If you would like to tighten sagging skin, but you’re not yet ready for surgery, you are probably interested in learning about the best non-surgical treatments for skin tightening.
Here at Best Self Medical Arts, we use the highly effective SkinTyte and ProFractional laser therapy treatments for skin tightening.
Skin laxity typically occurs due to a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen is an essential protein that helps the skin maintain its firm, youthful appearance, and elastin is responsible for keeping it strong and elastic. The production of these proteins declines over time, and as the skin loses this structural support it starts to sag, causing wrinkles and fine lines to develop.
SkinTyte and ProFractional laser therapy are two of the best treatments for skin tightening because they improve the production of collagen and elastin.
SkinTyte is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment that tightens the skin using infrared light technology. The infrared light penetrates the deep layers of the skin where it stimulates collagen and rebuilds the elastin fibers. SkinTyte is a completely non-surgical treatment that requires no anesthetic, no incisions, and no downtime.
How SkinTyte tightens the skin
The targeted infrared energy penetrates deep into the dermal matrix of the skin, where it heats up the collagen fibers. This causes the existing fibers to contract and promotes the formation of new collagen and elastin. The remodeled collagen and elastin increase the tightness of the skin.
SkinTyte is a comfortable technology that is equipped with a sapphire contact cooling system, which keeps the outer surface of the skin cool during treatment.
What results can I expect
There will be some improvement in the firmness and smoothness of the skin immediately after treatment. However, optimal results will be achieved over the following 2-3 months, as new collagen and elastin develop.

ProFractional Laser Therapy
ProFractional lasers use fractional laser technology to tighten the skin and address a variety of skin concerns. ProFractional laser therapy can be used to safely tone and tighten loose skin almost anywhere on the body including the face, neck, abdomen, and arms.
How ProFractional Laser therapy tightens the skin
ProFractional lasers create microscopic channels in the outer layer of the skin, so only a portion of the skin is treated at a time. The healthy tissue that surrounds the treated areas accelerates healing. The laser energy stimulates the skin’s natural repair process and leads to an increase in the growth of collagen, which makes the skin tighter and more resilient.
What results can I expect
The skin will look tighter and more youthful within 3-7 days of treatment. However, skin tightening effects will continue for up to 6 months, as new collagen is produced.
