Conveniently located to serve New York City, Tribeca, and The Upper East Side

Spring is a time for renewal and rejuvenation, not just for nature, but also your personal health and wellness. With all of the awakening from the cold winter months happening around us,  it’s a great time for you to consider how you can reveal a younger, more radiant looking you heading into summer with facial contouring and skin tightening services.

Whether due to the natural aging process or a shift in weight loss or gain, we can see changes in the contour and even the shape of our face. One reason we see this is that as we age, the production of collagen and elastin begins to slow, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and a loss of facial volume. Thankfully, due to the latest medical advances, there are a variety of non-invasive treatments to reduce the appearance of these unwanted signs of aging with little to no downtime.

Non-Surgical Facial Contouring and Skin Tightening Options

The goal of facial contouring and skin tightening is to accentuate the appearance and shape of your facial features, such as your cheekbones, temples, nose and jawline. One of the most popular avenues to take when addressing these areas are fillers, as you can inject them into the wrinkles, folds, and hollows of the face, creating a smoother and more contoured shape. However, there are a plethora of other non-surgical options to help you achieve the desired look.


Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm and Voluma, help restore the volume and elasticity we naturally begin to lose with age. These fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that’s responsible for helping your skin maintain moisture and keeping your skin plump.

Dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve facial symmetry and contours, and add volume to sunken areas of the face—such as cheeks, temples, or undereye regions. Using dermal filler to restore volume in these areas can lift the lower face and give definition to the brows and eye area.

These fillers will metabolize over time. An experienced provider will help determine which dermal filler is right for you based on your problem areas.

BOTOX® is an injectable neurotoxin that helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the surrounding muscles. It’s commonly used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, and more. Although results can be seen as early as three days following your appointment, maximum results generally take around 14 days. The effects of Botox usually last around 3 to 4 months.

For best results, we can pair dermal fillers with Botox to address multiple concerns in a single appointment.

Forma Facial Skin Tightening

Forma treatments utilize radiofrequency energy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin’s subdermal layers. This results in improvements to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, and texture on the face, neck, and chest.

Malika  Sloan, Medical Aesthetician at Tribeca MedSpa, shared, “My clients have been loving forma lately! It’s a super comfortable procedure with zero downtime. Most say it’s even relaxing. Perfect for the summer, when most of us are spending more time outdoors and have unavoidable sun exposure. This treatment is safe even if you’re taking those summer trips! For best results, I recommend 8 sessions spaced 5-10 days apart. Most clients start noticing change after their 4th or 5th session. I love forma for treating jowls and nasolabial folds!” 

Kybella Double Chin Treatment

Kybella uses a series of synthetic deoxycholic acid injections to eliminate fat cells along the jawline and under the chin, resulting in a more defined jawline and chin profile. This non-surgical treatment is FDA-approved to destroy fat cells without the need for more invasive surgical options, such as liposuction.

We recommend starting with 2 to 4 treatments, scheduled one month apart. Depending on the amount and distribution of the submental fat, some may require as many as 6 treatments to achieve the desired results.

Morpheus8 RF Microneedling

Microneedling with Morpheus8 RF technology combines the benefits of traditional microneedling and radiofrequency energy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin at a much deeper level than microneedling alone. This results in drastic improvements to fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, skin tone, and texture.

Morpheus8 treatments are especially helpful when addressing the areas around the eyes and lips, due to the small microneedling tip. However, the device can also address the entire face and neck. For best results, we recommend starting with a minimum of three treatments scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart. While downtime will depend on how aggressive the treatment settings are, you may experience some mild redness and swelling for 2 to 4 days following the treatment.
