The Fat Is Gone, Now How Do I Tighten My Skin?

Over time, our skin begins to lose elasticity and volume, and collagen production even stops after the age of 25, so it’s on you to make sure that you’re taking care of your skin to keep it looking healthy, tight, and radiant. You’ve done the work to reduce or eliminate the fat in your chin, so now what?! It’s just dangling there or looking a little looser than before, causing even more frustration. Let’s tighten it!


There are a few different ways that the skin can be tightened after you’ve lost some weight or had other fat-reduction treatments performed. You can go the non-surgical route or undergo a full surgery; it just depends on you, your goals, and your comfort level. This blog will explain various options for you to help you decide your next step in tightening your skin and enhancing your facial aesthetic!

Option 1: Non-Surgical

At Synergy Face + Body, we offer non-surgical options to tighten the skin by using what’s already in your body: collagen. The body is amazing; it can heal itself and create something even better!

Genius™ RF Microneedling

Genius™ RF Microneedling is an aesthetic procedure that uses both radio frequency (RF) and microneedling. The heat from the RF energy tightens and lifts the skin, smoothing out lines and wrinkles. And microneedling punctures tiny wounds onto the surface of your skin to create injuries that generate the production of collagen for tighter skin.


Morpheus8 is another skin tightening option that works the same way as Genius™ RF Microneedling. It combines RF energy and microneedling to create tighter, healthier skin.

Option 2: Minimally Invasive

If you are experiencing significant facial sagging and want a more permanent approach (minus the natural effects of aging), Synergy Face + Body offers surgical procedures that can firm and tighten the skin with minimal downtime and lasting results .


MyEllevate® is a minimally invasive skin tightening option. It is a groundbreaking facial rejuvenation procedure that offers long-lasting results by refining and restoring a smooth jawline. MyEllevate® lifts, supports, and contours the underlying muscles and glands to enhance the treated area, resulting in a tighter, more youthful jawline appearance.


FaceTite® is a minimally invasive fat reduction and skin tightening treatment that is comparable to a surgical facelift. It uses radio frequency-assisted liposuction to firm and tighten the skin and stimulate collagen production. This treatment offers long-lasting results, with some patients stating they have seen their results last for five years.  

No matter which direction you choose to go, Synergy Face + Body can help you. Schedule your consultation today so that we can evaluate your lax skin condition and discuss your goals to provide you with a treatment plan specifically designed for you.
