ThermiTight Recovery Process
Thermi-tight for those reading this and don’t know is a minimally invasive (performed through a needle-stick in the skin) procedure, done in the office under local anesthesia with minimal downtime. Often referred to as infusion radiofrequency, a term used to distinguish it from surgical skin tightening procedures. Skin tightening surgery is often done for more severe cases of laxity. Thermi-tight is unique in that it can be done in circumstances where less laxity exists and we previously had very little, effect treatments to offer. During recovery one can usually resume normal activities quickly in a day or so. Extreme sports/ work out should be discussed with your Physician prior so you can appropriately plan for adequate time. As a general rule I often suggest Spanks or UnderArmour garments which are tight fitting over the area when exercising for the first few weeks following any body contouring/tightening procedure and starting off gradually to avoid problems or pain.
