How to Get a Facelift With No Downtime

Progress seems to be happening faster every day. As technology, medical knowledge, and aesthetic techniques move forward, you have expanding options. That’s especially true of your choices for transforming your skin. Gone are the days when your best choice for turning back the clock was a surgical facelift. Today, you have alternatives that don’t require you to go under the knife — or wait out an uncomfortable, drawn-out recovery period afterward. 

At our PureMD MedSpa offices in Dayton, Liberty Township, and Dayton, Ohio, we strive to offer you the latest, safest anti-aging treatments. Today, let’s explore your options for facial rejuvenation so you can get the facelift you want without downtime you don’t need. 

Using PDO threads for a nonsurgical facelift

When people come to our PureMD MedSpa team saying they’re considering a facelift, we usually start by introducing them to an alternative. With a facelift using polydioxanone (PDO) threads, you can lift and tighten your skin without the need for a single incision. 

The threads we use during these nonsurgical facelifts are made from the same material as absorbable surgical sutures. The difference between surgical sutures and NovaThreads® — the threads we use — is that the NovaThreads feature a special design. They have small directional barbs running along the thread. 

To deliver your nonsurgical facelift, we inject this thread under the surface of your skin using a hollow needle. Once the needle is removed, the NovaThread grabs the surrounding skin, delivering an instant lifting and tightening effect. The results are akin to a surgical facelift but you don’t have to worry about any downtime. 

Additionally, as we place the thread, we stimulate your skin to produce collagen. This protein keeps your skin tight and elastic. Your skin safely absorbs the NovaThread in the coming months, leaving behind a new network of collagen to give you rejuvenated skin that lasts. 

More options for turning back the clock

A PDO thread treatment most closely mimics the results of a surgical facelift, but it’s far from the only option we offer to help you refresh your skin and reduce the signs of aging. At our offices, our team customizes a facial rejuvenation treatment plan for you. Our goal is to help you reach your cosmetic goals with the treatments that will deliver the best results alongside the least amount of downtime.
