Synergy is always looking for the most innovative treatments for anti-aging and overall health. Aesthetic procedures have advanced so much in the past 15-20 years that we are able to achieve incredible results previously only possible with surgery. For clients looking for a more youthful, lifted appearance, PDO threads make a great alternative to traditional facelift surgeries. Let’s learn more about this treatment.
What Are PDO Threads?
PDO stands for Polydioxanone, the primary material that makes up PDO threads. This safe, biodegradable component is similar to the dissolvable sutures that surgeons use. A thread facelift involves strategically inserting these PDO threads just under the surface of the skin to pull up sagging areas (typically around the cheeks and jawline). Not only does this provide an instant lift, but the presence of the threads triggers your body to produce collagen, leading to long-term benefits even after the threads have dissolved.
How Long Does It Last?
Typically the threads dissolve in around 6 months, but your more lifted appearance can last up to a year. Those are long-lasting results for just a short 45-minute procedure. What’s more – there’s no downtime!
PDO Thread Facelifts Are Safe And Effective
Choosing PDO threads over traditional facelift surgery offers numerous benefits, an important one being a significant decrease in risks and side effects. PDO threads are incredibly safe, with a long history of use in humans since the 1980s. Plus, you won’t encounter any of the risks associated with a surgical procedure like anesthesia or stitches. Our clients have been very pleased with the amount of lift achieved with threads – especially when compared to the pain and hassle of a surgery.
