How to Tighten Loose Skin

As we age, collagen and elastin begin to decrease. These proteins provide structure, elasticity, and support to the skin, so as their levels decline, the skin can become loose and start to sag. However, younger patients also seek skin tightening after weight changes or too much sun exposure. For those seeking to tighten loose skin, Manhattan Aesthetics offers four different ways to restore firmness and support

How is Loose Skin Tightened?

Loose skin can become tighter in several ways. First, removing stubborn fat can cause the skin to become tighter as it adjusts to your new slimmer contours. Loose skin can also become tighter when collagen and elastin production is restored. We will help you determine what type of treatment will work best to restore your skin’s tightness. 

How to Tighten Loose Skin

These treatments all work to tighten loose skin, but some will work better for you than others. We offer skin tightening with:

ThermiSmooth® Face

Using radiofrequency (RF) energy, ThermiSmooth® Face triggers the skin’s natural repair processes. This causes cells to produce new collagen and elastin, producing tighter skin in areas such as the neck, forehead, around the eyes and mouth, and even on the eyelids. 

ThermiSmooth® Body

ThermiSmooth® Body also uses its targeted radiofrequency energy to signal collagen and elastin production. It works almost anywhere on the body where you have loose or sagging skin, including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, buttocks, back, and arms. 

TruSculpt® 3D

TruSculpt® 3D can benefit people who may not make good candidates for other treatments, including people with a BMI greater than 30. Its radiofrequency energy targets stubborn areas of fat in people who might be excluded from different types of treatments. 

TruSculpt® ID

TruSculpt® ID triggers collagen and elastin production and removes fat with its targeted radiofrequency energy. This treatment works on people of any body weight and shape, allowing us to offer skin tightening to more people. 

What Results Will I See With Loose Skin Tightening?

You may see some tightening immediately after treatment, but most results will develop over the course of several weeks to months. If the treatment has produced damaged fat cells, the body will filter these away. At the same time, the skin produces more of its own collagen, restoring the skin’s natural elasticity and firmness.

Is There Any Downtime With Tightening Loose Skin? 

These treatments involve no downtime, and you can resume normal activities after any of them. You may experience some minor redness or sensitivity for a few hours to a day. Radiofrequency energy allows these treatments to target fat and promote collagen production without harming or irritating the skin. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Tightening Loose Skin?

Almost anyone makes a good candidate for loose skin tightening. During your consultation, you should mention any health problems you have or medications you take.
