PDO Threads

A PDO thread lift procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery. Smooth threads can be placed to build collagen (ie: acne scarring), while lifting threads tighten your skin by inserting medical-grade thread material into your face and then “pulling” your skin up by tightening the thread. Cellular renewal – through collagen stimulation – improves skin texture, fine lines, and elasticity.

WHAT IS PDO THREAD LIFT AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

The PDO thread lift procedure involves the implantation of fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads, similar to those which are used in medical suturing, into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using tiny needles. After the threads are inserted, you will notice an immediate lift, however, your body continues building natural collagen around their placement. Over time, the threads dissolve and your natural collagen continues building where they were placed. PDO threads can treat various areas of the face including the cheeks, brow, jawline, and neck.

HOW LONG DOES A PDO THREAD LIFT PROCEDURE TAKE?

The length of your treatment will depend on the area being targeted but typically varies from 30-60 minutes. This time includes various forms of numbing for your utmost comfort.

DOES A PDO THREAD LIFT HURT?

The procedure itself is minimally invasive and does cause micro-injuries to layers within the skin. Before beginning, a topical numbing cream is applied. Most patients remain completely comfortable during the thread insertion, after numbing

HOW WILL I LOOK AND FEEL AFTER THE TREATMENT?

You may experience minimal swelling and bruising for the first few days after your treatment and should avoid strenuous activity for 2-3 days. Otherwise, there is no significant downtime and you can get back to your usual routine immediately.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS AFTER TREATMENT?

The results of a PDO thread lift are both immediate and progressive, as the ultimate result depends on your body producing natural collagen around the thread. The lifting effect of PDO therapy reaches a peak at around 6 months post-treatment, after which time new collagen and elastin will have formed around the threads to tighten the skin and make the area look firmer, smoother and more youthful.
