Your face and body skin may be showing the signs of aging, becoming slack, loose, and sad. The loss of collagen is a normal change – but can leave you feeling very unhappy.

The development of the ThermiTight system has provided a new method for skin rejuvenation which produces a dramatic improvement in skin tightness, quality, and appearance.

What is ThermiTight?

ThermiTight is an advanced skin tightening treatment that involves the use of heat to tighten and firm slack, loose skin. It requires only one application, is minimally invasive, and involves little downtime or recovery.

The procedure is easy to experience and produces a significant improvement in skin on various body areas, including:

  • Neck
  • Breasts
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Knees

The heat emitted by the device is created with radiofrequency energy, stimulating natural collagen production for improvements that get better with every passing day. With tighter skin on the treated area and higher levels of collagen produced naturally, you can look far younger with the help of ThermiTight.

What is a ThermiTight Procedure Like?

The treatment is not hard to experience; local anesthesia is injected beneath your skin to make it comfortable for you. A tiny probe is inserted into the areas where your skin has become saggy or loose, with the energy delivered to the deeper layers of your skin.

The tissues treated tighten so your skin is once again looking rejuvenated, fresh, and youthful. The tissue retraction aspect of the treatment produces results that are visible almost immediately, with the ongoing effect of the collagen production producing more supple, firm skin in the days following treatment.

The entire treatment takes about an hour to complete after the anesthesia has numbed the area with lax skin, whether neck, breasts, arms, or other zone.

ThermiTight Recovery

After your treatment, you may feel some minor discomfort. You will see immediate results, but the full effect will be visible after one to two months. The results last for several years, after which you can have another treatment if needed.

Candidates for ThermiTight

If you are one of the countless people that see sagging skin that has lost its firm, youthful quality, you are a good candidate for a ThermiTight treatment. Many people want to look their best and correct sagging skin but prefer to avoid surgery – and ThermiTight is the perfect option. If you are in good general health, you are a candidate for this treatment, no matter your skin type or color.

Dr. Merriman: Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Valdosta

Dr. Sonya Merriman has been helping people look their best for over two decades. As the premier plastic surgeon in the Valdosta area, she is known for her caring, warm personality, and her ability to produce very natural results, whether with surgery or with the non-surgical procedures she offers at her private clinic, which serves Valdosta, Waycross, Tifton, and Albany and the entire area.

Recovery Time with ThermiTight

You will need to take a day or two off work after your procedure, as the treatment commonly causes some swelling. The system works by causing controlled damage to the skin structure to promote natural collagen production – there is no better skin firming product than what your own body produces.

The treatment has the effect of disrupting what are called “fibroblasts.” These cells produce collagen, but stop producing it in quantity as the decades pass – resulting in saggy, loose skin.

You will be treated with professionalism, kindness, and exceptional skill.

Our Plan for Resuming In-Office Patient Care

We are pleased to annouce our very soft re-opening to patients this Monday, May 4th. We are not opening to full capacity as we are closely following the recommendations of the American Society of Plastic Surgery and our numerous professional affiliations and governing boards. We will be seeing a very limited number of patients per day. The following outlines our plan and what we are doing to keep you safe.


You will be called the day before your appointment and screened for any symptoms. Any symptoms will require rescheduling.

Upon your arrival your temperature will be taken and you will be asked to rescheduled if over 100.0.

You must wear a mask upon entering the building and will only remove if getting a procedure done on the face. We ask that you please bring a mask to your appointment. Due to limited availability we will provide a mask to you for a charge of $5.

No one can accompany you into the office unless there are significant mobility or communication issues you need help with and in that case only one person can come with you. You may not bring children to your appointment.

Our waiting room is closed. You may enter the building to check in and gather any paperwork you may require and return to your car. You will be called when your room is ready.

Office Safety and Sanitation

Employees will also complete a daily questionnaire and have their temperature taken and will be sent home if there are any symptoms. Employees will wear personal protective equipment throughout your entire visit.

Each room and all areas that patients and employees touch including office supplies or equipment will be sanitized thoroughly between patients according to CDC guidelines.

We have missed you and look forward to seeing you back in the office!
