Tips for Tightening Your Skin Without Surgery: 10 Secrets for Tight, Glowing Skin

We all know that feeling of confidence that comes from having fresh, tight skin. Most of us also know how it can feel hard to get excited to look in the mirror after noticing loose, droopy skin. If you’re facing the hard truth that your skin could use a little help in the tightening department, there’s plenty you can do to stop drooping in its tracks. Take a look at 10 ways to get ultra-tight skin without surgery.

1. Drink More Water

While there’s no shortage of advice out there telling you to drink more water, it’s still important to cover this tip! Hydrating your skin helps to improve elasticity. That means your skin can bounce back more easily. Make a plan for healthy hydration habits the baseline for your skin-tightening attack plan.

2. HydraFacials

The HydraFacial has become the darling of the beauty industry for a good reason. Performed in four steps, the HydraFacial cleanses, exfoliates, extracts impurities, and infuses hydration using deep-reaching serums. The exfoliation portion of the treatment removes dead skin cells to rev up cell turnover and production. The result is smoother, tighter skin with fewer lines and wrinkles.

3. Injectables: BOTOX

If you’re impatient when it comes to skin tightening, skip right to injectables. The great thing about injectables is that you can use them to see fast results while also doing some long-term work for improving skin firmness and elasticity in the background. BOTOX is a great option if you want to stop seeing lines that create a sagging appearance. It works by blocking nerve signals to muscles that are responsible for lines and creases.

4. Fillers: JUVÉDERM

If you’re looking to restore volume and youthfulness, nothing gets the job done like fillers. Fillers can do what topical products can’t because they actually address the volume loss that occurs due to hormonal and structural changes within the face and body. While BOTOX keeps things tight by preventing your facial muscles from making sagging or furrowing motions, fillers actually fill in areas like hollow cheeks or loose chin borders. Fillers and injectables can be used together for more noticeable, refined results.

5. Facial Exercises

We know that “working our muscles” can keep our bodies tight. However, most people never think to work their facial muscles to keep everything together. In a 2018 study, researchers found that 30 minutes of facial exercise done daily over a span of 20 weeks showed promise for improving facial appearance among middle-aged women. You don’t need a personal trainer to start working on facial tone. Look up some simple videos online to start working up a sweat using your mug muscles!

6. Fibroblast Skin Tightening

It’s hard to top Fibroblast Skin Tightening if you want to see real results using a treatment that specifically targets tightness. Fibroblast Skin Tightening is a non-surgical treatment that uses a device instead of a scalpel to help your skin look tighter and brighter. Using a special tool, the upper dermal layer of your skin sustains “heat damage” that spurs collagen and elastin production. If you’ve been doing your research, you already know that the biggest cause of sagging skin is the major slowdown of collagen production that occurs as we age. Fibroblast Skin Tightening essentially resets your skin to kick the collagen production of your youth back into high gear. People who undergo this gentle, noninvasive procedure enjoy six to 12 weeks of ramped-up collage production after each treatment. As a result, they begin to see tight, smooth skin in the mirror. While this treatment is commonly used to tighten the face, it can be used on the neck, arms, hands, knees, and stomach. Many people use it specifically to target issues like jowls, crow’s feet, sunspots, and stretch marks.

7. VI Peels

The VI Peel is a powerhouse for skin rejuvenation! Famed for reversing signs of aging, this peel provides benefits at the cellular level. It targets old, tired skin cells while infusing vitamins and essential acids into the skin to ramp up collagen and elastin production. With your cells powering up collagen and elastin levels, you’re going to see tighter, newer skin that reminds you of what your face used to look like years ago. The VI Peel is a restorative skin peel that tackles age-related wrinkles while supporting underlying skin health.

8. Spray Tanning

Let’s add what can be called a “cheat item” to the list! While a spray tan won’t create any structural changes to your skin, it can make your skin look much tighter and healthier in a snap. Don’t underestimate the power of a fresh glow if you want to make your skin look tighter immediately. When you get a professional, high-quality spray tan done by an expert, you’re also getting proper moisturizing and nourishment during the process. There’s no easier way to look tighter, brighter, and healthier all over your body. Many people find that a spray tan helps to bring out natural contours that shape the face for a tighter look.

9. Microneedling

Microneedling can do wonders for aging skin. While it’s famed for reducing wrinkles and scarring, microneedling is also great for tightening. In fact, the alternative name for microneedling is collagen induction therapy! During treatment, tiny sterile needles puncture the skin to create “mini damage” that activates collagen growth. Once that collagen kicks in after a series of visits, you can expect smoother, firmer skin to become noticeable.

10. Auditing Your Skin Routine

Many people are spending tons of money on drugstore and cosmetic-counter skin products. However, they’re not always sure why they’re using the products they’re using. A great way to ensure that your routine is actually helping to tighten your skin is to have it audited by an esthetician. Looking at the ingredients in the products you’re using, a skin expert can tell you where you’re going right, where there’s room for improvement, and where you may be sabotaging skin tightness.
