The skin tightening benefits of ThermiRF Tight are produced by inserting a small electrode under the skin. Once it is inserted, the device uses radio frequency energy to heat the tissue to a selected therapeutic temperature. Research shows this procedure stimulates collagen production which will give the appearance of lifting or tightening.
ThermiRF® works on the dermis which is the layer beneath the epidermis. There is some downtime with this procedure because there is some swelling that lasts for several days. ThermiRF Tight is a one-treatment procedure, whereas some other procedures require a series of treatments to see optimal results.
To decide whether ThermiRF® is right for you, it’s best to make an appointment with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in aesthetics like Dr. Farzad R. Nahai in Atlanta, GA. He will examine you and share his expertise to help you make the right decision about which facial tightening treatment would be most beneficial for you.
Ultherapy®, Skin-Tightening Using Ultrasound
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive way to lift and tighten your face, forehead, neck, décolletage, or chin. It is FDA approved to lift and tighten. It has the added benefit of improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Ultrasound, which is the basis for Ultherapy®, has been used by doctors for over 50 years.
Ultherapy® uses ultrasound to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin without surgical cutting or injection. During the treatment, the Ultherapy® applicator and gel will be applied to the skin. The ultrasound image allows the technicians a view of what’s beneath the skin. This special view allows them to place the energy where it will do the most good.
As a patient, you might feel the energy as it is delivered. The energy begins the collagen-building process. Most do not consider the treatment painful. The treatment time varies and can take from 30-90 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated.
After the treatment, some patients may have some redness which quickly fades. Other symptoms such as tingling or swelling are mild and don’t last long. Most return to normal activities immediately with no downtime.
Ultherapy® is safe and non-invasive. The results are natural and there is no downtime.
