If you’re concerned with the signs of aging, you’re not alone. And if you’re aware of the facelift procedure but don’t think it’s the right time, don’t want to go “under the knife,” or can’t afford such an extensive procedure, you’re also not the only one to have these concerns! At Beverly Hills Sculptress in Beverly Hills, CA, we offer PDO threading as a fantastic option for those who want the results of a facelift without the pain, hassle, and expense.
About PDO Threading
The term “PDO” refers to what makes up these threads: polydioxanone. This substance has been in use for years in the surgical realm where it’s used for sutures. It’s known to be perfectly safe.
The PDO process simply uses these threads to lift underlying tissues of the skin, which tightens the skin physically. However, this is only the first step to PDO threading!
This initial tightening process does something amazing: it stimulates your body to naturally produce more collagen. The collagen acts as a scaffolding that produces a more youthful skin texture and keeps the skin firmly anchored to the fat and muscle beneath. This means fewer wrinkles, better texture, less sagging, and an overall more youthful appearance.
The Threading Process
It all starts with a simple injection of local anesthesia that will numb the area so you’re perfectly comfortable. We then make very small, careful injections and use these spots to draw the threads through, lifting the skin. Most of the work takes place beneath the skin, and the whole process takes just fifteen to thirty minutes.
The threads provide initial lift and tightening; then they slowly dissolve over time. As the threads dissolve, collagen and fresh, stronger tissue take their places. It takes about three to six months for the threads to completely dissolve, and by the time they do, you’ll be excited by the younger and healthier skin you see.
Cellular rejuvenation continues as long as the threads are under the skin (and for quite a while afterward), and many people can get by with just a bi-annual touch-up treatment to maintain their fantastic results.
Is PDO Threading Worth It?
This is a great treatment for just about any healthy person who is interested in rejuvenating their look but who doesn’t want to undergo an invasive procedure like a full facelift. If you’ve already had a facelift, PDO threading can be a great way to extend and improve your results for many years beyond what they would normally be.
