When signs of aging start to creep up on us, it can be daunting looking in the mirror. Crows feet and the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines can make us wish we had our supple, vibrant skin back. Perhaps you’ve tried a range of options that haven’t worked, but surgery is not something you want to entertain. The good news is that there is a procedure that turns back the clock on those signs of aging and can make your skin look vibrant and youthful again – PDO Threads. If you are considering PDO Threads in Long Island or NYC, come and see Dr. Jeremy Nikfarjam or Dr. Goulart at New You Plastic Surgery. Dr. Nikfarjam is a board-certified plastic surgeon who understands the importance of safe, medical care.
A PDO Thread treatment, also referred to as a PDO Thread Lifts, is a non-surgical alternative to having a surgical face or neck lift. It is a highly effective anti-aging treatment that uses surgical-grade threads to tighten and lift the skin to a more youthful position with overall improved skin texture and quality. PDO stands for polydioxanone, the type of thread Dr. Nikfarjam uses, which is a medical-grade dissolvable suture consisting of protein fibers that have been used in wound repairs and numerous surgical procedures around the world. PDO Thread lifts are FDA-approved and have gained popularity over the years to treat and improve facial skin conditions in cosmetic medicine. It is safe for the human body and no allergy test is needed.
PDO Threads can treat the following problems:
This is by no means an exhaustive list, and when you speak with Dr. Nikfarjam for a consultation, he can advise how a PDO Thread treatment can benefit you and restore your youthful appearance.
PDO Threads is an ideal procedure for patients between ages 30 to 65 with mild to moderate skin elasticity. It is ideal for patients who want to avoid a surgical facelift, but rather actively stimulate their own collagen and elastin production to achieve a more natural and gradual result that “ages with you”. PDO Threads can be used alongside other non-surgical skin tightening lifting treatments and injectables to provide even longer-lasting results.
We can also recommend this procedure for patients who are generally healthy and have realistic goals in mind. If you are interested in getting a PDO Threads treatment to help you slow down the aging process, book a consultation with Dr. Nikfarjam today.
The first step on the road to achieving youthful, vibrant skin is to book a consultation with Dr. Nikfarjam or a member of our aesthetic team. During the consultation he will discuss every aspect of the treatment with you, from the tools being used to the price of the treatment, you will have all the information you need. Dr. Nikfarjam or one of our providers will take the time to look at the areas on your skin and face that you are looking to improve and assess how PDO Threads will benefit you. If he has any concerns, these will be discussed during your consultation, as Dr. Nikfarjam will never recommend a treatment or procedure that may potentially have adverse effects. This is also your opportunity to learn more about the treatment and ask questions you may have.
When you arrive at the clinic on the day of your PDO Threads treatment, you can expect to fill out consent paperwork before being taken into the procedure room, where Dr. Nikfarjam or Dr. Goulart will walk you through the procedure.
The first step will be to administer a type of anesthesia to numb the treatment areas, minimizing discomfort and pain throughout the procedure. Some patients don’t feel much. Others feel tugging, or say it feels ‘intense’. Next, Dr. Nikfarjam will perform the lift on the focus areas. The procedure can take up to an hour or less, depending on the area being treated.
Once the procedure is complete, Dr. Nikfarjam and his team will give you all the necessary information for post-recovery.
This is a non-surgical procedure that carries low risk and minimal pain, which means most patients can resume their regular activities and go back to work the next day.
You may experience some mild redness or soreness in the treatment areas, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication, or a topical ointment that Dr. Nikfarjam can recommend. After any cosmetic procedure, we always advise taking care of your skin by wearing sunscreen, avoiding harsh weather conditions, having a healthy diet, and drinking plenty of water.
The cost of PDO Threads in Long Island or NYC can vary depending on a number of factors including, the area being treated, the number of threads required for your treatment, the severity of issues being treated, and whether you combine it with another procedure.
