Over time, gravity and other factors can have negative impacts on the skin of the face. Facial volume is often lost and the skin begins to sag. This can happen around the neck, jowls, cheeks, and eyebrows. A PDO Threadlift is a minimally-invasive and non-surgical way to lift the skin, leaving you looking rejuvenated and younger.
How Does a PDO Threadlift Work?
A PDO Threadlift uses absorbable sutures to lift the skin. Before beginning, the area is thoroughly cleansed and numbed. It will also be marked to ensure accurate placement of the threads. A small and hollow needle is used to put the threads underneath the skin, where they can help to support sagging skin. Injections are used rather than incisions or cuts, meaning you have no scarring. The needle is removed as soon as the skin is in the desired place. The PDO threads then stay underneath the skin. The length and number of the sutures used will be customized to best suit your needs.
You will see immediate results after your treatment. The improvements will look even better in a week or two when the mild swelling has gone down. As a bonus, this treatment will stimulate your body to create new collagen. This helps to further lift and tighten your skin. Down the line, as the sutures are absorbed and sagging may begin again, more sutures can be placed to maintain your results. If you decide you want a facelift or other surgery later, the PDO Threadlift will not be an issue because the sutures will be absorbed.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a PDO Threadlift?
This treatment is ideal for many people. If you are in the beginning stages of facial sagging, the PDO Threadlift can nip it in the bud. It can also help people who have had plastic surgery in the past and have noticed the results are fading. This may be the ultimate treatment for those wanting to achieve dramatic results without the pain, expense, and downtime associated with surgery.
