As the body ages, the skin loosens and sags, including that on the forehead, eyes, and lips. Unfortunately, this can cause your face to look older than your real age. Thankfully, there is a treatment available that can help your skin regain what has been lost during the aging process.
Originating in South Korea, the PDO Thread Lift is a minimally-invasive treatment which uses threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO) to lift and tighten loose and sagging facial skin. The treatment can remove or reduce wrinkles and improve the skin's texture, creating smoother and younger-looking skin. To learn more about PDO Thread Lift, call (213) 320-3626 or contact us online.
A PDO Thread Lift is best suited for someone who is between 40-70 years of age who has wrinkles and pronounced facial lines that make them look older than they really are. It is also well-suited for individuals who:
The PDO Thread Lift procedure will usually take about 15-30 minutes. During your appointment with the healthcare specialist, you will first be given a topical anesthetic to reduce any possible pain, and the injection sites on your face will be marked with a white pencil.
The areas of the face that the treatment can be used on include:
The specialist will then make a tiny entry in the skin near your ear, and a needle (cannula) will hold and guide the thread through the entry point and into the different layers of your skin. This process will be done several times until your desired results are achieved.
Polydioxanone (PDO) is proven to be one of the most biocompatible materials in the medical industry. HD-PDO
threads are a new range of absorbable surgical suture, specifically designed for nonsurgical treatment of the face and body.
Our facility in Italy has developed a novel production process that is patented. By adjusting temperature and pressure, the porosity and crystallinity of the polymer are greatly reduced and the result is High-Density HDpdo. This technique creates extended duration and solid tensile resistance as opposed to typical HD-PDO threads. This diminishes the need for injectable anesthesia and the use of thicker more painful threads.
There may be some slight bruising and swelling due to the injections. However, recovery from the procedure takes only 2-3 days to a week, and you can return to work the same day. Due to its non-invasive nature, the procedure will not leave behind any scars. However, you should avoid any dental work for about 2 weeks afterward, and strenuous activity for 2-3 weeks afterward. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience more serious - though rare - side effects, such as an infection or nerve damage.
The HD-PDO threading provides instant results, with optimum results appearing after about 3 months. The HD-PDO threads will stimulate your skin cells, and cause new collagen and blood vessels to form around the threads. Also, the threads cause the fat tissue to contract, tightening the skin on the face. The results of this tightening and rejuvenation process include:
After about 6-8 months, the HD-PDO threads will harmlessly dissolve, but they will leave behind a prolonged rejuvenation effect that will last about 2-3 years.
Although it's a natural part of the aging process, there is no reason why your skin should make you feel older than you are. If you want to rejuvenate your lost skin collagen and improve your lost skin tone and texture, the HD-PDO Thread Lift is the treatment for you!
