Facelift surgeries can help improve the structure of your entire face and make you look years younger. Surgeons can remove loose skin, remove excess fat, contour your face, and relax the skin to reduce sagging. While these are all great benefits, cosmetic surgery can be painful and have serious side effects. Many people want the benefits of a facelift without having to go through the invasive, expensive process of a rhytidectomy. That’s why we here at Wellness Center of Greater Cleveland offer PDO thread lifts, otherwise referred to as non-surgical facelifts. But what exactly is a PDO thread lift and can it give me the same results as a surgical facelift? Hopefully, Aglow Aesthetics can answer that for you.
A PDO thread lift is a cosmetic procedure used to lift sagging skin and naturally contour the face. The benefits from PDO thread lifts last for about 6 months to a year. Before the procedure, we suggest you stay from alcohol and tobacco for at least 5 days. This will reduce any bleeding and bruising so that your recovery goes smoothly.
During the procedure, the medical professional will first apply a gentle cleanser to your face and apply a local anesthetic. A small device called a cannula will be inserted into your face. Next, your medical professional will anchor the thread and gently remove the cannula. After making sure the thread is in place, your doctor will send you home. The local anesthetic will ensure your PDO thread lift is painless.
While you’re recovering, you may experience some slight bruising and swelling for up to 48 hours. For 5-7 days stay away from alcohol, makeup, smoking, and exercising. Your medical professional will provide you with all of the information you need for proper healing, aftercare, and recovery. The amazing results of your thread lift will last for up to a year and a half!
There are two types of threads used for this treatment, polylactic acid threads, and polycaprolactone threads. These sutures begin to break down in your body after 6 months and are used to trigger the healing response in your face. Thread lifts are much safer and more affordable than surgical facelifts. Instead of removing the client’s skin, the thread lift uses temporary sutures to lift the skin. PDO thread lifts also encourage collagen production which in turn increases skin elasticity, prevents wrinkling, and improves dry skin.
PDO thread lifts are of course meant to treat your face. They can benefit areas including your jaw, neck, eyes, and cheeks. To enhance your lift results, we recommend you look into getting dermal fillers as well for a more dramatic change in appearance. The combination of these treatments can make it look like you got a surgical facelift if that’s your goal.
A good candidate for a PDO thread lift is anyone in their thirties to early fifties who are showing signs of aging. It’s also a good option for anyone who can’t have a surgical facelift for medical reasons such as high blood pressure or cardiovascular disease. There are numerous benefits of a PDO thread lift including:
• Increased collagen production
• Reduces wrinkles
• Eliminates fine lines
• Contours your face
• Softens your skin
• Lifts sagging skin
Overall, thread lifts can make you look younger, healthier, and more radiant than ever!
