Read this blog if you are wanting to know what the best non-surgical skin tightening procedure is. We discuss Ultherapy vs. Profound vs. ThermiTight as the three best ways to non-surgically lift and tighten the skin. We’d like to distinguish first off the difference between a double chin and a turkey neck. The double chin is caused by excess fat cells under the chin where are turkey neck is excess skin under the chin. Genetics is usually to blame for both
Why am I getting turkey neck?
Well, think of your skin like a pair of your favorite socks, they fit nice and snug hugging all the curves of your arches, toes, and ankles, they stretch and bounce back into shape so well right out of the bag. Then as you wash and wear them over time they become saggy, less comfortable and thin. I know this is a strange comparison but your skin is very similar. As we age our collagen gets depleted which causes our skin to get thin. We also lose elasticity, the protein that gives our skin its bounce, causing the skin to start sagging in areas under the eyes, cheeks and around the mouth.

We like the above top three non-surgical skin tightening technologies because they use precise heat on targeted areas of the skin.
There are other non-surgical skin tightening devices that try to push heat from the surface layer down into the deep layers of the skin. They are not listed on our top three list because to create actual lifting and tightening of the skin heat needs to be delivered to subdermal layers, at a certain degree of heat, not to the top. Therefore we do not recommend them.
