Sagging skin, wrinkles, and areas of your body with limited collagen production tend to become more pronounced as you age. Fortunately, you do not have to live with these effects of the aging process. Instead, you can receive age-defying, skin tightening treatments in Nashville to achieve a younger-looking, rejuvenated appearance.
Our qualified plastic surgeon, Dr. Olivia MaDan, can perform these minimally and non-invasive treatments to tighten the skin. Performed in our Nashville medical spa, skin tightening is a quick and ideal solution to fight the negative effects of aging and gravity. Find out how skin tightening works and what to expect by giving our office a call today.
How Do Skin Tightening Treatments Work?
Skin tightening treatments help promote your body’s natural collagen production. Radiofrequency plasma energy is introduced into the area of desired improvement. The device uses a dual port probe to deliver energy beneath the skin. The treatment can provide 60% improvement in skin tightening.
Over time, your body increases collagen production, giving you a long-lasting, youthful, and refreshed look. Most patients who undergo skin tightening treatments in Nashville notice gradual results within six to nine months after the procedure.
Benefits of Skin Tightening Treatments
Skin tightening treatments in Nashville are incredibly worthwhile and beneficial if you want to improve skin laxity and tone. Our skin tightening treatment is:
- Best used for areas of mild laxity
- Minimally invasive using small incisions
- Performed under local or general anesthesia
Most patients are able to resume daily life after about two weeks. In general, the results are more gradual while a more invasive surgery has a longer recovery.
Preparing for and Recovering from a Skin Tightening Treatment
Before your skin tightening treatment, some preparation may be necessary. To optimize healing, you should limit other skin treatments like waxing and microdermabrasion two weeks prior to your appointment. On the day of your procedure, you can plan for:
- Pre-procedure photographs
- Arrive without makeup or jewelry
- Post-operative compression garment
- Two weeks of limited activity
The procedure itself may take 1 – 2 hours depending on the area being treated. A driver is required if oral sedation is used. Certain procedures, like liposuction or cellulite reduction, can be performed in combination with skin tightening.
After the procedure, bruising and swelling is expected and should subside over the following weeks. The compression garment helps to minimize swelling and supports the tissues as they heal.
