You can’t escape the specter of aging skin, but you can fight it! For most of us, loose skin makes us feel much older than we want to and leaves us wondering how to tighten skin on the face.
In Ottawa Hills, Blush Aesthetics offers a variety of skin tightening treatments for the face and the body, including well-loved names like Sciton’s SkinTyte and radiofrequency (RF) microneedling with Lutronic Genius and Lumenis Legend Pro. These treatments allow for new ways to address loose skin without the need for significant downtime associated with surgery.
If loose skin has caught up with you, fight back and restore the youthful look you love with skin tightening from Blush!
Does RF microneedling tighten skin on the face?
With effective collagen production stimulated by your body’s natural healing processes and encouraged by radiofrequency energies, RF microneedling offers an incredible skin tightening facial option. Controlled punctures on the surface of the skin on the face, neck, and chest stimulate columns of healing that rejuvenate your skin’s appearance and texture.
RF microneedling is FDA-cleared and scientifically proven as safe and effective. It produces both immediate and progressive results without the need for a lot of social downtime. Microneedling is also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) because it effectively stimulates the production of new collagen.
Why is collagen important?
Aesthetic facilities like ours use a variety of technologies and techniques intended to stimulate production of new collagen. Collagen is responsible for many biological functions in mammals, but we love it because it provides the structural support for connective tissues, muscles, and skin. To put it simply? Collagen makes skin strong, supple, and youthful 💗

How to tighten skin on the face? Introducing Sculptra
Sculptra is a biostimulant that tightens skin on the face through a new form of collagen stimulation. It works deeply, restoring volume and promoting collagen regeneration to give a fuller, healthier, and more supple appearance to your skin.
This FDA-approved product provides natural-looking results that last for 3 to 5 years. With annual 1-vial maintenance, Sculptra can offer you tighter facial skin for years to come.
What happens to collagen as we age?
As we age, our body’s production of collagen slows and the collagen layer in skin depletes, leaving behind empty, lax, and wrinkled skin. Once you enter your 20s the production slows, and by the time you hit 60, your skin’s production of collagen is considerably less than it had been at 20.
Sculptra uses its biostimulatory properties to induce your body’s natural collagen output over time. This leaves you with tighter skin that looks continually younger and younger!
SkinTyte skin tightening treatments for the face
SkinTyte treatment is another popular treatment we recommend when asked how to tighten skin on the face in Ottawa Hills. SkinTyte infrared treatments harness the power of light wave technology to nourish and naturally tighten your skin.
SkinTyte treatments reverse the effects of natural aging by tightening and firming loose or sagging skin on the face and in key areas of the body. Whether due to weight loss, pregnancy, or aging, loose skin is no match for SkinTyte. It remains one of the safest, most optimized, most cost-effective ways to give patients younger-looking skin.
Skin tightening at home | Do jade rollers help tighten sagging skin?
Do jade rollers help tighten sagging skin? No, no they do not. Don’t get us wrong, we’re not hating on jade rollers! The facts simply show us how little scientific evidence there is to support some of the benefits facial rollers claim to give. A lot of people still enjoy using jade rollers in their skincare routine, and for good reason.
The materials used in facial rollers tend to be cool and can be refrigerated to enhance this quality, so when you use them on your face it can temporarily reduce puffiness.
Proper usage of the roller (essentially, make sure you roll the device from the middle to the outside of your face and down) encourages lymphatic drainage. This can be easier for some than traditional lymphatic massage with the hands and fingers. Again, this just leads to very subtle and temporary slimming effects in your facial contours, because the lymphatic fluid builds up again.
Consultation for skin tightening treatments
Everyone’s skin is different so there is no one-size-fits-all solution for how to tighten skin on the face in Ottawa Hills. During an initial consultation for treatment, your provider will assess your areas of concern and recommend the type and number of treatments needed to achieve your goals. For full resolution of significant skin laxity, we can discuss surgical options with our Double Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kesler, and can certainly discuss that as an option. For those seeking non or minimally invasive options with no to low downtime, we have plenty of options that can work for you.
