Top PDO Thread lift Treatment in NJ

A youthful face is a full , lifted face. PDO Thread Lifting is a procedure in which a absorbable suture is used to lift the skin into a more youthful position. As the suture absorbs, it creates collagen in this lifted position.  It can be used throughout the face and neck, including the cheeks, upper and lower lips, forehead and neck.

Different Types of Thread Lifts

PDO threads, composed of polydioxanone, can come in many shapes and sizes.  They can be smooth, barbed and twisted. The barbed suture can be used to lift, while the smooth and twisted sutures are helpful in creating smoother and youthful skin by stimulating collagen production.  The suture will dissolve within 4-6 months, but the effects of lifting and volumizing last over a year.

Lift Procedure

This in-office procedure is done first by applying local and topical anesthetic. Dr. Undavia will carefully map out the areas of the face that need to be lifted and volumized. Then more local anesthesia is infiltrated in the areas of the suture placement.   After a few minutes, the threads are introduced at the appropriate areas. There is minimal to no discomfort. The lift is immediately felt.  As the sutures are being placed, massaging in the direction of the lift is done.  Once the sutures are placed, the areas are cleaned off and the procedure is complete.  The entire procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes and patients can drive themselves home.  Exercise is to be resumed after two days.

Side Effects of Thread Lifting Treatment

Thread lifts are a relatively new and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can help reverse the signs of aging. The thread lift utilizes threads made of biodegradable material to effectively lift sagging skin on the face and neck. However, like all procedures, thread lifts come with some potential side effects.

The most common thread lift-related side effects include swelling, bruising, redness, tenderness at the injection site, numbness or tingling sensation in the treatment area, and itching or irritation around treated areas. These effects should be minimal and usually diminish within a few days of the thread lift treatment as your body adjusts to its new shape. In rare cases there may be allergic reactions to the thread material, which can cause itching and redness.

It’s important to attend follow-up appointments with us to ensure that the thread is properly secured.

Finally, thread lifts may require touch ups after a few months for optimal results as the threads naturally dissolve over time. Although thread lifts are generally considered safe procedures, it’s always important to consult with a licensed medical professional before undergoing any cosmetic treatments. By understanding all possible side effects associated with thread lifting you can make better-informed decisions about your health and appearance.
