Best Skin Tightening Procedures: Mechanical Modalities


Microneedling uses a process that creates microscopic injuries to the skin with hypodermic needles. In turn, this activates the body’s healing response. As a result, it sends a signal to increase collagen and elastin production.

Moreover, the tiny channels created serve to better absorb serums and creams more effectively. A microneedling treatment as one of the best skin tightening procedures offered at NLI will leave you with more toned and tighter skin. Try Microneedling with PRP for more dramatic results.

Best Skin Tightening Procedures: Injections

PDO Threads

PDO, polydioxanone, threads lift sagging skin and contours hollows in the face. Firstly, the process involves using hypodermic needles with the synthetic sutures, PDO. Then, they are positioned into the loose skin to provide a lifting effect. The injection site will trigger an increase in collagen production. Overall, this leaves you with long-lasting results even after the suture is absorbed.


Kybella injections use a naturally occurring substance in the body called deoxycholic acid. Moreover, this particular substance works by absorbing fat. As a result, Kybella injections will remove fat from particular areas of the body. In addition, it will tighten those areas as well.


Botox injections work by interfering with the nerves of muscles. Moreover, it causes the signals from the nerves of muscles to not respond to contraction. As a result, this gives you a tighter, smoother appearance. In addition, the process tightens up fine lines and wrinkles, effectively reducing their appearance. Botox is not just for women, many men get Botox treatments too!

VelaShape is a body contouring treatment that tightens and tones your skin. Moreover, it uses infrared rays to target fat cells within the skin. In addition, this treatment stimulates collagen for long-lasting effects.

1540 Fractional Laser

A 1540 Fractional Laser treatment uses resurfacing technology to target areas deep within the skin. Then, the resurfacing technology creates microscopic columns within the skin. As a result, collagen and elastin production is stimulated due to the body’s healing response. Overall, this process tightens the skin. In addition, the 1540 Fractional Laser has an advanced cooling system that protects the outer layers of your skin.

Profractional Laser

A Profractional Laser treatment uses an ablative laser. In addition, it creates microscopic channels within the skin to increase collagen and elastin production. As a result, your skin will appear rejuvenated and have a tighter appearance. In addition, it will smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.

IPL Photofacial

Photofacials use intense pulsed light to target deep into the layers of your skin. Moreover, this light energy penetrates into your skin without harming the surface layers. Then, light energy is converted into heat which provides a deep, cleaning exfoliation. As a result, your skin will appear brighter and tighter.

Why does Skin Become Loose?

Smoking: Smoking can lead to premature aging. This is evident in the decrease in collagen and elastin production. In addition, smoking exposes your cells to nicotine. The skin is affected by having less oxygen and healthy nutrients to develop.

Weight loss: Weight loss is another example of why people develop loose skin. For example a period of sudden weight loss can occur post-pregnancy or after surgery. The skin doesn’t have time to catch up to the weight loss and reshape.

Sun exposure: Sun exposure is another factor in developing loose skin. For example, when sunlight hits our skin, it damages the DNA. As a result, the DNA mutates when trying to build normal building blocks of skin cells. In addition, the skin cells can die prematurely from sun exposure.

Aging: Aging is the number one factor in developing loose skin. As we age, our skin’s collagen and elastin levels naturally decrease. Without these two factors running at a higher output, skin becomes looser.
