Thermage vs. ThermiTight
Thermage is a completely non-invasive method of tightening the skin and producing new collagen. ThermiTight is semi-invasive where a catheter and anesthesia are utilized to tighten the skin. I have amazing results with Thermage and would consult an expert in the field.
Thermage is non-invasive and uses radiofrequency (RF) to tighten skin. ThermiTight is invasive using a needle to puncture the skin to deliver RF. I have seen better results with Ulthera versus Thermage, and ThermiTight is not used in my practice.
Thermage is a monopolar RF device that is noninvasive and can tighten the skin.
Thanks for the
question. Thermage is a monopolar RF device that is noninvasive and can tighten
the skin. ThermiRF or ThermiTight also uses monopolar RF energy, but with a
minimally invasive needle placed into the skin to cause skin tightening. ThermiRF
is becoming more popular and needs to be performed by a skilled provider so
make a consultation with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon and
learn which one might be best for you.
ThermiTight vs. Thermage
and ThermiTight are similar in that they both use radiofrequency energy to induce
skin tightening. But that is about where
the similarities end. Thermage is
non-invasive and uses an external applicator pressed up against the skin to
deliver the energy from the outside. ThermiTight is minimally invasive, and
delivers the radio frequency energy via a probe that is inserted under the
skin. After the treatment site is
appropriately anesthetized a small puncture is made to the side of the
treatment area and then the probe is slowly passed under the skin to be
tightened. We have seen some very impressive
results with ThermiTight.
