"I had a great experience with Dr. O'Brien. I had skin cancer on my ear and Dr. O'Brien performed surgery to remove it. The surgery was performed on the day that there was a mobile lab at his office and Dr. O was able to test tissue samples on the spot to ensure all the cancer was removed. Dr. O'Brien not only removed the cancer but did a fantastic job with the appearance of my ear such that one would never even notice any evidence of a surgical procedure. I look great and am cancer free. Many thanks to Dr. O'Brien and his terrific staff. Highly recommended for any type of procedure. Absolutely first class!"- B. / Google / Jan 07, 2020

"Absolutely LOVE this office!!!! The PA Mary does my Dysport injections and she does an amazing job. She is very conscious of being conservative with it so I get the look that I want.I also get spa procedures done here with their esthetician, Dana. The Hydrafacial leaves your skin glowing right after!! She also does dermaplaning on my face, which I never had done, but I will definitely continue to do with her.The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about what they do. I recommend this office to anyone who is looking for cosmetic needs! FIVE stars all the way!"- B.J. / Google / Dec 18, 2019

"I can’t recommend this practice enough! Everyone from the back office staff, to the esthetician, to the PA and doctor are so kind and take such great care of you. I have gotten a few hydrafacials with Dana the esthetician and they are not only relaxing but also very effective. I have also gotten some dermaplaning done and love that it’s a quick add on but helps all my serums and skin care really soak in. The best part about Dana is that she really takes the time to understand your skin goals and adjusts your treatments to make sure everything is aligned. The PA Mary has done my Botox over the past year, over four treatments with varying units between the brows and on my forehead. I like to have expression in my face and not look too “done” or “frozen” and she helps me achieve the perfect look. I still have slight movement in my brows and show expression but without any wrinkling. People always say to me “you don’t need Botox!” so I know that means it’s working exactly as I want it to! I trust Mary completely - she is a perfectionist and cares about giving me the outcome I am looking for, which is so important for someone you are trusting with your face! The staff is so amazing, whether it’s squeezing me in for a last minute appointment or helping me figure out the best treatment plans, they always have a smile and a helpful attitude. I love this practice and can’t imagine going anywhere else for my treatments!"- C.M. / Google / Dec 17, 2019
ThermiTight is a great treatment option for men and women who wish to address loose skin on their neck and jowl area to achieve a slimmer and tighter-looking contour. This treatment is also an excellent alternative to invasive surgery as it requires little to no downtime. The best way to determine if ThermiTight is right for you is to undergo a private consultation with Dr. O'Brien at our office in St. Petersburg.
A ThermiTight treatment can take between 30 minutes to one hour to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area. During treatment, a tiny probe is inserted under the skin which emits radiofrequency energy. ThermiTight is also equipped with the Thermal Image Guidance™ feature, which allows Dr. O’Brien optimal control of temperature to deliver energy to the ideal depth for beautiful results. This energy causes collagen molecules to contract, shrinking the loose tissues immediately. Results will also improve over time as more collagen is produced, restoring support to the structure of your skin. This means your loose and sagging skin will appear tighter and more youthful for a boost in confidence.
What to Expect
Following a ThermiTight treatment, you may experience mild swelling and redness, which should resolve on its own. There is little downtime needed, with most patients able to return to everyday activities after 24 hours. ThermiTight results can last for several years, so you can enjoy your results long-term. If you have any questions regarding the ThermiTight treatment, do not hesitate to ask Dr. O’Brien. We want to ensure you are comfortable with every step of the treatment process.
