What is PDO Threading & What can I expect from the PDO Thread Lift Procedure
Over the years, you may notice changes in your skin. For example, you may find that your facial skin is no longer as firm and youthful as it once was. Due to unprotected sun exposure, genetics, and aging, our skin may need a little help to look its best. While the process of aging cannot be stopped, there are treatments for you to consider when you are seeking skin renewal and loose skin treatment that is nonsurgical. Aleta Sloan of United Medical and Aesthetics will often recommend the benefits of undergoing specific therapies such as the PDO thread lift.
WHAT IS PDO THREADING?
PDO threading is a specialized process. An experienced provider will use dissolvable stitches and insert them into the skin to lift and tighten problem areas to reduce skin laxity. These threads also stimulate collagen production, improving the skin much longer than alternative treatments. It is a nonsurgical option for patients who want to renew their skin’s appearance and reduce laxity and sagging that may contribute to an aged appearance.
WHAT CAN NONSURGICAL THREAD FACELIFTS ADDRESS?
The PDO thread lift can be customized to your unique needs and skin care goals. Some of the most common issues addressed with this treatment include:
- Laugh lines
- Marionette lines
- Lines under the bridge of the nose
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Undereye hollowness
- Jowls and neck
- Cheeks and lower face area
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE PDO THREAD LIFT PROCEDURE?
Before our professionals perform the treatment, the skin is prepared. Our team will thoroughly cleanse the skin to remove oils and makeup and then apply an anesthetic cream and inject a local anesthetic to ensure patient comfort. Needles are preloaded with PDO threads inserted into the targeted treatment area. As the needle comes out of the skin, the PDO threads remain to hold the skin and correct skin sagging and laxity.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PDO THREADING?
- Improved skin elasticity
- Enhanced skin texture and tone
- Subtle lifting of the skin
- Improved facial contours
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF PDO THREADING?
Some of the side effects that might occur after the treatment are often minimal and quick to resolve and may include:
- Mild pain and discomfort
