Guide to Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
• Non-surgical skin tightening procedures work by using targeted energy instead of surgery.
• It involves heating deeper layers of skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin production and gradually improves skin tone and texture.
• There are many FDA cleared skin tightening treatments on the market; each uses a unique mechanism to achieve the desired result.
Why consider non-surgical skin tightening?
• As we age, production of collagen and elastin—two proteins that help our skin stay plump, firm and smooth—slows down, resulting in sagging skin on the face, neck and body.
• If you are seeking solution for sagging skin, non-surgical skin tightening can be an ideal choice to halt this process temporarily and restore a firmer, smoother, more youthful appearance with little to no downtime.
Benefits of non-surgical skin tightening:
• Tightens mild to moderately sagging skin on the face, neck or body without surgery.
• Many treatments can provide a noticeable “lifting” effect.
• Little to no downtime is needed.
• Generally treatments can be performed in 1 hour or less.
• Results can last up to 1 year.
• Almost no side effects.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound( Also known as Ultherapy):
• It uses focused ultrasound energy, which heats skin at specific depths and locations to cause collagen production and help skin become firmer.
• Treatments are done through a handheld device, which transmits the ultrasound waves through the skin’s surface.
• Ultrasound technology has been used in medicine for many decades, and ultrasound skin tightening has an excellent safety profile.
Things to know about ultrasound skin tightening:
• Ultherapy, the most widely used name brand, is FDA cleared to be done mostly on the face.
• Effectively treats early signs of aging on the face and neck.
• Alternative to facelift surgery.
• Treatments take 30 to 90 minutes, with no downtime.
• One of the main concerns with HIFU or UL therapy treatment for our patients is the level of discomfort. It can be a painful treatment for some, especially the deeper penetration.
• Side effects are typically mild and include temporary redness, bruising, and numbness.
• Results are seen within 2 to 3 months and can last up to a year with good at-home skincare.
Radiofrequency (RF) treatments
• Radiofrequency (RF) energy can also be used to heat the skin and trigger collagen production.
• In contrast to Ultherapy, RF focuses on epidermal layers to achieve a firmer, smoother appearance.
Things to know about RF skin tightening:
• FDA cleared options can treat the face, neck, hands, and body.
• Treatments can be performed in-office, typically involve little to no discomfort, and require no downtime.
• Gentle on the skin, so ideal for sensitive skin type.
• Results appear gradually over several months following treatment.
• A series of 2 to 6 treatments may be recommended for effective results
IPL/RF combination treatments
• A third class of skin tightening treatments combine intense pulsed light (IPL) with radiofrequency (RF) to heat deeper layers of skin and induce the natural healing response, which in turn triggers collagen production.
• The addition of IPL allows a provider to treat skin at multiple levels and can help focus the RF energy for more effective treatment.
Things to know about IPL/RF combination treatments:
• Treatments can be performed in-office with little to no downtime.
• Patients typically experience little to no discomfort.
• Results appear gradually as the skin produces new collagen.
• A series of treatments may be recommended for optimal results.
