Undeniably, losing weight has great benefits: Your overall health is improved, your clothes fit better and your confidence increases. But, when you lose weight, you may gain something else: loose skin. And loose skin can mean increased feelings of self-consciousness and more worries about how your clothes are going to fit. One solution for excess skin is surgery, but what happens when you don’t have a lot of excess skin to remove but still want to tighten up? You turn to BodyTite skin-tightening offered by Dr. Jack Peterson, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon in Topeka.
Why Does Loose Skin Develop After Losing Weight?
When you gain weight, your skin stretches because the fat layer under it increases. When you lose weight, this fat layer shrinks and leaves the skin sagging and loose. But, it doesn’t happen to everyone. If you have lost weight quickly, you’ll have more loose skin than if you lose more gradually over time and if you work out to boost your muscle and help fill out your skin. Other factors, including age and family history, also affect how your skin responds.
What Is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a minimally invasive radiofrequency skin-tightening treatment that can help tighten loose skin after weight loss or anytime! BodyTite works by using radiofrequency energy to spur the body to increase collagen production, which, in turn, tightens skin.
BodyTite is an excellent treatment for tightening sagging skin in individuals with cases of mild to moderate skin sagging. In most cases, results are seen in just one treatment.
BodyTite can be used to treat many body areas, including the thighs, upper arms and midsection. The treatment can also reduce sagging skin in the face through FaceTite, the facial feature of the BodyTite machine.
