Loose Skin: Its Causes and Treatment
There are a few causes for loose skin; for example, it may be the result of rapid loss of weight after drastic dieting, illness, or pregnancy. Another instance: some people find that the skin around their bellies, thighs, and arms grows loose after they’ve had gastric by-pass surgery, which causes them to lose weight very quickly. The weight loss is so fast that the skin doesn’t get enough time to adjust. Skin can also lose its elasticity due to the aging process.
When seeking abdominal skin tightening, opt for the best and come to us. Though there is no lack of surgical cosmetic treatments for loose skin, the risk of complications must be considered. There is also the matter of noticeable scarring following the healing process. To bring down these concerns, Cosmetic Rejuvenation Medical Center sought to provide a non-invasive skin tightening treatment.
Non-surgical treatments for loose skin are also available, and include a procedure called Skin Tyte, offered by Cosmetic Rejuvenation Medical Center. In this procedure, pulses of infrared light heat and coagulate the collagen beneath the skin while cooling and protecting the surface of the skin to reduce injury and pain. The infrared pulses stimulate the body’s healing mechanism, which tightens the skin. The procedure can be done without anesthesia and can take as little as a half an hour. Some patients see results after just one treatment, but some need a treatment a month for about two to five months. We offer you great options for skin tightening in Los Angeles; our offices are conveniently located in West Hollywood.
Side effects of Skin Tyte may include swelling, redness and some discomfort. The treatment is contraindicated for people with blisters or sores on the treatment area, as well as people who suffer from autoimmune disease and pregnant women.
