What Are Nonsurgical FaceLIFTS and Necklifts?
If you've started to notice signs of aging such as drooping facial skin or a sagging neck, but you aren't ready for a surgical facelift or necklift, there are alternative options. At Dental Beauty Wellness Center, we offer nonsurgical necklift and facelift options to help lift your skin for a natural and youthful look. This treatment, utilizing PDO threads, is a great way to treat mild to moderate skin laxity in the face, cheeks, nasolabial folds, neck, and more. Dr. Jon Hendrickson, Dr. Samantha Rahrig, and our team of aesthetic technicians provide this treatment for all of our Columbus, Greenwood, and Martinsville, IN at our Trafalgar, IN office.
How Do Nonsurgical Facelifts and Necklifts Work?
Nonsurgical facelift and necklifts are performed inside our Trafalgar, IN office in one of our comfortable procedure rooms using medical-grade PDO threads. Generally, these treatments last around one hour. Before your treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic cream to help you stay comfortable. From there, we'll mark the areas on your face and/or neck that need to be treated. These will be the places where the threads will enter and exit the skin. We will use a very small needle to insert the threads into the skin. Once we finish inserting the threads, we will gently pull on the threads, which will lift the skin for a lifted appearance. After your treatment, you will likely experience some redness, swelling, and tenderness, but this will dissipate over the next week or two. You might notice results right away, but it generally takes between 2 – 3 months for the full effects to appear.
Nonsurgical Facelift and Necklift FAQ
Does a PDO thread lift hurt?
Most patients don’t experience any pain or discomfort. Prior to your procedure, Dr. Rahrig or Dr. Hendrickson will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to keep you comfortable.
How long does a thread lift procedure take?
Most of our nonsurgical facelifts and necklifts using PDO threads will take about an hour to complete.
Are PDO thread lifts safe?
One of the benefits of a thread lift is that they generally have a much lower risk of complications than facelift and necklift surgeries. These include less risk for scarring, bleeding, or severe bruising after the procedure.
When do you see results from a nonsurgical facelift or necklift using PDO threads?
Many patients will notice almost immediate results, but over the next 2 – 3 months after the procedure, the full effects will begin to appear.
How long does a nonsurgical facelift or necklift last?
Most patients can expect to see their results from a PDO thread lift last between 1 – 3 years. It is important to remember that the aging process is constant, and no lift procedure, even plastic surgeries, is permanent.
