What Are The Jowls?
The jowls are defined as the fleshy portion of the face near the mouth, which includes the cheeks and jaws. The jowls have a tendency to sag as a person gets older. Sagging jowls can also make a person appear much older. Fortunately, ThermiTight can correct sagging jowls.

What Is ThermiTight?
ThermiTight is a procedure that involves using radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin. The first thing the doctor will do is make a very small incision in the skin. After that, a small fiber will be inserted into the skin. The fiber will deliver safe, effective and controlled radiofrequency energy. This procedure helps tighten the skin by stimulating collagen production. One of the reasons many people experience sagging jowls is because collagen production decreases as the result of the natural aging process.
ThermiTight may also be referred to as ThermiRF. This procedure was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2012. In most cases, this procedure can be completed in one hour or less.
Is ThermiTight Painful?
ThermiTight is not a painful procedure. In fact, a small amount of anesthetic is applied prior to this procedure in order to minimize the pain. However, patients may experience a small amount of discomfort after they get this procedure.
Am I a Candidate For ThermiTight?
ThermiTight is a procedure that is ideal for people are looking for a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. Most people are considered good candidates because this procedure is minimally-invasive. However, only a physician can determine whether you are a good candidate for ThermiTight. A consultation with Dr. Sherry and her staff can help determine if skin tightening is the most effective treatment option for you.
What to Expect after Treatment
You may have some redness and swelling in your jowls after you get this treatment. However, this typically goes away shortly after this procedure. Most people are able to return to their normal activities within 24 to 48 hours. Make sure you use mild soaps and lotions on the treatment area for a few weeks after your treatment. You should also limit your sun exposure.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Many people get amazing results after just one treatment. However, some people are required to get multiple treatments. The treatments are typically spaced three to six weeks apart from one another.
When Will I See The Results?
Many people notice an immediate improvement after they get their treatment. However, the results will continue to improve over the next few months. The effects of ThermiTight can potentially last for several years.
