How do PDO Threads work?
PDO thread-lifting is a fairly a simple procedure to contour, shape, and lift the skin using threads to achieve a more youthful appearance. Over time the sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body while continuously stimulating the production of collagen and elastin fibers without an unnatural appearance. PDO thread lifts require no downtime to minimal downtime depending on the area treated and how many threads are used at one time. Results can last 18-months to 2 years on average, but often last even longer.
Dr. Finger will assess whether which brand and method is right for you, but rest assured whether it is V-Soft Lift or Insta-Lift he will find the perfect threads for you. The biggest thing is that patients looking for nonsurgical ways to rejuvenate and turn back the clock need to be aware that nothing will replace a surgical facelift and when needed Dr. Finger will be the first to tell patients to prevent unrealistic expectations. Sometimes a traditional Facelift may still be the way to go.
PDO Thread Lifts can be ideal for mild to moderate facial sagging and neck laxity as well as sagging skin around the knees or stretch-marks on the belly for example. PDO threads can also be used for correcting acne scars, traumatic scars, or necklace lines caused by constantly looking down on cellphones. PDO Threads are ideal all skin tones and men and women can equally benefit from this treatment. Dr. Finger offers PDO Thread Lift consultations in Savannah, Ga, and Bluffton, SC.
Thread-Lifts typically take 45 minutes or less to complete. Patients can see immediate results and there is little recovery time after the procedure. Patients can expect to see 30% of the result almost immediately and final result can be seen within 4-6 months on average. Post-procedure swelling and bruising is normal and lasts just a few days.
