BaconMD is pleased to offer two advanced skin tightening solutions - ThermiTight and Venus Freeze. Dr. Bacon will discuss your goals with you and together you can determine the best option to help you achieve the look you desire.

ThermiTight - Real Results with Just One Treatment

ThermiTight is a new approach that uses safe, effective radio frequency (RF) energy to heat tissue below the surface of the skin, causing contraction and tightening of loose skin. This procedure effectively stimulates the production of collagen to tighten and smooth the skin on the eyes, face, neck, and body.

This procedure is minimally invasive, requires only local anesthesia and has little to no downtime. Areas of the body that need tightening and lifting can benefit from ThermiTight including skin of the face and neck, breasts, abdomen and upper arms.

ThermiTight skin rejuvenation:

  • Delivers lasting improvements
  • Offers predictable outcomes
  • Requires minimal or no “down time”

How is ThermiTight different other RF and ultrasound procedures?

Other technologies treat the skin using a device that is placed on the exterior of the skin and directed downward. ThermiTight technology is unique and can deliver more dramatic results because it has an internal probe that enables Dr. Bacon to apply the treating energy BELOW the skin surface - directly to the targeted collagen layer, to allow for more reliable results. Another unique feature of ThermiTight is its continuous temperature monitor located on the internal probe. This allows continuous monitoring of the energy below the skin surface which enables Dr. Bacon to administer the precise amount of heat to the collagen layer required for effective skin tightening.

Who can receive ThermiTight?

ThermiTight is safe for both light and dark complexions. It is ideal for people who are near their ideal weight, but have small areas of fat and sagging skin. This treatment can be done in conjunction with SmartLipo if excess fat is present and the patient needs additional skin tightening.

Is ThermiTight safe?

Radiofrequency (RF) technology has been used safely and successfully in medicine for more than 75 years. RF has been established in aesthetic medicine as a means to induce skin tightening, reduce wrinkles and improvement body contouring. Because of the built-in safety features of the ThermiTight RF system, side effects are very unlikely. The device monitors the actual beneath-the-skin temperature, which is kept below the threshold that can cause thermal damage.

How much downtime will I have with ThermiTight?

The procedure poses minimal post-treatment redness and swelling—many patients resume their normal activities right way.

What does a ThermiTight procedure entail?

After the skin is numbed with local anesthesia, a tiny incision is made in the skin and the ThermiTight electrode is introduced below the surface. The electrode is the size of a needle so no stitches are needed. The electrode provides RF energy while simultaneously measuring the real-time temperature at its tip. Only enough RF energy is delivered to heat the tissue to a safe temperature.

How long does a ThermiTight treatment take?

The ThermiTight treatment typically takes less than one hour.

How soon will I see the results?

There is often immediate visible tightening, but maximal improvement can take three or four months.
