What is A Jawline Thread Lift?
A thread jaw lift is designed to lift the skin and muscles around the jawline, creating a more youthful appearance by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and adding more volume to the area.
While signs of aging can be reduced and even eliminated in a variety of ways with cosmetic surgery, thread lifts produce the same results through non-invasive techniques.
How PDO Lifts Work
A thread lift involves lifting the skin and underlying tissues in a specific area on the face or body with absorbable sutures called PDO threads. PDO threads are small, barbed strings that are made of hypoallergenic, synthetic material which slowly dissolves over time.
For jaw PDO lifts, the barbs hook onto skin, muscles, fat, and other facial tissues to lift and tighten the area, reducing wrinkles, sagging skin, and other cosmetic concerns. PDO threads also stimulate natural collagen production, which creates long lasting effects.
Thread lifts can be used anywhere on the body to tighten the skin and create a more youthful appearance, improving the overall look of the jaw, face, eye area, neck, nose, abdomen, arms, etc.
When placing the threads, your clinician will discuss your cosmetic goals with you in order to figure out which types of threads should be used for your procedure, how many, and where they need to be placed. This procedure is fully customizable, which means you can achieve a subtle change or a more dramatic look depending on how many threads are used and where they are inserted.
Jaw thread lifts usually take less than an hour to complete, but may take longer if a patient is having many threads inserted, or multiple areas are being treated.
How Long Do Jaw Thread Lifts Last?
The results of PDO thread lifts for jaw enhancement and contouring usually last about 1 year, but they can last up to 2 years in some patients. Individual biological factors in each patient’s body will affect how quickly the threads are absorbed.
PDO threads typically dissolve in 6 to 10 months, but the lifting effects extend beyond that time because threads stimulate the body’s natural collagen production.
PDO threads are polydioxanone threads and have been safely used in surgeries for many years. Since they dissolve slowly over time, there is no need for surgical removal and the results of a thread lift are not permanent, although they are long lasting.
Good candidates for jaw thread lifts include men and women who want to define their jawline with minimal downtime, very few side effects, no scarring, and no surgical procedures. Jaw thread lifts reduce sagging skin, jowls, wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging, so anyone looking to target these issues will likely qualify.
Additionally, because jaw thread lifts are a fast, minimally invasive alternative to surgical facelifts, patients who want immediate, natural-looking results can benefit, as well.
