Dean Wellness Institute Offers Non-Surgical Facelift

Dean Wellness Institute offers the PDO Thread Lift. This non-surgical facelift uses a minimally invasive technique to correct facial drooping by instantly lifting and tightening loose skin around the face and neck. “It is especially effective for patients who have mild to moderate jowling of the lower third of the face and those who want to improve fine wrinkles, specifically on both side of the cheeks,” says Melissa Dean, MD, who performs the procedure for her patients.


The PDO Thread Lift technique uses polydioxanone (PDO) suture material that resorbs over two months and has been used for years for suturing deep dermal layers in general surgery. Once inserted, the threads anchor the skin and smooth fines lines and wrinkles, rebuild collagen, and lift the skin upwards. They work by provoking the body's healing response and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. “Collagen helps support "growth factors" that greatly influences the condition of our skin. In addition to being used for wound healing, collagen helps to keep our skin strong, voluminous and supple,” says Dr. Dean.


Most people can’t feel their threads once the skin has healed around them and can return to work immediately.
