gravity on your knees, stomach, arms or back? Dr. Pisarski can tighten and lift these areas using radio frequency energy non-surgically. ThermiTight® uses temperature controlled radio frequency heat which stimulates new collagen to rally and remodel the skin. This results in a more youthful you!
Science Behind ThermiTight®
This technology works by delivering a controlled, intense burst of heat triggering your body’s own rejuvenation process and inducing skin tightening, reduction of wrinkles, and the improvement of body contouring. Radio frequency energy is also used to heat the fat layer under the skin causing the release of fat cells and inducing shrinkage of the fat cells. This ultimately leads to volume reduction and improvement in the outer tissue appearance. With the Thermi technology Dr. Pisarski is able to control the temperature of the heat and keep it perfectly targeted for maximum results, while still protecting the outer layers of the skin. This results in a speedier healing process.
What to Expect
The ThermiTight® procedure is minimally invasive. We use a local anesthetic in the area to keep you comfortable. A very tiny probe is inserted through a very small incision. The incision is so small it doesn’t require stitches. The probe does the work underneath the skin’s surface, sending out radiofrequency heat and energy. This disrupts fat pockets and melts them, and stimulates the collagen. Depending on the number of treated areas, the procedure takes an average of an hour. Throughout the procedure the Thermal Image Guidance provides constant feedback for patient safety.
You may experience slight swelling or redness and mild soreness that will subside over the next couple of days post procedure. Following your ThermiTight®, you can leave the office and immediately resume your everyday routine. Results are often noticed immediately, with maximum effects seen after 6-12 weeks. Collagen production is increased and skin elasticity is improved. If you’re nervous about invasive surgery, or you don’t have time in your schedule for lengthy recovery, ThermiTight® is perfect for you.
