PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive non surgical facelift alternative. It uses tensile dissolving threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). The threads are introduced into the deeper layers of the skin. Once introduced, the threads produce three effects in the skin:
Gentle lifting of facial and neck areas
Skin tightening by contracting fat tissue
The most spectacular effect of these threads is that over a period of 6 months they will turbo charge your deep skin turnover process improving skin firmness and elasticity. Results are cumulative with each treatment over the years.
It gives great results for
1. Face contouring
3. Jawline tightening
How is the Thread Lift performed?
This is a minimally invasive procedure. After numbing with local anesthesia, the PDO threads are inserted under the skin and anchor the skin and lift it upwards. The excess threads are then cut off.
Depending on the areas treated, the procedure takes 45-90 minutes.
How long do the threads last?
The skin is immediately lifted after a PDO Thread lifting procedure, as the threads provide support to lift skin in its new position, providing a natural subtle lifting effect.
The rejuvenating effects kick in after 1-2 months showing a better skin texture, firmer and smoother skin. In about 9 months after the treatment the threads will dissolve, but the results will still continue for many more months.
Is the PDO Thread Lift safe?
This treatment is very safe. FDA approved high quality PDO threads are used. It is an office procedure where small amounts of local anesthesia is used for the procedure. The threads are inserted under the skin for subtle lifting and are completely invisible.
