About Thread Lift

When you are unsure if you are ready for a surgical procedure, like a full facelift, to correct your maturing skin, our board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, would like to offer you a consultation for a thread lift procedure with PDO (polydioxanone) or Silhouette Soft® threads. Smooth wrinkles and lift the skin with a natural-looking result with this new technique of inserting absorbable sutures within the deep layers of your skin. After this minimally invasive procedure at Beyond Beautiful in Plano, TX, your skin will look younger without an extensive recovery period. It is also a wonderful supplementation for patients using cosmetic injectables. If you love the look your BOTOX® gives your facial appearance, we invite you to learn more about a thread lift. The procedure itself takes less than one hour as an outpatient procedure.

Vampire Thread Lift

With the loss of youthful volume and a weakened facial support structure, the aging face begins to appear longer as skin tissues loosen. Though conventional means of lifting the face involve surgery, the PDO Thread Lift is a non-surgical option that safely and effectively lifts and contours sagging skin on the face, neck, and jawline using FDA-approved absorbable threads.

The PDO Thread Lift treatment at Beyond Beautiful is tailored to the individual and their specific facial aesthetic goals. In either case, as sutures are placed below the skin’s surface, the body elicits a natural inflammatory and healing response by signaling the production of collagen. Essentially, the newly formed collagen secures the lifting of the skin, and over time, it continues to produce results. What’s more, is that the threads are naturally broken down by the body and do not leave scarring behind. Additionally, the versatility of PDO threads allows them to be placed according to a patient’s specific aesthetic requests or goals.

Ideal Candidates For a Thread Lift

Men and women of good health may be great candidates for a thread lift procedure using the PDO or Silhouette InstaLift threads. If you have wrinkles, fine lines, and mild to moderate loose skin on your face and want natural-looking results without surgery, you have indicators that InstaLift may be the right rejuvenation treatment for you.

Which Threads Are Right For Me?

During your initial consultation at Beyond Beautiful, Dr. Ho will talk with you about your aesthetic goals in order to recommend the best threading option for you. While both PDO and Silhouette threads are nonsurgical, they utilize different materials to create your optimal results.

PDO Threads
PDO threads are created with polydioxanone, a material that has been used for multiple decades in tissue engineering. It is safe and effective for an instant lift of the skin to combat the effects of aging and skin laxity.

Silhouette Soft® Threads
Silhouette threads are made with PLLA, or poly-L-lactic acid, which is effective in providing skin rejuvenation. Used for years in injectable treatments, PLLA is now available for threading in order to offer exceptional outcomes for an overall younger-looking face.

What to Expect During a Thread lift

During your scheduled appointment, we will invite you to our minor procedures room to relax comfortably in the treatment chair. Then, we will use a washable marker to mark the incision entrance and exit points on your facial skin. To keep you comfortable during the procedure, we will inject a local anesthetic, such as lidocaine, into the skin before the InstaLift sutures are threaded into your incision points. It is important to follow all your plastic surgeon's aftercare instructions. The procedure lasts 45 min – 1 hour. In the following weeks, the threaded cones and sutures will dissolve to jump-start healthy collagen production in the process.

Anticipated Results

To get dramatic results, we can combine your PDO thread lift or Silhouette Soft with other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as cosmetic injectable wrinkle relaxers and/or fillers, laser skin resurfacing, nonsurgical skin tightening, and more. Regardless, you will see a difference in your facial skin right away. You may also see swelling and bruising. Be diligent in your aftercare for the incision points, and call our office if you experience signs of infection, allergic reaction, or nerve injury after your appointment.
