Get Tighter Skin in Time for Summer

Posted on April 7, 2017 by: Dr. Rocheford

If you lead a busy lifestyle you probably don’t have a lot of time to spend in recovery from invasive procedures like a Tummy Tuck. Luckily, that doesn’t have to mean that you can’t get the summer body you’ve always wanted. With warmer weather approaching, tighter skin can give us the freedom to break out the summer wardrobe with confidence. Laser skin tightening can help you to achieve the look you desire.

What Areas Can be Treated?

  • Jowls – As we age, our skin will lose volume along with the elasticity that keeps it lifted. As a result, “jowls” can form and make a patient look older or heavier than they are.
  • Abdomen – After weight gain, loss, or childbearing, loose skin can occur in the abdomen area making clothing less comfortable. Having excess skin can occur on people even though they are at a healthy weight.
  • Arms – This is one of the toughest areas to keep covered in the spring and summer, but by tightening the underside of the arm, you can confidently wear sleeveless tops.
  • Thighs – Loose skin on the outer and inner thighs can be an insecurity when it comes to bathing suit season. Tightening these areas can give a very sculpted look to the body.

How Does the Device Work?

The Forma™ handpiece slowly heats the collagen in the skin to a point where it then “unwinds” the existing collagen and promotes the growth of new collagen. This gives patients tighter skin over the course of 6-8 treatments. During treatments, there is a warming sensation but this is not uncomfortable or painful for the patient.

Post Treatment & Down Time

Since the tissue is only warmed, there is no downtime necessary for this treatment. This aspect of the treatment is just one reason it is a great full body treatment for busy patients to start in the spring time. The recommended amount of treatments is anywhere from six to eight about one week apart from each other.
