Are you struggling with loose, saggy skin? As frustrating as this skin concern can be, it’s only natural. After all, skin is subject to diminishing collagen levels, sinking fat stores, and gravity over the course of a lifetime. These factors cause the sagging skin that we’ve come to associate with the aging process.
Thankfully, we now have a solution for sagging skin in South Florida that doesn’t involve incisions and scarring. PDO threads are a non-surgical aesthetic treatment that lifts, tightens, and rejuvenates saggy skin.
What Are PDO Threads?
PDO threads, or polydioxanone absorbable threads, are FDA-approved threads that are injected into the skin to lift, tighten, or volumize, depending on the patient’s goals. Many different types of PDO threads are available, and Dr. Hermann in Tampa can help determine the best option for your needs.
How Do PDO Threads Tighten Saggy Skin?
When PDO threads are injected into the skin, they trigger new collagen production. Your skin will gradually absorb the threads in the months following the treatment. When they’re fully absorbed, they’ll be left behind by the new collagen support system, which gives the skin a tighter, more youthful appearance.
PDO threads are a unique aesthetic treatment in that they allow you to selectively lift areas of the skin, allowing for natural-looking results. Additionally, this treatment requires no more than one night off of your regular schedule.
Am I a Candidate For PDO Threads?
You may be a candidate for PDO threads to tighten saggy skin in you:
- Want to improve the appearance of sagging, mild to moderate wrinkles, fine lines, volume loss, or poor skin texture
- Don’t take blood thinners for at least 10 days before the treatment
- Haven’t had neurotoxins or dermal fillers in the past two weeks
