If sagging skin and lost facial volume are making you unhappy with your appearance and you don’t want to have surgery, PDO threads may be the perfect solution. Saima Jehangir, MD, MPH, FACOG, and the exceptional staff at Alchemy Wellness Medspa in Austin, Texas, offer PDO thread facelifts to naturally improve the look and texture of your skin by stimulating new cell growth. PDO threads dissolve on their own and within a few months, so you can enjoy a more contoured, younger-looking appearance. Call the office to schedule a PDO thread lift consultation or request one online today.
A polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift is a procedure that places threads in areas of your face where skin sags. These threads are similar to stitches you would get after surgery, and they dissolve on their own.
The PDO threads trigger your body’s natural healing response and stimulate the growth of collagen and elastic that, over time, fill in areas of lost volume.
This minimally invasive procedure requires no surgery or general anesthesia.
Alchemy Wellness Medspa can use a local anesthetic to prevent discomfort. Your provider makes a tiny entry point near your ear and places the fine threads along the contours of your face.
Once the threads are in place, you can return to normal activities. However, avoiding strenuous activity and exercises for up to three weeks is recommended to allow your skin time to heal.
Your provider will give you care instructions to take care of your skin properly. You may experience temporary swelling and mild bruising that will resolve in a few days.
PDO threads can provide you long-lasting results, with many enjoying as long as three years of smoother, tighter skin. Results can vary depending on several factors, including:
Over time, sagging skin can return, and Alchemy Wellness Medspa may recommend maintenance treatments as needed to maintain your results.
A PDO thread lift is an ideal treatment for women over 40 and can benefit women as young as 70. You might be a good candidate for the procedure if you are in good overall health and want natural-looking results without the risks of surgery.
If you have sagging skin on your neck, cheek, or brows, Alchemy Wellness Medspa can use PDO threads to rejuvenate your skin, giving you plumper, healthier, and more youthful-looking skin.
A PDO thread facelift may be an effective alternative to Botox® treatments and other dermal fillers if you’re looking for longer-lasting results.
