A PDO thread-lift is a minimally invasive procedure that provides contouring, volume, and skin texture improvement. The treatment lifts sagging skin using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). These threads are dissolvable and are usually used for medical sutures, which are stitches that hold a wound together.
PDO threads pull back portions of your face for a more youthful look. The stitches also trigger your body to produce more collagen, which improves your skin’s elasticity.
During your treatment, your provider first applies a numbing agent. Then, they insert the PDO threads into your skin using a small needle. Once all the threads are correctly inserted, they are pulled upwards to lift drooping tissue. The entire procedure takes between 45-60 minutes.
PDO thread lifts can address a series of issues, including:
The thread lift is a safe and quick method to reverse signs of aging in the face and neck.
After the PDO threads are introduced, you’ll notice:
After about six months, your body absorbs the threads. Your lift remains for another 3-6 months because of cellular rejuvenation triggered by the collagen. Simultaneously, the threads cause fat tissues to connect, giving you a tighter and slimmer face.
The main advantage of a lift with PDO threads is that there is no downtime. The procedure is done with a local anesthetic, which means you are free to drive yourself home or continue your workday after your appointment.
Unlike an actual facelift that can require weeks of recovery time, a PDO thread lift is a safe, nonsurgical option with a negligible recovery time.
