Are you interested in a non-surgical treatment that provides results similar to a facelift without the recovery period or lengthy surgical period?

Using these PDO threads, we will lift sagging skin on the face and neck, improve cheek shape and contour, get rid of double chin, improve jawline contour, as well as reduce facial wrinkles on the forehead, under eyes, and around lips.

What are PDO threads?
PDO threads are a synthetic absorbable surgical suture that is inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin and instantly tones and tightens the skin in the treated area. PDO lifting threads also stimulate new collagen production thereby enabling restoration of lost collagen. Four to six months after the PDO threads have been implanted, they will be absorbed by the body, leaving behind the new collagen. There are no incisions or cuts involved with PDO thread lifting, the threads are injected into the treatment area using a fine needle. Most patients see an immediate improvement in the treated area and results can last for two years or longer. In order to achieve optimal results, SkinMD Seattle recommends the on-going use of medically directed skin care formulations and skin supporting treatments following your PDO thread lifting procedure.
What can a complete non-surgical facelift treat?

What can I expect after treatment?
You may experience some temporary side effects, including mild swelling, redness, and/or bruising in the treated area. These side effects typically subside on their own within a few days of your treatment session. Many patients will experience a smoothing of wrinkles and fine lines, improvement in facial volume, lifting of loose and sagging skin, and an improvement in skin tone within four to six weeks of their treatment session. With proper treatment, the result of your complete non-surgical facelift can last for up to two years.
