In the past, having a threadlift involved surgery. There were also a lot of side effects such as thread breakage and infections. The PDO threadlift has changed over the years. The procedure is minimally-invasive, does not require surgery and is no longer associated with all the negative side effects of the past. There are numerous different types of threadlifts currently available, but one of the most popular is the PDO threadlift. The threads used for the procedure are manufactured in South Korea. Skin lifting procedures have become one of the most commonly performed in today’s society. This treatment was created to tighten and lift sagging skin tissue through the used of PDO or Polydioxanone threads. These threads are placed into the deepest layers of your skin. Once your treatment has been completed, you will notice a few major changes in your skin.
The first benefit is an immediate lifting of your skin. Second, you will experience a noticeable tightening of your skin. The treatment encourages collagen stimulation, leading to cellular renewal and neovascularisation. This improves the texture and elasticity of your skin while decreasing fine lines. The third benefit is a tightening of your skin triggered by contracting fat tissue. In the months after you have completed the procedure, the PDO threads will completely disappear from within your skin. This is due to a simple process called hydrolysis. It is important to note the PDO threads are absorbable. Due to the effects of the cellular rejuvenation, the lifts in your facial contours will remain for multiple additional months.
Your skin cells will have received the necessary stimulation for the production of new blood vessels and new collagen. This improves the micro-circulation of your skin. While this is happening, your fat tissue contracts due to the PDO threads. This results in both a slimming effect to your face and skin tightening. The procedure is performed by inserting PDO threads into your skin using a housing needle referred to as a cannula. The procedure is both sterile and minimally-invasive. You will be given local anesthesia to numb the area and help ensure you are relaxed and comfortable during your treatment. The cannula used to insert the PDO threads may have either a blunt or a sharp tip. Once the threads have been placed in the targeted layers of your skin, your skin is lifted upwards and anchored. The excess threads can then be removed.
The Different Types of PDO Threadlifts
The actual length of your procedure will depend on the areas you are having treated. In most cases, the treatment will require just minutes. A lot of people become confused due to the variety of PDO lifts available. There is even a new screw method available to enhance rejuvenation. The general classifications for PDO threads are barbed threads, non-barbed threads and floating threads. There are also sub-classifications for the threads.
You may have heard these threads referred to using fancy names such as heart barbs, tornado or double screw. All of these terms are used to describe one of the available thread types. There are also a wide variety of different lengths and thicknesses available for PDO threads. This impacts the effectiveness, tensile strength and quality of the treatment in addition to the price. The type of threads best suited to your specific rejuvenation and lifting needs may be chosen for you by our professional to help ensure you receive the best possible results. It is a good idea to talk to the professional about the different options available as well as the specific benefits of each during your consultation.
The treatment is extremely safe and sterile. The procedure does not cause the severe skin side effects associated with some types of fillers. The side effects including thread breakage and infections associated with the threadlifts of the past have been eliminated. This is because the threads are placed using needles as opposed to surgery and they will be absorbed by your body within a period of multiple months. It is important to ensure you receive your treatment from an experienced, well-trained and knowledgeable professional to help make certain you receive the outcome you desire. The treatment is customized according to the areas you want to have treated. A good example is lifting. This requires a combination of different lengths and thicknesses of threads. The procedure can also be customized to encompass your lifestyle needs.
The Benefits of the PDO Threadlift
One of the best benefits of this procedure is the instant tightness and firmness of your skin. The way the threads are placed within your skin provides droopy skin with an uplifted and attractive look. Once your treatment is completed, you will see a difference in the firmness and tightness of your skin. During the following weeks, your complete results will become visible. This is partially due to the time required for your body to begin producing new collagen. Once these weeks have passed, you will see younger and more attractive-looking skin. The reason for the specific placement of the threads is to help revive your lost collagen and bring it back into your skin. Collagen is classified as a protein. This is what provides your skin with strength and elasticity, makes your skin tighter and helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
PDO threads provide your skin with a natural and very uplifted appearance. The procedure is most often used for the treatment of saggy cheeks or brows. Since the treatment is customized, you can be assured your individual wants and needs will be met. It is important to understand there is nothing scary about this procedure. It is extremely sound and safe. One of the main reasons this treatment is so safe is because the PDO threads will dissolve after they have been placed in your skin. Depending on the condition and type of your skin, your body will absorb the threads within weeks. Using PDO threads is also a fast and easy way to achieve a nice lift to your face. An experienced professional does not require a lot of time to perform the procedure. The maximum length of time ever recorded for this procedure was about an hour. This is rare because the treatment generally requires just minutes.
The treatment using PDO threads heals easily without much downtime necessary. Your results will last for a long time. There have been cases where the results lasted for as long as two years. PDO threads can be used for rejuvenation, lifting, decreasing fat, volumizing and improving wrinkles, fine lines and skin texture. Each thread is used for a different purpose. There are numerous techniques, making the possibilities of this treatment nearly endless. The PDO threadlift is extremely versatile. This means almost all of the facial areas can be treated. This includes:
• Crow’s feet
• The area beneath the eyes
• Wrinkles around the mouth
• Nasolabial folds
PDO threads improve skin texture and sagging for all of the areas listed above. This is especially true for your lower face and your cheeks. These areas will see the most exceptional benefits from this procedure. This type of lift is referred to as synergistic, making it more beneficial than a lot of the other skin lifting treatments available. Your benefits from the treatment begin to show immediately due to the support your skin receives from the threads. This is how your skin is lifted into a new and more aesthetically pleasing position. Within approximately one week or so after your treatment, you skin will look more natural, tighter and younger. Your skin will continue to rejuvenate in the months after the procedure. Your skin will be smoother, firmer and have a better texture.
Depending on the type and condition of your skin, the focus may be placed on either skin lifting or skin rejuvenation during your treatment. Every individual has slightly different results. This is dependent on the combination of the technique used, the type of PDO threads placed and your skin. Even though your results will continue for several additional months, the majority of professionals recommend having another procedure at some point after the first one. This will enable you to continue enjoying your results for years.
