Non Invasive Knee Wrinkle Treatment
You’ve probably heard about aesthetic treatments for just about everything – the face, neck, butt, and so on. Now, add knees to the list!
The knees are frequently forgotten when it comes to aesthetic treatments, but like other regions of your body, they might benefit from some tender loving care.
Taking Care of Your Knees
Similar to our face and neck, it is important to take preventative measures to protect our knees. Avoiding the sun and using sunscreen on the knees will prevent sun damage that causes the skin to age faster. Keeping the skin on and around the knees moisturized and using retinol products on the area also helps keep the skin more plump and youthful-looking.
Non-Invasive Knee Treatments
Most people don’t focus on their knees until the skin begins to sag and form wrinkles. Due to the position of your knees and gravity, the skin on and around the knee is more prone to sagging, wrinkling, and drooping. However, some people may have loose skin or pockets of fat above the knee due to genetic predisposition, weight gain or subsequent weight loss, or a natural aging process. Regardless of the cause or reason you don’t like how your knees look, at Essential Aesthetics, we offer a variety of treatments that can help!
Kybella is an injectable composed of deoxycholic acid. It can be injected into the knees to break up and dissolve the fat cells above the knee. The body’s natural healing process stimulates collagen production in the knee area, which also May help in subtle skin tightening.
Coolsculpting is a noninvasive fat-freezing procedure that involves cryolipolysis. It can be applied on the knees to target fat cells, permanently destroying the fat cells above the knee and enhancing the contour of your legs.
Microneedling combined with radiofrequency not only stimulates collagen and elastin fiber rejuvenation through the wound healing process but also results in the overall tightening of the skin above the knee.
Diluted Sculptra, a dermal filler made of bio-stimulating poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), can be injected into the wrinkles and loose skin of the knees to improve their skin quality and contour.
Similar to how threads can be used to lift the eyebrows and jawline, they can also lift the skin on the knees. Threads also stimulate long-term collagen production, so your knees will always look better.
Similar to the wrinkles on our faces, the wrinkles on the knees can also be treated with tretinoin, more famously known as Retin-A. This gold standard for anti-aging typically takes about eight weeks to 6 months of treatment to see a noticeable improvement in the skin. Tretinoin therapy also works synergistically with any of the treatments mentioned above.
How long do treatments for knee wrinkles last?
Depending on the treatment, knee treatments can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years. As with most procedures, your knees will require maintenance sessions. (Thenewspocket.com)
