Skin tightening: what it is and what treatment options are available 

What is a skin tightening procedure?

Skin tightening is a cosmetic procedure aimed at firming and tightening sagging or loose skin on various areas of the body. There are several types of skin tightening treatments available, including non-invasive methods such as radiofrequency, ultrasound, and laser therapy, as well as surgical procedures such as a facelift or body lift. The choice of treatment depends on the amount and type of skin laxity, individual preferences, and desired results. The goal of skin tightening treatments is to restore a more youthful and toned appearance to the skin.

If you’re looking for a non-invasive way to tighten and lift your skin, you may have heard about Ultherapy, Thermage, Secret Pro, and microneedling with RF. These treatments are all designed to rejuvenate the skin and give it a more youthful appearance. But what sets them apart from each other, and which one is the best choice for you?


Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin, targeting the deeper layers of tissue without damaging the surface of the skin. It is often used to treat sagging skin on the face, neck, and décolletage, and can also be used to tighten the skin on the upper arms, thighs, and stomach. One of the benefits of Ultherapy is that it can be customized to your specific needs and concerns, making it a versatile treatment option. Click here to view more details on Ultherapy.


Thermage is another popular skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep layers of the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. It is often used to treat sagging skin on the face, neck, and body, and can also be used to smooth out wrinkles and improve the appearance of cellulite. More info on Thermal can be found here.


Microneedling with RF is a newer treatment that combines the benefits of microneedling with the added boost of radiofrequency energy. Microneedling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, while the RF energy helps to tighten and lift the skin. This treatment can be used on the face, neck, and body, and is often used to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone. Click here for more on Microneedling with RF.


The Secret Pro by Cutera is a device that uses a combination of microneedling and RF energy to tighten and lift the skin. It is a newer treatment option that is gaining popularity due to its effectiveness and minimal downtime. Learn more about the Secret Pro here.
