Skin Tightening: Who Is a Candidate?
If you have lost a lot of weight recently, or if you have just had a baby, you may be experiencing saggy skin and you may not be feeling very great about yourself. Skin tightening treatments are a really great way to help your skin tighten back up to its previous state from before giving birth, or to its new state after experiencing weight loss.
Skin Tightening is a procedure in which the skin is maneuvered by targeted energy levels to make the body begin to produce collagen and elastin, which helps the body begin to tighten up the skin itself. There are non-surgical and surgical choices when it comes to this procedure and both are cleared by the FDA. There are very low amounts of risks with non-surgical skin tightening. They may also need more treatments, however, you would still not being going in for a major surgery.
Someone who is within 10 to 15 pounds away from their ideal weight would be a great candidate for skin tightening. Anyone who is middle aged and has slight facial wrinkles would be a great candidate for the procedure as well, since the procedure helps to rebuild collagen. This is what we usually lose from our skin as well age, so the procedure will sort of help put it back.
Anyone with smaller pockets of fat deposits are really good candidates for skin tightening. Little places of fat can be taken care of it a breeze with this treatment and procedure. For example, if you have just had a baby and you still have the “mommy pooch” of fat in the front and you cannot get your skin to tighten up in that area no matter how much you work out, then I would give skin tightening a try. Areas all over your body can be treated with skin tightening.
