WHAT IS THERMITIGHT?
ThermiTight is the first aesthetic procedure, which delivers controlled thermal energy under the skin to reverse the effects of aging. ThermiTight is ideal for patients who want more results than non-invasive procedures can deliver and DO NOT want surgery. It’s great for problem areas of the face, neck, tummy and thighs. Clinical studies have shown ThermiTight is safe and effective.
HOW IT WORKS
ThermiTight is a painless, micro-invasive procedure, which usually takes less than one hour, with little or no downtime. A tiny probe is inserted under the skin. Then, radiofrequency energy is applied directly to the target tissues causing immediate shrinkage. Results are immediate and improve over time.
WHAT’S THE DOWNTIME?
ThermiTight is a micro-invasive procedure performed using local anesthesia. Patients may experience slight swelling and redness and are usually able to return to normal activity within 24 hours.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
ThermiTight is a single treatment solution which produces a three-dimensional improvement in the appearance of skin laxity, The effects have been shown to last several years.
Non-invasive Skin Smoothing
PRECISE, GENTLE EPIDERMAL HEATING
ThermiSmooth™ is performed using a specially designed thermistor regulated hand piece, which is supplied with the ThermiRF™ system. ThermiSmooth delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface. ThermiSmooth treatments are gentle and patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage.
Clinical studies show that the collagen in skin will shrink when heated to a sustained temperatures in excess of 40°C. Further, it has been shown that when the skin is heated to this level, an inflammatory process is engaged which can stimulate fibroblasts to produce new collagen over a period of time. Therefore, the challenge is to deliver precise amounts of heat, without risking overheating the tissues and causing patient discomfort.
How ThermiSmooth™ Works
After applying a small amount of coupling gel, the ThermiSmooth™ hand piece is applied to the skin’s surface. The ThermiRF™ system is set to a specific target temperature (i.e.., 42°C – 45°C). The hand piece is gently moved in a sweeping or circular fashion while gradually heating up the skin surface. As the skin’s temperature rises to the targeted temperature, the ThermiRF computer automatically adjusts the energy output to ensure precision of heating. A small zone is treated for about 5 minutes to achieve the goal of sustained heating to the target tissues. Treatments are repeated several times to achieve the desired cosmetic result.
LONG-TERM ALTERNATIVE TO NEUROTOXINS
ThermiRase™ is a micro-invasive procedure based on a peer reviewed protocol* to disable the nerves which control the muscles responsible for glabella frown lines. This procedure applies radio frequency energy to selected nerves. In a recent study, the effect lasted more than one year in almost 80% of the subjects, thus validating the opportunity for a long term alternative to neurotoxins.
With ThermiRase™, a series of thermal lesions are created along the nerve pathways which control the muscles that cause frown lines. The effect is immediate.
How ThermiRase works
First, the physician will map the nerves using an external nerve stimulator. This will help him to know where to create the lesions during the procedure.
Next, the physician insert the ThermiRF SmartTipTM probe with Injector PortTM under the skin and begin to create lesions along the mapped nerve pathway. Lesioning is done in three steps:
- Stimulate (locate the nerve)
- Inject a drop of local anesthesia
- Treat – apply heat for about 1 minute
This process is repeated several times until the patient is unable to make a frown.
