Surgical face-lifts can be an intimidating option, especially if you don't want to undergo surgery. There’s now a way to lift your facial skin (and other areas of your body) without surgery.
PDO threading is a minimally invasive procedure that creates a year-long tightening effect. If you aren't ready for the commitment of a full face-lift, a thread lift can be the effective alternative you need to take on the new year confidently.
At LUXE Medical Spa, our experienced team, under the direction of Sherryl Shipes, DO, offers PDO threading to our clients in the Frisco, Texas, area. If you're not sure what to expect from your thread lift, Dr. Shipes and her staff can walk you through the process and explain what to expect from your threading session.
What is PDO threading?
Polydioxanone (PDO) threading, a type of thread lift, is a skin tightening procedure in which we use needles to place dissolvable threads into areas with loose skin. The threads tighten your skin in these areas and boost collagen production over time. Even after the threads dissolve, the collagen keeps your skin tight for up to a year after treatment.
We can use PDO threading to treat your:
- Jawline and jowls
If you have any problem areas that you'd like to tighten, PDO threading might be the solution you're looking for.
What to expect from your session
PDO threading uses extremely thin needles, so you don't have to worry about visible marks or scarring. We also use local anesthesia during the injections so you don't feel any pain. The threads also cause very little inflammation, meaning you don't have to worry about a lengthy recovery after the procedure.
You might have mild swelling after your thread lift, but this dissipates quickly. You can return to your daily routine right after a thread lift.
Thread lifts are gaining popularity due to their speed, convenience, and relatively affordable cost compared to a surgical face-lift. Because the PDO threads dissolve, we can help you establish a schedule to maintain the appearance of your thread lift.
