Injectable RF for Skin Laxity
REAL RESULTS IN A SINGLE TREATMENT
ThermiTight™ is the name of a peer-reviewed protocol* described as “thermistor-controlled subdermal skin tightening.” The ThermiRF™ system is used along with a tiny SmartTip™ thermistor probe, which is inserted under the skin to heat subdermal tissues to a user selected specific temperature. During the ThermiTight procedure, internal temperatures are monitored and regulated by the system computer. In addition, Thermal Image Guidance™ provides the physician with real time external temperatures to ensure precision of the heating effect while maintaining safe skin temperatures.

ThermiTight™ Result after 6 weeks. 20cc of bra fat removed from both sides. ThermiRF treatment applied on left side only.
How ThermiTight Works
After a small volume of anesthetic solution is injected into the area to be treated, the tiny ThermiRF™ SmartTip™ thermistor probe is inserted under the skin. The surgeon applies gentle movements to heat up the tissues to the desired level. Skin safety is monitored with Thermal Image Guidance™. Most procedures last less than one hour. After the procedure, a gentle wrap is applied and the patient may resume normal activities the next day.

Tighten! It’s the best yet for the neck. The ideal patient is someone with moderate to marked laxity of the neck.

This ALWAYS gets results!!! First time in twenty years that a device has delivered MORE than was expected of it. Also, the possibilities of treating other conditions successfully are numerous.
