From child-bearing to the simple passage of time, there are plenty of ways that life can have an impact on your figure. If these changes are affecting your confidence and satisfaction with your appearance, it may be worthwhile to consider body contouring and sculpting treatments that can restore your figure and help you get your groove back.
A PDO thread lift for the body is a safe, minimally invasive procedure that offers visible results without the risks of surgery. Thread lifts have long been used as a rejuvenation method, but recent cosmetic technology advancements have significantly increased their effectiveness.
How does a PDO thread lift for the body work?
PDO stands for polydioxanone, which is a synthetic biodegradable material that is used in a range of medical and cosmetic applications. A PDO thread lift works by utilizing thin threads, also known as sutures, to lift and tighten facial and body skin that has loosened or become saggy.
The PDO threads are introduced into the body via a thin needle. Once inserted, the threads are gently pulled and tightened, creating an instantly lifted appearance and forming a supportive structure that keeps the skin in its new position. The threads are non-allergenic and non-reactive, and the body absorbs them about six months after the procedure. The results last far longer than this, however, because the threads encourage collagen production and the contraction of fat cells.
Some of the benefits that a PDO thread lift can offer include:
Long-term improvements to skin tautness
A slimmer figure
Skin cell rejuvenation
Increased collagen production
Patients often seek a thread lift over a surgical procedure for several reasons. For one, a thread lift has little to no downtime and doesn’t leave incisions or scarring. It also produces results that are much more natural-looking than a surgical body lift, which can sometimes cause certain areas of the body to look stretched.
Who is a good candidate for a PDO thread lift for the body?
A PDO thread lift for the body may be a good option if you:
Are 30 to 65 years of age
Wish to tighten and firm your belly, thighs, arms, breasts, or buttocks
Have not previously undergone a body lift procedure
Have skin that is in good condition and neither too thin nor too heavy
A PDO thread lift produces the best results when combined with a commitment to a healthy lifestyle that includes good eating habits and regular exercise.
