Can I Tighten Skin Without Surgery?

Loose, sagging skin can be a bothersome problem for many men and women. Our skin loses elasticity after weight fluctuations, sun damage, and hormonal changes associated with the natural aging process. While many of our patients would like to address this common concern, they’re simply not ready to undergo risky surgical procedures with extensive downtime.

Thankfully, surgery is no longer your only option when it comes to effectively tightening skin. At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, our go-to treatment for non-surgical skin tightening is minimally-invasive BodyTite®. For patients that would like to combat lax skin on the face can now take advantage of FaceTite® procedures.

Minimally- Invasive BodyTite® Treatments

BodyTite® is a revolutionary body contouring procedure that helps patients improve overall skin health using powerful, yet gentle radiofrequency technology. Patients can significantly lift, tighten, and tone skin with a single BodyTite procedure. The thermal energy used in BodyTite treatments also gives patients a more sculpted appearance by tightening and smoothing loose and sagging skin resulting from pregnancy, weight loss, and the natural aging process.

Get the figure you’ve always wanted with minimal scarring, side effects, or downtime. BodyTite provides instantly noticeable results with an optimal outcome in about 4-6 weeks. The procedure has long-term skin tightening effects that last upwards of 12+ months. Downtime is minimal and most patients feel comfortable returning to work or other non-strenuous activities after just 3-7 days.

Minimally-Invasive FaceTite® Procedures

FaceTite® is an energy-assisted, minimally-invasive skin-tightening procedure. Treatment is much less traumatic than a traditional surgical facelift but produces exceptional results. Many patients opt for FaceTite® to contour the jowls, chin, or neck for a well-defined profile.

FaceTite® procedure can last anywhere from 3-5 years when performed correctly by a skilled body contouring specialist. Many patients can achieve their desired results with just one FaceTite® procedure. Side effects are typically minimal allowing you to get back to your regular routine several days after treatment.

What’s Right for You?

Your BodyTite and FaceTite treatments can be done as a stand-alone treatment or paired with traditional liposuction depending on your ultimate goals. During your consultation, your doctor will assess your concerns and customize a treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results with as little downtime as possible.
