Non-Surgical Facelift in Northmead, NSW
Non-Surgical Facelift – PDO Threads
The skin reacts to stimulation to heal itself. When a foreign substance is introduced to the skin, collagen production occurs as part of the healing process. At Martina Lavery Dental & Skin Studio, we can help you use the skin’s natural tendency to heal to your benefit.
As we age, collagen production decreases. Because of this, skin can feel thin and papery, revealing imperfections and wrinkles. Northmead dentist Dr Martina Lavery offers a non-surgical facelift option to rejuvenate and stimulate skin to produce its own collagen.
As with all procedures, Dr Lavery wants patients to feel completely comfortable and uses her skills to deliver local anaesthetic to ensure that your procedure is completed with minimal discomfort.
PDO (Polydioxanone) Thread Lift
Thread lifts are a non-invasive way to tighten and lift the skin using injectable threads that do not require traditional surgery.
By identifying problem areas and areas prone to low elasticity or sagging, Dr Lavery can target treatment to help you regain youthful looking skin without the need for traditional cosmetic surgery. The results are more predictable, and recovery time is significantly reduced over surgical procedures.
Threads introduced beneath the skin cause a collagen-inducing inflammatory response. The threads absorb into the body over the course of 4-6 months, yet collagen remains, lifting and filling out the skin. PDO threads do not leave scar tissue, which is common with traditional, surgical facelifts.
Many patients opt for PDO thread treatment near the neck and jawline, where sagging is particularly prominent.
Cog Thread Techniques
Cog threads contain small barbs, which internally engage and lift loose, sagging tissue for improved results without cutting and sutures. Collagen naturally forms near the barbs and secures the lift into place even as the thread itself begins to dissolve. Many patients find that this is the most immediate and dramatic result, with visible improvements immediately following treatment.
Dr Lavery carefully considers the direction and muscle movement in the lifted areas to elevate skin in a natural way that minimises unnatural pulling or aesthetics.
Cost of Thread Lifts
The cost of thread lifts is generally significantly lower than surgical facelifts. Of course, final pricing depends on you and your goals for your appearance. Dr Lavery will go over your treatment procedure recommendations along with a cost estimate prior to treatment.
