Best Way to Tighten Skin on Tummy?

I've always had a flat stomach, but just lately, even though I haven't gained weight, the skin on my stomach has become a little loose. This has also happen in my upper arm area. I was wondering if there is a laser available to treat this problem. I've heard of Titan,Thermage (which I had bad results with on my face), and Refirme. Please let me know which is best and if you are doctor in the NYC/NJ area that could help. Thanks!

GentleYag Laser Good For Skin Tightening

In my practice I use the GentleYag laser (Candela, 1064nm) for laser skin tightening.  The treatment runs from 10-20 minutes and is minimally painful with no downtime.  Typically optimal results are achieved with a series of treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart. Patients have been happy with the results, but by no means is laser skin tightening the best option for everyone.  I recommend you consult with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon to discuss your concerns and the best treatment options for achieving the results you are looking for.

How old are you, have you had children, what is your height and weight. All these things factor in before giving you an answer.
