Nonsurgical Facelift

Our med spa offers the latest advances in nonsurgical facial rejuvenation to Vero Beach residents who want to tighten sagging skin without surgery. At White Orchid Spa, we offer the PDO thread lift, a treatment that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using absorbable threads made of polydioxanone (PDO).

What It Treats

Even though our nurses can insert threads almost anywhere in the face, threads are especially effective in the neck and jawline. The lower third of the face is the area targeted by surgical facelifts and can be the most challenging to treat effectively with BOTOX® Cosmetic or injectable fillers. A thread lift is best used to address skin laxity in the jowls and the neck.

How It Works

A PDO thread lift involves using a specialized syringe, called a cannula, to inject very fine, absorbable PDO threads into the skin or the subcutaneous fat of the specific treatment areas. The use of a blunt-tip cannula lowers the risks of bruising and swelling as it does not damage any blood vessels during the procedure. The tension in the PDO threads pulls the skin together to create a lifted effect, tightening sagging skin, especially in the jawline and neck.

The triggers the natural healing response, which involves the production of new collagen around each thread inserted into the skin. Collagen is one of the essential elements of smooth, youthful-looking skin. The healing process strengthens the skin and increases the blood flow to the dermis. When the threads dissolve in the months following the procedure, the bundles of collagen that were formed will keep the skin tight, supple, and rejuvenated.

Who can benefit from a PDO thread lift?

If you are looking for a nonsurgical, safe, and cost-effective procedure to restore health and youthfulness to the skin on the lower area of the face, you might be the right candidate for a thread lift. The ideal candidate has good skin quality, moderate sagging in the mid-face and strong underlying bone structure. Patients with very thin skin, little underlying fat, or excessive sagging are not well-suited for a thread lift.

Your Results

People who get PDO thread lifts typically see a natural and immediate lifted appearance. The final results are usually visible a few weeks after the procedure as more collagen bundles form around the PDO threads, resulting in a more lifted and rejuvenated look.

You can expect an overall improvement in your skin’s texture and appearance because the procedure is effective at diminishing fine lines and wrinkles as it lifts saggy or droopy skin. The desired results can last up to 24 months. Combining a thread lift with other anti-aging treatments such as laser skin resurfacing, BOTOX®, and filler injections can create comprehensive results that restore and rejuvenate your appearance.
