Hate that loose skin at your jawline and neck, but not quite ready for a facelift? ThermiTight may be the perfect choice for you!

Coming soon to LeBeau Clinic

We are excited to announce the newest technology coming to LeBeau Clinic in July.  Today, we purchased a system called ThermiRF. 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.  By mid-July we will be offering this exciting new technology.

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.

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.
