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

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.

Ideal Candidates

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

Procedure Technique

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 laser 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 laser 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.
