ThermiTight Dallas Fort Worth

The results of ThermiTight are unbelievable!!
We are the first and only certified surgical practice in Mansfield using this brand new device and Dr. Michael Thornton is currently treating clients from Mansfield, Arlington, Grand Prairie, Midlothian, Burleson, Waxahachie, Dallas, and Fort Worth, Texas.
ThermiRF is the first FDA approved aesthetic device that uses 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.
ThermiRF is a multifunctional platform device that is composed of three separate advanced technologies:
- ThermiTight – is a non-surgical, minimally invasive skin tightening procedure and alternative to surgery that uses radio frequency heat that directly stimulates collagen production below the skin surface, thus improving skin texture and promoting skin tightening. RealSelf online ratings are 94% for patient satisfaction!
- ThermiRase – is a micro-invasive procedure to disable the nerves which control the muscles responsible for the forehead lines and frown lines. It applies the same radio frequency heat as ThermiTight to selected nerves around the eye and nose and it is a long-term alternative to Botox neurotoxins. With ThermiRase, Dr. Thornton first uses a nerve stimulator to map the direction of the nerve fibers, then a series of thermal lesions are created along the nerve pathway to the forehead and glabella muscles, thus causing inability for the nerve to stimulate muscle. The effect is immediate and long lasting.
- ThermiSmooth – is a procedure whereby precise heating is delivered through a pencil-sized hand-piece to directly heat the skin’s surface. The ThermiRF platform is set to a specific target temperature while the ThermiRF computer automatically adjusts the energy output to a precise targeted temperature. Unlike the ThermiTight and ThermiRase procedures, the ThermiSmooth proceudure is performed directly to the skin surface. It is a painless and gentle procedure that is typically performed by our Aesthetician and is primarily used to treat fine lines and loose skin crepiness around the lips and eyes.
More amazing information about ThermTight?
ThermiTight can tighten skin and lift 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.
During the ThermiTight procedure, the small ThermiRF SmartTip thermistor probe is inserted under your skin where controlled heat energy is precisely delivered. 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 being monitored in real time. The ThermiTight procedure only 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.
The ThermiTight procedure is an alternative to typical facelift surgery for those patients who are either too young to undergo facelift surgery or who have mild to moderate facial skin laxity. The perfect age is between 35 – 55 years and works on both males and females. Most patients benefit from the ThermiTight procedure alone but other clients may require complete facial rejuvenation, whereby multiple facial plastic surgery procedures are performed simultaneously including concurrent blepharoplasty, facial fat transfer, and / or laser skin resurfacing.
What can I expect during my ThermiTight consultation?
During your ThermiTight consultation, you will meet privately and exclusively with Dr. Michael 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.
