Skin tightening Treatment procedures have become very popular in recent years because they provide a non-surgical alternative to more invasive procedures for correcting skin laxity and improving skin quality. Today your plastic surgeon can choose among a number of different devices and technologies that provide non-invasive skin tightening solutions..

When to Consider Non-surgical Skin Tightening Treatment

  • If you have mild to moderate loose skin on your face, neck, arms or abdomen
  • If you have residual skin laxity after an operative procedure
  • If you would like an improvement in the quality of your skin
  • If you are unable (or unwilling) to undergo a more invasive, surgical procedure to correct skin laxity.

Considerations

These are the top three pros and cons to weigh when considering non-surgical skin tightening treatment. If you want to focus on what is unique to you, please consult with your aesthetic plastic surgeon.

Pros

  • A non-invasive, non-surgical technique that tightens facial or body skin
  • Performed with no incisions, minimal discomfort and little to no downtime
  • May be used for all skin types

Cons

  • Results are less extensive and dramatic than those obtained with a facelift or body contouring procedures
  • Multiple treatments are usually needed for optimal results
  • Skin redness, temporary swelling or numbness or volume loss around the treated area may occur

How is a Non-surgical Skin Tightening Procedure Performed?

Depending on your skin quality and the area being treated, your surgeon may choose one of the treatments described below. Before the procedure begins the area to be treated is cleaned of makeup and skin lotions. Some treatments require a thin coat of ultrasound gel during treatment. Oral or intravenous pain medication may be required depending upon device, treatment area, and your individual needs.

Radiofrequency
  • The treatment area is measured and marked
  • Your skin is cooled for comfort and safety
  • A specially designed treatment tip is placed against your skin
  • Radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the skin’s tissue, heating the treatment areas and stimulating collagen production
  • You will feel a gentle vibration as well as cooling and heating sensations during each pulse
  • The upper layer of your skin is cooled
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
  • If your face will be treated, you will be provided with protective eye covering
  • A handpiece is used to administer a continuous cooling while an infra-red light heats the deep dermis (deep layer of your skin)
  • One or more passes may be performed.
Ultrasound
  • The treatment area is measured and marked
  • An ultrasound gel is applied to your skin
  • A smooth handpiece is placed on your skin and an image of the tissue beneath is projected on a screen so your surgeon can see the treatment area
  • The ultrasound emits small thermal bursts to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin without disturbing the skin’s surface
