What is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?
As we age, the firmness of our skin begins to change because important nutrients, such as collagen and elastin, start to decrease. Over time, these nutrients become depleted and your skin will lose elasticity, which causes lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin. If you want to improve the tautness and overall health of your skin without plastic surgery, consider nonsurgical skin tightening at Nirvana Med Spa in Little Rock, AR. Utilizing advanced Alma Harmony XL Pro laser technology, nonsurgical skin tightening stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. This will help you develop firmer and healthier skin. During your consultation, we can discuss your goals and determine if nonsurgical skin tightening works best for your needs. Learn how you can rejuvenate your skin without undergoing surgery.

Who Makes A Great Candidate For Treatment?
Surgical skin tightening, or "lifts" like facelifts, remains the best way to improve sagging skin. If you do not qualify for plastic surgery, nonsurgical skin tightening may work well for you. We can use nonsurgical skin tightening on most areas of the face and body, including the abs, under the chin, inner/outer thighs, and upper arms. The most likely patients for this treatment:
- Are in good, general health
- Are at or near a healthy weight
- Have mild to medium skin laxity
- Have signs of aging, such as wrinkles or fine lines
- Want to subtly change the health and appearance of their skin
How Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Works
At the beginning of your appointment, we will clean the treatment area(s) to eliminate any makeup, dirt, or oil. If needed, we can apply local anesthesia, but most patients feel that the discomfort is mild, temporary, and easy to tolerate. After your skin is cleaned, a handheld device is passed evenly over the skin. This step is repeated as necessary. Throughout the treatment, the energy stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, which firms and tightens the skin. Based on the size and number of treatment areas, the procedure takes around 30 – 90 minutes. After finishing the treatment, you may leave and resume your normal routine.
After Your Session
After your nonsurgical skin tightening session, the affected skin may feel slightly inflamed, numb, or red. These symptoms are normal and will subside naturally in 2 – 3 days. During your consultation, we will provide aftercare instructions, such as keeping the skin moisturized and protected from the sun. Many patients may not see the results immediately after their treatment. Because collagen and elastin production is a slow process, you will see the results after several months. However, your results should last a long time and enhance the overall health and appearance of your skin. You will probably need several sessions to attain your desired results. At your consultation, our team can create a customized treatment plan that meets your needs and cosmetic goals.
