We all want to look our best, and what better way to do that than with a PDO thread lift? It’s a non-surgical procedure that can give you the wrinkle-free, youthful face you’ve always wanted.
PDO thread lift is a procedure in which a surgeon uses a PDO thread to tighten the skin. This procedure has been around since the 1990s, but it is still a relatively new procedure to many people. A PDO thread lift is a minimally-invasive procedure safer than other alternatives such as cosmetic surgery or injectables.
The procedure has gained popularity in recent years because it can be performed on almost any part of the face and body, including the neck, cheeks, arms, abdomen, and back. The threads are placed underneath the skin where they are left until they dissolve over time (about six months).
But how exactly does this treatment work? What benefits does it offer? And most importantly: is it right for me? We’ll answer all your questions about this revolutionary treatment, so keep reading!
How Does PDO Thread Lift Works?
PDO Thread lift is one of the best options for non-surgical face lifting. It’s a cost-effective procedure with no downtime, making it ideal for busy people who want to look younger but need more time to go under the knife.
Unlike a surgical facelift, PDO thread lifts are a minimally invasive procedure that uses medical-grade threads to tighten facial skin. The lines are anchored under the skin and support the underlying tissues, stimulating collagen production and resulting in the skin’s natural tightening.
The procedure takes less than an hour and is performed in an accredited medical facility by a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist with experience performing facial aesthetic operations.
The doctor will make small incisions where they insert each PDO thread into your face using special microcannulas (tiny needles). Once inserted, the threads help to lift your facial muscles away from your jawline by supporting them from underneath as they heal over time.
The process is painless because it doesn’t involve cutting or stitching—if you’re worried about recovery time, know that most patients feel fine immediately after their treatment.
These absorbable sutures are made of Polydioxanone (PDO), a synthetic material often used in cardiac surgery.
These absorbable sutures are made of Polydioxanone (PDO), a synthetic material often used in cardiac surgery. PDO is also the thread used in other surgical procedures, dental procedures, and veterinary medicine.
The benefits of using this type of material include its ability to withstand high heat and tension without breaking down or losing shape and its biodegradability.
PDO threads have been utilized in a variety of medical applications because they are:
- They are biocompatible with soft tissues and can be easily removed once their job is done without leaving any foreign materials behind.
- Resistant to most chemicals found in bodily fluids (e.g., blood) — making them suitable for use inside the body where many harmful substances are present.
These PDO threads lift drooping brows, cheeks, and jowls when inserted under subdermal tissues.
The threads are inserted just under the skin by a trained aesthetician. The procedure takes about an hour from start to finish.
For best results, you should wait at least six weeks after having a thread lift before considering any other cosmetic surgery involving the face or neck area.
Thread lifts work by physically supporting sagging tissue and stimulating collagen production.
PDO threads work by physically supporting the sagging tissues, thereby preventing further drooping or sagging. In addition, the PDO threads stimulate collagen production in the skin. This increases your skin’s elasticity and helps to improve its overall appearance.
In short: The PDO thread does both! As it lifts, it also stimulates collagen production in your face, which leads to a more youthful appearance with time and better support for your facial muscles over time.
The PDOs have been around since 2008 and have been proven safe and effective in clinical trials worldwide. They’ve been used on hundreds of thousands of patients without any severe complications reported.
Benefits of PDO Thread Lift
PDO is quick, safe, and effective.
PDO Thread Lift is a non-surgical procedure and does not require any downtime. PDO threads are FDA-approved, safe, effective, and long-lasting. They’re also painless, quick to perform, and very affordable.
PDO is an alternative to painful injections and surgery.
PDO is a non-surgical procedure. Since PDO is an alternative to painful injections and surgery, you can expect a more natural look from this treatment. The threads are inserted into the skin using a small needle, so no incisions are made in your face.
This means there will be less swelling or bruising after receiving PDO thread lift treatment and no downtime. The results of your PDO thread lift treatment may last two years or longer, depending on how quickly your body heals itself after the procedure.
PDO reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and crowfeet.
If your only experience with cosmetic procedures is injections of Botox, you may have heard that the results are temporary—and that’s true for most patients. But PDO threads can be effective for three to six months, depending on your skin and the size of the treatment area. For many people, that’s enough time to see a noticeable difference in their appearance.
But what exactly is causing wrinkles and fine lines? As you age or if you’re stressed out or dehydrated, collagen production slows down. Your body also produces less hyaluronic acid—a substance needed to keep skin hydrated and plump—which can cause sagging on your face and around other areas (like your jowls).
In addition to these factors, UV rays from the sun break down elastin fibers in the middle layer of skin called the dermis; this causes further loss of elasticity that leads to wrinkles over time.
PDO thread lifts address all these issues by raising droopy tissues and restoring volume, so they look fresh again! It works by using multiple needles full of polydioxanone (PDO) thread which are inserted into specific points under each eye socket while they’re open during surgery; these threads lift sagging tissue when pulled upward at intervals by an instrument called an elevator wand, so they stay lifted even after surgery ends.
PDO treatments are easy and painless.
PDO thread lifts are the most gentle and effective skin-tightening procedures available. These treatments have been shown to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging and restore a youthful appearance. Unlike other modalities that require treatment with needles or injections (such as Botox), PDO thread lifts require no pain or downtime. Since you do not need to remove makeup or apply sunscreen before treatment (which can cause bruising), your skin will look better than ever after each session!
You can have younger-looking skin without surgery.
PDO threads are a safe alternative to painful injections and surgery, as they:
- Stimulate collagen production under the skin for a naturally youthful look.
- They are clinically proven to lift firm, sagging skin, resulting in younger-looking skin without surgery.
To summarize, PDO Thread Lift is quick, safe, and effective. Most patients see an improvement in their skin two weeks after treatment with no downtime. It’s a great alternative to painful injections and surgery that can give you the younger-looking skin you’ve always wanted.
