How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last?

None of us want to appear older than we are, but we can't control the loose skin that begins to form as we age. Due to heredity, health issues, smoking, heavy drinking, or repeated unprotected sun exposure, some will start to lose their youthful appearance. Regardless of why you desire to appear younger, a PDO thread lift can help you look and feel better. However, not everyone wants to undergo a procedure more than once.

So how long does a PDO thread lift last in tightening your skin? The PDO thread lift is known as the "lunchtime facelift" since it’s a rapid, low-risk surgery that takes less than an hour to complete. In just about 2 weeks the threads will begin to dissolve, and you don't have to worry about facial volume loss for upwards of 9 months, some even lasting as long as 18 months.

How Long Can You Enjoy the Benefits of a PDO Thread Lift?

Your complete results will be visible in 6 to 8 months. Patients' outcomes vary, but most people experience results that persist for at least 18 months. Your skin will be lifted and supported during the initial treatment, which you will feel right away, meaning results are almost immediate and instant post-treatment.

Long-term effects, such as collagen production, will also be initiated by the therapy. These benefits will take time to materialize, so once you leave your session, you can relax knowing that your outcomes will improve over time. Further support your results by creating a normal routine of taking care of your face and skin.

How Immediately Can You See Results?

Skin lifting and contouring benefits are instantly noticeable as a result of the PDO thread lift procedure and your skin may appear lifted and tighter. This appearance will appear to soften and return to a natural look after a while.

The magic comes when the threads activate collagen production over time, which varies from person to person, but the benefits can last up to a year. The rate at which your body generates new, healthy collagen, the protein that plumps up your cheeks, fills in fine lines and smooths out wrinkles, are factors to consider when it comes to results monitoring.

Additional at-home maintenance treatments might help you maintain your young appearance and feel. Taking good care of your skin and doing everything you can to maintain it healthy can also help you get better outcomes. You can:

  1. Drink a lot of water.
  2. Use good sunscreen daily.
  3. Avoid or quit smoking completely.
  4. Use good skincare products by getting professional recommendations from your surgeon or dermatologist.
  5. Have a healthy and nutritious diet plan.
  6. Take vitamins and supplements to help your skin stay in good shape.

Do You Need More Than One Treatment?

After just one treatment, the majority of patients are already pleased with their outcomes. We recommend returning to the clinic 6 to 9 months following your initial treatment to see if you require additional therapy. Maintenance or new treatment areas might be performed at the behest of your surgeon.

While PDO threading is a great way to lift and rejuvenate your skin, it doesn't assist with other cosmetic goals and if you want to preserve or improve your results, you may combine this procedure with additional rejuvenation techniques.

Thread lifts are frequently combined with injectable treatments such as wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers. PDO threading is commonly used with the following treatments: Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX® and Dysport®, might be used with a thread lift in the brow and eye area to decrease facial crow's feet and frown lines, as threads are frequently ineffective in those locations.

Dermal fillers such as Restylane® or Sculptra®, can be used with a thread lift to provide a fuller look and a bigger lift, similar to that seen in a surgical or liquid facial procedure and if you have skin damage such as sun or age spots, acne scars, uneven texture, or other concerns, laser skin resurfacing can often be paired with a thread lift.

Do note that you can maintain your skin's health and radiance on your own. It's crucial to keep up with a proper at-home skin care regimen that involves cleaning, exfoliating, and moisturizing on a regular basis and creating an effective daily skincare routine.

Meanwhile, staying hydrated, protecting your skin from the sun, and eating a healthy, mostly processed-food-free diet are all beneficial as well. Smoking, which weakens the skin, should be avoided as much as possible.

How Does PDO Thread Lifts Work?

The PDO thread lift is a local anesthetic in-office surgery. The threads are placed in regions of the face where the skin has begun to droop as collagen and subcutaneous fat levels have declined. The skin's structure is jeopardized when this scaffolding is lost. In the lowest levels, the PDO threads anchor the tissues and offer extra support.

The NovaThreads promote the body's natural healing reaction when put beneath the skin. As the body produces new collagen and cells repair themselves over time, patients will see a gradual improvement in their skin's firmness and suppleness.

Collagen is a naturally occurring protein. It is a necessary component of the skin, since it aids in its strength and elasticity. However, as people get older, their bodies create less collagen, which causes wrinkles and sagging.

A PDO thread lift requires almost minimal downtime, and patients can resume their typical activities very immediately. Mild discomfort, swelling, and redness may occur in some individuals, although these symptoms usually fade after a few days.

Benefits of PDO Thread Lifts

1. Skin Tightening

A PDO thread lift tightens drooping facial regions by providing support beneath the skin, lifting the skin and giving the face a smoother, younger appearance. The operation can help smoothen and tighten the midface and neck, as well as elevate the brows and jowls.

2. Collagen Boosting

A PDO thread lift also rejuvenates face tissues by stimulating collagen fibers in the skin. The PDO threads are inserted beneath the skin and initiate the body's healing reaction, causing it to manufacture more collagen. The PDO thread lift provides a collagen infusion that thickens and moisturizes the skin, making it firmer and tighter.

3. Long Term Outcomes

The PDO thread lift helps you seem younger by reversing indications of age. The effects might last anywhere from one to three years for some rare patients. A PDO thread lift may be the right choice for you if you want to obtain tighter, younger-looking skin without surgery. It's a low-risk, minimally invasive technique with immediate results and minimum downtime.
