Body Contouring ThermiTight ® is utilized for the following procedures:
Subcutaneously radiofrequency energy is used at higher temperatures precisely controlled by the physician to melt adipose (fat) tissue for body contouring and volume reduction anywhere on the body.
The tiny radiofrequency probe delivers the prescribed dose of safe RF energy through the non-insulated tip of the probe to heat the targeted fat cells and melt them. The treated fat cells are then flushed naturally through the body’s lymphatic system and excreted as urine over the course of several months.
ThermiRF also stimulates increased production of collagen in the skin, creating tighter skin that enhances the results of spot fat reduction within the same treatment area.
Radiofrequency energy is used to heat the target tissues. Heat penetrates the skin transcutaneously to stimulate increased collagen production and reduce wrinkle lines and tighten treated tissue.
The ThermiRF non-invasive body contouring treatment is best suited to patients with mild to moderate wrinkles, great for the forehead, under the eyes and around the mouth.
Patients see improvement in their skin tightness, with minimal risks and downtime compared to surgery.
Why is there a need for a new radio frequency non-invasive aesthetic skin tightening approach?
Current non-invasive radio frequency clinical outcomes have been modest and unreliable. Procedures can be time-consuming and painful, require anesthesia, and be technique-sensitive. There have been burns, scars and other side effects with radio frequency technology that lacks temperature control. Measurement of skin temperature with external thermometers is unreliable due to high variances in temperature readout and technique sensitivity.
How is ThermiRF Platform with ThermiRF different?
The ThermiRF Platform controls the temperature of the hand-piece tip that is in contact with the patient. The clinician can set the desired temperature and know that it is being delivered to the patient. Once the hand-piece tip reaches the target temperature, a digital clock measures time. With precise temperature and time, the clinician can target and control the therapeutic dose. The system increases safety and delivers more reliable clinical outcomes.

Dr. Calle is at the forefront of the newest innovation in skin tightening and Body Contouring. The ThermiTight procedure is minimally invasive, occurring just below the skin surface, where the maximum effects will be achieved. The results have been outstanding, with significant improvement seen in as little as few weeks, but continuing to improve over a period of six to twelve months. Dr.Calle is a member of the Clinical Advisory Council of ThermiAesthetics, the maker of ThermiTight, and as such, he trains physicians from across the country in this exciting new procedure.
According to Medical Insight 79% of patients surveyed stated they have excessive sub-mental fat that they would like to have treated. In fact, the demand for accurate body contouring, lifting and skin tightening are growing at the fastest and most consistent rate of any aesthetic procedure. ThermiRF technology achieves both improved contouring and tightening in the same treatment for a more reliable, less painful and safer procedure to treat small areas of fat tissue and lifting for patients that do not want to undergo more invasive procedures. As a standalone technology, patients will see results in approximately 6-12 weeks as their body naturally flushes out targeted fat tissue and tissues tighten. If combined with liposuction, patients will see immediate results with improved skin tightening.
ThermiTight is a new approach for stimulating the development of collagen. It is a non-surgical procedure that introduces radiofrequency (RF) energy beneath the skin to stimulate the production of collagen to tighten and smooth the skin on the face, neck, and body.
This procedure is minimally invasive, requires only local anesthesia and poses little to no downtime. In addition to the lower face and neck, ThermiTight is used on areas of the body that can benefit from tightening or lifting. These areas include the breasts (may be combined with breast lipo-reduction), abdomen (to reduce wrinkly skin), and upper arms. ThermiTight can be combined with liposuction in the presence of excess fat.
After the skin is numbed with local anesthesia, a tiny incision is made in the skin and the ThermiTight electrode is introduced below the surface. The electrode is the size of a needle so no stitches are needed. The electrode provides RF energy while simultaneously measuring the real-time temperature at its tip. Only enough RF energy is delivered to heat the tissue to a safe temperature. For added safety, an external video camera is used to measure the actual surface temperature of the skin.
Body contouring results with ThermiTight develop gradually and are long-lasting. The treatment itself typically takes less than one hour, and poses minimal post-treatment redness and swelling—many patients resume their normal activities right away!
For some, ThermiTight may put off surgical procedures such as a face-lift or a neck-lift. In certain cases, two ThermiTight treatments may be needed to achieve a patient’s desired improvement.
What are the benefits of ThermiTight?
This body contouring procedure produces tighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin for all skin types. ThermiTight is safe for both light and dark complexions.
The procedure is relatively inexpensive and causes no known side effects.

