The Skin-Tightening Procedure Kim Kardashian Says Is ‘Painful But Worth It’



We all know that sometimes beauty is pain, and Kim Kardashian is no stranger to the concept. The reality TV star and business mogul shared her latest “painful but worth it” treatment to her Instagram followers yesterday, revealing that she underwent a laser procedure to tighten the skin on her abdomen.

Kardashian’s new favorite treatment comes from Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Ashkan Ghavami, MD, who conducted a skin-tightening treatment using InMode Morpheus8. The minimally invasive procedure uses microneedling to penetrate the subdermal tissue to coagulate fat and contract the tissue along with directional radio frequency energy to heat the deep layers of skin and revitalize collagen. The device works from deep within, prompting the building blocks inside the skin to reorganize themselves in a way that promotes anti-aging properties, resulting in a youthful, firmer skin.

The photo Kardashian shared to her Instagram story of her during the treatment shows her skin to be noticeably red, and the star admits that the process is painful, but she swears it is her favorite laser treatments and that the results are well worth the discomfort. After all, a little pinch is a small price to pay for Kim K abs.
