4 Treatments to Complement Your Patient's Weight Loss

4 Treatments to Complement Your Patient's Weight Loss

Achieving a healthy weight is a great accomplishment. Those patients of yours who have lost excess weight have a lot to look forward to, including a healthier, more active life. However, in many cases dramatic weight loss presents new challenges that could keep patients from fully enjoying the benefits of their weight loss. Skin laxity, sagging skin, and excess skin are common concerns for those who have shed extra weight and typically affects the abdomen, flanks, upper arms, thighs, and even the lower back. The same areas can often hold onto fatty tissue that even diet and exercise might not budge. Cellulite is another common concern.   

You can help your patients who have recently transformed their bodies with non-invasive aesthetic treatments to tighten skin and treat those stubborn areas. Heres how to give them the toned, sculpted look theyre aiming for without resorting to a surgical procedure. 

Surgical vs. Non-Invasive Options  

For patients who have undergone a dramatic weight transformation, there are both surgical and non-invasive options for resolving sagging skin left after weight loss. However, in many cases, going the surgical route isnt necessary, and non-invasive treatments can contour the body effectively without the associated cost, downtime, and risk.  

Surgical procedures for post-weight loss skin laxity, such as tummy tucks, require significant recovery time, tend to be painful during the healing process, leave a scar, and incur a high cost— which is usually not by covered by insurance as they often count as elective cosmetic procedures. 

In contrast, non-invasive aesthetic treatments powered by Venus Concepts industry-leading medical device technology deliver results with little to no discomfort, no downtime, can be completed over a lunch hour, and are safe for all skin types. For your clients, the benefits are clear.
