Facial signs of aging are a cause of concern for millions of men and women. In particular, lines and wrinkles around the mouth and cheeks and sagging skin on the jawline bring people into our offices every day, seeking our help to restore their confidence and help them look as young as they feel. Our nonsurgical and minimally invasive options to combat these signs of aging are effective and seamless, offering our clients a real solution to their concerns while eliminating the complications of full surgical procedures. When it comes to facial aging in particular, our popular PDO thread lifts offer long-lasting rejuvenation that can restore the natural contours of your face without surgery.
At Anand Medical Spa, Dr. Sunanda Chugh is proud to provide PDO thread lifts that can noticeably improve your appearance and help you feel confident again. This procedure uses dissolvable threads made of a gentle, body-safe substance to reposition and support aging skin around the cheeks and jawline, delivering results similar to a facelift surgery but with no downtime and minimal side effects. If you are seeking facial rejuvenation but are not ready for cosmetic surgery, then schedule a consultation with Dr. Chugh to learn how a PDO thread lift can help you.
How PDO Thread Lifts Work
Rather than remove excess skin or fill in wrinkles with dermal fillers, PDO thread lifts target the underlying structure of the face to provide facial rejuvenation from the inside out without surgery. FDA-cleared threads made of polydioxanone are placed underneath the skin through small incisions in the face. The threads are used to anchor sagging skin and lift it while simultaneously increasing collagen production for results that improve with time. The PDO threads are safely absorbed by the body over a period of four to six months, leaving a rejuvenated scaffolding of collagen and elastin behind for sustained results.
Dr. Chugh elects to use NovaThreads during her PDO thread lift procedures due to their FDA-clearance and reputation as some of the highest quality products available.
Are You A Good Candidate For PDO Thread Lifts?
Good candidates for PDO thread lifts are patients with mild to moderate facial and neck sagging that are interested in minimally invasive skin tightening. PDO thread lifts are an effective facelift solution that produces similar results as facial plastic surgery without noticeable scarring and an uncomfortable recovery. Each procedure is tailored to the unique and varying needs of the patient. Common areas of concern for patients interested in PDO thread lifts include:
- Jawline definition
- Upper neck
- Sagging eyebrows
- Crow’s feet
- Hollow cheeks
- Nasolabial folds
- Under eyes
As the body ages, your skin’s supply of collagen begins to diminish, causing your skin to lose its natural elasticity. A PDO thread lift is designed to create additional support using threaded anchor points while also increasing collagen production to counteract the effects of aging. Patients can enjoy long-lasting results with little to no side effects.
Side Effects and Results
Most patients experience minimal side effects following their PDO thread lift procedure. Common side effects include bruising, swelling, soreness and tightness which may last a few days or up to two weeks. PDO thread lift procedures require no downtime, so you can return to work and your normal routine as soon as you feel comfortable.
Results are apparent immediately after the procedure, as the sagging skin will be tightened and held in place by the underlying threads. Your results will become more visible as swelling and other side effects diminish. The increased collagen production from the procedure will also continue to improve results for up to six months. Once the threads have been dissolved, most patients enjoy their improved facial contours and rejuvenated appearance for 12 to 18 months. The PDO thread lift procedure can then be repeated as desired for continuously youthful and natural-looking skin.
