About Skin Tightening
At birth, your body has a full supply of collagen and elastin that keeps your skin smooth, soft, healthy, and resilient. However, this supply of nutrients runs low and the skin of the face and body decreases in elasticity, leading to lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. If you want to improve the firmness and overall appearance of your skin without plastic surgery, consider nonsurgical skin tightening at Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa. With advanced technology, nonsurgical skin tightening encourages the production of collagen and elastin in the treated areas so you can have firmer, healthier skin. During the assessment and consultation, our skilled aesthetic team will be pleased to offer nonsurgical skin tightening to our Santa Rosa, CA patients wishing to tone the skin on their face and body or reduce cellulite without the recovery time and expense of a surgical lift procedure. Schedule a consultation at our innovative facility in Santa Rosa, CA to find out more about nonsurgical skin tightening with NuEra, Venus Freeze, and Venus Legacy technology.
NuEra utilizes temperature-controlled radiofrequency (RF) technology to penetrate and heat the superficial and deeper layers of the skin. With accurate frequency and deep heating, NuEra can improve the appearance of cellulite, as well as treat skin laxity. NuEra can be used to treat various areas of the body and face and has advanced temperature technology that allows for more comfortable treatments.
Using multi-polar radiofrequency and pulsed electro-magnetic fields, Venus Freeze can reduce fine lines and wrinkles to create firmer, smoother skin. Most frequently used on the face and neck, Venus Freeze stimulates the increase in the production of collagen and elasticity. It is also safe and effective for all skin tones and requires little to no downtime.
Similar to Venus Freeze, Venus Legacy also uses multi-polar radiofrequency combined with pulsed electromagnetic fields. Venus Legacy has the capability to reduce fat cells, as well as increase collagen production. Additionally, Venus Legacy utilizes pulsed suction technology to pull the skin upward, providing skin tightening and cellulite reduction.

Surgery for skin tightening or "lift" procedures, like a face or body lift, remain the most effective option to improve sagging, loose skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening can help if you do not wish to undergo cosmetic surgery. Nonsurgical skin tightening procedures can be done on most areas of the face and body, including the neck, stomach, arms, and thighs. The best patients for this procedure:
- Are in good overall health
- Are at or near a healthy, stable weight
- Have mild to moderate skin looseness on the face or body
- Have lines, wrinkles, or cellulite on the face or body
- Want to enhance the health and appearance of their skin
To start the session, the skin being treated will be sanitized to remove any makeup, dirt, or oil. Local anesthesia options can be considered if you would prefer, but most patients find that any mild discomfort during the laser energy is temporary and manageable. As soon as you are ready, a handpiece with the laser will be passed evenly over the skin multiple times for the most effective treatment. The energy prompts the body's natural healing properties to produce collagen and elastin, which tightens and firms the skin. The procedure can take about 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. After the session is complete, you will be able to leave and resume your daily activities.
What to Expect
After your nonsurgical skin tightening appointment, the treated areas may be mildly inflamed, numb, or red. This is expected and should clear up on its own within several days. During your consult, we will talk about the best ways to care for your skin after your session, like keeping the skin moisturized and protected from sun and environmental damage. Most patients will not have visible results immediately after the session. Since the collagen and elastin stimulation and production is a gradual process, you can have the total results of your treatment around 2 – 6 months after the procedure. However, these results should be long-lasting and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. You may require multiple treatments to get the ideal outcome. During your consultation, our team will help you determine your personalized treatment plan, including which technology is best for you, based on your concerns and goals.
