You don't always have to undergo major surgery to tighten loose facial skin. A polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift can tighten loose skin so that you'll have firmer, younger-looking skin that boosts your self-confidence.
How a PDO Thread Life is Done
After your skin has been disinfected and numbed with a local anesthetic, the beauty professional who's performing the treatment will make a tiny incision to create a small hole so that a cannula can fit through the opening. The cannula allows the dissolvable thread that's used for a PDO thread lift to be positioned correctly before the cannula is removed. The thread is inserted through the cannula into the hole and pulled to lift the skin and supportive tissues to achieve a younger, firmer look. Multiple small incisions and threads will likely be needed so that different areas of the face can be threaded, but extra precautions are taken to prevent scarring.
Treatment for Multiple Areas
Sagging skin can occur on different parts of the face, and PDO thread lift treatment can target multiple areas. PDO thread lifts are often effective in lifting and tightening the skin around the:
- Outer corners of the eyes (crow's feet)
A PDO thread lift may also be an effective treatment for sagging neck skin. If your neck skin is sagging because of age or weight loss, you can ask a beauty professional who offers this treatment to find out if a PDO thread lift will likely give you desirable results.
Promotes Natural Lifting
The threads that are used for PDO thread lifts gradually dissolve over time, and you may need fewer treatments and be able to maintain your tighter skin naturally after you've started treatment. A PDO thread lift can generate more natural collagen and fibrosis, which can help promote firmer skin by supporting and lifting the skin and underlying tissues.
A Short Recovery Period
One of the biggest advantages of a PDO thread lift over a surgical facelift is the minimal recovery period. You may see some bruising for one to two days after treatment, but you shouldn't have to limit most of your regular activities unless they cause you pain or discomfort. However, you'll want to refrain from drinking through a straw, smoking, or doing other things that cause you to purse your lips for at least the first couple of weeks following your treatment. You may also have to alter the way that you exercise and sleep for the first week or two as you recover.
A PDO thread lift may be the answer to your sagging skin problem. Once you've seen the results of your treatment, you'll likely be happy with the outcome and be glad that you chose this treatment option.
