Skin tightening is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that is one of the fastest growing treatment categories in Canada and the United States.
Skin Tightening Treatment

Fortunately, Sovereign Skin offers a variety of non-surgical ways to restore and tighten sagging skin. These treatments can offer improvement for skin laxity and have a simple, easy recovery.
Limitations of Skin Tightening Toronto
The amount of skin tightening that can be achieved non-surgically is limited and patients need to be properly informed in order to make a quality decision and manage their expectations appropriately. Sometimes the best option is simply surgery, such as a facelift or necklift. However, here at Sovereign Skin, we aim to be honest and realistic about what our skin devices can and can not do for you!
Multiple treatments may be required in order to achieve your desired results, also non-surgical treatments do need to be repeated periodically to maintain the skin tightening Toronto result.
Best Skin Tightening Candidates:
The best skin tightening candidates are generally patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity concerns. Patients who require a more dramatic skin tightening Toronto combined with skin removal would need plastic surgery. While the side effects associated with non-surgical skin tightening are very few and far between, some of these procedures are not suitable for pregnant women, people taking certain types of medications or who have pre-existing medical conditions.

Laser Skin Tightening
Laser Skin tightening is a minimally invasive, anti-aging procedure for patients considering how they can reduce the appearance of wrinkles on their face, body or neck and tighten sagging and loose skin. Within 1-4 treatments, most patients will have tighter, healthier, and smoother skin that looks years younger! Another benefit is most laser skin tightening treatments take less than an hour to complete.
The process works with a laser technician or laser nurse guiding the laser beam across the area to be tightened. The infrared light source heats collagen under the skin’s surface, causing a tightening effect. The effects of the laser skin tightening treatment may not be as dramatic as a facial plastic surgery procedure (like a facelift or neck lift), however, patients do enjoy the laser tightening results with minimal downtime.
One of the more well-known laser skin tightening treatments has been branded as Tight Sculpting in the United States and Hot Sculpting in Canada. It is part of the Fotona laser technology and is designed to target unwanted pockets of fat by accelerating cell metabolism while simultaneously addressing skin laxity! The benefits include smoothing, lifting and tightening the skin, increasing elasticity and suppleness, reducing and re-sculpting fat deposits and even improving the appearance of cellulite.
There are minimal side effects and basically no downtime following treatment. TightSculpting (also known as Hot Sculpting) is suitable for most areas on the body and does not involve needles or anaesthetic. It’s a fantastic alternative to laser lipolysis and has emerged as an effective skin tightening option due to its versatility and comfort.
Ultherapy is unique in the industry as it uses ultrasound waves to rejuvenate sagginess of facial skin and help people regain skin firmness and elasticity. A medical aesthetician or nurse will use a special hand device to treat the skin. The patterns and wavelengths are controlled and precise which also means the treatment is very safe with low complications or risks involved. The ultrasound waves penetrate to the deepest skin layer- classically only accessed and tightened during a surgical facelift! Ultherapy will tighten to underlying tissues and stimulate the growth of new collagen. An immediate tightening effect will be seen post-treatment, but the fullness of the treatment will emerge in 3 months after the collagen has developed.
The down time following an ulthera treatment is very minimal. Patients can experience redness or swelling, but usually find they can return to their usual activities immediately post-Ultherapy
If you are looking for mild skin tightening benefits, our microneedling system with the V2 Beauty booster may be an excellent option for you. This microneedling treatment stimulates the production of collagen resulting in skin tightening. With the added bonus of Redensity I, skin will appear more radiant and smoother with a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, improved texture and of course, tighter skin overall. We explain here why microneedling is such a popular skin care trend right now.
Radiofrequency energy can also be used for skin tightening. It works by heating the desired area, thus triggering collagen production. Radiofrequency treatments focus on different epidermal layers than Ultherapy in order to achieve a firm result. This type of skin tightening can be done on the face, neck, hands, and body. The in-office treatments are quick, with little discomfort and require no downtime. One of the great benefits of RF skin tightening is that t is safe and suitable for all skin types. Some radiofrequency treatments combine IPL laser technology to heat the deep layers of the skin as well. This enables treatment of multiple layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and helping to create an even more effective and power skin tightening treatment option. Some radiofrequency (RF) treatments will require a series of treatments for optimal results.
