All Over Body, Face & Under Eye Skin Tightening Procedures

Published by DR. Bradley Ashpole

As the sun makes more frequent appearances and the temperature rise, you might catch yourself doing a body inventory. If you notice wrinkles or sagging skin you just aren’t prepared to deal with, consider a skin tightening procedure.

Radiofrequency Technology

Procedures utilizing radiofrequency (RF) waves are safe and effective treatments that smooth and tighten skin anywhere on the body. Your plastic surgeon or dermatologist will use an electromagnetic device to target problem areas, delivering deep-tissue RF waves. This allows all layers of skin to be heated, which stimulates existing collagen and elastin. It also promotes the growth of new skin cells, resulting in younger-looking skin.


One of the newest RF procedures available is the BodyTite system. This skin tightening procedure for the stomach and thighs addresses areas with stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise.

BodyTite also includes options for targeting smaller areas as well as areas with sensitive skin. FaceTite targets the neck and large areas of the face like jowls, cheeks, and forehead. AccuTite targets very specific areas on the body like the eye area and areas with sensitive skin.

This combination of technology is a brilliant way to target under-eye bags and other areas with loose skin. The Morpheus8 procedure only targets the top layer of skin, and it’s safe, effective, and painless. It can also be used in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for a more profound effect.

The best part of all these procedures is that they only take about 15 minutes. It’s something you can easily do during your lunch break and return to work.
