EllEve Med Spa provides PDO thread lift for face and neck enhancement to patients in Woodland Hills, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California, and surrounding locations.
What is a PDO Thread Lift?Thread lift involves inserting injectable and absorbable polymers using a tiny catheter. The threads are inserted into the dermis for tightening and contouring the shape of the face. The thread is made from PDO or polydioxanone which is readily absorbed by the body. The best part is that PDO thread can essentially lift the skin in targeted areas. The procedure helps in synthesizing collagen production as well. The effects of collagen remain even after the PDO threads have been absorbed naturally. Tightness in the skin continues to remain.
Long-Term Effects of a Thread LiftPDO threads leave a long-lasting effect on the skin. The actual thread will remain under the skin for 4 – 6 months before being absorbed by the body. This occurs through the natural process of hydrolysis. The best part is that the thread will keep pulling and tightening the skin the entire time. This allows the skin to remain lifted and stay in place. Collagen is produced continuously which gives patients results even when the thread has been absorbed by the body. You should see the results of a PDO thread lift last for 12 – 15 months. Results from enhanced collagen under the skin will keep getting better over time. It takes 6 – 8 months for final results to appear from a PDO thread lift. There have been a few patients that enjoyed the results of a PDO thread lift for more than 18 months.
