Are you seeing the beginnings of a turkey waddle on your neck? Do you have batwings hanging from your upper arms? Changes to the skin as you get older can create these animal traits that no one wants. Less collagen and elastin in the skin can result in lost elasticity. When combined with weight gain/loss and gravity, loose or sagging skin can be the result. At Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists, PC, we offer non-surgical skin tightening with our ThermiTight® procedure to remodel and tighten loose skin.
Plastic surgery is used for neck lifts, arm lifts and tummy tucks, but this is not always needed for loose skin. When skin begins losing its firmness due to weight loss or aging, it can often be firmed using energy waves to stimulate collagen production. ThermiTight is a non-surgical treatment that uses heat energy to trigger skin and tissue remodeling to tighten and lift without an invasive procedure or the need for downtime.
How Does ThermiTight Work?
ThermiTight is a powerful skin tightening procedure that delivers heat to the deep layers of the skin with radiofrequency energy. A small probe is used to deliver the RF energy to the exact layers in the skin that need more collagen to tighten and firm the skin. The procedure usually takes less than an hour and it can be used on various areas of the face, neck and body including:
ThermiTight can tighten sagging, crepey or droopy skin in these areas. The results appear over several months as the production of collagen increases, tightening and firming the skin and tissue. The outcomes can look similar to a mini facelift, neck lift, arm lift or tummy tuck, but without the incisions, scars or downtime of surgery.
If you want to look years younger by tightening your face or neck, ThermiTight is an excellent option for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. It can also be used to tighten the upper arms or loose skin on the abdomen.
