What can I use to tighten my skin?
For some people, having to contend with loose skin after losing a lot of weight can be disappointing. You may feel victory in one area but defeat in another. Loose skin may also result from a number of other reasons like age, hormones and lifestyle. But you don’t necessarily accept this condition. In fact, there are a lot of ways that you can increase your skin’s elasticity and tighten the areas you need.
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 facial skin. If you drink ample amount of water every day, you can slowly tighten your facial 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 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 facial skin tightening is an effective treatment option. It is an FDA-approved treatment that softens wrinkles 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. Here at Sparkle Lifestyle & MediSpa, we are happy to offer Pelleve skin tightening treatment. Our specialists will assess the condition of your skin and answer your questions regarding the treatment.

CO2 laser is a great treatment for tightening 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.
Regular exercise is one of the keys to healthy skin. “We tend to focus on the cardiovascular benefits of physical activity, and those are important. But anything that promotes healthy circulation also helps keep your skin healthy and vibrant,” says dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD. Exercise increases blood flow, nourishes skin cells and keeps them vital. “Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout the body, including the skin,” says Marmur. Exercise makes your muscles firmer and firmer muscles have a direct effect on skin and that helps you look younger.
Bend Skin Care
Bend Skin Care is a very effective supplement that nourishes and tightens the skin. The supplements work by providing a full body 24/7 UV protection. It also increases hydration, helps with skin firmness and elasticity, reduces redness and roughness, and provides free radical protection. The supplements contain antioxidants zeaxanthin and lutein, vitamin D, EPA, GLA and the fatty acid DHC. These ingredients work cohesively to reduce skin inflammation, lock in moisture and promote healthy cell function.
You can remove dry/ dead skin cells on the surface of your skin by exfoliating. Besides helping many skin problems, exfoliation increases blood circulation resulting in healthy and glowing skin. A scrub does not work exactly in the same way as a regular soap or cleanser. A scrub uses small particles, beads or chemicals that help remove old skin cells and make way for new ones. Choosing a natural or chemical scrub suited for your skin type, massage the scrub into damp skin for a few minutes and then rinse and moisture your skin. Do it once or twice a week. Make a scrub a part of your regular skin care routine.
