The Most Effective Non-Surgical Treatments for Your Face and Neck

Many people start considering cosmetic solutions once they reach middle age. It all starts at the focal point of your appearance — your face and neck. Sagging and volume loss around your eyes, cheekbones, jowls, and neckline can make you look tired and worn. If you want to enhance your appearance, start with your skin.

Though plastic surgery is an effective option, you might prefer to achieve effective results without enduring extensive recovery time and risking post-surgical complications. Plus, the idea of swelling, bruising, and perhaps a little scarring could make you hesitant to pursue procedures like facelift or neck lift surgery.

The good news is there are effective non-surgical solutions in Chicago for your neck and face. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Epstein offers state-of-the-art treatments using Morpheus 8 and Fractora for facial improvement and SkinTite  with Renuvion for sagging skin on your neck. 

Morpheus 8

This groundbreaking skin care treatment employs two powerful cosmetic treatments — radiofrequency and microneedling. The device delivers RF energy deep into the dermis through tiny micro-punctures to induce skin correction and healing. The healing initiated by the micro-wounds in facial skin leads to increased collagen production, restoring youthful skin texture and firmness.

Set aside a couple of hours to spend relaxing with us at our stress-free Transcend Med Spa. The topical anesthetic takes about 45 minutes to kick in, and the treatment typically takes 30 minutes to an hour.

Primary benefits include:

  • One of the most penetrating RF treatments available, Morpheus 8 delivers powerful energy up to eight millimeters deep within skin tissue.
  • It can treat several facial and body areas.
  • It’s a versatile treatment for various skin conditions, including wrinkles, rough skin texture, scars, and skin laxity.
  • You’ll notice dramatic results after one session.


Fractora is also microneedling with radiofrequency energy being delivered at a more superficial level  than Morpheus.  It would be considered a resurfacing treatment for the reduction of wrinkles and uneven skin texture but without the downtime of resurfacing lasers.   It delivers a radiant and youthful appearance from the intradermal delivery of radiofrequency energy, allowing controlled heat to penetrate your skin. It employs a matrix of micro-pins to invigorate collagen regeneration and restore your skin’s texture with minimal downtime.

Advantages include:

  • Targets skin and intradermal layers of tissues
  • Rapid healing
  • Improves skin appearance with fractional coagulation and ablation
  • Delivers some skin tightening, resurfacing, wrinkle reduction, and skin rejuvenation
  • Promotes renewed skin tissue
  • Significantly reduces cystic acne
  • Improves the appearance of acne scarring by up to 50%
  • Safe on skin type VI with minimal risk of hyperpigmentation common with other resurfacing technologies
  • Involves minimal downtime, discomfort, and risk

SkinTite with Renuvion

SkinTite reduces the appearance of sagging skin and diminishes unwanted fat pockets in multiple areas. Dr. Epstein starts the procedure by applying local anesthesia or administering light sedation. Then, if you struggle with excess fat, he employs a small cannula to remove the unwanted tissue. Next, he unleashes radiofrequency energy to encourage skin contraction. SkinTite takes about the same time as the average liposuction treatment, but with the added ability to more effectively tighten sagging or loose skin.

After the procedure, you will notice a gradual improvement, with your lower face and neck skin becoming tighter and smoother. As your skin contracts, facial features like your jawline and cheek definition will return to youthful contours. Since SkinTite induces tissue remodeling, the benefits are long-lasting. This procedure rebuilds your skin from within and helps the skin retain its younger characteristics.

SkinTite enhances the appearance of the lower face and neck without the incisional scars and downtime of a lower face and neck lift.
