While facelifts are a highly effective method for reversing signs of aging in the face, they are not the only option available. Some patients may be looking for a non-surgical option, as surgery can come with a recovery period that the patient might not have the time for. Naturally, patients wonder if there are any other treatments that can help them achieve their aesthetic goals without leaving any scars or requiring a lot of downtime.
What is a PDO thread lift?
A PDO thread lift is a procedure that utilizes specialized dissolvable threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). The threads are placed deep inside the facial skin by way of a thin blunt tipped cannula. Once these threads have been inserted into the skin, it lifts the skin to a more youthful position, creating a tightening effect. This process eventually leads to an increase in collagen production, and patients experience fewer wrinkles down the line.
