Lift and Smooth threads are a non-surgical, minimally invasive way to improve the look of your skin and lips. We inject a synthetic absorbable thread made of polydioxanone (PDO) under the skin. As the body absorbs this thread over 4 to 6 months, it stimulates your body to produce more collagen.
Revive RX Med Spa is thrilled to offer this one-of-a-kind service taking beauty to the next level! The PDO Thread Lift procedure safely and instantly lifts loose skin on the face, neck and the body with minimal downtime.
As we age, the effects of gravity become more noticeable on our faces, especially as our facial support structure weakens and we lose facial fat. Until recently, the only way to address problems caused by facial skin laxity – such as saggy jowls and droopy cheeks – was through a facelift.
PDO stands for polydioxanone, which is safely absorbed by the body. Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair, made of protein. Your skin will fully absorb the PDO threads within 4 to 6 months without leaving any scar tissue. PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, causing a foreign body reaction that improves the blood flow to the area stimulating neocollagenesis, the production of new collagen in the skin. This is the principle behind many aesthetic procedures such as; fractional lasers, skin tightening treatments and microneedling or PRF.
Anyone with minimal signs of aging who needs just a small lift. Good candidates are those patients who are starting to see some droopiness of the brow, cheeks, jowls and/or neck and would like to see a lift effect, but do not want the risk, scars, or recovery of a real brow lift, facelift, or neck lift operation.
