Skin Tightening Q&A

What does skin tightening treat?

As we age, the natural process of collagen loss becomes increasingly apparent, contributing to changes in skin elasticity and firmness. Collagen, a key structural protein, provides support to the skin, keeping it plump and resilient. Over time, factors such as sun exposure, genetics, and lifestyle choices lead to a decline in collagen production. This reduction results in sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. At Z Dermatology & Skin Wellness Center, we understand the importance of addressing collagen loss. Our skin tightening procedures utilize cutting-edge technologies to stimulate collagen production, promoting skin rejuvenation and restoring a more youthful appearance. Experience the transformative effects of our advanced treatments that aim to tighten and lift the skin, enhancing its natural vitality.

Skin tightening procedures minimize skin characteristics, such as the following:

  • Skin laxity
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Smile lines
  • Submental fat
  • Jowls
  • Neck lines
  • Sagging brow
  • Certain acne scars

Wrinkles and sagging skin can develop over your face and body. You and your dermatologist decide which areas to treat with skin tightening procedures and how many sessions you’ll need for optimal results. 

How does skin tightening work?

Modern skin tightening procedures offer many benefits. With so many options, you can find a procedure that aligns with your goals and works well for your skin type. 

Z-Dermatology & Skin Wellness Center provides the following noninvasive skin tightening procedures:


Sofwave is a skin tightening procedure for the face, neck, and brow. It uses ultrasound technology to treat wrinkles from the mid-dermis and upward. It also features a cooling mechanism called Sofcool™ to prevent discomfort and burning. Sofwave is safe for all skin types. 

Radiofrequency (RF microneedling)

Radiofrequency microneedling procedures puncture your skin with shallow needles while administering radiofrequency energy simultaneously. Together, microneedling and radiofrequency stimulate collagen and elastin development deep within your skin. Z-Dermatology & Skin Wellness Center offers RF microneedling with Agnes RF and Secret™ RF.

The team helps you compare procedures to choose the best fit. 

How can I maintain the results of a skin tightening procedure?

Your skin continues to age after skin tightening procedures. However, there are ways to slow your skin’s aging process to extend your results. To minimize the development of skin laxity and wrinkles after skin tightening, the Z-Dermatology & Skin Wellness Center team encourages you to:

  • Stop smoking
  • Reduce alcohol consumption
  • Protect your skin from the sun
  • Avoid tanning beds and other artificial ultraviolet light sources
  • Eat a nutritious diet
  • Exercise most days
  • Apply a daily moisturizer
