Nowadays, we can utilize non-invasive radiofrequency devices for skin tightening and skin contouring. These devices work by heating the dermis, and therefore, influence collagen synthesis and remodeling. Skin tightening devices are good options for patients who wish to have a non-surgical facelift or who are poor candidates for traditional facelifts. These procedures are often done without the need for any anesthesia and cost a fraction of a traditional facelift. These procedures are also ideal for working professionals who cannot afford the recovery and downtime of a traditional facelift. Most patients can return to work immediately after the procedure. The full results are not seen until about six months after the procedure. Most patients are encouraged to continue maintenance therapy every 2-3 years in order to keep up with the aging process.
Skin tightening devices available at our offices:
- Thermage™ for non-surgical tightening
- Titan™ for non-surgical tightening
