PDO Thread Lifts Can Enhance Your Natural Beauty
PDO threads renew and tighten skin, lifting up to give it a more youthful appearance. They’re an excellent choice for anyone wanting to turn back the hands of time.
The future of beauty is now! If you’re after a tighter, lifted facial contour without the extended downtime required for a conventional face-lift, the polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift is an excellent beauty treatment to consider.
This innovative anti-aging therapy provides a simple approach to lifting the face, giving you a firmer, younger looking appearance in just a few minutes. Dr. Edwards at Natural Radiance Med Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona, is thrilled to offer his clients this new PDO thread lift beauty treatment. Read on to learn how this novel face-lift rejuvenates your face.
How do PDO threads work?
Loose, sagging facial skin is one of the most noticeable signs of aging. No longer is a conventional face lift the only way to address this issue. Thread lifts are an innovative technique that tightens and lifts the skin by using dissolvable sutures.
First used in the 1980s, PDO threads have a long history of safe use in medicine and surgery to suture and seal wounds. They’re constructed of colorless absorbable material, which dissolves in the body and is totally eliminated after 6 months.
We carefully place the PDO threads into the skin and then tighten and pull them back. Not only does this lift sagging skin areas, but it also rejuvenates the skin by increasing blood flow and stimulating the body to produce new collagen.
What areas does a PDO thread lift help?
At Natural Radiance Med Spa, we use PDO threads to lift, smooth, support, and revitalize the quality of the skin in areas such as your neck, cheeks, jaw, upper lip, and eyes. Additionally, we can use a thread lift to lift loose skin on the upper arms, stomach, thighs, and around the knees, among other places.
The PDO thread lift is an excellent option if you have mild signs of facial aging and want a small lift to refresh and rejuvenate your skin.
What is a PDO thread lift like?
To perform your PDO thread lift, we place multiple fine needles with fine threads resembling hair shafts into your skin. Once we remove the fine needles, the fine thread is left beneath the skin. The process takes 20-30 minutes.
PDO thread lift recovery is quick. You can expect some minor bruising and swelling for one or two days, but most patients can return to work the next day.
We recommend a soft food diet and reducing the amount of mouth opening till the soreness subsides. Following treatment, you will be given detailed aftercare recommendations.
Long lasting results with PDO thread lift
The PDO thread lift produces instant results that become even more evident after 1-2 weeks when the swelling has subsided. While the sutures themselves will dissolve within six months, the body produces more collagen to rejuvenate the skin. This means you will continue to get results after the PDO threads dissolve. Many patients enjoy their more youthful look for 18 months or more, and we can add more threads down the road to extend your results!
