The aging process shows itself in many ways, the most visible being wrinkles and sagging skin as well as changes in the facial skeleton, musculature and connective tissues.

To address the above and rejuvenate the ageing face and neck, a variety of non-surgical procedures are available. The most commonly used options in the non-surgical aesthetics clinics are Botox, dermal fillers and non-surgical thread lifts. These procedures have become popular in recent years as they allow for a faster turnaround time and can be performed during the patient’s lunch break, making it less time consuming and more convenient.

For a rejuvenated neck and facial appearance, Dr. Reddy recommends a combination treatment of dermal fillers and thread face and neck lifting.

There has been an increased interest in thread lifting over the past few of years in South Africa simply because it is regarded as an alternative to more invasive procedures such as a surgical facelift due to the long recovery time and costs.

Thread lift procedures are very effective on treating sagging skin and can be used to lift, re contour and define the face. PDO thread lifting is a minimally invasive walk in, walk out procedure that doesn’t require general anesthetic, giving natural looking results with very little down time. In addition to lifting the sagging skin on the face and neck areas, PDO threads are used to stimulate collagen production in the skin; because of this, they work well in combination with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as dermal fillers. For the best effects, all types of threads can be used together or in conjunction with other treatment such as dermal fillers. Using threads in combination with dermal fillers will give superior results by addressing the issue of volumetric change.

Dermal filler injections replace the structure that collagen forms in the skin and helps with keeping the skin firm and taut by smoothing the folds and wrinkles from the inside out. As the PDO threads stimulate collagen production, they extend the immediate wrinkle-smoothing effects of the dermal fillers preventing the skin from folding over. This results in lesser treatments and long-lasting age-defying results.

Patients see an immediate improvement seconds after the treatment – firmer skin, less wrinkles. Lifting effects improve over a period of 2-6 months as new collagen grows between the threads and gives a further lift and tightening to the skin. After the threads dissolve, the lifting results remain for up to three years.
