Youthful complexions are built on the body’s abundance of key compounds such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. These substances strengthen and hydrate the skin’s structure from within, promoting an outwardly radiant, supple glow that is unmistakably healthy.
As we age, our body slowly stops generating these proteins, and the skin loses its elasticity. This gives way to sagging, lines, and volume loss. Fortunately, there’s a way to re-structure the skin and recover a vibrant, energized look.

What to Expect During the Procedure
FaceTite is a groundbreaking, minimally invasive technique for tightening the skin and restoring a fresh face along with self-confidence. During treatment, a slender cannula is inserted beneath the skin’s surface while an electrode is placed above it. A thermal current runs between the two, firming the skin while melting stubborn fat. Temperatures are meticulously controlled through constant monitoring, ensuring patient safety and comfort at all times.
Morpheus8 combines the advantages of traditional microneedling with the innovation of radiofrequency energy to powerfully and comprehensively tighten and tone the skin. With a low risk of hyperpigmentation, Morpheus8 can be used to treat a wide range of skin tones successfully. The process opens tiny channels in the skin, triggering collagen renewal at deeper, more profound levels than might occur through conventional microneedling on its own.
AccuTite uses RFAL (radiofrequency assisted lipolysis)to tighten sagging skin contours and dramatically rewind the clock on facial aging without the need for a scalpel, sutures, or downtime. AccuTite replenishes collagen production, affecting long-term rejuvenation from within while simultaneously reducing fat bulges that disrupt the profile. Built-in safeguards protect the skin from overheating and guarantee a comfortable, stress-free patient experience.
FaceTite does not require general anesthesia, so recovery is generally brief. However, patients will need a friend or family member to drive them home after their session. Common side effects include tenderness, bruising, swelling, temporary numbness, and itchiness in the treated regions, but these will typically improve tremendously by days 5 to 7. Most patients can return to their normal activities within 48 hours and resume work within about three days. The minor incisions used are inconspicuous and will heal without leaving visible scars.
Morpheus8 has little downtime, with most patients returning to work the next day. Minor redness, swelling, peeling skin, and scabbing are common after the treatment, but these side effects are short-lived. As the skin heals, it’s important to keep it protected from the sun’s harmful rays by wearing the appropriate sunscreen. You should also use a moisturizer such as Aquaphor® to soften the skin.
AccuTite is a minimally invasive treatment with little downtime. Swelling, bruising, and tenderness usually last no more than 5 to 7 days. A compression garment, as well as an ice pack, can help minimize swelling and redness. While patients will feel ready to return to work quickly, taking a week off can help your skin to heal optimally and can lock in your results.
Our minimally-invasive skin tightening devices are ideal for those seeking a safe, non-surgical method of enhancing their complexion and reducing the signs of aging. Our procedures can be performed for patients of all skin types and tones after a detailed consultation and assessment of your goals. Even those with sensitive skin can benefit from our state-of-the-art skin tightening technologies.
Good candidates for treatment are healthy (both emotionally and physically) and realistic in what they hope to achieve through their skin tightening sessions. Note that if you are pregnant, nursing, or are currently dealing with a skin infection, we may have to postpone your appointment. For those with more severe skin laxity, a surgical skin tightening solution may be the ideal approach.
Our skin tightening treatments support long-term rejuvenation by boosting your body’s ability to manufacture collagen. Therefore, you will continue to see a firmer, smoother complexion for years to come. Treatments can be repeated at regular intervals to maintain your youthful complexion over time.
