Not everyone seeking cosmetic rejuvenation is ready for an invasive facelift or neck lift procedure, but many people still have concerns about the shape and contour of their facial structures. This is where Dr. Kimberly Finder at The Face & Body Place comes in. Thanks to advances in cosmetic medicine, there are now non-surgical options, including ThermiTight®.
How Does ThermiTight® Work?
The principle behind ThermiTight® is to target not only skin laxity but the underlying tissues and fat that have experienced signs of aging. ThermiTight® uses radiofrequency heat to contract existing collagen and stimulate new collagen growth, but it’s more than that. The treatment goes deeper, reducing stubborn fatty pockets that contribute to skin laxity and sagging, such as jowls. A probe is inserted beneath the skin through a tiny, well-placed catheter to deliver the RF energy right where it’s needed most.
Previous RF treatments were performed with a transducer moved over the surface of the skin. The sensitivity of the skin to heat limited the amount of energy that could be delivered without suffering injury. ThermiTight® safely bypasses this issue by placing the RF energy directly into the most problematic tissues without causing damage to the skin. Optimal temperatures can be used deeper for the best results achievable by a non-surgical procedure.
ThermiTight® is an incredibly effective treatment specifically for the jowls and neck area. Excess skin and fatty tissues don’t stand a chance. Not only is your skin tighter, but the subcutaneous support structure is remodeled for a more youthful appearance.

What is the Treatment Like?
ThermiTight® is a painless, minimally invasive procedure that begins with the application of a local anesthetic for patient comfort. There are no incisions, so very little reason to worry about scars. A catheter is inserted near the ears and under the chin to guide the probe into position, and then the RF energy is delivered to the treatment area.
How Long Do Results Last?
Results are visible 3-4 weeks following your ThermiTight® procedure, and the peak of your improvements are visible around the 3 to 6-month mark. These enhancements are expected to last up to 2 years and from just one treatment. There may be a need for maintenance treatments for the long-term and to treat new skin laxity, but you can stay ahead of continued aging with confidence.
Is There Any Downtime?
ThermiTight® is minimally invasive, so it leaves patients with very little downtime. You may feel mildly swollen for a few days, and bruised for a week, but these resolve with little fuss. Busy schedules may be resumed after about two days.
