If you’ve considered a facelift, but the idea of having surgery doesn’t appeal to you, a polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift is a safe and effective alternative. The skilled providers at Eternal Hair and Esthetics are highly trained in the technique of PDO threading and offer stunning lift and revitalization of all areas of the face and neck. To learn more, call the Totowa, New Jersey, office to schedule a consultation, or book an appointment online.
A PDO thread lift is a safe, non-surgical treatment that injects tiny threads into the deep layers of your skin to lift and rejuvenate its appearance. Polydioxanone threads are used in many surgical procedures as dissolving sutures.
PDO threads can mechanically lift sagging skin, and they stimulate the natural healing process, which increases the production of collagen, resulting in cellular renewal.
Additional benefits of a PDO thread lift include:
The threads also stimulate the production of new blood vessels, which improves circulation, promotes skin health, and enhances the look of your complexion.
First, you’ll have a consultation with one of the skilled providers to discuss your goals for treatment. Your provider will customize a plan to meet your individual needs.
On the day of your treatment, you’ll receive a local anesthetic, and your provider will use tiny needles, called cannulas, to inject the threads into the deeper layers of your skin. This usually takes 30 minutes or less to complete.
You’ll probably have some redness after your treatment, but this typically goes away in a few hours. Initial results will be visible immediately following your procedure. After 1-2 weeks, you’ll start to see a more dramatic improvement in the elasticity of your skin, with full results becoming visible around two months after your procedure.
Although the PDO threads will dissolve entirely after about six months, the collagen remodeling that has occurred as a result of your PDO thread lift should last another six months, so you won’t need another treatment until about 12 months after your initial procedure.
