Sagging skin is one of the most common and noticeable signs of skin aging. Hollows under the eyes, sagging jowls, and wrinkles can leave you looking older than you actually feel. Many people mistakenly believe that the only way to address sagging skin is to undergo a surgical facelift. Fortunately, nothing could be farther from the truth. At SkinMD Seattle, we can provide you with a completely nonsurgical facelift that requires very little downtime but still offer significant results that rival a facelift procedure.
What are PDO Threads?
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are absorbable sutures that can be inserted into key areas of the face to lift and tighten the skin, improve the contour of the cheeks and jawline and improve the overall elasticity of your skin. Commonly called the nonsurgical facelift, a PDO thread lift can provide you with dramatic results that last as long as two years.
The Benefits of a PDO Thread Lift
Choosing a nonsurgical facelift with PDO threads comes with many advantages as opposed to surgery, including the following:
• Quick treatment time
• Little to no downtime
• Encourages collagen production
While a surgical facelift comes with anesthesia, considerable risks and extensive downtime, a PDO thread lift is safe for almost any patient in generally good health. As an added benefit, you won’t have to worry about spending weeks in recovery; most people can get right back to their usual routine within a few days of their treatment.
What to Expect with PDO Threads
This nonsurgical facelift can be completed in as little as 30 minutes. Depending on your specific needs, the threads can be used to lift the face, neck or both. You can expect to see results immediately following your treatment. However, since the PDO thread lift also boosts collagen production, you will likely see your results continue to improve over the next few months. Once the threads have been inserted, you won’t have to get them taken out. Instead, they will be absorbed by your body within four to six weeks of your treatment session.
