Non-Surgical Laser Skin Tightening Procedures

For those looking to treat sagging skin without surgery, professional skin tightening treatments are available at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, an aesthetic medical clinic headed by respected plastic surgeon Dr. Olga Bachilo.

While many treatments are often referred to as “laser” skin tightening procedures, they do not in fact use lasers for this purpose. Non-invasive technologies such as radio frequency, ultrasound and a combination of IPL with radio frequency are often used to achieve skin rejuvenation with excellent results.

Different treatments are recommended for different areas, such as the face and neck. Even the stomach area may be treated by means of a non surgical tummy tuck procedure that tightens the skin of the abdominal region.


Ultrasound Skin Tightening

What Is Ultrasound Skin Tightening?

Ultrasound skin tightening treatments use gentle ultrasound technology to achieve skin tightening and rejuvenation, particularly in the areas of the upper face, neck, and decolletage region. Ultrasound technology has been used safely in medical procedures for several decades and has been shown to be highly effective in triggering production of collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of skin, effectively producing tighter and firmer skin.

How Does Ultrasound Tighten Skin?

Ultrasound therapy is most effective in treating moderately lax skin that is showing early signs of aging. The treatment tightens sagging skin by delivering focused ultrasound energy to tissue below the skin’s surface, stimulating new collagen production. You will see some improvement after the initial treatment, but the skin will continue to improve over time as new collagen is produced, gradually tightening the skin.

How Safe and Effective Is It?

Ultrasound technology has been used safely in the medical field for decades. While a single treatment session may produce fabulous results, follow-up sessions may be recommended to further tighten lax skin. The ongoing increase in collagen production ensures continued improvements for several months following the procedure. Results may last up to a year when performed by a qualified medical professional.

RF Resurfacing

Non-Invasive Nanofractional RF Skin Tightening Treatments

What Is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?

RF skin tightening works by delivering radio frequency (RF) energy to subdermal tissue, stimulating production of collagen and elastin, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and achieving firmer, tighter skin.

RF differs from laser treatments because RF technology delivers heat through an electrical current rather than a laser light beam, minimizing damage to surface skin tissue. RF treatments are safe and effective for patients of all skin tones.

Does RF Skin Tightening Work?

RF skin tightening treatments work well because they deliver thermal energy to subdermal layers of tissue, stimulating collagen production from deep within.

RF treatments provide an effective, non surgical anti-aging solution that is safe and effective without the need for surgery or downtime.

How Long Do Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Results Last?

A typical RF treatment session may last between 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated. Dr. Bachilo will recommend a treatment plan that may include 6-10 treatment sessions spaced about 4 weeks apart. Once you achieve your treatment goal, follow-up sessions will be required once or twice yearly to maintain optimal results.

What are the Dangers of Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?

The FDA has approved Radiofrequency skin tightening treatments as safe and effective solutions for use anywhere on the body, including the face and neck, tummy, arms and legs, and even for vaginal rejuvenation.

In order to ensure the safest possible results, it’s best to choose an experienced medical professional, such as Dr. Bachilo, with expertise in the safest and most effective treatments cleared by the FDA.

Venus Viva

This treatment, performed using the Venus Viva™ system, uses state of the art radio frequency technology to gently remove the skin’s outermost layer and thus diminish the appearance of any imperfections or marks on that layer of skin. RF Skin Resurfacing also triggers collagen production, so you’ll continue to see gradual improvement in your skin’s overall firmness and smoothness during the weeks following your treatment.

Venus Legacy

Venus Legacy™ uses a combination of multi-polar radio frequency and pulsed electromagnetic energy to heat the tissue just beneath the skin’s surface, destroying fat cells to increase contour and definition in treatment areas. This process triggers the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin fibers, while also reducing the size and volume of fat cells in the treatment area, producing a tighter skin tone.



CoolSculpting, a non-invasive treatment popular among doctors and patients alike for its safe and effective body contouring benefits, is now approved by the FDA for use as a skin tightening treatment as well as for body contouring.

Relying on advanced technology that delivers freezing temperatures to skin cells below the surface of the skin, the treatment has also shown efficacy in maintaining skin tightness even after fat has gradually diminished as a result of the CoolSculpting treatment. It is believed that this effect results from the treatment’s ability to trigger collagen production, which improves skin tone and texture and produces visibly firmer and smoother skin.


IPL+Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

What Is IPL?

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy, also known as photorejuvenation, is an effective treatment for skin laxity, and also evens skin pigmentation and diminishes redness, while improving the skin’s texture and tone. IPL delivers light energy to tissue on the surface and the inner layers of skin. IPL therapy may not be recommended for patients with darker skin.

How Does IPL Tighten Skin?

IPL therapy, also known as a “photofacial” is a 30-minute treatment that uses intense pulses of light to penetrate the skin tissue, stimulating production of collagen and causing constriction of subdermal blood vessels, reducing redness as well as lines and wrinkles. Increased production of collagen and blood vessel constriction naturally lead to tighter, firmer skin.

