Skin Tightening in Staten Island, NY
Loose or sagging skin is something that can occur as part of natural aging, but also because of other factors such as sun damage or weight loss. As the skin loses elasticity, it may not snap back as quickly, leading to a sagging appearance on the face or other areas.
Skin tightening treatments, particularly non-invasive ones, have become a sought-after solution for addressing this concern. These treatments use advanced technology to help tighten and lift the skin, ensuring a smoother and more youthful appearance without the need for surgical intervention.
At Still Well Med Spa in Staten Island, NY, we emphasize inner wellness and its reflection on the exterior. In our practice, we offer many different treatments for skin tightening to accentuate your natural beauty and foster overall well-being.
A Closer Look at Loose, Thin, and Sagging Skin
Loose, thin, and sagging skin can be attributed to various factors that influence our skin’s structure and resilience. Over time, collagen and elastin, the primary proteins responsible for maintaining skin’s firmness, can begin to diminish, leading to reduced skin elasticity.
External factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and environmental pollutants can further exacerbate these changes. At our medspa, we have a deep understanding of these skin challenges, which has allowed us to find some of the best skin tightening treatments available today to effectively address this concern.
What Areas Can We Treat With Skin Tightening Treatments?
Skin tightening treatments are versatile and can be applied to various areas of the body that exhibit signs of sagging or laxity. For those looking to address abdominal concerns, stomach skin tightening is an effective option to achieve a smoother and more toned appearance.

What Skin Tightening Treatments Do We Offer?
Genius™ RF Microneedling by Lutronic®
Genius™ RF Microneedling by Lutronic® is a treatment that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling techniques. This technology harnesses the power of RF to amplify the benefits traditionally associated with microneedling, offering a potent solution for various skin concerns, including loose skin tightening.
How Does RF Microneedling Work for Loose Skin?
RF microneedling delivers targeted RF energy deep into the skin’s layers. This energy heats the underlying tissues, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. As these vital proteins increase, the skin becomes firmer and more elastic, leading to effective skin tightening. The microneedling component further enhances the treatment by promoting skin repair and regeneration.

PDO Threads are a revolutionary skin tightening treatment that involves the use of biodegradable threads to lift and firm the skin. Made from polydioxanone, these threads have been used in medical suturing for years and have now found their place in the aesthetic world for their impressive skin-tightening capabilities.
How Do PDO Threads Work for Skin Tightening?
PDO Threads are carefully inserted into the subdermal layer of the skin using fine needles. Once in place, they act as a scaffold, lifting the skin and promoting natural collagen production around the thread. Over time, as the threads naturally dissolve, they leave behind a network of collagen, resulting in prolonged skin firmness and tightness.

- Stimulates natural collagen and elastin production, enhancing skin’s elasticity and youthful appearance
- Minimally-invasive treatment with reduced recovery time compared to surgical facelifts
