If sagging skin and lost facial volume is making you unhappy with your appearance, and you don’t want to have surgery, a PDO thread lift may be the perfect solution. At Health and Rejuvenation Center in Miami, Dr. Aleida Hera offers this cutting-edge cosmetic procedure to naturally improve the look and texture of your skin by stimulating new cell growth. Threads dissolve on their own, and within a few months, so you can enjoy a more contoured, younger-looking appearance. Book a PDO thread lift consultation online or by calling Dr. Hera’s office.
A polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift is a procedure where Dr. Hera places threads in areas your face where skin sags. These threads are similar to stitches you would get after surgery, and they dissolve on their own.
The threads trigger your body’s natural healing response and stimulate the growth of collagen and elastic that, over time, fill in areas of lost volume.
This minimally invasive procedure requires no surgery or general anesthesia. Dr. Hera can use a local anesthetic to prevent discomfort. She makes a tiny entry point near your ear and places the fine threads along the contours of your face.
Once the threads are in place, you can return to your normal activities. However, Dr. Hera recommends avoiding strenuous activity and exercises for up to three weeks to allow your skin time to heal. She also gives you care instructions to properly take care of your skin.
You may experience temporary swelling and some mild bruising that will resolve on its own in a few days.
A PDO thread lift can give you long lasting results, with many enjoying as long as three years of smoother, tighter skin. Results vary on a number of factors, including:
Over time, sagging skin can return, and Dr. Hera may recommend maintenance treatments as needed to maintain your results.
A PDO thread lift is an ideal treatment for women over 40 and can be beneficial for women as young as 70. You might be a good candidate for the procedure if you are in good overall health and want natural-looking results without the risks of surgery.
If you have sagging skin on your neck, cheek, or brows, Dr. Hera can use the thread lift procedure to rejuvenate your skin, giving you plumper, healthier, and more youthful looking skin.
A PDO thread lift may be an effective alternative to Botox® treatments and other dermal fillers if you’re looking for longer-lasting results.
