tightening your face

During the natural aging process, things like collagen depletion, sun exposure, gravity, and lifestyle choices, can take a toll on the skin. All of these factors can result in sagging, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. Working with nature to encourage a smoother, more youthful look without sacrificing your natural appearance is possible.

When looking to promote a healthier aging process and tighten the skin on your face, you may be considering various facial tightening procedures. But skin tightening procedures are not a one-size-fits-all approach; your treatment should be just as unique as your skin. At GoodSkin, we work with nature, not against it, to create a customized healthy aging plan for each client to achieve smoother, tighter skin. 

The GoodSkin Method

The GoodSkin Method begins with a thorough analysis of your natural genetic qualities, including the bone, skin, muscle, fat, and fascia. This provides our experts with the necessary insight to create a personalized treatment plan to tighten the face and maintain a natural, healthy look. 

Following a diagnosis and the development of a treatment plan, a team will be assigned to work with each client and track their progress. The GoodSkin treatment techniques stem from a European approach that takes a comprehensive view of issues and aims to achieve an authentic and unaltered appearance. Rather than solely enhancing specific areas, we leverage our tools and technology to tackle root causes and enhance those regions more organically. Should tightening be necessary for the face, there are numerous treatment options available to help restore a natural and fresh look, depending on the specific issues.

Factors like loose connective tissue in the mid to lower face can contribute to skin or facial sagging. These are things our experts can address and make a priority in a treatment plan to provide optimal tightening results to the face that work with your facial anatomy and aging genetics. Several facial tightening procedures exist; our clinics only employ the best. We consider all factors contributing to any facial or skin sagging and recommend a treatment plan to provide you with the best Untouched results.


Ultherapy is a non-invasive, FDA-approved face-tightening treatment that uses micro-focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production and lift and tighten the skin. It is a great alternative to the traditional surgical facelift. It targets the deep layers of the skin without disrupting the surface, making it a popular choice for those seeking a less invasive option. 

This facial tightening treatment is often used for mild to moderate facial sagging and can be customized to target specific areas, such as the brows, jawline, and neck. The energy from the device is delivered precisely where it will benefit the client most for natural-looking results that improve over time.


Facetite is another FDA-approved, minimally invasive procedure that provides a safe alternative to surgery. This face-tightening procedure uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten the skin and stimulate collagen production, improving skin firmness and elasticity. Minor liposuction also treats stubborn areas prone to sagging, such as the jowls. Since Facetite helps promote collagen production, it can further enhance skin elasticity and tightness over time. 

Morpheus8 Face

Morpheus8 Face is a popular treatment combining radiofrequency and microneedling to tighten and lift the skin while improving texture, pores, and fine lines. Its cutting-edge technology delivers controlled heat deep into the skin, promoting collagen production and tightening the tissues for a healthier appearance.

Morpheus8 is highly customizable, and our laser performance experts dedicate a significant amount of time to customize the depth of the needles and the intensity of the RF energy based on the client’s specific needs to deliver effective and powerful results. The GoodSkin team works to minimize pain and promote the best treatment experience possible as a part of each client’s healthy aging plan.


Accutite is a minimally invasive radiofrequency contraction device that aids in fat reduction, tightening the skin, and improving facial contours by delivering heat to precise areas of the face. We typically combine this treatment with Morpheus8 to target and achieve better results on stubborn areas, such as the jowls and nasal labial folds.

Combining select treatments can offer more specialized options for certain areas. As each client is different, a variety of treatment combinations may be utilized. Treatment plans are designed to change with you as you age and adjust for different needs as they develop.

PDO Thread Lift

The PDO Thread Lift is a tightening procedure becoming increasingly popular as a face lifting and tightening alternative to surgery. This tightening technique delivers instant yet powerful results while minimizing pain & trauma. The threads are inserted under the skin, then gently lifted to reposition the skin and create a lifting effect. At GoodSkin, we take pride in our PD thread process, from sourcing the threads to creating a personalized treatment plan and precisely placing the threads for maximum lift and tightening. 

Thread lift can be used to address mild to moderate sagging in various areas of the face, including the cheeks, jowls, and neck.


Botox is a well-known injectable treatment used for facial rejuvenation, and with the proper techniques, it can help tighten the face. At GoodSkin, we take a different approach to Botox, using unique methods to create specific yet natural results rather than simply freezing the face. 

While Botox is not specifically designed for skin tightening, its effects on relaxing muscles can indirectly contribute to a tightening effect on the skin. When the muscles are relaxed, they put less tension on the overlying skin, allowing it to smooth out and appear tighter. We use specific techniques with Botox to help target certain areas and concerns to help create a tightening effect, such as our Botox Tox Tightening technique designed to prevent downturn corners of the mouth and tighten the lower face and sides of the mouth. 

Ellacor Laser

Ellacor laser treatments are designed to provide visible, natural-looking results without requiring a difficult, painful procedure. Ellacor with Micro-Coring Technology is the first device created to remove excess skin on the microscale, improving the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles simply and safely. 

This treatment is specifically designed to reduce wrinkles and may not work for all skin issues. Determining if Ellacor is the right treatment will depend on your GoodSkin diagnosis and individual treatment plan.

The Right Face Tightening Procedure

Various facial tightening treatments can give subtle and natural but profound results that fit your skin and desired outcome. The most effective procedure for you will depend on several factors, including the severity of your facial sagging and aging genetics. GoodSkin aims to deliver The Untouched Look, providing clients with natural, refreshed results that allow you to look and feel more like yourself. 

All of the face-tightening techniques we offer at GoodSkin deliver proven results, but the effectiveness of each facial-tightening procedure will depend on the client. It’s important to receive a treatment plan fully tailored to your unique skin and needs. At GoodSkin, we accomplish this with our scientifically-driven approach and recommend the best-tightening treatments based on your unique genetics of aging needs and qualities. No two clients are alike; each plan reflects your individuality and your skin.

The best way to determine the best face-tightening procedure for you is by undergoing a diagnostic appointment at one of our clinics. During your appointment, we dedicate time to educate and work closely with you to design a treatment plan to deliver the most natural and healthiest version of yourself. This plan is designed to create a tighter yet Untouched look that we’re known for. Reach out to our team today to set up an appointment and get started.
