Have you noticed age-related changes in your skin? Wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, and loss of volume are all common signs of aging that can change your appearance.
Fortunately, a PDO thread lift can resolve many of these changes and help you achieve a more youthful look without surgical intervention. The following are some of the most commonly asked questions about PDO thread lifts.
What Is a PDO Thread Lift?
A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that aims to tighten skin and reduce signs of aging. PDO thread lifts use dissolvable sutures placed beneath the skin to produce a lifting and tightening effect while stimulating new collagen production. This can mimic the outcome of a traditional face-lift without any surgical intervention.
Who Is a Candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?
Good candidates for PDO thread lifts are clients with moderate to severe signs of aging in their skin. These signs can include wrinkles, sagging, loss of volume, and facial creases.
Good PDO thread lift candidates are typically in their mid-to-late 40s and older and have experienced a significant decline in their skin’s collagen and elastin production.
What Are the Benefits of a PDO Thread Lift?
Patients enjoy PDO thread lifts because they offer a variety of cosmetic benefits. Some of these benefits include:
- Firming loose skin
- Lifting sagging skin
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Increasing collagen production
The most notable benefits of PDO thread lifts are in the procedure itself. A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive outpatient treatment. This means you are able to return home the same day as your procedure.
How Is a PDO Thread Lift Performed?
The PDO thread lift process begins with the application of a topical numbing cream to provide increased comfort. Once the cream has taken effect, tiny threads composed of dissolvable sutures are inserted under the skin into predetermined treatment areas. For most patients, this is along the jawline, lower cheeks, and around the mouth.
The entire process generally takes about 45 minutes to one hour to complete.
What Is Recovering After PDO Thread Lift Like?
One of the best benefits of a PDO thread lift is that the recovery process is simple. Patients can resume their normal activity within hours of the treatment. The only recommendation is to avoid strenuous activities that could involve direct impact to the face for several weeks after the procedure.
Are PDO Threads Safe?
A PDO thread lift is considered to be a safe procedure for most clients. If you have certain skin conditions, you may be unable to receive this treatment. During your consultation appointment, your provider will review your medical history to determine whether a PDO thread lift is a safe procedure for you to have.
