If you have noticed that your skin is not quite as tight as it used to be, it may be time to consider the power of Thermi® skin tightening. This treatment utilizes radiofrequency energy to gently heat the skin. You get more collagen and elastin fibers in the target areas, which translates into firmer skin without lengthy downtime.
How Does Thermi® Skin Tightening Work?
Radiofrequency energy is highly effective at heating up the skin in a safe, gentle manner. How exactly your treatment works will depend on the area being treated. Some areas, such as the face, are only treated externally. Other areas, such as the vagina, can be treated from the inside as well, if desired. This is accomplished using a thin probe that causes no discomfort. In either case, the temperature of your skin will be closely monitored to ensure you remain comfortable.
Common areas of treatment with Thermi® skin tightening include:
- Inner thighs
- Upper arms
What to Expect with Thermi® Skin Tightening
Before we can do anything else, we will need to sit down at a consultation. This is our opportunity to learn more about your health history and your opportunity to explain your aesthetic goals. From this meeting, we will be able to determine if Thermi® is the right treatment option for you and develop a plan.
For most people, one treatment session is enough to help them reach their goals. If it is a significant amount of laxity being treated, however, you may benefit from multiple treatments. The results from Thermi® are considered cumulative. How long your results last can vary significantly. The collagen and elastin fibers generated by this procedure will never go away. That being said, this treatment does not stop the natural aging process.
