Skin Tightening is unlike other skin treatments. This treatment can treat all areas of the body effectively with no downtime and is safe for all skin types. If you have loose or sagging skin and want to reverse the signs of gravity taking hold, this is the treatment for you.
Skin Tightening is the tightening of the skin, on the face, neck, or body using heat. It is one of the most effective ways to tighten skin that has lost its collagen or elasticity over the years. After the age of 30, our bodies begin to slow their production of collagen and elastin, which are the two proteins needed to help our skin stay firm and toned. Your treatment targets the layers of the skin to stimulate the production of these two proteins, improving both texture and tone.
At Elite Medical Skin and Laser Center, our safe, non-surgical skin tightening treatments will help you look and feel your best without the added cost and risk of going under the knife.
The three types of Skin Tightening Therapy we use are:
- Viora Radio Frequency
- 1064 ND Yag Laser Diode
- 810 NIR (near-infrared)
What’s great about having different methods of therapy to choose from is that we can switch it up and make sure your skin is responding to what we are doing. We can maximize the best results possible by approaching this treatment with different types of energy. This helps us ensure you get results you can see on any body part.
What is Skin Tightening?
This treatment utilizes advanced near-infrared technology, radiofrequency, or laser energy to penetrate the dermal layer of your skin. There are three layers to our skin:
- Outer superficial layer – Epidermis
- Middle layer – Dermis
- Inner layer – Hypodermis.
This treatment heats the collagen within the middle layer of the skin without compromising the health or safety of the skin’s surface. It delivers energy in rapid, gentle pulses that contract the skin’s collagen to retighten areas that have lost their elasticity. The processes initiate the body’s natural healing response, leading to increased skin firmness in treated areas.
During the treatment, one of our treatment providers will hold a handpiece with a smooth, flat surface against your skin. The laser technology will heat the layers of your skin with little to no pain. We tailor each treatment to each client’s preferences, depending on the condition you wish to address.

Slight redness or temporary swelling is sometimes observed after skin tightening but usually subsides quickly. These side effects should be gone within 24 hours. This treatment requires no downtime, and clients can return to normal activities immediately. We will inform you during your initial consultation about what to expect during this treatment.
How many sessions will I need?
Skin tightening results may not be fully visible until 2-6 months after treatment. It may take some time for the collagen of the treated areas to tighten and improve the skin. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the best results, and this also depends on age and skin condition. During your consultation, we will discuss treatment options with you to produce the best results.
