About nonsurgical Skin Tightening

When you are born, your body has a full supply of collagen and elastin that helps to make your skin smooth, soft, resilient, and healthy. In time, this stock of nutrients becomes depleted and the skin on the body and face decreases in elasticity, leading to lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. If you want to improve the tightness and overall appearance of your skin without cosmetic surgery, consider nonsurgical skin tightening with Sciton® SkinTyte™ technology at Mesbahi Plastic Surgery. With state-of-the-art equipment, nonsurgical skin tightening stimulates the natural generation of collagen and elastin in the areas treated so you can have firmer, healthier skin. To learn more, reach out to our office in McLean, VA, Washington, D.C., or Beverly Hills, CA to schedule a private consultation with seasoned plastic surgeon Dr. Alex Mesbahi. During your consult, Dr. Mesbahi can assess your skin to determine if nonsurgical skin tightening is right for you.

Candidates for nonsurgical skin tightening

Skin tightening procedures, like facelifts and neck lifts, remain the best way to correct sagging, loose skin. However, nonsurgical skin tightening with SkinTyte can be a good option if you don't wish to have cosmetic surgery. Nonsurgical skin tightening treatments may be used on many areas of the body and face, such as the neck, stomach, thighs, and arms. The best patients for this procedure:

  • Are in good overall health
  • Are near or at a healthy, stable weight
  • Have mild or medium loose skin on the face or body
  • Have lines or wrinkles on the body or face
  • Want to enhance the health and appearance of their skin

nonsurgical skin tightening treatment

Before the procedure, the area(s) being treated will be cleansed to remove any oil, makeup, and lotion. Thanks to the advanced SkinTyte technology, a topical anesthetic is not needed as the system has a built-in sapphire contact cooling system for optimal comfort. Once you are ready, the SkinTyte handpiece will be passed evenly over the skin several times for an efficient session. The laser energy stimulates the body’s natural healing properties to start producing collagen and elastin, which firms and tightens the skin. The procedure can take about 30 – 90 minutes based on the size and number of areas being treated. Once the procedure is complete, you will be able to leave and resume your daily activities.

after your procedure

Following your nonsurgical skin tightening session, the affected skin may be slightly red, swollen, or numb. This is expected and will resolve on its own in 2 – 3 days. During your consult, Dr. Mesbahi will go over the best ways to care for your skin at home after your treatment, such as keeping the skin moisturized and protected from the sun. Many patients will not have visible improvements right after their procedure. Since the elastin and collagen stimulation and production is a gradual process, you can expect to see the full results after about 2 – 6 months. However, these results should last a long time and improve the general health and appearance of your skin. Multiple treatments may be needed to attain your cosmetic goals. During your consultation, Dr. Mesbahi can create your custom treatment plan based on your unique needs.
