Richmond, VA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/07/2015 -- Dr. Travis Shaw, MD, specialist in non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, is Richmond, VA's go-to physician for patients who want to drastically improve their appearance and confidence without undergoing major surgery. One of Dr. Shaw's most successful procedures is ThermiTight, a non-surgical facelift that Richmond, VA, patients love for its minimal downtime and beautiful results.
ThermiTight is perfect for patients who want to correct sagging necks, jaws, arms and stomachs as well as cellulite and back fat. All of these issues contribute to patients feeling aged or unattractive, but ThermiTight quickly and effectively resolves them.
The procedure uses radiofrequency energy to tighten tissue permanently. After applying a numbing cream to the treatment area, a small probe is inserted and deep, gentle heat delivered so that skin shrinks and fat melts. The body absorbs the excess tissue. Patients see results gradually, with most seeing a major improvement at the three-month mark. Many patients report that their results are still satisfactory three years in. This is usually a one-time procedure that takes only sixty minutes to ninety minutes and can be performed in Dr. Shaw's Richmond, VA office.
During the procedure, the temperature of the heat being delivered is limited and monitored, making the treatment completely safe. Most patients who undergo ThermiTight report very little discomfort, but Dr. Shaw can administer a light sedative if necessary. Unlike facelifts, arm lifts, abdominoplasty and liposuction, which are major surgeries that require long periods of recovery, can leave scars and risk complications, ThermiTight requires no cutting, stitches or general anesthesia and results in no scarring or bruising.
