About Skin Tightening

At birth, you have a full stock of the nutrients collagen and elastin that keep your skin soft, smooth, resilient, and healthy. However, this stock of nutrients becomes depleted and the skin of your body and face decreases in resiliency, causing wrinkles, lines, and skin that sags. If you want to improve the firmness and general health of your skin without plastic surgery, look into nonsurgical skin tightening at Basile Plastic Surgery in Naples, FL. With state-of-the-art equipment, the ThermiTight device uses radiofrequency energy that encourages the production of elastin and collagen in the areas treated so you can develop healthier, firmer skin. During the assessment and consultation, aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Andrea Basile will be happy to perform nonsurgical skin tightening to his Naples, FL patients looking to firm the skin on their face and body without the recovery time and expense of a surgical lift procedure. Make an appointment with Dr. Basile in Naples, FL to find out more information about the ThermiTight treatment.

Ideal Candidates

Surgery for skin tightening, or "lifts" like a face or body lift, are still the best option to improve loose, sagging skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening may be a good option if you don't want to have cosmetic surgery. ThermiTight may be done on many areas of the body and face, such as the stomach, neck, thighs, and arms. The ideal patients for this treatment:

  • Are in good general health
  • Are near or at a stable, healthy weight
  • Have light or medium loose skin on the body or face
  • Have wrinkles or lines on the body or face
  • Want to enhance the appearance and health of their skin

Procedure Technique

To start the session, the skin to be treated will be sanitized to eliminate any dirt, oil, makeup, and lotions. Local anesthesia options may be considered if you would prefer; however, many patients feel that any possible pain from the radiofrequency energy is temporary and manageable. As soon as you are ready, a handpiece with a small electrode will be inserted underneath the skin of the area being treated. The radiofrequency energy released by the handpiece heats up the tissues to a safe level and encourages the body to begin the production of elastin and collagen that will firm and tighten the skin. A session may take around 30 – 90 minutes based on the size and if multiple areas are being treated. Once the session is complete, you'll be allowed to leave and get back to your daily routine.

What to Expect

Following your skin tightening appointment, the affected skin can be mildly inflamed, numb, or red. This is expected and you will clear up naturally in several days. In your consult, Dr. Basile will talk about methods to care for the treated skin at home after your session, like keeping the skin protected and moisturized from the sun and environmental damage. Many patients won't have noticeable improvements right after their session. Since the elastin and collagen stimulation and production is a slow process, you should have the total results of the procedure around several months after your session, though you may begin to see some results after around one month. Your results should last a long time and enhance the general appearance and health of your skin. You may require several sessions to achieve the most ideal outcome. At your initial consultation, Dr. Basile can help you determine your personalized plan for treatment to meet your concerns and goals.
