At GLO Laser & Med Spa in Houston, TX, we are excited to offer a new solution to facial rejuvenation with the ThreadLift procedure. A PDO ThreadLift tightens skin tissue using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). ThreadLifts are a minimally invasive treatment for Houston area men and women who are seeking a less invasive solution for rejuvenating their facial contour. Using prolene sutures, very tiny incisions are made to the outside area of the cheeks to help lift and support loose skin around the eyes and cheeks. A PDO ThreadLift can also improve the appearance of the jowls and the upper neck area without the need for large incisions or skin removal. This treatment is performed at GLO Laser & Med Spa, and the results can be seen right away. Call our office in Houston, TX to schedule your private consultation to see if this treatment is right for you.
"Oh wow, finally I have my Ultherapy done!!!1, I am sooooo amazed by Dr. Li's extensive experience and deep knowledge about human anatomy, anesthesiology and cosmetic medicine. Its very hard to find someone who can perform this procedure well while experiencing little pain. Even during the preliminary consultation, she made sure I understood not only HOW each procedure will be done, but WHY each procedure needs to be done. You will learn a great deal about your own facial/physical construction and be able to make an informed decision on what you would like to be done.2. Dr. Li has exhibits great bedside manners and professionalism. She takes the time to listen to your needs and expectations rather jumping in and telling you what she thinks should be done. Her professional manner will instantly gain your trust and you will connect on a personable level during your visit.3.Dr. Li truly goes above and beyond for her patients. She does tailors each treatment plan to what suits YOU as an unique individual. She is a rare find, an absolute gem and will make you feel beautiful and confident inside and out.4.I consulted 3 different clinic about Ultherapy. Dr. Li's office provided is the most reasonable treatment plan. Just did my 1st treatment on 1/25/2020. Also have also been getting facials done at Dr. Li’s clinic back for the past 1.5 years. Here staff has always made me feel welcomed and treated me as a valued client."- Z.F. / Google / Jan 30, 2020

"I had laser vein treatment one month ago to remove the severe spider vein on my face. My 8-year-old daughter found the big difference in the evening after the treatment. She said my face looks much brighter and smoother. The result is far beyond my expectations. And I can't feel any discomfort at all. I'm so happy and satisfied with Dr. Li's services. She and her team are so professional and friendly. Will continue my other 3 treatments to remove my spider vein completely."- Y.Y. / Google / Oct 17, 2019

Men and women who wish to turn back the hands of time and are seeking a nonsurgical option for facial rejuvenation may be great candidates for a PDO ThreadLift. It is especially common among women over the age of 40. Houston area patients who have mild sagging or moderately loose skin on the lower, mid, or upper face can benefit from this treatment as it targets many areas, including the eyes, cheeks, jowls, and neck.
During your consultation, we will assess your skin and facial structure and consult with you about the areas you'd like to address. Based on the degree of skin sag that is present, a treatment plan will be created for your customized ThreadLift procedure. The number of sutures needed to attain your cosmetic goals will vary. At the time of your procedure, your face will be carefully marked with a cosmetic pencil to note where the threads will be inserted. The target area will be numbed with a topical ointment, such as lidocaine, and then the threads will be placed. Using precision and care, each individual thread will be carefully tied and securely knotted to ensure their hold. The PDO ThreadLift procedure typically takes about 60 – 90 minutes, depending on the number of threads used for the result you are trying to attain.
What to Expect
After your ThreadLift procedure, you will likely experience mild side effects, such as bruising, swelling, or inflammation. These are common and usually resolve in the few days that follow the procedure. Immediately following your treatment, a cold compress can help with the swelling and bruising. After about 4 – 6 months, the targeted areas on the face should be fully healed and new collagen growth occurs around the threads. Essentially, the threads act as a sort of tendon, which helps to tighten the underlying tissue or muscle to create a more taut, younger-looking appearance.
