Anti-aging treatments have come a long way. Not too long ago, your primary options for rejuvenating your face were surgical face-lifts — invasive procedures with extensive downtime — and Botox®, which is effective for some wrinkles but doesn’t address many of the key signs of aging. Fortunately, today you have more and more options to treat the effects of aging like the loss of facial volume and sagging skin.
At our PureMD MedSpa offices in Dayton, Liberty Township, and Dayton, Ohio, we offer game-changing, minimally invasive treatments to help you look years younger — instantly. With JUVÉDERM® fillers and polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifts, Priyesh Mehta, MD, and other members of our PureMD MedSpa team turn back the clock.
Which treatment is right for you? It depends on which signs of aging affect your face. Let’s look at the specific signs of aging both these treatments address.
The benefits of JUVÉDERM fillers
JUVÉDERM fillers restore volume wherever your face needs it most. When you’re young, your skin makes plenty of a protein called collagen, which keeps it plump and taut. But as you age, decreased collagen production leads to less volume on your face. This can cause:
- Hollow cheeks
- Chin wrinkles
- Deeper nasolabial folds
- Sagging jowls
- Vertical lip lines
- Marionette lines
- Thinning lips
Fortunately, with JUVÉDERM, Dr. Mehta can replace the volume your face loses over time. With this quick, injectable treatment, he smooths wrinkles, restores the natural contours of your face, and fills your lips, helping you look your best at every age.
Once you and Dr. Mehta discuss your aesthetic goals, the actual JUVÉDERM treatment takes just minutes. And it’s often called a lunchtime procedure because you can continue on with your day immediately after, enjoying your results with no downtime. The results from JUVÉDERM can last a year or more.
The benefits of a PDO thread lift
While JUVÉDERM is excellent at replenishing facial volume, sometimes your skin needs more support to defy gravity. In these cases, a thread lift with safe, specially designed PDO threads delivers. At PureMD MedSpa, we use NovaThreads® to give you a nonsurgical face-lift.
These threads are made from the same material as absorbable surgical sutures, but they have directional barbs placed along the threads. Once your PureMD MedSpa provider places the thread under your skin with a thin cannula, those barbs anchor the PDO thread in place, lifting your skin wherever you need it.
We personalize your PDO thread lift to you, using it to restore your profile, smooth wrinkles, help your eyes look more open, or deliver lifting wherever you need it. Over time, your skin safely absorbs the PDO thread. The process of placing the thread triggers collagen production in the area, though, so the thread is replaced by a new network of collagen to help your skin stay lifted and tight. The results of your PDO thread lift can last for years, and there’s no downtime with this treatment.
With JUVÉDERM, PDO thread lifts, and a range of other treatments, our team at PureMD MedSpa offers what you need to look and feel your best. If you’re ready to look years younger with no downtime, let us personalize a treatment for you.
