Is My Skin Too Saggy for Nonsurgical Body Contouring?
Are you concerned about areas like the abdomen, hips, buttocks, upper arms, or thighs? While there is no cure for loose or excess skin, nonsurgical body contouring is becoming more popular among men and women at Sereno Santé in San Jose, CA.
Patients with mild to moderate sagging skin are great candidates for our advanced Alma Accent Prime, but it is important to meet with a trained professional to discuss your goals and concerns. Meet with Dr. Maia Chakerian today and find out if this noninvasive treatment is a good fit for your needs.
What causes loose skin around the body?
Many factors can contribute to sagging skin that does not "bounce back" over time:
Natural aging: Age causes our bodies to produce less collagen and elastin, two proteins that keep our skin firm and elastic.
Genetics: Some people are more predisposed to having loose skin than others.
Weight gain or pregnancy: When you gain weight quickly, the skin stretches to accommodate the excess fat. However, weight loss does not always mean that your skin will return to its original shape.
Other factors: Loose skin can also be caused by sun damage, smoking, and certain medical conditions.
Some people do consider surgery to remove excess skin and tissue, but these procedures can be invasive or lead to long recovery times. Sereno Santé provides cutting-edge technologies, like the Alma Accent Prime, to achieve stunning results without going under the knife.
How does nonsurgical body contouring tighten skin?
The Alma Accent Prime combines ultrasound and radiofrequency energy to deliver gentle heat. This heat stimulates new collagen production that eventually tightens loose skin. In addition, these technologies damage excess fat cells, so they are eventually flushed from the body. Treatment at Sereno Santé is clinically proven to be safe and effective, and can be used on all skin types.
Is nonsurgical body contouring right for me?
Dr. Chakerian will perform an in-office evaluation to determine if you are healthy enough for nonsurgical body contouring with the Alma Accent Prime. During this appointment in San Jose, CA, we discuss the following:
Your medical history: Be sure to tell us about any health conditions and medications that could affect your candidacy.
Your goals: What would you like to achieve with nonsurgical body contouring? Dr. Chakerian will help set realistic goals for your treatment plan.
Your lifestyle: We recommend maintaining a healthy weight after treatment for long-lasting results.
Mild to moderate cases of skin laxity is best for treatment with the Alma Accent Prime. However, severe cases may require surgery to remove the sagging skin. Our team can let you know what is possible during an assessment.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions needed depends on the severity of your skin laxity. Most patients see positive results after one session, but it may take several appointments to see the full effects. Dr. Chakerian will provide a more detailed estimate during your initial consultation. Sessions are safe, comfortable, and do not require long treatment times.
