ThermiTight®- Skin Tightening
The ThermiTight® procedure is ideal for any patient looking to address areas of loose skin with a single treatment non-surgical solution! During this procedure, Dr. Oliver will numb the area to be treated with a local anesthetic and insert a small probe beneath the skin that uses temperature-controlled radiofrequency to heat the underlying network of the skin which will simultaneously cause tightening and smoothing of the skin while reducing small pockets of fat.
Total Women's Health is excited to be the first provider in Maryland to offer the second generation of ThermiTight® treatments via the Arvati® platform, which allows for faster treatment times, more consistent energy delivery and optimized results!
Areas commonly treated with ThermiTight® include the lower face, neck, tummy, arms, back, thighs, knees, and even sagging breasts!
Frequently Asked Questions
QUESTION: How many treatments do I need?
ANSWER: Most patients will only need one ThermiTight® procedure. This will be discussed in your initial consultation.
QUESTION: Does the procedure hurt?
ANSWER: The area to be treated is first numbed with a tumescent solution containing local anesthetic. Some patients who have been treated reported feeling a mild sensation of heat in the treatment area.
QUESTION: Can I have ThermiTight® done in conjunction with another procedure?
ANSWER: Yes! Many patients have opted to be treated with ThermiTight in conjunction with a fat removal procedure such as Tumescent Liposuction or CoolSculpting. We will take the time to discuss these options with you in your initial consultation.
QUESTION: Is there any downtime after the procedure?
ANSWER: Patients are likely to experience some mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort after the procedure, but it will subside within a few days. You will be asked to wear a compression garment for a short period of time after the procedure to ensure optimal results.
Question: What should I expect after my ThermiTight® procedure?
Answer: Due to the application of temperature-controlled radiofrequency, the body’s natural healing response will be stimulated leading to an increase in collagen production. Most patients begin see a difference after one month, and results will continue to improve up to a year after the procedure.
