Radiofrequency energy produces a profound anti-aging effect by sending heat to the deeper layers of the skin in order to promote collagen production and tissue tightening. Main Line facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Bloom offers ThermiTight and FaceTite, non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments that use a tiny probe to deliver radiofrequency energy to specific spots beneath the surface of the skin. Results include improvement and tightening of the skin and soft tissue laxity in the jowls, lower face and neck. The best candidates for the procedure are patients who still have some elasticity in the neck and lower facial tissues, allowing them to tighten more effectively. Unlike other radiofrequency procedures, FaceTite and ThermiTight are single treatment solutions offering near-surgical results in some cases with far less downtime.
This treatment is considered “micro-invasive,” which means there are no scalpels, no sutures and no surgery. A tiny needle allows Dr. Bloom to access the tissues underneath the surface of the skin and focus the heat energy specifically at that level. Most patients have less than a week downtime and are able to go back to work even sooner than that. Final results are realized after about 4-6 months when the tissues have tightened significantly. Dr. Bloom recommends minimally-invasive facial treatments like FaceTite to improve the quality and appearance of the skin’s surface, in turn enhancing surgical results.
