Edmonton PDO Thread Lift
Arguably the most effective non-surgical procedure to lift and tighten skin on one’s skin, the PDO Thread Lift is effective throughout the body. As the effects of gravity become more noticeable in our face and neck as we age, we lose collagen under our skin, making it looser and less pronounced. PDO Threads redefine facial contours by inducing collagen production in those areas in a process that is quick, immediately visible and the effects can last between 2 -3 years.
Conventional surgery typically just shifts skin, PDO Threads instead stimulate the skin to produce new collagen and blood vessels in order to improve skin microcirculation, giving you a more natural, long-lasting effect with firmer, smoother skin. PDO Thread Lift can also be performed on virtually any part of the body, including, hands, knees, upper arms, and stomach.
How it Works
The PDO Thread Lift is a minimally invasive procedure using just local anesthesia to numb the treatment areas. The threads used are made from Polydioxanone (PDO) and are inserted into the deeper layers of the skin to anchor and lift the skin upwards. The threads have 3 effects, namely;
- near instantaneous and visible lifting and tightening of skin
- cellular renewal as a result of the collagen stimulation
- neovascularisation which improves skin texture, fine lines, and elasticity
The PDO Threads are absorbed into one’s body within about 6 months after the procedure and the lifted contours will stay for about 3 – 6 months thereafter due to the cellular rejuvenation effects of the procedure. Cellular rejuvenation is a result of skin cells been stimulated to produce new collagen and new blood vessels that which in turn improve skin microcirculation.
Depending on the areas and the number of areas treated, the procedure can take anywhere between 30 – 60 minutes to complete. The procedure provides minimal discomfort to the patient and most are often able to resume their regular schedule within a day or two. It is however advised to reframe from any strenuous activity for at least 1 month.
Who Should Get A PDO Thread Lift?
PDO Thread Lifts is an excellent choice for anyone looking for an effective facial lifting and tightening treatment without the long downtime and high cost of surgery. The procedure requires being comfortable going under local anesthesia and having needles injected in the necessary areas while still awake.
Complications and Possible Side Effects
In comparrison to the traditional surgical facelift, the side effects for PDO Thread Lifts are relatively mild. Like all treatment that utilizes needles, mild bruising and swelling may occur and is usually gone within 3 – 5 days after the procedure. Temporary mild dimpling off the skin might also occur but only lasts a few days.
