About Skin Tightening
When you are born, you have a full stock of the nutrients elastin and collagen that help to make your skin soft, smooth, resilient, and healthy. In time, this stock of nutrients becomes depleted and the skin of your body and face decreases in resiliency, causing wrinkles, lines, and skin that sags. If you want to improve the tautness and general health of your skin without cosmetic surgery, look into nonsurgical skin tightening at Allegro MedSpa of Novato. Utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, nonsurgical skin tightening prompts the natural generation of elastin and collagen in the areas treated so you can develop healthier, firmer skin. Plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas are pleased to offer nonsurgical skin tightening to patients who want to firm the skin on their body or face without the expense and time of a lift surgery. Make an appointment with our aesthetic team in Novato, CA to hear more about how a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment can help you.
NuEra tight uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to penetrate and heat the superficial and subsurface of the skin. With precision and deep heating, NuEra tight can improve the appearance of cellulite, as well as treat skin laxity. It can be used to address various areas on the body and face and utilizes advanced temperature-controlled technology to provide optimal comfort.
"I get the Signature Peel with aesthetician Ashley and could not recommend her more highly. LOVE HER. She is so knowledgeable, sweet and calming...even though I’m getting a chemical peel she has me feel so relaxed like I’m getting a full massage. I’ve had peels at other high-end medspas but have never received better results than with Ashley. Based on her knowledge, skill and beautiful energy, I wholeheartedly give Ashley 5+ stars. She’s the best."- N.B. / Google / Jun 21, 2019
"My experience at Allegro MedSpa was wonderful! Kelsey performed my procedures that day and I could not have felt more reassured that I was making the right choices to meet my specific needs and desires. Her experience quelled any anxiety that crept up. I had complete peace trusting her suggestions and advice for not only treatment now but beneficial procedures in the future.😀Kelsey was patient, engaged, generous and made me feel like I was the most important person in her life for the time I was with her! I will absolutely be asking for Kelsey again in the future!"- J.D. / Google / Feb 20, 2020
"I was at Allegro for some voluma in my cheeks. Kelsey was great about discussing what I wanted and suggested additional juvederm for some areas that have been bothering me. I told her I bruise easily and she kept icing my face after each area was injected. I’ve never had anyone take such care to try to reduce bruising. My appointment was yesterday and yes I have bruising, but I can’t imagine how much worse I would look if Kelsey hadn’t taken such time and care with me. I can’t wait to see how great I look once this bruising goes away!Thank you Kelsey!"- S.K. / Google / Feb 20, 2020
"First let me say, absolutely amazing staff! I have been here twice, first time for a skin consultation and skin care routine. Came away with a skin care program that suited my needs as well as a friendly consultation that made me feel so comfortable. (I don't often go anywhere with out my make up on, but everyone made me feel "normal" and beautiful and accepted for me) My second time I visited the MedSpa, (along with my Aunt) I met with Kelsey! And let me say...loud and absolutely clear!.....She is truly awesome! Kind....gentle...down to Earth.....professional and very informative! This was my first time looking into any type of "refresher".....and so naturally I had some anxiety about what I should and shouldn't do. Kelsey, was sooooo patient and kind and helped me (and my Aunt) with my/our decisions...as well as what was appropriate for me and my needs. SO thankful for her advice and wisdom! Absolute hands down....I had such a wonderful experience! Thank you Allegro MedSpa!....Oh!..and the lovely girls at the desk?...All smiles and treated me like family. You guys made my nerves turn into excitement and joy! I will definitely be back again. Looking forward to it!"- S.J. / Google / Feb 13, 2020
"When treatment day arrived, I was a bit anxious as to what would actually happen and how it would feel. My pleasant surprise was that it went so smoothly with no discomfort. The staff were so pleasant and timed things so well that it felt more like a facial. The day after there was some tenderness in my neck but that had been the area of my most serious concern and needed most work. Other than tenderness there was no noticeable after effects and I wondered if it had worked at all. Much to my surprise 3 months later friends and family started noticing and commenting on my refreshed look. Up close I could see the noticeable effects and was so pleased. Be sure and use the right skin cream and you are set for the next year."- M.C. / Google / Jan 25, 2020
Skin tightening surgery, or "lifts," like a facelift, are still the best method to correct loose, sagging skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening may be a good option if you don't want to have plastic surgery. These treatments may be performed on many areas of the body and face, such as the stomach, neck, thighs, and arms. The ideal patients for this procedure:
- Are in good general health
- Are near or at a stable, healthy weight
- Have light or medium loose skin on the body or face
- Have wrinkles or lines on the body or face
- Want to boost the appearance and health of their skin
Before the session, the area(s) to be treated will be cleaned to eliminate any oils and lotions. Options for local anesthesia may be discussed if you want; however, many patients feel that any pain from the treatment is short-lived and easy to tolerate. After your skin is prepared, a special handpiece will be evenly passed over the skin several times for an efficient session. The energy stimulates the body to start producing elastin and collagen, which firms and tightens the skin. A session may take around 30 – 90 minutes based on the size and number of areas treated. Once the procedure is over, you'll be allowed to leave and get back to your regular routine.
What to Expect
Following your skin tightening session, the affected skin can be somewhat numb, red, or swollen. This is typical, and you will heal naturally in 2 – 3 days. In your initial consultation, we will go over methods to care for the treated skin at home after your procedure, such as keeping the skin protected and moisturized from sun damage. Many patients won't see noticeable improvements right after their treatment. Since the elastin and collagen production is a slow process, you should see the final results of the procedure about several months after your session. However, your results should last a long time and enhance the general appearance and health of your skin. You will probably want several sessions to achieve the most ideal outcome. At your initial consultation, we can help you create your unique treatment plan to meet your needs and goals.
