Skin Tightening

RefinedMD | Los Gatos + Greater San Jose

Skin laxity is a natural part of aging and can be attributed to lost collagen and elastin, genetics, sun damage, and gravity. You’re not 25 anymore—but that doesn’t mean you can’t look your best at any age. Interventions are available to promote skin tightening, including Thermage FLX and Ultherapy. These are non-surgical treatments designed to be repeated over the years and can help you delay surgery. Enjoy fantastic non-surgical results with no downtime. These skin tightening procedures are available in the most popular areas, such as the face, as well as more challenging places such as the arms, inner thighs, buttocks, and neck. Get in touch with RefinedMD today and make it your new, gorgeous reality.

The most innovative treatment options are cumulative. Results need to be maintained and build upon each other. Today’s non-invasive, in-office, comfortable procedures rely on heat, radiofrequency, and ultrasound technology to create controlled damage to the underlying tissue in order to rebuild and remodel collagen. The end results are tighter, smoother, more youthful skin as organized collagen bundles together to turn back the clock.

Which skin tightening treatment is right for you? Find out during a consultation at RefinedMD. No one approach is better than another, and creating the best action plan for you requires an assessment of your skin and goals. Some treatments require one treatment per year for optimal results while others call for an initial six series of treatments.

Dubbed a mini-lift, Ultherapy is an ultrasound treatment used to reverse the effects of gravity. It stimulates the body’s regenerative response and is best for under the chin, the neck, décolletage, and eyebrow area. Christie Brinkley is a fan (PS: we are so not promising you’ll look like Christie Brinkley. But you’ll still look stunning). Learn more about Ultherapy.

Thermage FLX

Tighter skin can be yours. The postponement of aging, or “prejuvenation,” is best accomplished by taking an active stance in the fight against aging in the ’30s and ’40s when the collagen and elastin begin to break down leading to the appearance of fine lines. Thermage FLX is the newest generation of radiofrequency skin tightening and is ideal for the delicate skin around the eyes, lower face, dreaded jowls, the abdomen, and the pesky wrinkles and loose skin above the knees. All the situps in the world can’t tighten loose skin, but Thermage FLX can! Learn more about Thermage FLX.

J-Plasma Skin Tightening

Are you looking for tighter, firmer skin without the risks, recovery period, and incisions associated with surgery? Renuvion J-Plasma is a revolutionary technology that allows tissue to be heated at very high temperatures in less than one second to leave optimal results without leaving burns or blisters, and having virtually no downtime. Thanks to the novel use of RF energy and helium-based plasma technology, J-Plasma can heat the under-surface of the skin and fibroseptal network to ensure prime contraction. The results? Skin that looks like it’s had a lift but without any need to remove skin.


Exilis works by using heat and ultrasound energy applied to the face or body. It penetrates deep into the skin to shrink fat cells while simultaneously stimulating collagen growth. With Exilis, you can combing skin tightening with targeted fat reduction.


Go to “Infini” and beyond with this radiofrequency tech that can tackle saggy skin, skin texture trouble, and wrinkles. A 3-D approach causes tissue volumization by combining fractional radiofrequency with Microneedling.

ThermiSmooth and ThermiTight

This technology is designed for the face and body and works by using radiofrequency to heat the skin, causing collagen shrinkage for a tighter, smoother appearance. Your body is producing new collagen during the appointment to fill in dimples and wrinkles caused by cellulite. Collagen continues to surge in production following the session.


This treatment is designed exclusively for the body to treat cellulite, lax skin, and stubborn fat. The abs, hips, thighs, and back are all notoriously tough to keep looking young and tight. With radiofrequency to work these challenging areas, you’ll enjoy fast tightening, shrinking of the area, and a collagen boost for plumpness (in all the right ways).

Thread Facelift

Say hello to your new, little friend. A thread facelift is a non-surgical alternative to the full facelift, and works by gently placing absorbable threads into the skin to immediately lift sagging areas. Enjoy an instant, pain-free facelift with no down time. The threads aren’t barbed like old-school thread facelifts, but do have tiny little cones that “puff out” to further enhance your lift.
