Updated: Sep 2, 2022

A study published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) confirms PDO thread lifts do work, stating thread lifts indisputably lift and shape facial soft tissues. Another study published by the NIH indicates this therapy yields around a 90 percent success rate.I'll be honest with you. When I feel better on the outside, I take better care of myself. That is why I plan on investing in thread lifting.

PDO Thread Lifts
I've heard since I was a kid, being raised by a very beautiful mom, who was all about perfecting what she was born with, that a woman's neck is sure sign of her age. Now that I'm in my 60's I see exactly what my mom was referring too. I love fillers, botox and the best deep facials there is. My face does look radiant but my neck not so much. Making time to invest in some serious thread lifting is on the top of the list.

The only way to address problems caused by facial skin laxities such as jowls and drooping cheeks recently was facelift surgery. After all, while skin resurfacing treatments can help restore some firmness, only a scalpel can genuinely remove it once loose skin is present. However, while the approach of relying on injectable compounds and skin resurfacing until facelift surgery becomes necessary works for many patients, not everyone is willing or able to have surgery. If you're in this group, you'll be happy to know that a new type of procedure has been developed to fill the gap between noninvasive facial rejuvenation and facelift surgery: The "thread lift."

What is a thread lift?
A thread lift is a procedure wherein temporary sutures produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. Instead of removing the patient's loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body's "healing response" and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of collagen's vital role in the aging process.

On the other hand, recovery from a thread lift is comparatively easy. Thread lifts can be performed under local rather than general anesthesia, meaning that thread lift patients can drive themselves home and look after themselves immediately after having their procedure. While some patients will experience soreness, redness, and swelling after having a thread lift and wish to take the rest of the day off, most can return to work immediately. Potent pain medication seldom needed after having a thread lift, making it easier for patients to return to their routine. Therefore, this procedure is ideal for people with children at home or busy, demanding care
