Skin Tightening

Skin tightening can be achieved by using various energies, including lasers, ultrasound, radiofrequency, and mechanical injury -- or a combination. While some tightening may happen quickly, longer-lasting effects will develop over time with collagen reformation. 


Ultherapy® lifts, tightens, and tones loose skin to counteract the effects of time and gravity. The procedure directs sound waves deep under the skin creating heat without cutting or disrupting the surface. In addition to lifting and tightening, over the next several weeks, new collagen growth is stimulated, helping skin regain its youthful appearance ~ beautifully and naturally!

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure cleared by the FDA to lift the skin on the brow, neck, under the chin, and on the decolletage. 


​ThermiRF is the first device of its kind with precise temperature control, using radio frequency to generate heat.

The ThermiRF device is multi-functional and minimally invasive. For ThermiSmooth it can tighten skin either from the inside-out or from the outside in. Skin tightening is the primary use for ThermiRF, but it can also be used to temprarily limit muscle movement and to treat hyperhydrosis.   

ThermiVa uses ThermiRF technology for feminine rejuvenation. It's a non-hormonal procedure that helps alleviate menopausal symptoms like vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, and mild stress incontinence 

Skin Tightening with GMP

Utilizing the Gentle Max Pro, the staff at M.D. Laser Studio can reduce the laxity of skin around the knees, elbows, and abdomen. Traditionally, treating these areas has been a bit more difficult and costly, but the Gentle Max Pro makes treatments quick and easy!

To achieve tightening, most people will need between three and five treatment, allowing a few weeks in between. With topical numbing, patients will have little to no pain and may resume normal activities quickly. The amount of time each treatment takes depends on the area to be treated but is typically around 30 minutes. With each treatment, you will begin to see tighter, smoother skin in those troublesome areas.  

Silhouette InstaLift

Silhouette InstaLift is a unique dual-action treatment that produces two desirable facial outcomes: an immediate lifting of the tissue in the mid-face area and a gradual regeneration of collagen to add volume, a result that gets better over time. 

Protégé Elite

Exilis Protégé Elite is appropriate for all areas of the neck and face, as well as on the body in areas like arms and thighs. It can help reduce superficial wrinkles, improve skin laxity, and tighten and tone skin.

Protégé Elite works using radio frequency. The energy passes through the skin surface, heating deep tissue to a carefully regulated temperature. Heat from the Protégé Elite causes weak collagen to contract, firming the skin. It also stimulates the body’s natural collagen remodeling process, increasing the amount and strength of healthy collagen.
