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 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.

"Had a recent appointment with Ashley to go over my upcoming surgery. She was very professional and thorough in preparing me for what to expect.

"Recently had my very first appt with Ashley, the PA. After being essentially ignored by my Urologist for nearly 15 months, Ashley immediately addressed my concerns and got a preliminary diagnosis in place, along with treatment and additional testing. I left Ashley’s office in tears because I felt so relieved that someone finally listened to me after suffering for so long. I finally feel like I am in the best hands possible. Thank you, Ashley, for being the epitome of utmost professionalism."- A.C. / Google / Oct 29, 2023
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.
