What are Non-Surgical Facelifts?


Everyone deserves to feel confident in their own skin, yet many of us have aspects of our appearance that make us feel insecure. And for those who don’t know much about their options or are intimidated by the idea of “going under the knife”, it may seem like accepting those insecurities is the only option. But that isn’t the case. There are many minimally invasive and non-surgical options out there for a variety of different procedures. And here at Cleveland PrimeCare we offer multiple of those services, including Non-Surgical Facelifts.

Non-Surgical Facelifts are performed using PDO threads, which lift and tighten the facial skin. Before the procedure, the area is numbed. Then the threads are inserted into different layers of tissue, which leads to an instant lifting and tightening effect (Academic Alliance in Dermatology, 2020). However, the changes seen immediately are not the only ones to occur.  PDO barbed and molded lifting threads also stimulate collagen production. This can lead to visible improvements in the skin’s tightness for 1-2 years after the procedure.

For most patients undergoing any sort of treatment, post-procedure recovery can be a concern. But with PDO lifting threads , the recovery is straightforward and simple. Since the procedure is performed with local anesthesia, patients can drive themselves home and can even return to work if they desire (American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2018). While there may be some redness or bruising, that can be limited by good pre-procedure care.  More commonly seen is mild swelling from the anesthesia and soreness where the threads are lifting the tissue. These symptoms usually dissipate within a few days. Directly after the procedure, patients can to their daily lives as normal.

Procedures like our Non-Surgical Facelift are ideal for those who want a low risk, minimally invasive option that leads to natural looking changes.
