If you have loose and hanging skin above and on your knees, you may feel uncomfortable wearing skirts or shorts. This is often a problem that people deal with as they get older. It is also a problem that individuals who at one time were overweight deal with. Thankfully, there are a variety of options that are available to help individuals in this situation. We at Old Town Med Spa would like to tell you about the options that are available for non-surgical knee tightening.
What is Non-Surgical Knee Tightening?
This procedure is a treatment designed to promote collagen growth in the knees and diminish the appearance of sagging skin. Collage is a key protein created by your skin to maintain its structural integrity; over time and the aging process, the body naturally produces less and less of this substance.
How Does It Work?
The process of non-surgical knee tightening entails the careful insertion of tiny polydioxanone threads under the skin to anchor it in place while the body’s own mechanisms work to tighten the region. These threads absorb into the skin naturally in the course of six months. This procedure is performed using local anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure with no established downtime. The ideal candidate for this option will harbor realistic expectations, and a consultation with us will help determine if you are eligible to receive this treatment.
