Dental aesthetics is more than just veneers and dentures. Creating the perfect smile for each patient goes beyond fixing the teeth—it also involves treating the skin around the mouth for a more youthful look overall.
And for lines and sagging around the mouth, PDO thread lifts are a great option.
What is a PDO Thread Lift?
PDO threads are sutures made of polydioxanone that are inserted beneath the skin’s surface and lifted to provide an immediate lift and stimulate collagen production, thus firming the skin and underlying tissue.
They can produce a subtle, natural-looking, and more youthful appearance when positioned properly, particularly around the lower face and jawline, which tend to sag with age.
Because they’re made of polysaccharide chains, PDO threads are sometimes advertised as “sugar lifts,” which means the body absorbs them over time, reducing the risk of infection or rejection.
PDO threads can address several cosmetic concerns, such as:
- Glabellar lines
- Frown lines
- Laugh lines or marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
This treatment is generally painless, though some patients may experience some discomfort. A significant yet subtle lift is immediately noticeable after the treatment, while the boost in collagen means the skin will look and feel smoother and firmer each day in the treated area for months.
How Can a PDO Thread Lift Enhance Your Smile?
There’s more to a lovely smile than just a complete set of white teeth. Since a PDO thread lift is a versatile procedure, it can be used to address several cosmetic concerns around the mouth to further enhance a dazzling smile.
These threads can boost the skin’s natural collagen production in the treated area/s via a controlled healing process, while also providing an instant lift for a particular area on the face.
Over time, the boost in the skin’s natural collagen production restores facial volume for skin that looks and feels smoother and firmer each day for months.
In sum, PDO thread lifts bring about the following benefits:
- An instant lift. PDO threads provide an instant lift, improving the overall appearance of the face, particularly around the cheeks, chin, and around the sagging jowls. These threads are sometimes used in conjunction with dermal fillers for maximum results.
- Smoother, more youth-looking skin. Over time, the body absorbs the PDO threads inserted under the skin. This triggers a controlled healing response, paving the way for a boost in collagen production.
Aside from an instant lift, the new collagen also promotes tighter skin and provides a subtle lift around the cheeks and areas surrounding the mouth, giving you a more youthful appearance by diminishing smile lines and perhaps even helping to help balance out an asymmetrical smile.
