What is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?
Elastin and collagen are nutrients in your body that can become depleted, which will cause your skin to loosen. In their absence, you will see more signs of aging and sagging skin. If you want to improve the tautness and overall appearance of your skin without surgery, consider nonsurgical skin tightening with our NuEra™ or Plasma Pen nonsurgical skin tightening treatments at our Chicago, IL office. Our team is happy to offer nonsurgical skin tightening to patients desiring to rejuvenate their skin without the recovery time and discomfort of a surgical lift. Schedule an appointment at Lincoln Park Aesthetics to learn more about qualifying for nonsurgical skin tightening.
Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Reviews
"I am a regular client of Jenna’s and can not say enough good things about her and Lincoln Park Aesthetics. I originally came in for laser facial rejuvenation but after my initial consultation where we discussed my past treatments and my skin goals, we decided on a different course of treatment - microneedling. In just a few sessions I have seen more improvement on my deep acne scars and overall skin texture through my visits with Jenna than I had seen from prior years of more expensive and more invasive laser treatments. The pricing is reasonable and I appreciate the value. Typically to get a good deal for these types of services in Chicago you’re going somewhere sketchy that churns people in and out like cattle - not here. I look forward to the relaxing atmosphere and the time and care that Jenna puts into my skin. I am so happy I found this place."- B.S. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2016
Who Makes A Great Candidate For Treatment?
Surgical skin tightening or "lift" procedures, like a facelift, are still the only way to remove lax skin. NuEra and Plasma Pen nonsurgical skin tightening may be performed on many areas of the face and body, including the abdomen, under the chin, upper arms, and thighs. The best patients for this procedure:
- Have good health
- Maintain a stable weight (no fluctuations)
- Have mild to moderate skin looseness in the treatment area
- Have aging skin that needs a boost in firmness and radiance
At your initial consultation, we will ask you about your aesthetic goals. Your answers, along with a physical examination of your skin, will help us determine if you should choose a nonsurgical treatment for tightening your skin. Most often, nonsurgical treatments are designed for patients with early or mild skin laxity.
How Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Works
We will take you to a private treatment room where we will prep you for the skin tightening session. The area(s) of your skin to be treated will be cleaned. Local anesthesia options may be considered if you would prefer; however, most patients feel that any mild discomfort during the procedure is temporary and easy to tolerate. With NuEra, as soon as you are ready, a device will be evenly passed over the skin multiple times. The radiofrequency (RF) energy will prompt your body’s natural healing properties to boost your levels of elastin and collagen, which will tighten and firm the skin. The treatment may take around 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated. After the treatment is over, you will be able to leave and get back to your regular routine.
For a Plasma Pen treatment, the device utilizes electrical energy to help contract the skin tissue. This procedure helps to stimulate collagen production over time while also activating and releasing important proteins within the skin. It can effectively improve both skin tone and texture with very little downtime. During the procedure, the pen-like device will create tiny dots around the treatment area that will eventually scab and fall off to reveal refreshed and rejuvenated skin.
After Your Session
After your nonsurgical skin tightening appointment, the treated skin can be somewhat red, swollen, or numb. This is normal, and you will heal naturally within several days. In your consultation, our aesthetics team will discuss methods to care for your skin at home after your treatment. Keep your skin protected from sun exposure and moisturize. Many patients won't be able to see visible improvements immediately after the session. Since the collagen and elastin production process is slow, you should see the total results of your procedure a few months afterward. However, your results should be long-lasting and improve the overall appearance and health of your skin. You will probably require multiple sessions to achieve the most ideal outcome.
