An Innovative Non Surgical Facelift In Town

Posted by molanparker on December 16th, 2016

With the passage of time, the trend of having aesthetic treatments is becoming commonplace among both women and men. These treatments are undertaken to stave off the effects of ageing. Botox is one of the most commonly used and popular treatment to reduce the lines and wrinkles of the upper face and to achieve a refreshed and younger appearance. Women as young as in their twenties are also having botox treatment as a preventive measure.

Along with Botox, dermal fillers are used to treat the deep wrinkles and folds and to restore the lost facial volume. However, a new treatment has recently hit the market called PDO thread lift which is increasingly becoming popular due to its high effectiveness in treating the ageing skin issues.

PDO thread lift is a revolutionary innovation that lifts, tightens and firms a loose and sagging skin without surgical intervention. PDO threads stand for the threads composed of Polydioxanone which is an absorbable thread. It is widely used in the composition of surgical sutures used in major surgeries for stitching wounds. It’s known for its excellent safety record and outstanding results.

It’s kind of a non-surgical facelift that gives nearly similar results to that of a surgical face lift. In comparison to a surgical facelift treatment, PDO thread lift has a little downtime and has no visible scarring. The treatment is perfect for the patients who do not wish to undergo surgical facelift yet wants to achieve the similar results and has little skin sagging.

The ideal candidates for the thread lift procedure are those who have just started to experience mild skin sagging in their cheeks, brows, jowls and neck area. The treatment is not for those who are extremely over weight or under weight or if their skin has too much sagging which can only be fixed with a surgical facelift.

Threads are special kind of sutures that are designed for lifting and tightening the sagging facial contours. They are not smooth in fact they are supplied with barbs or cogs which lift the skin. They are inserted into the skin through tiny incisions using extra fine needles in a mesh pattern. These threads give an instant lift to the skin which keeps on improving as the threads dissolve into the skin over the next few months. The PDO threads stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin as they dissolve resulting in giving a skin tightening and lifting effect.

The PDO threads absorb completely into the body over a period of 4-6 months during which the skin repairs and rejuvenates itself by producing new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

The results of PDO thread lift last for up to 2 years depending on different lifestyle factors, a degree of skin sagging and patient’s age. The procedure naturally rejuvenates and redefines the facial contours without changing the natural features of the face.

The procedure cause swelling and bruising which usually subsides in few days. However, tiny incision scars take sometimes to fade and are not visible.
