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.
"Dr Eagan did my breast aug in March 2020. I searched for months before selecting a doctor and the reason I chose her is because her personality is outstanding!! She is by far the kindest doctor I have ever met!!! She is not a doctor that will put too much on your body if your body can not handle it. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my results! I am 4 months post op and I swear I fall in love with my procedure results all over again every single day! We are already discussing lip injections because she is just absolutely fantastic! Always available when I needed her and every appointment she has always greeted me as a friend and made sure I had a great appointment!! Wish I could give more stars to her!! Make sure to check her out because you will NOT regret it"- S.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2020
"Life changing I’ve been trying to get a breast reduction since 2018 and the moment I walked into Dr.Eagan’s office it just felt right. Dr.Eagan is truly the kindest person I’ve ever met. She explained the process of the surgery and post op care. One of the most important things is she cared about what cup size I wanted and she delivered. I went from a F cup to a B /C cup which is exactly what I wanted. Also Dr.Eagan called me the night before and the night after surgery to check on me. When I show people my before and after pictures all they can say is “Wow! What’s the Doctor’s name? Seriously, my back pain is gone and I feel more comfortable with exercising, sleeping, and wearing different clothing. Also, Miss. Yvonne is the sweetest she worked diligently to make sure all my documentation was in order to send to my insurance for approval and explained any questions or concerns I had regarding payment. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon that will provide excellent quality and has great bedside manner. Dr.Eagan is your person. Dr.Eagan and her staff are truly professional and amazing 10/10 highly recommend🙌🏾"- B.L. / Google / Mar 11, 2023

She also has wonderful bedside manner! I 100% recommend her to any friend or family member and will continue to use her services!"- M.F. / Yelp / Mar 03, 2023
"Dr. Eagan was extremely pleasant as well as her staff! Dr Eagan made sure I was very well prepared for my surgery. Everything was well planned and organized. All the workers at the hospital made me feel so safe and calm being that I was very scared. I haven’t felt 1 ounce of pain since I had my surgery on yesterday and very little discomfort jus like dr Eagan promised. I initially didn’t want any photos posted but when I saw how amazing dr Eagan did on my breast reduction I really wanted her to post them! My reaction was like you wouldn’t believe, I was so excited! I highly recommend dr Eagan."- L.H. / Yelp / Mar 02, 2023

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.
