Do you need more convincing? Wait until our experts here at Encore MedSpa share how PDO threads can change you for the best. Check out this blog post and see the benefits of PDO threads to your treatment.
PDO Thread Lift at Encore MedSpa
PDO Threads are a great alternative to facelifts, neck lifts, and other surgeries that tighten the skin. This procedure lifts the skin with little pain and recovery time. PDO threads are absorbable sutures that are flexible and last a long time.
The treatment starts with a topical anesthetic that is usually put on the skin before a PDO thread procedure to make it as painless as possible. A long cannula is used to set the threads under the skin. The process of threading is done again and again until the desired lift is reached.
Even though the threads make the skin tighter, they can’t fix very loose skin. Most of the time, the PDO Thread treatment will take about two hours. After that, you can go right back to your normal activities.
The good news is that it only takes 6–9 months for the threads to dissolve. The collagen the skin makes speeds up cellular renewal, making the skin smoother, tighter, and more youthful.
The PDO Threads
PLA and polycaprolactone are used to make PDO threads (PCA). PDO threads have been used in surgeries since the 1980s, making them the oldest. They are made of colorless polyester that breaks down after about six months in your body.
When these sutures are in your skin, they tell cells called fibroblasts to make more collagen. The protein collagen gives your skin its shape and flexibility. Collagen loss is one of the main reasons why skin ages.
Again, the PDO Thread Facelift is a non-invasive way to help eliminate the look of sagging, loose skin. Thread facelifts are the best way to look younger without having surgery. Not only does it not require general anesthesia.
But it also takes less time to heal and costs much less than other facelift or neck lift procedures.
This method can fill in a fold and pull and tighten the skin around the neck or brows.
Your skin will respond gently to the threads, and over time, it will start to heal around the suture. You can use PDO Thread to make you look younger in different parts of the face, such as the cheeks, the neck, the area between the eyebrows, the forehead, the mid-face, the lower face, and the upper face.
Other than these details, here are the benefits that you can gain.
Always Best For Long Term
In addition to lifting the skin right away, the part of the dissolvable threads that work to make new collagen is also at work. This gives the skin a fuller and more youthful look that lasts for about a year.
Saying Goodbye to Fine Lines!
Threads smooth out fine lines and wrinkles because they cause the body to make more collagen.
Our Paris Lift treatment uses PDO mechanical threads to move and support sagging skin caused by age. During the treatment, we put mechanical threads that break down into your deep skin layer.
Because the thread is made of a polymer that breaks down over time, your body slowly absorbs it. It naturally stimulates collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to give the skin a more lifted, younger, and longer-lasting look.
Facelift surgery has a long recovery time. Usually, it takes about a month to recover from surgery, but this isn’t the case with the Paris Lift. Only about two to three days of rest are needed after our treatment.
Young & Plump Skin
Again, threads naturally tighten your skin because they cause new collagen to form. This will help reduce any sagging in your face.
How Does AfterCare Work?
Note that if the threads are placed correctly, they shouldn’t be visible after the treatment. However, there will be some swelling around the line for 24 to 48 hours. Once that’s done, there are no threads that can be seen.
Taking care of your threads after you’ve put them down will help them stay in place. Still, only work out for 48 to 72 hours after getting threads on your face or body. You can do makeup and skincare right away, but everything done to the skin must be rubbed in or put on in the direction of the lift so that threads don’t get moved.
After about two weeks, the threads have healed in place. You will no longer feel them or be limited by their presence.
Risk and Side Effects
Even though the downtime is short, there are some minor short-term side effects. Bruising and swelling are the most common signs, but that’s all the signal to get better.
A temporary dimple in the skin can also happen, but it will go away after five days. However,
because using thread lifts on the body is off-label, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t know how to label them. It’s essential to find a board-certified doctor with a lot of experience.
