Losing weight can be such a satisfying journey, but if you are left with a lot of excess skin, it might feel like it has all been for nothing. Often people who lose a lot of weight, especially when they do so quickly, have excess skin under the arms, on the stomach, and their legs. This can be extremely frustrating, as it can cause serious discomfort, can hinder exercise and prevent you from fitting into all types of clothes. It can also leave you to feel less confident without clothes on, but how much is there you can do?
On many weight loss shows they show contestants go to a surgeon to discuss skin tightening, and this can be a great option if you have the money and time to do so. Surgery is by far the most successful method of eliminating all excess skin. However, it may leave you with scarring, and as with all surgery risks can be significant. There is likely also a need to recover for some time, during which you can’t work or exercise, which may set you back on part of your weight loss journey.
Milder options for treating excess skin have been on the market for some time now, but are not often known about. Such a treatment is radiofrequency skin tightening. This treatment is pain-free and can be very relaxing, and more importantly, requires no down-time following the appointment. It helps significantly with excess skin, as well as uneven skin, and it can work wonders as a cellulite treatment. With radiofrequency skin tightening you will find that skin elasticity improves and excess skin visible reduces with each appointment. Results are not as extreme as with surgery, but at a much lower cost, and lower impact on time, this might be a good alternative to many.
