Feeling confident in your skin can be challenging when loose skin, cellulite, and stubborn bulges intrude on your plans! With warmer weather rolling around, it can be difficult to find a quick solution to restoring both your skin’s elasticity, and your confidence.

As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity and can start to sag, amongst many other reasons. This can be a frustrating and distressing experience for many people, especially if you’ve put in the effort and work in boosting your weight loss and fitness. Fortunately, your distress ends here! Here’s our favorite ways to tone that skin back up, along with our little skin tightening secret, EvolveX.

What causes loose skin?

Loose skin is a common concern for many people, especially as they age. There are several factors that can contribute to the loss of skin elasticity, leading to sagging, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

These are some of the most common causes of loose skin:

  • Aging
  • Sun Damage
  • Rapid Weight Loss
  • Genetics
  • Smoking
  • Poor Nutrition
  • Hormonal Changes

How can loose skin be prevented and treated?

Healthy lifestyle habits play a huge role in the health of your skin, and when put into practice, they prevent excess skin and the loss of elasticity. While there is no at-home miracle cure to tightening saggy skin, these are some important things you can do to support your production of collagen and improve skin appearance.

Stay hydrated

1. Stay hydrated

Think you drink enough water? It’s estimated that up to 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated! Drinking plenty of water is essential for healthy skin. When the skin is hydrated, it appears plumper and tighter. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day to help keep your skin hydrated and healthy.

2. Eat a balanced diet

A healthy, balanced diet is important for overall health, including the health of your skin. Eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats can help improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of loose skin. Foods that are high in antioxidants, such as berries, can also help protect the skin from damage and improve its appearance.

3. Exercise regularly

Regular physical activity can help improve skin elasticity by increasing blood flow and stimulating collagen production. Resistance training, in particular, can help build muscle mass and improve skin tightness. Additionally, this will prevent further weight gain that stretches out your skin. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise most days of the week, and this can give you natural body lift.

4. Use skin-firming products

While skin care products alone aren’t miracles, taking your skin care routine down to your body can help maintain elasticity over time. There are many over-the-counter skin-firming products available, such as lotions and creams that contain ingredients such as retinoids, vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients can help improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of loose skin!

5. Get enough sleep

Getting enough sleep is essential for overall health, including the health of your skin. When you sleep, your body produces collagen and repairs damaged skin cells, which can help improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of loose skin. Say no to late nights and aim for your precious seven to eight hours of sleep a night.

6. Quit smoking

We know it can be a hard habit to quit, but we promise it’s worth it! Smoking damages collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, leading to a loss of elasticity and the development of loose skin. Quitting those cigarettes and vapes can help improve skin health and prevent further loosening and wrinkling!

7. Tighten up with non-invasive treatments

Let’s face it, loose skin is hard to treat on your own, but it’s effortless in our office. There are several non-invasive treatments available that can help tighten loose skin in no time. These include radiofrequency treatments like EvolveX, which use heat energy to stimulate collagen production and improve skin tightness.

Transform your body with EvolveX

EvolveX is a cutting-edge, non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses hands-free applicators to deliver bipolar radiofrequency energy and deep heating to the subdermal layers of the skin. This stimulates collagen and elastin production– restoring skin tightness.

It doesn’t just stop there– EvolveX can enhance muscle strength using electrical muscle stimulation, while you sit back and relax. With its muscle toning capabilities alongside unbelievable skin tightening, it’s the perfect option to saying goodbye to loose skin, and hello to a beautifully toned figure– without the pain or recovery time of body contouring surgeries.

Do I need body contouring to treat loose skin?

Depending on the severity, body contouring treatments may be needed, especially if you’re dealing with loose skin after weight loss. While these tips are great for maintaining and improving the elasticity of your skin, non-surgical body contouring such as EvolveX treatments can help you achieve your aesthetic goals in no time.

If you’re ready to flaunt your body in confidence, EvolveX is a miracle treatment that can tone muscles, reduce stubborn fat, and fight against lax skin!
