When the term skin laxity is used within a treatment, it means that the procedure is designed to tighten just the skin. Skin laxity refers to the degree of elasticity and firmness that the skin has; when we’re younger, our skin is firmer and better able to bounce back (thanks, collagen and elastin). However, as we age, collagen and elastin production begins to slow down, causing skin laxity to increase.
Tighten lax skin around the cheeks, jowls, and neck to give you a firmer, more youthful appearance. Firm up lax skin around the abdomen area to create a smoother, tighter waistline. At About Face, we have two main options for skin tightening: PDO threads and/or Venus RF skin tightening.
The news and social media are buzzing with the wild images and impressive results of PDO Threads. Polydioxanone sutures are dissolvable collagen threads that can be placed in nearly any body part. Crepey skin, hanging jowls, and loose necks now have a wonderful, non-surgical fix that takes just minutes… but the collagen it builds lasts months.
“Wow — PDO Treads are AMAZING! Say goodbye to my chipmunk jowls. No more storage of nuts in these cheeks. My face is super tight and I love it.”
