Are you tired of drooping, sagging skin on the face and neck? Maybe you have tried every face cream available but they don’t seem to make any difference at all, and you never see any improvement. But maybe you aren’t ready for a facelift or other plastic surgery procedure, either. A PDO thread lift may be the answer for you! Read on for the many benefits that come with this procedure.
What is a thread lift?
In a thread lift procedure, tiny threads are placed strategically under the skin to lift up drooping tissue. They can be placed where skin needs a boost most, in such a way as to lift the cheeks, the jowls, the corners of the mouth, or the brow line. These threads are biocompatible, made from a material called “PDO.” Within 6 months, the body will absorb these threads, but the benefits remain – not only do they lift sagging skin, but as they dissolve they stimulate new collagen to grow. Collagen is a protein that helps to keep skin firm and youthful looking.
What are the benefits of a thread lift procedure?
A thread lift procedure, unlike a facelift, is not a surgical procedure. Facelifts are invasive surgery and can mean a long recovery time and a lot of side effects – a PDO thread lift can be done in your doctor’s office, takes less than an hour, and only requires local anesthesia. Few, if any, incisions are needed, and little or no recovery time is needed – you can return to work and your other normal activities immediately after the procedure.
You may notice some swelling, redness, and some soreness, but these typically don’t last long. Another advantage is that the impressive results of a thread lift can be seen for up to 2 years. And, the threads used in the procedure are FDA approved.
