Skin Tightening Q & A

What is nonsurgical skin tightening?

Most nonsurgical skin tightening treatments use heat and energy to penetrate the deepest layers of your skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Over time, these noninvasive treatments tighten, tone, and lift wrinkled or saggy skin without surgery or injections. 

From reduced wrinkles to decreased cellulite, skin-tightening treatments can help you achieve a more youthful appearance.

What can nonsurgical skin tightening treat?

Skin-tightening treatments help treat loose skin and wrinkles on the:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Eyelids
  • Jowls
  • Chest
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Knees

These treatments also minimize the appearance of cellulite on the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.

Which skin-tightening treatments are available?

Balboa Medical Center & Spa offers a variety of skin-tightening treatments at their office, including:

Fractional laser therapy

In addition to tightening and firming the skin, fractional lasers break down pigments to give you smoother, clearer skin. They help treat fine lines and wrinkles, spider veins, stretch marks, sun damage, age spots, uneven skin tone, redness, and more.

Radiofrequency microneedling

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment in which your provider at Balboa Medical Center & Spa punctures your skin with tiny needles to trigger your body’s natural healing response, boosting collagen and elastin production.

Balboa Medical Center & Spa combines microneedling with radiofrequency therapy — a noninvasive treatment that heats up the deepest layers of your skin to create a tightening and firming effective — to maximize your results.

Stem cell and PRP therapy

Your body naturally contains platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that has natural growth factors to tighten and lift the skin. During the treatment, your provider at Balboa Medical Center & Spa draws blood from your arm and runs it through a centrifuge to isolate the PRP. He then injects it into your neck or face. 

Stem cell therapy is a similar process, except Balboa Medical Center & Spa uses stem cells rather than PRP.


J-Plasma® is a body-contouring treatment that uses plasma energy to tighten skin without large incisions or invasive surgical procedures.

Who is a good candidate for nonsurgical skin tightening?

Nonsurgical skin tightening works best on those with mild to moderate skin laxity, or loose skin. It’s typically the first skin-tightening treatment people try when they aren’t quite ready for Botox®, dermal fillers, or cosmetic surgery. 

You may be a good candidate for nonsurgical skin tightening if you:

  • Aren’t pregnant
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Don’t take blood thinners
  • Are in good health
  • Don’t have blood-clotting problems
