Advancement in technology has now made thread lifts the go to treatment for those wishing to maintain a healthy result with a substantial lifting effect. The treatment can be tailored to individual requirements such as the mini facelift, browlift or full face. As we age the fat pads on our faces drop and this results in droopy eyelids, hollowing under the eyes, flat cheeks and jowls in addition to the obvious wrinkles that form. The PDO threadlift is a cost effective solution to these concerns. The results speak for themselves.
How do Thread Lifts Work?
Thread lifts are non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves the use of dissolvable threads to lift and tighten sagging skin. The threads are made of a biodegradable material called polylactic acid or PDO, which is commonly used in medical sutures.
During a thread lift procedure, the threads are inserted under the skin using a thin needle, and then gently pulled to lift and reposition the skin. The threads have small barbs or cones that grip the skin and hold it in place, providing an immediate lifting effect.
What is the Recovery Time?
The procedure is minimally invasive and can be performed under local anesthesia. It is typically used to address sagging skin in the face, neck, and jowls, as well as to lift and tighten the eyebrows.
The results of a thread lift are generally temporary and can last up to 24 months, depending on the type of thread used and the patient's skin type. Due to advances in technology many patients now opt for repeat thread lifts in combination with skin boosters as a less invasive and cheaper option for those who are not ready or willing to undergo surgery.
Are There Any Risks?
Like any medical procedure, thread lifts come with some risks and potential side effects. Some of the risks associated with thread lifts include:
Bruising and swelling: It is common to experience some bruising and swelling after the procedure, which usually subsides within a few days.
Infection: There is a small risk of infection at the insertion site, but this is rare if the procedure is performed by a qualified and experienced medical professional.
Allergic reactions: Some patients may be allergic to the materials used in the threads, which could cause an allergic reaction.
Migration or breakage of threads: In rare cases, the threads may move or break, which may require removal or correction.
"I am extremely happy with the results of the PDO thread lift. I've gone back for additional threads around my jowls, which is my biggest area of concern, and each time I leave feeling like my money was well spent. Its a very cheap facelift, I'm so glad I found Kirby. She is very professional and I know I'm in safe hands"
""I was a little nervous about getting a thread lift, but I'm so glad I did it. The results are amazing! My skin looks lifted and tighter, and I feel more confident than ever. Three months on and I'm still seeing improvements in my results. The procedure was quick and relatively painless, and the recovery time was minimal. I highly recommend thread lifts to anyone who wants a face lift without undergoing surgery.""
