As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity and wrinkles start to form. While dermal fillers can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, they are not a long-term solution. A PDO thread lift is an effective non-surgical technique that helps reduce facial wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, contour cheek areas and tighten the jawline. The procedure results in a natural and rejuvenated look, giving a fresher and more youthful appearance that is effective for up to two years and can be easily repeated when needed or combined with other lifting and rejuvenating procedures. The forehead, the double chin, the area under the eyes and the eyebrows are all parts of the face that can be considered for a thread lift.
You can choose to target only one area or multiple areas at a time, which increases the cost. The procedure can range from £800 to £2,400, depending on how many threads are needed. It is important to understand that while no stretching technique can produce permanent results, facelift surgery will generally produce longer lasting results than a thread lift. PDO threads are made up of threads of natural collagen fibers that are used to lift and reposition sagging or drooping areas of the face to achieve an invisible facelift. It is quite rare for the thread lift to break a thread as long as you follow the aftercare instructions.
Compared to dermal fillers, which last up to four months per procedure, PDO thread lifts are a better and longer lasting solution. The latest thread from APTOS can last more than 3 years, as they not only lift the skin but also promote collagen growth. The results of facelift surgery can last up to a decade, while a thread lift will usually last one to three years. These threads are anchored to the skin, allowing it to tighten more and stimulate the body to begin to heal and produce more collagen. While you will have instantly visible results from the PDO thread lift treatment, all the benefits are visible after 6 to 12 weeks, when your body has had time to regenerate and produce new cells. Lastly, because PDO yarns are softer on the skin, more threads are used during treatment than a Silhouette Soft thread lift.
With this in mind, make sure your doctor is exceptionally qualified and experienced in thread lifts. A PDO thread lift is an FDA-approved procedure that uses soluble sutures to tighten and reposition sagging skin. The Thread Lift for the face is one of the most effective non-surgical treatments to instantly treat the visible signs of aging. Repeated smooth thread treatments are recommended every 4 to 6 weeks; lifting thread treatments will last and continue to show effect for up to 12 months.
