Skin Tightening


Ageing, hormonal changes, exposure to the sun, and lifestyle factors all reduce dermal fibre elasticity. This reduced elasticity decreases tissue tone resulting in jowls, wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. If you’re frustrated by sagging or finely wrinkled skin then you may want to understand how Elite Medspa’s skin tightening treatments can work for you.

Our in-office skin tightening treatments are done in several ways to stimulate collagen production, which helps to tighten and tone loose skin.

Skin tightening is done using a variety of techniques, like using ultrasound (Ulthera), radiofrequency/magnetic muscle stimulation (Emsulpt), and Infrared light (SkinTyte). It is a cosmetic, non-surgical procedure to alter the body’s appearance. Its goal is to improve the skin’s overall tone and texture.

It is an incredibly effective method to improve the skin’s elasticity without requiring surgery. Skin tightening treatments act to repair the skin and generate collagen production, thereby either filling in or tightening areas of the skin. Treatments are done in six to eight sessions, once weekly.

How Skin Tightening Works at Elite Medical Spa in Oakville

Our skin tightening treatments work by heating the deeper layers of the skin using targeted energy. This procedure stimulates collagen production resulting in firmer skin. It is less invasive when compared to surgery like tummy tucks or facelifts.

Multiple methods are involved when tightening the skin, including:


Ultrasound energy is used to heat tissue located in the deeper layers of the skin. It stimulates new elastin and collagen production. Multiple treatments will improve the appearance of sagging skin.

Emsulpt NEO

This method combines radiofrequency treatments and magnetic, energy-focused muscle stimulation. It acts to tighten loose skin, burn fat, and build muscle for tauter skin tones.


SkinTyte uses infrared light sending heat deep into the skin. It continuously cools the treated surface, providing comfort and added safety. Light energy is delivered in gentle, rapid pulses generating a contraction in the collagen/elastin fibres.

Over the long term, it stimulates the body’s natural healing method, improves firmness, and produces new collagen.

Other Methods

Beyond energy-based methods, there are bio-stimulatory fillers, Sculptra and Radiesse. These are injected into a treatment area to add volume and increase collagen production instantly.

With these injections, the body produces more collagen, and the area will appear firmer with less notable laxity.

What areas can skin tightening treat?

Skin tightening is for anyone who desires younger, tighter skin without undergoing surgery. Treatments assist people in counteracting the ageing process. The benefits of skin tightening are:

  • Skin Tone: By stimulating elastin and collagen production, skin tone becomes firmer, improving its texture. People become more youthful and vibrant in their appearance.
  • Wrinkles: Skin tightening procedures tighten the skin by heating collagen beneath your skin’s surface. It is effective in reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and skin laxity.
  • Stretch Marks: Removing stretch marks involves building newer collagen into your skin to replace what was lost. Treatments are designed to fill the skin, bringing what was previously stretched together.
  • Sagging Skin: Radiofrequency treatments are designed to create magnetic muscle stimulation. In addition to its tightening effects, it can burn fat and increase muscle. This makes sagging skin appear firmer, tighter, and less “crepey.”

Benefits of Skin Tightening

The added benefit to skin tightening procedures is that there are fewer risks for complications, it’s more affordable and safe, it provides long-lasting results, and the recovery is more effortless.

Effective Treatment

Treatments provide a total solution for those desiring younger, tighter skin without surgery. Clients can reverse/eliminate signs of ageing like folds, sagging skin, wrinkles, and creases using non-invasive methods. Furthermore, ageing is not always a factor in skin sagging or stretch marks.

Weight loss can generate unsightly sagging skin in addition to stretch marks. Stretch marks can also be prevalent during pregnancy. While skin tightening treatments may not eliminate stretch marks, they can help them fade.

Skin tightening treatments address this issue by causing collagen to begin reproduction, filling the skin. Some clients report an immediate difference with visible results, while others require additional time and treatments to see a change.

No More Sagging Skin/Prevents Wrinkles

The treatment removes damaged fibres and skin cells. Then, it stimulates healthy collagen fibre production beneath the skin’s surface. This process fills in sagging, lax, or wrinkled skin. It provides for a more youthful appearance.

Improved Self-Confidence

By removing wrinkles, sagging skin, or stretch marks, clients feel more self-confident. Their skin is rejuvenated, and they no longer have to contend with the unsightly results of ageing or weight loss.

Minimal Discomfort

Since the procedure is non-surgical and less invasive, there is less discomfort. Treatments do not generate visible irritation and are painless. An additional benefit is that treatments require no downtime.

Given this list of variables, in-office skin tightening treatments are ideal for tightening and rejuvenating your skin. There will be no visible marking or irritation to contend with. There is no muscle freezing, and treatments are affordable and long-lasting.
