Skin Tightening Treatments in Boca Raton
Time is not kind to our body or our skin. No matter how well you take care of your health or how diligent you are with your skincare, wrinkles and loose skin inevitably become a reality later in life. Injectable treatments and cosmetic surgery are effective options for treating skin laxity, but not every patient experiences optimal results from either option. Thankfully, new treatments like J-Plasma, ThermiRF and SculpSure can deliver effective and visible results for patients who need something more powerful than Botox but not quite as invasive as surgery.
At the offices of Daniel Man, M.D., Dr. Man offers a variety of nonsurgical skin tightening therapies designed for patients of all types. Whether you are interested in a nonsurgical facelift alternative, body contouring treatment or skin tightening procedure, Dr. Man can provide a treatment that’s right for you. Schedule your consultation with us today to learn more about any of the following skin tightening options and be on your way to a slimmer, tighter, more youthful you.
J-Plasma (Renuvion) Laser Resurfacing & Skin Tightening
J-Plasma, powered by the Renuvion system, has risen as a revolutionary and incredibly effective skin resurfacing and tightening treatment. Producing facelift-like results without the need for surgery, J-Plasma treatments offer superior results with less downtime, side effects and discomfort than traditional facial resurfacing and skin tightening therapies. J-Plasma combines cold helium gas with radiofrequency (RF) energy to create plasma. When directed either over the surface of the skin or subdermally, the cutting-edge plasma energy can successfully remodel skin from the inside out.
When used for skin resurfacing, J-Plasma can target:
- Mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles/
- Skin discoloration
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Loose skin
During the skin resurfacing procedure, helium is passed through the tip of the J-Plasma device to create plasma energy, which is then directed to the surface of the skin. Most patients find the treatment to be comfortable, and local anesthesia is used beforehand to ensure a painless procedure. The plasma removes the outer layer of the skin while stimulating increased collagen and elastin production in the deep, structural layers of the dermis. The result is tighter, firmer skin with a rejuvenated, more youthful complexion.
J-Plasma can also be used for effective skin tightening and to improve body contouring results following liposuction. Following a fat removal procedure, J-Plasma can be applied subdermally to shrink and tighten any loose skin that may occur due to liposuction. J-Plasma skin tightening does not require any additional incisions and produces minimal side effects, making it a welcome addition to body contouring procedures.
Following a J-Plasma procedure, downtime and side effects will vary among each patient based on which type of treatment they underwent. For skin tightening coupled with liposuction, J-Plasma will produce little to no noticeable side effects. For facial resurfacing, patients should expect about seven to 10 days of downtime as visible side effects like skin redness, peeling, swelling persist. Results will be visible in as little as two weeks as more youthful, radiant skin emerges. The anti-aging effects of a J-Plasma skin resurfacing treatment can last several years, making it an effective option for patients interested in long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
ThermiRF Skin Treatment System
The ThermiRF skin treatment system consists of a wide range of adjustable radiofrequency (RF) devices that can target common areas of concern throughout the body. Each ThermiRF device has specific uses:
- ThermiTight: Breaks down fat and increase collagen production in the targeted areas, including the face, neck, underarms, back, stomach and thighs. Commonly used as a nonsurgical liposuction alternative. Shrinks and tightens skin while treating stubborn fat.
- ThermiVa: A nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation device. Painlessly targets both the vaginal canal and outer tissues to combat dryness, lack of libido, painful intercourse, urinary stress incontinence and the emotional stress that such issues may cause.
- ThermiSmooth: Tightens skin by stimulating new collagen production using thermal energy. Safe for all skin types and skin tones. Commonly used as a nonsurgical alternative to blepharoplasty or facelift surgery.
- Thermi250: Can be used to diminish signs of aging around the eyes, mouth, forehead, eyelids, neck, abdomen, thighs and buttocks. Tightens skin to reduce wrinkles and skin laxity.
- ThermiRase: Relaxes small facial muscles responsible for creating wrinkles. A minimally invasive and FDA-approved alternative to Botox and other injectable neuromodulators.
Each ThermiRF procedure differs in its approach. Some treatments are completely noninvasive while others may require the skin or fat to be treated subdermally. All ThermiRF treatments are nonsurgical and produce minimal side effects with little to no downtime. The RF energy emitted by the ThermiRF system is FDA-approved and safe for use in cosmetic treatments. The temperature of the thermal energy emitted by the RF device is safely regulated to maintain optimal and safe treatment. An infrared camera also provides an additional layer of protection and temperature regulation.
ThermiRF procedures are an effective option for patients who have previously relied on injectable or noninvasive treatments in the past for their anti-aging remedies but are not quite ready for cosmetic surgery. At the offices of Daniel Man, M.D., we will help you determine if ThermiRF treatments are right for you following an in-person evaluation of your concerns and your desired results. Dr. Man can create an individualized treatment plan that matches the optimal ThermiRF device to your individual needs.
SculpSure Noninvasive Body Contouring
SculpSure is a noninvasive liposuction alternative that eliminates stubborn fat and tightens contours using laser technology. SculpSure is FDA-cleared to target pockets of fat in the abdomen and the love handles with an average fat loss of 24 percent per treatment. Each SculpSure session lasts about 30 minutes and is comfortable without anesthesia.
During a SculpSure procedure, the handheld applicator is passed externally over the targeted section of fat, allowing the laser energy to penetrate the skin and specifically focus on the fatty tissue beneath. The fat cells are broken down and destroyed, leaving the body to naturally and harmlessly flush them out over the course of a few months. Most patients see an improvement in their contours with just a single treatment, although up to three may be needed for optimal results. Following a SculpSure appointment, patients are free to immediately resume all normal activities with no downtime or serious side effects.
In addition to promoting fat loss, SculpSure also tightens skin laxity by increasing collagen and elastin production in the targeted area, ensuring smooth and slim results. Results will take some time to develop as the body continues to clear out the treated fat cells and tighten skin. Visible improvement will be evident around six weeks after treatment and will continue to improve for up to 12 weeks. Additional appointments may be scheduled after six weeks have passed.
Good candidates for SculpSure are men and women who are in good health, have already tried diet and exercise to achieve their desired results, are interested in noninvasive treatment options and have realistic expectations about their results. Dr. Man helps his patients determine if noninvasive SculpSure treatments are right for them following an in-person consultation.
