Gone are the days when a surgical facelift was the only way to address facial skin laxity. A new, improved, and FDA-approved facelift alternative, called the PDO thread lift, is the noninvasive way more and more adults are addressing pesky wrinkles. The PDO thread lift is an increasingly popular way to tighten mild to moderate sagging in the cheeks, brows, and neck. It can also treat virtually any other area of the face, such as the undereye area, the inner eyebrows, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, jawline, and forehead. It is a popular choice for those who want to improve the appearance of wrinkles, but don’t want to go under the knife, for any number of reasons, but usually because of the time- or cost-commitment of doing so.
How the Minimally Invasive PDO Thread Lift Works
This effective, nonsurgical facelift alternative is appropriate for many adults who are willing to have some injections and want to achieve an immediate lift of their facial contours without having to take the surgical route. A PDO thread lift is done using polydioxanone (PDO) threads in the treatment areas, which are placed under the skin through a small needle or cannula. No incisions are involved in the procedure. The PDO threads remain under the skin until they eventually dissolve, spurring the body to naturally produce more collagen to tighten the skin. The threads also anchor the skin and lift it upward.
Although this procedure has received plenty of glowing reviews, many still remember the original version of the thread lift that came out in the late ‘90s, it has improved by leaps and bounds since then. It has far fewer side effects and produces a subtle but visible lift of the facial skin. Unlike the procedure performed in the 1990s, threads are now absorbable, minimizing any side effects of the PDO thread lift.
Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics Goes the Extra Mile to Satisfy Our Patients
We want our patients to have optimal cosmetic results. That’s why we may also recommend radiofrequency skin tightening technology to further boost collagen growth and enhance the outcome of your PDO thread lift. To further enhance the PDO thread lift, your doctor may also recommend using fillers to complete your transformation. Patients who undergo the PDO thread lift can expect the threads to dissolve under the skin within about 9 months. We encourage patients to follow up with our office within 9 months of their first PDO thread lift procedure to maintain and continue collagen growth production.
