Skin Tightening Q&A

Why is my skin loose and sagging?

Skin that appears or feels loose or sagging is largely due to collagen loss. During your youth, you have a thick layer of collagen beneath the surface of your skin that softens and rounds your facial contouring. 

As the years pass, you lose much of that padding, leaving your skin to sag and pool into wrinkles, lines, and folds. Without stimulation, your body will not produce new collagen on its own. 

As this process moves forward, your skin also begins to show the effects of years of sun damage and exposure to environmental toxins. Many men and women become dissatisfied with the appearance of their skin as these changes take effect. 

What treatments can help with skin tightening?

There are several ways to address loose and sagging skin. Dr. Moradzadeh evaluates your skin and discusses your treatment goals before discussing your treatment options in detail. He may recommend: 


Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared treatment for lifting skin on your face, chin, neck, and chest. The treatment platform uses ultrasound technology to stimulate new collagen production. 


AccuTite is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to liquify fat cells and tighten your skin. If a significant amount of fat is treated, a portion can be aspirated through a needle to speed the healing process. 


FaceTite is a minimally invasive contouring system that allows precise tissue contouring as well as skin contraction to visibly tighten your skin. This is often called the next best thing to a surgical facelift. 


Microneedling with the Eclipse MicroPenⓇ yields improvements in the texture, tone, and tightness of your skin. Sessions create thousands of tiny channels into your skin, prompting new collagen production. You can incorporate platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to boost healing. 

Is skin tightening painful?

There is no significant discomfort associated with these skin tightening treatments. If you have sensitive skin, you can ask for numbing cream. Applying this medicated cream to your skin in the hour prior to your appointment can reduce sensations in the treatment area.
