Facelift surgery is no longer the only option to treat sagging skin. Galiderm Aesthetics offers a noninvasive option to lift skin, the PDO thread lift. Galiderm Aesthetics uses only FDA-approved products and and signature techniques that will ensure a solution to pesky wrinkles with zero to minimal downtime.
How do they tighten sagging skin?
Those who have mild to moderate sagging of the neck, brows, jowls, and cheeks can benefit from a thread lift. When the thread is positioned on the face, neck, or body, it produces three magical effects:
- Instant skin tightening
- Fat tissue contraction to tighten the skin
- Boost in collagen production while improving the quality, texture, and firmness of the skin.
For those looking for ways to lift skin, recontour their face, or reduce wrinkles without having surgery, it is one of the most popular treatment options.
How does it work?
PDO threads are completely dissolvable and once they are placed into your skin they start to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. For your comfort, local anesthetic will be given at the start of your treatment.
Your provider will then skillfully insert the threads into the designated treatment areas to lift and smooth your concern areas. There are different types of threads that can be used to get your desired results.
Barbed threads are used more for lifting and contouring the shape of the face. While smooth and twisted threads are sometimes used to enhance tissue volume, or add structural support and enhance collagen production in cheeks, lips, smokers lines around the mouth, neck, around deep folds and more.
The areas to be treated will be determined based on your needs and wants during your consultation with our Thread expert who is an international trainer and Top Trainer in the nation. With the threads in place, your skin will be lifted and tightened and collagen production will be stimulated, creating an overall youthful appearance.
What areas can be treated?
One of the benefits of PDO thread lift is that it can address nearly all cosmetic concerns when it comes to your face and body. A versatile and safe rejuvenation procedure can often be used to alleviate some of the following concerns:
- Hollowing area under the eye
- Facial lines and wrinkles
- Folds around the nose and mouth
- Sagging cheeks or neck
- Reshaping your jawline or nose
