ThermiTight is the first aesthetic procedure, which delivers controlled thermal energy under the skin to reverse the effects of aging. ThermiTight is ideal for patients who want more results than non-invasive procedures can deliver and do not want surgery.
What is ThermiTight?
ThermiTight™ is the name of a peer-reviewed protocol* described as “thermistor-controlled subdermal skin tightening.” The ThermiRF™ system is used along with a tiny SmartTip™ thermistor probe, which is inserted under the skin to heat subdermal tissues to a user selected specific temperature. During the ThermiTight procedure, internal temperatures are monitored and regulated by the system computer. In addition, Thermal Image Guidance™ provides the physician with real time external temperatures to ensure precision of the heating effect while maintaining safe skin temperatures.

How ThermiTight Works
ThermiTight is a painless, micro-invasive procedure, which usually takes less than one hour, with little or no downtime. After a small volume of anesthetic solution is injected into the area to be treated, the tiny ThermiRF™ SmartTip™ thermistor probe is inserted under the skin. The surgeon applies gentle movements to heat up the tissues to the desired level. Then, radiofrequency energy is applied directly to the target tissues causing immediate shrinkage. Skin safety is monitored with Thermal Image Guidance™. Most procedures last less than one hour. After the procedure, a gentle wrap is applied and the patient may resume normal activities the next day. Results are immediate and improve over time.
Since ThermiTight focuses on the layers beneath the surface of the skin, it provides real and lasting results. This procedure can help you get tighter, more youthful skin in just one session. It works on all ages and skin types and is non-invasive, which means it requires almost no downtime.
By utilizing radio frequency energy underneath the skin, this procedure actually encourages your body to produce collagen. This helps to tighten skin in areas like the face and the neck, which can knock years off of your appearance. After the procedure, you experience little to no downtime but see results that are long-lasting so you can improve your appearance without going under the knife.

What’s The Downtime?
ThermiTight is a micro-invasive procedure performed using local anesthesia. Patients may experience slight swelling and redness and are usually able to return to normal activity within 24 hours.
How Long Does It Last?
ThermiTight is a single treatment solution which produces a three-dimensional improvement in the appearance of skin laxity, The effects have been shown to last several years.
What to expect:
- Dr. LeBeau injects anesthetic solution into the area that will be treated.
- He then inserts the small ThermiRF SmartTip thermistor probe under the skin, and uses the ThermiRF device to heat the tissues in the areas of concern.
- The skin is continuously being monitored using a thermal camera to assure that the area is being optimally and safely treated.
- The procedure typically takes less than one hour. Patients are usually able to return to normal activity within 24 hours. There can be swelling that generally subsides within 5-7 days.
So, if that area on your face or neck is bothering you, and you want great results but surgery is not something you want to consider, schedule a consultation with a Dr. LeBeau to learn more about the procedure and how it can help you get your desired results.
