Skin Tightening Face
Skin Tightening Face Treatment in South Pasadena, CA
What is Skin Tightening for the Face?
Aging skin is a problem that everyone will eventually have to deal with. After we are in our twenties we are producing less collagen, getting more damage from the sun and on top of all this we are fighting gravity! Habits like smoking can make the skin even worse, but even the healthiest people find themselves dealing with this issue- you are not alone. Over time, the skin’s underlying structure starts to break down causing us to lose the plumpness and definition that we once had. Thanks to these factors the skin starts to sag and hang.
The lack of firmness and elasticity:
- Gives the appearance of deep lines around the nose and mouth (aka marionette lines)
- Causes jowls (lower part of the cheek) to sag
- May cause bags under the eyes to become more pronounced
- Can cause eyelids to sag
As time goes on your skin will gradually lose its collagen, elastin and fat- these tissues play a vital role in supporting the volume, firmness and elasticity of your skin.
So what can be done?
What we can do
Traditionally medical providers use a filler to soften the lines that are caused by sagging, such as marionette lines (lines near the nose and mouth). The patient says, “I have these wrinkles I would like to get rid of.” The provider then injects the filler and the wrinkle is softened. Easy peasy, right? Wrong. The wrinkle is caused by the sagging of the face. In order to get results that look natural, the overall sagging has to be addressed, otherwise the over injection of filler can result in “pillow face.”
We prefer to use an approach where we are actually RESTORING the skin to a healthier state. This means that we target the issues such as collagen production and the structural sagging. Improving the structure can improve the appearance to a more youthful, natural look.
Since everyone’s situation is different when it comes to tightening the skin, we assess the area and determine which treatments would work best for the patient. We’ve been repairing and restoring skin for the last 17 years and this customized approach has given us the best results.
Because of this, all patients that are assessed to determine which treatment give optimal results. We have multiple treatments and technologies that can help tighten the skin on the face. We have devices that utilize Radiofrequency, Infrared technology and even minimally invasive “facelifts” that can help stimulate collagen production and lift the face!
The focus of our treatments is to kickstart your body’s own collagen production and harness the body’s innate ability to heal itself, which results in natural looking rejuvenation of the skin. Put simply, we are using treatments to get the body to repair itself.

How will I look and feel during and after the treatment?
Our non-invasive treatments range from feeling like a hot stone massage to mildly uncomfortable during treatment but this will not persist after treatment. Some of treatments have a no downtime and you can return to your activities and work the same day. With these treatments, your skin may appear to be slightly red or slightly swollen immediately after the procedure but makeup and/or sunscreen may be applied immediately. The redness and swelling should dissipate within a few hours and rarely persists longer than that. Cooling of the surface of the skin will provide enhanced safety as well as additional comfort throughout the treatment.
Our minimally invasive options may have a little downtime and are used in cases of significant sagging of the face. Our treatments all help to promote collagen and natural healing in the treated areas.
