Over time, the aging process causes your face to lose collagen, fat, bone mass and volume. Since these components are responsible for giving your face a youthful appearance, the aging process can make you look much older than you feel. Gravity also causes the skin on your face to become loose and droop down, and although there is no way to stop the natural aging process, the PDO thread lift can help you fight back against the unwanted effects. It is oftentimes referred to as a non-surgical facelift because of the incredible results it can produce.
How the PDO Thread Lift Works
This procedure is both quick and easy. The PDO thread lift is unique because it uses special threads to improve the appearance of your face. During this non-surgical facelift procedure, fine threads are used to lift the neck, jowls and cheeks. The threads are made from polydioxanone, which is the material used for surgical stitches.
Since this material is biodegradable and biocompatible, it doesn’t cause major discomfort, and over time, the threads will dissolve. It can take multiple months for the threads to dissolve, and during this time, they’ll cause new collagen bands to form under the skin.
What About the Results?
The long wait time to see the results is due to the fact that new bands of collagen take multiple months to form. However, once the new collagen forms, the results can last for quite a long time.
The PDO threads are placed in an interlaced pattern and used to lift the skin. The threads can deliver an immediate lift, and they’re also effective for tightening the skin.
By stimulating the production of new collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin, the PDO threads strengthen, smooth and thicken the skin. They also improve the elasticity of your skin and give you a more youthful appearance.
Why Consider a Non-Surgical Facelift?
Many patients want to look younger, but they don’t want to undergo invasive surgery. With PDO threads, you can get a non-surgical facelift, and you don’t have to deal with the extensive downtime and recovery required for surgery.
A non-surgical facelift with PDO threads can enhance your cheeks, reduce fine lines, lift sagging skin and smooth the wrinkles around your eyes.
