Screw Thread Lifts are known to be one of the most effective non-surgical alternatives to a facelift. They are highly beneficial for those who suffer from jowls on their jawline, a sagging neck, lack of volume in the cheeks, overhanging eyelids and general ageing concerns on the skin.
PDO Screw Threads are able to produce maximum results due to one or two threads being intertwined together and wrapped around the inserting needle. By a clinician using the ‘multi screw’ method of two threads intertwined, the stronger the treatment will be for lifting effects and volumising.
The Science of Screw Threads
During the thread lift procedure, threads are inserted into the dermis of the skin in an intertwined fashion wrapped around a microneedle. They are then attached to an anchor point either on the scalp or face, depending on the nature of the treatment. Once connected, the blood flow is improved on in the area before the twisted threads begin to reposition the fatty tissues back to their original state, thus reinstating volume.
This is essentially causing trauma to the dermis, provoking the body to automatically react and begin its natural healing process. During this process, the Polydioxonone, a natural, biodegradable and biocompatible synthetic polymer that forms the threads, neocollagenesis and fibroblasts all work to heal the wound.
This generation of fibroblast cells encourages a new production of collagen cells too. Collagen is a very vital protein of the skin that holds its structure, while also keeping it tight and firm. With new collagen forming around the threads, they work to rejuvenate the surface of the skin while encouraging the facial tissue’s repositioning; leaving skin plump and smooth.
Why Screw Threads?
We recommend Screw Threads for their exceptional lifting power. As opposed to a facelift which delivers permanent results at the cost of risks and a lengthy recovery period, a Screw Thread Lift is non-invasive and non-surgical; clients are given immense lifting through a safe, reliable and effective procedure.
As Polydiaxonone (PDO) is a naturally produced component in the body, it is able to achieve natural-looking results. PDO has been used for over 30 years in biomedical and pharmaceutical applications, making it a recommended and extremely safe substance for such aesthetic procedures.
With any aesthetic procedure, comes side effects. However, for all types of thread lifts, these are very minimal. Side effects may consist of and are not limited to swelling, redness, tenderness and bruising. We recommend booking in for a consultation for all of the details on your chosen treatment as information may vary.
In terms of downtime, as mentioned previously, clients can resume with their daily activities after a thread lift procedure.
As Screw Threads are well known for general face lifting and volumising, clients can result in having a smaller v-line facial shape and jawline definition. Additionally, over the course of six months as the rejuvenating is at its prime and the medical-grade sutures are dissolving, clients can watch as their skin improves.
After six months when optimum results are usually met, the skin will be tightened due to the collagen renewal and the instant lift that the threads deliver and the surface texture and appearence will be dramatically improved on.
