What Causes Loose Skin?
When you are young, your skin is firm and elastic and has the ability to stretch and go back into place. By age 25, collagen production begins to slow down in the body. Over time this leads to loose skin. If you have ever worked out and gained muscle or had an instance where you gained weight, you know when you lose muscle tone, or weight, loose skin can become a problem.
Pregnancy can also cause loose skin in the stomach area due to the skin being stretched. Often it doesn’t go back to being the tight firm stomach you once had. Other reasons for loose skin can be too much exposure to the sun, environmental pollutants, alcohol abuse. and a poor diet.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing can be used on any part of the body and is a non-invasive treatment that can provide dramatic results and younger looking skin with little downtime. It can be used to help with the following:
- Smooths fine line and wrinkles.

The Fotona 4D laser is the most innovative laser at this time. It has 2 lasers and 4 different steps – SMOOTH®, FRAC3®, PIANO®, and SupErficial™. Each step provides a different benefit to your skin. The SMOOTH® setting addresses lines and loss of elasticity.The FRAC3® helps treat pigmentation, such as sun and age spots, and also addresses deep lines.
The PIANO® step helps restore volume due to loss of collagen, which causes skin to sag and become dull. Dr. Tantawi will use a heat brushing technique that tightens and provides lifting to the skin, and increases volume. The result is more youthful looking skin. The last step is the SupErficial™ which gently resurfaces the top layer of your skin. This helps to get rid of surface damaged cells and reveals the newer, dermal cells underneath. Your skin will look firmer, and more refreshed and renewed.
Radiofrequency Skin Tightening (RF)
RF is an advanced FDA approved technological treatment for tightening your skin. It is painless and gives great results. The procedure takes from 30 to 90 minutes depending upon how much area is treated. RF works by using a wand that is passed over the areas of your body being treated. The wand emits radio waves that give off heat. The heat stimulates your body to produce collagen and elastin and speeds up cell turnover, so that your skin gets thicker and firmer over a period of time. RF also works on getting rid of cellulite.
