As your skin ages, you may find yourself missing the tightness and vibrancy it possessed in your youth. The natural effects of getting older and a lifetime of sun damage can wreak havoc on your skin, causing a loss of collagen and elasticity plus changes to the tone and texture. If you’ve noticed jowls, volume loss, or sagging skin recently, you may be worried that a facelift is your only option. Fortunately, Dermatology Realm has a variety of nonsurgical and minimally invasive solutions available to tighten your skin, restore lost volume, and create a healthy glow!
Luckily, you no longer have to choose between the status quo and surgery.

Using nonsurgical therapies, our expert team is able to give you skin that’s:

When you schedule a consultation in our Germantown office, Dr. Baker can help you choose the right option for the improvements you want to make. Let’s take a closer look at what we have available and how these treatments can help turn back the hands of time!
Sciton ST offers our patients a fast, safe and effective treatment tailored for all skin types. The system uses an infrared light source to tighten your skin predictably, effectively, and comfortably for a firmer and more youthful appearance. It does this by utilizing advanced infrared light technology to deeply heat the dermal collagen while continuously protecting the area being treated with sapphire contact cooling.
The Sciton ST system is so gentle that there’s no need for even a topical anesthetic! Energy is delivered in rapid pulses to promote contraction and partial clotting of the collagen, which initiates the body’s natural healing process and leads to the appearance of firmer tissue. Since there’s no downtime, patients are able to resume their regular activities immediately following treatment.
Thermascan is another non-invasive procedure that targets the collagen layer of the skin, erasing fine lines and tightening loose skin. Like Sciton ST, this treatment uses an infrared laser to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out! The laser energy delivered by Thermascan penetrates into the upper layers of your skin, and is then absorbed by the targeted areas. This stimulates the fibroblast cells in the skin to begin generating collagen, while cooling technology protects the sensitive layers of your skin.
Because the collagen and elastin fibers will continue to multiply after the initial treatment, patients will see results improve over a period of weeks to months. It offers precision skin tightening by stimulating collagen growth, and does it all with no downtime! It typically requires four treatments, four weeks apart, and includes your face and neck. Patients love the way Thermascan helps to restore the natural beauty of their skin, making it softer, smoother, and more vibrant.
Ultherapy is a new non-invasive skin tightening procedure that uses ultrasound with your body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. This non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift can also counteract signs of aging on the neck and chest, as well as drooping of the brow area.
Ultherapy targets areas beneath the skin with focused ultrasound energy to support the regeneration of collagen. The heat energy from the applicator is aimed at three different depths: the muscle, skin, and any superficial wrinkles. This stimulates collagen and elastic tissue, resulting in firmer skin, less sagging, and fewer wrinkles in the treated areas.
A single procedure can last anywhere from 90-120 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. There’s no downtime involved with Ultherapy, and patients will typically see the first results within a few days. After this short-term “boost,” the natural process of creating new, more elastic collagen will continue to build over time.
