Have you been tempted to look up facelifts in Miami, but you just aren’t there yet? Do you wish there was another way to get the benefits of a facelift without the surgery? A PDO thread lift from Elite Styles Salon & Med Spa in Miami may be for you.
What Is a PDO Thread?
The PDO lift is a revolutionary, minimally invasive procedure that is an alternative to a traditional facelift. PDO lifts are done by carefully injecting dissolvable, biocompatible threads made from a polydioxanone or PDO material under the subdermal layer of the skin. The PDO threads grip onto the tissue around it, enabling it to provide a lifting action. The soft tissue’s resulting support tightens and contours the face and eye area, sometimes referred to as Foxy eyes, giving you a more youthful, rested look.
PDO thread lifts are very popular in South Beach for their ease to administer and the minimal downtime. The areas where PDO threading is most commonly used include:
- Around and under the eyes
- Around the mouth
- Nasojugal folds (the slight diagonal crease above the cheek and under the eye)
- Nasolabial folds (smile or laugh lines)
Is a PDO Thread Lift Safe?
PDO threading is very safe. It is a minimally invasive, non-surgical facelift, and leverages medical technology that has been around for decades. Materials and techniques have evolved to provide effective, long-lasting results. PDO threads are biocompatible, which means that the surrounding tissue will not be harmed when in contact with the material.
Once the threads are in place, the body begins to produce collagen as a part of the natural healing process. Collagen is the building block for bones and soft tissue structure, including skin, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. PDO threads will dissolve after four to six months, but the new collagen will continue to support the lifted tissues for many months after that.
Since the procedure is performed using injections, the recovery period is much shorter and more comfortable than a traditional facelift. While you may experience swelling and have to modify your activities for a period after PDO threading, you’ll be back to the beach, eating at restaurants, or strolling Art Basel Miami in no time. You might be surprised at how many of those people walking by you on Ocean Drive with that naturally youthful and rested look have had a non-surgical facelift.
How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last?
The non-surgical facelift takes less than an hour to perform, yet the results last for one to three years, depending upon the areas treated, the lifestyle, and the individual. Your doctor can give you a better estimate after your consultation. The thread lifting procedure provides many benefits:
- Improved appearance of skin
- Increased collagen production
- Lifted and tightened contours
- Minimal downtime
- No incisions
How Much Is a PDO Thread Lift?
The PDO thread lift is much less expensive than a traditional facelift. There could be many factors that affect your particular procedure’s price, including the number of threads needed to provide the results you wish to see.
