What is Laser Skin Tightening?

Laser skin tightening is a non-invasive procedure for patients with skin laxity and sagging skin on specific areas. The loss of collagen and elastin because of the natural aging process leads to sagging skin, which can negatively affect your confidence. We perform laser skin tightening using Venus Viva’s DiamondPolar applicator, a cutting-edge device that stimulates natural collagen production, reversing the signs of aging. This treatment helps you achieve smoother, tighter, and more youthful skin without harsh side effects or downtime.

Laser Skin Tightening Corrects:

  • Loss of elasticity because of aging
  • Loss of collagen and elastin fibers
  • Skin laxity and sagging skin tissues
  • Sagging jawline and prominent jowls
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

How it Works

Collagen and elastin are fibrous proteins that make your skin look firm, taut, and youthful. Collagen, in particular, holds your skin upright against the force of gravity. The gradual loss of collagen because of aging leads to sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Over time, as your body stops producing youthful levels of collagen, your facial skin starts sinking downwards, leading to jowls and a sagging jawline. Laser skin tightening works by stimulating natural collagen production.

Venus Viva’s DiamondPolar applicator delivers a combination of multi-polar radiofrequency energy and pulsed electro-magnetic fields into the targeted skin tissues, usually on the face and neck. Radiofrequency energy heats the deeper dermal layers to stimulate fibroblasts, whereas pulsed electro-magnetic fields release the growth factor FGF-2 to induce fibroblast proliferation, leading to increased collagen production. Consequently, your body produces a higher volume of collagen and elastin, making your skin look smoother, firmer, tighter, and more youthful.

Benefits of Laser Skin Tightening:

  • Non-invasive treatment — no needles, injections, or scars
  • Causes minimal discomfort during the treatment
  • No harsh side effects or complications after the treatment
  • Stimulates natural collagen production to reverse the signs of aging
  • Improves overall skin complexion and quality
  • Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Completely natural-looking results based on natural healing
  • No downtime after the treatment

Your Laser Skin Tightening Journey


Laser skin tightening is performed as a simple, in-office treatment that concludes within 30 minutes. The cosmetic provider adjusts the Venus Viva device according to your unique skin type and goals, following which the DiamondPolar applicator is used to deliver a combination of radiofrequency energy and pulsed electro-magnetic fields into the targeted areas. You may experience a warm sensation, but there’s no pain.


Most patients need 6 to 8 laser skin tightening sessions every 1 to 2 weeks for optimal results. However, your cosmetic provider will recommend the ideal treatment frequency based on your existing skin condition and goals. Please follow your physician’s recommendations.


Venus Viva laser skin tightening doesn’t cause major side effects. You may experience mild redness, swelling, irritation, and discomfort in the treatment areas, but these side effects should dissipate within a day or two. There is no downtime — you can resume your daily activities immediately. But you should avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a few days.


Laser skin tightening produces stellar results, reversing the signs of aging on your skin. Each session facilitates natural collagen production within your skin, making your skin look firm, taut, and youthful. The results improve after each session, with the final results visible after several months. You should also opt for regular maintenance treatments to sustain the results.
