What is RF Skin Tightening?
The firm and radiant skin of our youth will inevitably change over time as the amount of the collagen and elastin in our skin cells begin to decrease. As this natural supply of nutrients runs low, skin will decrease in firmness, leading to the common signs of aging. Skin becomes lax and could droop. If you want to improve the firmness and general health of your skin without plastic surgery, ask us about RF skin tightening with NuEra™ by Lumenis®. Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in Port St. Lucie, FL utilizes this advanced equipment to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen in the treated areas so you can have taut, radiant skin. During your consultation, Dr. Darrell Lee will be happy to discuss the benefits of RF skin tightening before possibly performing the procedure during the same visit.
NuEra is highly effective in the reduction of cellulite. Using intelligent, temperature-controlled technology, NuEra works superficially and deep beneath the skin to treat skin laxity and improve the appearance of cellulite. The system offers consistent results and allows the patient the freedom to return to their daily activities without extended recoveries and downtimes.
"Absolutely the most kind, caring and patient staff and Dr Lee is amazing. He is so good at what he does. I've had a few procedures done both in office and at surgery center. I'd recommend Dr Lee to anyone who is looking for a board certified plastic surgeon. I'm so thankful to have chosen them!"- A. / Healthgrades / Feb 09, 2019
"A few years ago, I had the good fortune to book an appointment with Dr. Lee. Recommendations from a friend are so important, right? I had no idea at the time that the services that Dr. Lee, Trisha, Michelle, Dana & Sheila each provide, would have me coming back for all my skincare needs. My recommendation? The expertise is A+. The kindness, willingness to assist and first class service is more than I could have asked for. You will not be disappointed!"- A.T. / Facebook / Apr 29, 2020
"I was referred to Dr. Lee by my dermatologist after a surgery for skin cancer on my nose. Could not be happier with the outcome of the reconstructive surgery. I went in with a dime sized hole on the bridge of my nose. I came out 3 weeks later with virtually no scars and barely of trace of the surgery. Everything from the scheduling, consultation, surgery and efficiency of the office staff made the entire experience spectacular."- K.A. / Healthgrades / Mar 29, 2020
"As a surgeon Dr. Lee is the greatest. When he becomes a Democrat he will be even greater.. Exactly"- J.R. / Google / Mar 09, 2020
"Dr Lee is a remarkable surgeon. I had to deal with 6 surgeries in 2 years due to breast cancer. We all need to remember all surgeries do have chances of complications and I had complications with each one. His PA are remarkable! They are very caring and listen to your needs and will help you through the process. I just completed my services with Dr Lee and very happy with the outcome of the process. We all just need to remember; we will not be exactly the same prior to cancer however Dr Lee does an excellent job."- L.S. / Google / Mar 06, 2020
Who Makes A Good Candidate For Treatment?
RF skin tightening may be an option if you are interested in attaining firmer skin but don't want to undergo plastic surgery. NuEra skin tightening treatments may be used on most areas of the face and body, such as the abs, under the chin, décolleté, above the knees, inner/outer thighs, and upper arms. The best patients for this procedure:
- Are in good overall health
- Are at or near a healthy weight
- Have early-onset or moderate skin laxity on their face or body
- Have lines or wrinkles or cellulite
- Want to enhance the firmness and appearance of their skin
How RF Skin Tightening Works
To begin your treatment, a member of our team will clean your skin and remove any oils, makeup, or lotions. Once you are ready, the NuEra device will be evenly passed or rolled over the treatment area several times for an effective session. The radiofrequency energy stimulates the body’s natural healing properties to produce collagen and elastin, which tightens and firms the skin. The treatment may take around 30 – 90 minutes based on the size and number of areas being treated. After the session is over, you'll be allowed to leave and return to your daily routine.
After Your Session
After your treatment, the affected areas may be tender, red, or swollen. This is common and will heal on its own in a few days. During your consultation, Dr. Lee will discuss the best ways to care for the treated area at home after your session, like keeping the skin moisturized and protected from sun and environmental damage. Many patients will not have noticeable results right after their session. Since collagen and elastin stimulation and growth is a gradual process, you should see the full results of the treatment within a few days of your session. However, these results should be long-lasting and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.
