Ask The Expert: I Lost Weight, And Now Have Sagging, Loose Skin

Despite losing a massive amount of weight, a lot of people are still unhappy with how their body looks. This is usually because, after shedding a couple of pounds, their body may be lighter but is now being weighed down with folds of sagging skin, causing physical and (sometimes) emotional pain.

Why does skin loosen after losing weight?

The skin is an elastic living tissue that stretches as we grow or shrink. So when we lose weight (especially when we lose it quickly), our skin finds it harder to adapt to the new body shape, causing it to sag. This is even more aggravated when you’re older, have poor nutrition, don’t drink water enough, constantly smoke, or have excessive sun exposure.

How do we tighten sagging, loose skin?

Go slow

When you shed off weight too quickly, you usually end up losing more muscle than fat, causing the skin to sag. Our muscle acts a supportive tissue that glues all the skin onto our body, so it’s important we don’t shock it into losing more weight than necessary.

Be sure to hydrate yourself

Drinking water helps maintain our skin’s elasticity, preventing it from sagging as we lose weight.

Nourish yourself with the right proteins

Collagen and elastin are two ingredients that keep our skin elastic and plump. These two are usually found in protein foods like - cottage cheese, milk, legumes, tofu, beans, seeds, nuts, and fish. The oil in these foods also help contribute to the skin’s elasticity.

Care for your skin

Avoid using soaps, dishwashing liquids, or shampoos that contain harsh ingredients like sulfate. Also, limit sun exposure and chlorinated water as these decreases your skin’s elasticity.

Try skin tightening treatments

Velapro2 is the most advanced body contouring treatment, as it combines the use of radiofrequency and infrared to reshape, tighten, and tone loose skin. The treatment’s usually done by heating the fatty areas on the body, reducing them in size and flushing it out of the body’s lymphatic drainage system.

Beam Lipolysis, a non-invasive body toning treatment and a safer alternative to Liposuction, uses laser activity to contour the treated area, promoting skin contraction.

Both of these treatments come with minimal downtime and discomfort, whilst targeting sagging and loose skin.

Dear Slimspa, You are one of the best spa but there will always be one more room for improvement. Your room lights, more machines so we can enjoy more time to have our treatments. We like all your staff, they are really good. Keep it up! God bless!

Slimspa Team, Thank you for your special treatment. Your spa is very welcoming and professional. I had satisfying results and will come back for sure.

To Slimspa Having a great healthy figure is a compromise and full time job. An awesome diet and gym is the key but for a faster result I tried manual massages and endermologies, the results were amazing, long lasting and meet all my expectations. Cellulite is not about exercise as much as intake of water & estimulation through massages and that's what I got from these treatments & great increase in collagen in my skin. I truly recommend LPG products and treatments,I am happy client.

I had got a very impressive result from my anti cellulite treatments and really like to thank my therapist Soumiys for being so professional , precise and patience . The spa itself is very clean , the staff were friendly and my treatment always starts & ends on time .

Amazing spa and reasonably priced for LPG! I had good results and the therapist Ciby is so knowledgeable and professional. Definitely coming back!

Had a great experience with Hanna. She matched my colour perfectly and I find her cut the easiest to manage and style.

It was a pleasant experience. The staff was friendly, made me feel welcome and explained everything / procedures for my treatment to me. I will definitely go there again for future treatments. Thank you so much. I have already experienced some of the desired results - just two weeks after my first treatment! So I already booked my next treatment and am very excited about possible future results.

I had a wonderful experience with the spa, the combination of treatments was very helpful on my goal to get a better figure. The personal was professional, I believe they have always keep the expectations to reality and would recommend to anyone who wants to achieve results.

The Hydrafacial was totally excellent. The great ambience coupled with the helpful and kind behaviour of the staff, the treatment was not only useful for my skin but also had been a very pleasant experience

Currently undergoing Venus Legacy sessions (with Somaya) and manual anti cellulite massage (Warda) and they do wonders! After four sessions I see the results. Everyone is super accommodating and professional.

Really impressed with this place. They offer all types of solutions for slimming and body contouring. Had cellulite treatment here and was more than satisfied with the results. The staff are very professional and very friendly and they will give you the best advice and solutions.

Efficient, friendly, personalized attention and warm service. Very comfortable going ahead with their treatments owing to their experienced staff.
