What is Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening is an advanced rejuvenation technique that can eliminate wrinkles and sagging skin. Loose skin is an inevitable effect of aging, and one that can be accelerated by pregnancy, weight loss, and other factors. Unfortunately, this can cause men and women to look older than they actually are, motivating them to seek a treatment solution. NUSCULPT offers a few non-surgical skin tightening treatments to help patients achieve a refreshed, youthful appearance without scarring and extended periods of downtime.
Are There Loose Body Skin Tightening Treatments Available?
If you have loose body skin that you would like to eliminate, we may recommend Thermage® body contouring. Thermage® is a non-invasive treatment that uses only radiofrequency energy to produce incredible rejuvenation results. This treatment stimulates collagen production to create impressive results that last for years, often improving over time.
Are There Loose Facial Skin Tightening Treatments Available?
Many patients are concerned about loose facial skin, and NUSCULPT has treatment options to satisfy each patient’s unique cosmetic goals. The popular Thermage® treatment can also be used for great facial contouring results, tightening the skin in just one treatment. We often recommend this treatment to patients looking for a non-invasive treatment and subtle, natural results. For patients looking for more dramatic improvements and a lifting effect in the face, we may recommend thread lifts. Thread lifts are commonly referred to as the non-surgical facelift, offering comparable results without all the fuss of surgery. Thread lifts use dissolvable sutures to lift the skin, creating immediate results. As these sutures are absorbed by the body in the months following treatment, collagen production is stimulated to produce continued, lasting results.
How are Skin Tightening Treatments Performed?
Your skin tightening treatment experience will depend on the skin tightening technique used, as well as the desired treatment area. Both the Thermage® and thread lift skin tightening treatments are only mildly painful. We do our best to maintain patient comfort both before and throughout the entire procedure.

How is Recovery After Skin Tightening Procedures?
At NUSCULPT, our skin tightening procedures offer minimal downtime, and patients are typically able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after their treatment. Many patients opt for our non-surgical skin tightening solutions over surgery and other invasive options because they are quick procedures that do not restrict their lifestyle.
When Will I Notice Results from Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening results with the thread lifts treatment are immediate, and patients will notice significant improvements before leaving their appointment. With both Thermage® body contouring and thread lifts treatments, patients will achieve gradual improvements in the tightness of their skin as collagen production increases in the body. Most patients notice these improvements within a few weeks of treatment, with significant results developing approximately three months after treatment.
How Much Does Skin Tightening Cost?
The cost of your skin tightening treatment will depend on the technique used and the areas being treated. When you come in for your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan that includes the exact cost of your treatment. As a cosmetic procedure, skin tightening is not covered by insurance providers. In order to keep this and other treatments affordable to our patients, we offer financing through CareCredit® and accept all major credit cards.
