REVOLUTIONIZING FACIAL REJUVENATION: THE PDO APPROACH TO AGING AND SAGGING SKIN

Aging is a natural process that, over time, results in the development of wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of facial volume. While traditional solutions to address these concerns have ranged from topicals to invasive surgical facelifts, the quest for less invasive yet effective solutions has never waned. Enter PDO thread lifting—a revolutionary, non-surgical technique that offers a unique and innovative approach to combating sagging skin and restoring a more youthful appearance. This method not only provides immediate lifting of the skin but also promotes collagen production, addressing the very root causes of facial aging.

UNDERSTANDING PDO THREAD LIFTING WITHOUT SURGERY

NON-SURGICAL PDO THREAD LIFT BY DR. SCHWARZBURG IN NYC

PDO THREAD LIFT TARGET AREAS

Polydioxanone threads, or PDO threads, are versatile in their applications, and suitable for a wide range of facial, neck, and even some body regions. Their primary function is to reposition loose tissue, rejuvenate the treated areas, and stimulate collagen production to achieve a lasting tightening and lifting effect:

  • Mid and Lower Face Enhancement: PDO threads are particularly effective for the mid and lower face. They address the common issues of sagging cheeks and nasolabial folds, offering a firmer and more youthful appearance.
  • Reviving the Jawline: Aging often leads to jowls, which are saggy skin areas that droop past the jawline, extending towards the mouth. With PDO threads, these jowls are lifted, restoring a previously defined and contoured face shape. The procedure ensures an immediate, sculpted look with effects that can endure for 1-2 years, especially when complemented with routine maintenance visits.
  • PDO Fox Eyebrow Lift: A specialized technique in which PDO threads are strategically positioned along the forehead. This allows for a gentle elevation of the eyebrows, serving as an alternative to a surgical eyebrow lift or even a mini-blepharoplasty. 
  • Thread-based Rhinoplasties: While PDO threads can be used for nose lifts, the results might sometimes be subtle. For those desiring a more noticeable change in the nose’s structure without resorting to traditional surgery, Dr. Schwarzburg often advocates for liquid rhinoplasty as an efficient alternative.
  • PDO Neck Lift: One of the standout applications of PDO threads is in addressing the ‘turkey neck’ or the ‘wattle neck’ – signs of aging in the neck region. By using PDO threads, neck laxity is reduced, resulting in a rejuvenated neck contour that exudes youthfulness and elegance.

    HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR PDO THREAD LIFT AT SKINLY AESTHETICS

    Achieving the best results from a PDO thread lift requires some simple yet crucial preparatory steps:

    • Consultation: Engage in a personalized consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg to understand the procedure, clarify doubts, and outline aesthetic objectives.
    • Medication: Halt the use of blood thinners like Aspirin and Ibuprofen at least one week prior.
    • Lifestyle: Abstain from alcohol consumption for at least 48 hours before to minimize bleeding risks.
    • Scheduling: Ideally, avoid social engagements for up to a week post-procedure to allow for potential recovery from temporary effects like bruising or swelling.
    • Cycle Considerations: It’s recommended to schedule the procedure outside of menstrual periods to reduce the chance of bruising.

    TIMEFRAME OF THE PDO THREAD LIFT

    One of PDO threads’ defining attributes is its efficient procedure duration. Generally, patients are in and out within 30 minutes to an hour. Moreover, the minimal downtime means you can quickly return to most of your daily tasks, all while enjoying immediate visual enhancements.

    THE PDO THREAD LIFTING PROCEDURE WITH DR. SCHWARZBURG

    At Dr. Schwarzburg’s state-of-the-art suite, you’ll experience premium care:

    • Preparation: The treatment area undergoes thorough cleansing and mapping for optimal thread placement.
    • Comfort First: Local anesthesia is applied, ensuring the process is as comfortable as possible.
    • Precision Insertions: Dr. Schwarzburg’s technique involves meticulously placing threads, often using 10-18 threads for ideal results.
    • Post-Care: Post-procedure guidance includes providing ice packs to mitigate swelling and antiseptic solutions for pristine wound care.

    PDO THREADS: A SAFE CHOICE

    The FDA has given its stamp of approval to polydioxanone threads, lauding their safety in treating facial and neck laxity. As biodegradable materials, PDO threads harmoniously integrate without causing allergic reactions.

    EXPERIENCING PAIN WITH PDO THREADS?

    With Dr. Schwarzburg at the helm, discomfort is minimized. While there’s a brief sensation during the anesthesia application, the thread insertion is predominantly pain-free. For those particularly sensitive, Pro-Nox – a soothing mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide – is available.

    ARE YOU SUITED FOR A PDO THREAD LIFT?

    Dr. Schwarzburg identifies ideal candidates through:

    • Skin Conditions: Those with skin sag due to weight fluctuations, aging, or even genetics might benefit immensely.
    • Age Factors: Even individuals in their late twenties can be candidates, especially if they exhibit early signs of skin laxity.
    • Collagen Boost: The procedure is renowned for invigorating collagen production, returning skin to its former tautness.

    CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR PDO THREAD LIFTS

    While PDO threads are typically well-received, some conditions might render them unsuitable:

    • Material Sensitivity: A rare few might be sensitive to polydioxanone.
    • Skin Traits: A tendency to develop keloids could be a concern.
    • Health Considerations: Issues like blood disorders or weakened immunity can be deterrents.
    • Expectation Management: For those with considerable skin sag or seeking surgical results, alternatives might be more appropriate.

    WHAT ARE THE RISKS AND SIDE EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH PDO THREADS?

    While PDO thread lifts offer a less invasive option than surgical facelifts, it’s essential to understand the potential risks and side effects. These typically dissipate over time, leaving you with the desired, rejuvenated appearance. Dr. Schwarzburg highlights:

    • Facial Swelling: An inflammatory response to PDO threads can cause swelling, which generally fades within a week.
    • Bruising: Minor bleeding due to the threads might cause bruising, lasting between 2-8 days.
    • Skin Dimpling: As the skin adjusts to the threads, especially near the hairline, puckering might occur but usually resolves in 1-2 weeks.
    • Thread Extrusion: Occasionally, a thread might become visible or move. A brief 10-minute procedure can address this.
    • Infections: Extremely rare and often a result of not adhering to post-procedure guidelines. Antibiotics typically treat it swiftly.

    WHAT IS PDO THREAD LIFT AFTERCARE?

    Post-procedure care is straightforward, ensuring a smooth recovery:

    • Take 600mg painkillers (Ibuprofen or Aleve) three times daily to manage swelling and pain.
    • Cold therapy during the initial 24 hours helps reduce inflammation.
    • Apply betadine on thread insertion points to mitigate infection risks.
    • Avoid rigorous exercise for up to a week to ensure threads stay in place.
    • Sleep on your back for the initial 48 hours to prevent thread migration.

    WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME FOLLOWING PDO FACELIFT TREATMENT?

    PDO thread lifts stand out for their brief recovery periods. Although you can resume most activities swiftly, it’s advised to limit intense physical exertion and extreme facial expressions for about two weeks post-procedure.

    WHEN WILL I SEE MY THREAD LIFT RESULTS?

    Your rejuvenated appearance emerges almost immediately post-procedure. However, initial skin dimpling might mask the final outcome. Typically, this settles within a couple of weeks, revealing the enhanced contours of your face.

    HOW DO PDO THREADS WORK?

    PDO threads provide a dual-action effect. Firstly, they mechanically lift sagging skin. Once introduced, the threads latch onto the skin’s deeper layers, specifically the SMAS layer, offering immediate elevation. Secondly, as the body breaks down the polydioxanone, it stimulates collagen production, ensuring sustained benefits even after thread dissolution.

    WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PDO THREADS?

    Various thread types cater to distinct aesthetic objectives:

    • Smooth PDO Threads (Mono Threads): These finer threads enhance skin texture, addressing concerns like acne scars, without lifting.
    • Barbed PDO Threads: Heavier, these threads contain hooks for efficient skin repositioning and are placed deeper to support weightier skin areas.
    • Screw Threads (Twisted Threads): Comprising two intertwined threads, they offer volume enhancement in areas like under the eyes.

    CAN PDO THREADS LIFT THE NECK?

    Neck rejuvenation is multifaceted, with factors like fat distribution, muscle activity, and skin laxity playing roles. While PDO threads can address skin sagging, other issues like platysmal banding or excessive fat might require treatments such as liposuction, neck Botox, or CoolSculpting.

    HOW LONG DO PDO THREAD RESULTS LAST?

    PDO thread lift outcomes are semi-permanent. The immediate benefits are visible post-procedure and can persist for 6-12 months. The longevity varies based on factors like age, treatment area, and thread type. For instance, mature skin or areas requiring more support might need frequent touch-ups.

    HOW MANY PDO LIFTING SESSIONS ARE NECESSARY?

    While many patients find satisfaction after just one PDO treatment, Dr. Schwarzburg recommends a maintenance session 6 months post-initial treatment. For those with considerable skin laxity, biannual sessions may be essential during the initial 1-2 years. Afterward, upkeep sessions can be spaced every 1-2 years or as required.

    WHO IS QUALIFIED TO PERFORM PDO THREAD LIFTING?

    Seek a board-certified doctor with extensive experience, like Dr. Schwarzburg in NYC. PDO threads, when misplaced, can cause irreversible damage. Unfortunately, few in the US, including New York, are adept at successful PDO thread lifts. Dr. Schwarzburg is among the elite capable of safely performing these procedures.

    WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PDO THREADS AND PLLA OR PCL THREADS?

    While PDO threads are biodegradable over several months, PLLA or PCL threads offer more durability, often lasting up to 8 months.

    CAN I COMBINE PDO THREADS WITH OTHER COSMETIC TREATMENTS?

    Yes. PDO thread lifts are often complemented with treatments like Botox or dermal fillers for comprehensive rejuvenation. Additionally, treatments like Secret RF microneedling and Fraxel laser resurfacing can enhance skin quality.

    PDO THREAD LIFT COST IN NEW YORK

    The cost ranges from $1000-$5000 per session, influenced by the doctor’s expertise, thread type, number of threads, and treatment area. Dr. Schwarzburg emphasizes the importance of valuing expertise over cost for such intricate procedures.
