When people hear cosmetic therapy, patients often think of scalpels, stitches, and swelling. But what if we told you that you could fix loose and sagging skin with a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that only takes about an hour?
The PDO thread lift is a newer version of a popular treatment from the 1990s. It is offered at Suvita Medical Aesthetics with lots of benefits to gain! Check out this blog post to see more details about PDO thread lift.
How Well Does PDO Thread Lift Work?
PDO Thread Lift works very well. This technique that doesn’t involve surgery is becoming increasingly popular to tighten skin and eliminate mild to moderate sagging. It is most often used on the neck, brows, and cheeks, but you can use it on almost any other part of the face, such as:
- Behind the eyes
- The inside of the eyes
- Nose-to-mouth creases
- Crow’s feet on the jawline
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) published a study saying PDO thread lifts work and is effective for most skin aging concerns. The study also says that thread lifts shape facial soft tissues.
New Idea of PDO Thread Lift
The new idea in cosmetic treatments is to use the body’s natural processes instead of cutting, pulling, and stretching skin by hand to get the look you want.
PDO threads are a part of this growing idea, which has significantly increased the number of therapy requests. You can now choose how to treat your face to make it look younger, and you have more control over how much time and money you spend on treatment.
How does the PDO Thread Lift Function?
We just talked about how modern beauty treatments work with the body. For example, a PDO thread lift helps the body make more collagen and elastin. Once the treatment threads are in place, the body sees them as foreign agents.
But there’s no need to worry because this is normal. It’s a vital part of the treatment, showing how the body is constantly and naturally trying to protect itself from outside threats. In response to the threads, the body makes more collagen and elastin in specific places to repair what it thinks is damage to the skin.
These two proteins are a big part of what gives the skin its firmness, smoothness, lifted look, and natural glow. In short, a PDO thread lift changes and improves the way you look in many ways.
The Threads, On Their Own
Of course, there are also benefits to the threads themselves. Each line is thinner than a strand of hair and is made of polydioxanone (PDO) that dissolves in the body.
Research shows that putting these threads in places where the skin is loose relaxes the tendons and muscles. This smooths out the skin, making it look younger and free of wrinkles and fine lines.
PDO Thread Lift at Suvita
The Thread Lifting procedure is an invasive treatment for mild to moderate skin laxity. Thread lifting will work on different parts of the face to make it look younger and better without the commitment of a facelift.
This procedure is safe, has a low risk, shortens the time it takes to heal, and has few side effects. This treatment takes about 45 minutes to finish, so the patient has a good experience because it is easy and convenient.
With this procedure, there are only a few downtimes, so you can return to everyday life quickly.
V-Soft Line Thread Lift at Suvita
At Suvita, we use the V-Soft line’s barbed PDO lifting threads to get the best results. This barb lifting method is an old one. Depending on where the treatment area is on the face, it can have different effects that the person wants.
With this new thread lift, you can improve facial features by adding volume and making the skin better. This is done with a procedure and product that last longer than most others.
This method also makes the skin look younger, healthier, and more vital. The V-Soft line PDO Thread lift gives you a natural look that doesn’t affect how you move your face. In general, it only makes you look younger and more beautiful.
This treatment is approved in both the U.S. and Europe. It has also been approved by the FDA and is a CE Medical Device.
Where Do the Threads Go?
The threads hold the skin in place and lift it right away, just like a facelift. And, as we just talked about, PDO threads stay under the skin until they break down. The body breaks them down safely, similar to how dissolvable sutures are used after surgery.
Around the eyes, this treatment gives the designer look many people are asking for these days. The eyes are soft almond-shaped, and the outer corners are slightly turned.
Threads can also change the shape and arch of your eyebrows to make you look sexier and more put together. The good thing about this treatment is that more results will come as collagen and elastin production goes up over the next few days and weeks. What this means is:
- Skin with a smoother texture
- Skin that is thicker and tauter
- It reduces wrinkles and fine lines for a long time.
- More radiant complexion
When Will Collagen Appear?
After about ten days, this protein starts to be made by itself. After about six months, the effects reach their peak. They can last up to two years as your body keeps making more collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA).
Yes, HA works with the other proteins mentioned to make the skin look smoother and more refined. You can add better hydration and firmer, softer skin to the list of things this treatment does for you.
The threads fall out after about 12 weeks, making the skin look softer and smoother. This treatment can have dramatic or subtle effects, depending on its use. No matter what, you’ll still look like yourself because you won’t look too full or too done up, which can happen with some treatments.
More specifically, you will look like you just returned from a relaxing vacation because your skin will be fresher, firmer, and softer.
Caring For Your Skin
With just one treatment, some people see results lasting up to nine years. How you take care of your skin after therapy is a crucial factor. By following the tips below, getting better will be quick, easy, and effective:
- For a week, put off all beauty treatments, like peels and fillers.
- Stay out in the sun or heat for a week.
- For seven days, don’t drink or take blood thinners.
- Do not massage or touch the treated area for two weeks.
- Use a gentle wash and warm water to wash your face.
- Sleep with your head raised.
- Put off dental care for four weeks.
- Heat treatments, like IPL and laser, should only be used near the treatment site for a short time.
Take note that you might not be a good candidate for the PDO thread lift if you have acne, broken skin, or cold sores. We may also suggest that you postpone your session if you have taken blood-thinning drugs like aspirin or drank alcohol in the 48 hours before your session.
And women who are pregnant or nursing or have autoimmune diseases, diabetes, or active infections, should not be treated. Suvita Medical Aesthetics is proud to offer our clients thread lift treatment at our clinic.
