As you age, your stores of collagen decline, causing your skin to sag. Collagen and elastin keep the skin on your face and body tight with fewer wrinkles. If you want to improve the tautness and overall health of your skin without plastic surgery, consider nonsurgical skin tightening at Greenbush Skin Care Center in the East Greenbush, NY area. We have state-of-the-art technologies (ThermiSmooth® Body, Optimas and Evolve Tite by InMode) available for nonsurgical skin tightening sessions - that are quick for our busy patients! These radiofrequency (RF) treatments stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin in the treated areas for the development of firmer, healthier skin. You can have an assessment and consultation with our board-certified internist, Dr. Padma Sripada, in the East Greenbush, NY area. Schedule a consultation to find out more about nonsurgical skin tightening.
An excellent candidate for nonsurgical skin tightening would be someone seeking to minimize the appearance of mildly loose skin, wrinkles, or cellulite without having to undergo major surgery. Patients may need these treatments on their face, neck, abdomen, ankles, arms, back, breasts, buttocks, calves, chest, flanks, knees, hips, or thighs. To be considered, you would need to be in good health, maintain a healthy weight, have mild-to-moderate loose skin, and show signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines.
To begin the ThermiSmooth, Optimas, or Evolve Tite treatments, we will clean the targeted areas to eliminate any oil or lotion. As soon as you're ready, the selected RF handpiece will evenly pass over the skin multiple times for the most effective treatment. The energy emitted will prompt your body's natural healing process to produce collagen and elastin, which firm and tighten the skin. The session may take 30 - 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. Afterward, you'll be able to leave and resume your normal routine.
Following your nonsurgical skin tightening appointment, the treated areas may be somewhat red, swollen, or warm. There is no downtime for nonsurgical skin tightening. Dr. Padma and her team will go over the best ways to care for your treated skin at your appointment, such as:
- Protecting your skin from sun damage
- Moisturizing your skin
- Maintaining a healthy, stable weight
A noninvasive and effective treatment that needs no recovery time after the appointment, nonsurgical skin tightening can help you improve the health and tone of your skin when you see the first signs of wrinkles, lines, or looseness.
