PDO Mini-threads Face Lift
Thus new lifting method is based on the implantation of multiple polydioxanone mini threads. The procedure is a form of non-surgical face lift which creates a vectorial network that acts as a support for the tissue. It produces a face-lifting effect, while also promoting the production of natural collagen in your skin. By stimulating skin rejuvenation, it brings vitality, elasticity, and a brighter skin tone.
There is no recovery time, and patients can continue with their daily routine almost immediately. Unlike surgical face lifts, there are no allergic reactions or rejection from the body and skin, making it the safest option to a face lift, only without the downtime, severe pain, and recovery of a surgical lift.
WHAT ARE PDO THREADS?
PDO stands for polydioxanone, which is an extremely safe material that has a proven clinical history as it has been regularly used for suture material in heart surgery for the past twenty years. It encourages cell cohesion and is a re-absorbable sterile suture/thread.
As there is no risk of allergic reactions, side effects, or rejection from the body and skin, it is completely safe. The PDO threads produce fibrosis in the areas surrounding where they are placed., They also promote the neocollagenesis process, stimulating the creation of type one and type three collagen.
The PDO threads are also a catalyst for the production of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin (both of which keep the skin looking volumized and youthful). The body reabsorbs the threads over a period of four to eight months, and the results can last up to two years (sometimes even more).
ABOUT THE TREATMENT AND RESULTS
The treatment is very simple and fast; it takes between fifteen and thirty minutes, this means that it is carried out with local anaesthetic. A very fine needle is inserted to implant the thread into the skin.
It is clinically proven to reduce stress in the skin and slow down some of the facial signs of ageing. It also improves sagging, and gives the skin texture a more rested appearance. Once the results have been achieved, much less “maintenance” will be required with expensive anti-ageing creams, in order to keep the skin looking young and healthy.
EFFECTS OF PDO THREAD LIFTS
Cell Regeneration: promotes microcirculation in areas where threads have been placed
Brighter Skin: due to the increased oxygen given to tissues
Improves Wrinkles & Folds: collagen is reintroduced to the areas due to migration of fibroblasts
Lifting Effect: instant lifting effect created by the tension of the threads introduced
The only side effects that may happen are some redness at the initial insertion points from the implantation, and possibly some bruising.
Under the eyes
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
The threads can be used on many different areas of the face and neck.
Vertical or horizontal lines on the forehead
Loss of volume to cheeks
Naso-labial lines (nose-to-mouth lines)
Marionette lines (corner of mouth to the chin)
Sagging neck and jawline
