Kim Kardashian’s “painful-but-worth-it” Stomach Tightening Procedure

Kim Kardashian shared a photo of her stomach on her story on Wednesday after receiving a skin tightening treatment that she says is painful but a “game-changer”.

The laser treatment is called Morpheus, and it is used to tighten, lift, and contour areas with wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring. The treatment uses a combination of micro-needling and radio-frequency energy for a two-in-one overall sculpting effect.

How Does It Work?

The laser works on the surface by heating the tissue under the skin to remold fat and contract connective tissue. At the same time, radio-frequency waves penetrate three targeted skin layers in one cycle.

And the micro-needling helps to stimulate collagen production to further tighten the skin.

What To Expect?

Well, since Morpheus is a new technology, there is not any evidence of long-term effects. But according to some patients, results take up to three weeks to appear and they last for about one year. For how many sessions will you need to see desired results… Dermatologists recommend at least three sessions which will cost around $1,850.

Caring more than anyone about her look, the mom of four has opened up about undergoing other laser treatments before.

“I really, genuinely care about looking good,” she told Allure. “I probably care more than 90 percent of the people on this planet. It’s not easy when you’re a mom and you’re exhausted at the end of the day or you’re in school, and I’m all of the above.” That said, Kim Kardashian tends to reserve her beauty regimens for late at night. “I do my beauty treatments usually late at night,” Kim added. “After everyone’s in bed, I’m doing laser treatments.”

But lately, she admitted that she’s not on a mission to fix every single thing;

“I’m at peace with not being perfect and I wasn’t like that before. [Getting older] doesn’t mean that I won’t strive for perfection,” she continued. “But you get to a point where you’re like, Okay, my health is more important than anything else.'”
