How Do PDO Threads Lift and Tighten Droopy Facial Skin?
As we begin to age, saggy skin is a typical problem for many men and women. Often, a saggy complexion could make you appear older than you are. This happens because the vital skin nutrients collagen and elastin start to decrease. When they become depleted, it causes a droopy face. If you want to treat flabby skin, you can manage the signs of aging without requiring the expense and recovery time of surgery.
Known as a “lunchtime facelift,” a polydioxanone thread lifting (PDO) is a minimally invasive option that reduces wrinkles and lifts saggy skin. While offering beautiful outcomes, this revolutionary treatment is an excellent alternative for patients who want similar surgical facelift effects. If you want to learn more about this exciting procedure, please read through our blog and schedule a consultation with double board-certified physician Dr. Raj Singh at Seven Heart Medspa in Las Vegas, NV.
What are the benefits of thread lift?
A PDO thread lift is a nonsurgical skin tightening procedure for facial rejuvenation. It provides a variety of benefits, including:
- Stimulating collagen production on face
- Reducing loose skin on face
- Decreasing sagging skin on face
- Preventing a double chin
It also addresses specific areas on your face, like the neck, cheeks, smile lines, folds, Crow’s feet, and bags underneath the eyes. Depending on your personal goals, Dr. Singh can create a treatment strategy that works best for you. Not only can you have long-lasting results, but you can also see noticeable outcomes almost immediately after your treatment.
What is PDO thread lift?
A PDO threading treatment uses dissolvable PDO threads and encourages the production of elastin and collagen. At the beginning of your treatment, you will receive a local anesthetic to help you remain comfortable. After you feel relaxed, Dr. Singh carefully inserts the threads in the designated treatment areas. He may use certain types of threads to provide different results, which enhances your complexion even more. In some cases, he may place barbed threads to lift saggy skin or twist threads to improve volume within the cheeks or around deep folds.
You and he will determine these spots during your consultation. Once we have placed the threads, they will help lift and tighten the complexion and stimulate collagen production, creating rejuvenated skin over time.
How long does it take for PDO threads to heal?
You may feel curious about the recovery time and what to expect during this process. One of the best parts of this procedure is you can see your results almost instantly. Threads that twist and smooth can take around 2 – 3 months to heal, but they will positively transform your complexion from the inside and out. Additionally, you may have some discomfort near the insertion points, such as tightness, tenderness, and inflammation. Following the procedure, patients receive a list of aftercare instructions to help heal and improve their results. To maintain your refreshed skin, we recommend a follow-up appointment every six months.
