What Are My Treatment Options?
New York Skin & Vein Center offers multiple treatment options that take 30-60 minutes to complete. These treatments tighten skin throughout the face and body and are safe for all skin tones.
ThermiSmooth® uses advanced radiofrequency technology to smooth different areas of skin. This non-invasive temperature-controlled treatment heats the dermis to promote the stimulation of collagen and long-term production of new collagen. It is typically used to treat fine lines, skin laxity, and smoothes the skin of the eyelids, and lips.
Treatments, on average, take 30 minutes but can vary depending on how many areas you have treated. Four sessions are recommended per area and should be spaced a few weeks apart.
Results can last a year or more and usually need maintenance to keep the benefit going. Mild swelling and redness usually subside within 24 hours. Normal activities can be resumed immediately following treatment.
ThermiTight® is a minimally-invasive procedure designed to tighten loose or sagging skin around your body. The thermal radiofrequency energy is delivered below the surface of the skin to trigger collagen and elastin production. This treatment is completed in one session and lasts for several years. It is ideal for use on the neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, thighs, and knees.
Depending on how much skin needs to be tightened, your procedure can average one hour following administration of local anesthesia. You should expect to see full results in 6-8 weeks, even though you may experience shrinkage of the tissues immediately during the procedure. You are able to return to work in as little as one or two days, though swelling and redness may occur for up to two weeks.
