Facelift Without Surgery: PDO Thread Lift

Facelift Without Surgery: PDO Thread Lift

Facelift Without Surgery: PDO Thread Lift | Beverly Hills | Los AngelesWhile many women and men seek to restore youthful contours of their face, they may be hesitant to undergo facelift cosmetic surgery or liposuction procedures. For such patients, the minimally invasive ‘lunchtime’ procedure, Nu-mesh PDO thread lift, may be an appropriate option. 

Nu-mesh PDO thread lift helps develop a revitalized, natural-looking neck, jawline, and face in a single in-office treatment completed within one hour. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides facelift without surgery (PDO thread lift) to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities. 

 

How does Nu-mesh PDO Thread Lift Work?

PDO thread lift procedure lifts sagging regions of skin on the face in a non-surgical manner. The procedure immediately tightens the tissue and simultaneously encourages the generation of collagen fibers in the deeper tissue layers for longer-lasting outcomes.

New collagen enhances skin volume over time. It lifts and tightens the skin for a tauter, more youthful-looking face and neck. Nu-mesh threads are medical-grade, dissolvable sutures comprising polydioxanone (PDO). These are delicately inserted into the sagging facial areas. 

A natural scaffolding of collagen is created in this process, enabling the patient to achieve firmer and more lifted face, neck, and jaw skin. The body will safely reabsorb the threads in nearly four to six months. However, the skin will appear rejuvenated and youthful for up to two years.

 

Procedure 

For the right candidate, skin firming with Nu-mesh PDO thread lift can be undertaken in almost any body area. However, the outcomes in the face and neck area are most dramatic with this procedure. 

In this procedure, the provider cautiously inserts the PDO thread needles into the targeted sites of the neck and face skin as a whole needle.

The needle reaches the interstitial tissue at a sub-dermal level in the neck and remains parallel to the superficial skin surface to produce an optimal effect. After this, the provider will gently pull the needle out, while the PDO thread remains beneath the skin. The body will slowly reabsorb the PDO suture.

Due to the absorption process, the skin’s internal repair mechanism will be triggered. This will lead to the production of new collagen over time. Consequently, the patient will experience a subtle lift in the treated areas, while the skin appears tauter and smoother. 

 

Advantages of PDO Thread Lift

The outcomes of the PDO thread lift procedure are almost immediate. The patient will notice firmer and lifted skin in the face and neck for at least one to two years. The outcomes continue to improve and appear more natural over time due to the production of new collagen fibers.

The procedure can be undertaken without any incisions and cuts and does not cause any scars or scar tissue. The duration of the procedure is under an hour, and there is little to no downtime involved.

Brow Lift (Forehead Lift) Recovery

Brow Lift (Forehead Lift) Recovery | Beverly Hills | Los AngelesA surgical procedure such as brow lift plastic surgery involves a few days of post-operative recovery. At the time of the initial consultation, the surgeon will inform the patient about the recovery process as well as the expected downtime involved. They will also provide guidelines for post-op incision care and other steps.

It is important for the patient to have clarity on the expected side effects and the potential indications of complications. They should be willing to follow the surgeon’s guidelines for a safe and predictable recovery.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides forehead lift to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

 

Recovery Experience

In the initial 48 hours following the brow lift cosmetic surgery, the patient should apply ice packs around the eyes to reduce swelling. 

In addition, they should sleep with their head in an elevated position for around one week. Some tightness in the forehead and brow regions may be felt initially. To ensure that the patient remains comfortable, the surgeon may prescribe mild pain medication for a few days.

The placement of temporary drains in the incision areas may not be a part of brow lift recovery. There may be prominent inflammation in the initial few days. 

However, it will start to subside from the second week. The patient may experience minimal bruising in the brow, and the adjacent areas may have slightly more bruising. This will subside completely in around two to three weeks. 

The patient may shower or bathe from the second day of the procedure. But they should avoid steam and sauna, hot water baths, and hairdryer use to prevent any damage to the skin or hair in the treated areas. The temporary numbness in the skin may make it risky to use hot water as the patient may not feel the heat.

The sutures may be removed nearly one week after the brow lift cosmetic surgery. The patient should perform gentle walks and light activities during the initial week. However, they should avoid aggressive exercises and activities for around three weeks or more. Post-op appointments with the surgeon should be maintained in a diligent manner to monitor progress.

 

Outcomes

The final results of a brow lift will manifest over a few months. The hairline incisions and the scalp will heal completely in around six months, creating a more youthful upper face appearance. 

While the effects of aging will continue to develop in the following years, some of the treated areas, such as the frown line region in the brows may not become severe for a long duration. 

 

Recovery Guidelines

For a safe and predictable recovery, the patient should follow the surgeon’s post-op care guidelines in a dedicated way. They should wear the bandages for around two days following the surgery as well as protect the incision areas against contaminants to mitigate infection risks.

In case the surgeon prescribes an ointment or gel to reduce scarring, the patient should use it as prescribed, but carefully avoid contact with the eyes. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for forehead lift.

Hair Thinning Treatment With PRP Injections

Hair Thinning Treatment With PRP Injections | Beverly HillsPlatelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection is an innovative procedure that can restore hair growth in a minimally invasive manner. 

This therapy has a proven record of high potential in hair rejuvenation as it uses the natural growth factors of the body to restore damaged hair follicles offering hair re-growth in regions of the scalp that have received the PRP treatment.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides advanced and proven hair restoration treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

 

PRP Hair Restoration

For a long time, researchers believed that for a long time that hair follicles that stopped producing hair are dead. However, recent studies indicate that these unproductive hair follicles are merely injured, damaged, or dormant. These follicles can be restored to re-grow hair in the long-run. The PRP hair restoration procedure enables patients to achieve this goal. 

The human body has platelet-rich plasma (PRP). This plasma comprises robust growth factors. The medical care provider will inject these growth factors into the affected areas on the scalp to activate the dead adult stem cells in the damaged hair follicle. 

Simultaneously, these growth factors enhance the re-generation of localized cells and create new blood vessels to rejuvenate the hair follicles.

 

PRP Treatment

In this procedure, the PRP treatment provider will take a small quantity of blood from the patient. They will then process this blood in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP and revitalize the growth factors within it. The provider will use a local anesthetic on the treatment site of the scalp when the PRP is ready to be injected.

The PRP hair restoration expert will inject it into the areas that are most affected by hair loss using a fine gauge needle to inject the PRP in a matrix pattern.

Depending on the patient’s unique needs, they may receive the PRP hair restoration medical spa treatment in combination with a low-level laser therapy to enhance the efficacy of the outcomes. 

 

Innovative Treatment Approaches

PRP med spa treatment results are progressively improving as hair re-growth techniques with PRP are advancing further. PRP treatment usually involves only a single treatment session. 

But some specialists recommend multiple PRP sessions to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment. In addition, this treatment helps improve the rate of hair graft survival before or during a hair transplant procedure.

 

Types of Hair Loss treatable with PRP

PRP for hair restoration offers dramatic outcomes to patients experiencing hair loss due to various medical issues, such as:

  • Alopecia Totalis
  • Alopecia Areata
  • Female Pattern Hair Loss
  • Male Pattern Hair Loss
  • Hypotrichosis
  • Hair loss due to metabolic conditions, iron deficiency, and drug side-effects.

 

PRP Results

Most patients achieve remarkable new hair growth results and improvements in hair thickness, density, and elasticity. The results of the procedure will be visible within six to eight weeks of the initial treatment.

After the first treatment, the full results from the PRP treatment will take up to one year to become apparent. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for innovative and effective hair restoration treatments.
