Initially, the doctor determines where the threads will pass though as they are inserted into the dermis of the skin, at a specific depth and a specific direction, using a thin needle. The absorbable PDO threads create an interior matrix under the skin, which causes an inflammatory reaction, thus attracting platelets and neutrophils, which stimulate fibroblasts and monocytes. Hence, what we accomplish is angiogenesis and collagen and elastin production. In parallel, the skin’s defense mechanism translates the insertion of the threads as a wound therefore immediately stimulating the healing process that leads to a natural production of collagen, resulting in skin tightening and a reduction of surface wrinkles that in turn enhance the effects of the treatment.
The process is painless, non-invasive and scar-free. This treatment cannot replace a surgical lift however it remains a very good alternative for people who have mild skin sagging and do not want to undergo surgery. After treatment you may experience a mild edema and rarely any bruising - that gradually disappears over the next couple of days of which you may also experience sensitivity in the treated region. You can return to your activities straight after the treatment, with the only recommendation being that of avoiding strenuous exercise for the first few days. The results are visible immediately after the procedure and improve up to three months later as collagen production continues and is maintained between twelve to eighteen months. The Easy Lift treatment may also be used for improving an oval face, correcting fine lines and emphasizing the cheekbones. This treatment is also successful on other areas of the body that may need tightening and lifting, such as the arms, abdomen, knees, inner thighs and buttocks. Keep in mind that the PDO threads are completely absorbable by the body and leave no traces behind.
