Our skin begins to sag and loses elasticity as part of the natural aging process. PDO Thread Lift is a fast and relatively pain-free procedure with immediate results for the face and can safely be used in other areas of the body. They tighten the skin by contracting fat tissue, and once the threads are inserted, the skin looks rejuvenated and lifted. PDO Threads can subtly lift facial features while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. By creating support and repositioning the skin, improvement can be seen following the PDO Thread Lift procedure while results continue to improve as collagen and elastin are produced.
A PDO Thread lift uses small and dissolvable suture threads to lift and tighten the skin. By causing micro-injuries that trigger the body to produce collagen and elastin, these building blocks are left behind after the threads are absorbed by the body 6 to 8 months after they are inserted. The produced collagen will continue to benefit the skin over time, well after the threads are gone.
The results from a PDO Thread Lift continue to improve over time. You may see initial improvement in the skin, but because the threads invoke the body’s natural healing response, collagen and elastin are built over time and continue to improve the appearance in treated areas.
PDO Threads can be used to treat marionette lines, frown lines, hollowed under eyes, smile lines, jowls, sagging cheeks, jawline contouring, glabellar lines, and more by lifting and smoothing the skin to create a more youthful appearance.
Patients may experience bruising and swelling for at least two weeks following treatment. We advise that patients avoid strenuous workouts and sweating. We also recommend that patients sleep on the back for the duration of their recovery time.
Facelift surgery involves removing skin, creating extensive downtime and recovery with follow-up appointments. With PDO Threads, not only do they lift the skin, but they stimulate collagen around each thread, continually improving your results with lifted contours remaining in place for up to two years.
