You’ve probably considered getting a facelift if you notice visible signs of aging on your face. But surgery is not always the best choice for every patient. Luckily, you can get a youthful-looking, firm complexion without facelift surgery.
PDO thread lifts use dissolvable strings to tighten your facial skin for a lifted appearance. If you want a non-surgical facelift, a thread lift is the procedure for you.
How PDO Threads Work
PDO threads are made of polydioxanone, an absorbable material that dissolves after a few months. Since these sutures are biodegradable, they are safe to leave in your body. These threads are used to lift the skin on your face for a firmer, more youthful appearance.
Boost Collagen Production
Besides physically lifting and firming your skin, PDO threads cause your body to produce more collagen. Collagen is the fibrous substance that keeps your skin elastic and youthful, and its production slows as you age. With a PDO thread lift, your body will continue to make this beneficial skin fiber and rejuvenate your skin.
Some PDO threads also boost skin volume for a younger-looking, plumper complexion. This can result when the threads are intertwined in a certain pattern. The design of these PDO threads restores volume to your skin.
As you get older, your skin loses the fullness that prevents wrinkles and fine lines. PDO threads can help your skin become full and supple, making you look younger.
We perform lifts with NovaThreads at Revive Wellness Group to restore your skin’s youthful, tight, firm appearance. NovaThreads are easily absorbable and hold your skin’s structure in place longer than other PDO threads. For this reason, we use this premium brand of threads to firm your facial skin.
When you come in for a NovaThreads procedure, we start by cleansing your skin. This ensures the areas around the threads stay sanitary.
After cleansing, we inject an anesthetic into your skin so that you don’t feel anything during the procedure. Since this treatment is non-surgical, you are awake during the procedure, and your comfort is our top priority.
Once the numbing solution starts working, we make a tiny incision where the NovaThreads will be placed. Depending on your aesthetic goals, we may place multiple small incisions to lift and tighten different areas of your face. We then attach the threads where they need to go, which immediately lifts and tightens your skin.
We trim the NovaThreads and secure the sutures at the end of the procedure. Lifts with NovaThreads require minimal recovery time, and you can return to normal activities almost immediately.
Once your procedure is over, you won’t have many restrictions on daily activities. However, there are some precautions you should take to ensure your threads stay in place. This will give you optimal anti-aging and skin-firming results.
Try to keep your hands away from your face in the first few weeks after your thread lift. If you rub your face, the threads can become dislodged, preventing you from seeing the best possible results.
We recommend sleeping with your head propped up during the first few weeks after the procedure. This will prevent you from rolling onto your face and moving the sutures. If you are a side sleeper, try to sleep on your back during this time to preserve your results.
Avoid intense physical activity for a week or two after your thread lift. We want to ensure your threads stay secure and make sure your skin has time to recover. Saunas and other activities with extreme temperatures may impact your results and be uncomfortable during your recovery.
Benefits of Thread Lifts
There are many advantages to getting a thread lift to restore youthful elasticity to your skin. Thread lifts are less invasive than surgery, with far less downtime required. Recovery is much more comfortable and convenient, as you can return to your daily routine within a day or two of your procedure.
Many patients return to work, school, and other activities on the same day as their thread lifts. Facelift surgery recovery is a lot more restrictive and time-consuming. A thread lift is a convenient, effective solution if you have mild to moderate sagging skin.
You also get the collagen-boosting benefits of the sutures with thread lifts. Collagen is one of the most important substances for maintaining a youthful complexion. The threads stimulate your body’s natural collagen production process, rejuvenating tired, dull, aged skin.
You will notice fewer fine lines, wrinkles, and textured patches on your skin after your thread lift. This is because your skin is pulled tightly over your face, similar to surgical facelift results.
Other wrinkle treatments may not be as effective because they treat your wrinkles at the surface. Instead, PDO thread lifts physically smooth wrinkles beneath the surface of your skin, resulting in a youthful-looking, rejuvenated appearance.
