What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening at Fiore Dermatology uses noninvasive methods to tighten lax, aging skin and make it look younger without surgery, pain, or downtime. Examples of skin tightening treatments include:


Ultherapy uses painless ultrasound energy to build and strengthen collagen production, lifting targeted tissues in your neck, brows, jawline, chin, or décolletage (lower neckline area) without downtime.


Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable made of deoxycholic acid. It permanently dissolves fat cells from under your chin, creating a tightening effect without surgery.

What are the benefits of skin tightening?

The benefits of undergoing skin tightening at Fiore Dermatology include:

  • Tighter, lifted skin
  • Increased collagen production
  • Slimmer jawline
  • Younger-looking appearance
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Reduced stubborn fat

The procedures available at Fiore Dermatology are painless and noninvasive, and there’s no downtime afterward.

Is skin tightening right for me?

To find out if Ultherapy or Kybella skin tightening treatments are right for you, a Fiore Dermatology provider discusses your medical history and your desired results. They examine areas of your skin that are loose, wrinkled, sagging, or contain stubborn fat cells before tailoring your treatment plan. 

What should I expect during the procedure?

During skin tightening procedures, you rest comfortably in a relaxing room. Your Fiore Dermatology specialist may numb the treatment area, if necessary, to enhance comfort. Your provider applies painless ultrasound energy to the skin or injects Kybella beneath the skin to destroy fat cells.

Ultherapy may last 30-60 minutes or longer in some cases. Kybella injections are a faster treatment. You might undergo more than one cosmetic procedure to achieve the results you long for.

What happens after skin tightening?

There’s no need for downtime after you complete skin tightening treatments. Treated skin may be a little bit red for a short period. Over the next few weeks and months, you can expect tighter, younger-looking skin. A series of multiple treatment sessions usually offer the best results. Your dermatology specialist lets you know when to schedule your next skin tightening procedure.
