ThermiTight was just introduced to our patients at Pena Plastic Surgery. This technology allows tightening of skin anywhere in the Body without "surgery". The 'injectibel radiofrequency' probe is inserted just under the skin after a local anesthetic has been injected. The skin and the underlying attachments to deeper tissues are tightened and stimulated to produce collagen and elastin to smooth the area. Final results may take as long as 6-9 months to see. Areas where this has been used effectively with amazing results include: the lower face and neck, the arms, the knees, and pretty much anywhere where there is loose skin. The post procedure discomfort is MINIMAL and downtime is also. It is not a substitute for surgery in those cases where only surgery is indicated but it does allow certain individuals who may not need surgery or are not ready for surgery, to have a great option.
The same device can be used in a similar fashion to take care of excessive underarm sweating by "stunning" the sweat glands. This procedure is Called ThermiDry for the hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating). This procedure can be permanent but often requires a touch up.The alternative medical treatment is either Botox or a procedure involving operating on the nerves in the neck.
The nonsurgical treatment of the under eye bags is also very exciting and is totally Non-Invasive and takes abou 15 minutes a session (4 sessions each 2 weeks apart). No anesthesia is required and the small pad/probe heats and stimulates the collagen in the traeted tissues. This is called ThermiSmooth.
