Is thread lift permanent?
Your PDO threadlift procedure will not provide you with permanent results, but you can expect to enjoy the benefits of your procedure for several years. The Nova Threads used by the providers at Advanced Aesthetics are surgical grade absorbable sutures designed to address loose or sagging skin and to be naturally absorbed by the body over time. Additionally, the collagen production that can be stimulated by the insertion of your Nova Threads will provide an even longer lasting impact on your body’s natural ability to look more youthful. The threads provide lift for the face or neck and initiate a controlled healing response that will stimulate the production of collagen beneath the surface of your skin, so you can look more youthful and radiant even after your body has absorbed the sutures.
How long does a PDO threadlift last?
The Nova Threads are designed to be gradually absorbed by your body over a period of 4-6 months. However, the results of your PDO threadlift procedure will be noticeable for up to 3 years as your body continues to create collagen as a result of your threadlift session. Nova Threads come in several different designs, allowing your provider to tailor your procedure to precisely address your aesthetic concerns and needs, so you leave our med spa feeling great about the way you look.
What is a threadlift procedure?
During your threadlift procedure, your provider will insert temporary, biocompatible sutures into the face to provide a visible lift of sagging or lax skin. This will suspend loose facial skin to provide you with a younger and fresher appearance. The insertion of these threads will also stimulate the body’s natural healing process, which will include the induction of collagen in larger than normal quantities in the areas being treated. Collagen is one of the most important biological substances for anti-aging, and you can expect to see noticeable results from your treatment long after the PDO threads are absorbed by your body. There is no downtime required for recovery from your PDO threadlift, so you can return to all of your normal activities immediately following your appointment, making a threadlift a simple and convenient procedure that can offer dramatic improvement.
What does PDO thread mean?
PDO is a shortened term that stands for polydioxanone. Polydioxanone is a synthetic substance that is biocompatible with the human body. PDO sutures were originally used to perform important cardiac and thoracic surgical procedures and have been proven safe and effective for use inside the body. PDO sutures are unique because they are able to be completely absorbed by the body within 4-6 months without leaving behind problematic scar tissue. The insertion of PDO threads will create a selective inflammatory response in the body, allowing for a more youthful appearance for up to 3 years following your treatment.
