Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Nonsurgical skin tightening is a cosmetic procedure that delivers heat energy to the skin to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen (proteins in the skin) and give it a tighter, more toned appearance. Skin can sag due to aging or significant weight loss.

Various FDA-approved skin tightening treatments are available. During a consultation, your dermatologist helps you choose one that best matches your needs.

What are the benefits of skin tightening?

Numerous benefits exist when choosing nonsurgical skin tightening at Specialists in Dermatology. Examples include:

  • Tighter skin on your body, face, and neck
  • No surgery and no scars
  • A lifting effect
  • Low risk of adverse side effects
  • Treatments performed in-office
  • Little to no downtime
  • Results that may last up to a year

Skin tightening procedures can help you feel more confident and take years off of your appearance.

What are the types of skin tightening procedures?

After a thorough consultation with your dermatologist, the following skin tightening treatments at Specialists in Dermatology may best match your needs:

Sculptra® Aesthetic

Sculptra Aesthetic is an injection that stimulates collagen production and increases facial volume lost during aging. You may require up to four injections scheduled several weeks apart to achieve optimal results.


InstaLift is a nonsurgical skin tightening procedure that uses skin sutures to provide fixation points for elevated skin. The sutures help stimulate collagen production and restore your face’s natural shape.


ThermiTight is a revolutionary nonsurgical skin tightening procedure. It uses an injectable radiofrequency electrode to heat skin tissue and regenerate collagen.

Intense Pulsed Light™

Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, is a nonsurgical aesthetic treatment that resurfaces your skin to tighten it, smooth it, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and make skin more evenly toned. During IPL, your doctor uses a hand piece that emits calibrated light waves into the skin to rejuvenate it.

Is skin tightening right for me?

Your dermatologist lets you know which skin tightening procedure best matches your needs. Nonsurgical procedures may be a good fit if mild or moderate skin sagging bothers you. Surgical options might work better if you desire more dramatic lifting or skin removal.

When you’re ready to achieve the tighter, youthful-looking skin you once had, call Specialists in Dermatology to schedule a consultation.
