What is ThermiTight™?
ThermiTight™ is an innovative cosmetic procedure for tightening and firming skin that has lost its elasticity due to the aging process or dramatic weight loss. ThermiTight™ is the first treatment for sagging skin that utilizes safe, controlled heat underneath the skin.
ThermiTight™ is useful in treating large areas,such as the belly, back, neck, arms, legs and hips.
ThermiTight™ treatment benefits include:
- Stomach fat reduction
- Tightening sagging skin on the arms
- Treating cellulite and fatty deposits
- Minimizing the appearance of stretch marks
- Tightening the jaw, which results in an improved chin profile
- Tightening the back, leading to a flatter visual line
How does ThermiTight™ work?
When a body part receives sufficient heat, new collagen is formed in that area. ThermiTight™ takes advantage of this natural process to firm and tighten skin that has lost elasticity due to aging or significant weight loss.
ThermiTight™ is the first treatment of its kind to utilize safe and controlled heat energy underneath the skin with an innovative device called the ThermiRF™ probe that both tightens skin and reduces fat.
Who makes a good candidate for ThermiTight™?
The ideal candidate for ThermiTight™ treatment is one who desires firmer skin and the removal of excess fat but wants to avoid more invasive procedures that result in significant risk or downtime.
Suitable ThermiTight™ Treatment Areas:
- Lower face and neck
ThermiTight™ treatments can be performed in conjunction with other treatments,such as ThermiSmooth™ and liposuction for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin’s surface. Those who have a large amount of sagging skin should also consider undergoing a facelift, and then use ThermiTight™ to enhance and maintain their results.
What is the ThermiTight™ procedure like?
ThermiTight™ is a treatment that is minimally invasive. It involves the use of a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. After numbing the treatment area, Dr. Mittelman will move the ThermiRF™ probe into place. The probe will then heat the target tissue until optimum results are apparent. Treatment with ThermiTight™ normally takes around one hour.
How long until I notice results from ThermiTight™?
ThermiTight™ coaxes the body into a healing response that gradually becomes evident two to three weeks following treatment. The treatment will continue producing noticeable results over the course of the following two to three months, with complete results expected in six to 12 months.
What should I expect following my ThermiTight™ treatment?
One advantage of ThermiTight™ treatment is that your downtime should be very brief because it is a minimally invasive procedure. Some minor swelling is normal right after your procedure, but it should subside very quickly without any additional treatment.
Your results will only improve over time. Your body will respond to ThermiTight™ treatment by gradually increasing the production of collagen. Just one treatment can lead to results that last for years.

Because ThermiTight™ is considered to be an elective procedure, it is not normally covered by insurance. However, Dr. Mittelman is committed to making this life-changing procedure available to everyone by offering a number of financing options to make your procedure more affordable.