How Safe and Effective Is It?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) skin rejuvenation treatments are actually safer than ablative laser resurfacing treatments, because the light source used in IPL treatments affects the subdermal tissue rather than the surface of the skin, minimizing damage to the skin’s surface. IPL treatments are quick and effective, and require a minimal recovery period.


Common Skin Tightening Areas

Nothing makes adults look more aged than loose and sagging skin. Whether it’s in the face, neck, or the body, loose and sagging skin can make us look old and worn, often much older than we actually feel. Skin tightening may be achieved by a variety of means, depending on the area of the body to be treated, the severity of the condition, and the amount of elasticity in your skin.

Loose and sagging skin can develop on almost any area of the face or body, but there are some specific areas that seem to be troublesome for most people. Fortunately, there are various treatments designed to tighten the skin, and these may be used on different areas of the body. The following areas are those that patients most frequently want to address when seeking skin-tightening solutions.

  • Face, including the jowls and cheeks
  • Neck and throat region, down to the neckline and décolleté
  • Arms, particularly the “wings” that develop under the upper arms
  • Abdomen, notably folds of loose and flaccid skin following pregnancy or dramatic weight loss
  • Thighs: sagging crepe-paper skin that accumulates just above the knees
  • Buttocks that droop or sag
Face & Neck

Face and Neck Tightening Procedures

For best results on the skin of the face and neck without surgery, Dr. Bachilo may recommend a combination radiofrequency skin tightening facial with, Ultrasound and/or IPL therapy.

RF and IPL skin tightening treatments for the face provide long-lasting lifting and firming by boosting collagen and elastin production, improving skin tone on the face, chin, and neck, as well as the nasolabial area extending from the nose to the mouth.

Ultrasound therapy specifically treats lax skin on the neck, as well as jowls and sagging skin beneath the chin, the decolletage region, and on the brow and forehead.


Abdominal (Stomach) Skin Tightening

For patients seeking non-surgical stomach tightening, Dr. Bachilo recommends skin tightening treatments using radiofrequency technology.

RF therapy delivers controlled, focused heat to the deeper layers of skin in the abdominal region, producing a tightening and firming effect by means of increased collagen production in the tummy area. RF treatments effectively diminish the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles on the abdomen, producing a slimmer and more toned appearance.

RF therapy produces both immediate results and increased improvement over time as collagen production continues to improve the skin for several months after the treatment. RF treatments are safe and comfortable and there is no down time required.

Arms & Legs

Arms, Legs, and Other Body Areas

Dr. Bachilo uses different radiofrequency devices to tighten sagging skin in different areas of the face and body. RF treatments are highly effective to treat lax, sagging skin in the arms, tummy, and thighs.

Some treatments require a quarter-inch incision in order to target layers deep within the skin, producing exceptional lifting and firming results that appear immediately after treatment and continue to improve over several months.

Some patients require only a single treatment, while others may require 2 to 6 treatments. Treatments produce little to no discomfort, and require no downtime. RF treatments are safe and effective for people with all skin types and skin colors.


Skin Tightening Plastic Surgery

Those patients who are not ideal candidates for any of the above-mentioned treatments, or those who have excessive sagging tissue and loose skin that must be trimmed away, would do well to consider a surgical skin removal or procedures such as a body lift, arm lift, breast lift, or neck lift. In many cases, Dr. Bachilo may recommend a customized combination of several of these procedures to tighten the body’s overall contour and definition.

Surgical Skin Tightening After Weight Loss

Following dramatic weight loss, the skin on the stomach and midsection may become extremely lax, with sagging folds that can cause discomfort as well as detracting from your new, slimmer appearance. To correct this, Dr. Bachilo may recommend body lift surgery combined with liposuction to extract any remaining fat pockets and achieve a tighter body contour.

For patients less severe laxity, tummy tuck surgery to flatten and tighten the stomach and midsection may be sufficient. In some cases, Dr. Bachilo may recommend a combination of surgery with nonsurgical treatments such as RF therapy.

Facial Skin Tightening

Surgical tightening of the face is typically achieved with a face-lift, which tightens the skin of the face and neck. Some patients may require only a mini-facelift, treating only the lower portion of the face, while others may require surgery to tighten and lift the brow area or remove under eye bags and wrinkles. Facial plastic surgery tightens such problem areas as the jowls, neck, nasolabial folds, and double chin, as well as lifting the skin of the cheeks and midsection. Recovery after facial surgery may take from 10 days to two weeks, and results typically last for several years.

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor and has a very friendly and kind personality. I had been to many plastic surgeons and none made me feel comfortable and respected the way she did when talking with her. I will continue to see her no matter where I am in the U.S. - Google

Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner.

Dr. Bachilo performed this procedure on me in March 2019. I am a 50-year-old female, 5‘4“, 170 pounds. Dr. Bachilo removed 10 L of fat, which is a very aggressive surgery. I felt comfortable with her, and asked her to push the limits, which she did. I spent the night in the hospital as a precaution as my blood pressure dropped and needed to be stabilized and monitored. Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner. She checked on me several times during the day and night before I left. I am now 8 days post-op and pleased with the results. - RealSelf
