When you lose a significant amount of weight, the appearance of sagging skin in its path can be disheartening. If you’re bothered by lax skin, you may want to consider nonsurgical skin tightening. Without the need for incisions or lengthy healing time, minimally invasive skin-tightening techniques can help you do away with skin laxity while toning targeted areas of your body so you can feel more confident about your updated physique.
At Delta Medical Weight Management Center in Southaven, Mississippi, Dr. Ulric Duncan and his team are pleased to offer Morpheus8® radiofrequency technology for tighter skin and a better contoured figure. Read on to learn more about this option and its benefits.
When to consider skin tightening
If you’re troubled by sagging skin due to weight loss, reduced laxity from aging, or a combination of both, nonsurgical skin tightening may be just what the doctor ordered. You may be a great candidate for our skin-tightening services if you’re eager for these benefits:
- Mild to moderately loose skin can be tightened without leaving surgical scars.
- You’ll see a noticeable “lifting” effect” on your skin.
- The long-lasting results look very natural.
- You won’t need any downtime for recovery.
- You won’t experience any of the risks associated with surgery.
You’ll also want to make sure that you’ve reached an ideal weight range and feel confident about maintaining your weight loss. Your provider at Delta Medical Weight Management Center can help determine whether you’re a good candidate for skin tightening now or could be in the future.
How Morpheus8 can tone your body
Morpheus8 combines two minimally invasive techniques, microneedling and radiofrequency, to contour your body and your face. Our expert staff inserts tiny needles into targeted areas of your skin to create micro-wounds that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, both of which play an important role in smooth, supple, and toned skin. The radiofrequency delves a bit deeper into your skin to help collagen remodel beneath the surface, enhancing these benefits.
After your treatment, you can expect visibly tighter, more toned skin within a few days, with full benefits unfolding within 12 weeks. Areas of your body we can target include:
After your Morpheus8 skin-tightening treatment, make the most of your results by using a quality moisturizer consistently and protecting your skin from UV rays. You’ll need to avoid direct contact with the sun immediately afterward. Wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen whenever your skin is exposed outdoors thereafter can help preserve a youthful, healthy look.
