PDO Threads are used as a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the skin. Our bodies begin to lose elasticity, and bone structure can diminish as we age. PDO threads, made of polydioxanone, have been used since the 1980s. They lift the skin and tissues that have started to sag. This procedure produces more volume and plumps the treated areas. They come in various textures for customized treatments.
The PDO Thread Lift is designed to subtly lift facial features, remove fine lines and wrinkles, and tighten skin without surgery. They can be used on the face, neck, arms, stomach, thighs, and above the knees.
The threads last for up to six months, at which time they dissolve and are safely absorbed into the body. However, the lifted facial contours remain in place for up to two years.
PDO THREAD LIFT FAQ :
What is a PDO thread?
PDO threads have safely been used for years. They are tiny, dissolvable suture threads inserted into the skin. Their placement triggers the body to produce more significant amounts of natural collagen and elastin to repair the microscopic damage.
How long is the procedure?
PDO thread lifts take up to an hour after the topical anesthetic is applied, depending on what areas are treated.
What can I expect from the results?
Although you may experience swelling, you will notice results from PDO threads immediately. The results and contours in the treated areas can remain for up to two years due to cell rejuvenation.
How many treatments will I need?
Annual or semi-annual maintenance is recommended. The threads can remain in place for up to six months, after which they are safely absorbed into the body. The contours will remain in place for up to two years.
Will I need time to recover?
Bruising and swelling are common and resolve within 1-2 weeks. Allow a minimum of 2 weeks before any special events or occasions.
