You want to look your best; you really do. But lately, while looking in the mirror, maybe while brushing your teeth, or drying your hair, you’ve noticed the gobble, gobble of the wattle, wattle. And it’s like opening the front door and finding an uninvited-holiday-house-guest standing on your front porch.
As we age, our skin becomes drier, thinner and less fortified with collagen and elastin, especially around the platysma muscle of our necks. And then, of course, gravity walks in and — well, there you have it; an unsavory recipe for turkey neck.
But guess what? Not to worry. Plano Aesthetics now offers a new treatment for the uninvited-holiday-house guest, aka the dreaded turkey neck; it’s called ThermiTight® Skin Tightening.
ThermiTight® is a minimally invasive skin tightening treatment that uses radio frequency energy to heat up the tissue beneath the skin’s surface. A tiny probe is introduced underneath the skin through a needle hole. The tip of the probe has an electrode that emits tiny bursts of radio frequency energy. The probe has a temperature gauge that allows monitoring of the exact temperature that is being reached at the target. This is also done in conjunction with a state of the art thermal camera so Dr. Caruth can continuously monitor the temperature at the surface of the skin. The body, in response, begins to generate new collagen, resulting in firmer, tighter, more elastic skin.
Not only can ThermiTight® Skin Tightening be used on the neck and jowls, but also most any other place where loose skin or sagging occurs, such as arms (batwings), abdomen, face, breasts and even your back.
ThermiTight® is done in our office under local anesthesia and takes about an hour. So, if you’re ready to look your best during the holidays, contact us at 972-985-8080 and find out if ThermiTight® is right for you.
