In times past, a person had to undergo an invasive facelift procedure in order to reverse common signs of aging on the face. Things have changed recently as a result of the introduction of the PDO Threadlift. PDO sutures are designed to be broken down by the body and absorbed into the body naturally. The procedure involves implanting multiple mini-threads under the surface of the skin. Since the threads are not anchored, the skin is not pulled. Instead, they are laid out in a preset pattern. The goal is to encourage collagen to grow around the threads.
You can think of the threads in the same way you would think of a trellis that you would use for a watermelon plant to grow on in your garden. Over time, it dissolves and all that’s left is the collagen network that was built upon it. As a result, your skin becomes tight.
One of the benefits of the PDO Threadlift technique is that it is designed to target your skin. It is not designed to target your muscles or in any way distort the natural appearance of your face. It is designed to work hand-in-hand with your body to encourage you to make new collagen and improve the elasticity of your skin.
The number of threads that are used in your face during the PDO Threadlift procedure are going to vary depending on the shape and size of your face, among other factors. Each procedure is customized for the patient, so it will depend on the situation.
Most patients are very happy with the results that they get from a PDO Threadlift. It is a great option for individuals who want a little bit more than what a dermal filler can provide, but who are not ready to undergo invasive surgery. It is a very good option if you want to improve your skin’s elasticity, texture and overall appearance.
