    Is PDO Thread Lift a Permanent Facelift?

    Is PDO Thread Lift a Permanent Facelift?Individuals who seek facial rejuvenation but are reluctant to undergo a surgical procedure can now enjoy remarkable results with a non-surgical option – PDO thread lift. This innovative procedure encourages collagen and elastin production in skin tissues to reduce many problematic signs of facial aging. 

    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 locations.

    How long do the outcomes sustain?

    The PDO thread comprises absorbable material. The body will reabsorb the Nu-mesh threads within four to six months, leaving behind firmer and more youthful-looking skin. The results of the treatment will last for another 18 to 24 months.

    PDO thread lift does not offer permanent outcomes, unlike a facelift. The outcomes will typically sustain for up to two years. However, the procedure can be repeated in the future to prolong the cosmetic benefits. 

    Incisions and scarring are a part of traditional facelifts. But, the PDO thread lift is performed by inserting absorbable sutures into the tissue for instant firming and lifting. In areas with significant loss of volume such as around the jaw and the cheeks, this procedure is particularly effective.

    A major advantage of this procedure is that the sutures promote the production of collagen and elastin in the treated areas. After healing from the procedure, the skin recreates its base so that the final results appear natural.  

    How does the Nu-mesh non-surgical facelift work?

    Three types of threads may be inserted into the skin, depending on the degree of improvement required and the amount of tissue requiring treatment. One type of thread can effectively reduce fine lines and tighten the skin.

    Another type of thread is suitable for reshaping and contouring sagging areas of the face. The third thread type provides sustainable results. The provider will recommend the type of threads that will be most appropriate for the patient based on their needs and facial features. 

    Patients enjoy both instant and progressive results as the tissue produces more collagen and elastin.


    Non-Surgical Facelifts for Both Men and Women

    Non-surgical facelifts can be an optimal option for both men and women. A PDO thread lift can be a suitable procedure for men who are bothered about the appearance of sagging skin, lines, wrinkles, and poor skin elasticity. Ideal candidates for this procedure display the following:

    • Normal skin thickness
    • Facial volume loss
    • Development of jowls
    • Loss of facial structure
    • Drooping brows
    • Sagging cheeks
    • Other signs of premature aging

    During their consultation with the treatment provider, patients can understand whether it is a suitable procedure for them. 

    How does it Work?

    PDO thread facelift technique develops tauter and smoother skin while creating a subtle lift in precise facial regions. 

    The provider inserts the biocompatible polydioxanone (PDO) threads underneath the skin, where they encourage collagen synthesis. This creates gradual improvements in the results over time in a natural way. 

    When they are inserted underneath the skin, these PDO threads act in a similar manner to a scaffold for the skin. They allow it to hold together against the effects of gravity. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for facelift without surgery (PDO thread lift).
