Muscle Weakness After ThermiTight
It is possible to experience temporary weakness of a facial muscle or group of muscles following a ThermiTight procedure. Usually, the weakness is short lived but it can take several weeks or months to recover complete function. Weakness can be caused by mechanical "bruising" of the nerve during the procedure or from a modest heat-related injury. In both cases, recovery is typically the rule. You should make your doctor aware of your situation if you haven't already done so.
