The versatile thread lift can also be used to improve stretch marks and acne scars as well as provide tightening of the breasts, backs of arms, and buttocks.
After about 6 months, the threads dissolve and are absorbed by the body. Meanwhile, the thread lift has been stimulating the production of one’s own collagen. Gradually, this increased collagen production begins to perform the work of the threads, yielding its own long-lasting results. The appearance and texture of the skin improve. Skin becomes thicker, tighter, and firmer, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. The PDO threads can also cause the fat tissue to contract, increasing the skin tightening effect.
Anyone in generally good health who is starting to notice the sagging and wrinkling issues of aging may benefit the most from a thread lift. It is also safer than a surgical facelift for those whose medical condition makes general anesthesia risky. Ask our specialist if a thread lift is right for you.
Unlike highly invasive surgical facelifts, thread lifts are minimally invasive. The procedure takes about 45 minutes under local anesthesia, in-office, and normal activities may be resumed right after treatment. Most people enjoy immediate results after a PDO thread lift with even more noticeable improvements after a week or two. Any bruising or swelling that may occur generally subsides within a few days. No pain, no scarring, no downtime, and no reason to wait any longer to look younger and more refreshed!
