[ Sculpt, Lift, Erase ]
Living in the valley of the sun comes with some unique challenges for aging skin since the climate is so dry and sunny. One option that has become a popular choice to address the many signs of aging is PDO therapy.
A PDO thread lift is a new, revolutionary treatment that works to sculpt and lift the shape of the face. Temporary, medical-grade suture materials are used to lift and draw taut the skin of the face. PDO threads have been used for various medical applications; and when used cosmetically, it offers instant lifting and tightening of the skin.
Is the “Thread Lift” the New Face-Lift?
The thread lift does offer an excellent, minimally invasive alternative to face-lifts. Although the effects from a PDO thread lift are not as dramatic or long-lasting as a face-lift, it is an excellent choice for individuals who are not ready to go with the more aggressive and invasive face-lift. PDO thread lifts also help to stimulate collagen production which helps in the gradual reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does the PDO Thread Lift Work?
Researching the procedure will prepare you for your initial consultation, as well as, the need to know information on the treatment itself. The procedure involves threading slim, dissolvable sutures beneath your skin, which allows for the skin to be pulled tight. Painless, invisible barbs ensure that threads grip the underlying muscles and tissues in the area being treated when the thread is pulled tight.
After threads have been inserted, it triggers the body’s healing response. This stimulates collagen production, which can help fill gaps in sagging skin, restoring elasticity to the face.
Which Areas Can Be Treated with PDO Threads?
A PDO thread lift offers excellent results for different areas of the face that may need to be tightened. Some of the areas that may be treated with versatile PDO thread lifts include:
- Naso jugal folds
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Under eye area
The most commonly treated areas are the neck, lower face, and cheeks. It is also possible to choose to target a single area at once or target multiple areas for more dramatic results.
What are the Results of Thread Lifts?
Skin lifting and contouring results are seen immediately after PDO therapy. However, the final results of the thread lifts may not be seen for four to eight weeks after treatment, depending on your age and how fast your body produces new collagen. As the threads stimulate collagen production, fine lines and wrinkles are reduced and smoothed, leaving plumper, more youthful-looking skin.
Who is a Good Candidate for PDO Thread Lift?
Are you wanting to address and correct: skin laxity, haggard facial features, uneven pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles? If you answered yes, you are an excellent candidate for this treatment. It is particularly beneficial if you want results similar to a facelift without going the more expensive and invasive route of a traditional facelift.
How to Prep for a PDO Thread Lift Session?
While PDO treatment is non-invasive, there are a few precautionary measures to take before the procedure. A few things to avoid in the 24-48 hours before your procedure include:
• Vitamin E
• Saunas and steam rooms
• Omega-3 fish oil supplements
• High-intensity workouts
What Can Be Expected After the PDO Thread Lift?
After treatment, you will immediately see the tightening of your skin. The thread lift recovery time is fairly short, and you will not have many after-care requirements with the non-invasive treatment. However, it is recommended to avoid dental procedures within the first two weeks of recovery. Sleeping on your back for the first couple of weeks is also recommended to keep pressure off the sides of your face.
