What is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?

At a young age, we benefit from a plentiful supply of collagen and elastin. These important skin nutrients help keep our complexion smooth and resilient. Over time, your collagen and elastin nutrients start to decrease, which makes the skin less firm. Ultimately, this decrease in nutrients leads to dynamic wrinkles and sagging skin. If you wish to improve the firmness of your skin without undergoing surgery, Dr. Michelle Eagan at New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana is proud to offer ThermiSmooth® nonsurgical skin tightening. To help you achieve healthier skin, nonsurgical skin tightening treatments use radiofrequency (RF) technology to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Please schedule an appointment with Dr. Eagan to learn about the benefits of nonsurgical skin tightening.

What Are the Benefits of Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?

Nonsurgical skin tightening performed with the ThermiSmooth platform at New Orleans Plastic Surgery is a reliable way to improve skin health and firm wrinkles and creases. Further benefits of this treatment include:

  • Reducing wrinkles and lines
  • Lifting sagging skin

Who Makes A Great Candidate For Treatment?

Generally, a facelift is still the best way to improve sagging skin. However, nonsurgical skin tightening can help rejuvenate your skin if you don't qualify for surgery. We can use nonsurgical skin tightening on most areas of the body and face, including the neck, stomach, inner/outer thighs, and upper arms. The ideal candidates for nonsurgical skin tightening:

  • Are in good general health
  • Are at or near a healthy weight
  • Have mild to medium skin laxity
  • Have signs of aging
  • Want to improve the health and appearance of their skin

How Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Works

Before your procedure, Dr. Eagan will create a treatment plan that outlines the cost, amount of sessions, and treatment area. At your next appointment, we will start by cleaning your skin to remove any oils, cosmetics, and lotions. If needed, we can apply local anesthetic; however, many patients find that the discomfort is manageable. As soon as you are ready, Dr. Eagan will pass the handpiece over your skin. She will repeat this process until treating the entire area. The heat stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, which firms and tightens the skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening can take around 30 – 90 minutes to complete, and the duration depends on the size and number of treatment areas. After the session is over, you can resume your normal activities.

After Your Session

Following your skin tightening session, the affected areas may look slightly red and swollen. These symptoms are very common, and they will subside on their own in several days. Before sending you home, Dr. Eagan will provide detailed aftercare instructions. Instructions include reducing excess UV exposure and using SPF protection. Additionally, because the skin needs time to increase collagen production, it may take several months to see your final results. However, your results should last a long time and improve the overall health and appearance of your complexion. To achieve your cosmetic goals, you may require multiple sessions. If you do, we will schedule follow-up appointments.
