Dr. Rokhsar is pleased to add yet another exciting tool to his arsenal of non-surgical anti-aging technologies for patients in New York and Long Island. ThermiTight™ utilizes a breakthrough advance in computerized RF technology1 to significantly reduce excess, sagging skin as well as fat below the skin’s surface. With this procedure, age lines and wrinkles can be improved in many areas of the body, often in a single treatment lasting about one hour in duration. Dr. Rokhsar was one of the first physicians to offer Thermitight2 in the New York area and he has considerable experience working with the device to improve the appearance of his patients.

New York patients seeking a substantial reduction of age lines that are generally yielded by other non-surgical techniques can be candidates for ThermiTight. The first procedure of its kind, ThermiTight delivers controlled thermal energy just under the skin to repair age lines without surgery. Because of the gentle nature of this procedure, it is typically suited for treating many areas of the body including the face, neck, upper arms, abdomen, and thighs.
ThermiTight, or thermistor-controlled subdermal skin tightening, utilizes the ThermiRF system and a tiny thermistor probe called a SmartTip. After the target area has been numbed, the probe is inserted beneath the skin to heat subdermal tissues to temperatures specified by Dr. Rokhsar. During the procedure, patient’s temperatures are monitored internally by the system’s computer and externally via Thermal Image Guidance, a real-time visual display of skin temperature fed by a thermal camera.
The precise heating of the subdermal layer causes quick dissolving of fat deposits and tightening of the collagen that controls skin elasticity. ThermiTight is a non-surgical skin tightening for surface skin, providing a quick reduction in age lines and smoother, more youthful skin. Initial results will be visible after treatment. Patients observe further improvement in skin looseness over the first few months following ThermiTight.
New York ThermiTight patients will be pleased to know that the procedure can be performed with only local anesthesia of the target area(s) in under an hour. Although patients may experience mild redness and swelling, most are able to return to normal activity after a day and require only over-the-counter pain medication if any.
While every patient is unique and individual results may vary, most patients experience dramatic improvements in skin laxity and the appearance of age lines after the first treatment. As compared to other non-surgical treatments for signs of aging, New York ThermiTight patients continue to experience improvement in appearance for months after their procedure.
ThermiTight results can last for several years. By contrast, Botox® and filler injections generally must be repeated every few months to maintain results.