Who is a candidate for ThermiTight treatment?
Anyone whose face, neck, upper arms, and/or abdomen has begun to show natural signs of aging can benefit from ThermiTight treatment. Its gentle radiofrequency energy is guided directly by Dr Calle, with continual monitoring of the energy level so patient comfort is easily maintained.
There is no recovery time required following ThermiTight treatments. You should use only mild soaps and lotions for a few days, and apply sunscreen to the face for several months after treatment.
ThermiRF treatments use targeted radiofrequency energy to address wrinkle reduction, body contouring and skin tightening using ThermiGen, the only “temperature controlled” radiofrequency system on the market with both non-invasive and micro invasive applications. ThermiRF treatments are safe, simple, effective and are ideal for patients who want proven results without surgery.
Finally, a treatment platform as versatile and detail oriented as you are! ThermiRF causes effective volume reduction of trouble zones previously difficult to impact; submental, axillary fold, arms , abdomen and knees, skin tightening and wrinkle reduction with our state of the art temperature controlled RadioFrequency technology and use of ThermiRase for treatment of frown lines without the use of Neurotoxins.
Why is there a need for a new product focused on MICRO invasive volume reduction and skin tightening? Liposuction can reduce fat, but there is significant downtime, cost and potential side effects to the patient, and other tissue tightening and lifting technologies are ineffective. In addition ThermiRF is ideal for small areas. Patients and Physicians alike have been searching for a safe and effective treatment that can reduce fat and tighten skin post procedure; especially for the small areas of the body that cause concern under the chin, love handles and arms.
New Temperature Controlled Technology is available only with the ThermiRF System
ThermiRF’s technology allows physicians to precisely locate an area for treatment, and then apply a specific dose of controlled radiofrequency energy to a portion of the targeted area. The ThermiRF Platform addresses wrinkle reduction, body contouring, lifting, relaxation of frown lines and skin tightening with both non-invasive and minimally invasive applications.
ThermiRf is the first and only aesthetic therapy with temperature control.

The Latest Anti-Cellulite Treatment
The thighs, butt, stomach and upper arms are the areas that attract cellulite and women are on a constant quest to find a permanent solution to eliminate it. Count poor circulation, connective tissue and fibrous bands that push against fat among the causes for this bulging look. But there has been progress in terms of treating cellulite now that doctors have a better understanding of what it is, how it’s caused and ways to limit it.
Until there’s a permanent cure available, cellulite is, and probably always will be, one of the biggest beauty problems women face, so it’s really no surprise that new supercharged treatments keep making their way into doctors’ offices.
The novel and extremely successful ThermiTight procedure has been found to be effective in treating cellulite! This minimally invasive procedure attacks cellulite where it occurs – directly under the surface of the skin. With little to no downtime, except for the wearing of a compression garment, the patient is often able to see results in a few weeks, although improvement continues for up to one year following the procedure.
Cellulite is a condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumpy appearance. It is most noticeable on the buttocks and thighs, and usually occurs after puberty.
Cellulite is often classified using three grades:
Although cellulite can affect both sexes, it is much more common in females, mainly because they are more likely to have particular types of fat and connective tissue.
What causes cellulite?
The causes of cellulite are not well understood, but there are several theories that have been put forth as explanations. Among these are:
How can cellulite be prevented?
Eating healthy, low fat foods such as fruits, vegetables, and fiber can help one to avoid cellulite. Similarly exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy weight, and reducing stress are recommended to prevent cellulite. In addition, wearing thongs, boy shorts, or looser fitting undergarments can prevent cellulite that might form due to tight elastic.
What to Expect
During your consultation, Dr. Phanor Calle at Weston Medical Clinic & Cosmetic Center will review your medical history and treatment goals. Treatment options, including risks and benefits, will be discussed in detail. Photos may also be necessary. We also ask that you bring a list of medications, vitamins and herbal supplements that you take, along with information on dosages.
Patients today are demanding faster, less invasive procedures with little, if any, downtime that can reduce those pockets of unwanted fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise and tighten loose sagging skin. Now, ThermiAesthetics is pleased to offer the newest advancement in tissue tightening and non-surgical fat reduction for body contouring.
How many treatments are needed?
Depending on the skin’s laxity, the area to be treated and the results desired, multiple treatments may be required. Keep in mind that the results from ThermiRF are gradual and may take from three to six months to maximize the effects of the treatment.
Unlike lasers, with ThermiRF, where the laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the skin’s surface, the RF energy stimulates the production of collagen (which supports the skin) from within. ThermiRF can be used to tighten the skin of the face, neck, back, chest and arms. ThermiRF is the first aesthetic therapy with temperature control. This means the clinician can set the desired temperature and deliver the therapy reducing risk of burns to the patient.
Can I have other treatments with Body Contouring?
Yes, ThermiRF can be used to tighten the skin of the face, neck, back, chest and arms. ThermiRF is the first aesthetic therapy with temperature control. Many patients choose skin tightened to enhance the results of their spot fat reduction and improve their facial and body contours.
Why is there a need for a new product focused on MICRO invasive volume reduction and skin tightening?
Liposuction can reduce fat, but there is significant downtime, cost and potential side effects to the patient, and other tissue tightening and lifting technologies are ineffective. In addition ThermiRF is ideal for small areas.
