PDO Thread Lift in Atlanta
PDO Thread Lifting for Face or Body
The PDO Thread Lift is a treatment, which lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). The threads are inserted into the deeper layers of the skin. Once inserted, the threads produce 3 effects in the skin:
- Instant Skin Lifting through mechanical effects
- Cellular Renewal, through Collagen stimulation, and neovascularization to improve skin texture, fine lines and elasticity
- Skin Tightening, by contracting fat tissue
A PDO Thread Lift is a minimally invasive procedure. After numbing and infusion of local anesthesia, the PDO threads are inserted via sharp or blunt tip needles (called cannulas) into different layers of the skin. Once inserted, the threads anchor the skin and lift it upwards. The excess threads are then cut off.
PDO threads can be used for lifting, rejuvenation (improving skin texture and wrinkles), and volume. Different threads are used for different purposes and the possibilities are endless.
The PDO thread lift is very versatile, allowing practically all areas of the face and body to be treated, including the:
- Under-eye area
- Crow’s feet (wrinkles around eyes)
- Nasolabial folds
- Nasojugal folds
- Wrinkles around mouth
- Jaw line
The cheeks and lower face, in particular, benefit greatly from the procedure, allowing a lift which is synergistic to other skin lifting treatments such as Ultherapy.
The rejuvenating effects kick in after 1-2 months – you will notice better skin texture, firmer and smoother skin. Depending on your individual needs, Dr. Schilling may concentrate more on either skin rejuvenation, or skin lifting during your procedure. Depending on the technique and which is used, the results will vary from person to person.
In about 6-9 months after the treatment, the threads would have dissolved, but the results will still continue for many more months. Dr. Schilling recommends to repeat the procedure 6-9 months after the first procedure, to allow for a long lasting result of up to 3 years.
The PDO Thread lift can be combined with other treatments such as neurotoxins (Botox), fillers, PRF, PRP, or Ultherapy to give a natural lifting result. It works particularly well with bio-stimulating fillers such as Radiesse, Sculptra, and Hyaluronic Acid fillers – to provide a comprehensive anti-aging solution which now allows us to turn back the clock for our patients, like never before, without surgery.
