i. FACE THREADLIFT
- If you’ve hit 30-40s and are looking for ways to delay the aging process and regain your youthful look, there’s no need to go through plastic surgery just yet. PDO threadlifting is one of the nonsurgical face lifting procedures nowadays that will help restore your facial contour and reduce the visible effects of age and gravity on your neck and face.PDO Thread-lift is a highly effective and safe solution to matured skin. This revolutionary, non surgical facelift treatment will give you a smoother, beautifully-contoured face without the risks associated with traditional facelift surgery. It will also lift skin around your brows and reduce the appearance of wrinkles in your neck and décolletage.
Simply put, you will get the full benefits of a facelift, neck tightening treatments, and a brow lift without surgery.
The tension in the PDO threads will provide a lifting effect by pulling the skin together. The effect will be tightening of sagging skin, especially in the brows, jawline, neck, and décolleté.
Once the suture threads are introduced into the skin, it triggers the human skin’s natural self-healing abilities. You will be surprised at your skin’s ability to naturally heal itself. What happens is that your skin will gently react to the PDO threads and an inflammatory reaction is induced, resulting in collagen formation around each thread inserted into the skin.
The healing process strengthens the skin and is further enhanced by the increase in blood flow to the dermis. When the threads dissolve in the months following the procedure, the bundles of collagen that were formed will keep the skin tight, supple, and rejuvenated.
So how does PDO Thread Lift works?
PDO thread lift is a procedure that involves the insertion of a blunt-tip cannula with a fine absorbable polydioxanone threads into the skin or the subcutaneous fat of the specific areas to be treated. The use of a blunt-tip cannula provides lower risks of bruising and swelling as it does not damage any blood vessels during the procedure.
Another major feature of this scientifically and clinically proven facelift without surgery, which can take as little as an hour, is that it produces immediate lifting effects in the treated areas without unnecessary risks or scarring.
After the procedure, you will see a natural and immediate lift. However, the desired results will be most visible a few weeks after the procedure as more collagen bundles form around the PDO threads resulting in a more lifted and rejuvenated look.
You can expect an overall improvement in your skin’s texture and appearance because the procedure is effective at diminishing fine lines and wrinkles as it lifts saggy or droopy skin; the desired results can last up to 12 months.
For optimum results, it can be combined with other anti-aging treatments such HIFU, Botox, and fillers that are also proven effective and safe for lifting and rejuvenating aging and mature skin.
Who can benefit from a PDO thread lift?
If you are looking for a nonsurgical, safe, and cost-effective procedure to restore health and youthfulness to the skin on your brow, cheek, neckline, and chest areas, you just might be the right candidate for a PDO thread lift.
ii. NOSE THREADLIFT
- Thanks to the PDO threadlift technology, the nose can also be augmented non-surgically using polydioxanone (PDO) threads that are 100% bio-compatible and absorbable by our bodies.Also known as a ‘lunchtime nose job’, PDO Nose Thread Lift is a treatment that can be completed in under an hour. Because of the minimal downtime, patients can resume their daily activities thereafter.
After numbing and application of local anaesthetic, doctor will place fine threads along the nasal bridge for the height and the septum to give projection to the nose. The threads are placed under the skin to elevate the nose bridge and tip while stimulating collagen formation to provide sustainable lift for the nose.
The number of threads required varies according to individuals. An initial consult with the doctor is required to determine the current shape of the nose and the desired outcome before he can decide the number of threads required.
Results are immediately visible as the threads provide the scaffold for the nose.
DOES NOSE THREAD LIFT HAVE SIDE EFFECTS?
As the PDO threads are bio-absorbable, they will be broken down in 8-12 months after the treatment. PDO is an essential material used by surgeons for their surgical sutures.
It is normal to experience some soreness and swelling immediately after the treatment. However, these side effects will subside in a few days.
HOW LONG DOES NOSE THREAD LIFT LAST?
Results from a Nose Thread Lift treatment can usually last for about 8 months to 1 year. If the treatment is repeated 9 months after the initial treatment, you can expect the result to be longer-lasting. With stimulation of collagen in the nose, some permanent lifting can be expected.
