PDO Thread Lifts use dissolvable sutures to anchor the skin, creating uplifting benefits similar to a facelift without surgery!
As the body’s collagen and elastin production slow over time, the skin may develop wrinkles, loss of volume, and sagging. While there are many methods of lifting and rejuvenating the skin, there are few which provide dramatic results without significant downtime.
A Younger You Med Spa offers MINT (Minimally Invasive Non-surgical Thread) PDO thread lifts. MINT PDO Thread Lift is an innovative and minimally invasive treatment that produces immediate results with minimal downtime. The threads are composed of a complex sugar polydioxanone (PDO) which has been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for more than 30 years. These special threads are molded with small barbs which anchor into the skin to create lift and increase collagen and production in target areas.
The PDO Thread Lift procedure is straightforward and fast. When you arrive for your MINT PDO Thread Lift at A Younger You Med Spa, your skin will be cleansed and prepped, and a topical anesthetic will be applied. A very thin needle will be used to apply the sutures in target areas. The application of sutures may take 30 to 45 minutes, after which your thread lift will be complete!
MINT PDO Thread Lift is quickly increasing in popularity due to its convenience and ability to produce dramatic instant results. The procedure takes approximately one hour, and results may last as long as a year.
The sutures fully dissolve in six to eight months, though the increase in collagen production continues even after the thread is absorbed. Downtime and scarring are extremely minimal. PDO Thread Lift can be used to achieve a more youthful appearance, creating those on-trend sleek contours. PDO Thread Lift can instantly give you a higher cheekbone contour, a heart-shaped facial line, a defined jawline, reduced smile lines, a lifted brow, and smoother lines in the neck.
Recovery following your thread lift is extremely minimal. Some clients choose to return to work the same day, though some swelling and bruising may be present. While you will notice an immediate difference in treated areas, results are likely to improve as any swelling or bruising subside. You may be advised to avoid rubbing the skin in treated areas, applying moisturizer, and sleeping on your side for several weeks following your thread lift. Results typically last one year.
A Younger You Med Spa offers this innovative treatment for aging skin on the face and neck. If you are interested in treating yourself to this convenient, effective, and minimally invasive facelift alternative, please contact us during regular business hours to schedule your consultation.
Due to its minimally invasive nature, side effects from PDO Thread Lift are minimal and may include swelling, bruising, bleeding, or mild pain at suture sites. Complications from PDO Thread Lift are also considered minor and easily treatable. Migration or movement of the threads, dimpling or pulling at suture locations, minor bleeding beneath the skin, pain under the skin, allergic reaction, or infection at procedure sites may occur.
The use of anesthesia combined with the minimally invasive quality of PDO Thread Lift provides a procedure experience that is easily bearable for most people.
While a MINT PDO Thread Lift involves minimal recovery and is far less invasive, it cannot produce results as dramatic or long-lasting as those associated with a traditional facelift. Trauma, downtime, and cost of PDO Thread Lift are extremely low in comparison to those of a facelift.
While results from a facelift are dramatic and may last as long as 10 years, there are several factors that may make PDO Thread Lift a more attractive option for treating sagging or wrinkled skin. Facelifts involve weeks of recovery, significant pain, an increased risk of complication and side effects, increased cost, and a much longer procedure.
