What are non-surgical facelifts? Do you notice your facial skin appearing dry and lacking its youthful radiance? If you desire a revitalized look, but are hesitant to undergo invasive surgery, there is an ideal solution for you – a facelift.
What are non-surgical facelifts?
A non-surgical facelift involves the placement of special threads known as PDO threads or magic threads that contain tiny spicules. These threads offer instant stretching and firming effects, resulting in a revitalized appearance. They are composed of fully biocompatible, absorbable material, similar to that of absorbable sutures.
How long does the result of a facelift last?
Depending on the patient’s skin type, the effects of the treatment typically last for around one year as the threads are gradually absorbed by the body.
What they didn’t tell you about facelift without surgery
1. It is a natural alternative to facelift:
Many individuals who express interest in a facelift often fear that their appearance will be drastically altered and possibly unappealing due to excessive skin stretching. However, such concerns are unfounded when it comes to non-surgical facelifts. This is because there is no cutting or stretching of the skin involved in the procedure. Rather, the threads lift and tighten the skin, resulting in a more youthful and improved version of yourself.
2. Does not require skin removal
Although removing excess droopy skin can be advantageous, it is not always the best solution for individuals seeking a facelift. This is especially true for younger to moderately mature patients who require only a low to medium lift. In such cases, removing skin can result in an unnatural appearance. Furthermore, undergoing invasive general surgery at an early stage may not be necessary or beneficial.
In contrast, incorporating PDO threads into your skincare regimen can help maintain firm, youthful skin with the added benefit of an immediate lifting effect. By promoting collagen production, the threads can gradually enhance your appearance, with visible improvements occurring around 8 days after the procedure.
3. They are different from collagen threads
Our dental clinic offers a variety of non-surgical facelift treatments, including collagen and PDO thread treatments. Clients frequently inquire about the differences between the two.
Collagen threads are primarily used to enhance the appearance of the skin. The thread material stimulates fibroblast cells, leading to increased collagen production. This results in smoother, softer, and more rejuvenated skin.
Tensing threads, on the other hand, are designed to lift and reposition tissue in various areas, such as the middle third of the face, double chin, jawline, nose, and eyebrows. In addition to providing a lifting effect, these threads also stimulate collagen production, serving a dual purpose.
We take pride in offering our clients a range of effective and safe non-surgical facelift options to help them achieve their desired appearance without the need for invasive surgery. Our team of experienced professionals can guide you in choosing the best treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and goals.
4. It is ideal for people who require a low to medium grade facelift.
As previously mentioned, individuals seeking to maintain a youthful appearance over time are excellent candidates for non-surgical facelift treatments. These treatments can provide subtle touch-ups that appear natural and discreet, leaving others wondering how you maintain such a youthful appearance.
Non-surgical facelift treatments have gained popularity among celebrities due to their numerous benefits and ease of application. However, in cases where a patient requires a significant facelift due to excess skin drooping, a surgical facelift may be more suitable. This is because the excess skin cannot be removed with non-surgical methods alone.
It is important to note that non-surgical facelift treatments should be performed by experienced and licensed professionals to ensure safe and effective results. At our clinic, we prioritize the safety and satisfaction of our clients by providing top-quality services and personalized treatment plans.
5. It is an ideal treatment to complement other procedures
Especially to obtain a complete orofacial harmonization.
The combination of PDO thread lifts or magic threads with other treatments such as hyaluronic acid, botulinum toxin, and smile design can produce a complete transformation of the face. Hyaluronic acid is used to fill in marionette lines, hydrate the lips, and smooth out deep wrinkles. Botulinum toxin is effective in preventing the formation of wrinkles and minimizing existing ones. Smile design can restore the shape and color of teeth, adding to the overall youthful appearance of the face.
At Clínica Viena, we strive to offer a comprehensive range of treatments that address all aspects of facial rejuvenation. Our goal is to help our patients look as young on the outside as they feel on the inside. By combining different treatments, we can achieve a complete 360-degree change in the appearance of the face, resulting in a more refreshed, youthful, and natural look.
6. It should always be done by qualified professionals.
One of the most critical points that I always stress is the proper application of tensing threads. Unfortunately, in some environments, even cosmetologists who lack knowledge of anatomy, patient management, and complications may apply these threads. To ensure the success of the treatment, all of these factors must be taken into account. However, to cut costs, some may use inputs that have not been approved by INVIMA. This is extremely concerning because the area where these inputs are applied is very delicate, and improper usage could result in adverse effects.
At our clinic, we take the utmost care in performing our treatments, and that’s why we entrust our maxillofacial surgeon to carry out this type of procedure. Our surgeon is a specialist not only in the field of facial aesthetics and orofacial harmonization, but also in treating more complicated cases that may require extensive surgery.
