No one wants to look as old as they actually are, and as life passes by, the wear and damage to our bodies and skin become impossible not to notice. As we get older, our cells lose their ability to replace and repair themselves and begin losing vitality and durability over time.
Many complex factors influence the rate of aging, such as a person’s environment, their choice of work, nutritional and dietary habits, genetics, sun exposure, and overall accumulation of damage and exhaustion over a lifetime.
The process of aging is most natural but unfortunately, most undesirable. But what if there was a way to help tighten, tone, and lift sagging or otherwise affected areas of the skin?
PDO thread lifts are a great option for people hoping to find a procedure that can help them look younger and feel better about certain vulnerable areas. It is common for patients to have questions before receiving treatment, and below we will try to answer any questions that you might have before scheduling your PDO Thread lift procedure.
PDO Thread Lift is a minimally invasive and less risky type of procedure than the classical facelift. PDO Thread lifts are meant to eliminate facial lines, wrinkles, and help in restoring the skin to a tighter and more buoyant position by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen. The acronym PDO stands for polydioxanone material which is what the suture or threads are made of that is inserted into a patient’s affected area of the dermis.
Polydioxanone is a highly flexible, durable, and naturally absorbable polymer that allows for insertion into the patient’s dermis. This material has been safely used in PDO thread lift procedures as well as orthopedic, cardiovascular, and plastic surgeries of various types for decades and dissolves naturally over time. The procedure is minimally invasive and is a great alternative for patients looking for mild to moderate toning and tightening of the skin.
Depending on the patient’s specific situation and desire in how much lift they are looking to receive, there are typically three types of sutures used in the procedure. Smooth threads or mono threads are used for minor lifts of the skin, twisted or corkscrew-like threads that are used for an increase in volume and more lift, and the third barbed threads that are used when trying to achieve the most lift, volume, and natural collagen production.
Yes, PDO thread lift procedures are minimally invasive and carry little to no risk. The sutures used have been in practice for decades and dissolve naturally in the receiving patient’s skin over time. After about a week or less of recovery, patients may return to everyday activities and the results of the procedure will be in full effect. PDO thread lift procedure is FDA approved and is a great alternative to more invasive and risky cosmetic procedures like a classical facelift.
As well as being very effective, minimally invasive, and not dangerous, the PDO thread lift procedure only takes about 15 to 30 minutes leaving the patient to do whatever he or she had planned for the rest of the day. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, PDO thread lift procedures are very fast in duration with aesthetic results that are just as quick to follow.
