We all want to look younger. Smoother skin with fewer wrinkles and glowing, healthy skin is a goal many people share, yet you don’t want it to look unnatural.

The good news is that cosmetic treatments have come a long way in the last several decades. You no longer have to choose between accepting undereye bags or having that “going through a wind tunnel” look. Today’s procedures are comfortable, easy, and natural-looking, with a quick recovery time.

Among the best ones we offer at Sobel Skin are the MyEllevate FaceTite, Vivace/microneedling, Morpheus, and Sublime. If you’re looking for skin rejuvenation and tightening treatments, you’ll find what you need from the facial treatments Manhattan relies on for a youth-restoring complexion.

Let’s look at the facial treatments they offer, how they work, what to expect, and the benefits you can experience.

MyEllevate and FaceTite

MyEllevate and FaceTite are the best treatments for eliminating fine lines and wrinkles while tightening saggy skin. Each works well on its own, but they work even better together, helping to refine your visage while maintaining a natural appearance.

MyEllevate is a minimally invasive threading technique that supports the underlying muscles and glands of the jawline. By weaving the suture thread through the muscles using tiny incisions in the skin and then pulling the thread tight, your aesthetician can restore a natural, youthful look to your aging jawline.

FaceTite complements the above procedure by using simple heat to coagulate fat and tighten skin across your entire face. Using heat generated by radio waves, it works quickly and lasts around five years.

Both treatments offer relatively easy recovery. FaceTite may cause redness, swelling, or bruising, but you should be able to return to normal activity – exercise included – within three to five days. MyEllevate may also cause swelling and bruising, and you’ll need to wear a chin strap for a few days. However, you should recover within four days or so.

Vivace® Microneedling

Vivace is a more advanced microneedling treatment. This exceptional treatment combines microneedling, radiofrequency (RF), and LED light therapy to deliver remarkable results. Vivace is designed to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections while firming and lifting sagging skin, restoring a more youthful appearance.

RF technology accelerates collagen production, yielding rapid and visible outcomes. Paired with LED light therapy, which reduces redness and speeds up the healing process, Vivace offers a comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation. The treatment’s gold-tipped microneedles ensure the efficient delivery of nourishing serums, further enhancing its overall effectiveness.

Most patients find Vivace laser treatment to be virtually painless, and the expedited results allow for a quick return to daily activities. With just one treatment, changes in your skin are apparent, and with three treatments, desired results are typically achieved. For the best results, it’s advisable to refrain from wearing makeup for at least a day after the procedure. Direct sun exposure should be avoided for a minimum of 24 hours, as well as strenuous activities. Thanks to Vivace’s advanced technology, results are almost immediate, enabling many patients to confidently resume their daily routines the same evening with rejuvenated skin.


A combination of microneedling and radiofrequency energy, Morpheus8 successfully stimulates collagen and elastin production at deep layers of skin. This inside-out renewal leads to a more even skin tone, reduces the appearance of acne scarring, and treats excessive sweating, all with only a few treatments and a few weeks of overall recovery time.

Patients who undergo this treatment often experience fantastic results. Tighter and more even skin tone marry with fine lines, wrinkle reduction, and less pitting from acne. It works on most areas of the face and combinations of areas.


Using radio waves and infrared technology, Sublime is an excellent noninvasive treatment to stimulate collagen production. As the body’s structural tissue, collagen is critical for keeping your skin tight and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. More collagen also leads to more of that healthy glow.

You can use Sublime to target specific areas – cheeks, jaw, neck, and forehead – or take a more encompassing approach by treating the entire face, depending on your needs. The results typically last years, according to our patients, and the procedure is virtually painless with little recovery time

Choosing the Right Procedure for You

When trying to decide between the above treatments, there are several considerations. These include:

  • How old you are (or, if you prefer, how young!).
  • Where your trouble areas lie.
  • Any medical conditions you have.
  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Surgical implants in your body, such as pacemakers or monitors.
  • Personalized recommendations from your doctor.
  • Possible combination treatments for optimal results.
