About Skin Tightening
At birth, you have a full stock of the nutrients collagen and elastin that keep your skin soft, smooth, resilient, and healthy. However, this stock of nutrients becomes depleted, and the skin of your body and face decreases in resiliency, causing wrinkles, lines, and skin that sags.

"Warning: long post I call my cancer diagnosis “the gift that keeps on giving”. When I was referred to Dr. Walters, I had gone through 8 surgeries and was experiencing a 4-way contraction on the right side as a result of radiation after reconstruction. This caused me to be in pain 24 hours a day. Dr. Walters gave me hope that I could live without that pain and he did a fat transfer from my stomach to make a new breast. The pain was gone. This past November I had the second phase of the surgery which was to give me symmetry, to reconstruct the nipples which were misshapen, and to transfer fat to give fullness where needed. The surgery was a success for me. I can look at myself in the mirror and I am okay with what I see now. I live two and a half hours from Dr. Walters’ offices. Dr. Walters and his staff were kind, responsive, and accommodating to my needs to say the least. My questions which were numerous were answered in a timely manner. During difficult times, Dr. Walters was able to see me quickly and he was willing to discuss options by phone. I am a happy patient and at every visit I was asked if I was happy with the results. I can say that I am very pleased and happy with my results and with the care I was given by Dr. Walters and all of his staff!"- D.B. / Google / May 29, 2019
Surgery for skin tightening (like a face or body lift) is still the best option to improve loose, sagging skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening may be a good option if you don't want to have cosmetic surgery. These procedures may be done on many areas of the body and face such as the stomach, neck, thighs, and arms. The ideal patients for this treatment:
- Are in good general health
- Are near or at a stable, healthy weight
- Have light or medium loose skin on the body or face
- Have wrinkles or lines on the body or face
- Want to enhance the appearance and health of their skin
To start the session, the skin to be treated will be sanitized to eliminate any dirt, oil, makeup, and lotions. Local anesthesia options may be considered if you would prefer; however, many patients feel that any possible pain from the radiofrequency energy is temporary and manageable. As soon as you are ready, the ThermiRF handpiece will be evenly passed over the targeted skin two or more times for an efficient session. The radiofrequency energy released by the handpiece encourages the body to begin the production of elastin and collagen that will firm and tighten the skin. A session may take around 30 – 90 minutes based on the size and if multiple areas are being treated. Once the session is complete, you'll be allowed to leave and get back to your daily routine.
What to Expect
Following your skin tightening appointment, the affected skin can be mildly inflamed, numb, or red. This is expected and it will clear up naturally in several days. In your consult, Dr. Walters will talk about methods to care for the treated skin at home after your session, like keeping the skin protected and moisturized from the sun and environmental damage. Many patients won't have noticeable improvements right after their session. Since the elastin and collagen stimulation and production is a slow process, you should see the total results of the procedure around several months after your session. However, your results should last a long time and enhance the general appearance and health of your skin. You will probably require several sessions to achieve the most ideal outcome. At your initial consultation, Dr. Walters can help you determine your personalized plan for treatment to meet your concerns and goals.
