One of the most common and obvious signs of aging is sagging skin. While sagging skin isn’t harmful to your health or wellbeing, it has a way of affecting your self-confidence. PDO thread lifting is a safe and effective way to lift and tighten sagging skin, helping you achieve your goals of a younger-looking profile.
PDO threads provide an instant and natural looking result immediately after treatment. This continues to get better and dramatically improve over the following 12 weeks post treatment.
PDO threads threads work in two ways, firstly physical notching on the thread’s surface can create an instant mechanical lifting action.
Secondly, their presence in the body creates a local controlled trauma to the area which then triggers the body’s own physiological responses to produce collagen. Once the threads are inserted under the skin, they induce a local inflammatory response as the body’s natural defence mechanisms kick in in response to a foreign object. As the threads are naturally resorbed , they stimulate the production of collagen molecules as well as inducing a reactive fibrosis effect surrounding them, which maintains the lifting outcomes beyond their resorption.
Protein synthesis that begins around 10-14 days after treatment as the body begins to break the threads down. The protein synthesis stimulates collagen and elastin production in the tissues where the threads are placed resulting in long lasting results from this treatment. Results can last 12-24 months but are varied from person to person.
