The question of what is face tight comes up often because this innovative minimally invasive procedure offers the kind of results that many patients are after without the downtime and recovery process associated with a surgical facelift or neck lift. FaceTite uses a new bipolar radiofrequency technique that delivers heat through a thin cannula inserted underneath the skin. This can contract the skin and eliminate a double chin or other area of loose skin around the jaw line and neck.
As we age, the body loses important collagen and elastin to give the skin its tightness and resilience. In addition, pockets of excess fat cells start to accumulate, resulting in submental fat (a double chin), jowls, or other unsightly lines and wrinkles that can detract from the appearance of a youthful glow.
If your facial laxity is mild to moderate, a non-surgical facelift can tighten the skin and remove a double chin. For more significant laxity, however, a surgical facelift or neck contouring might be the best option. During your consultation, we’ll help you determine which of our skin tightening treatments might be most appropriate for you.
