Loose skin can now be treated with a new medical technology called Thermacell. This process tightens the skin using focused energy (radio waves) that causes the collagen and protein in the skin to shrink. This shrinking tightens the skin and causes new collagen to form making it stronger and more resilient. The effects increase over time with maximum results achieved a few months after treatment.
Salt Lake City Thermacell Skin Tightening
Thermacell lifts and tightens sagging skin without surgery and without downtime. The procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep layers of your skin and thereby tightens existing collagen and stimulates new collagen growth.
Thermacell can be used to tighten skin on ANY body area. Without damaging the surface, the radiofrequency energy is absorbed by the dermal layer of skin tissue where it tightens existing collagen and triggers new collagen production. Results are achieved gradually from the inside out! The treatment is quick and virtually painless. After a treatment, most patients experience only minor redness, which subsides within an hour or so.
How does it work?
The radiofrequency (RF) energy uniformly heats the dermis while cooling and protecting the epidermis. It is designed to cause immediate collagen contraction followed by new collagen production, which occurs over a period of time. The procedure is the only non-invasive method to tighten loose skin.

What does a Thermacell Skin Tightening Procedure feel like?
Most patients say that their treatment feels like a warm massage
How long will the Salt Lake City Thermacell Skin Tightening Procedure take?
Depending on the size of the area treated, the procedure itself may take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour. Three to eight treatment are done within a few days of each other.
When can I return to my normal activities?
You may return to your normal activities immediately, as there is usually no “downtime”. Minimal redness is seen in some patients but it usually disappears shortly after treatment. Heat-related complications can occur but are uncommon. There is no special care needed after treatment. As a part of good skin care, sunscreen is strongly recommended.
When will I see results?
In most patients, results appear gradually over 3-9 months, although some patients see an earlier response. The results from these treatments last 3-5 years.
How many treatments will I need?
Your doctor will assess the number and frequency of treatments required to achieve optimal results for your skin. The doctor may recommend anywhere from 3 to 8 treatment customized to address your individual concerns
