What is PDO Threads?
Some people have a hard time when their looks start to change due to aging. Genetics, smoking, health conditions, sun damage, and excessive drinking can all help accelerate the aging process. A revolutionary new aesthetic treatment called a PDO thread lift may be helpful to lift and tighten the skin, resulting in a younger look. It mechanically lifts the skin, contracts fat tissue to tighten the skin, and then promotes collagen production to renew the skin at the cellular level. This process works together to enhance skin texture, eliminate wrinkles and fine lines, and make the skin more elastic.
The process only takes about 30 to 45 minutes, and there’s no down time from work necessary. There are different types and lengths of PDO threads available that differ in shape, tensile strength, quality, and cost of treatment. Depending on the specific area you want to be treated, the PDO thread lift is customized to your personal skin texture, skin type, and aesthetic goals. The amount of threads needed may vary depending on the area being treated and the results you hope to achieve. During your consultation, we will discuss where each thread will be carefully placed and the different threads we plan to use to help with varying degrees of skin tightening, lift, and cellular rejuvenation goals.
Who is it for?
Anyone who is interested in achieving a younger look on their face may be a good candidate for a PDO thread lift. Due to the versatility of the PDO thread lifts, it can treat virtually any area of the face. Some of the most common areas to receive a lift include:
- Crows feet
- Under Eye area
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
The most commonly treated areas of the face include the lower face/neck and cheeks. Because they respond so well to synergistic skin lifting treatments, the cheeks and lower face regions are wonderful regions to treat. The PDO threads can last for anywhere between six to nine months before they dissolve.
What are the benefits?
Benefits of the treatment can include skin lifting and contouring effects which are visible immediately after treatment. Sometimes the skin will look tighter when the treatment is done than it does a week later. Within one to two months of treatment, the final results will be visible. Depending on the age and other factors, how long it takes to achieve full results will vary. The body produces new, healthy collagen to plump up cheeks, fill in lines, and smooth out wrinkles.
