One of the top treated areas for cosmetic procedures is the abdomen. Having the perfect “tummy” is always a dream for those who wish to perfect the way they look. Fortunately, advancements in skin tightening procedures have made common treatments like tummy tightening more available and able produce better results with minimally invasive methods. Here is what you need to know about minimally invasive tummy tightening.
Minimally invasive tummy tightening can be done with a variety of treatments: ultrasound skin tightening, radiofrequency treatments, and intense pulsed light combined with radiofrequency. Ultrasound can best target early signs of aging with results seen in 2-3 months. Radiofrequency treatments are our preferred method for achieving skin tightening results with little side effects. Only a small incision is made while using local anesthesia so you will not feel any discomfort. Finally, intense pulsed light combined with radiofrequency is similar to other radiofrequency treatments but is more suitable for lighter skin tones.
There are several incredible benefits to the minimally invasive tummy treatments currently available. First, these procedures help you tighten mild to moderately loose skin without any surgery or leftover scarring. Even without surgery these treatments still provide noticeable results and have little recovery time. The procedures can typically be done in less than an hour and are done from our office. There are very little adverse effects when choosing a qualified physician like Dr. Wright and his team.
With any cosmetic procedure, there can be limitations when compared to other treatment options. Minimally invasive St Louis tummy tightening treatments show gradual results that may take months or multiple treatments to achieve the desired results. Also, multiple treatments will be needed over time to maintain the quality of results. Since minimally invasive tummy tightening treatments target moderately loose skin, it is not as effective treating significant sagging skin.
Minimally invasive tummy tightening procedures are perfect for those who have moderate skin laxity and do not require any significant lifting. Also, patients who are pregnant or on hormone medication are not recommended to undergoing these treatment options.
