Can you see or feel the threads after a thread lift?
At RejuvenationMD, we always use the highest quality threads on the market and ensure we place them correctly, so it is extremely rare that patients would see the threads after the procedure.
The sutures naturally dissolve in your body, so if you can feel their presence in any way initially, this will subside and they will not be visibly noticeable.
What is the PDO thread lift procedure like?
During a thread lift, a number of fine threads will be placed safely and accurately to address and correct the area of concern.
Depending on your treatment area and goals, your PDO thread treatment can take 5-90 minutes.
When will I see the results of my PDO thread lift?
Most of our patients see final results in 3-5 months, after their new collagen has developed.
You may also notice an immediate lift, but it takes time for your body to generate collagen and elastin.
As the threads dissolve, the areas treated will maintain their shape thanks to new collagen production. Your body will naturally absorb all PDO material within 6-12 months, and your collagen production will then slow down.
What other procedures can a thread lift be combined with?
Threads have become one of our more popular treatments because we can add them to enhance the results of many of the other procedures we offer at RejuvenationMD.
We often add threads to the Vampire Breast Lift® and the Vampire Face Lift® to add extra lifting and firming to these nonsurgical treatments, giving our patients the most bang for their buck.
We also use PDO threads with Botox® and dermal fillers to smooth lines and add volume.
Should I get fillers or a thread lift?
If your goal is to lift skin, threads are undoubtedly a wonderful option. If your goal is to restore lost volume and soften lines and wrinkles, fillers are an extraordinary choice.
If you’re concerned about loose skin, volume loss, and wrinkles, we may recommend combining PDO threads with fillers for best results.
Thread lift vs. face lift: Which one should I get?
If the loose skin in your face and neck is only mild to moderate, you may effectively improve the appearance and prevent further signs of aging with a PDO thread lift. They create a more subtle and natural result than a surgical face lift would, so it’s important to consult with a provider as well as have realistic expectations about your results going into your PDO thread lift.
If you are a good candidate for a thread lift, there are many advantages of this non-surgical procedure as compared to the face lift, including:
- Less invasive
- Fewer risks
- Shorter recovery time
- Stimulates natural collagen to improve the health and appearance of your skin
- More affordable
If you have a busy work life and/or children at home to take care of, fitting a thread treatment into your schedule is much more convenient than a surgical face lift, which involves quite a lengthy recovery period.
