Five Benefits of PDO Threading for Sagging Facial Skin
While facelifts have proven to be a tried and true method when it comes to reducing the signs of aging in the face, not everyone can afford such a costly treatment. And even when they can, not everyone wants to deal with the extensive downtime and possible scarring that comes with these types of invasive methods. PDO threading, also known as a thread lift, is a nonsurgical skin tightening procedure that can lead to tighter, more toned, younger-looking skin in a much more timely and cost-effective manner. Nirvana Med Spa in Little Rock, AR offers this helpful treatment to men and women hoping to remove sagging and wrinkles in the middle and lower sections of the face. Before you schedule your consultation with board-certified physician Dr. Salman Hashmi, take a look at the following five benefits that can come from PDO threading.
1. PDO threading can significantly reduce the signs of aging
By utilizing dissolvable threads, PDO threading is able to raise the jowls and address loose skin and wrinkles in order to provide a more youthful face. In addition to the repositioning of the skin, our threads stimulate the body's natural production of collagen, which will help your skin look healthier and tighter. At Nirvana Med Spa, it usually only takes around 30 minutes to complete this minimally invasive treatment for our patients in Little Rock, AR.
2. There is no downtime associated with PDO threading
Unlike traditional options that require surgery, PDO thread lifts require little to no recovery. Patients are free to return to their normal lives almost immediately following the procedure. In some cases, patients may experience redness or mild swelling near the treatment area. However, these side effects are entirely expected and should resolve themselves within one to two days.
3. PDO threading can be customized to meet different needs
Different patients have different needs. Because of this, their treatment may need to be slightly altered in order to achieve their desired results. Fortunately, PDO threading can be modified using several different types of threads depending on the patient's unique goals. For example, thin mono threads can be used to restore lost volume in the face and revitalize the skin surrounding the chin and cheeks. On the other hand, patients with severe sagging in the areas of the cheeks, jowls, and neck may require much thicker bi-directional cog threads.
4. PDO threading provides almost immediate results
Many treatments will require weeks – if not months – before patients will begin to see their results. When it comes to PDO threading, you will see noticeable results as soon as the treatment ends. Your skin will look lifted and tighter, already making you look younger than just 30 minutes prior. It is important to note, however, that final results may take 2 – 3 months before they are visible. Best of all, results from thread lifts are long-lasting and are typically sustainable for at least two years.
5. Other treatments can be combined with PDO threading
Although stunning results can be attained from PDO threading alone, many patients choose to combine it with other cosmetic procedures in order to achieve the best possible outcome. This allows Dr. Hashmi to complement the treatment with another that can either further enhance the procedure or add results that cannot be achieved through a thread lift alone. This typically may include dermal fillers or other types of injectable treatments.
