If you are looking for a non-surgical way to combat some of the signs of aging, it is likely that you have heard about the PDO threadlift. This is a non-surgical treatment that provides a little bit of lift as soon as the threads have been put in place and then provides the framework to help your skin produce more collagen. This treatment will help individuals who are dealing with fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of facial volume.
Is the Treatment Safe?
One of the biggest concerns that people have when it comes to using any type of cosmetic treatment is the safety of it. We are happy to tell you that having a PDO threadlift is completely safe. In addition to being used for multiple years here in the United States, it is a treatment that has been used all around the world for an even longer period of time.
The threads that are used during the treatment have actually been used for decades for a variety of medical purposes. They are often used in connection with heart surgery. These threads are going to dissolve over time. In most cases, it takes four to six months for them to completely dissolve.
How the Treatment Can Benefit You
Many have described the PDO threadlift as a non-surgical facelift. It provides many of the benefits that a person would have with a surgical facelift but without the need for a person to undergo surgery. It addresses many of the issues that a person would have addressed with a traditional facelift. It is especially good at addressing issues in the mid-face area. It will help to improve the volume under the skin, which will reduce facial sagging and wrinkles.
It is common for our clients to have the idea that the main purpose of a PDO threadlift is to lift the skin. It is true that a little bit of lift will be provided after all of the threads are put in place. However, the results of the treatment are not going to be seen immediately. The main purpose of this treatment is to create a framework under the facial skin where more collagen will grow. Collagen is an essential building block when it comes to having youthful and attractive skin.
