An aesthetics doctor has revealed how she has seen a huge rise in bookings for an innovative new neck tightening treatment, as an increased number of Brits are unhappy with how they look on video calls during lockdown.

Cosmetic Surgeon Dr Lucy Glancey, from London, told FEMAIL she has had an influx of inquiries for the non-invasive ‘NeckTite’ procedure.

The tightening treatment uses radio frequency to breakdown fat around the jowls and neck, and give a ‘lifted, contoured’ look to the jawline and surrounding area.

It claims to last up to five years, but will set you back £1800-£2800 depending on the area treated, and if liposuction is needed on top.

Dr Glancey said: ‘FaceTime and Zoom calls are now the new norm since lockdown, but for many the often unflattering angle and lighting has given them a complex about their chin and jawline area. 

‘Whilst Botox and filler in the jawline area is easy and popular, it doesn’t last forever and is a very temporary solution.

‘People are realising that video calls could be here to stay, and are anxious to get their jawlines seen to.’

She explained: ‘NeckTite is an innovative minimally invasive procedure which uses radio frequency in order to tighten the soft tissues of the face and neck.

‘The procedure contours the neck, removing excess fat from sagging skin and then tightening it. It is a safe, non-surgical way of treating fat and loose skin in the neck area.’ 

The NeckTite procedure works in one hour-long single session to contour the neck by removing excess fat and tightening sagging skin, using heat from a radio frequency device. 

Targeting what is sometimes referred to as ‘turkey neck’, a small incision is made into the neck following a local anaesthetic, before the device is inserted to target problem areas.  

The new treatment claims to be able to result in soft tissue around the neck area contracting by up to 40 percent.

Dr Lucy Glancey told FEMAIL the treatment is gaining popularity over the more invasive neck lift, as results are ‘quickly visible and long lasting’, and there is no scarring – as well as being less expensive. 

As Boris Johnson loosens lockdown rules, salons and clinics are reopening their doors, with social distancing methods in force. 

How does the NeckTite treatment work? 

How it works

The procedure lasts an hour and aims to contour the neck by removing excess fat from sagging skin and then tightening it using radio frequency.

The patient is given a local anaesthetic before the doctor makes a small incision to insert the NeckTite device under the skin.

The device uses Radio Frequency (RF) energy to target the treatment area and melt excess fat cells using temperature controlled frequency.

Down time

Patients are said to be able to resume normal activities within 1-2 working days.

Slight bruises and mild swelling are the two most visible side effects which should disappear within a week.

Cost

The Cost is £1800-£2800 depending on the area treated and if Vaser liposuction is needed on top.

How long does it last?

Results will be visible on the day and improve over the next few months as the body starts producing collagen.

The procedure encourages the body to produce new collagen, and the results can last for five years or more.

How does it differ from surgery?

There is no surgical operation or scarring, and it is described as ‘virtually pain-free’.

It is minimally invasive, because only a small incision is required.
