Several factors can cause loose skin. Many people end up with this problem after a significant amount of weight loss. As the body loses fat, skin that had stretched to accommodate extra weight remains. Loose skin might also develop due to aging. As the body loses collagen and elasticity, the skin can droop, especially on the face or around the jaw and neck.
Our team at WWFM Center treats loose skin with the ICON™ laser system, a method that can address a wide range of cosmetic concerns, tighten the skin, and resurface problem areas, so they are firmer and younger-looking.
The 1540 ICON laser is specifically designed for skin resurfacing, and is the only FDA-cleared laser for this type of fractional, non-ablative (no needles) treatment. For loose skin, the laser works quickly at high speeds, penetrating deeply to reach problem areas.
Loose skin can manifest as sagging, stretch marks, or jowls. However, the ICON laser can also address surgical scars, acne scars, and other imperfections. This allows our team at WWFM Center to not only tighten up loose skin, but to drastically improve the appearance of your face or body at the same time.
During an ICON laser session, your provider uses a small, handheld laser to treat the affected areas. Targeted light penetrates deep into the skin’s sublayers and triggers the body’s natural healing response and collagen production. An entire session lasts about 30 minutes, and most patients report that it’s a painless experience. You might feel pressure, tingling, or slight pinching sensations.
Every patient is different, so you might need more than one treatment to achieve the results you want. Some people are satisfied with just one session. Recovery time is short, and you can expect to return to your normal activities right away. After your first session, you’ll follow up with the WWFM team to discuss the next steps and to make sure you’re getting the desired results.
