Our Before & After Gallery
Tighten Skin Without Surgery
We create a customized treatment plan that considers your needs and goals, health history, and skin type to help you achieve the look you’re aiming for. Because your satisfaction is our priority, we are always transparent and only recommend treatments that are best suited for you.
Your Skin Tightening Treatment Options
As the years go by, our skin naturally loses some of its youthful resilience, and factors such as heredity, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can add to the challenge. We offer personalized, non-invasive options to firm up your skin and restore a smoother, more toned appearance to areas including:
- The skin around your eyes
- Your cheeks
- Your neck
- Your abdomen
- Your hips
- Your thighs
These are the areas most commonly treated with skin tightening procedures.
Sublime Skin Tightening
Sublime skin tightening technology is used to tighten facial skin. It is Health Canada and FDA-approved to tighten the jawline and reduce smile lines (nasolabial folds). Sublime cannot replace a facelift, but this non-invasive procedure is ideal for people who do not want surgery and have minor to moderate facial sagging.
The magic behind Sublime comes from the combination of infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency energy. Infrared light is delivered to the deeper layers of the skin. At the same time, bipolar radiofrequency energy creates heat at a low threshold, gently warming the skin without causing discomfort or unnecessary damage.
The fibroblasts in the skin—cells responsible for synthesizing collagen and connective tissue—are triggered as they are exposed to this combination of energy. The fibroblasts then create fresh new collagen to support a stronger and healthier structural framework for the skin.
Sublime is suitable for any skin type. We typically recommend a series of 5 treatments for optimal results, although most patients notice a visible difference after a single treatment.
You can expect little or no discomfort, and treatments are completed in about an hour. No downtime is required. We recommend a yearly maintenance treatment to further stimulate the skin to remodel collagen.
Dermapen® 4 Microneedling
Microneedling uses ultrafine needles to create micro-punctures in the skin. These controlled injuries trigger the body’s healing response, supporting the skin with increased blood flow and new collagen and elastin proteins—the two most important building blocks for healthy, resilient skin.
As the skin heals, these building blocks have a tightening effect that revives the treated areas’ appearance, texture, and elasticity. The treatment itself is not considered painful and is typically compared to an electric toothbrush vibrating against the skin.
Our Dermapen 4 microneedling device has built-in safeguards for an effective, sterile treatment. In addition, a personalized serum is used to protect the skin, allowing the device to glide smoothly over the face and neck.
Most patients need 3 to 4 half-hour treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart. Results are visible within days but may take weeks to finalize as the skin heals and remodels itself.
Under the rigorous medical supervision of Dr. Perhez Jaffer and Dr. Femida Kherani, Heights Laser Centre features a dedicated team, each member bringing years of specialized expertise in cosmetic and laser treatments. United by a passion for client care, our staff excels in personalized service, ensuring a warm, professional, and supportive experience for every patient.About Us
Credentials You Can Trust
Your Skin Tightening Consultation
When you visit us for your initial consultation, you will have ample time to explain your concerns, ask questions about the procedure you’re considering, and learn what to expect from your treatment and results.
At Heights Laser Centre, we do not believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. We create an individualized treatment plan for each patient based on their needs and body characteristics.
To determine whether skin tightening is the right option for you, we will examine the skin in your desired treatment area. If we determine you have too much loose or sagging skin to benefit from skin tightening treatments, we will recommend an alternative procedure or plan. Your satisfaction is our priority, and we will only recommend treatments that can achieve your desired results.
Before your treatment begins, a team member takes “before” photos of your problem areas. Capturing this baseline is essential for accurately tracking the success of your results over time. You can review these images as you progress with your transformation.
During your treatment, you will be comfortably reclined in a private room and free to read or check your phone. You may even take a nap—the procedure is that easy! Patients describe our skin tightening treatment as relaxing, like a warm, deep-tissue massage. You won’t experience any of the downtime associated with surgery, so you can get back to regular activities immediately after your treatment session.
Skin Tightening FAQ
What makes Sublime skin tightening different?
Sublime leverages a synergistic blend of infrared and radiofrequency energies to precisely target the skin’s foundational layers. This stimulates collagen renewal in a comfortable, noninvasive manner, ideal for addressing mild to moderate skin laxity.
How soon will I see results from skin tightening treatments?
Some patients may notice early results, but the most significant changes accumulate over all your sessions. You’ll see the full impact of your treatments shortly after the series concludes, as the skin continues to rejuvenate and tighten. For Dermapen 4 Microneedling, improvements appear within days and continue to improve over the following weeks.
How should I care for my skin after my treatment?
Beyond sun protection and following your physician’s personalized aftercare instructions, we recommend gentle skincare routines and hydration to support healing. Regular moisturizing and avoiding harsh chemicals or exfoliants will optimize your results and comfort.
From the moment you step through the door at Heights Laser Centre, you are not just a client—you are family. Safety isn’t just a protocol here; it’s a promise. In our relaxing, physician-led medical spa, where state-of-the-art technology meets decades of expertise, each treatment is an intersection of science and artistry, tailored just for you.
