Facelift surgery has been a popular aesthetic surgery procedure, since long. But for many the idea of undergoing the knife is daunting for many. Many people are not ready to take the risk while others cannot afford it. Nowadays, most of the people look for non-invasive cosmetic treatments that fit their budget.
The non-surgical cosmetic treatments offer them an opportunity to reverse the signs of ageing and redefine their facial contours and features without undergoing the surgery. This not only saves them from long recovery period but is also affordable. One of the innovative procedure which is now considered an alternative to the surgical facelift is PDO thread lift procedure.
What is PDO threadlift treatment?
PDO thread lift is an improvisation of the old thread lift technique which is used to lift the sagging and loose skin by using very fine surgical threads. The threads used for the treatment are manufactured from extra fine polydioxanone (PDO) which has been used sutures in the surgeries for closing wounds for decades. It is highly tolerable by a human body, is strong and slowly absorbs into the body. These threads also stimulate natural collagen and elastin production which smooth and firms the skin. The complications are rare from PDO threads due to which these threads are used in the cardiac surgeries.
How it works?
During the PDO threadlift procedure, the practitioner inserts the threads into the facial skin through the tiny incisions using a very fine needle. A framework of threads is formed under the skin which provides support and instantly lifts and tightens skin. The face appears firm, smooth and youthful.
The benefits of PDO thread facelift treatment continue to show up over the weeks as threads will be absorbed in the body stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This, in turn, will give a smooth and firm texture and rejuvenated appearance to the face.
Through PDO facelift procedure, forehead lines, crow’s feet, nasolabial lines, marionette lines, under eye bags and eye circles, jowls, sagging chin, neck and décolletage wrinkles can be significantly improved.
It is a highly effective non-surgical facelift treatment when performed by the expert and experienced hands and gives stunning results. The side effects of the treatment are few and temporary which include bruising, swelling, slight discomfort, feelings of tightness and mild facial asymmetry which usually subsides in few days. A topical anaesthetic is used on the treatment area to numb it and minimise discomfort during the procedure.
The results of the PDO thread lifting treatment lasts for about 2 to 3 years depending on the lifestyle habits. The treatment redefines facial contours and gives a youthful appearance to the face. The recovery takes about the week or so but the patient can instantly resume the normal routine activities after the treatment. It is a very safe and effective procedure with rare possibility of complications which administered by skilful hands. The thread lift treatment cost varies from patient to patient depending on the number of threads required for the treatment.
