In order to avoid surgery, many people search for an effective and minimally invasive procedure to address skin laxity and the visible signs of aging. By using Radiofrequency energy (RF), skin is heated to stimulate and re-build your body’s own collagen naturally. Radiofrequency technology has been used safely and successfully in medicine for more than 75+ years. RF energy is used primarily to coagulate, ablate, and cut in a precisely controlled manner.
With recent innovations RF has been used in aesthetic medicine as an advanced minimally invasive technology to tighten skin, improve body contouring, and reduce wrinkles. Dr. Manuel Peña offers THERMItight® skin tightening in his Peña Plastic Surgery practice, located in Naples, FL. THERMItight® is also referred to as Injectable Radiofrequency (RF) and is for select patients looking for a non-surgical skin tightening option. THERMItight® utilizes temperature-controlled radio frequency to stimulate the body’s production of collagen and elastin for ideally smooth results.

Both THERMIsmooth® face and THERMItight® can be used to produce a more youthful appearance without surgical intervention.

During your consultation with Dr. Peña, he will recommend the appropriate procedure or combination of treatments to best meet your goals.

How is the THERMItight® Procedure Performed?
For the THERMItight® procedure, Dr. Peña will make a very small incision in the treatment area through which a tiny SmartTip™ Thermistor probe can be inserted. This probe is controlled by Dr. Peña’s skilled hands with the assistance of Thermal Image Guidance™, allowing controlled heat to be applied to deeper layers of tissue for optimal stimulation of collagen and elastin.
A single treatment is typically enough to produce desirable outcomes, but full results may not be visible for six to nine months.* More immediate results can be obtained through surgical methods, though these are neither right nor attractive to all patients.
