Skin tightening is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment. It’s safe to use on any body area, including the face and neck, and produces natural, younger-looking skin. The results are immediate and can last for up to 10 years.
In general, non-surgical skin tightening procedures work by using targeted energy to heat deeper layers of skin, stimulating elastin and collagen production, gradually improving skin tone and texture.

Zeam Medical Group discusses your skin concerns to understand better what you hope for from the treatment. The team can recommend non-surgical skin tightening treatments.
There are numerous FDA-cleared skin tightening treatments and technologies on the market, and each uses a unique mechanism to achieve the desired result.
The team at Zeam Medical Group might use the following treatments and technologies:
Ultrasound skin tightening treatments are delivered via a handheld device, which transmits the ultrasound waves through the skin’s surface. Ultrasound heats skin at specific depths and locations to induce collagen production, helping the skin to become firmer.
The team may use Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening treatments to heat the skin and trigger collagen production. RF focuses on epidermal layers to achieve a smoother and firmer appearance. RF-only treatments are safe and well tolerated by most skin types.
PRX-T33 is a non-peeling peel developed as a treatment for children with scars. It’s revolutionary for correcting facelift scars, stretch marks, and sagging skin. A perfect solution for those who don’t want treatment downtime like Fibroblast skin tightening but desire similar results.
The skin tightening procedure is relatively pain-free, but your skin needs around 2-3 weeks to heal.
Try to spend the first ten days at home to protect your skin from bright daylight and to wear off any sensitivity to cold weather. While uncommon, redness, minor swelling, itching, and peeling are typical side effects as your skin heals.
