Skin sagging and laxity can be addressed in a non-invasive manner. The PDO thread lift is an updated version of skin tightening and lifting moderate sagging.

How PDO thread lift technique work?
At Retens Beauty Center the aesthetic team performs PDO thread lift in private treatment rooms. The treatment takes approximately 45 minutes to conclude. Before, the session, the professionals perform a skin cleanse and then apply numbing topical cream.
It helps to reduce the discomfort you may experience during the 無針埋線 [needle-free thread embedding] session. The target insertion sites are marked as planned. Tiny, dissolvable threads are inserted below the skin surface using a fine gauge needle. These threads instantly lift the skin creating a firm, smooth, and younger look.
The threads will increase the production of collagen across 4 to 6 months and the skin tightening will persist internally as the thread dissolve.
The number of threads used will depend on the patient’s goals, anatomy, and concerns. Each thread lift is customized after the initial evaluation. The team thoroughly discusses your skin laxity levels and your goals to determine the number of threads to use. In general, 2 to 4 threads on both sides of the face are fine but an extra 2 to 4 threads may be recommended for the lower face or neck.
