When early signs of skin sagging, drooping or creasing begin to show up in the mirror, non-surgical anti-aging solutions are often an excellent place to start, rather than jumping right into a surgical procedure like a facelift or neck lift.

While no procedure — non-surgical or surgical — can offer permanent anti-aging results, many skin tightening treatments can improve the look and feel of your skin for several years. Learn more about how non-surgical skin tightening works, how long it lasts and what your options are.

How Does Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Work? 

Most cutting-edge non-surgical skin tightening devices work by triggering your skin’s natural renewal process, which also ramps up the production of collagen, an important protein that plays a key role in providing a firm, youthful structure and texture to your skin.

Devices like FaceTite™, AccuTite™ and Morpheus8 use radiofrequency energy to boost collagen and cell renewal. FaceTite and AccuTite treatments begin with a small incision so that a special radiofrequency probe can reach the underlying layers of skin.

Morpheus8 works similarly, though no incisions are needed. Instead, this skin tightening treatment combines microneedling technology with radiofrequency waves to target deeper layers of skin.

How Long Does Non–Surgical Skin Tightening Last? 

FaceTite and AccuTite skin tightening results can last for up to five years, while Morpheus8 results typically last 1 to 2 years.

Lifestyle habits such as avoiding sun exposure, wearing sunscreen, eating a healthy diet and getting enough sleep can also affect the longevity of your non-surgical skin tightening results.
