What is the difference between ThermiTight and Thermi 250?

ThermiTight vs Thermi 250
Both devices use RF to heat up the skin and stimulate the production of collagen that leads to thicker and tighter skin in 3-6 months. ThermiTight uses a small probe that is inserted under the skin and a usually only requires 1 treatment. Thermi 250 uses an external probe that is massaged over the treatment area to heat up the skin. Because it is on top of the skin it requires gentle heating and therefore 3-6 treatments to be effective. What treatment would be best for you depends on the amount of laxity and your ability for downtime. Good luck!
Thermi Tight and Thermi 250
ThermiTIght and Thermi 250 both use radio frequency to tighten skin. Thermi Tight is a minimally invasive procedure that requires local anesthesia. A probe is placed under the skin and heat helps tighten the skin. It requires only one treatment and the changes happen over time.Thermi 250 is not invasive. The probe is external. Anywhere from 4-6 treatments are required to cause tightening. It too requires time for the skin to tighten.

ThermiTight vs ThermiSmooth?
ThermiTight uses RF energy beneath the skin (via a very thin thermistor) and can effectively tighten, tone, and contour using access points that are so tiny that they close on their own. The treatment is usually done once and requires injection of numbing solution prior to treatment.
ThermiSmooth, on the other hand, uses RF energy externally to perform the same treatment. The process usually involves anywhere from 3-6 treatments each spaced a few weeks apart and there is ZERO downtime.
Which treatment is best for you is tough to say and really requires consultation with a physician who has experience using both treatments. I would encourage you to check out the ThermiRF website to find a trained/experienced provider in your area.
I hope that helps!

Thank you for your question. In my practice we prefer the ThermiTight procedure. It is minimally invasive but gives you betters results with one treatment. The ThermiRF device used in the ThermiTight procedure delivers controlled thermal energy into your treated areas. The radio frequency energy gets sent into your tissues which stimulate collagen to tighten the skin. The main purpose of the procedure is to tighten your skin. The energy used encourages natural collagen and elastin development. If you are interested please schedule an in-person consultation with a qualified physician.
