What is a PDO Thread Lift?
A beautiful and healthy face has a natural “V-shape”. Due to age and gravity, the beautiful “V-shape” can be diminished or inverted. Properly placed PDO threads work to support the tissues and keep them in the “V-shape” or, where necessary, delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the “V-shape” where it has been lost.
A thread lift uses temporary sutures that are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, Dr. Lanna simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face.
In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body’s “healing response” and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the aging process.
FDA-approved PDO threads work to improve the appearance of:
- Under-eye area
- Crow’s feet
- Naso jugal folds
- Nasolabial folds
- Wrinkles around mouth
- Softened jawline
