PDO threads are a minimally invasive treatment that can help you achieve results similar to a surgical facelift. They are completely safe and biodegradable, breaking down naturally over time. Most people experience results that last 18 months or longer, with an additional boost of collagen production for two to six months after the appointment. The actual yarn will be around 4 to 6 months before it is absorbed by the natural hydrolysis process, but the results of the thread lift can last up to a year.
The Kagan Institute, with headquarters in Los Angeles and Encino, CA, offers this innovative treatment. It provides an instant lift while encouraging the growth of new collagen, helping to improve and prolong the final results of treatments for most patients. Thread lifts can be used to lift the cheeks, relieve the appearance of crow's feet, tighten the jawline, resolve crepey skin on the neck, and soften lines that form on both sides of the mouth. The best complementary treatments for your PDO thread lift depend on the results you are looking to achieve.
It is a great option for those who are concerned about more than one or two wrinkles and want to fight against early signs of aging. The right time to consider a thread lift is when you begin to see these signs and want lasting results. We use absorbable PDO (polydioxanone) threads, which have been approved by the FDA for use in lifting the skin and reducing nasolabial folds. In most cases, several threads are injected on each side of the face, but the use of more or less threads can alter the degree of elevation or the volume achieved.
PDO thread treatments offer a comprehensive lift and lift that is often associated with a surgical facelift. Final results may include firmer skin, less skin laxity, and minimized lines and wrinkles, making thread lift a viable option for most patients who may consider a facelift. It almost sounds too good to be true, but an easy and minimally invasive treatment now allows you to lift and tighten the skin with long-lasting results. PDO threads will stay under the skin for 6 to 12 months and can provide results that last 18 months or more. During this period, your skin in the treatment area will begin to appear smoother, fresher and more youthful.
