Saggy, wrinkly knees are one of the biggest indicators of age.
The legs include the outer, inner thighs, inner knees, calves and ankles. Problems in these areas usually involve lax skin and wrinkling or localized fat deposits with are commonly called saddle bags. The loose skin can now be addressed with our new treatment.
Recent developments in technology have made possible the selective and precise delivery of energy to the deep dermis and sub-dermal layers of skin while protecting the epidermis.
Controlled collagen heating produces immediate collagen contraction, and subsequent repair and remodeling of this deep collagen produces continuing effect over the next several months.
Kninkles (noun): Wrinkles which surround a knee. A blend of the words ‘knee’ and ‘wrinkles’.
Are you suffering from knee wrinkles, or kninkles as they nicknamed?
‘You need some redundant skin around your knee or you wouldn’t be able to bend it,’ explains plastic surgeon Rajiv Grover. ‘That’s fine when you’re younger and your skin is like Lycra, with lots of elasticity, but as you get older, your skin can start to look loose.’
The good news is that there are ways you can minimize the damage. Dermatone XtraFIRM® treatment delivers energy into the dermal tissue,’ explains Dr. Bowler. ‘This heats the tissue, causing the collagen to tighten and, over time, to produce more collagen.’
Over time, the heat stimulates the fibroblasts, which will manufacture new fibers of elastin and collagen (neo-collagenesis). Meanwhile, the kickback of heat-induced shrinkage of collagen fibers is immediate, giving visible and better firmness. The retraction is then continued over time.
