What Is A Thread Lift?

We have all been there, watching ourselves aging right before our eyes, but it’s not easy to wrap your head around the idea of getting a surgical face lift. Thread lifts give you all the benefits of bringing back the tight, youthful face and neck that you once had without all the hassle of surgery. At Anushka Spa, Salon & Cosmedical Centre, we wanted to find the least invasive way to bring back the skin of your youth. That is why we now offer PDO Thread Lifts.

The most visible signs of aging occur around our face and necks. Our facial structure is made up of fat that is supported by the elasticity of the skin and your bone structure. As we age, we being to lose the plump facial fat and bone density we once had. The loss of fat and bone density leads to weakening skin resulting in sagging around the eyes, cheeks, eyebrows, jowls and of course our necks. Fortunately, our clients at Anushka Spa, Salon & Cosmedical Centre can age more gracefully with PDO Thread Lifts.

Dr. Bonnie Marting at Anushka’s Cosmedical Centre offers a non-surgical facelift, called a PDO Thread Lift. Thread Lifts are a minimally invasive technique used to correct facial drooping by creating an instant lift to tighten loose skin around the face and neck line. Thread Lifts are an excellent way for our clients to delay extensive surgical procedures.

So, before you assume surgery is your only option, Dr. Marting D.N.P., A.N.R.P., is sharing everything you need to know about this safe and noninvasive procedure that changes the way we treat sagging, aging skin.

How Does The Thread Lift Procedure Work?

The PDO Thread Lift technique uses Novathreads, which are absorbable threads made of polydioxanone (PDO). Novathreads are 100 percent dissolvable and have been used in a multitude of surgical specialties for the last 50 years. These specialties range from cardiovascular surgery, thoracic surgery, gynecological surgery as well as plastic surgery.
Anushka’s Cosmedical Centre uses PDO Threads to tighten the skin by creating an inflammatory response, causing the production of new collagen. The inflammatory response thriggered by the threads can also cause fibrosis, which tightens the tissue. The threads come in different thickness and lengths. Dr. Bonnie Marting D.N.P., A.N.R.P., helps you choose right size threads depending on what type of improvement you would like to have. When the threads are placed properly, patients will see an instantaneous lift of the loose facial skin, and an overall improvement of the turgor and quality of the skin tissue.

Which Areas Of The Body Can Be Treated With PDO Threads?

Both body and facial skin can be treated with PDO threads. When PDO Threads are used on the face, they can enhance the lips by recreating the border of the lips. It can be used to lift the eyes, cheeks and loose jowl skin, tighten the neck and can even improve wrinkles around the eyes. These threads also can be used to accentuate the eyebrow arch. Dr. Bonnie can also insert threads around the nasolabial folds to naturally fill the depression.

Restoring the V-Shape To The Face

A beautiful and healthy face has a natural “V-shape”. Due to age and gravity the beautiful “V-shape” can be diminished or inverted. Properly placed PDO threads work to support the tissues and keep them in the “V-shape” or, where necessary, delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the “V-shape” where it has been lost.

How Is The PDO Thread Lift Procedure Performed?

Prior to beginning the PDO Thread Lift procedure, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the patient’s skin for 30 minutes. The procedure area is then cleansed with alcohol for anesthetic purposes. Dr. Marting then injects a small amount of lidocaine into the skin to numb the area where the PDO Thread will be inserted. The thread is then inserted just underneath the skin’s surface and is anchored into the tissue to lift and tighten the skin. Any excess thread is then trimmed off. The entire procedure takes approximately 45 minutes, depending on the number of threads used.

What Is The Recovery Like?

Recovery from this minimally invasive procedure is both short and simple. Patients may experience some swelling and bruising for a few days following the procedure. Patients may continue daily activities immediately after treatment but should avoid vigorous exercise for one week and facial massages for at least two weeks. Dr. Marting at Anushka Spa & Cosmedical Centre suggests her patients sleep on their backs the first four to five days following treatment.
