As we age, we start to notice loose skin around the face and neck. Due to aging, the elastin and collagen structure of the skin loses elasticity, and the skin loses some of its self-moisturizing components making it appear loose and saggy. In addition, skin can lose its elasticity due to factors such as sun exposure, excessive smoking, regular intake of alcoholic beverages, obesity, weight loss, poor diet, and others. Triple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Sabryoffers several nonsurgical treatment options at his NYCoffice, including the ThermiRF system with ThermiTight and ThermiVa.
ThermiTight is an FDA-cleared aesthetic procedure, which delivers controlled thermal energy under the skin to reverse the effects of aging. ThermiTight, a non-surgical and micro-invasive treatment, is ideal for patients who want fast, long lasting, and natural results with little or no downtime.

The non-surgical and micro-invasive treatment is ideal for patients who want fast and long-lasting results with little or no downtime. The injectable RF treats skin laxity and helps sculpt the area of concern. The heat emitted from the radio frequency energy only targets the deep tissues within the dermis, leaving the surrounding skin and tissues unharmed. ThermiTight stimulates the production of new collagen which aids in tightening of the skin over time.
ThermiTight is performed using local anesthesia. Patients may experience slight swelling, bruising, or redness and can resume normal activities within 24 hours. Results are immediate and improve over time. A single treatment can produce a three-dimensional improvement in the appearance of skin looseness, the effects have been shown to last several years.
