When it comes to rejuvenating your look, you have many non-surgical options from Botox® and fillers to skin resurfacing. Though these treatments restore your youthful look, they can’t stop the aging process and may not be effective if you’re starting to experience facial laxity, which causes your skin to sag and droop.
Until recently, a surgical facelift was the only treatment that could fix droopy and saggy skin. But our aesthetic specialists at Montclair Rejuvenation Center in Verona, New Jersey, offer a non-surgical solution to lift and tighten your skin. For an instantly younger look with little downtime, we offer PDO (polydioxanone) threads.
PDO threads explained
PDO threads are a type of suturing material made from biocompatible proteins that dissolve over time without leaving scar tissue. Cardiothoracic surgeons often use PDO threads to close surgical incisions. More recently, aesthetic specialists use PDO threads to perform a thread lift, which is the non-surgical alternative to the traditional facelift.
Instead of cutting the excess skin to restore a more youthful look, we strategically place sutures using PDO threads, which pull your facial skin back to lift and tighten. PDO threads are ideal if you’re looking for a nonsurgical alternative to a facelift to restore your natural youthful look. Our non-surgical facelift is also ideal for those not considered a good surgical candidate for a facelift because of pre-existing health conditions.
Quick and easy placement
Dedicated to providing the best results with minimal side effects, we use FDA-approved NovaThreads for our PDO thread lifts. NovaThreads are needles pre-loaded with PDO threads, which means no cutting or incisions, only quick and easy injections.
For your non-surgical PDO thread lift, we use barbed sutures from NovaThread. When injected into precise areas of your face, the barbed sutures gather the skin to produce a more noticeable lift and securely anchor the skin in place.
Placement of your PDO threads takes less than an hour and is performed using a local anesthetic to minimize pain. Unlike a facelift, PDO threads provide instant results.
Though downtime isn’t necessary, you may want to take the rest of the day off after your PDO threads are placed. You should be able to go back to your normal routine the next day.
Collagen building for lasting results
In addition to your instantly younger look, PDO threads also provide lasting results by stimulating the production of collagen. Collagen is a structural protein responsible for your skin’s youthful strength, volume, and resilience. As you get older, collagen production decreases and is one of the major factors leading to the visible signs of aging.
When injected into your skin, PDO threads stimulate a healing response, which triggers a surge in collagen production. Even as your PDO threads dissolve over the 4-6 months after placement, you should continue to notice gradual improvements in the tone and firmness of your skin due to the increase in collagen.
