PDO Thread Lifts

in Prescott, AZ

What Is a Thread Lift?

At Salud Spa, a PDO thread lift is a nonsurgical procedure that lifts and tightens sagging facial skin. It’s an ideal alternative for patients who are not ready for a surgical facelift but still want an effective alternative for addressing signs of aging, like mild to moderate skin laxity and wrinkles. Nurse practitioner Chrissie Seals and Dr. Robert Seals employ dissolvable sutures made from polydioxanone, which are injected into the facial skin and pulled tight to produce the desired amount of volume and lift. Sometimes called a “lunchtime facelift,” a thread lift does not involve extensive recovery time. Schedule a consultation at our office in Prescott, AZ to see whether a thread lift is a good aesthetic option for your goals.

What are the benefits of a thread lift?

Loose or wrinkled skin is the result of factors like aging, sun damage, weight loss, and pregnancy. Though some people turn to invasive measures like plastic surgery for correction, a PDO thread lift does not require incisions, general anesthesia, or even a lengthy recovery period. Some benefits of our popular thread lift include:

Immediate results:

A PDO thread lift provides an immediate lifting effect that can be seen right away.

Natural-looking results:

The threads dissolve over time, leaving behind newly produced collagen for outcomes that appear natural.

Minimal risks and side effects:

PDO thread lifts come with very minimal risks and side effects when performed by an expert member of our team.

Youthful Improvements

If you’re looking to minimize signs of aging without cosmetic surgery or extensive downtime, a thread lift might be an excellent aesthetic treatment option for you. Chrissie and Dr. Seals are pleased to offer this minimally invasive procedure to address skin laxity and produce a smoother, tighter appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for a thread lift?
A consultation with our team in Prescott, AZ, will help determine whether a thread lift is right for your needs. Ideal candidates have mild to moderate loose skin but are not ready for invasive cosmetic procedures like a facelift. Please inform us about any allergies or medical conditions that may interfere with your thread lift results. Our goal is always to provide the safest and most effective care possible. Patients who are pregnant or have an active infection in the treatment area are not candidates for a thread lift at this time.
How Is a Thread Lift Performed?
As an outpatient procedure done at our Prescott, AZ office, a thread lift takes about an hour to perform. Normally, a local anesthetic is used to numb the treatment areas and help keep you comfortable. Chrissie or Dr. Seals will place the threads into selected regions of your face using a fine needle. The sutures will be gently pulled to create a lifted appearance and a youthful-looking result. After a thread lift, it’s common to have some temporary swelling and redness. Be sure to avoid strenuous activities, and keep your head elevated for the next three days. Within about a week, you should begin to notice your renewed outcomes. The PDO threads help to promote collagen and elastin growth for continued improvements over the next 12 – 18 months.
Does a thread lift hurt?
No, most people don’t find a thread lift painful. Before we begin, the treatment area is numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. There can be a slight tugging or pulling sensation as the threads are inserted and placed, but it typically isn’t uncomfortable. After your thread lift is finished, some mild redness, swelling, and tenderness may be expected, but it usually goes away within a few days.
How long does a thread lift take to complete?
Most thread lifts can be completed in 45 minutes or less.
When can I expect to see results from my thread lift?
A number of patients can see improvements from their thread lift within about seven days; however, on average, most patients can see results in about 3 – 4 weeks that continue to improve over 12 – 18 months.
How long do the results of a thread lift last?
Most patients can expect the results of their thread lift to last about 18 months or longer before a maintenance procedure may be recommended.
