Over time, your body experiences a loss of collagen and elastin production, which is what makes your skin firm, supple, and youthful. You may notice that your skin begins to sag or become a bit more wrinkled than it was in the past, and that’s ok. Believe it or not, everyone goes through this change at some point in their lives. The great news is that there is something that can be done to regain that youthfulness. At Synergy Face + Body, we offer the PDO thread lift to bring your facial skin to new heights. This minimally invasive procedure is a perfect alternative to a surgical facelift, and it provides quick results with little-to-no downtime. PDO thread lift can decrease lines and wrinkles, tighten the skin, and enhance your look and confidence!
How Does a PDO Thread Lift Work?
A PDO thread lift is FDA approved and uses absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) threads to lift and tighten the skin without the need for a traditional facelift procedure. The threads are inserted through small strategically placed incisions using a cannula. Once in place, the excess threads are cut off, and the PDO threads act as anchors to lift the skin from the inside, promoting cell renewal for a smoother and more youthful facial appearance.
This minimally invasive procedure is fairly quick, lasting less than 30 minutes, and the lifting and contouring effects are visible immediately after so patients can enjoy their results and continue with their day as planned.
What Areas Can a PDO Thread Lift Treat?
PDO threads are so versatile and can treat nearly any area of the face, including the:
A personalized consultation with a specialist at Synergy Face + Body will help determine which area(s) of the face would benefit the most from a PDO thread lift. Other treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers may be better suited for your needs or they can even complement the effects of your PDO thread lift.
What Can I Expect After My PDO Thread Lift?
After your PDO thread lift, you may experience swelling and feel sore in the treated area. Scheduling some time to rest is very beneficial to your recovery. Sleeping on your back is recommended so that the threads do not get dislodged or scrunched in any way, which could change the look of your lift. Full post-treatment instructions will be provided.
Results typically last one to three years, depending on your lifestyle and how quickly your body absorbs the threads. The threads last about nine full months before being metabolized by your body, and because this procedure stimulates collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production, your anti-aging results can last even longer due to the natural rejuvenation process.
So, lift your skin and increase your confidence with a PDO thread lift at Synergy Face + Body to feel and look youthful and even more beautiful!
