Non-Surgical Skin Tightening And Lifting

Loose and saggy skin, loss of skin tone, and wrinkles are something that plague most people as they age

In the search for an effective treatment, lots of people consider surgical options as a fix. Facelifts, eye lifts, and brow lifts work extremely well, but oftentimes, people are hesitant to get them. There are several reasons why surgical treatments may not be right for every single patient, and we’ll briefly discuss those reasons before moving on to non-surgical skin-tightening and -lifting treatments that can provide effective and long-lasting rejuvenation to leave you not only looking wonderful, but feeling confident.

Want to look younger and refreshed but do not currently need to have a surgical procedure like a facelift?

When Surgery Isn’t An Option

Sometimes individuals have only minor loosening of the skin. They may have pesky fine lines and wrinkles they’d like to get rid of, as well—lines that would benefit from an overall plumping and tightening, but are in areas that would not be greatly affected by a facelift. They may wish to look younger and refreshed but do not currently need to have a surgical procedure like a facelift. In addition to cost, recovery time is often a consideration. It can take up to 2 weeks for the swelling and bruising to subside after a facelift, while nonsurgical options can range from zero downtime to only a couple of days.

What Options Are There That Don’t Involve Surgery?

Just like surgical anti-aging treatments, there are different non-surgical treatments available. Which treatment you choose will depend on the condition of your skin and how much time you have to recover afterwards. Ultherapy and CO2 treatment are the most popular non-surgical options for skin tightening and lifting. Let’s discuss what they are and how they work.


As a non-surgical skin treatment with virtually no recovery time, Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to improve the look of your skin on your neck area, under your chin, and near your eyebrows. It’s been approved by Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in those areas as well as on the chest and décolletage. It lifts and tightens, providing visible results that will leave people wondering whether you just came back from a restful vacation.

Utherapy is suitable for all skin types with minimal discomfort

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Ultherapy targets its ultrasound energy a few layers beneath the skin’s outer surface. It generates a stimulating energy that directs your skin to start producing collagen. This helps your skin look tighter, lifted, and much fuller. Some patients see results directly after receiving an Ultherapy treatment, but it continues to stimulate collagen for 2 to 3 months, so it will take that long to see the full extent of the benefits.

The best thing about Ultherapy when compared to other treatments is that there is no recovery time. Patients receiving treatment can go directly back to their usual activity. A bit of swelling may occur, but there are typically no effects that require any amount of downtime.

CO2 Laser Treatment

For a more extensive non-surgical tightening treatment, CO2 laser therapy is another option. CO2 lasers, also known as carbon dioxide lasers, send pulses of energy into your skin, destroying the top layer of tissue. When that tissue sheds, it takes damaged areas with it. Wrinkles, fine lines, superficial scars, large pores, and uneven areas of skin disappear.

CO2 laser treatment does require a few days’ recovery time though, as it causes the treated areas to become pink, tender, and rather swollen. Applying cold packs following the detailed care instructions provided will treat swelling and reduce any resulting pain.
