Unlock the secret to a more youthful and refreshed appearance with our latest breakthrough treatment – Mint Lifting Threads! As we age, the jawline is one of the most noticeable areas that can reveal our true age. The dreaded jowls and sagging skin can make us look older and more fatigued than we actually feel. But fear not, because traditional facelifts are no longer the only option.
With advancements in aesthetic medicine, non-surgical PDO thread lift treatments have taken the world by storm. We are proud to offer this cutting-edge solution at our Melbourne clinic. Our Mint Lifting Threads are the latest innovation in skin tightening and rejuvenation. They are here to help you say goodbye to sagging skin and hello to a youthful, lifted appearance.
What are Jowls?
Jowls are the sagging skin and fatty tissue that hang below the jawline, typically on either side of the chin. They are a natural part of the aging process and can be caused by factors such as loss of skin elasticity, reduced collagen production, and gravity. Jowls can make a person’s face appear less youthful and more aged.
Several treatment options are available for jowls, ranging from non-surgical to surgical methods.
Dermal Fillers: Injectable dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid can be used to add volume to the areas around the jowls, helping to lift and smooth the skin.
Ultrasound or Radiofrequency Treatments: Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses Micro-Focused Ultrasound to stimulate collagen production, tighten the skin, and improve the appearance of jowls.
PDO Lifting Tread Treatment: This minimally invasive procedure uses dissolvable threads to lift sagging skin and jowls. The threads are inserted through small incisions and then lifted to provide a natural-looking lift.
Surgical Facelift: For more severe jowls, facelift surgery may be recommended. This procedure involves removing excess skin and tightening the underlying tissues to lift and rejuvenate the lower face and neck.
It’s important to consult with a qualified professional to determine the most appropriate treatment option for your specific needs and goals.
The effectiveness of these treatments can vary depending on factors such as the severity of jowls, skin type, and overall health.
What is a Non-Surgical Thread Lift?
PDO thread lift treatment, also known as PDO (Polydioxanone) thread treatment or simply thread lift, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses dissolvable threads made of PDO material to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate sagging or loose skin in various areas of the face and body. PDO threads are inserted into the skin using small needles or cannulas, providing immediate lifting effects. The threads also stimulate collagen production, which helps to restore volume and firmness to the treated areas, which leads to long-term improvements in skin tone and texture.
What Concerns Can a Thread Lifting Treatment Treat?
PDO thread lift treatment can be used to treat a range of cosmetic concerns, including commonly treated areas below:
- Facial Sagging: PDO threads can lift and tighten sagging skin in the cheeks, jawline, neck, and eyebrows, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles: PDO threads can be used to smooth wrinkles and treat fine lines, particularly in the lower face and neck area.
- Loose Skin: PDO threads can improve skin laxity, tighten loose skin, and improve the appearance of jowls or a double chin.
- Nasolabial folds and Marionette Lines: PDO threads can lift and tighten the skin around the nose and mouth, reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds (lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth) and marionette lines (lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin).
- Eyebrow and Eyelid Lift: PDO threads can lift and reposition sagging eyebrows and upper eyelids, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed eye area.
- Neck and Décolletage Rejuvenation: PDO threads can lift and tighten the skin on the neck and décolletage area, improving the appearance of sagging or wrinkled skin in these areas.
It’s important to note that the results of PDO thread lift treatment may vary depending on the individual’s skin condition, the skill and experience of your chosen practitioner, and the type of PDO threads used. A consultation with a qualified and experienced aesthetic practitioner is recommended to determine if PDO thread lift treatment suits your desired results and to discuss expected results and potential risks.
The Benefits of Thread Lifts for Your Jowls
The benefits of a non-surgical thread lift treatment for jowls and sagging skin are numerous. Not only do they provide immediate lifting effects, but they also promote natural-looking results that improve over time as the threads naturally dissolve. Plus, with Mint Lifting Threads, you can expect minimal discomfort and downtime. Allowing you to confidently and easily return to your regular activities.
What’s Involved in a MINT PDO Thread Lifting Treatment?
