You don’t have to go under the knife to get tighter skin. At Cutis Medical Aesthetics, Joohee Lee, MD, offers polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift treatments as an alternative to surgical facelifts. If you want tighter, more youthful-looking skin without an invasive procedure and extended recovery period, call the office in Costa Mesa, California, or book your PDO thread lift consultation online today.
Long before aesthetics experts started using PDO threads for non-surgical facelifts, surgeons used them for sutures. They still choose threads made from polydioxanone because they don’t create any scar tissue, and they safely dissolve in the body over time.
Eventually, aesthetics professionals realized that these threads could do more than close incisions. They saw the potential to use these threads, placed under the surface of the skin, to produce a lifting and tightening effect.
Aesthetic PDO threads differ from surgical PDO threads in one significant way. The PDO threads Cutis Medical Aesthetics uses have small barbs. When placed under the skin, these barbs anchor the thread in place, lifting the surrounding skin.
During a PDO thread lift, your provider places as many PDO threads as necessary to give you the lifted tightened skin you want. They can place these threads virtually anywhere on your face or neck, giving you a means to:
- Eliminate sagging jowls
- Restore the natural contours of your face
- Lift drooping eyebrows
- Minimize facial folds like nasolabial folds
- A PDO thread lift gives you the power to turn back the clock.
Once you decide where you want the PDO threads to best achieve your cosmetic goals, the actual placement of the PDO threads is a quick, comfortable process. There’s no downtime, either. You can head to the next activity on your agenda immediately after your PDO thread lift at Cutis Medical Aesthetics.
Within about six months, your skin absorbs the PDO threads. But your results don’t dissolve along with the threads. When your provider inserts the threads, the act of placing them under the surface of your skin stimulates the production of collagen. This protein keeps your skin tight and smooth.
By the time your PDO threads dissolve, a new network of collagen is in place to maintain your results. You can enjoy the effects of your PDO thread lift for years.
If a non-surgical facelift interests you, don’t hesitate to call Cutis Medical Aesthetics or schedule an appointment online today to learn more about PDO thread lifts.
