Some goals can feel more difficult than others. No matter how difficult the goal is, they all share one thing in common; the incredible sentiment when you accomplish one. It’s easy to feel like aesthetic goals are more difficult when you begin to experience some of the most common signs of aging, such as facial sagging, wrinkles, skin folds, or skin laxity in the nick area. At Skin Boutique in Detroit & Birmingham, we take pride in how easily we help you achieve your goals to overturn these burdens. In fact, it’s never been simpler to look more youthful and refreshed without surgery. We are thrilled to offer our Metro Detroit patients PDO Thread Lifts, a popular technique used in our Medical Spa that delivers amazing results in turning back the clock on aging signs. This page is dedicated to helping inform you about the process and benefits of PDO Thread Lifts and why this year you should set a goal to come to visit us for the life-changing treatment.
PDO Thread Lifts from Skin Boutique help trigger your skin’s natural healing response to enhance the look and feel of your facial skin. They are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture. The threads are especially popular for the face and neck, as they can be used virtually anywhere a lift is needed, including above the knee, in the upper arms, in the abdominal area, and in the thighs. PDO threads are composed of a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone (PDO). These special sutures are one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months and won’t leave you with any scar tissue, only spectacular results.
Many of our Detroit and Birmingham patients find amazing benefits of PDO Thread Lifts, such as:
The best candidates for Thread Lifts in Detroit or Birmingham are individuals who are experiencing early facial aging or who are showing visible signs of aging. This includes mild to moderate skin laxity in the mid-facial region and fine lines and wrinkles around the nose, mouth, and chin. Ideal clients are between the ages 30-65, with no prior surgeries to the treatment area. Every patient should also have realistic expectations of what the procedure can do for them.
If you are interested in getting PDO Thread Lifts in Detroit or Birmingham, the first thing to do is schedule your consultation with Skin Boutique. During your appointment, you’ll meet with our highly skilled team to determine if this procedure is best for you. We will ask you some questions regarding your medical history and evaluate your skin. Once our team has gathered the information we need, a treatment plan will be created, and our Client Coordinator will help your schedule your first Thread Lift Session. You will also be given some instructions to follow before your treatment, which include avoiding too much sun exposure for the weeks leading up to your appointment.
On the day of your PDO Thread Lift, we will begin by welcoming you with open arms. Our job is to make sure you’re comfortable and confident as we start the procedure. Our Thread Lifts are conducted in the office at Skin Boutique using a needle pre-loaded with a PDO thread. With precision and skill, our technician team inserts the tiny needle under the skin where it places the thread; this gently lifts the skin. Once the microneedle is removed, it leaves the thread under the skin. There are two significant techniques when using PDO Thread Lifts.
Nu-Mesh: Consists of creating a mesh under the skin (i.e., 2 sutures inserted vertically & 3 sutures horizontally). Nu-Mesh will serve as the foundation for our new collagen production. The NuMesh tightens the skin naturally from within, and the results appear naturally without any drastic change!
Nu-Lift: This technique utilizes more dramatic and immediate results. The sutures have “barbs” or “cogs”, which provide a grip underneath the skin. Sutures are inserted the same way, except they can be pulled in 1 or 2 directions, creating an instant skin repositioning. Just like the NuMesh, the skin will then build new collagen, which will secure the lift.
A beautiful and healthy face has a “V-shape.” With the aging of tissues and the action of gravity, this “V-shape” diminishes or inverts. The idea behind the Nu-Mesh and the Nu-Lift technique is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the “V-shape” or, where necessary, to delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the “V-shape” where it’s been lost.
Some swelling, bruising, and discomfort are expected after PDO Thread Lifts. The recovery period lasts about 5 -7 days. No exercise for 2 weeks with certain lifts, and no heavy lifting. As the threads are absorbed, the body’s collagen production is increased to smooth out wrinkles and folds. Optimal results appear about 4-6 weeks after the threading; at this time, many of our patients begin to appreciate the results of their treatment with lifted skin. Sutures are absorbed over the next 8 to 9 months without scarring. Over the course of 2 years, collagen will continue to increase to preserve your PDO Thread results.
