Revitalize Your Skin With Skin Tightening

Loose, sagging skin may occur after the aging process or after significant weight loss. It can obscure the facial profile and the physique, distracting from patients’ natural assets. It may also cause patients to be self-conscious and to avoid wearing certain clothing. Our team of skilled, knowledgeable providers has extensive expertise in the field of non-invasive skin tightening and we provide access to among the most advanced technology currently on the market.

What is non-surgical skin tightening?

Many forms of non-invasive skin tightening rely on the power of radiofrequency and light energy to trigger the body’s natural production of skin-firming collagen. Collagen is an all-important protein that is responsible for the soft, supple, radiant skin found in youthful complexions. The heat energy in skin tightening devices helps to offset the body’s age-related loss of collagen and provides a stronger internal scaffolding for the skin, resulting in a revitalized appearance over time.

Skin tightening solutions at Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery


EmbraceRF harnesses the power of radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate the skin and leave you looking slimmer, younger, and more sculpted. Non-surgical and minimally invasive, Embrace RF takes just 45-60 minutes to complete. It utilizes two FDA-approved modalities – Morpheus8 and FaceTite – to reinvigorate and regenerate the body’s collagen output. Fresh layers of collagen help to smooth away wrinkles, firm the skin’s underlying structure, and enhance youthful volume in the forehead, brows, cheeks, jaw, chin, and neck.


Morpheus8 pairs conventional collagen induction therapy (microneedling) with innovative RF energy for transformative results. The treatment not only addresses sagging skin but also targets wrinkles, lines, acne scars, poor skin texture, enlarged pores, and stretch marks. Morpheus8’s ultra-fine needles create tiny microchannels in the skin while radiofrequency energy works below the surface to stimulate collagen renewal. The treatment can be used on multiple areas of the face and body.


FaceTite uses cutting-edge radiofrequency (RF) energy to remodel the skin tissue at the core level, delivering tighter, firmer skin from the inside out. External heating also leads to skin contraction, giving you a radiant, youthful glow. FaceTite can initiate internal lipolysis that reduces fat cells. It is an ideal solution for treating loose skin in the jawline, jowls, and neck. FaceTite can be especially effective for those patients looking to reduce stubborn submental fat.


SkinTyte is another innovative, non-invasive solution for firmer skin. SkinTyte relies on advanced broadband light energy to internally remodel the skin’s structures, building new layers of healthy collagen and elastin. By fortifying the skin’s underlying structures, SkinTyte helps to produce enhanced vitality and youthfulness in the appearance. Treatment can be used on the face, neck, chin, stomach, and more.

Who is a good candidate for skin tightening?

The degree of skin sagging will play a role in determining your candidacy. Patients with mild to moderate skin laxity will get the best results with non-surgical skin tightening devices. Those with more significant skin sagging may need to consider a surgical approach for best results. 

Good candidates for non-invasive skin tightening must also be at a stable, healthy weight, as gaining weight may nullify results. Non-surgical skin tightening will thus not be appropriate for pregnant mothers since their bodies will undergo multiple changes due to childbirth. During your private consultation, our team will conduct a thorough medical and physical evaluation to ensure that non-invasive skin tightening is a good match for your goals and wishes.
