Laser Skin Tightening in London
Centre for Surgery offer state of the art skin tightening treatments using Fotona laser and the T-runner scanner at our clinic at 106 Crawford Street in London to address skin laxity and cellulite without the need for invasive surgery. Skin laxity most commonly develops after pregnancy and childbirth or significant weight loss.
The Fotona T-runner is a robotic scanner designed for the precise delivery of laser pulses with optimal speed accuracy and the ability to target either superficial or deep skin laxity thus leading to an improvement in collagen remodelling.
Reasons to have laser skin tightening
- Skin laxity affecting the body or face
- Treatment of certain types of cellulite
- After weight loss surgery

Non invasive laser skin tightening
A number of radio frequency devices have traditionally been used to treat mild to moderate skin laxity however there are a number of problems with radio frequency treatment. RF energy penetration into the deeper tissue layers is somewhat slow and may penetrate deeper than intended and therefore difficult to control. Skin tightening using non-invasive devices requires sufficiently high superficial skin temperatures for a defined period of time to reduce skin laxity. With RF devices it is commonly not possible to heat the superficial skin to the right temperature for the required period of time due to the risk of skin burns. As a result non-invasive radio frequency devices result in treatment that is carried out at either very low and ineffective treatment parameters or at levels where the risk of skin burns becomes a potential risk.
The development of the non-ablative V-SMOOTH technology means that laser energy can be applied to the patient’s skin in a very controlled manner using a specialised robotic T-runner scanner.
Laser skin tightening with the Fotona SP Dynamis has the advantage of being an entirely non-invasive treatment with no anesthesia, incisions or downtime. Laser skin tightening treatments require a series of sessions to achieve optimal results and can be carried out on both the body and face.
Facial rejuvenation treatments with Fotona SP Dynamis
Fotona 4D is a 4 in 1 skin tightening treatment specailly designed to address mild skin laxity of the face and neck without the need for anti wrinkle injections or dermal fillers. SmoothEye is a laser eyelid tightening treatment which is entirely non-invasive to address mild and moderate degrees of eyelid skin laxity. LipLase works great for patients who desire subtle lip plumping without need for lip fillers.
Tightsculpting is a non-invasive laser fat reduction treatment which can be used on any part of the body with localised fat deposits. The Nd:YAG laser scanner achieves deep bulk tissue heating to produce localised destruction of superficial fat cells in an entirely non-invasive manner.
Morpheus8 Skin Tightening - minimally invasive treatment
For patients with more significant degrees of skin laxity, Centre for Surgery offer skin tightening using the Morpheus8 microneedling device. Minimally invasive radiofrequency skin tightening using the Inmode BodyTite platform has revolutionised the treatment of mild to moderate degrees of skin laxity without the need for more invasive excisional surgery like a tummy tuck or facelift. Radiofrequency treatments such as FaceTite and BodyTite can be performed safely and effectively with only a local anaesthetic and with no requirement to have a general anaesthetic.
Morpheus8 for skin tightening
Morpheus8 is the most exciting development in fractional radiofrequency microneedling. The Morpheus8 device is the latest generation of fractional RF microneedling with full control over needle depth adjustment and the level of energy delivered through the Morpheus8 handpiece consisting of 24 precision microneedles. The FaceTite / AccuTite/ BodyTite / CelluTite procedure is performed first for ‘inside-out’ skin tightening followed by the application of Morpheus8 for ‘outside-in’ skin tightening creating an impressive ‘thermal sandwich effect’.
The tiny pins of the Morpheus8 device are able to penetrate deep enough into the skin to impart controlled thermal energy via the micropins to induce contraction of collagen and elastin. The Morpheus8 procedure does not require any incisions and there is no need for sutures. The procedure can be performed effectively with the prior application of topical local anaesthetic cream to permit a pain-free procedure.
Minimally invasive skin tightening devices commonly combined with Morpheus8:
FaceTite – a bipolar radiofrequency device for treating skin laxity of the lower face and neck
AccuTite – a miniature form of FaceTite ideal for treating skin laxity of the upper face and eyelids
BodyTite – can address mild to moderate skin laxity of the abdomen, flanks, back, chest, upper arms and inner thighs
CelluTite – ideal treatment for cellulite of the thighs and buttocks

What does laser skin tightening involve?
What can laser skin tightening be used for?Laser skin tightening is designed to tighten and smoothen the surface of your skin including both deep and superficial skin tightening. Laser treatment can also target superficial fat cells leading to a slimmer contour in virtually part of the body.
Will I lose weight with laser skin tightening?Although laser skin tightening treatment leads to superficial tightening and volumetric changes in the organisation of deeper tissues leading to reduced dimensions, laser skin tightening does not lead to significant changes in weight.
