Treatments for Skin Tightening

Many people have loose skin after losing a substantial amount of weight. It doesn’t cause health issues, but it can be annoying. Loose skin can hurt a person’s body image and can even damage their self-esteem. Sometimes wobbly skin can cause physical discomfort.

While loose skin may be a reminder of how far you’ve come on your weight loss journey, it’s probably safe to say no one really wants to have loose skin.

Thankfully, that’s why there are many different treatments for skin tightening.

Body Tightening

VelaShape® III

VelaShape III is an FDA-approved system to treat cellulite and for skin tightening. It will temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite and the circumference of treated thighs and abdomens. People also enjoy improved skin texture and tone.

  • Arms
  • Flank
  • Abdomen
  • Buttock
  • Thigh

Most clients will achieve their desired results in 3 short treatment sessions, with each session typically lasting between 15 and 30 minutes. And there’s no downtime afterwards.

CoolSculpting is a popular non-surgical procedure. It’s used for body sculpting and contouring and the removal of stubborn fat.

CoolSculpting eliminates unwanted fat by freezing it. The CoolSculpting system uses sensors to detect the patient’s skin temperature—it will automatically shut down if the skin becomes too cold.

CoolSculpting targets and destroys fat cells. Then in the following weeks, the body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells.

The CoolSculpting results are permanent. As a person loses weight, fat cells get smaller, but they never go away. CoolSculpting actually destroys the treated fat cells, so they won’t return.

  • Belly fat/Muffin tops
  • Flanks
  • Inner and outer thighs

Laser Treatments

Laser and light treatments are used to tighten, rejuvenate, and resurface the skin, leaving the skin with a fresher and more youthful appearance.

Laser treatments can also be used to reduce unwanted hair.

Resurfacing and skin rejuvenation laser treatments will improve the appearance of the skin by:

  • Reduction of wrinkles
  • Tightening skin and improving elasticity
  • Smoothing skin texture
  • Evening out skin tone
  • Reducing pore size

Skin rejuvenation can also treat various types of skin damage resulting from aging and sun exposure, including:

  • Discoloration
  • Age spots and freckles
  • Symptoms of rosacea
  • Broken capillaries

A physician specially trained in administering the specific laser treatment should always perform the procedure.

Vibrance Lyft Treatment

If you have sagging skin on your neck, jawline, and cheeks, you will surely benefit from Vibrance Lyft treatment. This treatment will gently lift and reposition your skin to provide a more youthful look—the look you enjoyed before gravity took its toll.

The skin on your face will appear lifted and tightened and you will feel and look great!

During the procedure, the doctor injects PDO thread—a material safely used in cardiothoracic surgery—into the targeted areas in the face. The skin heals around the thread and stimulates collagen production.

The result is:

  • Tighter, lifted skin
  • Increased collagen production
  • Improved elasticity
  • Improved texture
  • Reduced fine lines

 This procedure is safe and causes minimal to no pain.


Vibradermabrasion will rejuvenate your skin. The treatment effectively removes dead skin cells and reveals underlying, healthy skin. With continued treatment, it can even promote collagen growth.

After treatment, your skin feels fresh and supple, and simply glows!

Vibradermabrasion restores aging and sun damaged skin.

It also:

  • Refines pores
  • Reduces acne scarring
  • Reduces pigmentation issues

Vibradermabrasion, when performed first, enhances the effects of subsequent laser treatments.

Botox® Cosmetic Treatments

Let’s talk about wrinkles! If you’re unhappy with the wrinkles you see in the mirror, Botox may be ideal for you.

Botox injections use a toxin that keeps muscles from moving. The skin over the muscles smooths and relaxes—wrinkles seem to lessen or disappear.

Botox is effective for treating:

  • Crow’s feet and other wrinkles around the eyes
  • “Elevens” between the eyes
  • Laugh lines
  • Corners of the mouth
  • Forehead creases
  • Other fine lines

Results last from 3 to 4 months. A board-certified physician should administer Botox.

At-Home Ways to Tighten Skin

There are things you can do at home to help tighten loose skin. They include:

  • Using facial masks
  • Doing facial exercises
  • Use skin firming creams
  • Eating a healthy diet
  • Spot exercising

Yet, even if you exercise consistently and eat a healthy diet, you’ll likely find areas on your body that don’t respond. This can frustrate, but it’s not your fault—it’s simply your body telling you to take a more direct approach.
