Ask people to name what they think is the worst thing about getting older, and many will say it is not the physical aches and pains but the cosmetic effects. Sagging skin on your face, loose skin on your neck, and lack of overall skin volume are all aspects of aging that can haunt you.
If you feel the same, then you might be a candidate for ThermiTight, an innovative non-surgical facelift treatment that helps smooth your skin and restore a youthful appearance. At world-acclaimed Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, we provide a wide range of skin tightening cosmetic treatment options for our San Diego dermatology patients interested in body contouring and reducing the adverse aesthetic effects of aging.
What is ThermiTight?
It is a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure that sends targeted radiofrequency (RF) energy via a probe deep into your skin. This radiofrequency energy heats and contracts your skin at temperatures of 50-65º Celsius, the optimal range for stimulating collagen production deep beneath your skin. This strengthens your skin’s underlying support system, which, in turn, firms and tightens sagging, loose skin so that you regain your youthful, glowing appearance!
Why You Should Consider Skin Tightening Treatment
Also effective for treatment of wrinkles, ThermiTight is a short procedure with virtually no post-procedure downtime. While many of our patients report no pain during their loose skin reduction therapy, you can choose to have a local numbing agent administered to make the process even more comfortable.
This procedure can reverse the effects of aging in many parts of your body, and it is safe and effective regardless of your age. Although aging is one main reason for your body’s reduced rate of collagen production, when you’re younger, the environment can also affect this rate of production. With this non-invasive skin tightening therapy, you can enjoy improved, younger-looking skin regardless of your age or skin tone.

Benefits of ThermiTight
Facelift surgery provides many cosmetic benefits, but many people don’t want to undergo this procedure for two crucial reasons:
- No interest in undergoing an invasive, painful procedure
- Long recovery time (it often takes several weeks to recover)
In contrast, there is almost no downtime with ThermiTight and it causes little or no pain. Furthermore, many of our patients undergo this non-invasive facelift or neck lift only once because they get the optimal results they are looking for from a single session.
Additionally, because this therapy stirs new collagen growth, your results gradually improve in the weeks and months following your session. So as good as you look within days after one treatment, you’ll look even more gorgeous after a few weeks! The process is so gradual, so natural, that no one will suspect you’ve had any work done.
Loose Skin Reduction Areas
This innovative RF technology can be used for wrinkle reduction almost anywhere on the body, but the most popular areas of the body that our patients choose for this non-invasive radiofrequency treatment are in the following places:
- Arms/Upper Arms
Generally, ThermiTight is meant to be a single treatment session, but it also depends on you and the targeted area, so additional sessions could be necessary to reduce sagging skin and achieve the optimal results you are looking for.
Another benefit of ThermiTight involves side effects: there are almost none, especially considering the benefits.
Though you most likely will experience some swelling and redness following treatment, they are mild and temporary and should disappear within 24-72 hours. The treated area may also be sensitive for three to five days.
ThermiTight vs Ultherapy
A common question we get about non-surgical facelift options regards ThermiTight vs Ultherapy, perhaps because they both use innovative, non-invasive techniques for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.
The simple difference is that Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to tighten your skin while ThermiTight uses radiofrequency energy. More nuanced differences are the effects that each type of technology has on your skin and cosmetic goals.
