The thread lift is the non-surgical treatment of inserting with a very fine needle special dissolvable threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO) into the areas of loosening or sagging skin and sometimes the muscle, to tighten and lift the skin.
You may want a tighter, fresher more youthful look, without surgical interventions and extended recovery time. Then, you should seriously consider this treatment.
The PDO threads have a powerful dual effect of immediate lifting and stimulation of your body’s Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid that can last 1-2 years. The thread itself dissolves into your body in between 180 – 240 days, after generation of new fibrous connective tissue around the thread which maintains the lift and tightening the skin.
We can implement Polydioxanone Threads lift to face, neck, décolletage, hands, breasts, inner arms, thighs and other body areas. And, we can combine those with Botulinum Toxin, Dermal Fillers, Mesotherapy, PRP and Aqualyx for maximum effect.
At Aesthetic&Wellness, we look to manage treatment discomfort as much as possible. For that, use anaesthetic creams that dramatically reduce the pain of injections. Most patients don’t consider it to be a painful treatment, but it is not painless.
The threads may cause a mild to moderate swelling, redness and bruising with some patients. It usually happens if we use threads around sensitive areas as a result of the injections. It often is mild. But we can’t rule out it being severe, lasting from a few days to a week to recover. The application of an ice pack, recovery creams, and mild painkillers such as ibuprofen and paracetamol can eliminate discomfort.
The procedure takes approximately 60 minutes.
“Fillers are for volume. Botox restricts wrinkle-causing muscle movement. And, cosmetic surgery cuts out excess tissue to treat significant laxity,” Dr Frank says. “Thread lifts can’t replace a face-lift; however, in combination with other treatments, they can help delay the inevitable.”
