PDO Thread Lift

Known as The Thread Lift, because it uses string-like threads to achieve its results, the PDO Lift works to both lift the underlying tissue and rejuvenate the skin and restore volume.

The PDO thread introduction technology is based on using the natural skin tension lines, which also causes an effect similar to a surgical facelift. Thanks to the PDO threads, we can also limit the strength of facial muscles. By introducing the PDO thread in the skin, we get immediate improvement in its appearance.

Thread lifts are a relatively new form of non surgical face lift. If your face has loosening or sagging skin and you want a tighter, fresher more youthful look, you should seriously consider this treatment.

It’s a facelift without surgery. There are no cuts and no incisions. Just injections.

We’ve been amazing at how effective it is. Our patients love the results and many of our own staff have wanted the treatment. In fact, we think this is the best non surgical facelift available and predict this will become our number one treatment.

About

PDO (polydioxsnone) is a potent synthetic fibre, consisting of one filament (mono-filament) or two filaments twisted solid (poli-filament) which dissolve after a certain time in the tissue.

Polydioxsnone is a material known ands used in medicine for many years. Polydioxsnone simulates the tissue neocolagenesis process – that stimulates the production of new collagen – the protein responsible for the tension and firmness of the skin. In addition, stimulation of fibroblasts result in stimulating the synthesis of elastin- the protein responsible for skin firmness and elasticity.

The PDO thread introduction technology is based on using the natural skin tension lines, which also causes as effect similar to a surgical facelift. Thanks to the PDO threads, we can also limit the strength of facial muscles. By introducing the PDO thread in the skin, we get immediate improvement in its appearance. After about 10-14 days, the systems begins with the body’s natural proteins (collagen and elastin). The process continues throughout the period of maintaining the threads in the body (up to 6-8 months). The resulting aesthetic effects persists typically up to 24 months.

The procedure

The procedure usually takes 30-90 minutes and is practically painless. Patients on whom I Performed the treatment, stated that the discomfort associated with the procedure is much lesser than in case when the hyaluronic acid is administered. Additionally, you can perform local anaesthesia by using an anaesthetic cream.

Then you should identify points of entry for the needle and thread input lines under the skin.

After determining the scope of the treatment, follows placement of needles into the subcutaneous tissue. Needle are placed at specific points on the face to get the most effective skin tightening effect. When you invoke the aesthetic effect, involving muscle relaxation, the threads enter deeper into the skin, directly into the facial muscles.

Immediately after the treatment, the skin might be slightly reddened and slight bruising might appear. They usually disappear within a few days.

The effects of the treatment can be seen immediately, but keep in mind that formation of new collagen starts after 10-14 days and then it really starts to show relevant effects of the treatment.
