This will help set up a viable treatment option to target your sagging skin appropriately. Treatment The consultation will comprise of a detailed examination before an all-encompassing treatment plan is offered. This treatment plan will include a detailed assessment of the face, it’s pre-existing structure, and the necessary adjustments required to offer a natural “V-shape” for enhanced results. Once the skin ages, this V-shape inverts or diminishes. By using the PDO Thread Lift procedure, a specialist will offer additional support to the nearby tissue to lift it up into place. This will recreate the natural shape to one’s face and eliminate signs of aging or loose skin. In general, the treatment includes the use of hypodermic needles with polydioxanone (PDO). These are sutures approved by Health Canada and can be used to treat aging skin. Once set up, the PDO Thread Lift procedure will begin the absorption phase (4-6 months). How does the treatment work? The specialist will meticulously situate these sutures underneath the skin. Once the sutures are in place, the skin will begin to react in a controlled manner. The process is called “selective inflammatory response” and will initiate a process of collagen production and restoration. On the day of the treatment, a specialist will go over the details again. After the information is relayed, the target area(s) will be assessed and numbed using a local anesthetic. Each area is marked before the threads are inserted under the skin. The thin needles are used to lift the sagging tissue (no skin is removed) before repositioning it. In the hands of a trained specialist, this procedure is completed skillfully and artfully for optimal results. The skin will not scar at any stage of this procedure. The PDO suture will stay in place to keep the skin as desired. The PDO Thread Lift procedure is completed once all target areas are lifted, examined, and processed by a trained eye. This ensures the results are ideal and suit the patient’s needs. Recovery For patients receiving the PDO Thread Lift procedure, a painkiller (Advil/Tylenol) is prescribed to manage pain. In most cases, the pain will subside quickly as the skin heals. If necessary, patients are welcome to stronger painkillers. These are prescribed on a case-to-case basis. The specialist will also recommend icing the target area(s). It’s also best to avoid strenuous activity.
