Ways to tighten belly skin
Ways to tighten belly skin
You may have loose belly skin for several reasons. It may occur after pregnancy or if you have lost an excess amount of weight. When you lose weight, you may have loose, sagging skin hiding abdominal muscles. This condition can significantly affect your self esteem. But don’t worry. There are some effective steps you can take to tighten belly skin.
Limit sun exposure
Ultraviolet radiation present in the sun’s rays breaks down the collagen and elastin fibers and thus speeds the natural aging process. Your skin will retain its firmness if you reduce or avoid sun exposure. In order to avoid excessive exposure to the sun, wear a sunscreen when you need to go outside. You can also consider wearing a hat with a wide brim. When you head to the beach or pool, sitting under an umbrella will help you protect your skin from excessive exposure to the sun.
Sunscreen should be considered seriously because it protects your skin from both UVA and UVB. UVA penetrates the skin deeper than UVB rays, causes wrinkles and contributes to skin cancer. UVB also causes sunburn and can lead to skin cancer.
The power of drinking water and the positive effects it can have on your skin should not be underestimated. As the largest organ in your body, your skin protects you, stores lipids and water, prevents fluid loss and serves as thermoregulation. Drinking more water is essential for beaming, glowing and healthy abdominal skin. If you drink ample amount of water every day, you can slowly tighten your belly skin and maintain a healthy glow. A PH value of 7 is neutral and it is the exact PH value of pure water. Drinking more water ensures that your PH value is balanced. Water also helps tighten your skin by flushing out toxins, reducing wrinkles, preventing pimples and moisturizing the skin.
Radiofrequency technology is one of the best treatment options for tightening abdominal skin. Now Radiofrequency energy is being used for skin tightening, inducing the production of new collagen and improving the skin’s overall health. This technology is also used in medical procedures to treat medical conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases and chronic pain.
Pelleve skin tightening is an effective treatment option. It is an FDA-approved treatment that tightens skin with almost no pain, no anesthesia, no needles and no downtime. You can see firmer, tighter skin after just a single, one-hour treatment.
This technology works by delivering constant, gradual energy to the skin. The heat causes the collagen deep inside the skin to contract and stimulate the growth of new collagen over time. This process results in firmer and tighter skin in the treated area.

CO2 laser is a great treatment for tightening abdominal skin as well as treating pigmentation, wrinkles and general sun damage on the skin. The laser causes vaporization of the skin and this process leads to tightening. The microscopic laser penetrates the skin and transforms sun damaged skin into healthy looking skin by stimulating collagen. This treatment works excellent for tightening sagging skin. Patients can see immediate results and the results increase over time as the deep layers of the skin begins to heal.
CO2 laser treatments are usually performed after sedation. Patients are given either oral or IV. This treatment is less aggressive, and has fewer side effects, but requires 3-5 sessions to see the best results.
Here at Sparkle Lifestyle & MediSpa, we use CO2RE (CORE) fractional laser from Syneron and Candela. This is the newest fractional laser and it can treat wrinkles and rejuvenate skin on the superficial and the deep level. This technology has gained reputation for treating scars, discoloration, wrinkles and skin laxity. CORE has proven to be extremely effective in treating pigmentation and skin laxity. This technology features dual laser waves that can be adjusted to penetrate the skin at both superficial and deep levels simultaneously.
You can add foods to your diet that encourage the production of elastin and collagen. These are the compounds your body makes that give your skin elasticity. Consuming certain foods will help tighten loose skin.
Due to its vitamin C contents, citrus fruits positively impact the elasticity of your skin. Your body requires 75 to 90 mg vitamin C daily. Citrus fruits like orange and Indian gooseberry also provide zinc and selenium – nutrients that help elastin production.
Bell peppers are also an excellent source of vitamin C and zinc.
Cruciferous vegetables like Brussels sprouts, cabbage, Daikon radishes, rutabagas, broccoli and watercress provide nutrients needed for skin health.
