PDO Threads

What Is a PDO Thread lift?

A PDO thread lift is a revolutionary new treatment in the world of aesthetics. However, PDO threads have been used safely for decades for various other applications. A PDO thread lift mechanically results in instant skin lifting and skin tightening. It promotes collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles, and more elastic skin. One of the benefits of this treatment is it only takes 15 to 30 minutes. After that, you’re free to return to work or whatever else you had scheduled for the rest of your day.

What Types of PDO Threads Are There?

There are two primary types of PDO threads, each serving its unique purpose. They are smooth threads and lifting threads. Depending on your aesthetic goals, your provider may use one or more thread types during your rejuvenation process.

Is This Treatment Safe?

This treatment is completely safe. It is approved by the FDA for safety and efficiency. In fact, hundreds of thousands of treatments have been performed so far, and there are no reports of allergic reactions, sensitivities to the threads, or serious side effects or risks.

What Areas Can a PDO Thread Lift Treat?

Since a PDO thread lift is so versatile, it can treat virtually any area of the face and body, including the following:

  • Neck
  • Jowls
  • Jawline
  • Naso jugal folds
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Crow’s feet
  • Undereye area
  • Eyebrows
  • Cheeks
  • Marionette lines

How Soon Will I See Results?

Some treatment results, such as skin lifting and some contouring effects, are visible immediately after treatment. The final results of your PDO thread lift will be seen within one to two months of your treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Most of our clients enjoy satisfactory results after just one treatment. However, six to nine months after your first treatment, you will be requested to visit follow-up so that we can determine if you need a follow-up treatment. After that, you shouldn’t need another treatment for several years.

Am I a Good Candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?

If you are looking to correct uneven pigmentation, lines, wrinkles, gaunt facial features or skin laxity of the face, you are a good candidate for a PDO thread lift. In addition, you are a particularly good candidate for this treatment if you want an instant facial lift but don’t have the time or money to commit to a traditional facelift.
