Non-Surgical Face Lift

Non-Surgical Face Lift

A nonsurgical PDO (Polydioxanone) thread lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to lift and rejuvenate sagging skin and tissues on the face and, in some cases, other parts of the body. Unlike traditional facelift surgery, a PDO thread lift doesn't involve surgical incisions or general anesthesia, making it a popular choice for individuals looking for less invasive options for facial rejuvenation.


**How the Procedure is Performed:**

During a PDO thread lift, a skilled practitioner uses very fine, dissolvable threads made of PDO material. These threads are inserted beneath the skin through small, virtually painless needle punctures. Once inserted, the threads serve as a framework or scaffolding for the skin, lifting and repositioning sagging tissues to a more youthful position. Additionally, PDO threads stimulate collagen production, further enhancing skin firmness and texture over time.


Barbed PDO threads, in particular, are equipped with tiny barbs along their length, allowing them to provide immediate lifting and repositioning of sagging tissues during the procedure. This creates an instant visible improvement in the contours of the face and neck.


**Procedure Duration:**

The duration of a PDO thread lift procedure varies depending on the specific areas being treated and the complexity of the treatment plan. On average, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete. Since it is minimally invasive, patients can often return to their regular activities shortly after the procedure.


**Multiple Treatments and Referral to Surgery:**

One key advantage of PDO thread lifts, including those using barbed threads, is that they can be performed multiple times if needed. This means that patients who desire ongoing rejuvenation can benefit from the procedure at various intervals as part of their long-term aesthetic maintenance plan.


However, it's important to acknowledge that for some individuals with more advanced signs of aging or significant sagging, surgery may eventually be the most effective option. At this point, patients can still undergo plastic surgery, and a referral to a plastic surgeon can be made as needed. The combination of nonsurgical and surgical approaches allows patients to tailor their treatment to their evolving needs over time.


What are the benefits of a Non-Surgical Face Lift?

1. **Immediate Lifting:** Barbed PDO threads offer immediate lifting and repositioning of sagging skin and tissues, providing instant visible results that can enhance facial contours.


2. **Collagen Stimulation:** Like other PDO threads, barbed threads stimulate collagen production, which continues to improve skin quality over the long term. This ensures that the rejuvenation effects are not just temporary but also contribute to ongoing skin improvement.
