PDO thread lift firms face, neck, & body without surgery. Cheeks, eyebrows, neck, arms, thighs benefit. Collagen stimulation provides 12-18 month lift.
The PDO thread lift procedure is used to address loose or sagging skin on the face, neck, and body, offering a non-invasive alternative to surgery. Areas that can benefit from PDO therapy include the cheeks, eyebrows, jawline, neck, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, as well as the arms, thighs, and stomach. This method encourages the skin to generate collagen, and within three months, collagen forms around the threads, resulting in a lifting effect that can endure for approximately 12 to 18 months.
What happens during a PDO Thread Lift?
As a PDO thread lift is a non-surgical treatment, the process starts with the application of a topical numbing agent and local anaesthetic at the treatment site. The needles used in PDO thread lift procedures are quite small, ensuring minimal discomfort.
During the procedure, PDO threads are introduced into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using cannulas or blunt-tipped needles, serving as anchors to lift the skin. The external threads are then trimmed. This immediate lifting effect results from the constriction of fat tissue. PDO threads function similarly to dermal fillers, but instead of injecting a solution into the skin, a dissolvable thread is left in place.
PDO Thread Lift VS Surgical Face Lift
PDO thread lift outcomes are subtler, typically requiring infrequent repetition. This non-surgical thread lift is swift, relatively painless, leaves no scars, involves minimal downtime, and doesn’t require a hospital stay. The associated risks are considerably lower than those of surgery, making it a viable choice for individuals with respiratory or cardiac conditions and those unable to tolerate anesthesia. It’s important to view PDO thread lift not as a surgical substitute; rather, they yield temporary and gentler results, offering an excellent option to explore a fresh appearance without surgical intervention.
PDO Thread Lift After Care.
The majority can swiftly resume regular activities with immediate lifting effects. Some may experience mild side effects like redness, swelling, bruising, pinprick marks, or slight puckering at the suture site, which usually goes within two weeks. Soreness in the sutures may last up to a week, and paracetamol can be helpful if needed.
We recommend sleeping on your back for five nights, avoiding makeup for the first week, refraining from facials, massages, or applying excessive pressure for two weeks, and avoiding strenuous exercise and alcohol. Regularly moisturizing and hydrating your skin also aids in the healing process, minimizing side effects and the risk of infection. However, it is crucial to attend your review appointment so that Chris Dewsbury can monitor the healing process after your PDO Thread Lift.
