This treatment is a very quick and effective means of fighting age related problems.
How long will it last?
A thread lift’s lasting life depends on the age of the patient at the time of procedure and how much sagging the thread lift has been used to correct. It should be noted that sagging will return over time, however results last for anything between 2 and 3 years. To extend the results it is possible to have additional threads inserted.
A PDO threads procedure takes as little as one hour, but it depends on the number of threads needed and the areas being treated.
