If you would like to refresh your skin and achieve a more youthful look, you should think about accomplishing these aesthetic goals by getting a PDO thread lift at Priority You MD in Clearwater, FL. You won’t have to get uncomfortable stitches or spend time in the hospital when you receive this minimally invasive treatment. Instead, we will use gentle methods to lift and rejuvenate your skin.
How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Take?
You can firm your sagging facial tissues and enhance the contours of your face without getting a traditional brow lift, facelift, or other invasive procedure. During a PDO thread lift, we will use specialized threads to lift your sagging tissues and rejuvenate your look.
You will receive your lift at our conveniently located office in Clearwater. This cosmetic technique is very effective, and your thread lift will probably take less than 60 minutes to finish. When you schedule your lift, we will provide you with more detailed information about the specific length of your appointment.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Type of Lift?
If your facial tissues have started to sag, you will probably be a good candidate for a thread lift. For example, you might decide to receive this lift when you are experiencing mild laxity issues in your early forties. If you have very loose skin on your face, we may advise you to use different cosmetic techniques to correct this issue.
Before we provide your lift, we will examine your face and talk about the results that you would like to achieve. We will also ask you to describe your medical background and tell us about any injectable products, facials, or other cosmetic treatments that you have used in the past. After this discussion is complete, we will work together to craft a customized beauty plan for you.
What Rules Should I Follow Before I Receive My Thread Lift?
Since you will not receive general anesthesia during your PDO thread lift, you will not be required to follow burdensome rules before your appointment. However, we may tell you to stop taking certain types of blood-thinning supplements and medications for a few days. For example, we may ask you to avoid taking supplements that contain St. John’s Wort.
We may also advise you to temporarily avoid drinking wine, beer, and other types of alcohol. On the day of your appointment, you should not put on makeup or apply skincare products onto your face.
How Will My Thread Lift Work?
We will use Novathreads to enhance your appearance. Your Novathreads will contain a special type of material called polydioxanone. This absorbable material has been used to make medical sutures for many years. During your lift, we will use a gentle, comfortable technique to put Novathreads under the surface layer of your skin.
Next, we will carefully tighten your Novathreads. After your lift is complete, these threads will enhance your production of a structural protein called collagen. This naturally-occurring protein will help your skin fight the negative effects of age. As the amount of collagen in your facial tissues begins to improve, your sagging skin will become tighter and the contours of your face will improve.
What Will Happen After My Thread Lift Is Complete?
When you use an invasive method to fade your lines and tighten your skin, you might have to spend many weeks away from your usual routine. During your long recovery period, you may be required to stay in bed and avoid exercise. Fortunately, recovering from a thread lift is a very brief, easy process. After we have finished positioning your Novathreads, you will be free to return to your office or home.
During the next several days, we may advise you to keep your head elevated while you are sleeping. In addition, we may instruct you to avoid touching or rubbing your facial tissues.
When Will My Sagging Skin Start To Improve?
As soon as we finish your thread lift, your sagging skin will look tauter and more vibrant. In addition to creating instant changes in your loose skin, this type of lift will create more gradual improvements in your look. As you adjust to this treatment, the number of collagen proteins in your facial tissues will begin to go up, and your skin will become firmer and more youthful-looking.
How Long Will the Effects of My Thread Lift Last?
Over time, you will naturally absorb your PDO threads. It will usually take about six months for your Novathreads to fully dissolve. During this time, you should expect to see continued improvements in your loose skin and other aesthetic problems. Since your Novathreads will boost the number of collagen proteins in your skin, your improvements may persist after your threads have completely dissolved.
In particular, your lift might improve your appearance for up to 12 months. After one year has passed, your improvements will probably begin to fade. You can extend the benefits of your original thread lift by getting a follow-up lift at this time.
Should I Use Permanent Threads To Lift My Sagging Skin?
Several years ago, some cosmetic providers used durable threads to lift people’s sagging skin. These threads did not dissolve over a period of several months. Instead, these threads were supposed to permanently stay in people’s skin. Unfortunately, this type of thread lift has a number of significant drawbacks.
