As we age, our faces will droop due to gravity and loss of skin elasticity and volume. Thread lift is a non-surgical, minimally invasive alternative to surgical facelifts. If you want to opt for a safe procedure to combat the signs of aging and make your face look younger and tighter, a thread lift can be the best choice.

Our aesthetic physicians at The Youth Fountain have the training and experience to offer the most advanced thread lift treatments to our clients in and around Freehold that can effectively turn back the clock on your aging process.

A thread lift is a procedure that inserts a surgical suture that is made of a resorbable material called polydioxanone or PDO. The thread will be dissolved by the body in 6 months.

After a small puncture is made in the skin, the PDO thread is inserted through a blunt cannula. After the cannula is removed, the suture will anchor into the dermis, the deep layer of the skin.

When the anchored PDO thread is pulled back, it creates an immediate lift.

How Long Does a Thread Lift Last?

The PDO thread will dissolve around 6 months. The body will form collagen around the dissolved suture, creating a longer lift duration. One treatment will give the patient approximately a 12–18 month improvement. Dr. Shakov always recommends that his patients have a second procedure at the 6-month mark to reinforce the lift and create a significant lift with longer results.

What Are the Downsides of a Thread Lift?

The PDO Thread Lift can have potential risks and complications from the procedure.

Some of the milder risks include:

  • Pain
  • Hypersensitivity of the skin
  • Visible Suture
  • Skin deformity
  • Swelling
  • Infection
  • Bruising
  • Lumps

How Much is a PDO Thread Lift?

The cost of a PDO Thread Lift at The Youth Fountain is based on the number of threads necessary for the procedure. Dr. Shakov will review the procedure with you during the consultation and discuss how many threads he anticipates placing for the desired aesthetic result.

Threads Per Area:

  • Brow 6-12
  • Temple 4-8
  • Cheeks 4-8
  • Nasolabial Fold 6-10
  • Marionette 4-6
  • Jowls 4-6
  • Jawline 4-8

Can Dermal Filler Be Combined with PDO Threads?

Dermal Filler are an excellent adjunct for the PDO Thread Lift. While the threads lift and tighten the skin, they will not replenish lost volume. That is why dermal fillers can complete facial contouring and augmentation. After a PDO Thread Lift, you will require less dermal filler to accomplish a facial rejuvenation procedure. Dr. Shakov can explain this to you during the consultation process.
