Request A Complimentary Consultation
The PDO thread lift, aptly nicknamed the “lunchtime facelift”, is a quick and non-surgical procedure for facial rejuvenation. In under an hour, thin PDO threads are inserted under the skin to lift and tighten sagging areas.
With minimal downtime and discomfort, individuals can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment – much like taking a lunch break.
The lunchtime facelift offers an efficient and convenient solution for those seeking effective results without the commitment of traditional surgery. If you are not ready for plastic surgery or other invasive surgeries, this is the perfect alternative for you.
How does PDO Thread Lift tighten and rejuvenate the face?
A PDO thread lift procedure addresses sagging skin in most areas. It is commonly used in the mid-face area to lift sagging jowls, cheeks and improve jawline structure. It stimulates the body to produce new collagen, in return tightening your skin and creating a more youthful look.
The PDO thread lift accomplishes its tightening and rejuvenating effects through a simple yet innovative mechanism. The thin PDO threads, made from biocompatible materials known as polydioxanone (PDO), are carefully inserted into specific areas of the face. These threads act as a scaffolding system, providing support and lifting sagging skin. As we gently insert them, PDO threads stimulate the production of collagen, a vital protein responsible for maintaining the skin’s elasticity and firmness, while the body gradually absorbs the threads. This ingenious process, facilitated by us, encourages natural collagen synthesis, resulting in long-lasting and enhanced skin rejuvenation. The results may last for several years with proper maintenance.
The PDO thread lift effectively targets common problem areas such as the cheeks, jawline, and neck, effectively reducing the appearance of wrinkles and creating a more defined facial contour. With its ability to address multiple concerns simultaneously, this innovative procedure offers remarkable results. Furthermore, PDO threads are not limited to facial rejuvenation alone. They are also used for correcting crooked or asymmetrical noses, working beautifully for bridge augmentation, asymmetrical nostrils, and nose tip lifting. The versatility and effectiveness of PDO threads make them a preferred choice for individuals seeking comprehensive facial enhancements.
What to Expect After the Procedure
Choosing a thread lift over plastic surgery offers a much easier recovery process, and at Hush LA Medspa, we ensure a seamless experience. We perform thread lifts using only local anesthetics, eliminating the need for a hospital stay and minimizing the associated risks associated with general anesthesia.
You may experience a degree of tenderness, swelling, and redness in the hours after your thread lift. It is recommended to schedule your appointment on a day when you can rest and relax afterward. However, rest assured that there is no lengthy recovery required, and you do not need to restrict your activities.
Essential Care Tips and Enhancements for Radiant Skin
At our Medspa, we advise our clients to avoid placing undue pressure on their skin for approximately a week following the thread lift. We recommend gentle cleansing and moisturizing the skin while being cautious about positioning during sleep. Sleeping on your back can help prevent excess weight on your face as your body adjusts to the threads.
While a thread lift effectively lifts and tightens your skin, it is essential to note that its primary focus is on improving firmness and contour rather than significantly altering your skin’s overall appearance or texture. However, to complement the lift and to further enhance your skin’s radiance, we offer additional treatments such as microneedling with Vampire Facial, chemical peels, or HydraFacial. These treatments can help achieve a youthful, healthy glow while improving your skin’s overall texture, tone, and vitality.
Our comprehensive approach ensures that you enjoy the transformative benefits of a lifted and rejuvenated appearance with enhanced skin quality.
