MedSPA VIP offers a variety of aesthetic procedures that help lift sagging or loose skin and restore a youthful appearance.

PDO (Polydioxanone) Threads

PDO (Polydioxanone) threads lift and contour the body by providing support and structure to sagging or loose skin. PDO thread lifting is a minimally invasive procedure that can produce noticeable results immediately with minimal downtime. The threads are inserted into the subcutaneous tissue using a needle or cannula and create a mesh-like structure that supports soft tissues. This procedure can be used to treat conditions such as loose or sagging skin, cellulite, and stretch marks.

Some PDO threads have tiny barbs or hooks that attach to tissue and create tension for an immediate lifting effect. Over time, your body dissolves the PDO material stimulating production of collagen and elastin. These help to maintain the lifting and further improve the skin’s texture and elasticity. PDO threads can be used in various parts of the body, including the face, neck, arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are often used for lifting of the skin by adding volume to the areas of the face where they are injected. When fillers are injected, the overlying skin will drape over this added volume creating a lifting effect that can help to smooth out the appearance of sagging skin.

Additionally, some types of dermal fillers can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are natural substances in the skin that help to support its structure and elasticity. By increasing the production of these substances, fillers can help to improve the overall texture and firmness of the skin, which can also contribute to a lifting effect.

It’s important to note that the lifting effect of dermal fillers is temporary, and the results will gradually fade over time as the filler is metabolized by the body. The longevity of the lifting effect will depend on the type of filler used and the your individual skin metabolism.

Focused Ultrasound

Focused ultrasound can cause lifting of skin through a non-invasive cosmetic procedure known as High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). During a HIFU treatment, a high-intensity ultrasound beam is focused on a specific area beneath the skin, causing heat also known as thermal coagulation points or “microthermal zones.” These zones trigger a natural healing response, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins for skin firmness and elasticity.

Over time, as the collagen and elastin fibers rebuild and regenerate, the skin becomes tighter, firmer, and lifted. This process can take several weeks to months, and the results can last for up to two years.

HIFU technology has been used successfully for facial lifting, brow lifting, and neck lifting, among other cosmetic applications, with minimal side effects and downtime.
