Valentine's Special

As skin ages, the common physical changes that most individuals develop are due to a decline in elastin and collagen production. This decrease results in visibly loose skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. While individuals with more severe signs of aging on their face and neck typically opt for facial surgery, some of these procedures might be too aggressive for milder degrees of skin laxity. In these cases, there are several options available for non-surgical facelifts.

A PDO thread lift in Indiana is one of the more effective approaches for rejuvenating the face and neck skin long-term without needing a lengthy recovery period. At The Centre, P.C., we can customize a unique treatment plan for you that addresses your specific aesthetic goals and restores your feelings of vitality and confidence. Contact us today for a private consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.

PDO Thread Lift as a Facelift Alternative

Facelift surgery does a wonderful job at achieving dramatic and long-lasting results for individuals who wish to improve the appearance of loose, sagging skin on the face and neck. A PDO thread lift in Indiana can provide similar aesthetic results for those with mild to moderate degrees of concern.

The procedure relies on temporary sutures placed beneath the skin through a cannula to lift, pull, and reposition areas of skin laxity, and minimize signs of aging. Due to the minute size of the cannula, a PDO thread lift typically does not require incisions, and the sutures dissolve within six to nine months. This means recovery time is shorter than a traditional face or neck lift, and there is little to no risk of visible scarring afterward.

Similar to non-invasive skin treatments like microneedling, PDO thread lifts can further rejuvenate the skin by stimulating the body’s natural healing response. Once the threads are placed, the body repairs minor skin and tissue damage by generating new collagen and elastin growth. In turn, this enhanced production results in a natural youthful glow.

Who Should Consider a PDO Thread Lift?

Since a PDO thread lift is a less-invasive alternative to facelift surgery, it is better suited for addressing mild to moderate signs of aging, including skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles. PDO thread lift patients in Indiana are often in their 30s and 40s, which is when skin elasticity remains sufficient, but signs of aging begin to form or worsen moderately. However, the treatment could still be an effective option for individuals 50 and older who have healthy skin and do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure. This treatment targets a wide variety of common facial concerns, including:

  • Prominent nasolabial lines
  • Marionette lines around the mouth
  • Neck and jawline sagging or loss of definition

It can also address the appearance of drooping cheeks and skin folds.
