Skin Secrets Cape Coral, FL
Cosmetic medical techniques have advanced greatly in recent years. Many aspects of facial aging can be addressed with safe and effective procedures that offer little downtime and natural-looking results. While wrinkles, brown spots and lost volume can be treated with existing procedures, until now there has been no minimally invasive way to lift the deeper layers of mid-facial skin, one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance.
PDO therapy is an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tighten sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production.
PDO therapy involves the implantation of fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads, similar to those used in medical suturing, into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small needles.
Loose or sagging skin on the neck can occur as a result of aging and weight loss, but for some is just a case of genetics. Caused by a loss of elasticity in the skin and the emergence of the thin bands of muscle in the neck called the platysmal bands, the issue becomes more prominent with old age, but for those genetically predisposed it can appear as early as the late twenties.
PDO therapy is an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. These threads remain implanted in the skin causing micro-injuries that stimulate collagen synthesis and tissue contraction. After six months, the threads will be absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place.
The procedures is usually carried out using local anesthetic , and takes between 45 and 60 minutes depending on the treatment area. Side effects are minimal but may include swelling and bruising that lasts 2-3 days, and patients can continue with normal activities immediately after.
PDO therapy can be used on the cheeks, brow, jawline, neck, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, arms, thighs and abdomen. The lifting effect is at its peak after 6 months when collagen has formed around the threads, and lasts between 2-3 years.
[Silhouette InstaLift®] has long-lasting effects. It also provides an immediate lift. I instantly noticed the lift in my mid-face and felt like it put my cheeks back where they once were.
