Skin Tightening

One of the most exciting developments in the aesthetics field during the past 10 to 15 years is the emergence of advanced technology that makes it possible to have firmer, smoother skin without surgery. We offer multiple nonsurgical skin tightening treatments for Boston-area patients who come to Coastal Plastic Surgery.

Exciting Possibilities

As skin loses its elasticity, sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles develop, adding years to your appearance. Women and men concerned about signs of aging can get excellent results without surgery from skin tightening treatments. These treatments are often the ideal solutions for patients of all ages who want tighter, smoother skin.

Advanced Techniques & Options

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for skin laxity. That’s why we offer a range of nonsurgical treatment options for skin tightening patients who aren’t ready for facial plastic surgery. Even though these procedures use different approaches, they are all very effective when performed by a qualified provider.

Our nonsurgical skin tightening treatments include:

RF Microneedling

This procedure has become one of the most popular among patients at our Boston-area practices. The treatment involves using a pen-sized device to create microchannels in the skin’s surface. We are able to adjust the depth of the microchannels, allowing us to treat the surface of the skin and the deeper layers. Using radiofrequency (RF) to penetrate the deeper layers of tissue, RF microneedling stimulates the body’s natural healing process. These tiny wounds stimulate the production of new collagen as the skin heals. In addition, applying serums to the skin after an RF microneedling treatment jump-starts the production of collagen. Besides tightening the skin, RF microneedling can also be used to minimize the appearance of some acne scars.

Ultherapy harnesses ultrasound technology’s power and targets the deeper layers of skin to lift and tighten treatment areas. The ultrasonic energy heats these deeper layers of skin to stimulate collagen growth from the inside out. Ultherapy is especially effective for patients with mild signs of aging who will see a noticeable improvement in their skin’s appearance after 1 or 2 treatments.

We use Ultherapy to:

  • Lift sagging cheeks
  • Tighten lax neck skin
  • Smooth wrinkles around the nose, mouth, and jaw
  • Improve the skin’s texture

Even though it’s primarily used for facial skin tightening, Ultherapy can also be used on other areas of the body, including the upper arms and the buttocks.


Using advanced radiofrequency energy, Pellevé precisely targets tissue below the skin’s surface. It’s our go-to treatment for delicate areas, such as under the eyes, crow’s feet, and smile lines. It’s gentler than Ulthera and usually requires 3 to 5 treatments to produce the desired results. Treatments are typically scheduled about a month apart. In some cases, patients undergo Ultherapy first and then schedule Pellevé treatments to further enhance the results.

After the initial series of Pellevé treatments, we recommend returning twice a year to maintain the results.

Our patients may consider other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as laser skin tightening or chemical peels, to improve the skin’s texture and minimize wrinkles.
