Have you noticed changes in your skin elasticity and texture? As part of the aging process, you might notice sagging along your jawline or under your eyes. As we age, gravity begins to take its effects on our skin tone and physical characteristics creating jowls, folds, and an overall aging effect. Also, as part of the aging process, our face and neck often lose the fat that gives support to our defined features and face structures.
Fortunately, there are quick, effective and non-surgical options to turn back the aging process. A thread lift can help you eliminate the issues of sagging skin without any downtime and with minimal discomfort.
What is PDO Threading used for?
PDO Threading primary purpose is to tighten sagging skin, thereby giving you a more youthful appearance.
For the past 15 years, PDO threading has been used to treat a range of areas including:
- Marionette lines
- Naso-labial folds
- Upper and lower cheeks
PDO threading is not limited to the face; it can tighten other skin areas in your body such as on the abdomen, arms, and buttocks as well.
Where can I place threads?
PDO Threads can be placed in the forehead to lift the brows and also in the temple area to pull the skin and give the “foxy eyes” look. We also use threads in the cheeks to soften the smile lines especially as another option when patients don’t want to put filler in the area. We can also place threads in the lower face to lift and contour the jawline. A thread lift can also be placed in the neck but often requires multiple threads to get the best result. When it comes to the neck, depending on the severity of laxity in the skin, we may also recommend combination treatments such as Fibroblast or laser skin tightening procedures to get the best results.
How long do they last?
PDO Threads are placed under the skin using local anesthesia. They begin to breakdown and dissolve in the skin after 6 months. Results last approximately 1-2 years. The procedure is painless. Only mild discomfort during the treatment.
What Are the Benefits?
One of the most significant benefits of thread lift therapy is convenience and faster recovery. You don’t have to worry about the obstacles that surgery may present such as:
- Time off for recovery
- Risk of medical complications
- Potential scarring
- Need to arrange for travel and for post op care the day of surgery due to sedation
In the other hands, with a PDO Threads procedure, you can make your appointment, get treated, and return to work that same day. Unbelievable but it is true!
