An Instant Facelift Without the Risk of Surgical Scars: PDO Thread Lifting in Dearborn, MI

Thread Lifting Tightens Your Skin in Just One Appointment
We know it’s frustrating that as you get older, your age begins to show. In some cases, your skin can betray you to even look older than you actually are, leaving you lacking self-confidence. Luckily, PDO thread lifting offers an easy solution to your face or neck lift wishes. Using dissolvable sutures, PDO thread lifting is a process in which a medical professional inserts a very fine needle to weave the sutures into your facial tissue and pull the skin upward, giving you an instant face lift. These are popularly used on the eyebrows, cheeks, jaw, and neck; however, it can be used essentially anywhere on your body.
This relatively painless procedure is facilitated in our office under a topical anesthetic. We then will draw markings on your skin to designate where the skin will be lifted. When the area is numb, we begin inserting the sutures beneath the skin and wrapping the thread around the sagging skin. When we retract the needle, the thread pulls the skin up creating a lifting effect. The number of sutures necessary depends on the amount of lift you want. Because this treatment requires no cutting or surgical incisions, there is no scarring or visible remnants of the procedure.Schedule an Appointment
What Can I Expect After My Thread Lifting Procedure?
Following your appointment, most patients are able to return to their daily activities with no downtime. If you do experience any pain, it can usually be managed with general pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Icing the area can help with any swelling or discomfort, as well. Once any swelling or bruising has subsided, your results will become evident in about 1-2 weeks. One of the upsides of this treatment is that it stimulates your skin to produce more collagen, prolonging the results long after the sutures have dissolved. Typically, the results last for several months and can last longer depending on how much collagen your body produces. Of course, the procedure can be repeated if you want to restore your tight skin.Contact Beauty and Wellness Med Spa
Most of the time, PDO thread lifting is exclusive to the face and neck in areas including:
- Jaw Line
- Nasal Folds
- Crows Feet
- And More
However, thread lifting is an available option for more areas than those mentioned. If you would like to know if an area of your body would be appropriate for PDO thread lifting, feel free to contact us today!
The main side effect of thread lifting is bruising and swelling (as is normal with any needling procedure). Usually, this is minimal and is gone within a week or two. Every once in a while, a patient’s body will reject the sutures. If they become visible underneath your skin or migrate to an area they aren’t supposed to, contact us to correct or replace them as soon as possible.
If you are in need of a minimal facelift, thread lifting is the perfect solution for you. Other candidates include people who have had previous plastic surgery work done and are starting to see some drooping. If you are hesitant to undergo a major surgical procedure such as a face or neck lift, or would like a less expensive option, PDO thread lifting is a better choice for you.
Besides giving you a more youthful appearance, thread lifting has additional benefits that patients appreciate, including:
- Rapid Recovery with Little to No Downtime
- No Scarring
- Cost-Effective Compared to a Surgical Facelift Procedure
- Can be Combined with Other Treatments Including Botox, Microneedling, and More
