Many patients may wonder why the skin begins to sag, and why it may be affecting them so negatively. Sagging skin on the neck and face can have worse effects than on other parts of the body. This is due to the fact that our necks and faces are always visible and can barely be hidden. Many people with sagging skin on the face and neck area may feel bad about their physical appearance, self-esteem, sense of self-worth, and may also even be prone to infections and rashes, which will only complicate your concerns.

How Does ThermiTight Work?
Unlike most invasive surgical and non-surgical procedures, ThermiTight’s innovative and revolutionary approach utilizes radio frequency energy to heat the umderlying tissues that lie beneath the skin. By monitoring the temperature of the skin both from the outside (with a specialized heat detecting camera) and internally with a temperature probe, proper heat is delivered to the tissue to ensure skin tightening without damaging the tissue itself. This technique provides optimal healing and minimal recovery.
ThermiTight is performed with the use of local anesthesia to numb the treated area; then the physician will insert a small probe that heats the deeper, underlying tissues. Additionally, this probe measures and monitors temperature and maintains stable heat levels during the procedure. A thermal camera is also used to help monitor the level of heat to the surface skin. If temperatures rise to an abnormal level, the probe is shut off immediately to allow for maximum awareness and safety during the procedure.
ThermiTight mainly treats saggy skin. However, it has many benefits that can be used for just about every saggy area. Some of the most common areas of saggy skin include:

ThermiTight Treatment Process
ThermiTight is a procedure that happens while the patients are awake, and find themselves quite comfortable. Once the patient is comfortable, Dr. Korman will insert the ThermiTight probe underneath the skin and make back and forth movements throughout the treatment area. The probe delivers the radio frequency energy into the deep tissue to help stimulate collagen production.
A heat-sensitive FLIR camera then measures the amount of energy and heat that is being applied in the treated area, so that both internal and external temperatures are measured in real time. After the procedure, the punctures of the patient are covered with a compression wrap. The process typically takes anywhere from 30-60 minutes.
Recovery downtime is minimal, but the patient may experience some minimal swelling or tenderness in the treated areas. These symptoms typically go away after a few days.
Patients are advised to wear a compression wrap around the treated area as it will prevent further swelling and cruising. Tissue may also become firm in smaller areas, and if bruising persists, the patient is recommended to apply makeup to the bruised areas, until they heal.
Patients should start to see results in about 30 days, and generally gets better over the next several months, and reach their prime after a year. The results of ThermiTight are long lasting.
