PDO Thread Lift in McAllen, TX

PDO thread lifts offer patients the ability to achieve results similar to a facelift, but without any surgery. This treatment produces long-lasting lifting results without significant downtime. If you live in McAllen, Brownsville, the Rio Grande Valley, or anywhere within South Texas, come see us at RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center to see how you can benefit from a PDO thread lift.

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.

How Much Does a PDO Thread Lift Cost?

To determine the cost of your PDO thread lift, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at our practice. During your consultation, we will assess your cosmetic goals in order to pursue a treatment plan that matches your unique needs. Then, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your treatment. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we accept a number of payment and financing options, including cash, checks, money orders, major credit cards, and CareCredit® financing. We also offer simple and secure online payment options for the convenience of our patients.
