Skin Resurfacing or Skin Tightening:
Which one is right for you?

Many treatments for skin resurfacing and skin tightening, such as fractional laser treatments

and facelifts, offer great results but are painful and need time to heal before seeing the

difference. Suppose you're looking for a treatment that leaves you radiant and offers beautiful

skin without any downtime. In that case, Morpheus 8 and Evoke are unique options to consider

because they are safe, effective, and will make your skin vibrant!

The Difference Between Skin Tightening and Skin Resurfacing

To make the right decision for your skin, it's essential to understand the difference between skin

resurfacing versus skin tightening. This is because both treatments achieve tighter skin but have

different application processes and methods


Skin tightening is used to target fat to tighten the skin around the neck and jawline, while

resurfacing is more suited for eliminating fine lines, wrinkles and creating an even skin tone.

Traditionally, skin resurfacing used lasers and light based technologies to generate selective

tissue targeted heat with subsequent production of new collagen.

In skin tightening procedures people have traditionally looked to plastic surgery to lift the skin

in the lower part of the face to eliminate jowls and tighten skin along the jawline and neck.
