Thread lifts, at one time, involved surgery
and were associated with undesirable side effects such as infections and thread breakage.
However, the thread lift procedure has drastically improved. Now thread lifting procedures today are non-invasive. While there are many different types of thread lifts, the PDO thread lift is amongst the most popular today.
The threads are made in South Korea, and this is one of the most commonly performed skin lifting procedures today.
- Instant Skin Lifting through mechanical effects
- Cellular Renewal, through Collagen stimulation, and neovascularisation to improve skin texture, fine lines and elasticity
- Skin Tightening, by contracting fat tissue
Once introduced, the threads produce 3 effects in the skin: –
About 6 months after the procedure, the PDO threads disappear through simple hydrolysis (they are absorbable). The lifted facial contours will remain for about 3-6 months more, due to the cellular rejuvenation effects. Your skin cells are stimulated to produce new collagen, and new blood vessels to improve skin microcirculation. At the same time, the PDO threads cause the fat tissue to contract, producing a skin tightening and facial slimming effect.
