3 Treatments to Lift and Tighten Aging Skin Without Surgery
Would you like to look as youthful on the outside as you feel on the inside? Now you can without going under the knife. Discover three groundbreaking treatments to lift and tighten aging skin without surgery.

Aging is a natural process, yet its signs, such as sagging skin and wrinkles, often feel anything but natural when you look in the mirror. While most people think surgery is the only way to turn back the hands of time, a great alternative is a non-surgical face and neck lift

Over the years, cosmetic treatments have evolved, offering effective non-surgical options for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance. Dr. Neal Handel and his team at The Beverly Hills Plaza Medi Spa in Los Angeles, California, routinely carry out these cutting-edge treatments successfully. 

This article explores three innovative treatments we offer: Profound Microneedling RF, PDO Thread Lift, and Morpheus8.

1. Profound microneedling RF

Profound microneedling RF adds a twist to traditional microneedling by incorporating radiofrequency (RF) energy. This treatment targets the lower layers of your skin to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, the key components that make your skin appear youthful.

How does it work?

We use a handheld device with tiny needles to puncture your skin's surface. Radiofrequency energy is then delivered through these needles to heat the underlying layers of your skin. This heat creates a controlled 'damage,' which triggers your body's natural healing process. Your skin responds by producing more collagen and elastin, creating firmer, more youthful skin.

What to expect 

Benefits of this procedure include:

  • Non-invasive and minimal downtime
  • Stimulates natural collagen and elastin production
  • In as little as one session, results are visible 

While "needles" might sound intimidating, the procedure is generally well-tolerated. The treatment takes about an hour, and most people can return to regular activities within a few days. Some redness and swelling are expected but typically subside quickly.

2. PDO thread lift

PDO thread lift is another minimally invasive treatment that offers immediate lifting effects. The procedure involves threading absorbable sutures consisting of polydioxanone (PDO) into your skin to lift and support sagging areas.

How does it work?

We insert these PDO threads under your skin using a fine needle. These threads have tiny barbs that grab onto your skin tissue, allowing us to pull the threads taut and lift sagging skin instantly. Over time, these threads dissolve, but first stimulate your skin to produce collagen naturally.

What to expect

Some benefits of this procedure are:

  • Immediate lifting effect
  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production
  • Long-lasting results
  • Minimal recovery time

One of the most appealing aspects of a PDO thread lift is that it's flexible, allowing for adjustments over time as the threads dissolve and natural collagen gets produced. 

3. Morpheus8

Morpheus8 combines microneedling and radiofrequency treatments for the face and other areas needing skin tightening, such as your stomach and thighs.

How does it work?

We use a specialized device with fine needles that penetrate deeper layers of your skin than traditional microneedling. Then, RF energy is passed through these needles, reaching the deeper skin layers to stimulate collagen production more effectively.

What to expect

If you opt for this treatment, you can expect advantages such as:

  • Deep tissue penetration
  • Suitable for multiple skin types
  • Reduces the appearance of stretch marks and scars

What sets Morpheus8 apart is its versatility. It works across different skin types and tones and may be combined with other treatments for improved results.
