Nonsurgical Skin Tightening in Houston, TX

46 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

As we age, we start to notice loose skin around the face and neck. Due to aging, the elastin and collagen structure of the skin loses elasticity, and the skin loses some of its self-moisturizing components, making it appear loose and saggy. In addition, skin can lose its elasticity due to factors, such as sun exposure, excessive smoking, regular intake of alcoholic beverages, obesity, weight loss, poor diet, and others. Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Henry Mentz offers several nonsurgical treatment options at his Houston, TX office, including the ThermiRF system with ThermiTight and ThermiVa and the InMode Evoke system.

ThermiTight is an FDA-cleared aesthetic procedure that delivers controlled thermal energy under the skin to reverse the effects of aging. ThermiTight, a nonsurgical and micro-invasive treatment, is ideal for patients who want fast, long-lasting, and natural results with little or no downtime.

Evoke is a noninvasive facial remodeling device that uses bipolar radiofrequency as a way to target the submental tissues and create more contoured facial features. 

Procedure Technique

  • ThermiTight delivers controlled thermal energy under the skin to reverse the effects of aging. This nonsurgical and micro-invasive treatment is ideal for patients who want fast and long-lasting results with little or no downtime. The injectable RF treats skin laxity and helps sculpt the area of concern. The heat emitted from the radiofrequency energy only targets the deep tissues within the dermis, leaving the surrounding skin and tissues unharmed. ThermiTight stimulates the production of new collagen, which aids in tightening of the skin over time.
  • ThermiVa uses a special wand applicator that may be applied externally to labia and vulvar tissues to restore normal tissue tone and function. The specially designed handpiece may also deliver radiofrequency energy inside the vagina to revive atrophic tissue and other internal structures.
  • Evoke can be used on the face or chin to tighten skin and address submental areas. With radiofrequency energy, it can remodel face tissue for an overall younger-looking facial structure. The hands-free applicator is designed to target specific areas of the face. 

Recovery

  • ThermiTight is performed using local anesthesia. Patients may experience slight swelling, bruising, or redness and can resume normal activities within 24 hours. Results are immediate and improve over time. A single treatment can produce a three-dimensional improvement in the appearance of skin looseness, and the effects have been shown to last several years.
  • There is no downtime with the ThermiVa procedure. It is an in-office procedure that can take up to 30 minutes. You will be able to resume all daily activities following the procedure. Three treatments are recommended for optimal results, and most patients will see noticeable improvement after the first or second session.
  • With Evoke, there is no downtime associated after the treatment. For many patients, a series of treatments spaced out accordingly may be needed to ensure optimal results. During your thorough consultation, our aesthetic team will determine the best treatment plan to make sure you receive your desired outcome.

RF Tightening FAQs

ThermiRF?

ThermiRF is a temperature-controlled, radiofrequency device used to tighten, smooth, and sculpt the skin. Radiofrequency is a type of electrical energy that can be controlled and thereby stimulates collagen production in the targeted area(s). This device addresses body contouring, skin tightening, and wrinkle reduction with both noninvasive and minimally invasive applications. Patient benefits include:

  • Micro-invasive
  • Local anesthesia
  • Fast recovery
  • Long-lasting results

ThermiVa?

  • Vaginal laxity: the treatment will tighten the vagina at the opening and the full length of the vagina.
  • Vulvar or labial laxity: it will tighten the labial tissues and minimize any sagging (“camel toe”). This will result in more comfort in body-hugging clothing.
  • Vaginal dryness: the treatment will create thicker and softer skin and add more moisture both internally and externally to improve daily life and sexual intercourse.
  • Stress incontinence: ThermiVa will help reduce any leakage, accidents, or urge symptoms.
  • Sexual or orgasmic dysfunction: it can help result in heightened sensitivity, more coordinated and stronger muscular contractions, and the ability to achieve orgasms in a shorter amount of time.

Evoke?

Evoke is an effective, nonsurgical skin tightening solution for the face and chin. The innovative radiofrequency technology ensures:

  • Safe and effective treatment
  • Remodeling of subdermal and submental tissues
  • A number of advanced treatments with one device
  • Restorative results for a tighter, younger-looking appearance
