What is Non-Surgical Skin Tightening?
Non-surgical skin tightening refers to treatment options that require no cutting or suturing of the skin. These treatments are safe and effective and can be used both on the face and the body with minimal to no downtime. Tightening the skin is a process in which collagen growth is stimulated and therefore assists in a contraction of the skin to give a “tighter” appearance and feeling.
Options for Skin-Tightening treatments?
When addressing skin laxity on the face and body, there are a variety of treatment options available. Our team of experts will assess your area of concern and recommend a plan for you depending on the cause(s) of your skin laxity. Some of those treatment options include:
– Dermal Filler Injections
– CO2 resurfacing
Who is an ideal candidate for Skin Tightening?
Adults who have noticed drooping, sagging and/or loose skin as well as age-related asymmetry can benefit from these treatments. The best results are seen at the beginning of symptom development. It should be noted that many patients that are looking for surgery-like results may only benefit from traditional surgery. We can help you make the most informed decision for yourself by providing you with all the options and setting your expectations for results based on treatment through an in-depth consultation.
Is there any downtime with the treatments?
Non-surgical skin tightening treatments vary in length and frequency depending on the results you are after. At ODC we like to think that we are always working with our patients 24/7 to prevent aging. This is a lifelong decisions that requires a multi-modality approach of consistent energy device treatments and a well thought out skincare regimen designed by our skin consultants and medical professionals.
How does it feel?
One of the benefits about choosing ODC is the multiple treatments options we offer as a clinic. With over 15 lasers, 2 surgeons, 3 nurses, multiple skin consultants and a dermatologist it makes it easy for us to design a skin health journey that caters to your lifestyle and preferences. One thing we do like to tell our patients is we will make your treatment as comfortable as possible with the correct preparation of numbing cream and alternative pain relief when necessary.
Most energy devices feel like a rubber band flicking on your skin or in some cases mild to moderate scratching on your skin. When it comes to filler and neuromodulator our medical professionals will discuss and manage your anxiety around needles if that is an issue for you.

When will I notice results?
Skin health is all about skin cycles. Generally, it takes 3 to 4 cycles to notice a difference from any skin treatment or skin care regimen. A normal skin cycle is approximately 30 days. When it comes to collagen synthesis/rebuilding collagen we always tell our patients to allow for 3-6 months. Botox normally takes approximately 10-12 days to take action with Filler starting immediately.
