Many women come to Re:treat Medispa looking for effective treatment for their loose or sagging skin on their cheeks, brow, jawline, neck, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, arms, thighs or abdomen. In most cases, loose, sagging skin on can occur as a result of ageing or weight loss, but for some people, it can be genetic. The main factor that contributes to the sagging of our skin is a loss of elasticity in the skin and the emergence of the thin bands of muscle in the neck called the platysmal bands. These become more prominent as we age, but for those who are genetically predisposed to sagging skin, it can occur much earlier in life.
What is PDO Therapy?
For those patients looking for an effective treatment for their loose or sagging skin, we recommend PDO therapy. PDO therapy is an effective, non-surgical cosmetic technique that can lift and tighten sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. The procedure involves using small needles to implant fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads into the subcutaneous layer of the skin. These threads will remain implanted in the skin for six months and they cause micro-injuries which can stimulate collagen synthesis and tissue contraction. The threads are finally absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place and making your skin look more tone.
PDO thread therapy can be used on the cheeks, brow, jawline, neck, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, arms, thighs and abdomen and the lifting effect can last between 2-3 years.
PDO Therapy Is a Quick and Effective Procedure
PDO therapy can be carried out by a Re:treat Medispa technician using local anaesthetic. And within an hour, depending on the treatment area, the procedure will be completed. Side effects are minimal but may include swelling and bruising that lasts 2-3 days, and patients can continue with normal activities immediately after. Prices for PDO therapy starts from £500 and a consultation is required before the treatment can be performed.
If you are interested in PDO therapy for your loose, sagging skin, it is important to choose a fully-qualified professional who will be able to assess your case individually and provide you with the advice, care and follow-up consultations needed.
