Women and men with wrinkles, fine lines, and aging skin often look to find ways to turn back the hands of time while delaying a surgical procedure such as a facelift. Dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, as well as other skin rejuvenation treatments were the only option for a long while. Today, there are other alternatives to help create a smooth and younger looking complexion. At the ZO Skin Centre® Pasadena and San Gabriel, CA, we can inject polydioxonone (PDO) threads into areas of your face with precision and delicate care to reposition certain areas of your facial skin into a lifted, more youthful position. Thread lifting is gaining notoriety in the aesthetic field because the treatment gently disrupts your skin so that it can repair itself at the site by stimulating new collagen growth. This creates a tighter, glowing look that can last years. Thread lifting can be used on the face, as well as the chin nad neck with little to no downtime. If you are looking for a nonsurgical way to attain a younger look, we are excited to discuss this groundbreaking treatment with you.
If you are beginning to notice or are already bothered by fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkled areas on the face and neck, you may be a candidate for thread lifting. Men and women considering this treatment should have a fairly healthy skin tone, but will also be experiencing:
- Moderate wrinkles
- Mild-to-moderate skin laxity
- Fine lines
- Unbalanced or asymmetrical facial features
Thread lifting allows Men and women to come to our ZO Skin Centre® undergo facial rejuvenation without surgery. The treatment produces natural-looking results and a smoother, younger appearance.
What to Expect
Thread lifting is a treatment that takes place in-office with a local anesthetic. This helps to number the specific treatment sites to help make your skin desensitized to the needle injections. Prior to the actual treatment, we will carefully mark the injection sites with a washable marker to create a grid-like pattern that leads the practitioner to know where to enter and exit the needle. Once the skin feels numb, the threads are then weaved into the skin with a fine needle. Depending on the degree of lift and skin correction needed, we will reposition the skin so that the area appears naturally higher in position. This is accomplished with a gentle pull or one that is a bit more extensive to attain the right result. Sutures are placed and the remaining PDO thread is removed with surgical scissors. This treatment process generally lasts approximately 45 minutes to an hour depending on your specific needs and aesthetic goals.
