About Skin Tightening
When you are born, you have a full stock of elastin and collagen that helps to make your skin soft, smooth, resilient, and healthy. In time, this stock of nutrients becomes depleted and the skin of your body and face decreases in elasticity, causing wrinkles, lines, and skin that sags. If you want to improve the tautness and general health of your skin without cosmetic surgery, look into nonsurgical skin tightening at Sheer Beauty Medical Skin Care in Redlands, Riverside, or Upland, CA. Employing state-of-the-art equipment, nonsurgical skin tightening prompts the natural generation of elastin and collagen in the areas treated so you can develop healthier, firmer skin. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ben Childers is happy to perform nonsurgical skin tightening to his Inland Empire patients looking to tone the skin on their body or face without the expense and time of a lift surgery. Make an appointment with Dr. Childers to hear more information on nonsurgical skin tightening.

Skin tightening surgery, or "lifts" like a facelift, are still the best method to correct loose and sagging skin, but nonsurgical skin tightening may be a good option if you don't want to have plastic surgery. Nonsurgical skin tightening treatments may be performed on many areas of the body and face, such as the stomach, neck, thighs, and arms. The ideal patients for nonsurgical skin tightening:
- Are in good general health
- Are near or at a stable, healthy weight
- Have light or medium loose skin on the body or face
- Have wrinkles or lines on the body or face
- Want to boost the appearance and health of their skin
To start the process, the area(s) to be treated will be cleaned to eliminate any oil and lotions. Options for local anesthesia may be discussed if you want; however, many patients feel that potential pain from the laser treatment is short lived and easy to tolerate. After your skin is prepared, a special handpiece will be evenly passed over the treated skin several times for an efficient session. The laser energy released by the handpiece prompts the body to start the production of elastin and collagen that will firm and tighten the skin. A session may take about/around 30 – 90 minutes based on the size and how many areas being treated. Once the procedure is over, you'll be allowed to leave and get back to your regular routine.
What to Expect
Following your skin tightening session, the affected skin can be somewhat numb, red, or swollen. This is typical and you should heal naturally in 2 – 3 days. In your initial consultation, Dr. Childers will go over methods to care for your skin at home after your procedure, such as keeping the skin protected and moisturized from sun damage. Many patients won't see noticeable improvements right after their treatment. Since the elastin and collagen production is a slow process, you should see the final results of the procedure about several months after your session. However, your results should last a long time and enhance the general appearance and health of your skin. You will probably want several sessions to achieve the most ideal outcome. At your initial consultation, Dr. Childers can help you create your unique plan for treatment to meet your needs and goals.
