If you want to look years younger without surgery, the Flawless Thread Lift in Bakersfield (or PDO thread lift) is a non-surgical treatment used to lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck, lips, and body.
Flawless Thread Lift: Everything to Expect
Crafted with a unique patented technology, Flawless Thread Lifts help enhance your features.
Before treatment, we will cleanse your skin, and then it will be marked to help guide us during the procedure. Lidocaine will be injected to help keep you comfortable. We will then create a small entry point for the threads. Tiny barbs are then strategically placed and molded around the thread.
Once the threads are placed into the skin, the barbs anchor onto sagging skin, and the thread can be adjusted to achieve a naturally appealing and defined look. While this improves the appearance of sagging skin, PDO also promotes the stimulation of collagen and neovascularization, thereby improving skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume. You can also combine the PDO thread lift with other procedures such as wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers, and laser treatments such as BBL®. Treatment time typically takes 60 minutes.
Most patients experience some swelling and bruising after a PDO thread lift, but this should settle within 2-3 weeks. During recovery, you should avoid:
- Sleeping on your stomach or side (for 5 days)
- Applying makeup (for 12 hours following the procedure)
- Drinking alcohol (for 2 weeks)
- Smoking (for 2 weeks)
- Having a facial or facial massage (for 10 days)
- Making extreme facial expressions (until we advise)
- Strenuous activities/exercise (until we advise)
Your body will absorb the PDO threads 6-8 months after insertion, but the results can last for up to one year because PDO stimulates collagen production and neovascularization in the skin. Results will vary depending on your specific degree of sagging, thickness of the skin, and facial structure.
