Restore Complexion & Skin Elasticity with Non Surgical Face Lift Threading
Common signs of aging like sagging skin and wrinkles are things we are all trying to reduce, prevent, or eliminate entirely when possible. As we grow older our skin loses collagen and the body produces less of it, wrinkles and fine lines surface, moisture levels in the skin lower, and the effects of gravity start to show.
For years, patients would opt to improve these cosmetic issues through facelift surgery, injectable fillers, and Botox in Chicago. Today, individuals who are dealing with sagging skin, wrinkles, dullness, lost elasticity in the skin, and lost volume, can rejuvenate their appearance without surgical procedures or anti-aging injectables.
PDO Lifts – The Magic of Threading
If you have ever heard the term, “non surgical facelift,” you might wonder what exactly it entails. A PDO thread lift is a perfect example of an advanced cosmetic treatment that provides patients with a way to achieve a lifted, rejuvenated look without the need for surgery, scars, or a long recovery period.
With a PDO lift, surgical-grade, absorbable sutures are inserted beneath the skin to lift sagging tissues and loose skin. Lined with tiny hook-like barbs, the sutures tug and hold tissues in place to create a more youthful, contoured appearance. This process also triggers the body’s natural healing response and stimulates collagen production, which improves skin texture, brightness, and restores lost volume to the treated area.
PDO thread lifts also eliminate wrinkles and folds caused by sagging skin. While a surgical procedure such as a traditional facelift in Chicago will produce more dramatic results, a thread lift provides extensive skin rejuvenation and contouring without the need for surgery.
About the Threads
PDO threads, or polydioxanone threads, are medical-grade threads that have been used for years in a variety of surgeries. They absorb naturally over time, so there is no need for surgical removal.
What Does it Treat?
A PDO lift treats various signs of aging, including deep wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, folds, dull complexion, lost elasticity, and lost volume. PDO lifts also help improve the strength of skin, as they temporarily induce collagen production, which naturally diminishes with age.
The Results and How Long Do They Last?
A PDO thread lift is designed to produce instant results, but the final results gradually emerge over time as collagen production enhances the skin’s appearance, and the threads continue to lift and tighten underlying tissues.
The PDO threads themselves are fully absorbed by the body between 6-10 months, but the effects of the lift last longer. For most patients, the results of a thread lift will last for a year after the procedure, but individual biological factors play a part in how quickly the body heals and how fast the threads dissolve. Therefore, some patients may see results that last for up to 18 months or even 2 years.
The recovery process of a thread lift is simple and short. Patients receive a local anesthetic during treatment, and since there is no surgery or stitching, they can return to their normal activities almost immediately. While slight swelling or bruising is normal, it is usually minimal and heals quickly.
Treatment takes less than an hour in most cases. During a thorough consultation with one of our experienced clinicians from Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute, we will map out a plan to help you achieve your cosmetic goals. After your consultation, we will determine which type of threads and how many should be used, and their placement prior to the procedure.
How to Know if You are A Good Candidate
Good candidates for PDO lifts are interested in improving the appearance of sagging or loose skin, dull complexion, wrinkles, and fine lines. Ideal candidates are typically between the ages of 35 and 55, and either cannot tolerate or do not wish to undergo surgery to achieve a more lifted, rejuvenated appearance. Good candidates for thread lifts are also looking for more subtle results than what is normally achieved through surgical measures.
Types of Thread Lifts
Thread lift procedures are not exclusive to the face. Thread lifts can be performed on numerous areas of the body, including the abdomen, butt, breasts, neck, jaw, arms, and more.
