About Skin Tightening
At birth, your body has a full supply of the nutrients collagen and elastin that keeps your skin smooth, soft, healthy, and resilient. However, this supply of nutrients can run 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 firmness and overall appearance of your skin without plastic surgery, consider nonsurgical skin tightening at Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center. With advanced technology, this procedure encourages the production of collagen and elastin in the treated areas so you can have firmer, healthier skin. Plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle is pleased to offer nonsurgical skin tightening to patients wishing to tone the skin on their face and body without the recovery time and expense of a surgical lift procedure. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Lyle in Raleigh, NC to find out more about nonsurgical skin tightening.
Surgery for skin tightening, or “lift” procedures like a face or body lift, remain the most effective option for improving sagging, loose skin, although nonsurgical skin tightening can help if you do not wish to undergo cosmetic surgery. Nonsurgical skin tightening procedures can be done on most areas of the face and body, including the neck, stomach, arms, and thighs. The best patients for nonsurgical skin tightening:
- 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 enhance the health and appearance of their skin
To begin the session, the skin being treated will be sanitized to remove any oils, cosmetics, and lotions. Local anesthesia options can be considered if you would prefer, but most patients find that discomfort (if any) during the laser procedure is temporary and manageable. As soon as you are ready, a ThermiRF® handpiece will be passed evenly over the targeted areas two or more times for the most effective treatment. The energy emitted by the handpiece encourages the body’s natural healing properties to being the production of collagen and elastin, which will tighten and firm the skin. The procedure can take about 30 – 90 minutes depending on the size and if multiple areas are being treated. After the session is complete, you will be able to leave and resume your daily activities.
What to Expect
After your nonsurgical skin tightening appointment, the treated areas may be mildly inflamed, numb, or red. This is expected and should clear up on its own within several days. During your consult, Dr. Lyle will talk about the best ways to care for your skin after your session, like keeping it moisturized and protected from sun and environmental damage. Most patients will not have visible results immediately after the session. Since collagen and elastin stimulation and production is a gradual process, you can see the full results of your treatment around 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 require multiple treatments to get your ideal outcome. During your consultation, Dr. Lyle will help you determine your personalized treatment plan based on your concerns and goals.
Dr. Glenn Lyle Plastic Surgery Reviews
Could not asked for a better doctor to do my tummy tuck. Everyone in the office is wonderful along with Dr. Lyle.
Dr. Lyle performed a reduction/lift on me after another area surgeon totally screwed it up.. He was amazing and the results are breathtaking.. doing revision surgery is VERY HARD.. His gentleness with me, explaining everything.. taking time to talk to me beforehand and video talk to me just to make me feel confident meant everything.. I HIGHLY recommend him.. and his staff.
I went to see Erin for Botox. She is a WONDERFUL injector. She knows exactly what you need and shares her expertise with you. She has a soft hand, makes sure you are comfortable and gives you the best results. The front office staff are a joy. They are friendly and knowledgable. I highly recommend Dr, Lyle's office!
Dr. Lyle, You are the best Plastic Surgeon! Thank you for the superb surgical artistry with my Breast Mastopexy. You have changed my life and I wish I didn't wait until I was 52. How do I begin to let you know how much I appreciate what you did for me? You actually gave me back my self-image. I think, without realizing it, I had lost it for a while. I had become so self-conscious of my breasts that I felt that was all people saw when they looked at me. I can't get over the difference!! It's like night and day! You have quite a gift. I'm thrilled with the results. No more neck, shoulder or back pain and can now begin working on my posture (girls out). I am three months post-op and over the moon about my results. So grateful! Lastly, I want to let you know that your staff is the BEST (as if you don't already know that). They were all friendly, courteous and accommodating. I never once felt like just another patient in your office. Thank you!
Dr. Lyle did plastic surgery between my toes removing tissue after a poisonous spider bite and while he was looking over my spider bike, he noticed something on my face he was concerned with, something dermatologists had been looking at for 8 years. It was Lentigo Maligna Melanoma, he just may have saved my life. He did a biopsy and surgery within a week! He care, he goes above and beyond, such a wonderful bedside manor. So calm, knowledgeable, absolute perfection in his surgery on foot and especially my face/lip... cannot say enough good things about him. I have had weight loss surgery, and he will be the person I have called to do some abdominal reconstructive surgery. He is the best and I have recommended many people to him over the years, they too were so happy with their procedures. Best of luck to you, Dr. Lyle is your doctor for sure!
