WHAT IS PDO THREAD LIFT?
A PDO thread lift is a revolutionary new treatment in the world of aesthetics, but PDO threads themselves have been used safely for decades for various applications, like treating gynecological disorders or suturing incisions after medical procedures. When used as an aesthetic treatment, there are a few things you should know.
First, it mechanically results in instant skin lifting. Second, it contracts fat tissue to result in instant skin tightening. Third, it promotes collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles and more elastic skin.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT BEFORE TREATMENT?
Before treatment starts, we will apply a topical numbing agent and local anaesthetic to the treatment site. The needle used during this treatment is so fine it will not cause any pain. However, we provide anaesthesia to ensure you feel no discomfort during the treatment.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, your treatment will begin. The PDO threads are inserted via blunt tip needles, called cannulas, or sharp-tipped needles. Once inserted into the appropriate layer of skin, they act as anchors as the skin is lifted upwards. Then, the excess threads are cut off.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE TREATMENT?
Since PDO thread lifts are non-invasive, there isn’t a lot you need to do to prepare. However, there are some precautionary measures you can take to ensure the best results from your treatment. Here are things you should avoid one to two days before treatment:
- Omega fish oil supplements
- Chinese medicine
- Vitamin E
- High-intensity workouts
- Steam rooms and saunas
HOW IS THE TREATMENT DESIGNED?
A PDO thread lift is customized to your unique skin type, skin texture and aesthetic goals. Depending on the area you want treated, you may receive three or four carefully placed barbed threads. Different threads are used for varying degrees of lift, skin tightening and cellular rejuvenation.
WHAT AREAS CAN A PDO THREAD LIFT TREAT?
Because a PDO thread lift is so versatile, it can treat virtually any area of the face. These include the:
- Jaw line
- Naso jugal folds
- Nasolabial folds
- Crow’s feet
- Undereye area
- Marionette lines
The cheeks and the lower face/neck region are the most commonly treated. The cheeks and lower face are great regions to treat because they lend themselves so well to synergistic skin lifting treatments like Ul therapy.
