PDO THREAD LIFT

WHAT IS A PDO THREAD LIFT?

As we age, our skin will eventually begin to sag. When this happens, some people will turn to surgical solutions, such as a facelift. While these procedures do lead to stunning results, they also require extensive recovery time and will leave behind scars. Fortunately, surgery is not the only option. At Beyond Medical Spa & Wellness Center, we offer a form of minimally invasive facelift called a PDO thread lift. By using dissolvable sutures, Dr. Allison Berkey and her staff are able to lift the skin on your face, making you look younger and more full of life. Visit our office in Newport Beach, CA, to learn more about what this groundbreaking treatment can do for you.

HOW ARE MINIMALLY INVASIVE FACELIFTS PERFORMED?

Before the procedure begins, will mark the entrance and exit points of the sutures on your face. Then, you’ll be asked to lie down and given local anesthesia to ensure your utmost comfort. At this point, the treatment itself can begin. We will use a synthetic type of thread, known as PDO threads, that are designed to dissolve beneath your skin. We use these sutures to lift loose skin on the face and neck, which makes the skin look tighter and younger. Due to this, the results will be noticeable at the immediate conclusion of the procedure. However, these outcomes will only continue to improve as the PDO threads will slowly dissolve into the skin, generating the production of collagen and elastin. These proteins are incredibly beneficial when it comes to the overall health and appearance of your skin and should even further improve your results from this minimally invasive facelift.

NONSURGICALLY ENHANCE YOUR FACE

PDO thread lifts are able to offer many of the same benefits of a traditional facelift without the need for surgery or any of the risks and downtime it entails. Countless men and women in Newport Beach, CA, have used it to quickly and effectively alleviate their aesthetic concerns. If you are interested in eliminating loose skin on your face and neck, we highly encourage you to contact Beyond Medical Spa & Wellness Center today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Berkey.

    Sherry is an advocate for women’s wellness and has been featured in several magazines for her knowledge and passion in skin, beauty wellness & fashion. She believes that you can reverse the signs of aging and even slow down the aging process. The key is being consistent with an anti-aging skin care regimen which means professional skin care treatments & active skin care products. Her motto is to “invest in your skin today and start showing it off!”

    As a mother of three children, Sherry can relate to the transitions of life as we start our families and then hit mid-life and start dealing with the aging process. “The physical symptoms that can accompany mid-life can be life altering, and make you feel less about yourself. In addition to routine skin care, it’s paramount that we take hormones into consideration when approaching our skin care and health.” Because of her personal journey, she took it upon herself to learn more about balancing & optimizing her hormones. She found a specialist and started the process. It was an absolute game changer for her and she aspires to be an inspiration to other women as an advocate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).

    She is excited to align herself with Beyond Med Spa which offers BHRT to both men and women. “There are so many people out there that are suffering, and they don’t need to be. Hormones run our bodies and once they are balanced at optimal levels, along with living a healthy lifestyle by exercising and taking the right vitamins/supplements, you feel and look younger. It’s anti-aging from the inside out. Bioidentical Hormones Therapy changed my life in such a positive healthy way.”

    In her free time, Sherry has created a platform called “Modern Ageless Woman.” This platform helps women over 40 to be the best versions of themselves. Healthy body, mind and spirit. She has hosted numerous successful women’s wellness events in Orange County.
