Aging and weight changes affect almost every part of your body. Some of these areas, such as the upper arms, can be difficult to tone and tighten. Even if you increase muscle mass, the skin may not have enough elasticity to maintain a smooth appearance over the area. If you notice loose skin and fat on the backside of your upper arms, arm tightening with PDO threads may be a good solution.
The Advantages of Arm Tightening with PDO Threads
Arm tightening with PDO threads, also known as the feather lift, is an excellent, minimally-invasive alternative to a traditional arm lift. With this option, there are multiple advantages such as little downtime, no visible side effects, no need for anesthesia, and a higher degree of precision.
Candidates for Arm Tightening with PDO Threads
Those who wish to rejuvenate and/or lift their skin, increase their skin volume, and smooth out their wrinkles may be eligible for this procedure. The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for arm tightening with PDO threads is to schedule a consultation so we can evaluate the skin and fat on your upper arms.
How Arm Tightening with PDO Threads Works
For arm tightening, fine surgical sutures are inserted through absorbable polydioxanone thread, which is then inserted into the skin to lift and support it. Your body begins to develop new collagen and fibrous tissue shortly after the PDO threads are inserted into the upper arm area. The result is a firmer, younger appearance. This procedure can also be supplemented with other therapies such as laser skin treatment and injectables for a fully revitalized appearance. Results tend to last from six months to a full year, after which a sequence of follow-up treatments can help you maintain the optimal effects.
