We are waging a constant battle against time. After the age of 30, collagen and elastin, the substances in our skin that keep it supple and young-looking, begin to decline dramatically. You know what happens then. Sagging skin, lines, and wrinkles occur. In the past, a surgical facelift was the only way to reliably counteract this problem, and it rarely produced a natural look. Fortunately, today, we at Alma Rose have some fabulous alternatives when it comes to tightening skin, including PDO threads.
What Are PDO Threads?
PDO threads are special monofilament sutures that are naturally absorbed by the body over time. We weave these threads into your face to give it a natural lift. It is sometimes called a string facelift. This face and neck threading can provide an immediate lift, or can create a mesh to support your natural meshwork of collagen and elastin fibers. Not only do the threads tighten and lift skin, but they also stimulate healing to boost collagen and elastin production, so even when they dissolve, you enjoy the effects of new collagen for tighter, more supple, younger-looking skin.
What Do PDO Threads Address?
PDO threads are great for sagging skin, making your skin tighter and more youthful, as well as for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. If you are looking for an age-defying treatment without the trauma and recovery time of a traditional surgical facelift, a PDO thread lift may be perfect for you.
Are There Any Side Effects?
We are experts at administering this procedure and you should experience no thread lift side effects. You can resume daily activities almost immediately after treatment.
What Results Can I Expect?
This is a simple procedure that usually takes no more than 30 minutes with minimal discomfort. Since there is no surgical cutting, recovery is typically quite fast. There may be some bruising and swelling for the first 48 hours or so after the procedure, during which time you may wish to avoid very strenuous activity, but other than that there should be no other restrictions. You should notice a difference in your appearance as soon as the swelling goes down, but results should continue even after the threads dissolve, allowing you to enjoy the effects for an average of one and a half to two years, at which point you can repeat the procedure.
