A surgical neck lift is not for everyone. With recovery time, risk factors and personal preferences to consider, going the non-surgical route is a popular choice for many people who want to achieve a tighter, more lifted appearance without going under the knife. That brings us to our non-surgical skin tightening solutions at Skin Care Institute, which deliver impressive results in a short amount of time: Sylfirm X Radio Frequency (RF) microneedling and Ultherapy® skin tightening.
Here’s a look at how these two treatments work differently to achieve the same goal: tightening loose neck skin with minimal downtime and long-lasting results:
Sylfirm X RF microneedling
How it works: This FDA-cleared microneedling device is the first and only to feature Pulsed Wave and Continuous Wave Radio Frequency technology to target both skin laxity and pigmentation simultaneously. As the RF energy provides heat, the microneedles stimulate a natural healing response, creating a synergistic boost of skin renewal and new collagen growth for tighter, more youthful skin.
Treatment time: 20 to 45 minutes.
Ideal number of treatments: Three to four treatments spaced four to six weeks apart.
Downtime: Minimal to none. Since Sylfirm X RF uses patented exosome technology, we will apply a topical cosmetic solution packed with isolated and purified exosomes to help speed healing time as well as enhance your results.
Result expectations: Benefits to your skin tone and texture may be visible immediately after treatment. As new collagen is generated up to three months following each treatment, you will experience continued improvements.
Ultherapy skin tightening
How it works: Known as the non-surgical uplift, this FDA-cleared treatment uses non-invasive ultrasound energy to stimulate and tighten the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical neck lift.
Treatment time: 60 to 90 minutes.
Ideal number of treatments: Many patients need only one Ultherapy treatment to see their best results, though some may benefit from more than one, depending on the severity of their skin laxity. Follow-up treatments every year can help maintain results.
Downtime: None; minor side effects like slight redness should subside within hours.
Result expectations: Results will appear gradually two to three months following your treatment as new collagen is generated, with optimal results in six months.
