Non-Surgical Facelift with PDO Thread Lift
The PDO Thread Lift at Abloom Med Spa in Glendale, Arizona, is one the most effective ways to lift the loose skin without surgery.* As we age, the effects of gravity become more noticeable on our faces, especially as our facial support structure weakens and we lose facial fat. The areas that are most commonly affected are the eyebrows, areas around the eyes, the cheeks, the jowls and the neck – resulting in a more square-shaped and potentially, older-looking face.
Traditionally, most people would think Facelift, since non-invasive treatments have been so limited. However, now there is an effective nonsurgical option, called PDO Threadlift, that can lift, contour and suspend the sagging tissues on the face, neck and the body, especially for those that need only minimal to moderate rejuvenation and/or for those that do not wish to undergo surgical intervention.* In rare cases, surgery may still be the most effective option.
What are PDO Threads?
PDO Threads are hypodermic needles preloaded with a synthetic PDO absorbable suture. PDO (polydioxanone) sutures are surgical sutures that are used to perform cardiac surgery. All sutures are FDA-approved and PDO sutures are one of the safest materials that can be used in the body.* Your skin will fully absorb the PDO Thread within 4 to 6 months without leaving any scar tissue.*
While the sutures are underneath the skin, your skin reacts, creating a “selective inflammatory response” producing collagen and creating a longer-lasting result.*
This principle is behind many aesthetic procedures (such as fractioned lasers, skin tightening treatments and micro-needling). Healthy skin is excellent at repairing itself, and when inserting the PDO Threads underneath the skin to lift the loose skin, the skin heals itself by creating new collagen naturally!*
Who is a good candidate?
For the right candidate, PDO Threads can provide a pleasing, natural rejuvenation of the face with the benefit of no general anesthesia, rapid recovery and very minimal cost compared to a facelift or a neck-lift.* PDO Threads can also be combined with other procedures such as Injectable Fillers, and Micro-needling, just to name a few!
Ideal candidates for thread lifts include:
Patients with minimal signs of aging who need just a small to moderate lift. Good candidates are those patients who are starting to see some droopiness of the brow, cheeks, jowls and/or neck and would like to see a lift effect, but do not want the risk, scars, or recovery of a real browlift, facelift, or neck-lift operation.
Patients who have had some relapse from a previous plastic surgery procedure such as a facelift or neck lift.
People who do not wish to undergo a surgical facelift or neck-lift for prolonged recovery and expense.
