ThermiTight® provides a non-surgical facelift or neck lift option that provides tighter, smoother, more youthful looking skin for all skin types and tones. Daniel Man, M.D., a Florida board-certified plastic surgeon, uses ThermiTight® to reshape areas of the body on men and women in Boca Raton, FL, and the surrounding communities to provide contour and definition.
What is ThermiTight®?
ThermiTight® is a safe, skin tightening procedure that uses thermal energy to heat the sub-dermal tissues, break down fat, and improve collagen production. As a cosmetic rejuvenation option that lies between over-the-counter products and invasive procedures, it has rapidly become popular for its speedy, long-lasting results.
The procedure is simple and targets the areas just below the surface of the skin. Radiofrequency energy (RF) gently stimulates new collagen growth and helps break down fat cells. It can be used on loose or sagging skin or fatty areas all over the body, including the face, neck, underarms, back, tummy or thighs. RF treatments can also reduce the appearance of cellulite on various parts of the body.

Is ThermiTight® Right for Me?
ThermiTight® is right for anyone who is considering a body contouring procedure but is not ready for invasive plastic surgery procedures. It is effective in tightening the underlying tissues in several areas of the body, including the face, neck, abdomen, breasts and buttocks.
How does ThermiTight® work?
Unlike injectable fillers or plastic surgery, ThermiTight® simply promotes natural collagen contraction and renewal, safely and gently filling in wrinkles and lines. The radiofrequency energy is directed below the skin using a handheld device that looks like a pen with a fine probe, or SmartTip, attached to the end.
When the tiny SmartTip is gently inserted into the skin, it emits radiofrequency (RF) energy that warms the surrounding sub-dermal tissue to a specific temperature that is therapeutic but not hot enough to cause pain. The probe regulates the temperature to keep it at the proper level, and an infrared camera provides an added layer of safety by supplying a secondary, more visual temperature reading.
The focused heat emissions from the SmartTip disrupt the fat cells, which then liquefy and are absorbed and discarded by the body. Dr. Man will carefully apply the probe to the target areas until the optimal temperature is reached and the therapy is complete.
A local anesthesia may be administered before ThermiTight® treatment, and the treated area is wrapped afterwards. Most treatments take one to three hours. The area being treated may feel warm and tingling during and directly after treatment.
Most patients notice a slight immediate difference after just one treatment, followed by a more significant difference in appearance emerging over the next six months. ThermaTight® can be applied to several areas of the body if desired, but usually, only one area is treated per visit.
Is ThermiTight® safe?
ThermiTight® is based on radio-frequency (RF) technology, which has been used in medical settings for over 75 years. This safe and successful method of generating a precise measurement of heat can induce therapeutic metabolic processes and is now routinely used for aesthetic procedures.
The RF energy can be targeted to heat the layer of fat directly below the skin, shrinking and contracting the fat cells and causing the skin layer to tighten. It simultaneously promotes natural, healthy collagen growth, filling in lines and wrinkles naturally and reducing sagging. This method is FDA approved, and Dr. Man is a trained professional in the application of ThermiTight® treatments.
How is the ThermiTight® Recovery?
With ThermiTight®, there is no downtime and patients can return to normal activity the next day, although sunscreen should be used when outside. Side effects of ThermiTight® are very mild, including only slight swelling or tenderness that diminishes very quickly. One ThermiTight® treatment yields results that can last for several years. In a recent study, 93 percent of patients surveyed said they would recommend the ThermiTight® procedure to look and feel younger. ThermiTight® is perfect for anyone who has troublesome fat pockets that refuse to respond to diet or exercise, or loose, sagging skin that requires tightening.
How Much Does ThermiTight® Cost?
The cost of ThermiTight® varies with each patient as it depends on the area to be treated and whether other procedures are performed. Although ThermiTight® is effective on several areas of the body that tend to store excess fat, only one area should be treated at a time. Dr. Man reviews costs as well as payment options and financing for ThermiTight® during your consultation.
