Advances in aesthetic technology have led to innovations in anti-aging, allowing you to look years younger without surgery. An Instalift with PDO threading is a minimally-invasive procedure that utilizes surgical-grade, dissolvable sutures that lift and reset the facial skin and tissues with minimal pain, discomfort, or downtime – with results that are truly remarkable. There are several reasons why Burbank skin tightening patients choose Skin Matrx. We perform customized thread lifts with meticulous care to create beautiful results.
Results and Recovery
Results are immediately visible, though your final shape may be slightly obscured by minor swelling and bruising. Some patients experience a slight skin irregularity where the threads were inserted, with these side effects fading in two to three days, leaving you looking years younger – no surgery required.
You can expect the results to last for two to three years, after which a follow-up procedure can be performed to maintain the look.
While the recovery is quite painless and mild, our post-operative recommendations can ensure you attain the best possible and longest-lasting results:
- Apply cold packs after treatment to reduce swelling
- You may gently apply makeup immediately after treatment
- Sleep face-up during the week following the procedure
- Treat your face gently when cleansing
- Avoid any treatments or activities that could aggravate your face as it heals, including heat therapies, dental work, or massaging the area