Non-surgical thread lift treatment using PDO (Polydioxanone) threads involves strategically placing dissolvable threads underneath the skin to lift and tighten sagging skin in the mid and lower face, including the jawline and jowls.
Step 1: Consultation and Assessment
The treatment process typically begins with a consultation with a qualified aesthetic professional such as myself. During the complimentary consultation, I will assess your facial features, skin condition, and aesthetic goals. We are then better able to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
They will also explain the treatment process, potential risks and benefits, and address any questions or concerns.
The consultation is an important 1st step. It allows me to develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific need and desired results.
The treatment plan will involve determining the type, length, and number of PDO threads to be used and the specific areas of the mid and lower face that require lifting and tightening. The aesthetic professional will also consider the desired lifting effect, natural facial contours, and other factors to create a customised treatment approach that will achieve optimal results for you.
Step 2: Preparation and Numbing
On the day of the treatment, your face will be cleansed, and a numbing cream may be applied to the treatment area to ensure your comfort during the procedure. We will then mark the areas where the threads will be inserted, considering the desired lifting effect and your natural facial contours.
Step 3: Thread Insertion
Using a fine needle or cannula, the PDO lifting threads are inserted into the skin at specific entry points and then threaded through the subcutaneous tissue to lift and reposition the sagging skin. The threads have tiny barbs or cones that help anchor them, providing immediate lift and support to the treated area.
Step 4: Collagen Stimulation
Once the threads are in place, they stimulate natural collagen production, which provides structural support to the skin. As the threads dissolve over time, the new collagen production improves the skin’s elasticity and firmness, leading to further lifting and tightening effects.
Step 5: Adjustments and Results
During the treatment, the aesthetic professional may adjust the tension and direction of the threads to achieve the desired lifting effect. Once the threads are in their final position, the treatment is complete. The results are typically visible immediately after the treatment, with further improvement over time as collagen production continues. The lifting effect can last for several months to a year, depending on the type of PDO threads used.
Step 6: Aftercare and Recovery
After the non-surgical thread lift treatment, you may experience some mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort. These are usually temporary and resolve on their own. Specific aftercare instructions, such as avoiding strenuous activities and massaging the treated area, will be provided to optimise the results and minimise any potential complications.
Who is a Suitable Candidate for a Thread Lifting Treatment?
Non-surgical thread lift treatments are suitable for a wide range of candidates who desire skin tightening but may not be ready for a surgical facelift.
They are generally recommended for individuals with mild to moderate sagging skin and jowls around the jawline, as well as those who may not be ideal candidates for cosmetic surgery due to medical or health reasons.
Non-surgical thread lift treatments can also be a preventative measure for younger individuals who wish to maintain a youthful jawline without surgery.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Although the results from a non-surgical thread lift treatment are not permanent, the results can last for several months to a year. This also depends on the type of threads used and the individual’s response to the treatment.
The threads stimulate collagen production, which helps to maintain the lifting effect even after the threads have slowly dissolved. Additionally, some threads are designed to provide ongoing support to the tissues, leading to more long-lasting results than traditional threads.
Is a PDO Thread Treatment Painful?
The pain experienced during a lifting tread treatment can vary from person to person.
However, most patients report mild discomfort during the procedure, which is usually well-tolerated when a topical anaesthetic is applied to the treatment area. The sensation can be described as slightly pulling or tugging as the threads are inserted and positioned under the skin. The discomfort typically subsides once the threads are in place.
Post-treatment, some patients may experience mild soreness or discomfort at the thread insertion points, which can be managed with a cool compress or over-the-counter pain medication. Swelling and bruising may also occur, but these are generally temporary and resolve on their own within a few days to a week.
It’s important to note that the experience of pain or discomfort can vary greatly depending on an individual’s pain tolerance, the skill and technique of the practitioner performing the treatment, and the location and number of threads used. It’s recommended to discuss any concerns about pain or discomfort with your qualified aesthetic professional before the procedure, and they can take steps to minimise discomfort and ensure your comfort during the treatment.
