What Is Loose Skin?
Loose skin occurs naturally over time due to a decline in collagen and elastin content. Skin laxity, especially in the face, has the effect of making people look much older than they really are. Until now, those struggling with loose skin have only had their plastic surgeons to turn to. Thankfully, alternative treatments that don’t require invasive operations do exist now. At Modern Dose, we’re happy to provide our effective PDO threading treatment to those struggling with this issue.
Why Does Loose Skin Occur?
Skin laxity due to a decline in elastin or rapid weight loss can be so discouraging. You do your best to maintain your appearance, and yet it sometimes seems like mother nature is not working in your favor. To make matters worse, certain environmental factors can increase the rate at which your skin loses elasticity. Frequent exposure to sunlight, irritants, and other factors has been shown to exacerbate signs of aging in the face. If you are in need of loose skin treatments, our PDO threading service may give you the help you seek.
Treating Loose Skin With PDO Threading
Your PDO threading procedure will start with a small injection of local anesthetic. After you are sufficiently numb, one of our specialists will place the PDO sutures just below the surface of your skin. When placed under the epidermis, the cones attached to these sutures provide an instant tightening and smoothing effect, giving a natural lift to the skin. Over the course of 18 months, the sutures safely dissolve, stimulating natural collagen production and offering long term results.
Unlike a traditional surgical procedure, there is no general anesthesia, cutting, and deep tissue manipulation needed for the PDO threading procedure. This treatment is more like getting fillers than having surgery. While some swelling and bruising may be seen after the treatment, these side effects typically subside in roughly two days. The PDO threading procedure lasts about 15-30 minutes and results tend to last for an average of 18-24 months in most cases.
