Tighten and Smooth Loose Abdominal Skin with Thermage®

Featured Image

Loose skin and wrinkles can develop almost anywhere on the face and body, and are commonly associated with aging, though other life events — like weight loss or having children —can also contribute to the progression of skin laxity. In either case, having wrinkled skin can, understandably, be frustrating, as most topical products do little to help. On the other hand, cosmetic surgery may be useful for addressing loose skin, but many patients aren't interested in the consequences and inconveniences of plastic surgery, such as visible scarring and an extended period of recovery.

At Dermatology Center of Dallas, our experienced team understands the desire to smooth out wrinkles and slim down contours effectively and conveniently. With this in mind, we are proud to offer nonsurgical radiofrequency (RF) body contouring in Dallas, TX with the revolutionary Thermage system. Explore the benefits of Thermage for loose stomach skin, specifically, and learn what to expect with this exciting treatment — including how soon you may start enjoying a firmer, smoother, sexier new figure.

What causes wrinkles on my stomach?

You may have noticed wrinkles gradually appearing on your stomach after losing weight, or it may seem like your stomach started to sag almost overnight. In many cases, skin laxity in the abdomen is indeed associated with a specific life event, like weight loss or childbirth. However, the natural aging process — which includes a decline in collagen and elastin — can play a major role in the development of stomach wrinkles, just as it contributes to lines and wrinkles on the face and elsewhere on the body. Once we reach a certain age, which can vary from person to person, the skin's natural elasticity diminishes to the point where it no longer "snaps back" to its slimmer, smoother contours, even with diet and exercise. Fortunately, nonsurgical body contouring can help tighten and smooth the skin once again.

How does Thermage work on the stomach?

Thermage nonsurgical body contouring involves the delivery of targeted RF energy to the skin's surface, which penetrates to deeper layers to boost collagen and elastin production. This helps to tighten, smooth, and even slim contours for a more desirable new look. When performed on the abdomen or midsection, RF body contouring with Thermage can significantly improve the appearance of stomach wrinkles while reducing loose skin and trimming the contours over time.

How soon does Thermage start working?

Because Thermage works to tighten and smooth the skin by boosting the body's production of collagen and elastin, it can take some time for the results of your treatment to become apparent. On average, patients can expect to notice a continued improvement in their skin laxity over the course of about 2 – 6 months after RF body contouring, with the optimal effects often lasting up to a few years.

Where else can Thermage be used?

The stomach is certainly a popular treatment area for nonsurgical RF body contouring, but it is definitely not the only one. Among the most popular Thermage treatment areas are:

  • Abdomen
  • Neck
  • Face
  • Upper arms
  • Outer thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Back

If you are concerned about skin laxity in multiple places on the face and body, don't hesitate to ask about the possibility of having more than one area treated with Thermage.
