Is a non-surgical facelift possible?

The first facelift was performed in Germany in 1916, but the surgery itself has come a long way since then. However, it is still surgery. Is there an alternative available to those of us who don’t want to price, discomfort, and lengthy recovery time of surgery? This may sound too good to be true, but you really can lift sagging skin and reintroduce facial structure with a non-surgical facelift. Introducing: the PDO threadlift!


Why your ageing skin ‘falls’ and sags

Our skin contains a protein known as collagen, which is essential for skin laxity, volume, and firmness. It works as a connective tissue to keep our skin resilient and bouncy, but in our 20s we stop producing it. By our 30s onwards, we’re beginning to lose the collagen still present in our skin at around 1% per year! This leads to notable volume loss, sagging skin, and facial folds that soften your bone structure and prematurely age you. Cheekbones and jawlines that were once angular and contoured are lost underneath gravity’s pull on your thinning skin.


In some cases, and for targeted volume loss, dermal fillers are recommended to restore lost volume. This may be the choice for those of us who are noting our cheekbones have become less prominent or lips a little thinner, but what if we require all-over facial rejuvenation? There’s no read to contact a surgeon, book weeks off work, or ready the painkillers when you opt for a non-surgical facelift such as the PDO threadlift.


What is the PDO threadlift?

The PDO threadlift is an advanced yet minimally invasive treatment that is only performed under local anaesthetic and within just an hour! Biodegradable threads are placed within the soft tissue of your skin to lift loose skin and reduce the appearance of facial folds. Because the threads are biodegradable, there is no need for a second appointment to remove stitches, sutures, or any other shrapnel associated with surgery. Instead, they are gently dissolved over the period of around 9 months. What is truly beneficial about the PDO threadlift, though, is that it stimulates the natural production of collagen within your skin. This ensures that your results continue to better themselves over the coming months following treatment, and even after your threads have completely dissolved. You’ll notice an instant difference following your treatment, but your optimum results will be visible after the first 1-2 months post-treatment because of your collagen production.


This treatment is particularly effective for:

– Lifting the jowls and nose-to-mouth lines

– Revealing jawline structure

– Reintroducing contour to the cheeks and cheekbones

– Lifting the mouth corners

– Stimulating the fresh production of collagen within the skin


Why the non-surgical facelift is superior to surgery

There are many reasons why non-surgical methods are far preferable to invasive surgeries. Firstly, the non-surgical facelift involves no incisions, no cutting, and no general anaesthetic. This is what a lot of clients find most attractive about the non-surgical treatment, because it comes with far less discomfort, recovery time, and risks. Secondly, a surgical facelift is a little too permanent for many clients. It’s not always possible to avoid the wind-tunnel appearance of skin that is too tight and ageing into your results doesn’t go too smoothly sometimes. With a PDO threadlift, your natural skin processes are stimulated to rejuvenate it from the inside-out, while your threads gradually dissolve in your skin over the upcoming months. This ensures your results are natural-looking, not tell-tale, yet still transformative. You’re not altered permanently and will therefore continue to age gracefully into your results rather than committing to the cost and permanence of surgery.
