ThermiTight™ for Tighter, Younger-looking Skin
Patients searching for a minimally invasive skin tightening treatment now have a great new option. ThermiTight™ uses a small, heated subdermal probe to improve skin elasticity and minimize small pockets of fat. Dr. Richard Moore can perform a ThermiTight™ procedure at his St. Louis practice to improve the contours of your neck, arms, thighs, and other areas.

How ThermiTight™ Works
ThermiTight™ can help you achieve smoother, younger-looking skin in as little as an hour, and with almost no down time. The procedure begins with the application of a local anesthetic at the treatment site. After you are comfortable, a specialized SmartTip™ probe is inserted through a small incision to penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin. This probe is heated with radio frequency, an energy used in various anti-aging therapies. This heat stimulates the production of collagen, the protein that gives skin supple, youthful elasticity.
During your treatment, the probe will be gently moved back and forth in your subdermal layers. Dr. Moore will focus on the specific areas that need a little extra firming and contouring. To ensure an effective and even treatment, Dr. Moore will closely monitor how the tissue is reacting throughout the procedure, and the thermistor technology also automatically adjusts the radiofrequency level according to the skin temperature. Meanwhile, an infrared camera will be used to ensure that a safe temperature is maintained throughout treatment.
After the hour-long procedure, patients can leave our practice wearing a sterile wrap on the treatment areas. Patients can typically resume normal activities the following day, and the results will become increasingly apparent over the course of the four months following treatment. To maintain the effects of ThermiTight™, patients may choose Venus Freeze® or Forma as follow-up therapies.
ThermiTight™ is often the preferred solution for patients who want tighter skin and reduced cellulite, but are not ready for more invasive surgical procedures. ThermiTight™ has a very short recovery time compared to cosmetic surgeries, and can provide beautiful, natural-looking results. Many patients choose to have ThermiTight™ performed on areas where they have experienced fat loss, and have drooping skin. Other patients want to overcome lax or sagging skin caused by the natural aging process. ThermiTight™ can also produce a noticeable improvement in areas prone to cellulite by both reducing the size of the fat deposits and smoothing out the dimples in the skin.
ThermiTight™ can be used to tighten the skin along the jawline, chin, neck, arms, inner thighs, knees, and more. It is an outstanding stand-alone treatment, and can be used in conjunction with liposuction for enhanced results. Patients can get sleeker thighs by combining ThermiTight™ with Tickle Lipo™. For patients wanting to overcome fat deposits in the neck or around the knees, ThermiTight™ can be seamlessly incorporated into a single treatment session.
