The Benefits of a Thread Lift
Loose, thinning, and sagging skin is part of the natural process of aging. These things will happen no matter what at some point in your life, but there are services offered at Park Avenue Medical Center that can help. We offer the non-surgical PDO thread lift to lift the skin and add volume to the face for a more youthful appearance. There are many benefits to this technique rather than undergoing a more invasive procedure.
A PDO thread lift uses sutures made of polydioxanone to lift sagging facial skin and add volume to the midface by stimulating the production of collagen. The threads act as scaffolding to help keep the skin up and in place. Depending on the amount of treatment needed, the lift itself can take between 10 and 45 minutes to complete. Over time, the skin will lift and tighten, creating a very natural, younger-looking aesthetic.
Quick & Painless
This treatment is quick and painless. The treatment area will be numbed, and because the sutures are so small, you won’t even notice the procedure happening. The PDO thread lift requires minimal downtime, and most patients can resume their daily activities immediately after. Some patients even schedule their appointment for their lunch break!
While the PDO thread lift can stand on its own, it can also be combined with other treatments for complete rejuvenation, if desired. Skin resurfacing or dermal fillers may be used to enhance the results of your PDO thread lift once you have healed. A Silhouette InstaLift™ can also be used in combination to complement the effects of the thread lift.
The polydioxanone sutures used are biocompatible and dissolve into the skin after four to six months. The results of a thread lift can last up to one year, and periodic maintenance procedures can extend the length of your results. Patients achieve fuller, lifted skin and a more refreshed and rejuvenated facial aesthetic after undergoing their PDO thread lift.
