Having a baby is a joyous occasion and it’s something that many women go through at least once during their lifetime. However, all of the weight gain that is associated with having a baby takes a toll on their bodies over time. Sometimes the weight doesn’t come off after having the baby, which in turn will cause women to have low self-confidence. Other times, women can lose their extra baby weight, but they are left with saggy skin with stretch marks. This may also cause women to have low self-confidence. If this sounds like what you’re going through, SkinTyte at Delaney MD may be the solution you’re looking for!
What is SkinTyte?
The SkinTyte procedure is a non-surgical and non-invasive way to help tighten up the loose and sagging skin that you have on your body after having a baby. This procedure is FDA-approved, and can be used on almost any part of your body. This is an outpatient procedure that transforms your skin. One of our surgeons will use a tool that uses BroadBand Light (BBL) technology. This will send strong, effective pluses called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to the area designated for treatment.
The light creates an intense amount of energy and begins to quickly pulse, which encourages natural healing coping mechanisms in the body. Once your skin is heated, the technology protects the top layer of your skin by keeping it cool. Your skin will not look as saggy as it was previously. As a new mom with a saggy belly, this treatment will definitely help you gain your confidence back.
Usually, since this procedure is an outpatient one, there is no downtime needed. Additional treatments are usually completed to get the best results from SkinTyte. If some cases, it has taken up to four months to be able to notice a difference and see the full results from the procedure.
