As you age, the body’s natural collagen and elastin production diminishes. These proteins help the skin stay voluminous, smooth, and firm. The skin can become lax and start to sag with fewer naturally occurring proteins, loose skin can appear on the face, neck, or body. At 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of skin tightening treatments, allowing you to restore the skin to a more youthful state.

What is Skin Tightening?

Skin tightening involves tightening loose skin on the body, face, and neck. Skin tightening is often minimally invasive and does not require surgery or scarring. Treatments are relatively quick in duration, lasting one hour or less, with skin tightening results lasting up to a year. Multiple treatments are often needed to reach your desired outcome and/or to maintain your results.

Skin Tightening Treatment Candidates

Ideal candidates for non-surgical skin tightening include men or women who are uncomfortable with the appearance of excess skin on their faces or bodies. Skin tightening is best for patients who experience either mild or moderate loose skin. Patients with severe skin laxity may need to seek alternative surgical treatments. Patients seeking treatment should be at a stable weight for at least six months before their treatment and in good overall health, while understanding the limitations of non-surgical skin tightening treatments. To determine if skin tightening is right for you, it is beneficial to consult with our APRN Kate or PA-C Iliana at 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery to find the best treatment plan for you.

The Skin Tightening Procedures

There are a variety of different non-surgical procedures for skin tightening. These include ultrasound skin tightening, radiofrequency treatments, and IPL treatments.

Microneedling Radiofrequency Treatments

Microneedling radiofrequency treatments offer minimal redness and swelling effects but may require 24-48 hours of downtime based on the patient; it varies, and the results take up to 6 months.

I had Such an Incredible Experience with Iliana!

I had such an incredible experience with Iliana! I was so nervous to get Botox because I was afraid it was going to be a painful experience but I was pleasantly surprised. She is truly an artist! Not only was it absolutely painless but I am the type of person that bruises like a banana so I was expecting a face full of tiny bruises as this was my first time. I woke up the next morning with no bruising at all! She is so incredibly talented and makes the process quick, painless and educational. I am so happy with my results!

I Have Referred Many of My Friends and Coworkers to Kate

I have been going to Kate Goldberg (nurse practitioner) for my Botox and fillers for years. I love that she takes the time to walk me through everything I need to look NATURAL and refreshed. She is never pushy and I always trust what she recommends. I have referred many of my friends and coworkers to Kate and they all feel the same way I do. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
