Are you already noticing the first signs of aging on your face? Perhaps you’re bothered by the sagging skin around your jawline or the wrinkles on your forehead. You know you want to do something about it, but the idea of undergoing surgery is daunting. Fortunately, a non-surgical solution can give you the lifted and rejuvenated appearance you desire: PDO Threads.
Non-surgical treatments like PDO Threads have become increasingly popular because they offer a way to achieve a youthful appearance without the risks and downtime associated with surgical procedures. They often take less than an hour to complete and are less costly than surgery.
This blog will explore PDO Threads as an effective non-surgical facelift treatment with excellent before and after results. We’ll cover how they work, the PDO Thread Lift procedure, the before and after effects, and how PDO Threads compare to other non-surgical facelift treatments. By the end of this article, you’ll better understand PDO Threads and whether they may be right for you.
What are PDO Threads?
PDO Threads are biodegradable threads made of polydioxanone (PDO). This material has been used for decades in medical procedures like cardiac surgery. PDO threads come in different lengths and thicknesses and are inserted into the skin using a fine needle.
Once inserted, the threads provide an immediate lifting effect, and over time, they stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, which helps to improve skin texture and firmness. The threads dissolve naturally over time, leaving behind a network of collagen fibers that help to maintain the lift.
There are two types of PDO threads: smooth threads and barbed threads. Smooth threads are used to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture. In contrast, barbed threads have small barbs that help to lift and reposition sagging skin.
PDO Threads can lift and tighten various face and body areas, including the cheeks, jawline, neck, arms, and abdomen. The treatment is particularly effective for people with mild to moderate skin laxity looking for a non-surgical alternative to a facelift or body lift.
PDO Thread Lift Procedure
Before the PDO Thread Lift procedure, the patient will have a consultation with a licensed and trained medical professional at Beauty Boost Med Spa to determine if they are a good candidate for the treatment. The patient’s medical history and current medications will be reviewed during the consultation, and any potential risks or complications will be discussed. We will also provide instructions on preparing for the procedure, including avoiding certain medications and supplements and refraining from smoking or drinking alcohol.
During the PDO Thread Lift procedure
The PDO Thread Lift procedure takes about an hour to complete and is usually performed under local anesthesia. We will insert the PDO threads into the skin using a fine needle, and they will gently pull on the threads to lift and tighten the skin.
Depending on the areas being treated, multiple threads may be inserted at different angles to achieve the desired results. Once the threads are in place, the medical professional will trim any excess threads and apply a bandage to the treatment area.
Post-procedure care and recovery
After the PDO Thread Lift procedure, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these symptoms usually subside within a few days. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous exercise, saunas, and hot tubs for at least two weeks after the procedure and to avoid touching or rubbing the treatment area.
Patients should also avoid sleeping on their side or stomach for the first week to avoid putting pressure on the threads. Results can be seen immediately after the treatment, but the full effects may take several weeks as the threads stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture and firmness.
What to expect from PDO Threads?
PDO Threads provide a non-surgical facelift that can rejuvenate the face by lifting sagging skin and restoring volume. Before treatment, patients may have deep creases, wrinkles, folds on their faces, and hollow areas under their eyes or cheeks. After the PDO Thread Lift procedure, patients can expect a smoother, more youthful appearance with lifted and toned skin. The treatment can improve the appearance of nasolabial folds, marionette lines, jowls, and sagging skin on the neck.
PDO Threads have been proven to provide effective and natural-looking results for many patients. Successful PDO Thread Lifts include patients who have experienced significant improvements in the appearance of their face, with lifted and tightened skin, reduced wrinkles and improved texture. They have reported high satisfaction with the results. Patients often appreciate the natural-looking results and the minimal downtime associated with the treatment.
What are the advantages of PDO Threads?
Traditional facelifts are invasive procedures that require incisions, general anesthesia, and a significant recovery period. In contrast, PDO Threads provide a non-surgical alternative with minimal downtime and a quicker recovery. In contrast, traditional facelifts may provide dramatic results but have more risks and complications.
One of the main advantages of PDO Threads is that they provide a natural-looking lift to sagging skin, with results that can last up to 18 months. Additionally, the treatment is minimally invasive and has a relatively quick recovery period, with most patients able to return to their regular activities within a week. PDO Threads can also be customized to each patient’s needs, with different threads used to target other face and body areas.
