What is a PDO Thread Lift?

Approved by the FDA for safety and efficacy, PDO thread lifts are a simpler, quicker, less invasive and more cost effective than conventional surgical facelifts. The goal of a PDO thread lift is to lift the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while evoking a healing response that promotes collagen and elastin production. A PDO thread lift also improves neck and jawline contouring by lifting tissues into a suspended position. PDO threads come in various shapes, lengths and thicknesses with associated differences in tensile strength, efficacy, quality and cost. Once the threads are in place, your body’s healing response continually creates a gradual, ongoing improvement in skin tone and firmness. PDO threads dissolve after six to nine months, leaving an intact collagen fibrous protein matrix. A PDO thread lift is so versatile, it can be used to treat different areas of the face, including:
collagen

As you age, your body gradually produces less collagen, leading to an 80% reduction in skin thickness by about age 70.

The Role of Collagen in Aging

When you get a PDO thread lift in Fort Lauderdale, FL, this induces a healing response that causes your body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. Collagen helps support growth factors that enhance the ability of the skin to stay strong, voluminous and supple. As you age, your body gradually produces less collagen, leading to an 80% reduction in skin thickness by about age 70. A PDO thread lift helps turn back the clock by enhancing production of collagen. It reduces looseness by thickening and hydrating your skin and prevents it from getting worse by strengthening it.

Who Is a Candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?

The ideal candidate for a PDO thread lift is an individual with mild to moderate signs of aging, therefore the procedure is generally more appropriate for people in their late 30s to early 50s. The procedure is not recommended for more severe signs of aging, excessive sagging or loose skin or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Although thread lifts produce visible changes, they generally only lift the face by a few millimeters to create a more subtle and natural looking result than facelift surgery. Facelift surgery results can as long as a decade, whereas a thread lift will generally last between 12 and 36 months. Despite these limitations, a thread lift is an alternative option for patients older than age 55 who are unable to undergo facelift surgery.

Personalized PDO Thread Lifts

Even though this is a nonsurgical type of facelift, experience matters because the right number and type of thread must be used to achieve varying degrees of lift, skin tightening and cellular rejuvenation. A big benefit is that the treatment only takes 30 to 45 minutes. Before treatment starts, a topical numbing agent and local anesthetic is applied to the treatment site. While the needles used during this treatment are so fine you will not experience any pain, we offers soothing sedation if you request it. During a PDO thread lift in Fort Lauderdale, FL, Dr. Patty carefully selects the most optimal type of PDO threads, then anchors and inserts them into different layers of skin with the fine needles. Once inserted into the appropriate layer of skin, the threads act as anchors as the skin lifts upwards. Between one and 15 threads are used per section and excess threads are cut off. Most patients recover within 24 hours and maintenance procedures are generally recommended every 18 months. The threads are ultra-thin so you will not feel them under your skin.
