A PDO Thread lift is a revolutionary treatment for sagging and mature skin.

Considered one of the most effective nonsurgical alternatives to facelift surgery for the rejuvenation of sagging, droopy and aging skin, the PDO thread lift produces more natural-looking results.

It is the nonsurgical procedure of choice for those who want to immediately restore their face’s natural contour and those who want to regain their skin’s health and vitality without looking like they had any ‘work’ done.

Just like any aesthetic treatment, surgical or otherwise, know that getting a PDO Thread lift entails responsibility on your part. Advance research about the procedure and choosing the right doctor will play a huge part on the result (whether positive or negative) of your thread lift treatment.

To help with your research about an effective sagging skin treatment, we listed down 5 things that you need to know before going for a PDO Thread lift.

1. A PDO Thread lift is a minimally invasive, non surgical facelift treatment and skin tightening procedure

Typically administered for at least an hour, a PDO Thread lift delivers the effects of a facelift and a brow lift without surgery and in-patient hospitalization. It involves the introduction of medical-grade, absorbable PDO threads within specific areas of the skin to stimulate collagen formation, producing subtle and natural-looking skin tightening and rejuvenation. It is especially effective for lifting sagging cheeks, jowls and neck reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines while stimulating new collagen production.

2.  A PDO Thread lift requires the expertise of a trained skin specialist.

While it is a nonsurgical procedure and only requires the administration of a local anesthetic, a PDO Thread lift has to be performed by a trained and certified skin specialist. As a good skin tightening treatment such as PDO thread lift can end up with disappointing results in the wrong hands. Therefore, you need a licensed doctor backed by years of training in aesthetic medicine to ensure that risks and side effects are kept to a minimum.

At Cutis Medical Laser Clinics Singapore, one of the few laser clinics that offer thread lift Singapore, PDO Thread lifts are performed by Dr. Sylvia Ramirez, a Harvard-trained and US Board-certified doctor.  Additionally, she received additional training on thread lift protocols at a reputable plastic surgery center  that specializes in facelift without surgery in South Korea, Spain and the UK.

To ensure client safety and the success of the procedure, the aesthetic clinic Singapore uses CE marked and KFDA cleared absorbable PDO threads.  “We are very excited to add the CE marked and KFDA cleared absorbable PDO threads to our toolbox to offer our patients an even more complete range of treatments to help them look their best and love themselves,” says Dr. Sylvia.

3. Minimal side effects are expected after a PDO Thread lift.

As with any medical procedure, minimal side effects are expected after a thread lift. Most patients report having mild pain, swelling, bruising, and numbness that usually subside in a few days.  Furthermore, a PDO Thread lift has minimal to zero downtime. You are expected to recover fully within a week’s time but your skin specialist will normally recommend that you refrain from engaging in any strenuous physical activity for at least two weeks.

4. A gentle and natural lifting effect will be experienced immediately after your PDO Thread lift.

What clients really like about the PDO Thread Lift is that you don’t have to wait long to see any visible results. In fact, a noticeable face lifting effect can be observed right after the procedure. The most significant effects of the treatment, however, usually appear days or a few weeks post-procedure, when more and more collagen bundles form around each PDO thread inserted into the skin. You can enjoy a youthful, fresher, and rejuvenated appearance for up to two years following your thread lift.

5. PDO Thread lifts are cost-effective.

Contrary to what most people think, PDO thread lifts are inexpensive and cost no more than what you would normally pay for a good quality handbag or durable branded footwear. Considering its positive impact on your appearance and your overall self-confidence, a thread lift is cost-effective and definitely more affordable than a surgical facelift, brow lift, eye lift or neck tightening treatments.
