What is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?
As you start to age, your complexion will change because your body's natural production of nutrients starts to decrease. Collagen and elastin help your skin stay smooth, healthy, and resilient. Eventually, these nutrients become depleted and cause your skin to look and feel less firm. If you want to improve the firmness and overall health of your skin without cosmetic surgery, we encourage you to learn more about nonsurgical skin tightening at Renuvia Medical Center in New Port Richey, FL. With state-of-the-art equipment, nonsurgical skin tightening prompts the natural production of elastin and collagen in the treated areas, so you develop tight, glowing skin. Dr. Arthur Schlyer is pleased to perform nonsurgical skin tightening to his patients who want to rejuvenate their skin without the recovery time and discomfort of a lift surgery. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Schlyer in New Port Richey, FL to find out more about nonsurgical skin tightening.
Who Makes A Great Candidate For Treatment?
Skin tightening surgery, or “lift” procedures like a face or body lift, remains the most effective option to improve lax skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening can rejuvenate your skin if you don't want to undergo surgery. We can perform the procedure on most areas of the face and body, including the abs, under the chin, upper arms, and thighs. The best patients for this procedure:
- Are in good general health
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Have early onset to medium skin laxity
- Have signs of aging on their skin
- Want to boost the firmness and aesthetic of their skin
How Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Works
Before your procedure, we will clean your skin to eliminate any oil or lotions. If needed, we can provide anesthesia; however, many patients find that any mild discomfort during the nonsurgical treatment is brief and manageable. Once ready, we evenly pass a handpiece over the skin several times for the most effective results. The heat prompts the body to start producing collagen and elastin, which firms and tightens the skin. A session can take 30 – 90 minutes based on the size and number of areas needing treatment. Once the session is complete, you can leave and resume your normal routine.
After Your Session
After your skin tightening appointment, the treated areas may be slightly red, swollen, or numb. This is typical and should clear up naturally within a few days. During your initial consultation, Dr. Schlyer will discuss methods to care for your skin at home following your procedure, such as keeping the skin moisturized and protected from sun and environmental damage. Many patients won't see noticeable results immediately after their session. Since the elastin and collagen stimulation and growth is a slow process, you should see the final results of your treatment about 2 – 6 months after your procedure. However, these results should last a long time and enhance the general health and appearance of your skin. You will probably require several treatments to achieve the ideal outcome. At your initial consultation, Dr. Schlyer will help you create your unique plan for treatment to meet your concerns and goals.
