Who is a Good Candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?

Who is a Good Candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?Signs of aging are typically most visible on our faces and necks. The support structure of the face comprises fat and is supported by skin elasticity and the bone structure of the face. 

The loss of fat and bone density causes the support structure to weaken and leads the skin to sag around the eyebrows, eyes, cheeks, neck, and jowls. However, an aging face does not always mean that a person requires surgery to regain its firmness and youthful appearance. 

Patients can consider a non-surgical med spa facelift, known as a PDO Thread Lift. This minimally invasive technique addresses facial sagging by immediately lifting and tightening loose skin in the neck and face area. It is an effective way for patients to delay surgical procedures, such as a traditional facelift.  

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides PDO thread lift to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.


Who is an Ideal Candidate for PDO Thread Lift?

The PDO Thread Lift procedure can be beneficial to people seeking to avoid surgical procedures and wishing to delay the onset of facial aging. In general, the procedure is appropriate for anyone who wants to enhance the tautness and texture of any loose skin, including the skin in the neck area.

It is particularly effective for people with mild to moderate jowling of the lower third portion of the face and those who see to improve fine lines, especially on both sides of the cheeks. 

In general, men and women in their 30’s and above who have mild to moderate sagginess, wrinkles, and lines in the forehead, face, and/or neck are typically good candidates. Certain surgeons may also undertake the treatment as a non-surgical eyelift or other parts of the body. 

The patient must be in good general health as well as have reasonable expectations of the treatment. This procedure is most suitable for people who want to enhance their appearance in a non-surgical manner. 


Which Body Areas can be Treated with PDO Thread Lift?

PDO threads can be used to treat both facial and body skin. Upon being used on the face, they can improve the lips by recreating the border of the lips. This med spa procedure can effectively lift the cheeks, eyes, and sagging jowl skin, tighten the neck, and can even improve the lines around the eyes. 

In addition, these threads can be used to enhance the eyebrow arch. The treatment provider can also place the threads around the nasolabial folds to address the depression in a natural-looking manner.


Restoring the V-Shape to the Face

A healthy and appealing face has a “V-shape.” But aging can diminish or invert the facial shape. The PDO threads help support the tissues enabling them to stay in the “V-shape” or, where required, subtly lift the tissues and reposition the skin to develop the “V-shape” where it has been lost.


How is the PDO Thread Lift Procedure Undertaken?

In this procedure, the provider initially injects a tiny amount of lidocaine into the skin to numb the site where the thread is inserted. Subsequently, the thread is inserted right beneath the surface of the skin and is anchored into the tissue to lift and tighten the skin. 

Then the provider will trim off any excess thread. The time taken to complete the entire procedure is around 45 minutes, depending on the number of threads inserted. Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for PDO thread lift.
