If you have loose and hanging skin above and on your knees, you may feel uncomfortable wearing skirts or shorts. This is often a problem that people deal with as they get older. It is also a problem that individuals who at one time were overweight deal with. Thankfully, there are a variety of options that are available to help individuals in this situation. We at Old Town Med Spa would like to tell you about the options that are available for non-surgical knee tightening.
What is Non-Surgical Knee Tightening?
This procedure is a treatment designed to promote collagen growth in the knees and diminish the appearance of sagging skin. Collage is a key protein created by your skin to maintain its structural integrity; over time and the aging process, the body naturally produces less and less of this substance.
How Does It Work?
The process of non-surgical knee tightening entails the careful insertion of tiny polydioxanone threads under the skin to anchor it in place while the body’s own mechanisms work to tighten the region. These threads absorb into the skin naturally in the course of six months. This procedure is performed using local anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure with no established downtime. The ideal candidate for this option will harbor realistic expectations, and a consultation with us will help determine if you are eligible to receive this treatment.

Regularly exfoliating your skin should be a part of your normal skin care routine. Not only do you want to exfoliate your skin at home using a gentle scrub, but you should have your skin professionally exfoliated on a regular basis. Dermaplaning is a great option for professional skin exfoliation. In addition to getting rid of dead skin cells, it also removes unwanted facial hair. Here are some things that you should know about dermaplaning at Old Town Med Spa.
What does the dermaplaning treatment involve? The first step is getting you comfortable in a reclined position. This will allow our skin care professionals to access your facial skin in a comfortable way. Your skin will then be gently cleansed. After allowing your face to dry, the individual performing the treatment is going to use a surgical scalpel to gently scrape away dead skin cells and to remove your facial hair. After the treatment, a moisturizer will be applied to your skin.
While you may love the idea of not having facial hair, you may wonder if shaving it off is really a good idea. You have likely heard people say that shaving off peach fuzz and facial hair will make the hair grow back thicker and darker. This is simply not true. As the hair grows back, it is likely going to feel thicker. This has to do with the way that the hair was cut. However, when it grows out, it is going to feel and look just like it did before you had a dermaplaning treatment. There’s no risk of starting on a path that makes your facial hair thick and noticeable.
After a dermaplaning session, you are going to notice that your skin is much more soft and smooth. Because the dead skin cells have been removed, your skin care products are going to be more effective. This is going to lead to a variety of benefits, including having skin that is more hydrated. And because the hair has been removed, you are going to notice that your makeup applies a lot easier and looks better.
Is dermaplaning is the right option for your skin? The most likely answer to that question is yes. There are very few things that would disqualify a person from being a good candidate for dermaplaning. If you have an inflamed acne breakout at this time, you will need to wait until it clears up before having the treatment performed. This treatment is great for individuals who have all skin types and skin colors. Also, it is great for women who are pregnant or for those who do not qualify or want to use treatments that involve the use of chemicals.
