Did you know that our skin is the largest organ of our bodies? As adults, our skin weighs approximately 8 pounds and covers about 22 square feet. And, did you know that the skin on your face only makes up about 9% of that total square footage? Even so, the majority of us have a tendency to focus only on this small percentage of skin that’s on our face and neck, from pursuing products to care for and enhance it to procedures to turn back the hands of time and help erase the signs of gravity and aging. But, what about the other 91%? In fact, the effects of gravity and aging actually show up all over our bodies, so shouldn’t we be treating all of our skin? As well as facial solutions, SkinCeuticals® now offers body solutions! One treatment I really like is their Body Tightening Concentrate, which I have incorporated into the body treatments that we offer at Aqua Medical Spa, and my clients are loving it!
Over time, skin laxity is inevitable. Whether it is caused by gravity, aging or weight loss, the effect is the same: loose, creped and sometimes dry skin. These particularly stubborn areas of loose skin most often include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and back of arms, and require special attention. Fortunately, there is SkinCeuticals® Body Tightening Concentrate. This product’s firming and smoothing cryo-fluid treatment has the power to help tighten and enhance skin that has become loose or uneven, minimizing the appearance of creping and sagging. Its intensely moisturizing formula features peptides to help stimulate your healthy collagen production and support your skin’s natural repair processes. It also soothes on contact to relieve irritation from environmental stressors, making it perfect for you to use directly after sun exposure. The lifting, firming and toning properties also make this Body Tightening Concentrate an exemplary, complimentary product for use after fat reduction and skin tightening procedures, such as Venus Freeze™ and CoolSculpting®.
Body Tightening Concentrate contains 2.5% bio-active tripeptides, which treat loose skin by stimulating the production of hyaluronic acid and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). Both are essential molecules that can bind up to 1,000 times their weight in water, thus, volumizing skin. In addition, the inclusion of menthyl lactate (an ester of lactic acid) in this product provides gentle exfoliation and is an excellent humectant, resulting in smoother more hydrated skin.
This lightweight, gel-like lotion is paraben- and fragrance-free, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin. It applies smoothly and easily absorbs, leaving skin feeling exceptionally soft and cool. With regular use and applied twice a day, the combination of ingredients in SkinCeuticals® Body Tightening Concentrate will provide lifting, firming, tightening and smoothing of skin texture. And, unlike immediate superficial tightening treatments, it actually targets sagging, loose skin from within for long-lasting results and resilience.
