Has your whole face changed but you can not seem to just can not put a finger on what exactly are those changes? With time and age, you will notice your skin starting to look dull and saggy. Your skin just starts following its own course and does not listen to you, no matter how many new skincare routines you try out. This becomes a problem because the first thing people notice after meeting us has to be our faces. Your first impression always depends on your total outlook and the confidence with which you carry yourself.
Factors such as age, emotional or psychological stress, weight gain or loss and other lifestyle habits such as smoking or vaping frequently can make your face look tiresome, bland and aged. You may have lost some of that confidence of yours. The solution is definitely easier to this problem of yours. You are not alone in this. About 40% of our patients at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors come looking for such advanced procedures as thread lifts surgery, in Melbourne for all their beauty problems.
After your initial consultation with doctors, they may ask you to think about getting a facelift treatment at this point. A facelift will definitely improve the elasticity of the skin of your face. With the natural ageing process, the muscles of your face start losing their elasticity; and you have to suffer the consequences. Parts of your face like your eyebrows, your upper eyelids, your cheeks and your chin start to appear wrinkled and saggy along your skin and neck. Thus, successful facelift surgery will improve the appearance of your skin, giving you a much younger and fresher look.
Talking about facelifts, thread lift surgeries are getting more and more popular every day. Thread lift surgery is done at our Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors clinic using PDO threads.
PDO threads are made of a protein polymer called Polydioxanone. PDO threads dissolve in your skin with time. These threads relax your tendons and improve blood circulation, boosting collagen production in your skin. This gives you a more youthful look. These thread lifts are also done using FDA-approved methods.
Let us find out the areas that will be improved after you have had a thread lifts surgery :
- Both of your cheeks
- Your eyebrows, and upper eyelids
- Your lower eyelids
- Any crow’s feet around your eyes
- Your hairline
- Any stress lines present on your forehead
- Your nose
- Your jawline, chin and any double chin
- Your neckline
- Nasolabial Lines
Thread lift surgeries in Melbourne have been in the run long enough to be called safe and almost completely risk-free. At Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors, you will notice the result of your thread lift treatment almost immediately after the procedure. After about 10 – 14 days of the procedure, the protein in the PDO threads starts breaking down naturally. Over the coming weeks, you will see the results continue to improve, peaking at about 5 – 6 months.
Are you wondering how long the effects of your thread lift treatment will last? We have the answer. The results of this treatment can even last up to 3 years. The duration depends largely on your lifestyle, your own body’s metabolism, and also the effectiveness of the PDO threads. These are important in maintaining the tightening and glow of your skin.
Thread lift treatments here at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors are conscious of how we affect our environment. Hence, PDO thread in itself is undoubtedly a biodegradable product. It will disintegrate and break down within some 12 – 14 weeks. This will boost the new collagen that has started forming surrounding the PDO thread. From this point onwards, you will see steady results from the treatment. Hence, a PDO thread lift is supposed to be a very long-lasting treatment.
PDO thread lift surgeries are therefore very popular as a good option for getting facelifts. They have been proven to effectively maintain and smooth and fresh texture of the targeted areas of skin. Facial thread lift treatments are popular day by day because facelifts also cover a variety of other problems as well.
