PDO Thread Lift
Uses temporary sutures (PDO threads) to create a subtle, natural-looking lifting effect.
It’s a wonderful option for men and women who are ready for a refreshed, renewed look but who don’t want the extensive recovery time needed with plastic surgery.
The sutures are polydioxanone (PDO), a substance that dissolves over time and is safely absorbed by your body. These threads come in several forms, including smooth and lifting for collagen-rebuilding and facial rejuvenation.
Discussing which options are best suited for your treatment goals during a consultation.
How Does PDO Threads Work
Surgical facelift alternative
You receive a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable during the procedure, but you remain awake and alert from start to finish. Dr. Then uses a needle or a blunt-tipped cannula to insert the PDO threads into the deeper layers of your skin and create an immediate lifting effect.
Not only does the procedure create an immediate lifting effect, but it also offers lasting benefits. Your body reacts to the insertion of PDO threads with a swift healing response. New collagen is created, which serves to smooth and tighten your skin.
New blood vessels form, increasing nourishment to the cells in the treatment area. Even the surrounding fat tissue is contracted, further tightening your skin.
Appointment times depend on where and how many threads are placed.
PDO Threads Over Facelift?
Cost and complications to consider
There is no denying that a surgical face-lift will create more dramatic results than even the best thread lift. However, those results come with a risk of complications and side effects. It also takes a considerable amount of time to heal after a face-lift.
A thread lift is a great alternative for those who want to improve the contouring of their face but don’t have time for the full recovery process that comes with plastic surgery.
The cost of a PDO thread lift is also considerably less than plastic surgery.
