Swimsuit season is right around the corner, and while you may be at a healthy weight, you can tighten and tone your body with a skin tightening procedure to create a streamlined appearance. Laser skin tightening treatments, including Thermage and Titan, work at a deep level to shape and tone the tissues and create a contoured appearance.
Most treatments last about an hour, and work by improving the texture and tone of the skin, while strengthening the tissues so that the skin appears more resilient. If you’re getting ready to sport a bathing suit this season, schedule a series of skin tightening treatments that will shape and tone your body. Consider any of these top skin tightening procedures just in time for swimsuit season:
Thermage Skin Tightening Procedures
If you’re worried about stretch marks and loose skin, you may be a good candidate for the Thermage skin tightening treatment. Thermage uses capacitive radiofrequency technology to smooth, tighten and tone the skin, and the device is administered directly on top of the skin. Most treatments take between 20 minutes to two hours depending on the area, and results can be seen immediately. Results continue for several weeks and months after the treatment, as the body continues to produce more collagen and the tissues begin to heal.
Titan Skin Tightening Procedures
The Titan skin tightening laser works in a similar way as Thermage treatments, and is a non-surgical procedure that uses infrared light to cause a contraction in the dermis. As the dermis contracts, the tissue becomes smoother and more toned. Titan also stimulates collagen production, leaving the skin looking more youthful, toned and smoother. It can be administered on the abdomen, chest, upper arms and thighs, and there is no downtime involved.
Polaris Skin Tightening Procedures
The Polaris WR system is an FDA-approved laser treatment that tightens and tons the skin by delivering deep dermal heat energy. The procedure uses radio frequency energy and a diode laser to reach deep into the dermis to cause a contraction. As the body produces more collagen, the skin appears more resilient and toned. This skin tightening procedure is suitable for those with excessive stretch marks, and for those that have recently lost weight and need to tighten and tone loose skin.
Refirme Skin Tightening Treatments
If you have loose or sagging skin around the face and neck area, you may be a good candidate for the Refirme skin tightening treatment. Refirme procedures use pulsed light technology to tighten and tone the skin, and also reduce the appearance of wrinkles. These treatments can be administered on any part of the body, but are particularly effective for treating loose skin around the facial area.
Aluma Skin Tightening Procedures
If you need an all-over body contouring and body reshaping procedure, the Aluma skin renewal and skin tightening procedure may be your best match. Aluma utilizes a vacuum-assisted and bipolar radiofrequency device to reshape and tone the skin by delivering intense heat deep into the dermis. This helps to firm and tighten the skin by causing a collagen contraction, and is a completely painless procedure.
