It can be really frustrating to have worked hard at losing weight only to have loose skin hanging around afterwards. Not only is it a reminder of the weight you lost, it can also contribute to feeling like you look older than you are.
Our team Phases Skin Care and Laser Center offers multiple solutions for skin tightening in Carmel and Indianapolis. You deserve to feel confident and at home in your body, and we’re here to help!
Why isn’t your skin tightening after weight loss?
There are multiple factors that contribute to skin laxity and it’s something everyone faces at some point because of the aging process. As you get older, your body produces less of the proteins that help maintain your skin’s structure.
Weight gain and pregnancy cause the skin to expand, which can damage the skin’s collagen and elastin fibers. So even after the baby is born or the weight is lost, the skin can’t quite snap back to its original shape.
While skin tightening options after weight loss may not provide the results expected as with a tummy tuck, these options are great for those who want a non-surgical procedure.
Your options for skin tightening after weight loss:
Sitting down for an in-depth consultation with a trained provider is the best way to figure out the ideal skin tightening option for you. There are both non-surgical and surgical options. These are 3 of our most popular options:
Ultherapy, or Ulthera, is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure for the chin, neck, and decolletage. It uses ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen production in the deepest layers of your skin, restoring your skin’s youthful vigor.
Radio-frequency microneedling can be used to tighten the skin almost anywhere on the body, especially areas like the legs and buttocks that are prone to stretch marks. RF microneedling is most popular for the face and neck areas, but can also be used for skin tightening after weight loss.
For patients who are experiencing extreme skin laxity around their abdomen, a tummy tuck surgery might be the best option. Our partners at Turkle MD and Associates are tummy tuck experts and can help you get back to feeling like yourself again!
