Abdominal Skin Tightening: San Francisco’s Dr. Sheena Kong Describes The “Tummy Tone-Up”
Dr. Sheena Kong says her Thermage radio frequency treatment can tighten loose skin on the abdomen for a smoother, slimmer look. “I call it the ‘Tummy Tone-Up.’ It’s the perfect way to tighten up without surgery,” she says.
“Loose skin on the abdomen can be a real problem for women,” says Dr. Kong. “Even with the proper diet and exercise, sagging skin can make anyone self-conscious.” Some women may notice loose skin after significant weight loss, because once the skin is overstretched, it often loses its elasticity.
Dr. Kong says women who develop loose skin after childbirth can also benefit from the “Tummy Tone-Up”. Even in women who did not put on much fat during their pregnancy, stretching of the abdominal skin can also compromise the skin’s elasticity. After the pregnancy, when the rest of the body has gone back to normal abdominal skin can be left loose and show wrinkles easily.
During a treatment, radio frequency waves heat the deep layers of the skin in a targeted area. Dr. Kong uses the Thermage CPT device, which has the latest ‘Comfort Pulse Technology’ to prevent any discomfort. By heating the deep layers of the skin the body’s existing collagen is stimulated, promoting new collagen growth.
Dr. Kong says that she is impressed by her patient’s results with the Tummy Tone-Up. “Wrinkles on the abdomen go away quickly, and we can see results immediately after the treatment,” she says. “Since no surgery is needed and there is no downtime, this can be the perfect treatment to help many women gain a tighter tummy for summer and beyond.”
