SkinTyte vs. ThermiSmooth vs Morpheus8: Everything You Need to Know About Skin Tightening! Kansas City, MO

Have you dreamed about tightening your skin, reversing lines, wrinkles and laxity, without undergoing surgery? Are you interested in trying a non-invasive skin tightening treatment but don’t know where to start? You’re in good company! There are so many technologies on the market right now, so we understand if you’re confused about which treatment is right for you. Here at aNū, we offer several types of skin tightening in the greater Kansas City area, including SkinTyte™, ThermiSmooth™ and Morpheus8 Microneedling RF. Here’s a breakdown of each skin tightening treatment, and how they may work for you.


Suitable for all areas of the body and all skin tones, SkinTyte uses non-invasive pulses of infrared light to stimulate your skin’s natural healing response, triggering the growth of new collagen and elastin, the building blocks of youthful-looking skin. Since there’s no invasive measures with SkinTyte, there’s no downtime. For your best results, we recommend an initial treatment package of six treatments, administered every one to two weeks, followed by maintenance treatments two to four times a year. SkinTyte is ideal for people with mild skin laxity who are happy with natural-looking, gradual improvements in the months following treatment, as your skin produces new collagen.


If your skin tightening goals are focused on the face, specifically the eyes and mouth, you may get the results you want with ThermiSmooth. This gentle skin tightening therapy stimulates your skin with radiofrequency (RF) energy to help soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. Similar to SkinTyte, there’s no invasive measure or downtime with ThermiSmooth. For your best results, we recommend a series of three to six treatments.

Morpheus8 Microneedling RF – our favorite!

If you’re interested in achieving skin tightening along with other textural improvements, such as smoothing away acne scars or stretch marks, we recommend Morpheus8, a cutting-edge microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy device. Suitable for almost all skin types, Morpheus8 stimulates skin renewal from deep within, revealing stronger, tighter, more youthful looking skin anywhere you need it.

Unlike Skintyte and ThermiSmooth, Morpheus8 involves a bit of social downtime as your skin renews itself. This minimally-invasive treatment penetrates your skin with tiny needles, creating thousands of treatment channels that result in mild redness and healing. This healing response in your skin is what you want! It’s a sign that you are producing new collagen and elastin, the foundation for tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin!

Generally speaking, Morpheus8 is capable of providing a wider range of benefits for your skin, including smoothing textural irregularities like scars, reducing pore size, brightening dullness and fading dark spots. So, if you are hoping to tighten skin and enjoy overall improvement in tone and texture — and you don’t mind a few days of redness and mild swelling — Morpheus8 may be the perfect treatment for you.
