The results of ThermiTight™ are unbelievable!

Feb 17, 2015 11:22AM ● By Michael Thornton

Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center is now providing the ThermiRF™ platform featuring, ThermiTight™, the latest and revolutionary, FDA-approved aesthetic skin tightening system for the face and body.

We are the first and only certified surgical practice in Mansfield using the ThermiRF™ device and Dr. Michael Thornton is currently treating clients from Mansfield, Arlington, Grand Prairie, Midlothian, Burleson, Waxahachie, Dallas, and Fort Worth, Texas.

ThermiRF™ is the first FDA approved aesthetic device that uses radio frequency (RF) thermal heating and precise temperature control to treat a variety of cosmetic soft tissue areas of the face, neck, jowls, arms, legs, and body. Using the patented ThermiRF™ technology, ThermiTight™is a non-surgical, minimally invasive skin tightening procedure and alternative to surgery that uses radio frequency heat that directly stimulates collagen production below the skin surface, thus improving skin texture and promoting skin tightening.  RealSelf online ratings are 94% for patient satisfaction!

ThermiTight™  can tighten skin and lift your face without the need for major surgery.  It is specifically designed to target the male or female patient 35 – 55 years of age who are too young for a full face lift but show subtle signs of facial aging, jowling, and loose neck skin — otherwise known as a ThermiLift™ procedure.  It can also be used on other areas of skin laxity and skin crepiness on the abdomen, arms, and legs.

During the ThermiTight™ procedure, the small ThermiRF SmartTip thermistor probe is inserted under your skin where controlled heat energy is precisely delivered.  The probe is carefully guided to treat areas of skin laxity and wrinkling while the temperature readings are being directly monitored using precise Thermal Image Guidance using a special heat-sensitive FLIR camera.  The selected tissue, skin, and muscle fascia of the face and neck is carefully heated to a specific end point while both the internal temperature and external temperatures are being monitored in real time.  The ThermiTight procedure only requires local anesthesia and takes approximately one hour to complete.  After the procedure, a gentle neck wrap is applied to minimize swelling.  Normal activities are resumed the next day.  ThermiTight™ procedures are performed at Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center in our private procedure room.   The procedure uses local anesthesia and takes a short period of time to perform.
