What is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?
As we begin to age, the firmness of our skin changes because the nutrients that keep the skin soft, healthy, and resilient start to diminish. Eventually, when these essential nutrients run low, your skin loses its firmness. This causes signs of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. If you want to improve the tautness and overall appearance of your skin without cosmetic surgery, consider nonsurgical skin tightening at JEM Medspa in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL. Using state-of-the-art technology, Exilis® and SkinTyte™ nonsurgical skin tightening encourages the production of collagen and elastin so you develop taut, glowing skin. During your consultation, we can assess your skin and determine if this innovative treatment is right for you. We offer nonsurgical skin tightening to patients who want to firm their skin without the recovery time and expense of a surgical facelift. Schedule an appointment with one of our expert team members to learn more about nonsurgical skin tightening.

Is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening For You?
To reduce the appearance of sagging skin, surgery for skin tightening is still the best treatment option. However, nonsurgical skin tightening is an excellent procedure for patients who don't qualify for invasive cosmetic surgery. We can perform nonsurgical skin tightening on different areas of the body and face, such as the neck, abs, inner/outer thighs, and upper arms. This treatment works well for patients who:
- Maintain good, overall health
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Experience early-onset or moderate skin looseness on their face or body
- Experience signs of aging on their face or body
- Want to enhance the health and appearance of their skin
How Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Works
To begin your appointment, we will clean the treatment area and remove any oil or lotions. If needed, patients can request a numbing cream; however, most patients find the discomfort brief and easily tolerated. Once you are ready, we will evenly pass a specialized device over the treatment area and repeat the process. The energy prompts the body to start producing elastin and collagen, which firms and tightens the skin. Depending on the size and number of areas we treat, an appointment can take around 30 – 90 minutes. Once the treatment is over, you can leave and resume your daily activities.
After Your Session
After your skin tightening treatment, the affected skin will appear slightly red, swollen, or numb. These side effects are normal, and they should naturally subside in 2 – 3 days. Following your treatment, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions to help your skin heal. Patients should moisturize and protect the skin from sun exposure. Immediately after the procedure, you will not see visible improvements. Because the elastin and collagen production is a gradual process, the final results show within 2 – 6 months after your initial session. However, your results should last a long time and will enhance the general health and appearance of your skin. To achieve the best results, you will probably need several treatments. During your consultation, we will create a custom treatment plan that outlines how many follow-up appointments you may need.
