5 Best Procedures to Tighten Loose Skin Without Surgery

by | Mar 11, 2024 | Cosmetic Dermatology, Laser Treatment

Skin tightening treatments are popular cosmetic treatments designed to restore a youthful appearance to the face and body. Many non-invasive treatments are designed to reduce wrinkles and tighten loose skin without surgery. You can find different skin tightening procedures, ranging from laser treatments to radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound treatments.

Laser Skin & Surgery Center of New York offers many advanced technologies and devices to improve skin laxity and enhance the body and facial contouring. Some of our most effective procedures include:


Ultherapy is one of the most popular non-invasive treatments for sagging skin. The handheld device uses high-intensity focused ultrasound technology to heat and stimulate collagen production in the deepest dermis layer of skin, resulting in tighter, more youthful-looking skin. This procedure is typically done in a single treatment session, with no downtime and minimal side effects.

Patients can see changes within several weeks of the initial treatment and more visible results within 2-3 months as collagen production increases. It effectively reduces wrinkles and tightens sagging skin, making it an excellent choice for those who want to improve their skin without surgery. It can be used in the following areas:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Jowls
  • Chin
  • Chest


Sofwave is a skin tightening treatment that uses Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Array technology to heat the mid-dermis at the optimal depth while bypassing the outer layer of skin. The sound waves transform into heat and stimulate the body’s natural healing response to increase collagen production and tighten loose skin.

The advanced device uses a cooling system to cool the outer skin as the dermis is heated, preventing damage to the skin. The procedure takes approximately 45-60 minutes, and patients can see complete results within 12 weeks as collagen production increases over time. Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Array technology is precise, allowing the epidermis to remain unharmed so that patients may immediately return to daily activities without signs of a cosmetic procedure.


Fraxel Re:pair is an FDA-approved CO2 laser that works on a cellular level. The laser creates tiny wounds in the dermis at precise depths to treat various skin concerns, including sagging skin. The micro-channels stimulate collagen production and cell renewal to tighten loose skin and smooth lines and wrinkles.

Many patients have significant results with one treatment, but multiple sessions can be scheduled for optimal results. Results may vary, but many patients see results within 3-14 days once the skin is healed.


Another option for skin tightening is ThermiRF, an advanced technology that uses radiofrequency energy to heat and tighten the skin. This minimally-invasive treatment works by inserting a small RF probe under the skin to deliver precise heat energy. The even heat stimulates collagen production and creates tighter skin and a more youthful appearance.

ThermiRF may require multiple treatments to achieve desired results, but some may see significant improvement after 6-8 weeks of the initial treatment. The procedure is also associated with minimal side effects and downtime, making it an excellent choice for those looking for a safe and effective treatment for their skin. It can be used to smooth wrinkles and lift sagging skin in the following areas:

  • Face
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks


Genius is another skin-tightening treatment that uses a combination of radiofrequency and microneedling to address sagging skin. The RF energy penetrates deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and initiating the body’s natural healing response. In addition, the treatment helps to improve skin tone and texture, making it a preferred choice for those looking to achieve dramatic results.
