More and more people want to look younger, but they do not want to deal with the recovery time required by surgical options such as a facelift. New advances in cosmetic procedures are opening up ways to freshen your look without surgery. At Gertsberg Aesthetics, we strive to help our clients achieve their aesthetic goals by using the most innovative procedures possible. We are excited to offer PDO (Polydiaoxinone) thread lift to help you achieve a younger-looking appearance.
What is PDO Thread Lift?
PDO thread lift is a procedure in which tiny threads of a substance called Polydiaoxinone is injected in the underlying tissue below the skin. Over time, the threads dissolve into the surrounding tissue.The benefits of this procedure are three-fold: instant mechanical lifting of the skin, collagen stimulation, and contracting fat tissue causing the skin to tighten. Any problem area of the face can be treated with PDO thread lift.
What Should I Expect?
A thread lift does not have the extensive downtime that a facelift requires. During treatment, a local anesthesia is administered to numb the injection site. The whole procedure takes 15 to 30 minutes, and causes minimal-discomfort. You can see an immediate lift after swelling subsides (usually three to five days), as well as continued lift due to increased collagen production. After six months, the threads can be completely dissolved, but you may continue to see results for three to six more months following treatment due to the cellular rejuvenation effects.
Who is a Candidate?
Men or women with mild to moderate facial sagging are the best candidates for thread lift. Anyone who has already had a facelift may also benefit from a thread lift. As the effects of a facelift start to fade, a thread lift can refresh your look without another surgery. Conversely, if you want to avoid getting the surgery aspect of a facelift, then a thread lift may be the best option for you.
To achieve the look that our clients desire, we often recommend a combination of treatments. PDO thread lifting works well with other techniques like hyaluronic fillers. Depending on your needs, our expert aestheticians can recommend a comprehensive plan to address your specific concerns.
