of fat, and restoring one’s youthful appearance, many patients are thrilled to find that similar benefits can be achieved without surgery by using ThermiTight. ThermiTight can be a great option for patients looking for a surgery-free way to fight the natural effects of aging.
Is ThermiTight right for me?
While ThermiTight can provide patients with spectacular results, the procedure is not right for everyone. ThermiTight can be used to reduce small, localized areas of fat and tighten skin and tissue, for a well-contoured look. Patients considering a ThermiTight procedure in San Antonio should be at a healthy, stable weight.
What can ThermiTight help treat?
Dr. Ortegon can use ThermiTight to treat common problem areas of the face and body, including:
Various clinical studies have shown ThermiTight to be both safe and effective when administered by a board-certified plastic surgeon. During your consultation with Dr. Ortegon, he will work with you and listen to your expectations in order to lay out a completely customized ThermiTight treatment plan just for you.
How does ThermiTight work?
Rather than the knives and incisions associated with traditional plastic surgery, ThermiTight is a micro-invasive alternative that uses thermal energy to reverse some of the common signs of aging. Your treatment with your San Antonio plastic surgeon will normally take less than an hour, and you could get back to your daily routine right away without any pain or downtime.
To perform the procedure, Dr. Ortegon will insert a thin probe at the treatment site, just beneath the skin. Radio frequency energy is then used to deliver focused heating to the underlying tissues, causing them to shrink. This process also ignites your body’s own collagen production, resulting in improvements to skin texture as well. There may be some noticeable changes immediately, but the full effect of your treatment will occur gradually over the next six weeks.
How long do results last?
Patients who undergo a ThermiTight treatment experience dramatic, long-lasting improvements in the look and feel of their skin. This procedure helps to not only tighten the skin but can also reduce excess fat in the area. With just one treatment, you can effectively reduce common concerns such as jowls, a double chin, and even loose flabby areas throughout the body, such as the bra-strap area.
Many ThermiTight patients continue to see the benefits of their treatment for several years, looking younger than they ever would have without the procedure.
