After pregnancy and childbirth, chances are you’ll have loose skin in the stomach area. Even though you may have taken care of your belly skin before and during pregnancy by moisturizing religiously and massaging it to keep it supple, looseness to some extent is bound to happen. After all, your stomach skin was stretched rather quickly over just a matter of months, and it can only assume its previous shape so much. The skin can’t bounce back so quickly, which is why it’s left looser. Looseness can be minor to extreme, but in either case, it is generally unwelcome and can cause embarrassment. You may not be able to wear your favourite clothes and avoid going to the beach.
One solution to tightening the skin in the area is to apply topical creams, massaging them in gently to help improve moisture levels and boost circulation to the area. This can help. However this solution is slow to take effect and may only improve the area minimally.
The most effective solution to treat loose skin without having to undergo surgery is laser skin tightening. Laser skin tightening uses the power of lasers to facilitate collagen production and kickstart the skin in producing healthier, fresher skin. There are a number of technologies used for the procedure, but the most effective is elos™.
elos™ technology combines bi-polar radio frequency (RF) and optical energy to achieve benefits that cannot be achieved through conventional lasers and intense pulse light (IPL) platforms. Suitable for all skin types, elos™ can precisely target desired areas without any additional risk to the epidermis. In addition, contact cooling increases the comfort and safety during treatment for the patient, reducing the risks and side effects of the procedure. Results appear after a series of sessions.
Laser skin tightening is a safe and effective way to tighten loose skin following childbirth. As a matter of fact, it is one of the most common procedures performed on women who are unhappy with their post-pregnancy bodies.
