The cosmetics industry is a multibillion-dollar sector that is rapidly expanding. Cosmetic options are no longer just for the young and beautiful, and as the world’s population ages, more people are turning to cosmetic treatments to combat the signs of aging. PDO threads lifts are currently one of the most effective cosmetic treatments against signs of aging.
Hardly anyone wants to appear elderly. It is a natural human desire to appear young and attractive. People first conceal the signs of aging with makeup or hair dye as they grow older. Wrinkles, facial sagging, and age spots, for example, cannot be concealed with makeup.
Aging symptoms may appear to be unavoidable. However, we now have several new options for effectively combating them, thanks to new treatments. PDO threads are one of these new treatments that we’ll look at today.
What Are PDO Threads?
A PDO thread lift is a slightly invasive, non-surgical skin tightening procedure. A PDO thread lift results are similar to a facelift, but you don’t have to go through surgical intervention to get back to your daily routine as soon as possible.
Polydioxanone (PDO) is a synthetic, monofilament, flexible raw material absorbed by the body via hydrolysis. Screw, cog, and mono are the three main textures of PDO threads. PDO screw threads are one or two intertwined threads that aid in the volume restoration of sunken skin parts.
The barbed threads in PDO cog threads latch into your skin and reposition and support parts of your face. Smooth sutures provide volume in PDO mono threads. These sutures also stimulate collagen production, which helps to rejuvenate your skin.
Why Consider PDO Than Traditional Thread Lift Treatments?
This treatment is used to combat the signs of aging, especially when the facial structure sags. Aren’t there other cosmetic procedures that accomplish the same thing? So, why would you use a PDO cosmetic treatment? But first, we’ll go over why your facial skin sags and how the treatment addresses it to answer those questions.
So, why does your face sag as you get older?
Why Aging Causes Facial Skin Sagging
Collagen and elastin are protein cells that hold your facial structure together beneath your skin. When you get older, your body stops constructing as many protein cells. As a result, external conditions damage the frameworks of existing protein cells, but there aren’t enough cells to substitute them.
Collagen supports your skin like a pillar supports a structure. However, when there aren’t enough, there aren’t enough pillars to keep the skin in place. As a result, the skin’s surface collapses, and you’ll notice wrinkles, fine lines, and other creases on your skin.
The entire skin eventually collapses with enough time and collagen damage, causing sagging and thinness. There isn’t much collagen left to keep it in place.
How PDO Addresses These Concerns
PDO threads will be used to lift and tighten the skin. Your provider will thread some threads and pull them tight as a sewist would. We will, however, use natural ingredients threads to reduce the effects of rejection.
Similarly, these threads will disintegrate over time. When the thread is removed, however, the skin does not loosen. The PDO threads are made of natural polydioxanone, which stimulates the skin to produce collagen once it dissolves.
Collagen is the protein that preserves your skin’s firmness and youthfulness, as previously stated. Even if PDO threads dissolve, their effects are unchanged because collagen has taken over the threads’ role in keeping your skin firm, tight, and youthful.
Is The Treatment Pain-Free And Safe?
PDO thread lifts are a quick and painless procedure. A local anesthetic is utilized to desensitize the area before the process, eliminating any pain. Mild irritation, redness, and swelling may occur after the treatment.
PDO treatments are also entirely risk-free. They have received FDA approval for efficacy and safety. Moreover, tens of thousands of treatments have been performed, with only a few reports of thread sensitivity, allergic reactions, or serious side effects. The non-surgical facelift also helps many people avoid the costs of surgery. Look no further than PDO thread lifts if you’re searching for a non-surgical way to tighten sagging skin.
The process is an instant in-and-out office visit that shouldn’t take too long. However, follow the directions carefully because you may experience swelling and bruising for the next day or two.
Avoid rubbing your face and sleeping on your side for a few days. You will also be instructed to abstain from drinking and smoking for a few weeks to get the best results.
Why Not Use Traditional Thread Lift?
Naturally, inserting threads underneath your skin doesn’t excite that many. So why not go for a traditional thread lift instead?
The only alternative for PDO is facelift surgery. Facelift surgery involves the reduction of excess skin to smooth wrinkles and tighten it to prevent saggy facial skin. Your surgeon will make an incision near the hairline, close the temples in front of each ear, and return to the lower scalp behind the ears.
They will also remove excess fat and skin and allocate it as needed. In addition, your provider will relocate some connective muscle tissue.
As you can see, a lot of work necessitates a lot of downtimes. The ramifications are more long-term, but are you willing to go under the knife and recoup for weeks? There’s nothing incorrect with that, but you should be aware that it comes with numerous risks.
How Long Will PDO Last?
The effects of PDO thread lifts are immediate and long-lasting. In six months, however, its effectiveness will noticeably deteriorate. There will be no noticeable improvements after the one-year mark.
That, however, varies from person to person. The thread lift effects last at least one year, but most people experience them for two years. However, if you are in your 20s, the thread lift could last three to four years.
PDO threads are among the most successful treatment for aging signs, especially drooping and sagging skin.
