PDO Thread Lift treatment is a safe and minimally invasive procedure designed to lift facial features while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving texture, and tightening sagging skin tissues. Skin loses elasticity through natural aging, and the PDO threads can be beneficial anywhere on the body, but they work best on the face and neck. With threads made of Polydioxanone, they can also tighten skin on the stomach, above the knees, thighs, and upper arms by supporting the tissue that has diminished and repositioning the skin by lifting it.
This procedure works by inserting the threads and lifting the treated areas, available in various textures for customized treatments to treat different skin concerns. PDO threads are tiny dissolvable sutures inserted deeply into the skin with a tiny needle, and the result is a rejuvenated appearance immediately following the procedure. They work to firm and smooth the skin in targeted areas by generating cellular renewal through collagen stimulation. This procedure improves skin texture, fine lines, and elasticity for both men and women.
What is a PDO thread?
PDO threads are tiny, dissolvable suture threads inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small needles. Their placement causes micro-injuries that trigger the body to produce more significant amounts of natural collagen and elastin to repair the microscopic damage. The threads remain in place for around 6 to 8 months, after which they are absorbed into the body, leaving new collagen!
How long is the procedure?
PDO thread lifts for the eye area take only minutes after the topical anesthetic is applied. For other areas, treatment may take up to an hour.
What can I expect from the results?
You can expect immediate results, and the lifted eyebrows or other treated areas can remain for up to two years due to cell rejuvenation. Results may vary.
How many treatments will I need?
Annual or semi-annual maintenance is recommended.
Will I need time to recover?
Bruising and swelling are common and resolves within 1-2 weeks. Therefore, allow a minimum of 2 weeks ahead of events/vacations.
