As we age, the skin becomes less effective at replenishing its collagen and elastin matrix. As this supportive layer begins to break down, it causes a loss of volume and the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Traditionally, body lift procedures were one of the best ways to tighten and lift the skin for a rejuvenated and youthful look. Now, you can achieve excellent results with a minimally-invasive, in-office procedure.
What is ThermiTight?
ThermiTight® is a minimally-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin by gently heating the underlying tissues, causing them to contract. Additionally, this heat causes collagen growth for additional results over time. ThermiTight can be used on many different areas of the body where skin is prone to sagging and volume loss, like the abdomen, arms, and neck. ThermiTight can be an effective alternative to surgical procedures which require downtime and larger incisions.
Candidates for ThermiTight
ThermiTight can be an excellent option for patients with mild sagging who are looking for non-surgical improvement. Since it requires a local anesthetic and very small incisions, Dr. DiFrancesco will assess your health history during a consultation to make sure ThermiTight is a safe and effective option for you.
ThermiTight often takes between 1-2 hours to complete in our Atlanta office. First, a topical anesthetic is administered so that you can be comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure. Then, a very small incision is made, though which the specialized, thin wand is inserted. This device administers radiofrequency energy at the same time as monitoring heat for controlled treatment. As the wand is inserted under the surface of the skin, it causes the underlying tissues to gently contract before it’s removed. After treatment, you can return home.

You can expect some mild swelling and redness after treatment, although these usually resolve within a few days. Most patients take one or two days away from work or social engagements. During this time, you should wear a custom-fitted compression garment to reduce swelling and aid in tissue contraction. Over the following weeks and months, you’ll begin to see a reduction in the appearance of sagging and folds as the skin contracts and builds new collagen. Most patients benefit from a series of treatments, and we can create the ideal treatment package for you during a consultation at our Atlanta office.
