As your skin ages, it loses collagen. The consequences are a loss of elasticity, a heavy appearance, and sagging in the jowls and mouth area. PDO thread lifts work to prevent and reverse the ageing process— they are an ideal choice if you want more jawline definition and facial fat slimming. PDO thread lifts are known as “lunchtime facelifts” because they are only minimally invasive and require almost no downtime compared to other lifting methods.
When you get a PDO thread lift for the jowls, your doctor inserts dissolvable, sugar-based sutures under the skin in a mesh-like pattern. These biodegradable filaments restart the production of youth-enhancing proteins: elastin and collagen. As a result, PDO threads can delay and reverse age-related skin sagging, refresh a healthy blood flow, and over time, help slim the facial fat deposits that cause a heavy jowl appearance.
Using PDO threads in the jowl area can be the right choice if you experience heaviness around the mouth and jowls, a loss of jawline definition, or squaring of the lower face. If your goals are lifting the jowls and improving skin quality, you will see immediate results that settle after 6 to 12 weeks when collagen deposits mature. If your aesthetic objectives are achieving a slimmer lower face and more jawline definition, you will experience changes between 4 to 12 weeks after treatment.
