As you get older and signs of age begin to show, you might wish you could turn back time and see your younger face in the mirror again instead of wrinkles or sagging skin. But at the same time, you might not be ready for a major procedure like a facelift.
A PDO thread lift might be the perfect option for you if you’re looking for a non-surgical way to give your face a lift and help bring back your youthful looks again.
How does a PDO thread lift work?
A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery, designed to rejuvenate and lift sagging skin.
Before your treatment, your skin will be marked in the places the threads will be inserted. You will receive a local anesthetic, and then the PDO threads will be inserted.
PDO threads are attached to a long cannula (a blunt-tipped needle). The cannula will be pushed through the tissue beneath the skin until the thread has reached its final position. This process will be repeated with a number of threads. Each thread acts as an anchor as the skin is lifted upwards. The threads will then be massaged to ensure the tissue is smooth.
A PDO thread lift mechanically results in instant skin lifting. It also contracts fat tissue and promotes collagen production, which renews your skin at the cellular level. Your face is instantly lifted and tightened, resulting in fewer lines and wrinkles, and a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
What results and recovery time can I expect from a PDO thread lift?
The procedure only takes about an hour, and there is no downtime necessary. Recovery is minimal, although the puncture points of the threads will take a few weeks to heal. You may feel soreness or have some redness during that time.
The results of your PDO thread lift can be seen right away. The thicker threads (cog and screw threads) will need a bit longer before you see the full results. They are boosting collagen, and it takes your body some time to build the volume and transform the skin naturally. It will be about 2-3 months before the final results of these threads are fully visible.
Although the effects from a thread lift will be temporary and not as dramatic as a facelift, you will enjoy a markedly smoother, firmer, younger-looking face--all without a surgical procedure.
