Skin Lifting Treatment
To lift and smooth to improve the appearance of wrinkles and laxity.
PDO Nova Thread Lift is an effective non-surgical option to lift loose skin for a more youthful appearance. It is a minimally invasive alternative to a facelift and provides skin tightening.
WHAT DOES PDO NOVA THREAD LIFT DO AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
By threading barbed threads underneath your skin, underlying tissue and muscles get pulled tight, lifting and sculpting the face and neck. During a natural healing process, collagen production is encouraged. The threads maintain their lift long after they dissolve. It is recommended to have a follow-up treatment at six weeks and again at 12 weeks to support the threads and increase collagen production in the area.
