We all have it, and we try to hide it! Sagging skin is one of the most common signs of aging and one of the most difficult things to hide. Until recently, the only option to fix it was with a face lift which is both expensive and a slightly terrifying prospect! Finally, there is a far less daunting but just as effective method that doesn’t involve going under the knife, and it takes less than an hour. Dermal Face Threading is the latest non-surgical technique that is everywhere in Hollywood. Celebs are using this treatment for both their face and body. It gets instant results with no downtime and no scars!
What does it do?
The PDO (Polydioxanone) Thread Lift is an easy way to smooth wrinkles and tighten sagging skin. A needle is inserted just under the skin in the direction of the lift. The needle is removed and the PDO thread remains. The thread will be fully absorbed into the skin by the process of hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months and will not leave behind any scar tissue. The threads not only add an immediate tightening effect, as if a face lift has been performed, but over time they stimulate collagen production. This means that the lifting effect will remain even after the thread has dissolved.
Where is the procedure done?
The treatment can be used to tighten sagging skin almost anywhere on the body (neck, decolletage, tummy, arms and legs), but it’s most effective when performed on the neck and jawline. In our dental office Dr Richins is certified to lift the cheeks, reduce facial lines and creases, and lift the jowls (the sagging skin under your neck).
What are the results?
Results can be seen almost instantly. Optimal results are seen around six weeks after the procedure (depending on the type of threads used). Results can last up to two years. The procedure can be repeated as needed.
