If you’re considering a non-surgical facelift, PDO threads are a great option to lift and contour your jawline. PDO threads are made of polydioxanone, a biocompatible material that stimulates collagen production, leading to a more @@@@, lifted outcome. PDO threads can be used to lift various areas of the face, but in this article, we’ll be focusing on the jawline.

When it comes to the number of PDO threads you’ll need for your jawline, it really depends on your individual anatomy and the degree of sagging you’re experiencing. Generally speaking, most patients need anywhere from 4 to 10 threads per side for the jawline. However, it’s important to consult with a trained and experienced practitioner to determine the exact number of threads that will give you the best results.

The procedure involves inserting PDO threads underneath the skin, which attach to the tissues and provide lift. For the jawline, the threads are inserted in a fan-like pattern from the ear area to the chin area. The threads contain cogs or barbs that provide a strong grip on the tissues, leading to a lift in the skin.

The skin around the mandible is composed of several structures, including fat pads, muscles, and skin. As we age, these structures start to lose volume and elasticity, leading to sagging and a loss of definition in the jawline. PDO threads work by lifting these structures and anchoring them to the surrounding tissues, providing a more lifted and defined jawline.

One of the key factors in achieving good results with PDO threads is ensuring that they are placed in the subcutaneous plane. This is the layer of tissue just below the skin, where the threads can provide the most lift and support. Placing the threads too superficially or too deeply can lead to unsatisfactory results or complications.

The cogs and barbs on PDO threads play an important role in lifting the skin. The cogs act like a gear, gripping onto the tissues and holding them in place, while the barbs provide additional lift and support. The combination of cogs and barbs allows for a strong and effective lift, which can improve the definition and contour of the jawline.

The shape of the thread cogs and barbs used in PDO thread lifts plays an important role in the effectiveness of the treatment. For the jawline, the threads are typically inserted in a fan-like pattern, with the cogs and barbs oriented towards the area that needs to be lifted. The design of the cogs and barbs can vary, with some threads having bidirectional cogs and barbs that provide lift in multiple directions.

Bidirectional threads can be useful in the jawline area, as they allow for a more comprehensive lift and contouring effect. The bidirectional cogs and barbs provide lift both vertically and horizontally, which can improve the definition and shape of the jawline.

While Silhouette Soft threads have been used in other areas of the face, they are not typically recommended for the jawline. This is because Silhouette Soft threads are made of polylactic acid, which is absorbed by the body over time. While this can be beneficial for certain areas of the face, such as the cheeks or temples, it may not provide the long-lasting lift and support needed for the jawline. Additionally, the Silhouette Soft threads are not designed with cogs or barbs, which are crucial for providing the necessary lift and support in the jawline area.

The entry areas for the PDO threads are typically located behind the ear and in the area just in front of the earlobe. These entry points are chosen because they allow for a discreet placement of the threads, with minimal scarring or visible signs of treatment.

In summary, PDO threads are a great option for lifting and contouring the jawline. The number of threads needed will depend on your individual anatomy and the degree of sagging you’re experiencing. By inserting the threads in the subcutaneous plane and using cogs and barbs to provide lift, PDO threads can help create a more defined and @@@@ jawline.
