If you are interested in a non-surgical way to tighten sagging skin and look years younger, consider the PDO threadlift. It is a very safe and highly effective way of instantly tightening the skin. The goal is to restore the shape the face naturally has when we are young.
How Does the PDO Threadlift Work?
The threads used in this treatment are made from a special material called polydioxanone (where the PDO comes from.) The PDO threads stand apart from other thread lifting options because they are absorbable, meaning they can be removed or reversed if desired. This material is considered very safe and has been used in surgery to help close wounds.
During the treatment, the threads are strategically placed in the face. While there, they encourage your body to create more collagen. The threads are fully absorbed by the body within months, but the results from the treatment can last for years. This is because the threads gave your face structure and support while the new collagen was being formed.
What Areas of the Face Can Benefit From the PDO Threadlift?
This procedure can reverse the signs of aging all over the face. Having it done helps improve the appearance of:
- Forehead and brows
- Upper and lower cheeks
- Marionette lines (found on the corners of the mouth)
- Naso-labial folds (Lines from the nose to the mouth)
What to Expect with a PDO Threadlift
In order to have this treatment done, the first step is to have a consultation. This will allow us to determine if this is an appropriate option for you and develop a treatment plan. The areas receiving injections are numbed prior to beginning, and then the threads are placed. After the numbness has worn off, you will see practically immediate results. These improvements continue to develop in the following months as your body makes fresh collagen.
How long your session will take depends on the number and size of the areas being treated. Typically speaking, this procedure can be done in an hour or less. Afterward, you will be given aftercare instructions to help you get the best results possible. These instructions include things like avoiding direct sunlight and gently washing the treated area for at least two weeks after treatment.
