Non-Surgical Skin Tightening For the Whole Body

A large number of busy individuals seek non-surgical skin tightening procedures with little to no downtime. There are a number of FDA-cleared skin-tightening treatments offered at MetroDerm, P.C. in Atlanta, GA. These treatments are effective for tightening and toning lax skin on the face and body.  They can also affect skin texture and reduce cellulite.

Each of the treatments utilizes a different type of approach. The experts at MetroDerm, P.C. offer several options to their patients. If your skin is no longer plump, firm, or smooth, non-surgical skin tightening can temporarily stop the downward spiral and give your skin a more youthful appearance:

  • Tighter
  • Smoother
  • Firmer

There are so many reasons to consider one of MetroDerm’s non-surgical skin tightening procedures:

  • No surgery or scars
  • Little to no downtime
  • Treatment performed in the office, typically in 1 hour or less
  • Results can last up to 1 year
  • Well-trained personnel
  • Tightens mild to moderately loose skin on the face, neck, or body

Non-surgical skin tightening is not effective on cases of more-advanced skin laxity. Dr. Farzad Nahai, a board-certified plastic surgeon, has extensive training in surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments. During your consultation, he will help you choose the best option to help you meet your aesthetic goals.  Some patients will be better served through surgery which would remove excess skin.

Procedures that do not require surgery are not permanent.  They need to be repeated occasionally to maintain the results.  Due to the advanced technology used in each process, results are not immediately visible. They develop over time as collagen is produced. It’s important to be patient. Dr. Nahai will help you track your progress as you go through the treatment cycle.

There are few serious side effects in the non-surgical treatments, but be sure to tell the doctor if you are pregnant or have any medical conditions. He will also need a list of your medications to make sure the treatment is right for you. Check out this list of treatments which will stimulate collagen production and plump, firm, and smooth your skin:

Ultherapy®

Ultherapy® is an ultrasound technology which is FDA approved to treat the brow, chin, neck, and chest. This ultrasound treatment has a great safety record.

  • Treats early signs of aging on the face and neck
  • In-office treatments take 30-90 minutes with no downtime
  • Side effects are mild
  • Results last up to a year

ThermiRF®

ThermiRF® uses radiofrequency (RF) energy.  It involves heating the skin to trigger collagen production. ThermiRF® focuses on the epidermal layers where it firms and smooths the skin’s appearance. Dr. Nahai may recommend a series of 2 to 6 treatments for the best result.

  • Treats the face, neck, hands, and body
  • In-office treatment
  • Safe for all skin types
  • Little to no discomfort or downtime
  • Results appear gradually

IPL Treatment

Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments penetrate deeper layers of skin and trigger a healing response which means collagen production. Individuals with darker or tanned skin may not be candidates for the IPL. MetroDerm’s experienced professionals will help you decide if this treatment is for you.

  • Treatments performed in the office
  • Little to no downtime
  • Results appear gradually
  • A series of treatments is recommended for best results.
