Lax Belly Skin Try These Skin Tightening Options at Cerulean Medical Institute in Kelowna BC

Many people struggle with loose skin around their abdomen due to factors like aging, weight loss, pregnancy, or genetics. Fortunately, advancements in cosmetic procedures have provided several effective treatment solutions for tightening lax belly skin. Patients looking to tone their bodies and enhance their figure should consider the following skin tightening treatments in Kelowna.

Radiofrequency Skin Tightening

Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening in Kelowna is a non-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy waves to heat the deeper layers of the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are proteins naturally found in the skin and are largely responsible for keeping the skin smooth, firm and tight. Natural aging, sun exposure, and other factors like smoking gradually cause collagen and elastin production to slow down and existing collagen and elastin fibers break down. By replenishing collagen & elastin and restoring the skin’s structure, the skin is tightened and smoothed.

One of the key benefits of RF skin tightening is its ability to tighten lax belly skin without surgery or downtime. During the treatment, the energy based device delivers controlled RF energy to the targeted areas with little to no discomfort. Patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. While results may vary, many individuals notice gradual improvements in skin laxity over the following weeks and months as collagen and elastin production increases. A series of treatments is needed for optimal results.

Ultrasound Skin Tightening

Ultrasound skin tightening is another non-surgical skin tightening treatment that uses advanced lifting and tightening technology. This procedure utilizes focused ultrasound energy to target specific depths beneath the skin’s surface, where collagen and elastin production is stimulated. By delivering precise energy to the deeper layers of tissue, ultrasound technology can effectively tighten and lift sagging skin.

Like RF skin tightening, ultrasound skin tightening treatments are typically well-tolerated and require minimal downtime. Patients may experience some temporary redness or swelling following the procedure, but these side effects usually resolve quickly. Ultrasound skin tightening is suitable for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity who are seeking noticeable improvements without surgery. It can be used alone or in combination with RF energy.


Radiesse is a collagen and elastin boosting injectable treatment option in Kelowna for loose skin with no downtime. Unlike traditional soft tissue fillers, which are made of hyaluronic acid, Radiesse contains calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres to stimulate collagen production. When injected into the skin, the CaHA microspheres provide immediate volume while also stimulating the body’s natural collagen production over time. Improvements can be seen over the course of 2-4 works, with best results seen 3-6 months later

One of the advantages of Radiesse is its longevity and safety for almost all patients since CaHA is a biocompatible substance that works naturally with existing collagen and elastin. Results can last up to a year or more, making it a long-lasting option for improving skin laxity. Additionally, Radiesse injections can be customized to address specific areas of concern, allowing for tailored treatment plans based on individual needs. Radiesse can be used to all areas of lax on the face and body, including lax belly skin, elbows, knees, thighs, buttocks, etc.

Best Skin Tightening Results

Best skin tightening results are seen with a combination of Radiesse followed by radiofrequency and ultrasound tightening. The collagen and elastin boosting effect from Radiesse is amplified with radiofrequency and ultrasound treatments. This results in an even tighter, smoother lifted skin.
