Plastic surgery used to be the only option for body contouring and tightening. Though it’s great to have that option, not all of us are quite ready to go under the knife. So what to do when your jowels begin to sag? Your once shapely arms start to jiggle and get crepey? And let’s not even talk about that skin around your knees that immediately shows your age….
Great news! There are now many new non-surgical ways to tighten crepey skin on the face and body. We have found new uses for Sculptra Aesthetic (an injectable poly-L-lactic acid that is typically injected into the face to restore facial volume) for the body, using it to build collagen and eliminate sagginess and wrinkles. It can be injected into the arms to tighten the skin, as well as the chest.
We also love PDO Threads, the non-surgical procedure that immediately lifts sagging skin with virtually no pain, side effects, or recovery time. The threads gently stimulate your skin in order to fight the effects of age and gravity. It can be applied to lift skin around the eyebrows and cheeks, reduce nasolabial and marionette lines, contour the jawline, minimize roundness in the face, diminish submental fullness, build lips and lip lines, and even remove wrinkles on the neck and chest!
Both of these treatments can last 18-24 months. Patient results do vary.
