Skin Tightening NYC | Spotlight on Ultherapy, RF Microneedling and PRP
Put simply, there’s never been a better time to consider nonsurgical skin tightening. So many options boast less recovery time, a quicker onset of rejuvenation and results that impress. The best of them are Ultherapy, RF Microneedling and Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP. In today’s post, we’ll give you a snapshot of these three gold-standard treatments for restoring a youthful appearance. Here’s more on Skin Tightening NYC:
What is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?
Before we discuss the difference between these three modalities, let’s discuss the similarities they share. In a nutshell, all three treatments spark a process of skin repair at the deeper layers of the skin. As a result, they all work to promote blood flow, cellular turnover, as well as collagen and elastin production under the skin. Specifically, it’s the collagen and elastin production that’s key for encouraging skin tightening. Essentially, collagen and elastin are a criss-cross network under the skin that achieve a tricky balance for the face. While collagen provides a sturdy structure for the face, elastin assures the skin’s elasticity — that’s how quickly it returns to its original shape. Since Ultherapy, RF Microneedling and PRP all work to rejuvenate collagen and elastin, they are great for restoring:
- Saggy skin
- Wrinkly skin
- Skin laxity
- Crepey skin
Now that we’ve established their similarities. Let’s drill down on their differences. Specifically, it’s how each treatment works to achieve these results that differs. Here’s more:
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared treatment for skin tightening. Using time-tested ultrasound, it deposits tiny amounts of energy to clearly-defined depths under the skin. It’s this highly-controlled and consistent delivery of energy that assures a safe, effective and truly customizable treatment. Additionally, Ultherapy is the only treatment to reach the SMAS layer of the skin (where a plastic surgeon would cut during a facelift). Further, soundwaves are able to bypass the surface of the skin entirely. As a result, this assures that the epidermis layer of the skin isn’t subject to any trauma. At the same time, a highly-effective process of repair is happening under the skin, in order to rejuvenate from the inside out.

RF Microneedling | Radiofrequency with Microneedling
RF Microneedling is a combination of two modalities. Separately, each treatment can accomplish a great deal. Specifically, Microneedling makes micro-injury to the surface of the skin, which sparks the body’s healing response. As a result, it works to diminish fine lines or wrinkles, reduce pore size, minimize scars, as well as restore uneven skin tone. On the other hand, Radiofrequency directs a gentle thermal energy to the dermal layer of the skin, in order to tighten skin. Radiofrequency alone has a tendency to disperse some of the energy in the outer layers of the skin. With the addition of Microneedling, it becomes a much more targeted and effective treatment for skin tightening. Specifically, as the skin is pierced, the RF energy is delivered through the microneedles to precise depths at an appropriate intensity. In addition, an adjustable needle depth makes it extremely simple to customize treatment to meet your needs.

Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP Skin Rejuvenation
PRP is the only one of the treatments that doesn’t rely on an energy modality. Its skin-tightening power comes from PRP injections combined with microneedling with PRP. Platelet-rich plasma is the protein-rich part of the blood, which is a growth factor designed to heal wounds. When strategically placed under the skin, PRP stimulates a process of skin repair that’s excellent for tightening the skin from the inside out. What’s more, PRP also works to heal the surface of the skin, resulting in great results if you’re looking to diminish wrinkles, restore skin imperfections and/or even out skin tone and texture.
