The Benefits of Nonsurgical Body Contouring After Weight Loss
Losing weight can be a life-changing accomplishment in more ways than one — from improving your health to enhancing your experience and boosting your self-esteem. Oftentimes, however, people are left with an unwanted side effect of losing weight: loose skin. This is especially true with age, as older skin typically isn’t able to “snap back” the way it did when a person was younger. For patients with a mild degree of skin laxity or sagginess after weight loss, nonsurgical body contouring may be a suitable option for firming up loose skin, smoothing out wrinkles, and restoring a smoother contour without the need for surgery. At Dermatology Center of Dallas, our experienced team of aesthetic providers performs nonsurgical body contouring using the technologically advanced RF Thermage® treatment system, which helps to boost collagen and elastin beneath the skin’s surface for stunning improvements with minimal downtime. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of RF Thermage nonsurgical body contouring in Dallas, TX.
How does RF body contouring tighten loose skin?
Thermage nonsurgical body contouring works to firm and tighten mild to moderate skin laxity by using radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the tissues. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin — two of the most important components of firm, youthful skin — beneath the skin’s surface. Over time, as the supplies of collagen and elastin accumulate, patients should notice their wrinkles appearing smoother and their skin becoming firmer, more lifted, and more contoured.
Can I get Thermage treatment after weight loss?
Many patients who find that their skin appears droopy, saggy, or wrinkled after losing weight begin looking into options for post-weight loss skin tightening. While skin removal surgery and surgical skin tightening are available, many men and women do not feel ready, willing, or able to undergo invasive cosmetic surgery. For patients seeking a convenient, long-lasting, nonsurgical solution for skin tightening, Thermage RF body contouring in Dallas is a popular choice. It is important to understand, however, that nonsurgical body contouring with Thermage is designed to address early, mild, or moderate skin laxity and looseness after weight loss. Patients who have a significant amount of loose, hanging skin and/or a more advanced degree of skin laxity may not achieve their desired outcome with RF body contouring.
