Skin laxity can be a troubling concern. Although collagen-based moisturizers and retinol-based serums promise to lift and tighten the skin, the truth is that many people who deal with exceptional skin laxity do not get the results they want from over-the-counter products. At Revive Wellness Group in Perrysburg, OH and Gibsonburg, OH we believe in revitalizing your natural beauty with the latest PDO thread lift treatment.
PDO Thread Lift
NOVA Threads are the latest thread lift treatment available. Like PDO threads, NOVA is formulated with polydioxanone threads, a special type of dissolvable suture that has been used in major medical surgical procedures for years. This thread lift is ideal for treating moderate to severe skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles, particularly on the lower and mid-face.
Thread lift treatments take about 30 to 45 minutes to complete most of the time. After your treatment, you will be able to achieve the results of a facelift without any surgery, prolonged recovery period, or risk of scarring. NOVA threads, in particular, can be tailored to achieve your specific aesthetic goals.
When Will You See Results?
It will take some time for you to see the results of your treatment. NOVA Threads work by building collagen around the PDO threads placed within the sub-dermal layers of your skin. It takes about four to six months for these sutures to be fully dissolved; during this time, you may notice the initial results of your treatment as soon as one to two months. Your results will continue to improve for as long as your skin produces new collagen.
How Long Do Results Last with a PDO Thread Lift?
The results of this treatment are designed to last for about six months, or as long as the collagen around the sutures will remain in your skin. Some people who are younger or who have more mild concerns may be able to enjoy results for longer than six months. For you, this means you may need another treatment about once a year to maintain your desired results.
How Should You Prepare?
Unlike a surgical facelift, preparing for a thread lift is relatively easy. You will not need to make any changes to your daily routine, although if you are taking any blood-thinning medications or supplements, you may be asked to stop for at least a week before your treatment.
The most important preparation step for your treatment is a consultation appointment. During your consultation, we will examine the severity of your skin laxity to determine the best approach for your rejuvenating treatment. Ideally, a thread lift should be an adequate treatment to address concerns like:
- Sagging jowls
- Nasolabial folds
- Skin laxity
- Loose skin on the neck
What Is Recovery Like?
The initial recovery period for your treatment will be about 24 to 48 hours. During this time, you should avoid rubbing your face, using hot water, and moving your lower face too much, including with activities like chewing food or smoking. We sometimes advise patients to adopt a soft or liquid diet to ease this period of recovery.
Most people will be able to resume normal activities about one to two weeks after your treatment. This includes returning to your normal work and exercise routine, sleeping on your side, and engaging in activities like hot tubs, saunas, and tanning beds.
Who Are Good Candidates?
Most people with moderate to severe skin laxity on the lower face are good candidates for this treatment. Many patients are between the ages of 40 and 50, which is when skin laxity tends to be the most apparent. Younger patients may be able to enjoy longer-lasting results, but even mature patients can benefit from this non-surgical treatment.
Candidates for this treatment will need to be assessed during a consultation appointment. Information about your general health, your medications, your skincare, and other details will need to be answered to determine your eligibility for this treatment. Because PDO threads are made with a bio-compatible material, most people make good candidates without any concerns about allergic reactions.
What Are the Benefits of a PDO Thread Lift?
Thread lifts have become immensely popular in the last few years. Not only are thread lifts non-surgical and generally less risky, but they can also produce more natural-looking results than a traditional facelift thanks to the natural production of new collagen. Some main NOVA threads benefits include:
As thread lifts become more widely used, many patients find that this treatment is increasingly versatile. While this treatment is traditionally used to improve wrinkles and skin laxity on the lower face, some people can also use this treatment to contour the face or improve other aspects of the appearance. For example, this treatment can be sued to contour the cheekbones, the jawline, and the area beneath the chin.
One of the most overlooked benefits of this treatment is the fact that new collagen production in the skin can also improve the overall tone and quality of your skin. Along with reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, the overall texture and tone of your skin will also improve with this treatment. By stimulating new collagen production, other skin-healing can restore the appearance of your skin.
PDO thread lift treatments have undergone several clinical trials to determine the efficacy of treatment. Some studies indicate that this treatment has a success rate of at least 90%, which is significantly higher than some other non-surgical aesthetic treatments. Although this minimally-invasive treatment may seem too good to be true, the clinical evidence proves that the results are true and long-lasting.
Restore Your Appearance With A Thread lift
Among all the PDO thread lifting treatments available to patients, NOVA threads are the newest and most popular option. This thread lift treatment can be used in several ways to address all of your age-related concerns, even for those who have severe signs of visible aging on the mid and lower face. If you’re looking for a treatment that’s much more effective than over-the-counter creams and much easier to recover from than a traditional facelift, then a thread lift is the ideal treatment for you.
