Three Reasons You May Need Skin Tightening Treatments

By: Dr. Brenda Vozza


Loose skin can be a frustrating problem for many people, especially as we age. Fortunately, advanced skin tightening treatment at Brookridge Internal Medicine Associates, P.A. provides a firmer and more youthful-looking complexion without invasive cosmetic surgery.

So, how does skin tightening work? Alma Accent Prime combines ultrasound and radiofrequency (RF) energies to contract the skin and encourage collagen production, leading to an overall improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and laxity.

There are several reasons you may benefit from this state-of-the-art body contouring technology in Longview, TX, including signs of aging, pregnancy, and weight loss. Read below to learn more, or call to meet with Dr. Brenda Vozza to discuss your individual goals.

1. Age-related skin changes

Our bodies produce less collagen – a protein essential for firm, flexible skin – over time. This leads to fine lines and sagging on the face and neck. Even minor signs of aging can make us feel and look older. Though over-the-counter wrinkle creams help, these topical products only address surface issues.

So, how can you turn back the hands of time? Alma Accent Prime is designed to stimulate new collagen production to promote a firmer appearance from the inside out. Our skin tightening treatment is a great way to rejuvenate your features.

2. Post-pregnancy skin changes

After the rewarding experience of having a baby, you may be disappointed that areas like the abdomen and hips have lost their firmness. This is because pregnancy stretches out the skin and may not snap back into place after delivery. An increase in pregnancy-related hormones like estrogen only accelerates this issue.

Women feel self-conscious and frustrated when their appearance does not match their desired image. Alma Accent Prime provides much-needed relief and can restore your pre-pregnancy shape without liposuction or body contouring surgery in Longview, TX.

3. Weight loss-related skin changes

Bariatric surgery and other weight loss methods are life-saving and help you reach a healthier lifestyle. Unfortunately, those who have lost a significant amount of weight are left with loose skin that does not respond well to diet and exercise. Clothing does not fit properly, and you may feel even more self-conscious than before you lost weight.

Skin tightening can help you feel amazing after such a life-changing accomplishment. Alma Accent Prime tightens and contours nearly any area impacted by weight loss so you can proudly show off your new figure.

What about cosmetic surgery?

We understand that plastic surgery can provide more dramatic results than Alma Accent Prime. However, it is important to remember that any surgery – even minimally invasive treatments — comes with risks and requires downtime. Our solution provides real results with little-to-no recovery time and minimal discomfort.

An assessment at Brookridge Internal Medicine Associates, P.A. is essential to determine if this treatment is a viable option moving forward. Dr. Vozza may ask about the cause of your skin laxity and suggest an alternative body contouring solution if necessary. Rest assured that you will receive personalized care and honest advice.
