What We Offer
What is skin tightening?
Skin tightening refers to a nonsurgical aesthetic treatment that helps improve the appearance of your skin. As you get older, your body produces less collagen, which is a protein that gives your skin its strength and elasticity, and the fat under your skin begins to fade. This lack of support causes your skin to fall, creating a creepy look that leads to the development of lines and wrinkles.
To help you look and feel your best, Dr. Galope offers a number of different treatments to help tighten your skin.

*Individual results may vary
What is Profound?
Profound is an aesthetic tool that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and rejuvenate your skin. The energy has the ability to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to improve to improve skin tone and refresh your look.
Dr. Galope uses Profound to improve lines and wrinkles on your face, as well as unsightly cellulite. The best part is that you only need one treatment to get results.
What are the Risks involved in Profound?
Dr. Michael Persky on realself.com states: “Profound is an excellent skin lifting and tightening non-surgical treatment that is both safe and effective. Fortunately, the risks, complications, and adverse events associated with Profound RF are rare. The most common side effects to be expected with the treatment are swelling and bruising. The next most common occurrence is small raised bumps on the skin that called dermal papules. Dermal papules usually disappear on their own within a few days, though they may persist for a few weeks. I have personally not seen the extremely rare complications of burns or permanent scarring.
As with any aesthetic procedure, you must choose your treating cosmetic physician carefully based on their experience, skill, knowledge, and most importantly their natural artistic vision.
What is BTL Exilis Ultra?
BTL Exilis Ultra is a laser skin tightening tool that combines radiofrequency with ultrasound technology to tighten your skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
The BTL Exilis Ultra is gentle and can be used on a number of different body parts, including:
- Around your eyes
- Neck and chest
- Under your chin
To get the best results, you may need as many as four treatments set at one- to two-week intervals. Dr. Galope will develop a treatment plan before you get started, so you know what to expect.
Are there side effects involved with BTL Exilis Ultra?
“The Exilis Ultra is BTL’s newest and best device for skin tightening and fat burning. It is a unique treatment that combines radiofrequency and ultrasound technology. It is an extremely safe, risk free procedure that typically yields great results. During treatment, your skin may feel hot and become a little red, but it is harmless” says Kevin Haney, MD on realself.com.
What is NeoGen PSR?
The NeoGen PSR uses nitrogen energy technology to create a plasma gas that heats both the surface and the deep layers of your skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
NeoGen PSR is gentle enough to use on your eyelids and around your eyes to treat droopy lids and crow’s feet and give you an enhanced look.
Dr. Galope will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your aesthetic goals, but you may only need one treatment with NeoGen PSR to get the look you want. Results of treatment can last a year or longer.
Is NeoGen PSR Safe?
Semanticscholar.org issued the following statement in 2007 regarding NeoGen PSR following a clinical study: “Plasma skin regeneration delivers energy to the skin through plasma pulses induced by passing radiofrequency into nitrogen gas. Single-treatment, high-energy, 1-pass treatments have been demonstrated to achieve good results with an excellent safety profile.”
And, an article in 2018 in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology stated in conclusion to another study: “Nitrogen plasma skin regeneration is effective and safe for the treatment of mild‐to‐moderate periorbital wrinkles and darkening.”

After the first 6 treatments which are normally given once every 4-6 weeks, results tend to last up to 12 weeks before maintenance is required.
While it really depends on individual needs and goals, there are a few methods and technologies that doctors generally say are the best and most effective. These include: radiofrequency, ultrasound skin tightening, and microneedling with other technologies. There’s also Botox and fillers that are effective. The bottom line is, with so much non-invasive or non-surgical technologies for skin tightening out there, no one needs facelifts anymore.
While results will always vary with individuals, doctors have been reporting that results from Profound have lasted as long as 3 years.
Doctors report that you can expect results from Exilis Ultra to last approximately 2 years if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise.
