Recontour, lift and improve your skin elasticity with our minimally-invasive facial aesthetic treatments that require no downtime.

Our laser and radiofrequency skin tightening treatments are some of the best in the industry, designed to lift, recontour and refresh sagging skin across the face and the body. 

Many factors contribute to the formation of loose or sagging skin, but ageing is one of the main ones. As we age, our skin loses vital structural components that keep it taut, firm, and youthful. 

Our supportive collagen and elastin stores gradually degrade over time, and we lose bone and fat in our face, which can cause our skin to droop and sag. Other factors like repetitive facial expressions, smoking, weight loss, sun damage and pregnancy also contribute to loose and prematurely aged skin.

Our Lifting and Tightening, Anti-ageing Facial Aesthetic Treatments

Face Tightening treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic have been designed to target these ageing processes by instantly tightening and lifting loose skin without any surgery or downtime. We treat a complete range of body areas so that patients can enhance their appearance in a holistic way. One of the most common areas we treat is the lower face, upper eye and jawline area, which suffer most from the effects of fat loss and gravity.

We also treat the stomach, neck and arms with a range of different treatments, from radiofrequency skin tightening technologies (Thermage, Thermage FLX), radiofrequency and microneedling (Morpheus8), and ultrasound (Ultherapy) procedures to skin tightening injectables (Profhilo).

What areas can be treated with Skin Tightening procedures?

The following areas of the face and body can be treated with our ultrasound, radiofrequency skin tightening procedures:

  • Face
  • Jowls
  • Jawline
  • Cheeks
  • Neck
  • Upper Arms
  • Stomach
  • Under-eye bags
  • Upper eye area
  • Chest
  • Buttocks

Some of the most popular areas of treatment are detailed below:

Face Tightening Procedures to Tighten Loose Skin

Ageing, weight loss and weight gain can cause our skin to stretch and sag on the face. We lose supportive structures like collagen and elastin as we age, along with fat and bone. This can make our skin look less firm and plump. Injectable treatments can be applied to bring back volume while advanced skin tightening technologies can be used to stimulate production of collagen and elastin in the skin’s deep layers. 

Sagging necks

Sagging necks can form as a natural part of the ageing process. The issue can also be worsened by factors like weight change, genetics, sun exposure and gravity, which can all affect the severity of loose and sagging skin around the neck. This loose skin can be tightened with a combination of injectable and advanced technological treatments like radio frequency, laser, or ultrasound


Jowls are the sagging pockets of skin that form around the lower jawline. Ageing is a primary cause, as our skin loses fat, bone, and supportive proteins over time, causing the skin in this area to droop. Jowls can be tightened with a range of treatments to firm up the sagging skin and restore structure to the jawline

Skin Tightening

Before & Afters


Skin tightening treatments work to stimulate and restore production of collagen and elastin deep within the skin’s dermis to tighten and lift the skin while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Non-surgical ultrasound and radiofrequency treatments are two leading methods to tighten and firm the skin without any surgery or downtime. Skin tightening injectables like Profhilo can also be used to lift the skin and tighten up visible creases, sagging skin and wrinkles.

Our non-invasive skin tightening treatments are designed to firm up the skin and minimise the appearance of sagging. They do this through a combination of methods that work to rebuild and restore the skin’s natural elasticity and structure. Our range of injectable treatments and collagen stimulators work to renew the skin’s key structural proteins like collagen and elastin while adding lost volume back to hollowed-out areas. We also offer advanced ultrasound and radiofrequency technologies, which heat and remodel the skin’s tissues to provide a natural land noticeable lift. 

After a course of skin tightening treatments, patients can expect tighter, firmer and younger-looking skin with improved elasticity and texture. We are able to treat the face, body and neck with treatments that bring back structure, moisture and vitality to your skin. This helps to improve the overall quality of your skin in the targeted areas, while helping to minimise signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles.

Radiofrequency skin tightening (also called Radiofrequency (RF) Therapy) is a popular nonsurgical method of tightening skin. This skin tightening procedure involves using energy radio waves to heat the deeper layers of your dermis. The heat stimulates the production of collagen.

Collagen is important as it is the building blocks of having youthful and plump skin. However, as we age, our collagen levels decline. Radiofrequency skin tightening combats this decline with non-invasive energy radio waves.

The best skin tightening treatment for your needs is dependent on a range of factors, including your skincare goals, lifestyle factors and healthcare history. During your consultation, our expert practitioners will explore these areas with you personally to come up with a suitable treatment plan that will give you the best results. 

Ideal candidates for our skin tightening treatments are patients who suffer from wrinkly, sagging or loose areas of skin. Our treatments work to lift and restore volume to these areas to generate a more youthful and sculpted look. Both men and women of all ages can benefit from our treatments, and they are suitable for most skin types. Your medical history and skincare goals will be reviewed during the consultation to make sure you are the right candidate.  

All of the skin tightening procedures at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic have little to no downtime thanks to their non-invasive nature; a patient can carry on with their normal activities immediately after receiving their chosen treatment. 

Skin tightening treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic have little to no downtime thanks to their non-invasive nature. At the most, common skin tightening side effects can be temporary swelling, tingling and/or redness.

Our FDA-approved skin tightening treatments are completely safe and pain-free, involving zero injections or surgery. Depending on the treatment you take, there can be some mild discomfort, but nothing that needs anaesthetic or pain relief. The collagen-stimulating effects of Ultherapy and radiofrequency treatments can cause a tingling, tender and warming sensation when the procedure is taking place, but most patients do not report any significant discomfort. Our trained practitioners have performed hundreds of procedures and will advise on how best to manage your treatment while making it as comfortable as possible.

Prices for our radiofrequency and laser skin tightening treatments start from £1200. Speak to our teams in London and Buckinghamshire, today to find out more and book your consultation.
