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. Just outside of Philadelphia, Bryn Mawr’s facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Bloom, offers ThermiTight, 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, ThermiTight is a single treatment solution offering near-surgical results in some cases with far less downtime.
No surgical scarring
For all skin types and tones
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 ThermiTight to improve the quality and appearance of the skin’s surface, in turn enhancing surgical results.
ThermiTight is minimally invasive procedure to rejuvenate and tighten the skin and underlying tissues of the lower face, jowls and neck. Prior to the advent of this treatment, results like these were only able to be achieve with facelift surgery. This procedure reduces wrinkles and sagging in the neck, lower face and jowls, leaving you looking years younger.
The ThermiTight procedure in performed in the office in under 2 hours, under local anesthesia. It utilizes radiofrequency heat energy to tighten down the tissues with minimal recovery time required. Because there are no scalpel incisions, there is significantly less discomfort than with more invasive surgical procedures. Patients can expect minimal bruising and swelling for about 3 to 5 days after the procedure.
Dr. Bloom has extensive experience with the ThermiTight device and with this technology. He has lectured around the world on the topic, trained many other physicians on the technique at his office and has written a multitude of publications in the medical literature on the ThermiTight technology. He was closely worked with Thermi for years as one of their key opinion leaders and is responsible for developing some of the protocols and best practices for the device.
