A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that helps tighten a person’s skin. Without the need for big incisions, unlike most facelift procedures, PDO thread lifting uses small needles to insert fine threads under the skin. These PDO threads are especially designed to anchor the sagging skin and lift it upwards. The threads also stimulate collagen production, which further diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
There Are Several Types Of Threads Used To Accomplish The Procedure:
- Smooth threads for superficial wrinkles and lines
- Volumizing threads for defining lip borders and diminishing deep wrinkles or folds, such as smile lines
- Lift threads that contain small barbs to lift the skin up and returns it to its original natural position
Benefits Of PDO Threadlift:
If you are noticing signs of aging around your eyes, lips, or other areas of the face, or if you are seeking an alternative to the surgical facelift, PDO thread lifting may be an appropriate treatment option for you. Benefits of PDO thread lifting may include:
- Lifted and tightened skin
- Increased collagen production
- Improved overall appearance of skin
- No incisions required
- Minimal downtime
Frequently Asked Questions
Is There Anything I Need To Do To Prepare For PDO Threadlift Treatment?
The most important part of preparing for the PDO Threadlift treatment is to stop taking any medications and supplements that thin the blood as these may cause bruising and prolong healing such as ginko, omega fish oil, vitamin E, and alcohol. Other than that, there is no preparation for the PDO Threadlift.
What Should We Expect During The PDO Threadlift Treatment?
We use Nova threads, the latest most advanced form of PDO threads on the market. When getting PDO Threadlift, your trained practitioner makes a small opening through which needles with threads are inserted. The needle is then removed, and the thread is left suspended in place to lift the skin.
When the threads are inserted, they cause the body to produce inflammation, which then signals the body to boost collagen production. This is how the targeted areas increase facial volume.
When Will I See The Results From My PDO Threadlift?
Results are immediately noticeable to you and continue to increase over the next few months as the body fully absorbs the threads. These results typically last between six months and one year.
What Is PDO Thread Lift Recovery Like?
After treatment, there may be bruising. Your face may also be sore and swollen for the first three to five days post-procedure. The skin may appear to have slight indents. This typically goes away within the first few days. Tightness of the face may be felt for about two weeks after the procedure. To help the healing we recommend you avoid certain activities such as facial massages, extractions, and intense workouts for 2-4 weeks.
What Areas Can You Treat With The PDO Threadlift?
- Nasolabial Fold
- Around the mouth
How Long Do PDO Thread Lift Results Last?
The PDO threads dissolve after six to nine months, but their effects can last up to two years, thanks to the production of collagen. Regular maintenance every 1-2 years is recommended for best results.
