An Introduction to Skin Tightening

Non-invasive, non-surgical skin tightening is the perfect solution to bringing elasticity and youth back into your skin.

Most of these treatments work by heating the layers of the skin to boost collagen and elastin production in the skin, which is responsible for keeping skin plump.

These treatments are targeted towards those who hope to reduce signs of aging, the most common being loose skin on the face and body.

Types of Skin Tightening Treatments:

Evolve Skin Tightening

Evolve uses radio-frequency technology to stimulate collagen and reshape the body, creating a more toned look.

In scientific terms, Evolve aims to reduce adipose tissue, in other words, to reduce body fat.

Like many other skin tightening treatments, Evolve takes 30- 60 minutes and is best for reducing cellulite and improving body shape.

Morpheus 8 Skin Tightening

Morpheus 8 is a micro-needling treatment, which simply means puncturing the skin with tiny needles to jumpstart collagen production.

Although there are a variety of micro-needling treatments, Morpheus 8 specifically uses radiofrequency, heating skin tissue. This treatment is best for reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Forma Skin Tightening

Brought into the mainstream by a variety of celebrities, the Forma facial is often described as a “non-surgical facelift.”

Using similar collagen-producing technology as other forms of skin tightening, Forma aims to contour the skin on the face, producing a more lifted, defined, and chiseled face and jaw.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

IPL, which stands for intense pulsed light, is used for a variety of skin resurfacing treatments, such as reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

But aside from skin tightening, IPL is used for a variety of anti-aging treatments such as removing aging spots, varicose veins, and sunspots.

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light treatment, targets certain colors in your skin, whether that skin is darker from acne scarring or sun exposure. It works by heating the skin, triggering the body to get rid of unwanted cells, such as those making your skin uneven.

PLP and Microneedling

PLP or platelet-rich plasma is used in conjunction with micro-needling to revitalize the skin and restore a youthful glow.

This treatment begins by drawing blood from the skin, the blood platelets are then separated and a specialist prepares the enriched plasma that will be returned to the skin.

In general, skin tightening treatments work best when done multiple times. While results are often visible after the first treatment, for longer-lasting results it is important to do these treatments in sessions.

Benefits of Non-Invasive Skin Tightening

There are many benefits to non-invasive body tightening treatments. Besides rejuvenating your skin and decreasing signs of aging, these treatments take only about 30 minutes to one hour.

Skin tightening treatments are also almost always painless, so while beauty usually means pain, it does not always have to!

The best part of non-invasive treatment is that it does not require any recovery time. While surgical procedures often require you to take days off to fully and safely recover, non-invasive treatments heal quickly.
