What is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?
Throughout our younger years, we get to enjoy a lavish reserve of natural nutrients that keeps our complexion supple and firm. Over time, the skin begins to lose elasticity, which results in wrinkles and droopy skin. At Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jean-Denis Boucher is pleased to offer nonsurgical skin tightening treatments to help men and women improve the tone and texture of their skin. Using state-of-the-art radiofrequency (RF) technology, nonsurgical skin tightening helps to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen so it's possible to attain a younger-looking appearance. We encourage you to contact our team to learn more about meeting your cosmetic goals with nonsurgical skin tightening in San Antonio, TX.
What Are the Benefits of Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?

How Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Works
During your appointment at Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic, we'll start by creating a customized treatment plan to fit your goals. If needed, we can give you a numbing ointment to soothe the area during your treatment. Your technician will evenly run the handpiece along your skin several times to help prompt your own natural creation of collagen. Your session will take about 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. After your nonsurgical skin tightening treatment, you should not experience any downtime. The treated regions may be somewhat red or irritated, but this is temporary. Because the production of elastin and collagen is gradual, it can take a few months before your firm, tight results begin to take shape. As long as you maintain a steady weight, you should be able to enjoy your outcomes for many years.
