How is a nonsurgical 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 infrared 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
