Sagging skin is caused by extreme weight loss, age, and pregnancy among other things, but luckily, there are new technologies that can be used to repair these problems. Miracle Skin Tightening® is a minimally invasive treatment that easily repairs tired, sagging skin with very little downtime. At Chicago Liposuction by Lift Body Center, Miracle Skin Tightening® treatment can be used by both male and female patients. The treatment is appropriate for all ages. The results are striking and patients recover quickly.
The Miracle Skin Tightening® technology uses an innovative radio-frequency (RF) waveform in combination with helium gas to tighten the skin in targeted areas. It works by rejuvenating the tissues between the outer layer of the skin and the underlying muscles. The final outcome of a Miracle Skin Tightening® treatment is a tighter and more youthful appearance in the targeted areas.
Patients expect to see improvements in the elasticity of the skin that ranges between 30% and 80%. The actual results depend on the number of septae that bind the skin tissues to the underlying muscles in the targeted area. Results vary, but all patients see some improvement and tightening of the skin. Many patients get Miracle Skin Tightening® treatments done to remove cellulite and improve the appearance of the skin in various areas of the body. By combining liposuction with a Miracle Skin Tightening® treatment, patients can see even more dramatic results.
It’s common knowledge that a liquid can be changed into a gas by adding energy, but few people know that gases can be changed into plasma by adding energy. Using the Miracle Skin Tightening® system, helium gas is passed through an energized electrode resulting in the development of a cold, low-current plasma. The plasma causes shrinkage to the skin tissues, removing wrinkles to produce a more toned, more youthful appearance. That’s why all patients see some improvement from Miracle Skin Tightening® treatments.
The Miracle Skin Tightening® system works by administering cold plasma energies to the septae, structures located between the skin and muscle tissues. The septae tighten up in response to repair sagging skin. If a person has more septae, the skin becomes tighter in response to treatment. When we administer the Miracle Skin Tightening® treatment under the skin, septae contract instantly increasing support to skin tissues that were floppy or loose before.
Scientists have studied Cold Atmospheric Plasma (CAP) for many years. CAP has the ability to destroy cancer cells as well as certain types of bacterial cells. It’s been used in laparoscopic and robotic surgical procedures and it also has a number of cosmetic applications.
The Miracle Skin Tightening® method can be used to treat almost any part of the body, but below are some of the most popular areas of the body that have been treated with this system:
The Miracle Skin Tightening® system is often combined with other treatment modalities to create more dramatic final results. Treatments such as liposuction meld well with the Miracle Skin Tightening® method and by combining these two treatment modalities, patients can remove excess fat in targeted areas of the body and also tighten the overlying skin at the same time. Liposuction and the Miracle Skin Tightening® system complement each other well and patients are often able to achieve spectacular results by combining these two treatments methods.

The Miracle Skin Tightening® system can be used to treat both male and female patients. Patients who have sagging skin and who would like to regain a youthful appearance in targeted areas of the body are typically good candidates for the procedure. We treat patients between 20 and 70 years of age. Targeted areas vary from patient-to-patient, but the Miracle Skin Tightening® system can be used to treat almost any area of the body. The most common reasons why patients seek out treatment with this method are sagging skin due to the aging process, rapid weight loss, and pregnancy.
Almost any patient can benefit from the Miracle Skin Tightening® system. The best way to find out whether or not you would make a good candidate for this procedure is to schedule an initial consultation with the Chicago Liposuction by Lift Body Center. Initial consultations are always free and we make a thorough examination and listen carefully to what you hope to achieve through treatment and develop a fully customized treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.
The Miracle Skin Tightening® system quickly tightens skin to create a natural, youthful-looking appearance. The procedure does not require large incisions so there are no scars left behind. And local anesthesia is used rather than general anesthesia which means that the safety of the procedure is significantly enhanced. Patients receive a local numbing agent along with a sedative so that patients remain relaxed and comfortable during treatment. The use of a local anesthetic means that the Miracle Skin Tightening® procedure can be administered on an outpatient basis and patients begin the recovery process immediately.
The Miracle Skin Tightening® procedure is minimally invasive and the recovery process is brief. Recovery takes only 1 to 7 days on average depending on the size of the area that was targeted. If other procedures like liposuction are used in tandem with the Miracle Skin Tightening® system, the recovery period may last longer, but as a general rule, recovery from the Miracle Skin Tightening® system is fast in comparison with other surgical treatment methods like the tummy tuck (which is also used to tighten sagging skin). The Miracle Skin Tightening® method is minimally invasive which means that it causes significantly less trauma to underlying tissues. As a result, patients can expect a shorter recovery period from a Miracle Skin Tightening® procedure than what they would experience undergoing other, more invasive procedures.
Though the recovery period is short, patients who undergo the Miracle Skin Tightening® method should expect to wear a compression garment for at least one to two weeks. The compression garment provides essential support for the recovering tissues during the healing process. During the first week of recovery, patients wear the garment for 24 hours a day. For the second week, patients can wear it for less than 24 hours a day.
