What Is a Non-Surgical NeckTite Procedure?
Aging can cause many changes in the appearance of the neck. Skin can become loose and start to sag, fat can accumulate, and wrinkles can appear, causing us to look older than we are. However, these signs of aging can be eliminated and self-confidence restored with the NeckTite procedure.
What Is NeckTite, and How Is It Performed?
Less invasive than traditional cosmetic surgery, the NeckTite procedure employs radiofrequency assisted lipolysis technology (RFAL) to remove fat and tighten the skin in one process.
A needle-sized hole is made in the skin, through which a narrow wand is inserted. This wand heats the subdermis of the skin. When this happens, both skin and fat are heated, causing the skin to tighten, collagen production to be triggered, and fat to be melted and easily removed.
What Are the Benefits of NeckTite and FaceTite?
Both the NeckTite and FaceTite procedures offer a way to achieve tighter and younger-looking skin without the scarring or longer procedure times of traditional cosmetic techniques. They are also significantly less invasive than traditional techniques and, therefore, can be accomplished with virtually no pain.
Individuals looking to undergo any of these procedures can opt for sedation or local or general anesthesia, and they can expect a minimal amount of downtime, which is typically between one and three days.
Depending on the condition of your skin at the time of the procedure, you may see your desired results in a single treatment. As well, once collagen production is triggered, it will continue in the weeks following the procedure, offering continued improvement in the look of your skin.
What to Expect in NeckTite Recovery
In the first two to three weeks following the procedure, you will have to wear a compression garment but can return to normal, low-impact activities like walking after a few days. Healing and repair will take between three and six months.
Although the procedure is minimally invasive, you can expect to feel numbness in the skin, see bruising, and notice swelling of the skin immediately following the completion of the procedure. These symptoms will fade in a short time.
Why Choose a Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedure Like NeckTite?
NeckTite and other non-surgical procedures not only offer a short recovery time but, because they are so minimally invasive, you can combine them with other forms of non-surgical cosmetic procedures like FaceTite and BodyTite for simultaneous results all over the body.
Is NeckTite Right for You?
If you are a man or woman with sagging skin or unwanted contours on your neck who wants to correct these without invasive traditional cosmetic surgery, you’re likely to see significant NeckTite results.
Men and women can be good candidates. If you have unwanted fat or excess skin that remains despite your healthy diet and exercise efforts, you are likely to benefit.
