PDO Thread Lift in Tampa

How A Thread Lift Works

Thread lifts are a safe, FDA Approved, non-surgical lift procedure that involves inserting naturally dissolving sutures or “threads” into the face and other areas of the body to tighten sagging skin. Performed in the office under local anesthetic: threads are a fast, relatively painless procedure with no downtime.

Not only is this procedure nonsurgical, it is also an instant facelift! The injected sutures produce an inflammatory response that is pinpointed to create new collagen. As a result, the controlled injury will encourage the body’s own natural healing process which allows for longer lasting results. By generating more of your own collagen, you are enabling your skin to remain lifted long after the threads have dissolved. Therefore, you can experience longer, more cutting-edge results with the the variety brands and sizes we offer.

The thread lift will not only perk your features, it will also fill facial hollows and deep-set areas. Inserted by a provider using a painless needle, threads are strategically placed into the area that needs to be lifted, such as the jaw line or brow. Once the threads are situated, new collagen begins to develop, resulting in the skin remaining tighter and more youthful looking for months to come. See our thread lifts in office here.

The Procedure

The thread lift procedure varies depending on the area and specific provider.

Generally, after anesthetic has been applied, a thin needle or cannula will be used to insert the threads underneath your skin. After all of the threads being used have been inserted, the method of insertion will be removed- there might be a slight sensation of pressure or tension of the skin. After a few minutes, your procedure will be complete and you will be free to return home.

Smooth · Twist · Bard Threads

Smooth threads are ideal for facial collagen stimulation and production, which over the long term will tighten and lift frown lines, crow’s feet, cheeks and lines and folds around the nose and mouth.

Twist threads are a twisted pair of threads that work to accelerate stimulation of collagen and are ideal for lifting the lips and areas around the mouth.

Barb threads are textured with small barbs that help grab ahold of skin and create lift. A combination of barbed and smooth threads can be used together for firm and lifted results.
