Most patients report noticing an improvement shortly after their first appointment.*

Skin TighteningHow do skin-tightening procedures work?

You have options when it comes to skin-tightening procedures. Your Beard Dermatology practitioner works with you to find a solution that gets you the results you want, in the most affordable way possible. 

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and produces less collagen which can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. The Plasma Pen Skin Tightening device is a soft surgery method and a revolutionary technique for perfect facial rejuvenation. It is important to stress that this is a non-surgical approach where no scalpels or any other surgical instruments are used. 

Plasma Pen treatment begins with a consultation appointment to determine if this procedure is right for you with one of our expert providers. Treatment typically lasts less than an hour. The Plasma Pen delivers oxygen and nitrogen plasma which creates a thermal reaction that stimulates collagen. The skin rejuvenates through healing and small scabs that will form on the treated area(s). When the scabs fall off after several days, a fresh, tightened, and youthful skin will be revealed.

Which areas of my skin can a doctor tighten?

Your Beaird Dermatologist practitioner can treat just about any problem area you may have. With so many options available, they can tighten and tone skin on your:

  • Face and neck
  • Arms and hands
  • Chest and back
  • Décolletage

Each skin-tightening package is tailored to your needs. If you have another area that you’re concerned about, talk with your practitioner. They can help you decide which skin-tightening treatment is best for that specific area.

Is skin tightening painful?

Not at all. With chemical peels, you may feel some tingling and burning, but it doesn’t last long. Patients who undergo microneedling report feeling some discomfort initially, although usually applying a topical numbing solution resolves that issue. If you decide laser treatments are best for you, expect to feel some warmth in the treatment area, but not any pain.

Does nonsurgical skin tightening last a long time?

Yes, particularly the Excel V and J-Plasma treatments, since your skin actually heals itself from the inside out. But no matter which treatment you choose, expect to have long-lasting results. Applying sunscreen daily and protecting your skin from harmful environmental pollution help your results last even longer. You can have treatments repeated again later on, just so you can continue to enjoy your new youthful glow.
