How to Tighten Skin After Weight Loss

November 27, 2015 | slimedica

Losing weight is a lot of work and a great accomplishment. Often, that health victory is met with a common obstacle, loose skin. When you lose a large amount of weight in a short period of time, you may have to deal with loose or excess skin. Loose skin after weight loss doesn’t have to shatter your confidence. Skin evolves with us over time. It can stretch and expand and stretch again. There are several ways you can address loose skin. Here are a few options for tightening loose skin.

Check Your Plate

If you’ve lost weight, chances are that you have recently changed your diet. If you want to improve your skin’s elasticity, then you should be sure you’re eating a diet that has a good amount of the following.

Protein: Protein helps keep your skin moist and improves elasticity. If you are a vegetarian, you can get these proteins from nuts, legumes and fish for pescetarians.

Vegetables: Vegetables contain water and vitamins that hydrate the skin and support elasticity.

Water: Moisture is essential for skin elasticity. Our bodies are made of 50 – 70% water, so it’s important to stay hydrated.

Build muscle
While building muscle doesn’t exactly tighten the skin, it can make it fit better. By building muscle, you are filling out your new leaner frame.


TightSculpting uses non-invasive laser technology to sculpt and tighten skin. The first wavelength of this unique laser rapidly heats fat cells beneath the skin to shrink fatty tissues and coagulate underlying collagen fibers. The second wavelength causes an immediate tightening of your skin. In just one treatment you will see smoother, tighter skin.

Zerona Laser Weight Loss Treatment

Using cold laser technology, the Zerona laser creates small tears in your fat cells, signaling your body to secrete and filter the fat out through your body’s normal activities. Without major surgery, our clients have seen inches removed from their bodies as a result of this treatment.
