None of us want to look as old as we actually are. Some of us even look older than our chronological age due to genetics, health conditions, smoking, excessive drinking or repeated unprotected sun damage. Whatever your reason for wanting to look younger, a PDO Thread Lift is the closest treatment you have to a surgical facelift without actually going under the knife.
A PDO thread lift is a revolutionary new treatment in the world of aesthetics, but PDO threads themselves have been used safely for decades for various applications, like suturing incisions after medical procedures. When used as an aesthetic treatment, there are a few things you should know.
Firstly, PDO Thread Lifts can mechanically result in instant skin lifting. Second, it contracts fat tissue to result in instant skin tightening. Third, it promotes collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level, stimulating the fibroblasts to produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid at the levels we did when we were younger All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, whilst lifting, tightening, vast reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and more elastic skin
One of the best things about this treatment is it only takes up to 45 minutes, although we allow 2 hours for your appointment to cover every aspect of the procedure. After that, you’re free to go back to work or whatever else you had scheduled for the rest of your day.
Before treatment starts, we will apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment site for 30 minutes The needle used during this treatment is so fine it will not cause any pain. However, we provide anaesthesia to ensure you feel minimal discomfort during the treatment. You may feel a pushing motion.
Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, your treatment will begin. The PDO threads are inserted via blunt tip needles, called cannulas, or sharp-tipped needles. Once inserted into the appropriate layer of skin, the threads will rest superficially in the skin and get to work. You will see no entry point of the threads and there is no exit point.
This treatment is completely safe. It is approved by the FDA for safety and efficiency. Moreover, hundreds of thousands of treatments have been performed and there are no reports of allergic reactions, sensitivities to the threads, or serious side effects or risks.
Since PDO thread lifts are non-invasive, there isn’t a lot you need to do to prepare. However, there are some precautionary measures you can take to ensure the best results from your treatment. Here are things you should avoid one to two days before treatment:
· Omega fish oil supplements
· Chinese medicine
· Vitamin E
· High-intensity workouts
· Steam rooms and saunas
There are not a lot of special after-care requirements to this treatment. However, you should hold off on any dental treatments for the first two weeks after your PDO thread lift. Holding your mouth open for an excessive period of time can affect the results of your treatment. Moreover, you’ll want to sleep on your back for the first couple of weeks. This ensures you don’t put too much pressure on one side of your face.
A PDO thread lift is customized to your unique skin type, skin texture and aesthetic goals. Depending on the area you want treated, you may receive three or four carefully placed barbed threads. Different threads are used for varying degrees of lift, skin tightening and cellular rejuvenation.
Because a PDO thread lift is so versatile, it can treat virtually any area of the face. These include the:
· Jaw line
· Naso jugal folds
· Nasolabial folds
· Crow’s feet
· Undereye area
· Marionette lines
The cheeks and the lower face/neck region are the most commonly treated.
How long the PDO threads last depends on a number of factors, including the thickness of the threads, the quality of the threads and your body’s rate of metabolism. However, most of our clients find that the thread results last 18 – 24 months.
The final results of your PDO thread lift will be seen within one to two months of your treatment. How long it takes you personally depends a lot on your age. Your age is one of the leading factors in how quickly your body produces new, healthy collagen. Collagen is the protein responsible for plumping up your cheeks, filling in fine lines and smoothing out wrinkles.
If you’re looking to correct uneven pigmentation, lines, wrinkles, gaunt facial features or skin laxity of the face, you are a good candidate for a PDO thread lift. You are a particularly good candidate for this treatment if you want an instant facial lift but don’t have the time or money to commit to a traditional facelift.
