Why should you choose a PDO Thread Lift?

Surgical face lifts are becoming increasingly common but did you know you can achieve the same results without the downtime and recovery needed for surgery? A PDO thread lift can smooth and tighten skin with long lasting results. But what is this treatment and why should you choose a PDO Thread Lift?

What is a thread lift?

A thread lift is a type of non surgical treatment that can lift and tighten skin to achieve stunning and youthful results. This involves using a fine specialised thread to move and reposition skin, pulling this tighter to lift and smooth areas of the skin including the neck and jowls. As a result, you can experience the results of a surgical face lift without going under the knife.

So, why should you choose a PDO Thread Lift?

There are a number of reasons why a PDO thread lift is the number one thread lift choice, including:

  • PDO material achieves a dual result
  • PDO material is fully safe
  • PDO thread lifts offer long lasting results 

A PDO Thread Lift achieves effective dual results 

The substance that PDO thread is created from is polydioxanone and it is this material that helps achieve effective and long lasting results. The PDO is effective in two different ways, with the thread and barbs anchoring the skin into position and lifting the skin for a youthful result. This works in a similar way to other thread lift types but what makes a PDO thread lift so effective is the biological response that this creates. The Polydioxanone thread actually stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and boosts this process. This means that the skin cells will experience a boost in volume, regeneration, elasticity and strength resulting in a more youthful appearance in the longer term. 

This is a safe treatment option

The polydioxanone substance has been used safely and effectively for many years in the medical and surgical field. The uses of this include:

  • suture thread
  • orthopedics
  • plastic surgery
  • cardiovascular applications
  • tissue engineering

This means that the substance has been widely tested and is incredibly compatible with the human body. This means that PDO thread lift treatment can be suitable for a wide range of people and is highly unlikely to result in a negative reaction from the body, or an allergic response. As a result, this is one of the safest thread lift options available.

A PDO Thread Lift creates long lasting results 

Not only is a PDO thread lift safe and effective but thus also creates long lasting results in two different ways. Firstly, the PDO threads themselves biodegrade safely over time and this process usually takes about 12 to 18 months. Secondly, as discussed above, the polydioxanone itself has a positive influence on the skin’s production of collagen and elastin which can allow skin to be firmer and younger looking for a long period of time. In fact, it is the loss of both collagen and elastin that causes sagging skin and hollow under eyes, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. As such, increasing the production of these two cells can result in a more youthful appearance for a longer period of time.
