We all know that no matter how much you work out after having a baby, the loose skin in the abdomen area can be a difficult task to eliminate and overcome.
Now it is possible to get your body back to your pre-pregnancy shape by tightening up any skin laxity or sagging skin in under an hour and without surgery, injections or downtime. The Refirme, skin tightening laser system by Syneron uses two different types of energies to heat up the skin [dermis]. The infrared light and radio-frequency gently bulk heats the area to stimulate the body's natural processes to renew the skin's collagen foundation resulting in a tighter, healthier-looking skin.
Skin tightening treatments take between 30-45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. According to Dr. Rubaum, Director of the Laser Image Company in Redondo Beach who uses the Refirme laser system, "Most patients see an immediate change, with an increased tightening of the skin seen over time. The laser energies turn on the body's natural production of collagen for up to 6 months so expect your results to continue to improve."
The picture below is of a 38 year old women's abdomen after pregnancy. Following one Refirme skin tightening treatment shown on the right, we can see the loose skin above the belly button considerably reduced and improved.
The Refirme skin tightening treatment can also be used on any area of the body including face, neck, knees and arms with the same successful results. Dr. Rubaum continued, "We have even used the laser to tighten the skin on the upper eyelids, giving a more open look to the eyes and raising the brow."
With cost ranging somewhere between $150 - $500 per treatment, the Refirme skin tightening procedure is an efficient, effective and inexpensive alternative to reverse the adverse results of baby pregnancies while providing a younger looking and healthy skin for all of our patients.
