If you lose weight quickly-or lose a significant amount-skin can lose elasticity, which results in that crepey, loose appearance. If you’re disappointed with the creams, lotions and gels you’ve tried, dermatologists and plastic surgeons have options that can help you tighten up.
Energy-based skin-tightening treatments such as Thermage, Titan and ReFirme have entered the mainstream, and while doctors are skeptical, there are patients who do see results. These treatments go to work on collagen deep within the skin to improve tone through the introduction of light, heat or radiofrequency energy.
There is no downtime, but you may need a sedative before treatment to control your comfort. Treatments are performed in a series, and results appear gradually.
Not everyone responds optimally, and there’s no way to predict who will get results that meet their expectations. Those who aren’t satisfied with energy-based treatments may want to pursue a bodylift for a definitive change.
