There are a lot of potential causes of loose or sagging skin. You may have loose skin on your arms, abdomen, or face especially if you have lost a significant amount of weight. You may also have sagging skin on your body if you have had a surgery that left dimpling. Other potential causes of sagging skin include cellulite, yo-yoing weight due to health or pregnancy, and simple aging and reduction of collagen in the skin.
Luckily, there are some very effective treatments for tightening loose skin on the face or other parts of the body. One of the most effective treatments is Accent. Accent skin firming treatments use radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen production in the body so that skin firms naturally.
The Accent skin tightening treatments are short, painless, and only take about an hour. During the treatment, the inner layers of skin tissue are heated with a radiofrequency laser. This causes a reaction that increases collagen production, which will firm and tighten skin naturally over time.
It takes about four to six Accent treatments to get the results you are looking for. While Accent will firm and tighten your skin, you may still have a bit of sagging effect on your arms or thighs depending on the fat beneath the layers of skin. However, you will see a vast improvement over time. Your final results will last for many months, if not years. Of course, additional factors that could cause loose or sagging skin could undo your efforts and require additional treatments.
