Non-Surgical Skin Tightening- Introducing a New Way to Reverse Aging
When we are young, our skin is resilient and seemingly unphased by factors like sun exposure or weight changes. It is not until we reach a certain age that many of us realize we took youthful skin for granted. Fortunately, modern cosmetic technology has allowed for non-surgical skin tightening treatments to quietly turn back the clock without the flash and flare of a major cosmetic surgery.
If it’s Not Surgery, What is it?
Non-surgical skin tightening procedures such as FaceTiteand AccuTiteutilize minimally invasive radio-frequency energy to simultaneously melt fat and pull the skin into a taught and youthful contour. There is no scarring, no downtime, and patientsgo home the day of the treatment.
What Exactly Does Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Treat?
Often, patients will avoid traditional plastic surgery due to barriers of cost and recovery time. Many simply do not want to get more involved than they have to with major surgery. What you may not know is that beautiful results can be achieved without any surgery at all.

Benefits of Skin Tightening
If you care about glowing skin, collagen and elastin are two words to keep in mind. These two proteins are produced naturally in our body and help our skin stay firm, smooth, and resilient. As we age, the production of these proteins slows down. It’s completely natural, however sagging skin around the body, neck, and face leave many disappointed and self-conscious. Non-surgical skin tightening offers patients an opportunity to restore skin to its former glory with very minimal downtime.

Non-surgical skin tightening is best for:
- Patients who wish to see improved skin laxity and firmness in select, targeted areas of the face

Why Should I Choose Non-Surgical Face Tightening Over a Traditional Facelift?
