Are you interested in doing something to improve your appearance and fight the aging process? If so, you have a lot of non-surgical options that you may wish to start with. One of the treatments we offer is the PDO threadlift. This treatment offers a variety of benefits that could help individuals who are interested in reducing sagging and wrinkled skin.

A Perfect Way to Lift the Skin

It is likely that you have read about dermal fillers and BOTOX®. These treatments definitely offer benefits to individuals who are dealing with dynamic and static wrinkles. Dermal fillers address lost facial volume and smooth out the skin. BOTOX® addresses dynamic wrinkles and can get rid of forehead lines and crow’s feet. While these minimally invasive treatments can help people fight the aging process, they do not lift the skin.

One of the most obvious signs of the aging process is having facial sagging. When a PDO threadlift is used, this problem is addressed. Not only does it provide immediate lift, it also creates a framework under the skin that will support the growth of more collagen. These things work together to give you skin that looks more youthful and healthy.

The idea behind this treatment is to create a selective inflammatory response. We want to create some type of small injury and then allow the skin to heal itself. This is something that is accomplished with a PDO threadlift. We understand how good the skin is at healing itself. When we inject the threads under the skin, we are going to create a self-healing response. This means that collagen will flood the area. Collagen is one of the basic building blocks needed to enjoy skin that is youthful, firm, and tight.

The PDO sutures placed under the skin will dissolve over time. In most cases, it takes a number of months for this to happen. Throughout this time, the skin will constantly repair itself around the threads.

What Kind of Results Should You Expect?

This non-surgical treatment can go a long way in giving you a more youthful look. One of the goals that it is going to accomplish is to help you restore the youthful shape of your face. Gravity and the aging process work together to weigh that shape down. When these threads are inserted under the skin, they will provide the scaffolding that is needed in order to maintain that youthful face shape.

Your neck and jaw are also going to benefit from the treatment. Since the threads can be inserted almost anywhere, this is an effective treatment to address jowls and sagging neck skin. These are areas that are actually almost impossible to treat with BOTOX® or dermal fillers.

Owner/Medical Director

Dr. Jackson Rhudy is a board-certified physician who has been practicing in Salt Lake since 1974. After an initial career in emergency medicine, he developed an interest in the new technologies emerging in the field of aesthetics utilizing non-surgical techniques such as lasers, Botox, and injectable fillers. He sought training from leading experts in the aesthetic field at multiple locations in the US and Europe and in 2000 he founded an aesthetic practice called Light Touch Laser Skin Care Center. It rapidly became a leading aesthetic practice in the Salt Lake City area. In 2010, he sold the practice and focused on his other endeavor, Optimum Clinical Research– a private research site that performs clinical trials on new pharmaceutical drugs. But continuing demand from former aesthetic patients led to the formation of a new aesthetic practice in July 2015. Reuniting with a former colleague, Jill Miller, they started Nuance Aesthetics—a practice devoted to providing excellence in the field of non-surgical aesthetics by offering experience and expertise with the utmost integrity. Dr. Rhudy maintains his board certification in emergency medicine and is the only physician in Salt Lake City who is board certified in laser surgery.

When Dr Rhudy isn’t in the office, he loves riding his bike up City Creek. He has always had a passion for learning and growing in the medical field which is why he spends a lot of free time researching the latest treatments and technology that keeps Nuance ahead of the curve.
