SKIN TIGHTENING SPECIALIST
Whether that saggy, loose skin is the result of aging or a significant weight loss, surgery is no longer the only option for tightening. At the Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center, with offices in Sharonville, Cincinnati, Ohio and Centerville, Dayton, Ohio, our cosmetic medical specialists offer minimally-invasive skin tightening for areas of the face and body with the revolutionary new ThermiRF technology.
ThermiSmooth is a painless, non-invasive skin tightening procedure, in which the skin’s surface is heated via a handheld device that emits radiofrequency energy to the surface of the skin. This stimulates the new collagen production. Many patients begin to see results after their initial treatment, but typically results are seen between 3 and 6 months following treatment. Treatments can be repeated multiple times, if necessary. Two ThermiSmooth devices are available, one is designed to tighten saggy skin on the face and the other, on the body.
WHAT IS THERMIRF SKIN TIGHTENING?
The ThermiRF skin tightening system is a trailblazing new, minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that delivers surgery-like skin-tightening and toning results without the lengthy downtime, pain, risks or cost of surgery. FDA approved ThermiRF uses radiofrequency to raise the temperature deep into the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, and even melt fat for smoother, tighter, more youthful-looking skin. It can be used to tighten skin in the lower face, jowls and neck area, along with, upper arms, abdomen, knees and elbows.
WHAT DOES THERMIRF TREATMENT ENTAIL?
After applying a numbing cream and a local to the treatment area, your specialist will insert the tiny SmartTip™ thermistor probe under the skin to heat subdermal tissues to a specific temperature. Different temperatures can be set to either tighten skin, melt away unwanted fat, or reduce the appearance of cellulite. Small areas can be treated in 20-30 minutes; larger areas take an hour. The carefully controlled thermal energy increases the natural production of collagen in the treatment area. Collagen is an essential building block that supports skin and facial tissues in place. By stimulating the production of collagen, your skin becomes tighter and more youthful looking.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
After the initial treatment, your skin will be noticeably smoother with an overall improvement in texture and laxity. Patients vary, but for optimum results, a course of 3 to 5 treatment sessions is typically recommended. One of our specialists can help you choose the package that’s right for you. ThermiTight is a minimally invasive procedure, there will be minimal recovery. After the treatment, some redness and swelling will be visible that will subside quickly. Most patients resume their normal activities within a couple of days. ThermiRF has become immensely popular and has a high satisfaction rate. Best of all, improved skin can last up to 2 years.