An Outdated Method
Permanent PDO thread lift failed to produce lasting improvements in people’s skin. In addition, these durable threads sometimes caused people to develop inflammation and other health issues. These threads were also very challenging to remove.
A Better Solution
PDO threads are much safer and more effective than permanent threads. Accordingly, we will never use permanent threads during your lift. Instead, we will protect your safety by using dissolvable Novathreads to enhance your sagging tissues.
Why Should I Consider Receiving a Thread Lift?
A thread lift will provide you with several important benefits.
It’s Very Cost-Effective
Receiving a traditional facelift can be a very expensive experience. In addition to paying for your cosmetic procedure, you may need to cover hospital and anesthesia fees. Further, you might use up all of your vacation or personal days while you are recovering from your facelift. It’s also common to spend a large amount of money hiring people to assist you with childcare, household chores, and other tasks.
Receiving a thread lift is a much more affordable way to improve your sagging skin. You will not need to cover general anesthesia fees or use up your personal days during a long recovery period. Further, you won’t need to hire people to help you with your childcare or household chores.
It Creates Fast Results
After you receive a traditional facelift, you might feel uncomfortable going out in public for several weeks. In addition, you will probably have to wait for several months before you see the final impact of a traditional facelift. In contrast, a thread lift will immediately firm your sagging skin, and you will look renewed and beautiful as your Novathreads gradually increase your collagen production.
It Has a Short Recovery Period
A long recovery period is one of the main drawbacks of a traditional facelift. Although your response to this cosmetic procedure will be unique, you will probably need to take significant time off from your work if you use this method to lift your skin. In contrast, a thread lift is a quick, minimally invasive treatment that has a very brief period of downtime.
Can I Use Other Aesthetic Methods To Enhance My Look?
In addition to providing thread lifts, we can use many other gentle, minimally invasive methods to firm your skin, reduce your wrinkles, and fix other age-related problems. Under some circumstances, we may advise you to improve your lax skin and other aesthetic challenges by incorporating several of these treatments into your beauty routine.
Over time, your facial tissues will lose moisture and begin to sag. Receiving a frozen facelift is a gentle, easy way to enhance your facial structure and firm your skin. During your relaxing appointment, we will use a cryopreserved product to enhance your complexion. This special product will be stored at very cold temperatures.
This product will contain collagen, hyaluronic acid, growth factors, and many other anti-aging ingredients. When we use this product to improve your skin, you will feel a pleasant cooling sensation. After your treatment is complete, your skin will be smoother and your tissues will be more moisturized.
Ossential Glow Treatment
If your skin looks dull or coarse, we may advise you to get an Ossential Glow Treatment. This is a lunchtime peel that will not require you to spend any time away from your job. In fact, this treatment will only take 30 minutes to complete.
During your appointment, we will use gentle acids to exfoliate your skin and enhance the radiance of your complexion. Since this peel works very quickly, receiving this treatment is a good way to transform your look before a wedding or other special event.
ZO 3-Step Peel
If you have sun damage, large pores, or acne, you should receive our ZO 3-Step Peel. During the first step of your treatment, we will improve your skin with a special solution that contains salicylic acid and other rejuvenating ingredients.
Next, we will use a customized retinol cream to decrease your wrinkles and firm your skin. This nourishing cream will use ubiquinone, antioxidants, and other powerful ingredients to enhance your complexion. During the third step of this peel, we will apply a soothing cream that will reduce inflammation and moisturize your skin.
Intense Pulsed Light Treatment
We can use intense pulsed light treatments to fix your age spots, acne scars, visible blood vessels, and other cosmetic problems. During an IPL treatment, we will use our Fluorescent Pulsed Light system to gently heat your tissues.
This comfortable treatment will boost your ability to make new collagen proteins. Although your skin may improve after you receive one treatment, you will usually notice more significant changes in your scars, visible blood vessels, and other cosmetic problems if you receive a series of IPL sessions.
