What Is ThermiTight?
ThermiTight is a cutting-edge treatment at Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta that addresses signs of aging on the body without surgery. As a minimally invasive procedure, ThermiTight delivers controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy deep into the subdermal tissue layers to remodel collagen and produce smoother, tighter skin. The treatment is ideal for all skin types and can be used to target wrinkles and sagging on the face, neck, breasts, abdomen, thighs, and arms. As an added benefit, ThermiTight involves very little downtime when compared to surgical procedures, like liposuction. During an appointment near Norcross, GA, Dr. Gerry Sotomayor can assess your skin and create a customized treatment plan for your goals.

"I don’t have a reason to complain for the liposuction procedure at this clinic. The staff were friendly they didn’t share my procedure to anyone I was with. I simply brought myself with my lying roommate and he picked me up for the medical clinic after a couple hours. Healed just fine."- V. / Google / Dec 19, 2021
"(Translated by Google) Excellent doctor, I have known him since 97, he took care of my daughters' pregnancies, I love that he talks about God, great human being, it almost takes me 1 hour to get there, but it doesn't matter because doctor, like him, there is no where I live in covington, ga, what else can I say? God bless you always !!!! (Original) Excelente doctor lo conozco desde el 97 el atendió mis embarazos de mis hijas me encanta que habla d Dios gran ser humano casi me toma 1 hora para llegar pero no importa porque doctor como el no hay donde vivo en covington ga que mas puedo de decir d el k Dios lo Bendiga siempre!!!!"- T.M. / Google / Nov 18, 2021
"Love my Results but Scarring is Bad - I waited until I could do a real review. Now I’m over 3 months post-op. I first did a consultation the second week of March. Everything went well and told me I would be a candidate. The staff was really nice-A1. I met Dr Sotomayor briefly this day. I paid the deposit and scheduled for 2 weeks out for lower/upper ab and flanks (i wanted to do the back rolls as well but decided not to). I honestly booked on faith because the reviews were iffy. Day of surgery, I come in they take vitals and give me a “relaxation pill” and local anesthesia. Now here is where my problem lies but I was so out of it, I couldn’t respond at the time. I thought Dr Sotomayor was doing the surgery but it ended up being a lady named Dr. V. I feel she did me good but this def should’ve been communicated because I literally knew nothing about her. During the approx 2hr surgery, it was a bit painful but they acknowledged my pain and handled it great. I was sent home with instructions and meds.To sum this all up, I love my results considering I had a lot of fat-i think she said she got rid of 4000cc. After the lipo, i was not in a ton of pain but the itching and swelling is a beast. The scarring is bad. I have use Shea butter, Vitamin E oil and Bio Oil every single day, twice a day. The scarring has improved and hopefully will be non existent one day but only time and consistency will tell. If you are ok with scarring then go with them. The price was good considering I had a 35 BMI. My advice to Graceful Contours is to be up front about who will perform the surgery. I will add pics of my great outcome!"- C. / RealSelf / Jul 25, 2021

Am I A Candidate For ThermiTight?
ThermiTight may be an excellent treatment option if you have loose, sagging skin and are not eligible for more invasive aesthetic procedures or plastic surgery. This treatment can be performed on a number of regions of the body and face to address lax skin. The best candidates for this minimally invasive skin tightening solution:
- Are in good overall health
- Experience mild to moderate sagging skin
- Desire to boost the condition and look of their face or body
- Have dynamic wrinkles on their body or face
- Maintain a healthy weight
How ThermiTight Works
ThermiTight is an outpatient procedure performed at our Norcross, GA office. After placing a small amount of anesthetic solution into the treatment area, Dr. Sotomayor will place a thin probe into the targeted region and use gentle motions to heat up the tissues beneath the skin. ThermiTight employs state-of-the-art RF technology that maintains a consistent temperature during the treatment. By heating the deep layers, the RF device helps to promote collagen production, which creates smoother, tighter skin. The treatment itself takes about an hour.
What To Expect After A ThermiTight Treatment
You may experience minor redness, swelling, or bruising that usually subsides within 48 – 72 hours. After a ThermiTight treatment, you'll be able to return to your normal routine; however, it is recommended that you wait at least a day to resume exercise programs. Some patients may see ThermiTight results almost immediately after treatment, but typically, more noticeable results can be seen within the next 3 – 4 weeks with continued improvements over the next six months or so for tighter, firmer, and younger-looking skin. Most patients can expect their ThermiTight results to be long-lasting, with many enjoying improvements for about two years or longer (up to four years) before a touch-up treatment may be recommended.
How long do ThermiTight results last?
Most patients can expect their ThermiTight results to last up to four years before a maintenance procedure may be recommended. With a healthy diet, regular exercise, and healthy living habits, patients can better maintain and prolong their results.
Does a ThermiTight treatment hurt?
No, most patients don’t experience pain during a ThermiTight treatment since we will numb the treatment area with a local anesthetic before we begin. Some patients may experience minor discomfort, but most find it very tolerable and don’t consider it painful.
How soon do you see results?
Some patients may see almost immediate results after a ThermiTight treatment. Most patients can expect to see improving results over 3 – 6 weeks, with optimal results usually reached in about 6 – 8 months.
What body areas can ThermiTight treat?
ThermiTight treatments can improve the appearance of the face, neck, abdomen, flanks, upper arms, thighs, knees, and back.
How long does a ThermiTight treatment take?
Most procedures can be completed in about 1 – 3 hours, depending on the body area and size of the treatment area.
