WHAT IS NS Skin Tightening?
When you're born, your body has a full supply of the nutrients (elastin and collagen) that help to make your skin smooth, soft, resilient, and healthy. But eventually, this natural supply of nutrients begins to run low, which causes the skin of your face and body to decrease in elasticity. This then leads to sagging, hanging skin. If you want to improve the tautness and overall appearance of your skin without committing to surgery, consider nonsurgical skin tightening at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery in Doylestown, PA.
Utilizing advanced technology, nonsurgical skin tightening stimulates the natural generation of elastin and collagen in the targeted areas so you can have firmer, healthier skin. During your initial consultation, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino will be pleased to tell you all about the process and benefits of this procedure. Nonsurgical tightening is great for those wishing to firm the skin on their face or body without the recovery time and expense of an invasive procedure. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Tamburrino in Doylestown, PA to learn more or find out if you could be a candidate.

"I highly recommend Dr. Joseph Tamburrino and his wonderful staff! I had breast cancer and was devastated at the internet photos of breast reconstruction. I did not want to look like that!

I don’t feel like and look like I have had breast reconstruction. I can’t say enough of Dr. Tamburrino’s wonderful bed side manner. He makes me feel important and cared for.

"I can not say enough about the wonderful care I have received from Dr. Tamburrino. I have a very complicated medical history and was on steroids for 2 years. I developed Breast Cancer and had Bilateral Mastectomies. Dr. Tamburrino expertise cautioned me against Reconstruction until I tapered and was off the steroids. I was extremely disappointed however his opinion to wait was the proper thing to do. It was worth the wait as I go through weekly visits since January to have my expanders develop. His kind, caring, professional manner down right enjoyable. I had not been having trouble with pain until as I draw nearer to the end. I had one week where I was experiencing more pain than usual. As it progressed I called Dr. Tamburrino who saw me in minutes at his office. I fortunately was visiting family in Doylestown because I live two hours away. It was Easter Eve at 10 pm he saw me and relieved my terrible pain. So willing, helpful and kind! He has been the most amazing physician, when dealing with a Cancer diagnosis having him help me through this Reconstruction has been an uplifting experience. Anna his nurse makes you feel like family. She’s been supportive and caring. Kristen his Administrative Assistant is always upbeat and helpful! At the time waiting a year seemed so awful, but Dr.Tamburrino’ s professional opinion was totally in my best interest and I know now that giving me the best care was his goal. Thanks Dr. T, you are the BEST!! Lyn McNair"- L.M. / Google / Aug 29, 2019
who can get ns tightening?
Surgery for skin tightening or "lifts" (like a face or body lift) remains the most effective way to minimize loose, sagging skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening may help those who do not wish to undergo or commit to cosmetic surgery. Nonsurgical skin tightening procedures may be performed on many areas of the body and face, such as the neck, stomach, thighs, and arms. The best patients for this procedure are men or women who:
- Are in good overall health
- Are near or at a stable, healthy weight
- Have a small or mild amount of loose skin on the face or body
- Have wrinkles or lines on the face or body
- Want to boost the health and appearance of their skin
how does ns tightening work?
Before your session, the areas to be treated will be cleaned to eliminate any oils and lotions. Local anesthesia can be applied if requested, but most patients feel that any pain during the laser treatment is temporary and easy to tolerate. After your skin is prepared, a handpiece will be passed evenly over the skin multiple times to ensure effective coverage of the area. The laser energy prompts the body to start producing elastin and collagen, which tightens and firms the skin. A session may take about 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated. After the treatment is complete, you'll be allowed to leave and get back to your daily activities.
What to Expect
Following your skin tightening procedure, the treated area may be somewhat numb, red, or swollen. However, this is completely normal and should resolve naturally within 2 – 3 days. During your initial consultation, Dr. Tamburrino will discuss methods to care for your skin after your procedure, such as keeping the skin protected and moisturized from the sun. Most patients will not see visible improvements immediately after their treatment. Since the elastin and collagen stimulation and production is a slow process, you can expect to see the final results of your treatment within 2 – 6 months after your session. Your results should be long-lasting and continue to improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. You may require multiple treatments to achieve your ideal outcome. During your consultation, Dr. Tamburrino will help you create your unique treatment plan to meet your needs and cosmetic goals.
