Posted Date :        August 21, 2017
Non surgical facelift and PDO threads

Are you suffering from sagging skin, signs of ageing, wrinkles, folds and deep creases? Today, more number of people is opting for minimally invasive and non-surgical procedure over surgical methods. Well, it is not only about performing non surgical facelift procedure but also about the downtime needed that can have an effect on your lifestyle and daily activities.

What you need to know about PDO thread lift

Polydioxanone or PDO is a thread without cones which means there is no damage caused to the tissue and the procedure is safe. This non-invasive treatment attains a mechanical lift with noticeable results immediately and lifts using tissue contraction and fibrosis over the next few months. The facial areas that can be treated with PDO thread lift are:

  • Brow lift
  • Neck lift
  • Midface lift
  • Lower face
  • Jowls

How PDO threads work

These threads are made of Polidioxanone (PDO) and used as a suturing material worldwide. They are anchored by tiny hooks along the thread nad inserted under the skin. When the threads get tightened, there is some kind of skin lifting and tightening. However, when the threads begin to degrade, there is some kind of healing and contraction in the skin over the next 6-8 months. Other PDO threads used for collagen stimulation are being inserted superficially beneath the skin in different rows based on the area to be treated. There is collagen stimulation due to the thread, the insertion and effects of ’24 hours day acupuncture’ that leads to volumisation and skin tightening.

About the treatment method

Local anaesthetic is injected into the skin at certain points where the thread gets inserted. The thread is then introduced below the skin. Now, the thread gets tightened for the most desired effect. Local anaesthetic is applied on certain parts of the skin where finer threads are used for fat reduction or skin tightening.

The downtime needed

There will be some kind of swelling and bruising immediately after the treatment. This can be reduced by taking tablets 7 days before, omega oils 7 days before, stopping C & E Vitamins and avoiding aspirin and anti inflammatory.

Aftercare effects of the treatment

  • Sleep by facing on the pillows for at least 3-5 days
  • Shave, wash and dry face without rubbing for 5 days
  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight for 2 weeks
  • Prevent facial massages and aesthetic treatments for almost 4 weeks
  • Try not to play high impact sports for a minimum of 2 weeks
  • Do not go for routine dental checkups and oral treatments for 2 weeks
  • Stay away from excessive facial movements for 2 weeks
