ThermiTight/Skin Tightening/High Definition procedures
Thank you for your question. I recommend a combination of procedures for optimal results.
ThermiTight utilizes a small electrode inserted under the skin to heat tissue to a selected therapeutic temperature. Literature has shown that elevating skin to a therapeutic temperature level can contract collagen molecules and stimulate collagen production, which may give the appearance of lifting or tightening. Fat reduction is rare, unless set to high temperatures and kept at high temperatures for a significant amount of time .
To best answer your question, it depends on how much skin laxity you have. ThermiTight can work well in the thigh area to tighten skin that is mild to moderately laxity. Surgery may be a better option, if you have excessive laxity. Results with ThermiTight vary from patient to patient. You should experience some overall improvement.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

ThermiTight for the Knees?
Now, using a series of tiny insertion points, we can place heat beneath the skin to tighten the skin (ThermiTight) followed by a series of external ThermiBody treatments to create even further tightening.
I hope that helps!

Thermitight on the front of the legs
ThermiTight may be a very good option for you here. This is an area where we don't have a lot of options, and ThermiTight could be done under local as an office procedure improving the quality and smoothness of the skin. I don't think you will find something that can completely reduce the cellulite, but this is a reasonable plan for what I see in your photos.
