This revolutionary treatment is the new non-surgical facelift that addresses loose and sagging skin.
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads that are used in the treatment are similar to those used in medical suturing. The threads are placed in strategic areas in the subcutaneous layer of the skin to lift and support tissue while simultaneously encouraging collagen production. Four to six months after treatment, the threads will naturally dissolve but the results will remain for a year or more.
Our main focus for PDO threads will be the neck and jowl area. However, we have also found that they are quite effective for brow lifting and jawline contouring. After just one treatment our clients experienced lift and an increase in collagen / elastin which also improved skin texture as well as support.
PDO threads can also be used for anything that needs texture (such as the lower face, crow’s feet, neck, chest, etc.,) or can be used to pop up things like glabella lines (the “11’s” in between the eyebrows), oral commissures, and nasolabial lines – perfect for those who are filler shy.
The treatment is done with local anesthesia so you can do it without interrupting your regular life routine. Thread lifts are safe and have a short recovery time. They are ideal for those who are keen to stay ahead of the aging process, for people who cannot have surgery for medical reasons, or for those who are not ready for a full surgical facelift.
