Safe & Effective Skin Tightening Treatments

Have a refreshed and youthful look without surgery and downtime.

In Cutis, we have taken care of many patients with the same concerns and often a combination of treatments combat all signs of aging and provide significant results. Our treatments are FDA-cleared that safely and effectively stimulate collagen to lift, tighten and firm the skin without surgery or downtime.

During the consultation, our US Board Certified and Harvard-trained doctor, Dr. Sylvia Ramirez, will further discuss the treatment options and explain in full details the benefits of one vs the others for each particular skin type.

How to lift and tighten the skin without surgery?

Aging results from a combination of changes in our bone and soft tissue resulting in laxity and volume loss. This is seen as sagging of the jawline, deepening of the nasolabial folds and overall “dropping” appearance of the face. In order to create a lift, combination of treatments or “lifting procedures” are needed to combat the different factors that contributes to the aging face.

Cutis Thread Lifts are minimal invasive procedures that lift and tighten the face safely and effectively using absorbable threads - the same materials that are used for surgery. In Cutis, we provide PLA (Polylactic acid) and PDO (Polydioxanone) sutures to provide a wide range of different threads that address different concerns.

Silhouette Soft Threads are made with safe bidirectional absorbable PLA thread cones to lift sagging skin while gradually increasing volume resulting in a redefined face, restored volume and reduced wrinkles.

The Cutis PDO Threads are made of wide range of absorbable threads to provide a gentle lifted appearance that can be seen immediately. PDO threads stimulate the production of new collagen and it also stimulate the synthesis of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin - both of which are vital for keeping the skin looking plump and youthful.

Titan Skin Tightening utilizes a safe, infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. This heating can cause immediate collagen contraction resulting in tighter skin. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece. After the procedure, new collagen growth results in further tightening with the improvement of lax skin, folds and lines.

Ultherapy is the only US FDA-cleared as well as a European CE mark non-invasive lifting procedure that uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift the skin from the brow, face and jawline, to the chest. Ultherapy bypasses the skin's surface to deliver the right amount of energy in the right depth. This energy jumpstarts the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen that lifts and tightens the skin.

Fillers are injectable gels that are used to restore volume and structure to the skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to replenish lost volume from the cheeks, recreating a youthful “apple” shape and giving the face a gentle lift. Fillers can also remove fine lines between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds) and around the mouth. They have also been shown to have long-term collagen-building effect, which is important in maintaining firmness of the skin.

In Cutis, we also use Liquid Lift, a special technique for injecting advanced dermal fillers, to lift and contour facial features. This results in a gentle natural lift of overall facial features, reducing lines and wrinkles, improving eyebags or “tear troughs”, reducing dark circles, restoring a natural curved facial contour, and giving you a more rested energetic look.

The recommended treatment plan will depend on the individual's skin conditions and concerns and a combination of treatments might be required to achieve best results which will be discussed in the consultation.
