ThermiTight™ in Greensboro, NC

If you’re looking for a minimally invasive, non-surgical solution to sagging skin on the lower face, jowls, or loose skin from dramatic weight loss, consider ThermiTight™. ThermiTight™ is a groundbreaking cosmetic procedure that heats the subdermal tissues of the skin to reverse signs of aging and firm up loose skin. The procedure doesn’t involve incisions, and because it bypasses the skin’s surface, it’s safe and effective for treating the face, neck, abdomen, and thighs. Dr. H. Christopher Coley is a highly skilled, double board-certified surgeon and one of the most sought-after professionals for ThermiTight™ throughout Greensboro, Burlington, and surrounding North Carolina communities.

What is ThermiTight™?

ThermiTight™ is the latest skin tightening procedure that uses the body’s own healing process to promote collagen remodeling and skin smoothing. Unlike older skin tightening procedures that used lasers, ultrasound, or light, ThermiTight™ delivers controlled heat deep into the subdermal layers to tighten lax skin without causing damage to the skin’s surface. This procedure can be used on the face or neck and larger areas, such as back, abdomen, arms, and thighs. ThermiTight™ has been shown to successfully:

  • Reduce abdominal fat.
  • Tighten excess skin on the arms.
  • Smooth the appearance of cellulite and other contour irregularities.
  • Tighten jowls to contour the chin line.
  • Diminish the appearance of stretch marks.
  • Tighten and smooth the back to reduce love handles.

How Does ThermiTight™ Work?

Exposing skin tissue to the right amount of thermal energy encourages the body to produce new collagen. ThermiTight™ makes use of this natural process to tighten skin that’s lost its firmness due to aging or drastic weight loss. Thermal energy has been used for decades to tighten skin on the face and neck, but ThermiTight™ pioneered the delivery of heat below the skin’s surface. A tiny thermistor probe, known as the ThermiRF™ Probe, is inserted under the skin at the treatment site, and the doctor can set an optimal temperature for each individual patient to diminish fat and tighten the skin.

Who is a Candidate for ThermiTight™?

If you want to reduce fat and tighten loose skin without an invasive procedure or surgical scars, you may benefit from ThermiTight™. The procedure is ideal for people who exhibit early signs of aging and moderate skin laxity.

What is the ThermiTight™ Procedure Like?

ThermiTight™ is performed through a small needle hole at the treatment site, making it one of the least invasive skin tightening procedures. The procedure is performed under local anesthetic to ensure that patients tolerate treatment with minimal discomfort. When the treatment site is numb, Dr. Coley will thread the ThermiRF™ probe under the skin into the target area. The probe will gradually raise the temperature of the tissue layers below the skin’s surface until the desired amount of shrinkage is achieved. The entire length of the procedure depends on the size and number of areas to be treated, but ThermiTight™ typically does not exceed 60 minutes.

How Long Until Results Are Noticeable?

The procedure causes immediate shrinkage of excess fat deposits and loose skin, but the actual results will become apparent two to three weeks following treatment. Results continue to improve over time, with more noticeable results appearing within two to three months and optimal results within six months to a year.

What Should I Expect After the Treatment?

Most patients experience mild to moderate swelling at the treatment site, but since ThermiTight™ is noninvasive, swelling tends to subside quickly, making recovery short and easy. In fact, most patients resume their daily activities and routines in as little as three days following the procedure.

As collagen production and remodeling continues, the results will gradually progress over time. ThermiTight™ is so effective that a single treatment can provide permanent skin tightening that lasts for years.

What Does ThermiTight™ Cost?

ThermiTight™ is considered a cosmetic procedure, so the costs are generally not covered by health insurance providers. Dr. Coley accepts cash, personal checks, credit cards, and other financing options to make tight, firm skin accessible and affordable for his patients.
