Nonsurgical Alternative to a Facelift
Have you ever wished for the results of a facelift surgery without undergoing the scalpel? You’re in luck! Much less invasive than a facelift surgery, a PDO thread lift is a procedure which tightens and lifts sagging skin utilizing a dissolvable suture.
This FDA Cleared procedure has taken the industry by storm and provides amazing results for all skin types and age ranges. PDO thread lifts subtly lift facial features and encourage collagen production while simultaneously smoothing fine lines and wrinkles in the treated area. Schedule a consultation at Medical Cosmetics today to see if this treatment is a good fit to help you achieve your desired results.
What Is a PDO Thread Lift?
The PDO absorbable thread lift procedure is one of the most effective ways to lift and tighten loose, saggy skin without the need for surgery. These dissolving sutures are high-quality cannula made of surgical stainless steel and coated with a very thin layer of medical silicone. This allows for easy entry into the skin which greatly minimizes patient discomfort.
Which Areas Can Be Treated?
PDO thread lifts are extremely versatile and can be used in nearly any part of the face and neck. It creates a gentle lift to regions of the face that need a small amount of extra support. Thread lifts are commonly used to treat:
- Sagging jawline
- Horizontal or vertical forehead wrinkles
- Nasolabial lines
- Sagging eyebrows
- Drooping cheeks
- Marionette lines
- Winkles on the chin and neck
- Lift loose skin on the upper arms, stomach, thighs and around the knees
Contact the trusted team at Medical Cosmetics today for a consultation to determine if a PDO thread lift is the best option for you. We may be able to combine this treatment with another to provide optimal effects. In many cases this can be thought of as an adjunct or substitute for Sculptra, fat grafting, or hyper dilute Radiesse.
How Does It Work & What Can You Expect?
VSoft absorbable PDO threads provide instant, natural looking results and improve the appearance of skin right away. After about 2 weeks a process of natural protein synthesis begins and over the following many weeks it will continue to improve, peaking at about 6 months.
The effects from this treatment last up to two years as your own body produces collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. The PDO threads will dissolve on their own in 12 weeks leaving behind new collagen which forms around the threads and continues to support results.
Many People Are Calling the PDO Thread Lift the New Facelift
Doctors across the industry have been touting the advantages of a PDO thread lift over surgical facelift procedures. One of the biggest pros is that recovery time is greatly reduced when surgical intervention can be avoided. During a facelift surgery the patient is sedated and must arrange for transportation to and from the procedure. Post-surgery, they also require round the clock care for multiple days.
Comparatively speaking, recovering from a PDO thread lift is very easy. No anesthesia is required, instead only general anesthetics are used. That means patients can drive themselves to and from the procedure and will still look like themselves even immediately afterwards. You may experience slight side effects such as swelling, soreness, and redness on the treatment day. Thread lifts are also much more affordable than facelift surgeries.
