About Skin Tightening
When you are born, your body has a full supply of collagen and elastin that helps to make your skin smooth, soft, healthy, and resilient. In time, this supply of nutrients runs low and the skin of the face and body decreases in elasticity, leading to lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. If you want to improve the tautness and overall appearance of your skin without cosmetic surgery, consider nonsurgical skin tightening at Ellsworth Plastic Surgery. Utilizing advanced technology, nonsurgical skin tightening prompts the natural generation of collagen and elastin in the treated areas so you can have firmer, healthier skin. During the consultation, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Warren Ellsworth IV is pleased to offer nonsurgical skin tightening to patients wishing to tone the skin on their body or face without the expense and time of a lift surgery. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Ellsworth in Houston, TX to hear more about nonsurgical skin tightening.
"Dr. Ellsworth was the first Doctor that told me, he would NEVER put implants in my breast with my history of Breast Cancer. At that time I wanted a quick fix not realizing his extensive background with women like me, or what was even best for me. It didn’t take long to know that he cared a lot about his patients. His hands are definitely a gift from God. I have been on his table 3 plus times, and he is THE BEST PERIOD!!!!! You will know the moment you meet him."- J.D. / Facebook / Oct 18, 2019

Skin tightening surgery or “lift” procedures, like a facelift, remains the most effective method to correct sagging, loose skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening can help if you do not wish to undergo plastic surgery. Nonsurgical skin tightening treatments can be performed on most areas of the face and body, including the neck, stomach, arms, and thighs. The best patients for this procedure:
- Are in good overall health
- Are at or near a healthy, stable weight
- Have mild to moderate skin looseness on the face or body
- Have lines or wrinkles on the face or body
- Want to boost the health and appearance of their skin
Ellsworth Plastic Surgery utilizes the advanced SkinTyte system to safely treat loose skin on the face, neck, and body. Before the process, the area(s) being treated will be cleaned to remove any oils, cosmetics, and lotions. Options for local anesthesia can be discussed if you want, but most patients find that any mild discomfort during the laser treatment is short-lived and easy to tolerate. After your skin is prepared, a special handpiece will be passed evenly over the skin multiple times for the most effective treatment.
SkinTyte delivers infrared energy deep into the dermis while protecting the surface of your skin. The energy prompts the body’s natural healing properties to produce collagen and elastin, which tightens and firms the skin. The procedure can take about 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. After the procedure is over, you will be able to leave and resume your regular activities.
What to Expect
After your nonsurgical skin tightening session, the treated areas may be somewhat red or swollen. This is typical and should heal on its own within 2 – 3 days. During your initial consultation, Dr. Ellsworth will go over the best ways to care for your skin after your procedure, such as keeping the skin moisturized and protected from sun damage. Most patients will not see visible results immediately after the treatment. Since the collagen and elastin production is a gradual process, you can see the final results of your treatment about 2 – 6 months after the procedure. However, these results should be long-lasting and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. You may want multiple treatments to get the ideal outcome. During your consultation, Dr. Ellsworth will help you create your unique treatment plan based on your needs and goals.
Keep It Tight
If you want to keep your skin firm and tight as long as possible without going under the knife, schedule an appointment with Dr. Ellsworth to find out more about nonsurgical skin tightening. An effective, noninvasive treatment that needs no downtime after the session, nonsurgical skin tightening can help you improve the health and tone of your skin when you see the earliest signs of wrinkles, lines, and looseness.
