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.

Who Is A Good Candidate For PDO Thread Lift?
How Does The Thread Lift Procedure Work?
Which Areas Of The Body Can Be Treated With PDO Threads?
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?
The Benefits of PDO Thread Lifts
1. Address Different Concerns & Patient Needs
2. Safe & Gradually Absorbed By The Body
3. Keep Your Skin Looking Plump & Youthful
Studies suggest that the use of PDO Threads help to produce the production of new collagen in the skin which enhances the skin’s elasticity as well as improving the appearance of folds and wrinkles around the skin and neck.
PDO Threads also stimulate the elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin. Both of which are essential in achieving the youthful, rejuvenated quality of the skin.
4. Immediate Lifted Appearance Following The Procedure
Patients at Anushka Cosmedical Centre usually see a noticeable tightening and lifting effect immediately after the PDO Thread Lift procedure. Keep in mind, however, that the finalized results will be seen after two to three months as the new collagen stimulation begins.
It takes about 6 months for the PDO threads to begin fully dissolving but the results can last for approximately two years as long as the collagen of your skin holds the lift.
