These changes can be made worse by sun damage, weight fluctuations, hormonal shifts, and genetics, taking a toll on your self-esteem. If you're seeking to address these early signs of aging and enhance the appearance of loose skin and stubborn pockets of fat, our ThermiTight treatment offers a non-surgical solution.

What is ThermiTight?

ThermiTight is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes innovative radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production—an essential component of healthy, youthful-looking skin. This safe, precisely controlled energy delivers maximum skin tightening benefits, restoring your skin's natural elasticity with just one treatment. Ideal for those who aren't ready for a surgical facelift, ThermiTight offers significant results with minimal downtime. You can expect visible improvements in just three to four weeks, and these results can last for five years or more. Plus, the procedure carries a minimal risk of complications.

The power of ThermiTight

Developed by renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Miller, the founder of Boston Center for Plastic Surgery, ThermiTight ranks among the most effective non-surgical skin tightening techniques available worldwide. This minimally invasive procedure harnesses the potential of radiofrequency energy to heat the deepest layers of tissue, naturally tightening lax skin around the neck, jowls, lower face, and even specific body areas like the arms or abdomen. As the pioneer of ThermiTight's original temperature-controlled capabilities and one of the country's most experienced practitioners, Dr. Miller can help you achieve a more youthful appearance without the need for surgical intervention.

Transform your skin with ThermiTight

ThermiTight can effectively enhance the appearance of:

  • Sagging jowls
  • Crepey neck skin
  • Loose abdominal tissue
  • Flabby upper arms
  • Bra fat
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Knees

With the advanced Arvati Platform, ThermiTight offers an unprecedented range of power. This FDA-cleared, true-temperature radiofrequency platform, Arvati, delivers precisely controlled waves of heat energy. These radiofrequency waves can be applied rapidly and accurately to yield optimal results on almost any area of lax skin. Thanks to advanced Arvati instrumentation, procedures are faster and more precise, with temperatures safely maintained within the predetermined range at all times.

Are you a candidate for ThermiTight?

ThermiTight is an excellent choice for those looking to lift and rejuvenate lax skin on the face or neck without committing to the expense or lengthy recovery associated with surgery. Ideal candidates are generally in good health and non-smokers, clearly understanding the ThermiTight procedure and its recovery process. Realistic expectations about the final results are also essential.

Our skin rejuvenation experts will assess your skin and tissues during a confidential consultation to determine if ThermiTight is the right choice for you. While ThermiTight delivers outstanding results for many, those with severe tissue laxity may require a surgical solution. In such cases, Dr. Miller can recommend the most appropriate surgical procedure.

The ThermiTight procedure: Comfort and precision

The ThermiTight procedure is performed in our comfortable, private treatment room at the Boston Center for Plastic Surgery. The duration of each procedure varies depending on individual patient needs but typically takes about an hour. Most patients find the ThermiTight procedure to be well-tolerated and virtually pain-free, thanks to the local anesthetic administered by Dr. Miller.

Small, discreet incisions are made along the treatment area. Dr. Miller then inserts a tiny probe into the targeted area, equipped with a state-of-the-art thermal imaging camera. This camera helps monitor the precise amount of radiofrequency energy delivered deep into the tissues, ensuring that the therapeutic temperature is achieved for maximum collagen rejuvenation and consistent results.

Once in position, the slim ThermiTight wand is gently moved back and forth across the treatment area in a fanning pattern. The wand delivers radiofrequency energy in precisely controlled bursts, creating the ideal amount of heat. This heat energy contracts the targeted muscle and skin, helping to eliminate pockets of subdermal fat. Simultaneously, it stimulates collagen production in the skin, revitalizing its appearance.

What is the recovery time?

ThermiTight treatments are associated with minimal discomfort, low risk of serious complications, and safety for all skin types. Because the therapeutic heat is applied to deeper tissue layers and not the outer skin, there's no risk of tissue damage or discomfort. Dr. Miller's ThermiTight procedure is minimally invasive and doesn't require general anesthesia, resulting in minimal downtime. To ensure proper healing and the best results, patients may be advised to wear a surgical garment or elastic band for the first 24 to 48 hours. Shortly after treatment, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness. However, these side effects typically resolve quickly, allowing most patients to return to their daily routines within a few days.

How long will the results last?

One ThermiTight session is often sufficient to achieve tighter, smoother skin in targeted areas of the face, neck, and body. While some patients may notice mild improvements immediately, visible results typically appear within three to four weeks.

 As collagen production increases and tissues tighten, these benefits can continue to improve for up to a year. Though individual results may vary, the natural-looking benefits of ThermiTight can endure for three to five years or longer.
