Aging is a gradual process, but the appearance of sagging skin can still catch us by surprise. Once we notice facial laxity, our initial instinct may be to consider facelift surgery, but what if there was another way? At Posh, we offer PDO Thread Lifts and Potenza™ RF Microneedling to treat saggy skin. These minimally invasive treatments offer temporary but impressive results that will help you feel younger and more radiant without the need for surgery.

What Causes Sagging Skin?
Sagging skin naturally develops over time as our bodies produce less collagen and elastin. These major compounds are responsible for the firmness and tightness of our skin and can decline in quantity after age 30. Once the aging process has started, we can do nothing to reverse it. However, preventative measures can be taken to decrease the rate of aging, and skin can be tightened after it has begun to sag.
How Is Sagging Skin Addressed?
PDO Thread Lifts are perfect for those who want tighter skin but aren’t crazy about the idea of having surgery. The PDO process involves placing the threads just below the skin. When placed under the epidermis, the thread cones instantly tighten and smooth, giving your skin a natural lift. The sutures safely dissolve over 18 months, stimulating natural collagen production and offering long-term results.
Potenza™ RF Microneedling works by creating micro-injuries on your skin. These injuries trigger your body’s natural healing process and encourage it to regenerate new collagen and elastin. Unlike other similar treatments, this process can be performed on all skin types, anywhere on the body. The entire process can typically be done in under an hour, but treatment time may vary depending on your targetted area(s).
What Can I Expect?
Collagen production will continue and enhance the look of your skin well after the threads dissolve over the next few months after placement. Recovery is minimal after a PDO Thread Lifts procedure. In most cases, you can expect to return to work and most normal activities one day after the procedure with only minor discomfort.
With Potenza™ RF Microneedling, you can experience gradual improvements over the course of the next 4-6 weeks. The best results can usually be seen at the 12-week month. The number of sessions you have will play a big role in how soon you see results and how long these results will last.
