Ways To Tighten Skin
Tighten Skin Non-Surgically
Non-Surgically you can heat skin which is the most common technique, when heating skin to a particular temperature it causes the collagen fibres to shrink and therefore tighten.
We have many Skin Tightening Treatments at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics that can do this. We have listed them below, please do click on each treatment for more information:
- AccuTite, FaceTite, NeckTite & BodyTite
- CO2 Laser Resurfacing
- HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)
- Morpheus 8
- Cristal Fat Freezing (Injections)
Also included under Non-Surgical treatments, although not involving heating the skin, is a new treatment called Profhilo. This is an injectable treatment and when injected into skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin! Think of Profhilo as an internal moisturizer with stimulating properties.
Read more about Profhilo on the treatment page here.
Tighten Skin Surgically
At Zenith we offer a wide variety of surgical procedures to help reduce the looseness of skin. All surgery is performed by our highly qualified and experienced surgeons. These procedures usually include cutting away excess skin and stitching back up, to permanently remove the loose skin from that area.
The procedures which incorporate this theory include the following treatments listed below, please do click on any of these to find out more information
- Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
- Blepharoplsty (Eye Bags)
- Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
- Face Lift
- Fat Transfer
History of Skin Tightening
It was first noticed by surgeons, who worked with burns, many decades ago that those who had very mild burns often had less wrinkling of their skin as a consequence. Obviously the lack of control of the skin temperature during a burn is a big issue and results in scarring. Thus the early plastic surgeons devised methods of heating the skin to the precise temperature to get the contraction but not the scarring.
Over time the CO2 laser was developed to be able to apply this burn in a very controlled way and has been used for over 30 years. This was used to burn the epidermis (superficial layer of skin) off to a depth of 0.2-0.3mm.
It was proven that the effect of heating the skin depended on which layer of the skin was heated and to get the heat into the deep layer of skin where our collagen is, was more important than just burning the skin at surface level. It was also discovered that leaving healthy skin between treated areas meant that the treated areas healed better!
Fractional lasers were then developed that could penetrate deeper in the skin. The important difference was that they left untreated areas between columns of treatment, and consequently there was little or no scarring.

The Doctor will also be able to assess the area and make recommendations based upon your individual expectations.
What’s the difference between all the heating treatments?
The treatments differ based on machines, intensity, technique and how invasive they are.
Some heating techniques use CO2 Laser and others use Radiofrequency. Some treatments will of course be more intense or invasive than others, and then some require a course of treatments whereas others can be a one-off.
