PDO Lip Thread Lift At SkinMD Seattle
We are loving the PDO thread lifting procedures!
The PDO Thread Lift is a non-surgical, no-scar treatment that can be used in various areas of the face and body to offer different treatment objectives. It has been a hot favorite in Europe and the East for several years and is now increasing in popularity in the United States. It is available at SkinMD and our patients getting treatments since we began offering it have been thrilled with their results.
The PDO threads are reabsorbed and dissolved over a period of 6-8 months, however due to the stimulation of collagen, the treatment shows prolonged rejuvenation effects. Maximum collagen stimulation and a cell generation boost induced by the dissolving thread, drastically slow down the aging process.
During the procedure, which only Dr. Balogun performs, dissolvable polydioxanone (PDO) threads are injected deep underneath the surface of the skin, using different lengths of thin acupuncture-like needles. The strategic placement, type and length of the thread will influence the resulting effect. PDO Threads can achieve a lifting effect; a firming and tightening effect; or can be used to improve scars, cellulite, stretch marks and thin aging skin.
The placements of threads are guided by the natural tension lines of the skin. Once in place, they act as a scaffold, lifting loose and sagging skin. The procedure also stimulates the production of collagen, and further creates a frame for the collagen to attach to, showing effects similar to that of a surgical face-lift, without the downtime and potential surgical risks.
Continued stimulation of blood supply to the treated area facilitates stimulation of new collagen and elastin production. This means that even after just a few days, the treated area looks brighter and healthier. Visibly, significant results are evident after approximately 3 to 4 weeks. As the lifting threads are dissolvable, they will last for up to 6 months, but with the continued collagen stimulation, the lifting and smoothing effect of this treatment can last for a period of up to 2 years.
