Laser skin tightening is a non-ablative, non-surgical way to firm the skin safely, comfortably, and without downtime. At Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa of PHX, we offer excellent options for the most advanced laser skin tightening. The Pixel RF laser is non-invasive, working on the surface of the skin, while the minimally invasive Body Sculpting Ultrasound + Radio Frequency laser is applied uses advanced Ultrasound + Radio Frequency technology to deeply heat the skin and stimulate the remodeling of collagen, a key skin component that helps to provide structural support and firmness. This can result in progressive skin tightening and a more youthful appearance in the months following treatment. In addition to firming skin, laser skin tightening treatments can also improve the appearance of fine facial lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and mild to moderate acne scarring. Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa has over 30 years of experience in the medical Aesthetics field and is proud to offer the latest technology and techniques in laser skin tightening. Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa has been featured on Good Morning Arizona and Phoenix FOX 10 News about advanced laser skin tightening methodology.

How does laser skin tightening work?
The laser skin tightening procedure uses laser light energy to deeply heat dermal collagen, causing partial denaturation and contraction (tightening) of the collagen fibers. The heat will also stimulate the body’s natural healing process, attracting fibroblasts (the body’s repair cells) to the area to lay down a new collagen foundation. Both of these changes can lead to increased skin firmness. During the Body Sculpting Ultrasound + Radio Frequency procedure, powerful cooling maintains a comfortable temperature for the outer surface of the skin, protecting it while allowing the laser energy to work in the deeper dermis. The Body Sculpting Ultrasound + Radio Frequency laser also includes advanced temperature monitoring, which pinpoints when the proper safe temperature has been reached to allow for optimal collagen production.
What can be treated by laser skin tightening?
Laser skin tightening treatments are safe for all skin types and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in skin firmness is desired. Popular treatment areas include the face, neck, abdomen, thighs, and arms. One of our most popular treatment areas is in firming the neck of patients who do not wish to have a surgical neck lift. Laser skin tightening can also help shrink dilated pores on the face, firm wrinkled abdominal skin that results after pregnancies, and smooth fine wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. Laser skin tightening treatments can also be used before, after, or in combination with other procedures to maximize results, including Botox and Dermal Filler, or Hyperdiluted Radiesse, laser skin resurfacing, IPL PhotoFacial, chemical peeling, HydraFacial, and Microdermabrasion.
Skin Tightening Neck | Before & After
What kind of results can I expect from laser skin tightening?
While laser skin tightening is not a substitute for a facelift or other surgical procedures, both Pixel RF and Body Sculpting Ultrasound + Radio Frequency are excellent options for patients seeking moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Results are generally long-lasting and will vary from patient to patient, with significant improvement typically reported after treatment.*
When will I notice the results from laser skin tightening?
Although immediate tightening can be seen, long-lasting improvements in skin laxity generally take place over 3 to 6 months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.*
Can laser skin tightening be combined with other procedures?
Absolutely. Laser skin tightening treatments are often used in combination with other procedures to maximize results. For example, laser skin tightening may be used before or after Botox and Dermal Filler, laser skin resurfacing, and laser photofacial to improve the skin’s appearance. Body Sculpting Ultrasound + Radio Frequency is effective at firming skin after chemical peels, as well as after BOTOX® or filler injections. Body Sculpting Ultrasound + Radio Frequency can be used along with Coolsculpting to both tighten skin and remove fat.
How many treatments will I need for Body Sculpting Ultrasound + Radio Frequency laser skin tightening?
For optimal rejuvenation, a series of 3 to 6 treatments spaced 1 to 4 weeks apart is usually recommended for most patients.* Suddenly Slimmer licensed medical professionals will personalize your treatment plan based on the nature of the skin in the area being treated and the necessary level of improvement. They may also recommend combining Body Sculpting Ultrasound + Radio Frequency with other popular aesthetic procedures to maximize your results.
What should I expect during the laser skin tightening procedure?
Both the Pixel RF and Body Sculpting Ultrasound + Radio Frequency laser skin tightening procedures are performed on an outpatient basis in our offices. During the Body Sculpting Ultrasound + Radio Frequency procedure, light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses to gradually and comfortably heat the treatment area. When the optimal temperature is reached to stimulate future collagen production, treatment moves on to the next targeted area. Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa uses the most advanced lasers, which allow continual motion during treatment of multiple areas, resulting in shorter procedure times. There is no need for topical anesthetic during Body Sculpting Ultrasound + Radio Frequency treatment.
Do you offer alternatives to laser skin tightening?
Yes. We offer both Vivace RF MicroNeedling and Hyperdiluted Radiesse to achieve immediate skin contraction results.* These minimally invasive skin-tightening procedures can firm lax skin around the face or body by delivering rebuilding collagen which in turn helps to tighten loose skin. Hyperdiluted Radiesse can targets the face, neck, brows, cheeks, and jawline, while Vivace RF MicroNeedling can treats the face, neck, breasts, arms, inner thighs, and abdomen. Suddenly Slimmer licensed medical professionals can determine if either Vivace RF MicroNeedling and Hyperdiluted Radiesse are right for you during your laser skin tightening consultation.
