Serving clients near Mansfield, Arlington, Fort Worth & Dallas, Texas

Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center provides ThermiTight Face technology, a revolutionary FDA-approved aesthetic skin tightening system for the face and body.  We are the first and only certified surgical practice in Mansfield using ThermiTight.

ThermiTight is the first FDA approved aesthetic device using radio frequency (RF) thermal heating and precise temperature control to treat a variety of cosmetic soft tissue areas of the face, neck, jowls, arms, legs, and body.  ThermiTight is only one part of the complete ThermiRF platform that uses the newest and latest ThermiRF technology.  Our office also uses the same Thermi technology for vaginal rejuvenation, called ThermiVa.

ThermiTight non-surgical aesthetic technology is able to tighten skin of your face without the need for major surgery.  It is specifically designed to target the male or female patient 35 – 55 years of age who are too young for a full face lift but show subtle signs of facial aging, jowling, and loose neck skin — otherwise known as a ThermiLift procedure.  It can also be used on other areas of skin laxity and skin crepiness on the abdomen, arms, and legs.

How does ThermiTight work?

During the ThermiTight procedure, a small ThermiRF thermistor probe is inserted under your skin where controlled heat energy is precisely delivered.  The insertion points are usually made just behind the earlobes and under the chin.  The probe is carefully guided to treat areas of skin laxity and wrinkling while the temperature readings are being directly monitored using precise Thermal Image Guidance using a special heat-sensitive FLIR camera.  The selected tissue, skin, and muscle fascia of the face and neck is carefully heated to a specific end point while both the internal temperature and external temperatures are visualized in real time.  The ThermiTight procedure requires local anesthesia and takes approximately one hour to complete.  After the procedure, a gentle neck wrap is applied to minimize swelling.  Normal activities are resumed the next day.

ThermiTight — Alternative to Face Lift surgery

ThermiTight is considered an alternative to a typical face lift surgery for those patients who are either too young to undergo facelift surgery or who have mild facial skin laxity.  The perfect age is between 35 – 55 years and works on both males and females.  Most clients benefit from the ThermiTight procedure alone but others may require complete facial rejuvenation, whereby multiple facial plastic surgery procedures are performed simultaneously including concurrent liposuction, blepharoplasty, facial fat transfer, and / or Co2 laser skin resurfacing.

What can I expect during my ThermiTight consultation?

During your ThermiTight consultation, you will meet privately and exclusively with Dr. Michael L Thornton where you will collectively share in the decision making process about your personal needs, desires, and expectations.  Although well qualified, we choose not use patient coordinators, nurse practitioners, or physicians assistants to perform your ThermiTight consultation.  Dr. Thornton will complete a thorough medical history and perform a careful examination of your face, jowls, and neck to see if you are an acceptable candidate to undergo minimally invasive face and neck tightening using the ThermiLift procedure.

Where will my ThermiTight procedure take place?

ThermiTight procedures are performed at Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center in our private procedure room.   The procedure uses local anesthesia and takes a short period of time to perform.
