    What is a PDO Thread Lift?

    A PDO thread lift is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that can be used to tighten and lift sagging skin.

    PDO threads are medical grade suture material made from polydioxanone, which has been used in medical procedures for many years. During a PDO thread lift, your provider will inject a numbing agent in the area being treated to keep you comfortable, and then the threads will be inserted under your skin with precise placements to achieve the type of lift you desire. The number of threads and their particular placement depends on your specific needs and aesthetic goals.

    What can a PDO Thread Lift do?

    A PDO thread lift can improve the appearance of many areas of the body, including the face, neck and jowls. Each thread will dissolve over the next 10-12 weeks, however during that time your body creates it’s own collagen support structure around the thread holding it in place for 12-18 months. While threads do not provide a facelift type lift, they do provide a significant lifting to the skin providing a more youthful appearance and enhancing self-confidence. Unlike lifting threads we also offer smooth threads.

    PDO Thread Lift vs a Facelift

    While a facelift can provide excellent results, it is a much more invasive procedure than a PDO thread lift. A facelift requires hospitalization, anesthesia and incisions, which can lead to scarring, with a much longer recovery time than a PDO thread lift. A PDO thread lift is a much less invasive procedure than a facelift. It does not require anesthesia or incisions and has a shorter recovery time.

    Am I a candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?

    PDO thread lifts are usually performed in an outpatient setting. The procedure takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete. During the procedure, your doctor will insert thin needles into your skin. These needles will then be used to guide the threads through your skin. Next, the threads will be placed strategically to lift and tighten the skin. After the procedure, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and soreness. These side effects should resolve within a few days. You will be able to see the results of the procedure immediately, but they will continue to improve over the next few months.

You can help reduce swelling by applying ice to the treated area and sleeping with your head elevated for the first few days. You should avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours after the procedure and try not to touch or rub the treated area. You should also refrain from strenuous activity, sunlight exposure, and saunas for at least a week after the procedure. Bruising, aching, swelling are all common side effects.

Following these instructions carefully will help ensure optimal results.
