What is a PDO Thread Lift?
A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. PDO stands for polydioxanone, a safe material that is frequently used in surgical sutures. This treatment works by placing PDO threads in the face, which lift and tighten the skin in the treated areas. Over time, these PDO threads are naturally absorbed by the body, triggering collagen production. This means that a PDO thread lift delivers instant lifting results while facilitating long-term skin rejuvenation, leading to a further reduction in lines and wrinkles.
How is a PDO Thread Lift Performed?
During PDO thread lifts, we use an anesthetic to minimize any discomfort that may arise during treatment. Then, the PDO threads are inserted into the skin using a tiny needle. These threads are carefully placed to lift the desired areas of the face, helping the patient achieve instant results in addition to the long-term benefits of PDO thread lifts. This process can take as long as an hour, depending on the results desired.
What Results Can I Expect from a PDO Thread Lift?
The results are visible immediately after your treatment, as the PDO threads provide a lifting effect in the skin. These threads are slowly absorbed by the body over the following six months, during which time collagen production begins to increase in the body. You will notice optimum results between three and six months after treatment, when collagen is actively working with results of the PDO thread lift. After the threads fully dissolve, collagen helps to maintain the results of your PDO thread lift for as long as two years after treatment.
What is the Recovery Like After a PDO Thread Lift?
As a non-surgical treatment, a PDO thread lift requires significantly less downtime than surgical alternatives such as the facelift. Patients will typically experience bruising or swelling for a few days after treatment. During this time, we recommend that patients take off of work to help the healing process. During the following week, you will need to keep any strenuous activity to a minimum, as it can negatively impact your recovery and results. During your consultation, we will walk you through any additional instructions that need to be followed after treatment.
