(Sculptra with Threads)
There has been an increasing demand for achieving noninvasive skin lifting and tightening around aging knees (knee-dewrinkling) and elbows, and plastic surgery used to be the only option for body contouring and tightening. There are now many treatment options for tightening the face, hands, necks, and decollete with non-invasive injectables. Sagging elbows and knees, often ignored, can show visible signs of aging and naturally has looser skin. Our knee joints are often exposed to sun damage and frequent movement causes skin laxity and aging.
There are now many non-surgical ways to tighten crepey skin on the face and body. Collagen stimulators such as Sculptra and PDO Threads can be used to correct those wrinkles by restoring volume and building collagen. Although Sculptra is mainly used in the face for facial rejuvenation, it can be injected in other areas such as the knees to smooth out the wrinkles and crepey skin in that area. At Style Aesthetics, we can correct the wrinkling in the knees and when we combine Sculptra Aesthetic with PDO Threads. Together, the results will create a more youthful look that you’ve been wanting.
What is Sculptra and how does it work?
Collagen is a main component in keeping your skin looking smooth like it did when you were carefree and young. However, as we grow older, our natural production of collagen decreases and wrinkles begin to form. Some go to extreme lengths to combat this process, but with Sculptra, you can gracefully restore that skin of earlier years.
Sculptra is a cosmetic filler, made of poly-L-lactic (PLLA) acid that is injected into the skin, and works to stimulate the production of collagen. Many have been pleased with the results of Sculptra as it restores facial volume and provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, and can reduce the appearance of the laxity around the knees and elbows that has developed over time.
What are PDO Threads and how does it work?
PDO Threads is a non-surgical procedure that immediately lifts sagging skin with virtually no pain, side effects, or recovery time. The threads gently stimulate your skin to produce collagen in order to fight the effects of age and gravity. PDO Threads is a great addition to many aesthetic treatments and can be applied to lift the skin around the knees, eyebrows and cheeks, reduce nasolabial and marionette lines, contour the jawline, lift a saggy butt, and even remove wrinkles on the neck and chest!
Is the Knee-Dewrinkling treatment right for me?
The sagging skin on our knees are often ignored and can show visible signs of aging. We may not think about it, but the skin over the knees are often exposed to sun damage. We move our joints frequently everyday and as this occurs it causes skin laxity and shows signs of aging. If you are looking for a way to tighten the skin around the knees, then our Knee-Dewrinkling treatment with Sculptra and PDO Threads may be for you.
What to Expect
Before your procedure
During your consultation we will discuss your aesthetic goals and desired results, and work together on the best way to achieve those results. Please be prepared to discuss your medical history, including any medications you are currently taking as well as allergies and your surgical history. From there, we will be able to make the best recommendations for the appropriate amount of Sculptra or PDO threads needed (and the number of treatment sessions) to achieve the best results. Our consultations are completely confidential.
During your treatment
Once we determine during your consultation that you are a candidate for Knee-Dewrinkling procedure, we can proceed with treatment. Your comfort during treatment is our top priority and we may apply a topical anesthetic or numbing agent to help minimize any discomfort. Once the anesthetic takes effect, your provider will begin using the Sculptra or PDO Threads to treat the identified, targeted areas. Your appointment will usually take anywhere between 60-90 minutes.
After your treatment
After your treatment, you are welcome to resume your everyday activities. Every patient is unique. There may be some discomfort or bruising following the procedure, but there is no “recovery time” needed after treatment compared to traditional surgery. Any bruising that occurs should resolve within a few weeks. The results achieved by Sculptra for your Knee-Dewrinkling treatment are natural looking and appear gradually over a few weeks time. Your results can last up to 2 years or longer in some cases.
What results can I expect from the Knee-Dewrinkling treatment at Style Aesthetics?
The number of treatments depends on the patient and their areas of concern, but two – four treatments is common. Each session will continue to build the collagen in your skin and treat the wrinkling that has occured, and you come closer to the youthful fullness with each treatment. After the completion of the Knee-Dewrinkling treatment with Sculptra and PDO threads, your body will absorb the product and will continue to stimulate the dermis to promote collagen growth in the subsequent weeks to come.
