Have you succeeded in a recent weight loss? Congratulations!
Are you wondering why you have been left with areas of saggy, baggy skin, rather than firm, trim contours? Welcome to the reality of losing weight. Sagging skin after dropping kilos is all too common, which is why it is always a trending beauty topic. Like you, Costhetics wanted to know more about how celebs like Aussie fave Rebel Wilson look shapely not saggy after they get trim. Here’s what we found …
Face Time: Tightening Skin with Radiofrequency
The loss of facial fat is usually a cause for celebration when you’re dieting. Previously unseen cheekbones appear, creating new contours. At the same time, weight loss can also cause the face to become deflated. Coupled with natural collagen loss, weight loss can leave your face looking cadaverous.
Wilson avoided that particular weight-loss problem with the help of a skin-tightening facial treatment. Multipolar radiofrequency and pulsed magnetic fields are used to stimulate collagen production. This treatment is popular with the red-carpet set as benefits can be seen immediately. For maximum improvement, multiple treatments over a period of weeks are recommended.
Radio frequency waves penetrate both the dermis and epidermis. In addition to stimulating collagen, they also speed up cell renewal. Patients of both genders liken the non-invasive experience to a soothing, peaceful massage.
Contractions: Not Just for Pregnant Women
Another key factor in the new-and-improved Rebel Wilson is body contouring. The latest technology uses “high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy to trigger supramaximal contractions (the kind that cannot be achieved by voluntary muscle action),” says Allure Magazine. As many as 20,000 deep muscle contractions can be triggered during the 30-minute treatment chosen by Wilson.
The device is appropriate for both men and women. It burns fat, builds muscle, and tones the area in ways that would be impossible to accomplish through a regular physical workout regimen.
Other Hers and His Cosmetic Procedures
Most women are well versed on the subject of breast surgery, but gynecomastia, the surgery that helps men contour their chest, is much less known. Excess breast tissue may develop as the result of genetics, a hormone imbalance, or prescription medication. Chest skin also sags on men when they lose weight. Liposuction and laser fat removal can be useful for men. Breast reduction joins a long list of surgical and non-surgical fat reduction and skin tightening techniques adopted by men. Other popular options are:
- Cryolipolysis (Fat freezing)
- Laser liposuction
- Buccal (cheek) fat removal
Cryolipolysis has special appeal for men who have found that their workout routines simply can’t create the physique they envision. This treatment, in particular, has found favour as a non-invasive alternative to liposuction. The process uses chilled air that is cold enough to kill fat cells, but not so cold as to damage skin. After literally being frozen to death, the dead cells are removed by the body’s natural systems.
Laser liposuction is helpful for men who, like women, have hanging flesh under their arms. The problem can be corrected with an arm lift or with laser-enabled liposuction.
