What is PDO Thread Lift?
Signs of aging begin to appear on the face as collagen production in the skin slows down while facial bone and fat diminish over time. You may start to notice thin and loose skin, which creates folds, wrinkles, and jowls. At BG Medical Aesthetics, we are pleased to offer an effective, innovative, non surgical option to treat aging skin called the PDO thread lift. This quick, minimally invasive procedure provides natural, noticeable facial rejuvenation without surgery or downtime.
How It Works
Thread lifts are a good alternative to the surgical facelift in patients who want to address saggy skin, without the downtime and hassle of a surgical facelift. Multiple fine sutures (threads), made from an FDA-approved, biocompatible material called PDO (polydioxanone), are inserted into the deeper layers of the skin along its surface. Once completely inserted, the thread is pulled back to reposition the skin and the needle is removed. The threads rejuvenate treated areas by instantly lifting and smoothing sagging skin as well as Initiating a healing response in the skin to gradually increase collagen production. The threads are absorbed by the body over 4 to 6 months while leaving behind firmer, tighter, younger looking features!
Thread Lift Candidates
Women and men, usually in their late 30s up to their 60s, who want to correct early signs of aging skin often make good candidates for a thread lift. While thread lifts may be used on most parts of the body, the areas we most commonly treat include the cheeks, neck and jawline.
For enhanced facial rejuvenation, thread lifts are often combined with other nonsurgical treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® treatments.
