How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last?

How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last

Is there a simple, minimally invasive procedure to tighten and lift skin, producing outcomes comparable to surgical facelifts? It almost seems too remarkable to be true. But what if we tell you there is? 

PDO Thread treatments, often known as thread lifts, provide thorough lifting and tightening that is frequently compared to a surgical facelift. Threads made of suture material are inserted just beneath the skin as part of the therapy. These threads support the skin below and produce an instant lifting effect once they are in position.

The synthesis of collagen in our bodies slows down as we get older, and facial volume also starts to decrease. It results in wrinkles, sagging, and other aging symptoms. This procedure, sometimes called a “thread lift,” can improve crepey skin, tighten up a jowl that has started to droop, or minimize the appearance of wrinkles and folds on the face. It delivers a complete facial regeneration and can make you seem considerably more relaxed and revitalized.

But how long can you enjoy the effects of a PDO thread lift? Do you need to undergo multiple treatments for the results to last? Read on and learn about this fantastic procedure.

How Does a PDO Thread Lift Work?

The area of treatment will first be cleaned and numbed when you arrive for a thread lift at Nuance Aesthetics. To have a point of reference throughout your session, your practitioner will highlight the region of concern. You will lie comfortably during therapy and not experience pain.

The threads used are polydioxanone suture trails made as the hypodermic needle that moves along just below the skin’s surface. The threads are placed in the facial regions where the skin has begun to droop due to a decrease in collagen and subcutaneous fat. The loss of this scaffolding compromises the skin’s structural integrity. PDO threads serve as tissue anchors and offer extra support at deeper levels.

One feature of this therapy that patients appreciate is that it doesn’t need a lot of downtimes. You will be able to go back to work right away after receiving therapy. The only essential need for aftercare following your session is to refrain from moving or overstretching the treatment region for at least two weeks.

How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last?

PDO threads injected into the body remain there for four to six months. Over a year after the procedure, patients might still observe improvements because they continue to promote collagen production. You may experience changes in your look months after the sutures have been removed since collagen synthesis can continue after it has been activated.

In the years after your first appointment, you may schedule occasional maintenance sessions.

What are the benefits of a PDO Thread lift?

PDO thread lifts can assist you in reversing the effects of aging and giving your skin a more youthful appearance. What motivates people to choose this surgery is listed below:

1. Tightens the skin

A PDO thread lift lifts the skin and offers the face a smoother, younger appearance by tightening sagging facial regions by providing support beneath the skin. In addition to smoothing and tightening the midface and neck, the technique can raise the brows and jowls.

2. The procedure is convenient.

The early indications of aging are something that many people desire to combat. Still, not everyone can commit to the time and bother of a demanding surgical operation. One visit is sufficient to accomplish an in-office thread lift. There is no scarring or incision. You may resume your usual schedule immediately because there is no healing time. Additionally, you won’t need to bother about making follow-up visits for maintenance or topping off.

3. Boosts Collagen

A PDO thread lift energizes face tissues and collagen fibers in the skin. The PDO threads are inserted beneath the skin, which starts the body’s healing process and increases collagen production. The PDO thread lift’s collagen infusion thickens and moisturizes the skin, making it tighter and more firm.

4. The results are continuing to improve.

The fact that this treatment provides some instant tightness soon after treatment, with outcomes continuing to increase over the following several months, is particularly appreciated by many patients. Doing this means you may avoid ever seeming like you just had work done. Over many weeks, your friends and family may have noticed that you’ve started to appear more rested and at ease, but they won’t be able to tell you precisely what has changed.

5. The results are long-lasting.

The PDO thread lift helps you seem younger by reversing the effects of age. The results may persist for one to three years.

6. Appropriate for everyone experiencing the very first sign of aging

There is no set age when people should start thinking about this therapy because everyone matures differently. Consider a thread lift as a treatment option as soon as you see early indications of aging that you want to reverse. Patients frequently inquire about whether they should postpone therapy till they are in urgent need of it.

It is typically advised that individuals seek therapy as soon as the first indications of aging in their skin appear if they are interested in receiving it. If you put off action, you could discover that more than a thread lift is required to address your issues entirely.

Are you a candidate for this treatment?

Before deciding if PDO thread lift is a good choice for you and will enable you to achieve your cosmetic objectives, we will consider several variables. We’ll start by setting up an initial appointment to see if you’re a candidate for treatment.

To decide whether this course of therapy is appropriate for you, we will review your objectives, look at your problem areas, and talk about your medical history during your first visit. 

Your suitability as a candidate will depend on a few qualifications, such as:

Your overall health: The best patients are free of autoimmune disorders such as diabetes and are in good overall health. In general, this medication is inappropriate for nursing or pregnant women.

You have healthy skin: This adaptable approach works on all skin types and tones. However, it is advantageous if the skin in the treatment region is healthy, without irritation or inflammation.

You wish to undergo a non-surgical treatment: This procedure completely rejuvenates the skin, similar to how a surgical facelift does. However, PDO threads are the ideal treatment for people who aren’t surgical candidates or don’t want to undergo surgery because they don’t require any incisions or recovery time.

Your Next Step To a Younger You

A PDO thread lift can be the answer if you want to enhance your appearance with tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin. The benefits of this minimally invasive procedure can endure for well over a year. They may lift, tighten, and add volume to the face. Make an appointment for a PDO Thread Lift right away.
