Effective Non-Surgical Facelift with PDO Thread Lift Treatment
PDO Thread Lift is an effective anti-ageing treatment that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue. This minimally-invasive treatment uses threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO) and introduce them into the subcutaneous layer of the skin. This process stimulates collagen growth which is beneficial for skin lifting and rejuvenative effects.
Because of its convenient procedure that yields visible result, PDO Thread Lift is sometimes known as the ‘lunchtime facelift’ or ‘weekend facelift’ because it can be completed in about an hour. Achieving a visible lifting effect without any potential surgical risks and long downtime, it is no wonder that PDO Thread Lift has become a popular alternative to a surgical facelift in Singapore.
PDO threads are unique, new monofilament suture that are used by most surgeons for surgical procedures.
About 9 months after the procedure, the PDO threads will be absorbed into your body by simple hydrolysis. The lifted facial contours will remain for at least another 2 years due to the collagen stimulation.
How is PDO thread face lift done?
PDO Thread Lift is a medical technique done by the doctor to lift and tighten sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls and neck.
Inserting thin, dissolvable PDO threads under the skin, the procedure immediately lifts and anchors sagging skin and fat to reverse the merciless effects of aging. The threads form a support structure for the tissue so that you look visibly lifted, yet natural. In addition, the threads kick start the cellular rejuvenation process in your skin by stimulating them to produce new collagen. In fact, the lifting and rejuvenative effects continue for months after the treatment.
Our PDO Thread Face Lift technique, specially designed by Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, improves on the highly popular Korean PDO thread lift procedure. We use a combination of PDO threads of different lengths to place in different layers of the skin. This method produces maximal and effective lifting with minimum downtime.
Is the procedure safe?
This treatment is completely safe because PDO threads will be broken down in 6-8 months after the treatment. The treatment uses threads made of polydioxanone that are 100% bio-compatible and bio-absorbable. This material is used for a long time by surgeons for their surgical procedures. As a result, your face will be more lifted with the production of collagen in the process.
Lift sagging skin and redefine your facial contours with this innovative, non-surgical skin tightening and lifting procedure. Our in-house technique designed by Dr. Siew is based on the popular Korean PDO thread lift, where demands for a V-shape facial contour is high.
What areas can be treated with PDO thread face lift?
Areas that can benefit from the treatment include:
- Nasolabial folds
- Jaw line
Consult your doctor because he may recommend a combination of treatments to achieve the best result for you.
What results can I expect after the treatment?
The sutures provide support to lift sagging skin and place them in its new lifted position. The bio-compatible threads are lined with barbs to anchor the sagging skin. Your skin will continue to undergo rejuvenative effects by stimulating collagen production to replace loss volume in the face due to natural aging process.
Approximately 9 months after the treatment, the threads would have dissolved. Your face will restore its volume and plumping effects will be visible. Lines will soften and you will achieve a V-Shaped face with lifted contours and better definition.
Thread lift treatment: Silhouette Soft or PDO?
PDO threads has stronger lifting capabilities as compared to Silhouette Soft Thread Lift solely because it uses more threads to lift sagging skin whereas Silhouette Soft Thread Lift typically uses 1-2 pairs. PDO threads focus on tightening and lifting heavier skin to provide a V-shaped face. PDO threads come in different lengths and this provides the doctors more customised treatment for different patients.
Who is a suitable candidate for PDO thread lift?
PDO Thread Lift is an effective non-surgical face-lifting treatment that is suitable for anyone looking to improve the appearance of sagging skin. This treatment is also suitable for people who want to attain a visible lift of the facial contours without undergoing a facelift surgery. Best suited for men and women who are unwilling to tolerate the long downtime of a facelift surgery but want to look refresh and lifted – naturally.
Any side effects and restrictions to take note of?
The patient may experience some soreness which may last for 3-5 days. This is perfectly normal as it will take about one week for the soreness to subside.
Following 2 weeks after the treatment, patients are discouraged from undergoing any dental treatment and participate in any rigorous physical activities. Patients are also advised to sleep on their back to allow the swelling to subside and to avoid the putting pressure on the face that might cause misalignment of the threads.
Any risks or complications?
In the hands of an experienced doctor, you can be assured of a comfortable experience with a natural, beautiful lifted face.
If carried out by an inexperienced doctor, there is a chance of getting puckering, depression, visible subcutaneous knots, and other skin irregularities with thread lift.
