What Areas Can Be Treated with Non-Surgical Skin Tightening?

As a less-invasive alternative to surgery, non-surgical skin tightening treatments offer many treatment applications that may not be practical with traditional surgical procedures. Both Morpheus8 and FaceTite excel at treating small, localized areas of the body where skin tightening is desired. Morpheus8 is ideal for the neck and other small areas of the body, while we typically recommend FaceTite as a facelift alternative for patients who want comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

What are the Benefits of Non-Surgical Skin Tightening?

Non-surgical skin tightening treatments offer many benefits compared to surgical procedures, including:

What is the Morpheus8 Treatment Like?

The Morpheus8 treatment is minimally invasive and requires no anesthetic, but we’ll apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area before treatment begins. During the treatment, small microneedles penetrate the skin to trigger collagen stimulation. While the needles are beneath the skin’s surface, they emit radiofrequency energy to gently heat the deeper layers of the skin, increasing the benefits of treatment. This is usually done in sections across the treatment area. Patients may feel some discomfort during the procedure but it is tolerable.

What is the FaceTite Treatment Like?

FaceTite is typically performed with local anesthesia or twilight anesthesia, although general anesthesia may be used in rare cases. To administer treatment, Dr. Peters will use the FaceTite handpiece to insert a thin probe under the skin, which delivers thermal energy to the surrounding skin tissue to stimulate collagen production. This also causes the tissues to contract.

Should I Choose Morpheus8 or FaceTite?

The decision between Morpheus8 and FaceTite for non-surgical skin tightening will depend on your desired results and treatment goals. Morpheus8 is good for overall skin rejuvenation, as it improves skin texture, improves skin tone, and reduces acne scarring in addition to tightening the skin. FaceTite, on the other hand, is specifically designed for skin lifting and tightening. It may be ideal for patients who are specifically concerned with sagging skin and wrinkles, but are not seeking treatment for other cosmetic skin concerns. However, the best way to choose between these treatments is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Peters so he can recommend a treatment based on your unique treatment goals.

Is Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Right for You?

If you are looking for a solution to lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, but want to avoid surgery, you may be a good candidate for non-surgical skin tightening. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for these treatments is to schedule a consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Kendall Peters, MD, FACS. He is an expert in cosmetic procedures, both surgical and non-surgical, and can help you identify the treatment options that will best satisfy your treatment goals.
