Dr. Robert Langdon is pleased to announce ThermiTight, the new, minimally invasive way to tighten sagging skin on the face, neck, and body, now available at The Langdon Center on the Connecticut Shoreline. Dr. Langdon recently made an appearance on New Haven’s WTNH Channel 8 "Connecticut Style" to discuss the exciting new treatment.
“ThermiTight uses safe, effective radio frequency energy to heat tissue beneath the surface of the skin, causing contraction and tightening of sagging skin,” explains Dr. Langdon. “The procedure itself poses little to no downtime and requires only safe, local anesthesia.”
In addition to tightening skin on the lower face and neck (one of the first and most stubborn signs of aging) ThermiTight also improves other areas of the body that can benefit from tightening or lifting. Other commonly treated areas are the breasts (the ThermiTight procedure is frequently combined with breast lipo-reduction), sagging skin of the abdomen (often the result of pregnancy or weight loss), and of the upper arms (“bat wings”) and knee areas.
During the ThermiTight procedure, the treatment area is first numbed with local anesthesia, then a tiny incision is made in the skin (no stitches are needed). The ThermiTight electrode is then introduced below the surface of the skin, delivering radio frequency energy that heats the tissue, causing contraction, tightening and lifting. The real-time temperature of the skin is measured throughout the entire procedure, both below the skin surface (the RF electrode has a temperature sensor) as well as on the skin surface through the use of an external video camera, to assure patient safety.
While some results with ThermiTight are visible right away, full improvement gradually appears in the months following treatment and results are long lasting. The procedure itself typically takes less than one hour, with many patients resuming their normal activities right away, due to very minimal post-treatment redness and swelling.
For some patients, the ThermiTight procedure can put off surgical procedures such as a necklift or facelift.
