Until recently, the only way to address skin laxity was surgical facelifts or reliance on injectable compounds. Not everyone, however, is willing or able to go through such lengths. A new type of procedure has since been developed to bridge the gap between injectables and facial surgery: PDO Threading (aka the “thread lift”).
PDO Thread Lift is an innovative treatment aimed to lift and tighten sagging skin tissue with the use of threads made from Polydioxanone (PDO). Temporary sutures are embedded into the hypodermis of the skin producing a subtle yet visible lifting and smoothing effect.
In contrast to removing the patient’s loose skin surgically, the doctor simply suspends it via strategic stitching. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. Threads also combat aging by provoking a healing response, stimulating collagen production for ongoing and progressive rejuvenation. Collagen stimulation will continue to improve skin texture, fine lines, and elasticity even after the sutures have dissolved.
There is no downtime post PDO treatment and patients can see results immediately after having the procedure. Contact us to schedule your consultation!
