There will come a time when facelifts and neck lifts as we know them today will no longer be performed, being considered too archaic and perhaps even barbaric. Technologies of the future will bridge the gap between non-invasive and invasive treatments, delivering the miracle of surgical results with the ease of in office procedures.

One of those future technologies is actually here already and is slated to change the field of aesthetics forever. With a 94% satisfaction rate on RealSelf.com, the THERMiTight procedure is touted as the best micro-invasive neck and jaw tightening treatment available.

With an elegant tiny cannula about the size of a filler injection needle, THERMiTight injects radio frequency / RF energy under the skin during an in office procedure that is less than an hour long, resulting in lifting and tightening of the jaw and neck. The treatment is done under local anesthesia while you are awake but fully numbed in the area of treatment.


The setup is quite high-tech using heat seeking infrared technology that was originally developed for the military. This heat seeking camera reads the temperature change on the surface of the skin and inside the skin as a tiny cannula is delivering RF energy, heating the tissue and shrinking it. The camera guides the surgeon throughout the entire treatment, safe guarding against under-treatment, which would lead to insufficient results, and over treatment, which would lead to excessive downtime, instead ensuring just the right treatment with ideal results.

Unlike currently available non-invasive skin tightening treatments, THERMiTight requires one treatment just like a facelift or a neck lift. Downtime consists of mild swelling in the treatment area, mainly due to the liquid anesthetic injected to numb the area. Swelling resolves in about a week and the results continue to improve the first 12 months. The first group of patients have been followed for 3 to 6 years and have not needed repeat treatments.

This treatment is ideal for those with loss of skin elasticity in their lower face and neck leading to jowl formation and the beginnings of the dreaded turkey neck. Also it is ideal for those who have tried other lifting and tightening treatments such as Ultherapy, Thermage and Pellevé and want a longer lasting solution. I predict that THERMiTight will dominate the field of lower face and neck tightening and lifting treatments in the near future.
