PDO Thread Lift: Everything You Need to Know

Looking for a safe and effective way to look younger? You’ve heard of facelifts – but have you heard of thread lifts? This new and innovative procedure helps improve your skin’s elasticity, so you see a fresher appearance. 

Dr. Naima Cheema offers this one-of-a-kind treatment at Nexclin Medicine in Roswell, Georgia. Whether you want to take a few years off your face, or you want a smoother appearance, Dr. Cheema can develop a plan to meet your beauty goals.

What is a thread lift?

Thread lifts involve the use of sutures to subtly “lift” your skin, as opposed to removing loose skin with surgery. Dr. Cheema simply sews up portions of skin for a tighter appearance.

Besides avoiding surgery, thread lifts encourage your skin to produce more collagen in the areas that need healing. Collagen is extremely important to this process because it’s the protein that naturally keeps your skin looking smooth and elastic.

What should you expect during the procedure?

After your thread lift procedure, you’ll start to notice increased firmness and improved skin tone. Your body’s natural healing responses will be stimulated as the threads are put into place, which will help get rid of the sutures. The sutures and threads are very small, so you shouldn’t experience any pain during the procedure. 

What so many patients love about thread lifts is the minimal pain and discomfort. Unlike other treatments, strong pain medication isn’t usually needed afterward – even as your skin begins to heal. 

What are the differences between thread lifts and facelifts?

Because you won’t require any heavy painkillers for a thread lift, you won’t have to cancel any of your plans following your procedure. No downtime means you can go to work the next day, take care of your family, and spend time with friends.

Recovering after a thread lift is simple by comparison. You’ll have a local anesthetic, as opposed to general, and you can safely drive yourself home afterward. There may be a little bit of soreness and swelling. With that said, you'll be able to resume your normal activities the very next day. You can take some pain medication as needed, but you shouldn't require anything heavy enough to impair your normal functions.
