Radio frequency (RF) skin tightening can improve the elasticity of the skin with a nonsurgical procedure for patients who have mild to moderate skin looseness. RF skin tightening improves the overall skin texture and tone by eliminating lines and wrinkles on any skin type and color for great results that correct signs of mild aging in Plano and Frisco patients. Dr. Aimee Nguyen, a double board-certified urogynecologist and plastic surgeon in the North Dallas area, can use RF skin tightening treatments on the loose skin around the eyes, the forehead, the neck, and the cheeks.

PA Tien along with staff Brenda, Veronica, Kennedy, Siuma, Anjelica, Marissa and Nina are awesome. Dr.Aimee explained why I was experiencing pain, what needs to be done. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Aimee doing my surgery. I will update review after surgery."- G.B. / Google / Aug 26, 2020

"My Experience- 5 star! The staff is amazing. I felt so comfortable. Every step of my surgery & recovery, especially during COVID, was explained in great detail! There were no surprises. I felt so fed up w/ the leakage, pressure, social anxiety, due to unknown leaks. The results are amazing. No more pressure, no more leaks, no more embarrassing moments. Dr. Nguyen was absolutely amazing!"- CY / Office Visit / Jan 20, 2021

The recovery went well as well."- C.G. / Healthgrades / Jan 09, 2021
"After seeing two urologists, dealing with frequent UTI’s and overactive bladder over a period of two years plus trying several medications that did not work, my primary Doctor referred me to Dr. Aimee Nguyen. I saw her P.A., Tian at my first appointment, and though disappointed at first not to see the doctor, I learned more about UTI’s and my step by step options than I could imagine. She also diagnosed a rectal prolapse. I had a couple more appointments involving diagnostic tests. Dr. Nguyen diagnosed a bladder lesion during a cystoscopy and suggested surgery to excise it as well as repair the rectal prolapse - two separate surgeries at the same time. I really didn’t know what to expect, and was worried about postop pain and recovery time. Dr. Nguyen explained the procedures and patiently answered my questions which calmed my nerves. Surgery went well, pre and postop. I am now four weeks post op. I can honestly say I had no pain following surgery. I would highly recommend Dr Aimee Nguyen and her staff at North Dallas Urogynecology. The annoying and painful bladder symptoms are gone! Thank you Dr. Nguyen!!"- K.Z. / Google / Jan 08, 2021
ThermiTight is an advanced RF skin tightening tools that is approved by the Food & Drug Administration (F.D.A.) to treat skin with low skin elasticity. ThermiTight is a safe, minimally invasive procedure that improves the laxity of the skin. A ThermiTight session improves the condition of the skin better than liposuction techniques and may be a good option for patients over a surgical lift.
After a mild local anesthetic, Dr. Nguyen will thread an RF fiber through a small incision in the skin. The RF fiber will heat the skin tissue, which will trigger collagen production for tighter, healthier skin. Dr. Nguyen will give her patients home care instructions, including 24 hours of rest to minimize redness and swelling. Patients will see mild skin tightening right after the treatment, but final results will be seen in the next few months. Most patients enjoy their results from one treatment of RF skin tightening for 2 or more years.
The total cost of the RF treatment will depend on the size of the treated area and the number of areas being treated, but one treatment session of RF skin tightening usually costs between $2,000 and $5,000. Dr. Nguyen will create a treatment plan for every patient and then provide a more accurate estimate of their costs.

RF Skin Rejuvenation FAQs
RF skin tightening helps patients with mild to moderate skin laxity who want to treat early signs of aging, usually around 30 – 50 years old. RF treatments do not remove excess fat or treat hyperpigmentation concerns. RF skin tightening is usually best for patients who do not need or want a surgical skin tightening procedure, like a facelift.
An RF skin tightening treatment can improve the tone of the skin for 2 or more years. Dr. Nguyen can help the patient decide whether they should continue RF treatments as their results fade or if they will get better results from a surgical treatment.
Surgical Vs. Nonsurgical?
A surgical treatment, like a facelift produces, will remove excess skin as well as contouring the muscle and tissues. RF skin tightening, sometimes called a liquid facelift, improves the elasticity of the skin, but will give the patient subtler results.
