Thermage Therapy to Tighten Abdominal Skin
Sometimes, people work hard to lose weight by eating right and working out only to find that their abdominal skin is not as tight as they would like. This leads to the look of a less-than-perfect midsection, despite all their efforts to adhere to healthy lifestyle habits. If this sounds familiar, consider trying Thermage skin tightening treatment with Dr. Sheena Kong, which can help you further improve the look of your waistline and achieve the tighter, more toned appearance you deserve.
Why Is Thermage Needed?
Over time, the body gradually stops producing elastin and collagen, two proteins that are important in maintaining healthy, elastic skin. Without a sufficient supply of these proteins, the skin loses its elasticity and starts to sag. Significant weight fluctuations, pregnancy, some lifestyle habits (e.g., smoking, sun exposure) or hereditary traits can compound the problem, so that even when certain people lose excess weight, they are left with sagging skin throughout the abdomen or other areas of the body. Thankfully, undergoing Thermage skin tightening treatment can help.
How Does Thermage Work?
During Thermage treatment, radiofrequency (RF) energy penetrates into the underlying tissue layers beneath the skin’s surface. The RF energy causes the targeted collagen fibers to contract, providing a tightening and lifting effect throughout the skin in the treatment area. The RF energy also stimulates the body’s latent collagen and elastin production, so the aesthetic benefits of treatment continue to improve for several weeks as more collagen and elastin are regenerated.
Thermage treatment can be performed on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, neck, chin, face and eyelids.
Additional Advantages of Thermage Treatment
Thermage treatment does not require the use of anesthesia, so there is no chance of suffering from related complications. It is a quick, noninvasive procedure that does not require any downtime, so patients can return to work or their usual routine immediately after treatment.
