PDO Threading in Miami
Have you noticed sagging along your jawline or under your eyes? As we age, gravity begins to take its toll, creating jowls, folds, and an overall aging effect. To make it worse, our bodies often lose the fat that gives our faces defined features, and our support structures aren’t as strong as before.
Fortunately, there are quick, non-surgical options to turn back the clock. A thread lift can address issues of sagging without any downtime and with minimal discomfort.
What Is PDO Threading?
PDO threading originated from the ancient practice of acupuncture, which involves the strategic placement of needles to realign the body’s energy and address a variety of health concerns. Although it evolved from medical treatment, thread lift therapy is primarily a cosmetic procedure. Its primary purpose is to tighten sagging skin, thereby giving you a more youthful appearance.
For the past 15 years, PDO threading has been used to treat a range of areas:
- Marionette lines
- Naso-labial folds
- Upper and lower cheeks
This treatment isn’t limited to the face; it can tighten skin on the abdomen, arms, and buttocks as well.
What Are Novathreads?
The term “thread lift” may seem intimidating, especially if you’re not familiar with the process. First and foremost, Novathreads are nothing like sewing or craft thread. They’re made of polydioxanone, which is what PDO stands for.
Novathreads are commonly used in surgery since the human body can fully absorb them over time. In fact, polydioxanone is one of the safest substances for internal medical procedures. You may also end up saving money if you choose this alternative, as Nova threads cost much less than a traditional facelift.
How Do They Work?
Novathreads are preloaded into hypodermic needles to make the treatment process quick and easy. The needles are used to insert the threads beneath the skin, where they’ll gradually be absorbed over the course of four to six months.
During this time, your skin will go to work. The presence of the Novathreads stimulates a selective inflammatory response, which means your body recognizes that it needs to heal itself in that area. This causes your body to create more collagen, which increases your skin’s elasticity and helps you look younger.
What Are the Benefits?
One of the most significant benefits of thread lift therapy is convenience. You don’t have to worry about the obstacles that surgery may present:
- Time off for recovery
- Risk of medical complications
- Potential scarring
- Need to arrange for travel and care the day of due to sedation
You can make a lunch appointment, get treated, and return to work that same afternoon.
What Can You Expect From the Procedure?
Immediately after treatment, you may notice dimpling or bunching in the area. However, this should go away in a week or so. You may also experience bruising or swelling, but these symptoms typically disappear in less than a week.
Because this treatment relies on the body’s natural healing process, you probably won’t notice any immediate tightening effects. However, as the collagen builds, you’ll start noticing results. Most people see a significant difference after one month. The maximum effects are generally visible by three months and can last up to a year.
