The Non-Surgical Facelift
The PDO Thread Lift is a revolutionary new, non-surgical facelift procedure designed to lift, tighten, smooth, and contour the face and neck. Unlike the much more costly, highly-invasive surgical facelift, the PDO Thread lift can provide patients with almost immediate results and a lift in the face, cheeks, neck, and jowls, with minimal downtime or recovery!
How Does the PDO Thread Lift Work?
This facelift procedure utilizes specially designed, dissolvable thread materials that are placed strategically beneath the skin to achieve results similar to its surgical counterpart, in much less time, and without the pain or long recovery period.
These threads, sometimes known as Euro threads, as a part of the EuroThread Lift procedure – are composed of polydioxanone – a material that has been used in surgical procedures for years. Using an ultra-fine needle, the threads are placed beneath the skin, remaining there to provide a lift while stimulating the production of fresh, new collagen – a vital skincare protein, that makes up the majority of our body’s structural connective tissue.
As we age, our body becomes depleted of collagen, and this causes a loss in overall facial volume – leading to wrinkles, lines, and loose, sagging skin. The added collagen restores this lost volume and lifts the loose, sagging skin to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines, while providing the skin with added elasticity, and improving the overall tone, texture, and quality over time. Within 6 months or so, the PDO threads will slowly dissolve having done their job.
The procedure itself only takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete, possibly longer depending on the amount of correction needed and the location of the treatment area. Patients should expect almost immediate results that progressively improve until this point; the results typically last anywhere from 1 to 2 years – without re-administration.
Side Effects & Downtime
Again, the beauty of this procedure is that there is little to no downtime, and patients can resume their daily activities almost immediately following the procedure. However, patients can expect to experience some minor swelling, soreness, and light bruising – these side effects should dissipate within the first day or so after the procedure.
What Does the PDO Thread Lift Treat?
The PDO Thread Lift can help provide an overall lift and a number of anti-aging benefits to most areas along the face and neck – proving most effective at reducing the signs of aging and creating smooth, tight contours along the cheeks, jowls, chin and neck areas.
The PDO Thread Lift can help alleviate the following cosmetic issues:
- Wrinkles, Fine Lines, and Facial Volume Loss
- Loose, Sagging Skin Along the Face & Neck
- Smiles Lines, Marionette Lines & Nasolabial Folds
- Poorly Defined or Saggy Jawline
- Neck Lines
