PDO Mono Thread Lifting treatment
As we age, our skin loses its youthful appearance, and signs of aging become more and more obvious. Fine facial lines and sagging skin are just two aging indicators, but they are important areas to address because these early signs of aging indicate a breakdown of the skin’s tissues. The face and neck areas are common areas of concern, but a thread lift procedure can also be used to address other areas of concern such as sagging buttocks, and wrinkly knees and elbows.
An introduction to PDO Mono Threads
