Non-Surgical Face Lift
Dubbed by some as the ‘lunch hour lift’, the PDO thread non-surgical face lift is a relatively new treatment in aesthetic cosmetic treatments. A minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in as little time as one hour, a PDO thread face lift is an excellent option for those who want the results of a surgical face lift without the downtime and high financial cost typically associated with surgery.
How is a PDO Thread Non-Surgical Face Lift Performed?
PDO threads are implanted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small needles preloaded with the threads. Although the PDO threads remain in the skin, they are invisible and not palpable.
Insertion of needles into the skin causes ‘micro-injuries’ which stimulates greater collagen synthesis and tissue contraction. 6-8 months following implantation, the threads begin to be absorbed into the body, stimulating the natural regeneration of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production.
How Long Does a PDO Thread Non-Surgical Face Lift Take?
A PDO thread non-surgical lift procedure can take as little as one hour, but the total time is dependent on the number of threads used and the areas being treated.
Results of a PDO Thread Lift
The PDO thread non-surgical face lift provides greater definition and lifting to the face, combatting signs of ageing and improving the general appearance of the skin. Although some of the effects of a PDO thread lift appear immediately, maximum results can be expected 6-8 months following treatment.
The initial increase in collagen results in a subtle but effective lift. As the threads are absorbed they stimulate the production of more collagen as well as elastin. The result of this is greater support for sagging skin, which helps to increase skin density and restore firmness to the skin. The production of hyaluronic acid helps to improve general skin quality. Improvements to skin metabolism, and blood and lymphatic circulation can also be seen, increasing skin firmness.
The overall results of a PDO thread non-surgical face lift are a more youthful appearance, with significant improvements in skin firmness and smoothness, as well as reduced laxity, folds and jowls. The collagen regeneration continues over time, working to improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds. The lifting effect reaches its peak at 6-8 months and can last up to 3 years.
PDO Thread Lift Aftercare
Some mild swelling and bruising is expected after treatment, but this generally settles quickly. Patients will usually be able to continue with everyday activities immediately after treatment.
The Benefits of a PDO Thread Non-Surgical Face Lift
Clients are increasingly seeking PDO threads lifts as they can expect to achieve results comparable to a surgical facelift without having to incur the associated downtime, financial burden and risks of a general anaesthetic. Following treatment, clients have reported extremely positive results:
“The sagging of my lower face had bothered me for years, but I’ve never been brave enough to have a surgical facelift. The PDO thread lift was a great option for me and I’m delighted with the results. I look and feel so refreshed and rejuvenated!”
“The treatment took hardly any time at all and the immediate results looked fantastic! My appearance has continued to improve over the months following treatment… I would definitely recommend the PDO thread lift.”
How long do the Results of a PDO Thread Lift Last?
The lasting power of a thread lift depends on the age of the patient and how much sagging the thread lift has corrected. Sagging will return over time, but doctors have reported results lasting up to 3 years. There is also the option of having additional threads inserted to prolong the effects of PDO thread treatment.
