Skin Tightening Q & A

What issues do skin-tightening treatments address?

Skin tightening addresses a number of issues that result from aging. These include:

  • Facial lines and wrinkles
  • Lax skin at the jaw, jowls, and neck
  • Skin laxity on the body

If you have concerns about sagging skin anywhere on your face, neck, and body, talk to Dr. Becker about which strategies for tightening that skin will be most effective for your aesthetic needs.

What is Renuvion technology for skin tightening?

Renuvion® is the latest technology that combines cold helium plasma with radiofrequency energy. Your skin is heated in a controlled manner, leading to optimal results while minimizing risks. The treatment, which was formerly called J-Plasma, is only minimally invasive and delivers dramatic results.

What can I expect during a Renuvion session for skin tightening?

During treatment, Dr. Becker inserts a small tube under the skin to deliver helium plasma and radiofrequency energy. The procedure almost “shrink wraps” the skin, creating an instantly tighter look. Full results should be expected between 6-9 months. You need no general anesthesia and may experience mild post-treatment bruising and swelling.

Where can Renuvion skin tightening be applied?

Renuvion® can be effective in tightening skin just about anywhere on the body. Popular treatment areas include the: Neck Arms Stomach Face (jowls) Back Thighs

Are there other treatments that can be combined with Renuvion?

In some cases, small-volume liposuction can be used in combination with Renuvion to enhance the skin tightening results. Dr. Becker and his team at Rinnova Skin & Body will discuss your options during your consultation. Talk to Dr. Becker about your areas of concern, and he can help determine if Renuvion® is the best option for you.

How does a thread lift work?

Thread lift is a minimally invasive solution to lift sagging skin without major surgery. Sutures are placed under local anesthesia to lift and tighten the face, neck, or jawline. These threads work by generating new collagen along the suture lines. The results are instant, improve with time, leave no scars, and can last for years.

What is sublative skin resurfacing?

This noninvasive treatment stimulates your body’s natural ability to produce the skin-strengthening compounds of elastin and collagen so you get tighter skin from the inside out. Sublative treatments use radiofrequency energy to penetrate the outer layer of skin to reach into the dermis. Sublative treatments are effective in creating a tauter complexion and have minimal downtime.

What issues can be addressed with sublative skin tightening?

Sublative skin-tightening treatments are especially useful on common complexion concerns associated with aging, sun exposure, and acne. Dr. Becker may recommend it for:

  • Wrinkles
  • Lax skin
  • Textural irregularities
