What does skin tightening mean?

Skin tightening refers to various cosmetic procedures aimed at improving the skin’s firmness and elasticity. As you age, lose weight, and experience stress, your skin may lose some natural elasticity and sag or loosen. Skin tightening treatments can help address these concerns by stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin.

Collagen is a protein that helps maintain the skin's structure by providing scaffolding for the underlying tissue. Over time, the body's natural production of collagen decreases, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. 

Skin tightening treatments promote new collagen production, which may lead to a firmer and more youthful appearance.

Does skin tightening work without surgery?

At North Texas Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Greenberg uses the Renuvion cosmetic technology to tighten skin without surgery.  

The Renuvion system is an affordable option for patients interested in neck lifts, tummy tucks, arm lifts, mini breast lifts, thigh lifts, and other procedures that involve the following body parts:

  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Breasts
  • Back (including the bra line)
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Knees
  • Thighs (inner and outer)

Whether you have loose skin from pregnancy, weight loss, or natural aging, Renuvion can help you achieve the tighter shape you desire.

How is Renuvion skin tightening unique?

Unlike traditional methods that involve surgical excision, Renuvion uses innovative cool plasma energy to target and tighten loose or excess skin. Dr. Greenberg was the first cosmetic surgeon in North Texas to offer his patients this groundbreaking technology to help them achieve a firmer and more youthful appearance.

I’m getting Renuvion skin tightening. What can I expect?

Dr. Greenberg performs this in-office procedure using tumescent (local) anesthesia. Because you don’t need to undergo general anesthesia, you stay awake and can return home shortly after the procedure.

Renuvion treatment involves creating a few six-millimeter incisions in the targeted area. Dr. Greenberg carefully places the Renuvion device beneath the skin. This device emits RF-induced cool plasma energy to stimulate a fibro-septal network (fibrous bands) contraction between the skin and underlying muscles. This contraction promotes skin tightening over the next 6-10 months.
