Sagging skin is one of the telltale signs of aging. Now, you can do something about it. At Le Parlour NYC Laser Spa, we offer the Aura™ Deep Fractional RF skin resurfacing device. This system not only improves the surface of the skin but also stimulates the renewal of skin tightness and elasticity. Schedule your appointment at our Flatiron office today to experience this treatment firsthand.
Why Does Sagging Skin Occur?
As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin – the essential proteins our bodies need to maintain skin tightness and elasticity. Other factors such as smoking, frequent sun exposure, and an unhealthy diet can also contribute to sagging, causing premature aging. While the aging process can’t be stopped, its visual characteristics can be forestalled by improving collagen and elastin production.
Why Aura™ For Skin Tightening?
Aura™ features a combination of radiofrequency and tiny needle technology. Together, these two systems stimulate collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production on the surface and deep within your skin. As your skin naturally heals itself after the treatment, skin becomes tighter and more youthful.
Skin Tightening With Aura™
An Aura™ treatment involves the application of the device against the surface of the skin. During the procedure, the needles of the device penetrate the skin, and radiofrequency energy is released.
These actions stimulate natural healing both on the surface and under the surface of the skin. Some discomfort may be felt during this process, but treatments are typically described as tolerable.
The main purpose of Aura™ is to help your body help itself. Over time, the microtrauma created by the needles of the device is healed by your body using collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. When fully healed, you will notice that your skin has become tighter and more youthful. Several sessions may be needed to get the best results.

Skin Tightening FAQs
What is a skin tightening procedure?
A skin tightening procedure is a non-surgical treatment that uses various techniques to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, resulting in a tighter, more youthful appearance. Some common techniques include radiofrequency, ultrasound, and laser treatments. These procedures can be performed on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, and abdomen.
Why choose Aura RF Skin Tightening?
Aura RF Skin Tightening is a premier technology for skin tightening due to its advanced radiofrequency technology. The Aura RF device delivers precise radiofrequency energy to the skin, heating the deeper layers of the skin and stimulating the production of new collagen. This results in tighter, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin. The Aura RF treatment is non-invasive, painless, and requires no downtime, making it a popular choice for those seeking a quick and effective solution to skin laxity.
How does Aura RF Skin Tightening work?
The Aura RF device uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating the production of new collagen. The heat also causes the existing collagen fibers to contract, resulting in tighter, firmer skin. The Aura RF treatment is non-invasive and painless, with no downtime required. Most patients can return to their regular activities immediately after the treatment.
Is Aura RF Skin Tightening safe?
Yes, Aura RF Skin Tightening is a safe and effective treatment for skin tightening. The radiofrequency energy used by the Aura RF device has been extensively tested and is FDA-approved for use in cosmetic procedures. As with any cosmetic treatment, it is important to choose a qualified and experienced provider to ensure safe and effective results.
How many Aura RF Skin Tightening treatments will I need?
The number of Aura RF Skin Tightening treatments required for optimal results will depend on the severity of your skin concerns and your individual goals. Most patients see noticeable improvement after just one treatment, but a series of treatments may be recommended for optimal results. The treatments are typically spaced 2-4 weeks apart, and maintenance treatments may be needed to maintain results.
What can I expect during an Aura RF Skin Tightening treatment?
During an Aura RF Skin Tightening treatment, a handheld device will be passed over the targeted area, delivering radiofrequency energy to the skin. You may feel a mild warming sensation as the energy is applied, but the treatment is generally painless. The treatment typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
What can I expect after an Aura RF Skin Tightening treatment?
After the treatment, you may experience some redness or mild swelling in the treated area, but these side effects should subside within a few hours. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment. Results may be visible immediately after the treatment, but optimal results will be visible after a few weeks to a few months as the new collagen production takes effect.
What areas can be treated with Aura RF Skin Tightening?
Aura RF Skin Tightening can be used to treat loose or sagging skin on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. It can also be used to tighten skin around the eyes, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Aura RF Skin Tightening is a versatile treatment that can address a variety of skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, and laxity.
Is there any downtime after Aura RF Skin Tightening?
No, there is no downtime required after an Aura RF Skin Tightening treatment. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment. However, it is recommended to avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures for a few days after the treatment. It is also important to apply sunscreen to the treated area to protect it from sun damage.
Are there any side effects of Aura RF Skin Tightening?
Most patients experience no side effects after an Aura RF Skin Tightening treatment. However, some patients may experience mild redness or swelling in the treated area, which usually subsides within a few hours. In rare cases, some patients may experience temporary numbness or tingling in the treated area. These side effects are usually temporary and resolve on their own.
Who is a good candidate for Aura RF Skin Tightening?
Aura RF Skin Tightening is an ideal treatment for those who want to improve the appearance of loose or sagging skin, but are not ready or willing to undergo surgery. It is a safe and effective treatment for most skin types and can be customized to meet each patient’s individual needs. Good candidates for Aura RF Skin Tightening are in good overall health, have realistic expectations about the results, and are committed to maintaining their results with proper skincare and sun protection.
How long do the results of Aura RF Skin Tightening last?
The results of Aura RF Skin Tightening can last for several months to several years, depending on the individual’s skin condition and the number of treatments received. While the treatment stimulates the production of new collagen, the natural aging process continues, and additional treatments may be needed to maintain the results. A healthy lifestyle, including proper skincare and sun protection, can also help prolong the results.
What other treatments can be combined with Aura RF Skin Tightening?
Aura RF Skin Tightening can be combined with other non-invasive treatments, such as facial fillers and Botox, to achieve a more comprehensive rejuvenation of the face. The combination of treatments can address multiple skin concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and loss of volume. Your skincare professional can recommend a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs and goals.
