What is NeckTite™?
NeckTite tightens the skin on your neck while removing fat at the same time, and is often referred to as a laser neck lift.
Whilst weight loss is perfect for fat removal, it often leaves flabby, excess skin behind, NeckTite uses innovative technology to not only remove fat, but tighten in the process to tighten neck and face skin.
What is the Necktite used for?
As with the face, the neck is also one of the first areas of the body to show signs of ageing. As skin loses its elasticity, it begins to sag, resulting in an increase of lines and neck wrinkles. Excess skin may also be a result of severe weight loss and pregnancy. NeckTite is specifically designed to tighten the skin on your neck without causing damage to any of the delicate areas nearby, making it one of the best treatments for sagging neck and jowls. Here at Zenith, we also offer BodyTite and FaceTite services working in the same way to tighten the skin for a more youthful appearance.
Who is the treatment suitable for?
Anyone suffering from ageing, baggy, loose skin on the area above the shoulders, including the neck and jaw areas is suitable for a neck lift via Necktite. However, it is important to note that necktite is not suitable for pregnant women.
What happens during a necktite neck lift?
Our senior doctor, Doctor Maini, will administer a local anaesthetic to your chin and neck area. The NeckTite cannula is then inserted and the fat is heated using radiofrequency, which instantly and visibly tightens the skin. Once the area has been heated to the required temperature, the melted oil/fat is very gently removed.
How long does it take?
Typically, your NeckTite procedure will take between 1 and 3 hours. However, this will be dependent on the severity of the saggy skin, how much loose neck skin you have and the size of the area you wish to be treated.
What are the side effects or risks?
- Bruising (although this is minimal)
Necktite lift results
Within a few days you should be able to see that your neck is much smoother and the skin is tighter.
Very occasionally, it can take slightly longer to see the full effect of your procedure.
In some cases, a second treatment may be required to tighten the skin further; especially if you are older or there is significant damage to your skin.
A supportive neck garment is worn for three days post neck lift procedure. The majority of patients need no more than two paracetamol to manage any pain. We ask that patients avoid blood thinning medication for five days.
When can I return to work?
We would usually advise taking anywhere between 7 and 14 days from work following a NeckTite procedure.
