If you have wrinkles, sagging, or loose skin, you are likely experiencing age-related changes to your complexion. These changes are completely natural, but many people want to resolve them and achieve a more youthful appearance.
While you can make your skin appear to be more glowy or healthy with the right moisturizer, you won’t see significant results from topical products. A more thorough way to get younger-looking skin is by having a PDO thread lift treatment. PDO threads can tighten the skin and create a more youthful complexion.
We offer PDO thread lift treatment at Revive Wellness Group in Perrysburg, OH. Find out how PDO threads are performed and who makes a great candidate for this treatment.
What Is a PDO Thread Lift?
A PDO thread lift is a cosmetic treatment that can lift and tighten the skin. PDO thread lifts use dissolvable sutures that are placed beneath the skin to lift it upwards and resolve sagging or looseness. These threads also dissolve into the skin and can stimulate new collagen production to produce an overall anti-aging effect.
PDO thread lifts are often regarded as a non-surgical alternative to facelift surgery. Facelifts are extensive plastic surgical procedures in which the skin is manually lifted upwards into a tighter position. Incisions are made along the forehead and behind the ears, and any excess loose skin is removed.
PDO thread lifts are ideal for people who want to resolve age-related changes in their skin without the risks of surgery.
The Benefits of PDO Thread Lifts
PDO thread lifts present a variety of benefits, particularly for mature skin. The main benefits of a PDO thread lift include the following:
- Tighter skin
- Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
- Lifted, more firm skin
- More youthful-looking complexion
- Increased collagen production
One of the most notable benefits of a PDO thread lift is that it is a non-surgical, outpatient treatment. You are able to return home the same day as your treatment without any significant recovery process.
Candidates for PDO Thread Lift Treatment
Do you want tighter, smoother skin without facelift surgery? Clients who want a more youthful complexion without having a traditional facelift make good candidates for PDO thread lifts. The ideal candidate will have loose, sagging skin around the cheeks, jawline, eyes, and neckline.
The best way to confirm that you are a candidate for a thread lift is by having a consultation with a cosmetic medicine provider. During your consultation, we will examine your skin and assess your age-related changes.
We will also go over your desired outcome. This helps us determine whether PDO threads are the right treatment to meet your needs. If not, you will be advised on alternative options that are a better fit.
PDO thread lifts are meant for clients with milder signs of aging. Slight sagging and shallow wrinkles can be resolved with PDO threads.
If you have more pronounced signs of aging, such as extreme sagging or deep wrinkles, you may be in need of a different treatment. These clients often benefit from traditional facelift surgery, as it can lift the skin into a high position and smooth out deeper wrinkles than PDO threads can.
How Is a PDO Thread Lift Performed?
During a PDO thread lift, you will be seated comfortably with your head tilted back and upwards. This allows clients to be in a relaxed position while we perform their procedure.
We will start by applying a local anesthetic to the facial skin. To place your PDO threads, we must insert a needle beneath the skin. Applying an anesthetic helps minimize any discomfort during this process.
Once the anesthetic has taken effect, we will begin placing your NovaThreads. An ultrafine needle is used to place these dissolvable sutures beneath the surface of the skin.
This placement is done in a strategic manner in specific areas around the face. For most patients, this includes the jawline, cheeks, and around the eyes. The entire PDO thread process can take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour to complete.
The purpose of these PDO threads is to provide a slight lift to the skin that makes it look tighter and more youthful. Existing fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced, and your complexion will be younger-looking overall. Over time, these sutures will dissolve into your skin’s layers and help stimulate new collagen production.
PDO Thread Lift Results
While you will notice an immediate difference in your skin, it will take time to see the complete results of your PDO thread lift. Your skin will look tighter, and there should be a decrease in sagging as soon as your treatment is complete.
However, it can take several weeks to start seeing the results of increased collagen production. Once the collagen in your skin increases, you can expect smoother skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles overall.
Your PDO thread lift results will not be permanent. Over time, age-related changes within the skin may lead to more sagging, wrinkles, and looseness.
Some patients choose to have their PDO thread treatment repeated when their results are no longer visible. This additional treatment can help keep ongoing collagen production high and help your complexion remain youthful.
