Will My PDO Thread Lift Last Over A Year?
If you are like millions of middle-aged men and women across the country, the early signs of aging may be starting to rear their ugly heads. From thinning hair to stubborn fat, time can certainly take its toll on our bodies, but our faces seem to get hit the hardest. Without a doubt, facial lines and wrinkles are one of the earliest and most frustrating signs of aging to appear. While cosmetic surgery offers a reliable solution for facial aging, you may not be quite ready – or willing – to go under the knife just yet. The experienced team of aesthetic experts at JEM Medspa is proud to offer PDO thread lifting as an exciting nonsurgical facelift alternative for patients who are hoping to turn back the clock and achieve stunning, long-lasting results. Discover the benefits of getting a PDO thread lift in Orland Park or Elmhurst, IL, and find out how long you can expect to enjoy your fresh new look.
What is a PDO thread lift?
The PDO thread lift (sometimes called a “lunchtime facelift”) is an innovative facial rejuvenation procedure designed to give you a smoother, firmer complexion without the need for invasive surgery. Instead, PDO thread lift involves the insertion of tiny, dissolvable threads underneath the skin’s surface to gently lift and tighten the face while simultaneously stimulating collagen growth.
What does a PDO thread lift do?
As we age, our body’s supply of collagen and elastin – two essential components of healthy, youthful skin – diminishes. At the same time, the rate of new collagen production rapidly declines. Combine this with gravity, sun damage, stress, diet, and other factors, and you are likely to be left with lines, wrinkles, and drooping skin. Enter the PDO thread lift! Not only does PDO thread lifting physically lift and tighten the skin, but it also promotes the production of new, healthy collagen fibers to further enhance your look over time. If you are frustrated by any of these common signs of facial aging, a PDO thread lift may be right for you:
- Drooping jowls
- Sagging cheeks
- Droopy jawline
- Smile lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Crow’s feet
- Lines and wrinkles around the eyes
Does PDO thread lifting hurt?
During your PDO thread lift at either of our convenient locations in Orland Park and Elmhurst, one of our aesthetic experts will begin by applying a local anesthetic – or numbing cream– to your face. While most patients tolerate thread lifting well, we are committed to maximizing your comfort during the procedure. Once your face is numb, we will insert tiny, dissolving threads into the targeted areas. The entire procedure can typically be completed in about 30 minutes or less, and you’ll be free to return to work, home, or social activities almost immediately afterward. The majority of patients experience minimal – if any – side effects, which may include mild swelling or redness at the insertion sites. These symptoms should subside within 1 – 2 days, at which time you’ll be able to fully appreciate your youthful new look!
How long does a thread lift last?
Believe it or not, the results of a PDO thread lift usually last for at least 12 – 18 months before a repeat procedure may be needed. With proper aftercare and complementary anti-aging treatments, you can actually extend the life of your thread lift even further! To preserve your PDO thread lifting results for up to two years, use these helpful tips:
- Eat a healthy diet
- Stay hydrated
- Avoid sun exposure
- Wear sunscreen
- Adhere to a regular skin care routine
- Consider cosmetic injectables and other facial rejuvenation treatments
