About Neck Tightening
With aging, the skin of the neck can become loose or sagging, which can affect your confidence level. However, at Scottsdale Plastic Surgery, Dr. James Nachbar provides nonsurgical neck tightening with ThermiTight to treat skin laxity and help to sculpt the neck to create a more youthful appearance. ThermiTight uses controlled thermal energy under the skin to target the deep tissues of the skin to tighten it and stimulate the production of collagen. It is a great option for patients who are wanting tighter skin but do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure. In some cases, Dr. Nachbar may combine ThermiTight with another procedure to increase your overall results of tighter, rejuvenated skin. Contact our Scottsdale, AZ office to learn more about nonsurgical neck tightening procedures.

An ideal candidate for nonsurgical neck tightening would be an individual with mild to moderate loose skin on the neck. Dr. Nachbar will consult with patients to evaluate whether a nonsurgical approach will likely be sufficient to obtain their desired results. If the patient has severe sagging skin, such as from significant weight loss, a surgical procedure may be needed to achieve optimal results.
ThermiTight is performed with local anesthesia and requires a single treatment. After making the tiny incisions under local anesthesia and injecting the anesthetic, Dr. Nachbar will insert the radiofrequency probe into the tissue of the treated area via very small incisions. He will then administer a controlled amount of heat through the probe. By applying the heat directly to the tissue, the heating occurs from the inside out. The temperature is monitored and controlled by a computer to ensure safety. In addition, an infrared camera is trained on the neck during the procedure, to ensure that the skin does not become hot enough to cause a burn. After the area has been treated, Dr. Nachbar will gently wrap the area.
What to Expect
Following the treatment, patients may experience some swelling and bruising. Typically, patients can return to their normal daily activities within 24 hours, and Dr. Nachbar will provide further after-care instructions. At your follow-up appointment, Dr. Nachbar will remove your sutures and will assess the healing process. Maximal results take four to six months to develop, and result from the tightening that results from healing of the carefully-controlled burning of the deeper tissue.
