Radiofrequency skin tightening is a procedure that has been offered under a variety of treatment names for several years. However, it can be a cost-prohibitive option for some patients. With NuEra by Lumenis—offered here at Perfection Plastic Surgery and Skin Care—there is now an affordable skin tightening solution that delivers consistent, effective results for the face and body. NuEra is a non-invasive RF treatment that can improve both skin laxity and the appearance of cellulite with treatment sessions as short as 10-15 minutes.
Finally, an Affordable Skin Tightening Solution
NuEra is an RF skin tightening treatment designed for optimal ease of use, which translates to shorter treatment times. This is one reason why NuEra offers an affordable price point. A 6 treatment package for the face or other small areas is $1200. Larger areas are treated with a 6 treatment package for $1500. Following the initial 6 treatment protocol, individual treatment sessions may be booked starting at $199 per treatment area.
How NuEra Works
As a radiofrequency skin tightening solution, NuEra works by delivering heat energy to superficial and deep layers of skin. This heat energy causes the body to react with a healing response in the skin cells, which helps to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is the protein responsible for maintaining the skin’s smoothness and elasticity, and it naturally declines in the body as we age. So, triggering new collagen production helps to smooth and tighten skin in problem areas. With deeper heating, RF energy can break up connective tissues to diminish the appearance of cellulite.
Areas Treated by NuEra
NuEra allows your physician to precisely control heat depth and frequency based on your target treatment areas. Therefore, it optimizes treatment efficacy on the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, bra and back fat, as well as around the eyes, mouth, cheeks and neck.
Your Treatment Timeline
NuEra utilizes a two-step treatment process to allow you to maintain smooth, beautiful skin for years to come. The first step is GetSmooth, which will comprise your initial treatment package to meet your goals. Some areas may be treated with just one initial treatment session. For treatments targeting the face, 10-15 minutes is the full treatment time. Areas of the body will take 20-25 minutes to treat. There is no downtime, and treatment is gentle and comfortable. Step 2 of your treatment is StaySmooth. This will be for your maintenance touchup treatments, which may be scheduled as often as once every 3-4 months to keep your results looking great.
Is treatment comfortable?
Because NuEra uses radiofrequency energy to target the deepest layers of skin, it is not invasive or painful. You may feel a deep warming sensation as energy penetrates the skin, but you should be comfortable throughout your treatment.
Will there be any downtime after treatment?
NuEra is gentle enough to schedule as a “lunchtime” procedure. Therefore, you can go about your routine immediately after treatment. However, you may have some sensitivity in the skin as well as some temporary redness.
Is NuEra only for aging skin concerns?
While NuEra is highly effective in treating sagging skin and wrinkles, it is also ideal for patients with cellulite, rough skin texture, and other non-age related skin concerns.
How long will my results last?
Because NuEra causes changes deep within the structure of the skin, results won’t develop right away. However, they also won’t diminish quickly either. Increased collagen production in the skin will mean smoother, tighter skin for months or even years to come. You can also schedule annual maintenance treatments to keep your skin looking its best.
