If you feel that as you’ve grown older the skin on your face has become loose or that it’s starting to sag, and you would like a tighter, fresher, more youthful look without having any invasive surgery, then you should really consider PDO thread lift treatment.
When we age it causes the skin tissue to become thinner because the collagen and elastin fibres break down, and this results in sagging skin, creases, folds, lines and wrinkles. PDO threads are a non-surgical treatment which can restore the face and neck, giving it back a youthful shape. They can improve and reduce sagging loose skin, such as the jowls, cheeks, neck and drooping eyebrows.
At a consultation the cosmetic doctor will discuss your needs and decide what sort of result you are looking for. They will decide which areas they will concentrate on, to get an overall enhanced appearance. The treatment involves lifting different areas of the face using specialised threads, all done without the need for surgical incisions.
An ultra fine needle inserts the thread into the skin, into either the skin itself, the subcutaneous fat or the muscle. Thread lifts can help improve sagging cheeks, forehead wrinkles, deep lines and wrinkles, loss of facial volume, the jowls and can even redefine the jaw line. Thread lifts are ideal for those who want a subtle change in their mid and lower face and don’t want a long recovery time.
PDO Thread lifts can give you amazing results on;
- Sagging jowls
- Under eye bags
- Drooping upper eyebrows
- Defining the jaw line
The practitioner places the PDO threads under the skin in strategic places, forming a matrix of threads that will lift and rejuvenate the skin. The threads help to tighten and firm the skin by promoting collagen and elastin and improving skin hydration by promoting hyaluronic acid, which smooths the skin. Wrinkles will ease and the skin will look less crepe-like. Some of the threads are fine like hairs and the stronger threads are thicker and have small barbs on them that will attach to the skin and give a good lifting result. You’ll notice a lifted appearance immediately after the treatment, and the results will continue improving over the following days and weeks.
The benefits of a thread lift include;
- Immediate and long-lasting results
- Minimal downtime
- Increase in natural collagen production
- No cuts or incisions
- No stitches
The PDO threads gradually dissolve after six months, and the skin will keep improving for about two to six months, as new collagen grows between the threads giving a further lift and tightening to the skin. The results last for twelve to eighteen months.
