PDO Thread Lifts by SkinSplendid in New York NY

Do you want to achieve a more youthful appearance without resorting to invasive surgery? You might want to consider PDO thread lifts—a revolutionary cosmetic procedure swiftly gaining popularity for its ability to rejuvenate facial contours with finesse. But what exactly are PDO thread lifts, and how do they manage to uplift sagging skin and enhance facial volume?

Keep reading to unravel the mystery behind PDO thread lifts, exploring their transformative potential and the science that makes them a coveted choice for facial rejuvenation.

What are PDO Thread Lifts?

PDO thread lifts represent a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to revitalize facial contours, offering a subtle yet noticeable lift to areas affected by sagging skin and loss of volume. These innovative treatments involve strategically placing dissolvable threads under the skin’s surface to enhance the overall appearance of targeted facial regions.

PDO threads work their magic by providing a support structure for sagging skin and tissue. Once inserted into specific areas, these fine, absorbable threads act as scaffolding, lifting and supporting the tissues. 

They stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, gradually improving skin texture and contributing to a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. This unique ability to lift and volumize facial areas has made PDO thread lifts a sought-after solution for individuals seeking facial rejuvenation without the downtime associated with surgery.

At the heart of PDO thread lifts lies polydioxanone (PDO), a biocompatible material renowned for its safety and compatibility with the human body. PDO has a long-established track record in various medical fields, including surgery, where it’s commonly used in sutures for closing incisions. In PDO thread lifts, these specialized threads, made from PDO, are skillfully inserted beneath the skin. Over time, the body naturally absorbs them, leaving a rejuvenated appearance.

Types of PDO Thread Lifts At Skin Splendid

Up-Do Lift PDO Threads

Skin Splendid offers Up-Do Lift PDO Threads to create a lifted and volumized effect in the forehead and temple areas. These specialized PDO suspension threads aim to mimic the appearance of a tightened ponytail, enhancing the contours of these facial regions.

Up-Do Lift PDO Threads generally start at $1500 and vary based on individual requirements. This treatment targets the forehead and temple areas, providing a lifted and rejuvenated appearance.

Smooth PDO Threads

Smooth PDO Threads, available at Skin Splendid, can tighten tissues and stimulate collagen production. These threads, designed for tissue enhancement, contribute to a softer, more youthful-looking complexion.

Smooth PDO Threads typically cost $200 for a set of six threads. They gently tighten tissues and trigger the body’s natural collagen-building process, improving skin texture and firmness.

Silhouette InstaLift®

Skin Splendid offers Silhouette InstaLift®, a specialized treatment targeting jawline laxity. These minimally invasive threads, known as Silhouette Lift sutures, aim to provide an instant lift while aiding collagen rebuilding.

Silhouette InstaLift® is priced at approximately $600 per thread, varying based on individual requirements. It primarily targets the jawline area, offering an immediate lifting effect. As the sutures dissolve, they contribute to long-term collagen production, ensuring a lasting improvement in jawline definition and firmness.

Silhouette Lift sutures gradually dissolve over time, encouraging the body’s natural collagen production. This dual-action approach provides an initial lift and supports sustained collagen synthesis, contributing to prolonged firmness and definition in the treated area.

How do PDO Thread Lifts work?

PDO thread lifts operate on a simple yet effective principle, harnessing the body’s natural regenerative processes to restore firmness and rejuvenate facial contours. These specialized threads, composed of polydioxanone (PDO), are delicately inserted beneath the skin’s surface in predetermined patterns and directions. Once in place, they act as a framework, supporting tissues and initiating a cascading response in the skin.

The insertion process involves the placement of PDO threads into specific areas of concern, targeting sagging or lax tissues. Skilled practitioners strategically position these threads to create a scaffolding effect, gently lifting and repositioning the skin. 

As the threads are placed, they provide immediate mechanical support, lending structure to the treated area. Over time, the threads trigger a natural healing response within the body, stimulating collagen production around the threads. This gradual collagen synthesis further reinforces the lifting effect, improving skin texture and firmness.

The enduring effects of PDO thread lift extend beyond the initial lifting and firming. As the PDO threads gradually dissolve, the body metabolizes them, leaving new collagen fibers interwoven within the tissues.

This sustained collagen synthesis fosters long-term rejuvenation, enhancing skin elasticity and promoting a youthful appearance. The newly stimulated collagen continues to provide structural support, ensuring a lasting improvement in facial contours, texture, and firmness even after the threads have dissolved.

What are the advantages of PDO Thread Lifts?

PDO thread lifts offer a range of advantages in the realm of facial rejuvenation:

  • Non-Surgical Approach: Unlike invasive surgical procedures, PDO thread lifts provide a non-surgical alternative with minimal downtime for individuals seeking facial rejuvenation.
  • Immediate Lifting Effect: These treatments offer immediate lifting and repositioning of sagging or lax tissues, delivering noticeable yet natural-looking results soon after the procedure.
  • Collagen Stimulation: PDO threads stimulate collagen production, ensuring ongoing improvements in skin texture, elasticity, and firmness over time.
  • Versatile Application: With different types of threads available, PDO thread lifts can address various facial areas, including the forehead, temples, jawline, and cheeks, providing versatile options tailored to individual needs.

What are the factors to consider before opting for PDO Thread Lifts?

Before undergoing PDO thread lifts, several factors warrant consideration:

  • Consultation and Expectations: A thorough consultation with a qualified professional is crucial to discuss expectations, candidacy, and potential outcomes based on individual facial concerns.
  • Individual Response: While PDO thread lifts are generally safe, individual responses may vary. Understanding potential risks, such as bruising, swelling, or rare complications, is essential.
  • Post-Treatment Care: Adhering to post-treatment care guidelines, such as avoiding vigorous activities and following skincare recommendations, contributes to optimal results and recovery.

What can you expect after a PDO thread lift procedure?

The results of PDO thread lifts are visible immediately post-procedure, offering an immediate improvement in facial contours and firmness. However, the full effects, including collagen synthesis and enhanced skin quality, become more apparent gradually over several weeks to months. 

The duration of effectiveness varies among individuals but commonly lasts up to 12 to 18 months. Regular maintenance sessions can extend and optimize the results over time.
