Facial Skin Tightening in Philadelphia, PA
The Lumen Tight

Are you looking to eliminate sagging jowls, double chin and the dreaded “turkey neck”? Both women and men have seen natural-looking, long-lasting results that redefined the neck and jawline. The Lumen Tight is a skin tightening treatment, specially designed to tighten the face, chin and neck. Facial skin tightening can reveal stunning results and take years off your appearance.

What Is Lumen Tight?

Aging causes our tissues to lose their elasticity and sag, and the lower face is especially prone to these changes. The Lumen Tight is a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure to rejuvenate and revitalize your appearance.

Using laser energy, the loose skin of the neck, jowls and chin is tightened. Your new sculpted face and neckline will look soft and natural – never stretched or overdone. Just tighter, firmer and smoother skin to lessen the visible signs of aging. The Lumen Tight can make you look healthier, well-rested and years younger.

Lumen Tight Procedure

The skin tightening procedure starts with application of a saline solution containing a local anesthetic to the treatment area. Then, a very small 1-3mm (“freckle mark”) incision is made under the chin. A tiny cannula (tube) containing a laser fiber is inserted that emits laser energy directly to fat cells, just enough to achieve the desired shape of the area. This causes the fat cells to burst and the liquified fat is gently suctioned out of the area. Heat from the laser results in less bleeding, swelling and bruising. It also stimulates the growth of collagen, which causes the skin to continue to tighten over the next 3-4 months, redefining the jaw and neckline.

The Lumen Tight procedure can be completed in less than two hours.

The benefits of skin tightening treatment are numerous. You’ll regain a youthful face and neck and tighter, smoother skin. If jowls or a double chin are concerns, these can be eliminated, and you’ll achieve better jawline and neck definition.

The Lumen Tight produces a dramatic change that will last 5-6 years.

The Lumen Tight is a tightening procedure for the neck and jowls and addresses the lower third of the face. It’s the first step in our complete, minimally-invasive facelift, The Lumen Lift. The Lumen Lift both tightens the chin, neck and/or jowls areas and fills around sunken eyes and cheeks to provide a desirable heart-shaped, healthy look to the face. Filler is obtained from your own stem cell rich fat, which is purified and injected into the dormant cells of your face. The result is an organic lift that enhances the quality and structure of the skin.

Dr. Andrew Kwak, founder of the Lumen Center, will provide a full consultation to discuss your goals, plan and vision to achieve the best results possible. After reviewing your medical history, he will perform an examination and discuss expectations. You will receive detailed instructions on how to prepare for your procedure and what to expect during and after the Lumen Tight procedure.

The Lumen Tight procedure is performed on an outpatient basis in The Lumen Center office in Bryn Mawr, PA.

Results can appear immediately after the procedure, and your skin will continue to tighten over the next 3-4 months.

"I was extremely unhappy with my jowls and the firmness of my neckline. After looking into several options, I decided upon The Lumen Center for a Lumen Tight procedure. Dr. Kwak and his staff were amazing! I saw results almost immediately but as Dr. Kwak promised, my neck and Jowls became tighter and firmer over a period of time. I look better, I feel better and I know I made a great decision. Thank you, Dr. Kwak for your honesty!"
