About laser facelift
At birth, your body has a full supply of collagen and elastin that keeps your skin smooth, soft, healthy, and resilient. However, this supply of nutrients runs low and the skin of the face decreases in elasticity, leading to lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. If you want to improve the firmness and overall appearance of your skin without plastic surgery, consider nonsurgical facial skin tightening with ReFirme technology at Renew Beauty Med Spa & Wellness Center in Dallas and Frisco, TX. With advanced technology, nonsurgical skin tightening encourages the production of collagen and elastin in the treated areas so you can have firmer, healthier skin. During the assessment and consultation, we will be pleased to offer nonsurgical skin tightening to our Dallas and Frisco, TX patients wishing to tone the skin on their face without the recovery time and expense of a surgical facelift procedure. Schedule a consultation with our aesthetic team in Dallas or Frisco, TX to find out more about nonsurgical skin tightening.

Surgery for skin tightening, or “lift” procedures, like a facelift, remain the most effective option to improve sagging, loose skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening can help if you do not wish to undergo cosmetic surgery. Nonsurgical skin tightening procedures can be done on most areas of the face, and the best patients for this procedure:
- Are in good overall health
- Have mild to moderate skin looseness on the face
- Have lines or wrinkles on the face
- Want to enhance the health and appearance of their skin
To start the session, the skin being treated will be sanitized to remove any oils, cosmetics, and lotions. Local anesthesia options can be considered if you would prefer, but most patients find that any mild discomfort during the laser energy is temporary and manageable. As soon as you are ready, a handpiece with the ReFirme laser will be passed evenly over the skin multiple times for the most effective treatment. The energy prompts the body’s natural healing properties to produce collagen and elastin, which tightens and firms the skin. The procedure can take about 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the patient. After the session is complete, you will be able to leave and resume your daily activities.
What to Expect
After your nonsurgical skin tightening appointment, the treated areas may be mildly inflamed, numb, or red. This is expected and should clear up on its own within several days. During your consult, our aesthetic team will talk about the best ways to care for your skin after your session, like keeping the skin moisturized and protected from sun and environmental damage. Most patients will not have visible results immediately after the session. Since the collagen and elastin stimulation and production is a gradual process, you can have the total results of your treatment around 2 – 6 months after the procedure. However, these results should be long-lasting and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. You may require multiple treatments to get the ideal outcome. During your consultation, our aesthetic team will help you determine your personalized treatment plan based on your concerns and goals.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does nonsurgical skin tightening cost?
Depending on the size and amount of areas being treated, the cost of a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment will vary. Prior to your treatment, we will discuss your out-of-pocket costs and customize a specific treatment plan for your needs. We can also discuss payment options and where to find low-interest medical financing.
What is collagen?
Collagen is a protein-based tissue naturally produced by the body. Along with other functions, it works to help keep skin hydrated, elastic, and firm. However, through the natural aging process, the natural supply and production of collagen tend to slow down. This then leads to looser, thinner, and less elastic skin. With nonsurgical skin tightening, the production of collagen is stimulated to allow the skin to be healthier and firmer over time.
Is the procedure painful?
During a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment, you may experience a slight heating sensation but no major discomfort. If necessary, a local anesthetic may be applied to the area prior to your treatment, but this typically is not needed. If you are nervous about your treatment, talk to your technician about what to expect.
What can I expect after my treatment?
After a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment, you may experience some redness, temporary swelling, and/or numbness of the treated area. This will usually subside within a few days. The results of your treatment will continue to develop in the months following your procedure as collagen continues to be produced. Some patients may need several treatments before achieving their desired outcome.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects from a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment are rare and can depend on the type of technology used during the procedure. The most common side effects are redness, slight swelling, numbness, and loss of volume in the area. Talk to your technician before your treatment to learn more about any side effects to be aware of after your procedure.
