Dr. E’s Women’s Health Update:  Why You Should Consider PDO Instead of a Facelift  
Look better, feel better – without going under the knife. 

Hello friends, 

When you looked in the mirror this morning, were you surprised – just a bit – by the appearance of your skin? We all must face (pun intended) the fact that, as we age our skin loses its elasticity, leading to wrinkles and sagging. 

While there is nothing wrong with being comfortable in our own skin, there is also something to be said for giving Mother Nature a little help. Some women choose the surgery route, with a facelift or tuck. But there is a new procedure that presents a very nice alternative to going under the knife. 

PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are a type of thread life procedure that has gained popularity in recent years as a minimally invasive alternative to traditional facelift surgery. The procedure involves inserting dissolvable threads into the skin to provide a lifting and tightening effect, helping to reduce the signs of aging and improve overall skin appearance. PDO threads can be used in various areas of the face, including the cheeks, jowls, neck, and eyebrows, to create a more youthful and rejuvenated look.

Some of the benefits of PDO threads for women in terms of achieving a younger appearance include:

Improved skin tightness:
PDO threads can help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. This can lead to improved skin tightness and a reduction in the appearance of sagging skin.
Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines:
By lifting and tightening the skin, PDO threads can help diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, particularly in areas such as the forehead, cheeks, and jawline.
Enhanced facial contours:
PDO threads can provide a subtle lifting effect, helping to redefine facial contours and improve overall facial symmetry. This can contribute to a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Stimulated natural healing response:
The insertion of PDO threads prompts the body's natural healing response, leading to increased blood flow and the production of new collagen, which can further improve skin texture and tone.

It is important to note that while PDO thread facelifts can offer noticeable improvement in skin appearance, results may vary depending on individual skin conditions, age, and overall health. Additionally, the longevity of the results can vary from person to person. A consultation with one of our healthcare professionals here at AgeRejuvenation can open your eyes to the possibilities for you.
