PDO Thread Lift in Cape May Court House & South Jersey

Sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines can be concerns for many as they age and as their skin becomes thinner and less elastic. Seeking effective treatments that offer rejuvenation without surgical intervention can become a priority for those wanting to address these issues. PDO thread lifts can be one non-surgical option for enhancing the texture and appearance of face and neck tissues.

Serving Cape May Court House, NJ, and the surrounding areas, we are always looking for the least invasive and most effective ways to meet your aesthetic goals. At South Jersey Aesthetics, we leverage advanced techniques and prioritize client education and finding treatments that fit each person’s unique situation. When you contact us for a consultation, we can determine whether a PDO thread lift might be a good fit for you. 

What Is a PDO Thread Lift? 

A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical cosmetic technique designed to lift and tighten sagging skin tissues. Using biodegradable sutures made from polydioxanone (PDO), this treatment offers a less invasive way to rejuvenate the facial structure. The threads, once introduced beneath the skin, create a supportive meshwork, giving an immediate lifting effect with additional long-term benefits.

How Do PDO Threads Work?

When the PDO threads are inserted into the skin layers, they act as a framework that supports the lifting and tightening of the skin. As these threads gradually dissolve over several months, they stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This leads to increased collagen and elastin production, essential proteins for maintaining skin’s elasticity and firmness. As a result, not only do patients experience an immediate lift, but the skin also continues to improve in texture and tone in the following months. 

What Type of Thread Lifts Do We Offer?

We specialize in offering NovaThreads for our thread lift treatments. NovaThreads are FDA-approved and made from a biodegradable material that has a long track record in the medical community. What sets them apart is their adaptability; they come in various lengths and types, allowing for a customized treatment plan. Whether you’re looking for a subtle lift or more pronounced rejuvenation, NovaThreads can provide you with versatile options to meet your aesthetic goals.

What Can Nova Thread Lifts Treat?

  • Facial Sagging: Using PDO threads, sagging facial skin can be effectively lifted and repositioned. This technique provides a rejuvenated appearance without surgical intervention.
  • Neck Laxity: Addressing neck laxity becomes more achievable with PDO threading. By strategically placing these threads, the neck area can be tightened and neck bands can be smoothed out.
  • Drooping Brows: For those struggling with drooping brows, a PDO brow lift offers a promising solution. The insertion of these threads can elevate the brow area, enhancing the overall facial symmetry and promoting a bright, lifted appearance.
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: A thread face lift doesn’t just lift — it also promotes collagen production, a protein vital for skin elasticity. As collagen increases, fine lines and wrinkles can noticeably reduce.
  • Tired Eyes: Revitalizing the area under the eyes can make a difference. Using PDO threads under the eyes, we can target the sagging skin, reducing the appearance of fatigue.
  • Sagging Jowls: Enhancing the definition of the jawline is possible with jawline PDO threads. By introducing these threads, jowls can be lifted, offering a more defined and sculpted look.
  • Nasolabial Folds and Marionette Lines: Deep-set lines around the mouth, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines, can be minimized with a thread face lift. By stimulating the skin from within, these threads can soften the prominence of such lines.
  • Skin Texture: A PDO thread lift not only tackles sagging but also improves skin texture. As the threads dissolve, they can help the skin rejuvenate itself leading to skin that has a smoother and more elastic texture.

What Are the Benefits of a PDO Thread Lift? 

Biodegradable Composition

Used for various medical applications, especially in cardiothoracic procedures, polydioxanone fully decomposes through hydrolysis within a span of four to six months, leaving no scar tissue behind. This foreign material prompts collagen production, maintaining the skin’s improved structure for an additional 12 to 15 months.

Needle-Based, No Surgical Cuts

NovaThreads come as needles pre-filled with a PDO thread. The technique involves introducing the entire needle into the sub-dermal tissue, aligning it with the skin’s surface, and then carefully withdrawing it, leaving the PDO thread in place beneath the skin.

Immediate Lifting Effect

Upon receiving a PDO thread lift, patients often notice an immediate lifting and tightening of the skin. This prompt result is due to the supportive meshwork the threads create beneath the skin, pulling it subtly upward.

Long-Term Collagen Stimulation

The benefits of PDO threads extend beyond just immediate results. Because the body responds to the sutures by sending more fibroblasts to the area, the rejuvenation effects can last for many months.

A Closer Look at Our PDO Thread Lift Treatment Process

Before a PDO thread lift, a consultation helps us customize the treatment plan. Then, on the day of treatment, the area is cleaned, and a local anesthetic is applied for comfort. Using a fine needle, the NovaThreads are carefully introduced beneath the skin, leaving the thread in place as the needle is extracted. Slight adjustments ensure optimal positioning of the threads.

Post-treatment, mild swelling or redness might be present, but this generally subsides quickly. Patients often feel a gentle pulling sensation during insertion and adjustment, but the procedure is designed to be as painless and comfortable as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions About PDO Threads

How Long Do PDO Threads Last?

The effects of a PDO thread lift can be noticeable for up to a year or more, depending on individual factors such as skin type, age, and the specific area treated. Even after they are absorbed, the collagen stimulation they provide can extend the visible benefits beyond this period.

Who Is the Right Candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?

Those seeking a non-surgical solution to address sagging skin, wrinkles, or reduced skin elasticity might find PDO threading to be an ideal choice. It’s best suited for individuals in good health, without severe skin laxity, and those who have realistic expectations from the treatment. Consulting with us can help determine individual suitability.
