How Non-Surgical Facelifts Work With PDO Threads

Unfortunately, the natural aging process affects us all at some point, whether we like it or not. One of the most common signs of aging in the face is loose, sagging skin. This contributes to wrinkles, folds, and a sunken appearance. 

If you’re worried that plastic surgery is the only way to restore the lifted, youthful appearance of your past, think again! With the latest advancements in aesthetic medicine, we can now noticeably rejuvenate the face without the need for scalpels, anesthesia, and lengthy recovery times. 

One exciting rejuvenating treatment to tackle sagging, aging skin is a non-surgical facelift with PDO threads. Available to patients in St. Petersburg and Tampa, PDO threads are a safe and effective way to lift, tighten, or volumize the skin.

What is a Non-Surgical Facelift With PDO Threads?

PDO threads are small, dissolvable threads that have been FDA-approved to tighten loose skin. PDO stands for polydioxanone, an absorbable suture.

During a non-surgical facelift with PDO threads, the PDO threads are positioned beneath the skin in the subcutaneous fat. Multiple types of PDO threads are available, and your provider can help determine the best option for your needs. 

Results From a Non-Surgical Facelift With PDO Threads

Once the threads are placed, you’ll notice a lifted appearance immediately. In the days and weeks following your session, these results will improve as the threads stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that strengthens, tightens, and rejuvenates the skin. 

PDO threads can produce a three-dimensional lift and volume in the cheeks, creating noticeable yet natural results for crepey skin, lost volume, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. Patients may opt for this treatment to avoid the risks, downtime, and scarring associated with a surgical facelift.
