What is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?
Throughout our younger years, we can enjoy an abundant supply of collagen and elastin that helps to keep our skin soft and resilient. In time, this foundational storage of proteins is likely to run low, making the skin lose firmness, which results in lines, wrinkles, and an older appearance. When you want to boost the appearance of your complexion with noninvasive techniques, then you could think about nonsurgical skin tightening at Mississippi Center for Plastic Surgery. With the application of advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology, nonsurgical skin tightening works to stimulate the natural generation of fibers and proteins so you can have tighter, radiant skin. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Steckler and his staff are pleased to provide nonsurgical skin tightening options like FaceTite™, NeckTite™, and BodyTite™ for individuals who hope to rejuvenate and firm their skin with popular noninvasive procedures.

How Does Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Work?
Your nonsurgical skin tightening treatment is usually performed with local anesthesia; however, general anesthesia may be used if you're nervous or having several areas treated. The advanced applicator is inserted via very small incisions in your skin. The applicator has an internal and external thermometer to guard you from burns. To start, Dr. Steckler will use the applicator to liquefy and loosen fat using RF waves so that the fat can be easily removed from your body. At the same tight, you skin will be tightened. FaceTite, NeckTite, and BodyTite therapies usually take around 30 – 45 minutes per area. Several treatments may be needed to meet your needs. You'll need to rest at home for about a day following FaceTite and NeckTite, but may need around 5 – 10 days of rest after BodyTite. A compression garment may be required to promote healing while also maintaining your new body contours. Some outcomes may be visible immediately; however, it can take several months for the swelling and inflammation subside. Even though the fat that is removed cannot return, the remaining fat cells may become bigger if you gain weight, therefore it's very important to keep a healthy, stable weight following nonsurgical skin tightening.
