A PDO thread lift is the non-surgical answer to loose skin, which occurs as a normal part of aging. Aging causes our skin to lose its collagen, which is the protein that gives your skin its structure and elasticity, resulting in a loss in skin resiliency and the skin becoming lax. Loose skin can be seen anywhere on the face, including the upper and lower eyelids. We can help you experience a dramatic improvement in loose skin with a 45-minute PDO thread lift.
How you define beauty is unique to you, but there are three universal factors: balance, harmony, and symmetry. At the Lind Institute of Plastic Surgery, our mission is to provide world-class service and personalized care while delivering the finest non-surgical treatments in the USA. These treatments include thread lifts using PDO threads.
What is a PDO Thread Lift?
Also known as a non-surgical facelift, a PDO thread lift is a procedure that uses a dissolvable suture to tighten and lift your skin. It is less invasive than facelift surgery because it uses a biodegradable polyester suture. This revolutionary new treatment in the world of aesthetics is best suited for rejuvenating and lifting your skin.
A PDO thread lift mechanically produces instant skin lifting while contracting fat tissue for instant skin tightening. Additionally, these threads promote collagen production to renew your skin at the cellular level, giving you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles, and more excellent skin elasticity.
Why are PDO threads unique?
PDO threads are polyester, breaking down in your body after approximately six months. There are several types of PDO threads, and depending on your aesthetic goals, your PDO provider may use one or many thread types during your PDO thread lift. Factors affected by the kind of thread used include:
- Tensile strength
- Cost of treatment
In addition to physically lifting the face, implanting these sutures in your skin triggers cells in your body to produce more collagen. As was previously mentioned, loss of collagen is one of the most significant causes of aging skin.
What are the benefits of a PDO thread lift?
The signature benefit of a PDO thread lift is that because it is so versatile, it can treat virtually any area of the face. These treatment sites include the following:
- Nasojugal lines which cause the under-eyes to have dark bags
- Nasolabial folds, also known as laugh lines
- Crow’s feet
- Undereye area
- Marionette lines, or creases that extend downward from the corners of the mouth
Another PDO thread lift benefit is that because the results are not as dramatic as the effects of facelift surgeries, Dr. Lind can combine the lift with other anti-aging procedures, such as dermal fillers.
The results of a PDO thread lift are benefits themselves. A non-surgical facelift immediately improved skin sagging after the procedure. While improvements were no longer apparent after one-year post-treatment, some results lasted between one and nine years. Younger patients have results that last up to four years, while patients with poor skin volume or elasticity see results for up to two years.
Other PDO thread lift benefits include:
- Faster alternative to facelift surgery
- Less expensive than a traditional facelift
- Minimal recovery time with the possibility of returning to work the same day
