ThermiTight tightens loose, sagging skin by applying (radiofrequency energy) heat below the surface of the skin to stimulate your body’s own production of natural collagen. By using RF energy and a temperature-controlled probe, your physician will gently heat targeted tissues below your skin, until the desired endpoint is achieved. This procedure is often combined with other procedures such as liposuction or CoolSculpting.
Benefits of ThermiTight
- Single treatment
- Manageable downtime
- No surgical scarring
- For all skin types and tones
To ensure optimal results, we prescribe strict Pre-Treatment and Post-Treatment care guidelines for our patients to follow.
During the consultation, your physician will assess your skin and tissues to determine if ThermiTight is the right option for you. Although ThermiTight is a great alternative for those patients not ready for a facelift, patients with severe skin laxity may require a surgical solution for optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions

ThermiTight uses a local anesthetic to prepare for the procedure. Some patients may experience minimal discomfort during the injection of the numbing agent. Once the area is numbed, little-to-no discomfort is reported. Rather, patients may feel pressure or warmth, but not pain.
Areas of treatment may include the jawline, neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, buttocks, thighs and knees.
Most patients resume their normal activities a day or two after treatment. Immediately following treatment, you could experience minimal redness, swelling, tenderness or bruising.
