Over time factors like gravity, aging, smoking, sun exposure, and genetics take a major toll on our faces and bodies.
As we age, natural dessent begins and a loss of elasticity results in deepening folds; sagging and slackening of the tissue tends to pull everything down. Wrinkles and folds forms largely because levels of collagen – a major componant of the connective tissue in the skin that creates strength and flexibility- decreases over time.
Today many woman and men are taking rejuventaion procedures at a younger age, in the of hope maintaining the youthful look much longer. But they are looking for less downtime and less aggressive treatments which can help to maintain natural fitters and slow down aging. Threadlift is a minimally invasive, short recovery technique that shaves off years from our faces. A threadlift is an innovative facial rejuvenation procedure designed to gently elevate sagging brows, jawline, cheeks, lift and improve neck, abdominals, triceps area as well as inner thigh .
PDO threadlift was been founded by scientists in South Korea, in 2009. Based on years of medical trials they have found that PDO threads in combination with acupuncture, visually improved tone and texture of the tissue, as well tightening muscles and reversing lost volume. Threads are made of a material called Polydioxanone, in short called PDO. It has over a decade long safety track record in surgeries and wound closure. PDO threads have been used for over 6 years in orthopedic surgery (frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, cosmetic skin rejuvenation). The PDO threads can very effectively strengthen the contour of the face, reduce roundness and lift sagging skin.
Areas that can be treated:
- Upper and lower cheeks
- Foreheads (brown lift)
- Naso-labial folds
How the treatment works?
Re-defines facial contours and induces collagen production creating a lifting effect lasts for up to 2 years. The threads will form an integrated support structure for the tissue of the face due to collagen synthesis. The lifting effect is at its peak 6 months later when collagen has formed around the threads.
What happens during treatment ?
Topical anesthetic will be used to numb area for approximately 30 minutes. The PDO thread will be introduced using cannula or micro-needle in the required area.
PDO Therapy is a tailor made treatment which can be adjusted to your requirements at any time. It works great in combination with fillers and botox.
When will Patient start seeing results?
There is an immediate improvement seen after treatment with a visible lift in treated area. This will improve over a period of 2-6 months as new collagen grows between the threads and gives further lift and tightening to the skin. The PDO threads gradually dissolve over about 6 months but the resulting lift remains.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment time depends on many factors and size of treated area, but can take between 30-60 minutes.
There is minimal downtime and no general anesthetic risk. The specialized needles all small areas to be tackled effectively. As there are no incisions, stitches are not required and scarring is unlikely.
