The first step in any aesthetic journey is an expert consultation. This is very important as it helps to properly evaluate the quality of the skin, the degree of sagging, loss of collagen and elasticity and determine which treatment or a combination of treatments will be the best.
It is important to know that there is no particular procedure or device that is explicitly approved for use on the knees, and thus medical professionals use many things off-label in this area to improve skin laxity and create a more youthful appearance by utilizing products and or procedures that are approved but on other parts of the body, most commonly the face.
Dr. Avaliani has expertly used the following treatments in her NYC practice over many years to achieve great outcomes for the saggy knee concern.
The procedure involves injecting Sculptra under the skin around the knee area. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates collagen production over time. As collagen increases, the skin becomes firmer and tighter, potentially reducing the appearance of sagging skin around the knees.
PDO Threads Activation and Collagen Production
The threads mechanically lift and tighten the skin, while also stimulating the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that provides structure and firmness to the skin, so its increased production can help improve skin texture and elasticity.
Renuva is a proprietary injectable product made from an allograft adipose matrix. It is used to address volume loss, improve contour, and enhance the appearance of various areas, such as the face, hands, and body. The product contains processed donor tissue that is intended to stimulate collagen production and improve the overall appearance of the treated area The results are gradual and occasionally a few treatment sessions are recommended.
Genius RF Microneedling
Genius RF Microneedling uses fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. Simultaneously, RF energy is delivered into the deeper layers of the skin. This combination stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin, but the full results develop gradually over several weeks to months as collagen production increases. This can lead to firmer and more rejuvenated skin on the knees.
Ultherapy or HIFU
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. While HIFU is most commonly used for facial skin tightening and lifting, it can also be applied to other areas of the body, including the knees, to address saggy or loose skin. The full benefits of HIFU for saggy knee skin become more apparent over several weeks to months as the new collagen is produced. This leads to improved skin tightness and texture in the treated area.
