The older you get, the more likely you are to develop loose skin on the face and body. Some people find lax skin unflattering and feel it prematurely ages their appearance.
SkinOvation offers minimally and noninvasive skin tightening procedures that firm up loose skin for a younger-looking, more defined appearance. If you’re in South Asheville, Asheville, Buncombe County or Henderson County, book a consultation to discover how our proven treatments can rejuvenate your look.
What Is Skin Laxity?
Skin laxity or looseness is part of the natural aging process. With age, skin produces lower levels of collagen and elastin, the proteins that give skin its firmness. This causes skin to become thin, sag and droop.
Loose skin is most likely to appear in the following areas:
- Under-eye area
- Upper arms
In the case of severe skin laxity, especially in the midsection, it can cause rashes, chafing and irritation.

Skin Tightening Treatments
These skin tightening procedures can address loose skin on the face and neck, including the delicate under-eye area. Some may also be suitable for the upper chest.
Dermal fillers are an effective, temporary solution to treat loose skin below the eyes and cheeks. They’re injected below the skin to plump up your face for a firmer, more youthful look.
Most fillers consist of a hyaluronic acid gel solution that works immediately and lasts from 6 months to 1 year. Some fillers also contain collagen or biodegradable microparticles that work gradually to facilitate long-term collagen growth.
At SkinOvation, we work with a range of leading dermal filler brands, including
- Sculptra Aesthetics
Dermal fillers are an excellent option for clients who wish to restore volume loss or enhance their facial features in addition to addressing loose skin.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure that uses a handheld device tipped with tiny needles. The device is stamped over the skin, creating superficial injuries that promote collagen growth. The increase in collagen production results in firmer skin, especially with repeat treatments.
This procedure works best on the face, neck, upper chest and under-eye area. It’s ideal for patients with mild-to-moderate loose skin, and has the added benefit of treating hyperpigmentation and acne scars. Many clients choose to undergo this treatment every few months for best results.
PDO Max Threads
PDO Max Threads are dissolvable sutures that lift loose skin on the face and neck. Inserted through tiny incisions in the hairline, these threads instantly create lift while simultaneously triggering long-term collagen growth. While the threads dissolve after 6–12 months, the increased collagen production can continue for years.
PDO threads are ideal for people with mild-to-moderate loose skin who wish to quickly improve their appearance with a single in-office procedure.
Silhouette Instalift combines the skin-firming benefits of a thread lift with unique microcone technology. Interspersed along the length of each thread, these microcones grip and lift the skin while stimulating ongoing tissue and volume restoration. The threads dissolve after 12–18 months.
This procedure is ideal for men and women aged 30–50 experiencing mild-to-moderate signs of aging in their cheek, nose and mouth area, and who wish to rejuvenate their appearance without undergoing surgery.
Morpheus8 RF Microneedling
Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatment. It combines traditional microneedling with RF energy, which heats subdermal layers of the skin to encourage long-term collagen production.
Morpheus8 is effective for mild-to-moderate loose skin and suitable for use on the face, neck, upper chest, under-eye area, underarms and abdomen. Safe for all skin tones, it can fade acne scars and hyperpigmentation to further brighten and smooth your skin.
Developed by Neauvia, Plasma IQ is a breakthrough procedure that specifically addresses loose skin in the eyelid area. This technology delivers microbeams of controlled plasma energy, stimulating collagen production to smooth and firm the skin.
Plasma IQ is ideal for people aged 22 and up with loose skin on the eyelids, but it can tighten mildly loose skin almost anywhere on the face or body. Plasma IQ can also address age spots, acne scars, fine lines, stretch marks and skin tags.
