Skin Tightening Q & A

What are non-surgical skin tightening treatments?

When it comes to helping you achieve your beauty goals, West End Facial Plastic Surgery wants nothing more than to give you the most natural-looking results. The practice offers many non-surgical skin tightening treatments to address many beauty concerns, including:

PrecisionTx® laser

The PrecisionTx laser is an office-based laser system that serves as a hybrid between a surgical facelift and non-invasive skin tightening treatments.

During your PrecisionTx laser treatment, your provider inserts a laser tool through a small incision under your skin. The laser tool first destroys fat cells and then sucks them out. 

Your provider uses the in-office skin tightening treatment to sculpt your jawline and neck.


Pellevé is a painless skin tightening tool that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and lift the skin and soften lines and wrinkles. 


Microneedling is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that triggers the production of collagen. Collagen is a structural protein responsible for your skin’s youthful strength and elasticity. West End Facial Plastic Surgery uses SkinPen®, the first FDA-cleared microneedling device. 

Laser skin resurfacing

West End Facial Plastic Surgery offers in-office laser skin resurfacing treatments. These laser tools improve skin tone and texture and promote collagen growth to restore your skin’s youthful look. 

What are surgical skin tightening treatments?

The board-certified plastic surgeon at West End Facial Plastic Surgery performs the following surgical skin tightening treatments:

Lower facelift and neck lift

The experienced facial plastic surgeon performs a lower facelift and neck lift that lifts and tightens droopy jowls and excess tissue along your neck to revitalize your appearance. 

Eye lifts

For droopy and puffy eyelids, West End Facial Plastic Surgery performs eye lifts, also known as blepharoplasty. During the procedure, your surgeon removes excess skin and fat in your upper or lower eyelid and pulls the skin to tighten the tissue. 

Brow lift

To address visible signs of aging that affect your upper face, the plastic surgeon at West End Facial Plastic Surgery performs a brow lift. During the procedure, your surgeon removes and lifts excess forehead skin while tightening the underlying muscles.

How do I know what skin tightening treatment is right for me?

West End Facial Plastic Surgery takes a patient-centered approach to care. When you come in for a consultation, your provider spends time talking to you about your aesthetic concerns and goals. Then, they examine your skin and review your medical history.

Together, you decide what type of skin tightening treatment makes the most sense for you.
