At birth, our bodies have sufficient supples of collagen and elastin, the natural properties that keep our skin soft and resilient. But as we age, these nutrients begin to decrease, which in turn causes our skin to lose elasticity. Once elasticity begin to diminsh, our lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin appear. You may be a candidate for nonsurgical skin tightening with ThermiTight if you are experiencing the common symptoms of aging. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Caruth is proud to offer ThermiTight from his Plano, TX facility, using radiofrequency heat energy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin from deep within your skin. ThermiTight can tone the skin on your neck, breast, arms, abdominal wall, thighs, and knees without the expense or recovery associated with surgical procedures. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Caruth today to learn more about this innovative technology.
While surgical procedures may offer more instantaneous results, nonsurgical skin tightening offers fantastic, long-term improvement for those who do not wish to undergo plastic surgery. ThermiTight can be used to treat most areas of the face and body, including the neck, stomach, arms, and thighs. Ideal candidates for ThermiTight are healthy and at or near their goal weight. Patients who see the most exciting outcomes are those who are experiencing skin laxity on the face and body, and have lines and wrinkles they wish to diminish. If you wish to boost the overall health and appearance of your skin, ThermiTight may be the right procedure for you.
During your consultation with Dr. Caruth, he will help you decide what type of anesthesia will be used during your procedure. ThermiTight is a minimally invasive procedure but does involve the insertion of a small probe beneath the subdermal layer of tissue. Your procedure will be performed in our onsite operating room where your anesthesia will be administered. After you are comfortable and ready, Dr. Caruth will begin the treatment by inserting the small ThermiTight electrode into your treatment area, where it will express heat and energy to stimulate the production of collagen. Since you will not have large incisions to care for, you will be able to return to normal daily activities very soon.
What to Expect
Due to the use of anesthesia, you should plan to have a responsible adult drive you home for your procedure. Dr. Caruth will explain how to care for yourself post-treatment during your consultation and again after your procedure. You should keep the area of the probe insertion clean to protect from infection and be careful to take any medications prescribed to you by Dr. Caruth. The results you will receive from ThermiTight will be lasting and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. Your skin will continue to age overtime, but ThermiTight will help you to age with grace and remain youthful-looking for years to come.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does nonsurgical skin tightening cost?
The cost for your ThermiTight treatment will depend on the size and number of areas being treated. Prior to your treatment, Dr. Caruth will discuss your out-of-pocket costs with you and customize a specific treatment plan to help you meet your aesthetic goals.
What is collagen?
Collagen is a protein-based substance that is naturally produced by the body and works to keep your skin hydrated, elastic, and firm. Through the natural aging process, our natural supplies of collagen slows down, leading to looser, thinner, and less-elastic skin. ThermiTight can help your body to produce more collagen at a pace that will rejuvenate your skin.
What kind of side effects can I expect after my treatment?
ThermiTight can cause some redness, temporary swelling, and/or numbness of the treated area. These symptoms typically subside within a few days. Your results will continue to develop in the months following the treatment, but some patients require follow-up treatments for optimal results.
