PDO thread lift; lift and collagen stimulation with wires
Although in the Netherlands is still relatively new, this treatment with wires is in other parts of the world, eg. In Asia already very popular.
Without surgery our doctors can create a lift of, for example, your cheeks, jawline, forehead or cleavage. This gives a beautiful result, in some cases comparable to a surgical facelift.
In addition, PDO collagen stimulation provides easy solutions to problems that were difficult to treat with Botox or fillers, such as sagging skin under the eyes, neck and décolleté.
In case of the thread lift we work with PDO (polydioxanone) threads. These are soluble sutures that have been used for many years in different operations in the surgery. This technique uses the natural ability of the skin to produce collagen. The PDO threads are arranged in the skin with a very thin needle. As a result, the collagen synthesis is stimulated, and precisely in the direction of the thread a tight collage network is formed. The thread dissolves slowly, while this collagen network gives a lasting strengthening of the skin. The thread lift can be used for almost all areas. Problem areas such as the neck, décolleté and cheeks can be lifted very naturaly. But also the skin under the eyes, chin and …. can be strengthened.
What is the treatment?
With the aid of a thin injection needle, the threads are placed one at a time under the skin. In general, it is not necessary to use an anesthesia by the treatment. If desired anesthetic cream can be used. The threads are placed at strategic locations in order to achieve a natural lift. Because the thread is placed in the middle layer of the skin, it is not visible. In 4-6 months the threads dissolve completely. During this process, forms collagen in the tissue surrounding the thread. The collagen provides strengthening of skin and gives a lifting effect.
After the treatment
After the treatment you immediately see already some of the improvement. The skin is firmer, fuller, lines and wrinkles are less visible. Possible bruising that can occur are often easy to camouflage.
The result of the thread lift is optimal after 2 to 3 months. The thread lift has a long-lasting effect of an average of 2 years. Because after two months there is enough collagen generated to evaluate the results, then the final result will be reviewed . If desired, there can be an additional treatment in order to maximize the effect, in the form of the placement of more threads. Our doctors can advise you further on additional treatments with peelings or injectables, so the best possible result can be achieved.
The main side effects of this treatment are temporary redness, swelling and / or bruising. These symptoms are temporary and disappear after a few days.
PDO threads for many years been used in the regular surgery, gynecology and ophthalmology and regards as completely safe.
