PDO Thread Lifts are increasingly more popular among individuals who want to correct sagging skin. It’s an effective alternative for those who want a face lift, without the enormous price tag of extensive surgery. How is the procedure performed and is a PDO Thread Lift right for you?
How PDO Thread Lift Works
We use these threads in two different ways:
- Smooth threads are inserted vertically and horizontally by means of a cannula. The mesh pattern of the threads serves as the foundation for new collagen production as your skin reacts to the sutures by repairing itself around them.
- Barbed threads are used to produce immediate and dramatic results. The threads are inserted under the skin and grip the skin underneath. When these threads are pulled, they tighten the skin from within, resulting in an instant lift. Again, collagen production is stimulated as the skin heals itself around the threads.
The PDO Threads will dissolve on their own. Currently PDO Threads Lifts are used to correct:
- The Eyebrows
- The Cheeks
- The Chin
- The Breasts
- The Butt
- The Jaw
Are There Side Effects?
As with all procedures that involve an injection through the skin, a PDO Thread Lift poses some risks. The most common being infection, bruising, swelling, and tenderness. PDO Threads are safe and hypoallergenic.
