PDO Thread Lift For Marionette lines
Our face support structure deteriorates as we age and lose significant facial volume. When gravity’s downward pressure combines the facial tissues, howling, periorbital hollowness, laugh, and marionette lines emerge. The non-surgical thread lift, sometimes called PDO threads or a thread facelift, successfully lifts sagging skin without requiring surgery.
What Is a Thread Lift That Is Not Surgical?
Thread lifts are a non-surgical treatment in which threads are introduced just under the skin’s surface to lift and strategically rearrange the skin. Because the threads are a foreign substance your body does not recognize, they activate a wound-healing response, increasing natural collagen, elastin, and binding tissue synthesis. The natural production of these vital components enables your body to retain the benefits of your thread lift.
We employ PDO threads at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre in Edmonton, commonly used for surgical stitching. Because PDO threads are biodegradable, they are naturally absorbed by your body about six to nine months after your non-surgical thread lift. We use PDO threads to treat most facial regions, including the cheeks, jowls, neck, brows, jawline, under-eye and around-the-nose areas, crow’s feet, and marionette lines.
Cog PDO Thread Face Lift
Cog threads are similar to mono threads but contain barbs on the bottom that adhere to the skin. They provide support for the area being elevated. Additionally, they stimulate collagen development surrounding the threads and barbs. Typically, cog threads treat the mid-face, jawline, neck, brows, and nose.
We employ the sort of thread depending on your specific requirements. Dr. Alhallak can determine which threads will provide the greatest outcome during the initial consultation.
What to Expect During the Treatment
The non-surgical thread lift procedure takes around 45 minutes to an hour. We shall first give a local anesthetic to the treated regions to ensure your comfort.
Your therapist will use a small needle or cannula to introduce the threads under the skin’s surface. Once inserted, we adjust the threads to tighten, elevate, and place the tissue to meet your demands and provide the most natural-looking outcome possible. Patients perceive this aspect of the therapy as unusual but not uncomfortable.
You might anticipate some bruising, swelling, and pain in the treated regions after your non-surgical thread lifts surgery. Additionally, your skin may feel tight. Allow 2-3 weeks for any soreness to diminish and for everything to recover completely.
Additionally, you may see some dimpling or the skin not appearing as smooth as anticipated soon after treatment. This is perfectly normal and will resolve within 2-3 weeks. You may even hear a “pop” under your skin when the barbs of the threads lodge in your tissue.
Additional vigour Tylenol and icing the treatment region for around 2-3 days after your thread lift may help alleviate any tightness, discomfort, swelling, or bruising.
You will want to avoid applying pressure to your face for 2-3 weeks after treatment. Additionally, you must abstain from rigorous activity and significant sweat, exposure to the sun, dental treatments, and severe facial expressions for around 2-3 weeks.
Who Are the Most Appropriate Candidates for a Non-Surgical Thread Lift?
Thread lifts are not a substitute for neurotoxins or fillers. They are another way to rejuvenate the face and prevent sagging while postponing the need for a surgical facelift. Certain patients will need the volume that dermal fillers can primarily provide. Others may need the usage of neurotoxins to soften wrinkles.
A non-surgical thread lift is suitable for someone between 40 and 55 with mild laxity of the cheeks and chin with Mandell-developed but drooping malar pads.
Individuals suffering from this condition usually do not want to undergo a more intrusive surgical treatment.
How much does it cost?
The cost of this procedure varies according to the region treated. Most patients will need 1-2 sessions one month apart to begin. Following that, we perform annual maintenance treatments. $1,500 jawline lift
How Long Does It Take for a Non-Surgical Thread Face Lift to Take Effect?
We employ PDO threads at The Plastic Surgery Clinic and MD Beauty Clinic. PDO threads may last between 6 and 9 months, depending on a range of parameters such as their thickness and the rate your body metabolizes them. However, since the threads encourage your body’s collagen, elastin, and binding tissue synthesis, the effects of your non-surgical thread lift will endure for months after the PDO threads disintegrate. In other words, the effect will last around a year, if not slightly longer.
