If you want to reverse the signs of aging by tightening loose skin, but surgical procedures aren’t something you’re looking for, you still have options. A variety of non-surgical treatments exist that can create beautiful, natural-looking results and help you tighten and rejuvenate sagging or wrinkled skin. Here are a few ways to tighten loose skin without facial surgery.


Botox is an injectable solution that temporarily relaxes the facial muscles. This injection reverses the contraction below the skin that is responsible for forehead wrinkles and creases, smoothing the facial appearance. 

Botox is minimally invasive and only takes a few seconds to administer painlessly to the patient via a very fine needle. Each injection and injection site is customized for the individual patient’s unique needs and goals for a rejuvenated, natural result.

After the injection, patients will experience some swelling and bruising as well as localized redness at the injection site. Results last for several months, but the patient will have to return regularly to keep up their results.

OcuRx is another method of tightening loose skin without surgery, and is similar to other filler treatments. OcuRx meant to specifically rejuvenate the under eye area with Restylane or hyaluronic acid fillers. This procedure only takes about 30 minutes and is done in the office or clinic. Total numbing cream is applied to the undereye area and then filler is carefully deposited along the ridge of the eye socket in small amounts. The undereye area is massaged and smoothed to mold the filler and achieve the desired results. 

After the procedure, patients should ice the area and avoid strenuous activity, but can resume normal activity the following day. Bruising and swelling can last for a few days post-procedure, but final OcuRx results are typically seen by day 4.

BTL Exilis Ultra 

Athré Facial Plastics is one of the few clinics in the area to offer the BTL Exilis Ultra treatment, which uses radiofrequency and ultrasound to encourage the growth of new collagen and tighten existing collagen. The BTL Exilis tool transfers energy and heat into the deep layers of the skin which causes the reorganization and tightening of existing collagen bundles, new collagen growth, as well as reduction of fat tissue.

The procedure is nonpainful, with some patients even reporting that it feels like a warm massage across the face. The BTL Exilis Ultra skin tightening treatment does take several sessions to achieve the desired effect, but many patients see results after only a couple of sessions that last up to two years.
