As we get older, our skin loses its ability to replenish and repair itself. The production of collagen and elastin protein slows down, and our firm, radiant skin becomes compromised over time. More severe cases of loose, sagging skin around the face can contribute to the wrinkling process. In addition, rapid weight loss can exasperate issues with sagging skin all over the body.

Many Vancouver patients prefer non-surgical solutions to tighten skin. We offer numerous safe, effective non-surgical solutions at Heights Laser Centre.


The Sublime® skin-tightening treatment is a quick and convenient option to treat loose, sagging skin. Sublime® yields immediate results and causes no pain or discomfort to the patient. In addition, the procedure is good for all skin types.

This non-invasive treatment works by reversing the signs of aging using a proven combination of infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency energy to remodel the deep dermal layer of the skin. The process stimulates new collagen growth, which helps to maintain healthier, tighter skin.

Sublime® is most commonly used in areas where skin aging and sagging are very prevalent, such as the eyes, cheeks, and neck. Patients will notice an immediate difference when their treatment is complete: smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin.

VelaShape II™ is another non-surgical skin-tightening option we offer. Like Sublime®, VelaShape II™ uses multiple techniques such as bipolar radiofrequency energy and infrared light to improve aging skin. Where this product differs from Sublime is that it is primarily used on the body rather than the face. It also incorporates mechanical massage.

The tissue manipulation provided by the massage, in conjunction with the heat applied, helps to smooth out the skin by reducing cellulite while also tightening up laxity. This treatment is great for use on the abdomen, hips, and thighs.

VelaShape II™ is effective as a stand-alone treatment but can also be used in tandem with other treatments. There is no pain or discomfort for Vancouver patients, and a series of about five treatments is recommended for maximum results.
