Tummy Skin Tightening is a treatment that you might want to consider in Singapore. It is a non-invasive procedure that stimulates existing collagen and promotes the rise of new ones to address the slightly loose skin in the area. Supported by several studies to support its skin tightening action, it can also reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1. How does Tummy Skin Tightening work?
Tummy Skin Tightening is a non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to target the inner skin tissues to stimulate collagen renewal (McDaniel et al., 2014). It can address skin sagging in the abdomen, thighs, arms and buttocks. It can also smooth the look of dimpled skin on the body and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.
2. How long will Tummy Skin Tightening take?
The length of treatment depends on the part of the body that is being treated and the condition of the skin. The abdominal area will take longer than the face, but we can give you an estimate after we are able to personally evaluate your case.
3. Will Tummy Skin Tightening be painful?
At The Aesthetics Centre, we use the new generation machine which delivers a cooling sensation when the device comes in contact with the skin. The radiofrequency pulse that stimulates collagen renewal can be felt like a brief heating sensation which is then followed by a cooling sensation. Through the course of the procedure, our team will also make sure that you are made comfortable adjusting accordingly so the heat can reach into the subcutaneous tissue, or the deeper layers of the skin without any pain (Araújo et al., 2015).
4. How many treatments will I need?
It was advertised back in the day that only one treatment is enough, however, experts are abandoning this approach. The number of sessions needed will depend on our evaluation of your skin. Some patients may require more sessions than others, as we react differently to treatments. The condition of the patient’s skin would also be taken into consideration in mapping out the treatment plan.
5. How long before I can return to my normal activities?
Tummy Skin Tightening doesn’t require any downtime after the procedure, so you can return to your usual activities immediately after the session.
6. How long will the results last?
The results are noticeable after the treatment (McDaniel et al., 2014) but you will continue to experience more improvement as months go by. After this, you may come again for touch-up sessions to maintain the results.
