Non-Surgical PDO Thread Facelifts on Face or Neck
The treatment areas are divided into the midface (or cheeks), the lower face (or mouth corner to jaw), and the neck area below the jawline. Both sides of the face are included.
A small amount of local anesthetic is injected at the entrance and end points of the thread placements. The threads are placed by a single needle pass under the skin for each thread. These unique threads hold the tissue in place with tiny absorbable microscopic hooks. The PDO threads dissolve in 6 to 10 weeks, but the collagen it creates holds the face and neck skin in position for up to 12 months. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes and is nearly painless.
Patients can go back to work immediately after the treatment or out to dinner the same night. There may appear a sense of soreness for a day or so that Tylenol relieves. Anything that rubs or stretches the treated areas should be avoided for 10 days. For example, for 10 days no dental work should be done and the areas should not be rubbed as that could release the little barbs that are holding the tissue.
How to prepare: avoid taking any herbs, supplements, or medications that can cause you to bruise or bleed more easily for one-week prior to the procedure if it is safe to do so according to your physician.
What to expect: an immediate improvement in appearance should be visible. The results typically continue to noticeably improve for 6 weeks after the thread insertions, and last for up to 12 months. Duration of results depends on age, health, skin, and tissue quality among other things.
