Challenging yourself and achieving your weight loss goals can be the best feeling. Clearing your wardrobe of loose-fitting clothes and feeling fitter and leaner can give you a new perspective. But what if you’re left with sagging skin or stretch marks?
If an elastic band is over-stretched repeatedly or for a long period of time, it loses its elasticity. Our skin acts in the same way – if our weight yo-yo’s up and down, or following pregnancy, we can be left with sagging, wrinkly or loose skin. The muscle and tissue can be firm underneath, but the skin has lost its elasticity, so what can you do?
How To Tighten Skin After Weight Loss or Pregnancy
One of the leading issues that people have after weight loss or pregnancy is loose or wrinkly skin. A woman’s body is incredible at recovering following pregnancy, however sometimes the skin is stretched past its “elasticity point” where it fails to shrink back to the postpartum figure.
Following weight loss, people typically suffer from sagging skin around the abdomen, under the arms and buttocks/thigh areas. There is a treatment that has been clinically proven to tighten skin by triggering the production of new collagen and elastin – the ‘scaffolding’ of our skin.
VelaShape III is a body contouring and skin tightening device that combines radio frequency, infrared light, suction and massage that deep heats the fat cells and the surrounding connective tissue, including the dermal collagen fibers. The treatment stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin, resulting in tighter skin and an overall improvement in skin texture and structure.

How To Banish Stretch Marks After Weight Loss or Pregnancy
Stretch marks commonly occur during pregnancy or other periods of rapid weight gain and are caused by the skin over-stretching, which creates a tear under the skins surface. Sublative™ technology uses radio frequency energy that penetrates deep into the dermis where it is needed to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, stimulating your body to repair the scars from the inside out. Both new and old scars can be treated with this technology, however newer scars will respond better to the treatment.
Following treatment, your skin will be slightly red and will have tiny pinhole marks however the redness resolves within 24 hours and the marks fade over 2-4 weeks. There is no recovery period or downtime with Sublative™ treatment, it’s a straight forward, walk in, walk out treatment.
