What is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?
Advanced technology has allowed patients to achieve firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin with a noninvasive procedure known as nonsurgical skin tightening. At Voci Plastic Surgery, we offer two options for this treatment: Ultherapy® and plasma skin tightening. Each of these procedures targets the skin’s deep layers to trigger collagen growth. Since collagen plays a role in skin elasticity, once it’s stimulated, this begins the process of skin rejuvenation. Charlotte, NC plastic surgeon Dr. Vincent Voci is able to obtain outstanding results for patients who wish to improve their appearance without the use of traditional surgery.
How is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Performed?
Nonsurgical skin tightening — whether with plasma or Ultherapy — is an in-office, outpatient procedure that is performed without the use of anesthesia. Once the targeted areas to be treated are confirmed, the practitioner will utilize a handheld device in order to treat these areas. During the procedure, patients will feel a mild warming sensation or prickling beneath their skin. This procedure does not cause pain nor does it cause discomfort in most cases.

What Results Can I Expect from Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?
This treatment will produce a “boost” in the skin’s appearance almost immediately following the procedure. However, optimal results typically reveal themselves over time within 2 – 3 months. This is because elastic collagen builds over time, producing results slowly and effectively. While neither Ultherapy nor plasma skin tightening can produce the dramatic results that surgery typically can, they are great alternatives for those seeking subtle changes without having to undergo surgery.
Nonsurgical Skin Tightening FAQ
Am I an ideal candidate?
Ultherapy and plasma skin tightening are ideal procedures for individuals that are not comfortable with an invasive surgical procedure but still want to see noticeable results. Additionally, they are perfect for anyone that has noticed a “relaxing” of their skin.
How long do the results last?
Results can be seen immediately following the procedure. However, it is more common for patients to see results a few months following their procedure. Patients can expect the results to last for a year, at which time, they could undergo another procedure.
How many treatments will I need?
The amount of treatments required for optimal results depends on the patient and their goals. Some patients will only need a single treatment session while others will require several.
