Cutis PDO Thread Lift: The Non-Invasive Answer to a Face Lift
When it comes to anti-ageing therapies, non-invasive is the preferred route to take. Matched with the right doctor, certified products and procedures, it can be easier than ever too.
If you are looking for a treatment that can result in a smoother, facelift without the risks of a surgical procedure, a PDO Lift can do wonders to increase collagen and consequent skin rejuvenation.
What is a Cutis PDO Thread?
The Cutis PDO or Polydioxanone thread is a safe and US FDA cleared absorbable material. This thread has been used for over 30 years for wound closure in many areas of medicine including plastic surgery, gynaecology and eye surgery, among others. It’s nature to completely dissolve in the body within 12 months makes PDO threads a new ingredient in aesthetic treatments to naturally lift sagging skin without surgery.
What happens in a Cutis PDO Thread Lift Procedure?
To make the treatment more comfortable, the thread lift procedure starts with the application of a numbing agent. The Cutis PDO threads are then inserted under the skin with a blunt-tip cannula, a very thin tube that does not damage the blood vessels reducing the risk of bruising and swelling.
No cut is needed, once the threads are in place a slight compression of the tissue maybe done to reshape it by hand and get that desired and immediate lifting effect.
Besides from giving a natural lift, the Cutis PDO threads also stimulate the production of new collagen and synthesis of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin - both of which are vital for keeping the skin looking plump and youthful. This means that as your skin heals, the PDO threads strengthen it through collagen formation. When these threads dissolve, all this collagen keeps the skin tight and rejuvenated.
Why Cutis PDO Threads? What are the benefits?
Not only targeting your face, the lift also works on your neck and jawline area. Furthermore, the Cutis PDO threads also stimulate new collagen production that prolongs the rejuvenation of the skin, making it firmer and looking more youthful. Not a very long procedure (about an hour on average), there is no scarring involved. The treatment also encourages build-up of more collagen, thus letting you enjoy the effects for a couple of years.
