Also known as ThermiLift, this skin tightening technique uses radiofrequency energy applied via a fiber enclosed in a tiny tube (cannula) to safely heat the tissue just under your skin’s surface. This action tightens the skin by contracting the tissue in the targeted area. It also stimulates production of substances that repair and tone your skin, such as collagen.
ThermiTight can also target fat cells and effectively reduce inches as it tightens skin. Originally designed for treating the neck and jowls, it also works well on the tummy, thighs, knees, and other troublesome areas. It’s considered one of the most effective treatments available for tightening skin without surgery.
Radiofrequency (RF) energy has been used for many years to tighten and tone skin. The older systems used a special device called a transducer to deliver energy to the surface of the skin, which sometimes damaged overlying tissue. ThermiTight delivers the RF energy below the outer layers of skin. This enables it to deliver optimal heating for better results without the risk of damaging your skin.
Depending on the area being treated, sessions can last from one to two hours. No incisions are required for the procedure. Instead, tiny puncture wounds made by small needles are used to insert the cannula. Local anesthetic is applied before treatment begins to eliminate discomfort. You may experience mild swelling after the session, but it generally clears within three to seven days.
The UltraSlim system uses a specific type of red light to “trick” your fat cells into creating a pore in the cell membrane. This induces the fatty acids and triglycerides in the cell to drain into the fluid or interstitial space that surrounds cells. These fatty wastes are then expelled from the body through natural processes. The pore in the fat cell closes after 48-72 hours.
UltraSlim uses light technology rather than heat or cold to target fat cells just under the skin’s surface. This makes it a completely painless procedure that requires no incisions, healing, or recovery time. There’s no risk of damaging your skin’s surface. UltraSlim is considered safe for adults of all ages and skin types, and results are fast, often within just hours of a session. In addition to resulting in lost inches from your body, the red light system also encourages collagen and elastin production, which tightens your skin.
