What Is Skin Tightening?

At Mississippi Institute of Weight Loss & Gulf Coast Aesthetics, we are proud to provide some of the most cutting-edge cosmetic solutions currently available. Plasma skin tightening is a noninvasive solution that employs premium technology by Alma Opus Plasma® to tighten and firm droopy skin tissue. RF and microplasma pulses are released into the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin generation and provide a tighter, youthful-looking skin appearance. With this treatment, Dr. Donald Balder can lift loose, sagging skin tissue and creases near the brow area, eyes, neck, mid-face, and around the mouth. Dr. Balder can also use this cutting-edge technology for brown and red color correction to treat dark spots on the skin caused by hyperpigmentation or melasma. Reach out to our staff in Gulfport, MS to book a consultation to find out if plasma skin tightening is beneficial for your cosmetic needs.

What are the Benefits of Skin Tightening?

Loose skin is a common but unwelcome sign of aging. Now you don’t have to submit to cosmetic surgery to seem refreshed and youthful-looking. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from plasma skin tightening with our team:

  • Noninvasive treatment: Plasma skin tightening is a nonsurgical procedure that requires no incisions or anesthesia.
  • Natural results: The Alma Opus Plasma stimulates natural collagen production for gradual, realistic-looking results.
  • No downtime: You won’t have to spend weeks in recovery following skin tightening treatment. Many of our patients return to their regular activities after leaving our office.
  • Long-lasting outcomes: We provide long-term, lasting results if you practice proper skin care following your appointment.

Plasma skin tightening with the Opus Plasma platform might be an excellent option for those not candidates for more invasive aesthetic surgeries. This procedure can be performed on several regions of the face and neck. The most suitable candidates for this RF and microplasma procedure:

  • Are in good overall health
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Notice a mild or moderate degree of skin laxity
  • Have dynamic wrinkles on their face or neck
  • Wish to enhance the vitality and appearance of their complexion

The minute you arrive at Mississippi Institute of Weight Loss & Gulf Coast Aesthetics for your session, we'll thoroughly clean the necessary sites. We may provide a numbing ointment to soothe the area during your procedure; however, many individuals report that any minor irritation is fleeting and tolerable. After preparing your skin, we will evenly run the handpiece over your skin multiple times for your best results. This technology helps encourage your body's innate creation of nutrients and vitamins, which tightens and firms the skin in time. Your procedure will most likely last about 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and extent of the treatment region. As soon as your appointment is finished, you'll be able to return to your routine.

After the completion of your treatment, the targeted regions may look red or swollen, and it's possible for the skin to feel numb. However, any irritation should resolve within several days. At your first appointment at Mississippi Institute of Weight Loss & Gulf Coast Aesthetics, we will review the best ways to preserve your skin after your session. As you recover, using a moisturizing cream and applying sunscreen is essential. Most men and women won’t see results immediately after their treatment. Since collagen and elastin production is gradual, you can look forward to seeing your final results within the next few months. Outcomes following nonsurgical skin tightening usually last for many years.

I have been a patient of Dr. Balder for the last 10 months and cannot say enough good things about him and his practice. My office visits have consisted of hormone replacement therapy, threads, and Opus Plasma for acne scarring. I left each visit pleased with the positive effects of the treatment provided. He has taken the time to listen to my concerns and formulated the best plan for me. His office staff is extremely pleasant and knowledgeable as well. If you are looking for a Doctor that has patience, understanding and provides what you are actually looking for, I HIGHLY recommend Dr Balder.

About Us
How much does skin tightening cost?

The price of skin tightening may fluctuate based on the number of procedures recommended to achieve your goals. When you have your first appointment, Dr. Balder will learn about your objectives to formulate a customized treatment strategy that includes a pricing estimate.

What is the expected healing time after Opus Plasma skin tightening?

There's almost no recovery time after the plasma skin rejuvenation procedure. Following your treatment, you will likely experience small, pinpoint scabs on the treated area, but they should fall off naturally within approximately a week. We recommend that you abstain from picking at your skin and sun exposure as your skin heals.

Will my plasma skin tightening results be long-lasting?

Most people at Mississippi Institute of Weight Loss & Gulf Coast Aesthetics notice a reduction in wrinkles and droopy skin following the first skin rejuvenation session, but our team often suggests planning 2 – 3 sessions to achieve the optimal result. When you have your aesthetic consultation, Dr. Balder will suggest the optimal amount of sessions based on the laxity of your skin as well as your aesthetic needs.
