PDO Thread-Lift

PDO Thread-Lifts by Dr. Pamela Kulback

The PDO Thread-Lift can be Performed on the Face, Lips, Neck and the body!

PDO Threads are a nonsurgical alternative to lift and tighten the skin of the face, Lips, neck, and body.  Dr. Kulback uses surgical threads that are reabsorbed by the body over several months while stimulating collagen production and elastin fiber regeneration. This process gives you amazing tighter more volumized skin without much downtime if any. 

  We can place threads in many areas of the face to lift sagging skin, smooth lines, and wrinkles, and treat acne scars.

Dr. Pam Kulback loves educating her patients prior to performing any procedure. Part of achieving a great outcome is choosing the right treatment and setting realistic expectations with the patients, she says. 

What are PDO Threads? 

PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are absorbable sutures that were initially developed for use in cardiac surgery procedures. PDO threads have received FDA clearance for soft tissue approximation and are now recognized as a safe, minimally-invasive alternative to traditional aesthetic procedures such as full face, jaw, marionette lines, brow, and neck-lifts. 

PDO Threads help to stimulate collagen production which tightens, smooths and plumps the aging (re-volumizes) skin. There are two types of threads, lifting threads for sagging skin to give a more immediate effect and smooth threads for stimulating collagen production to tighten the skin and bring new blood flow to an area. The threads are also ideal for fine lines and acne scars. Once inserted into the sub-dermal layer of the skin, the threads provide an instant “lift” of the surrounding skin, and stimulate endogenous collagen production to improve skin texture, fine lines and the function of elastin, the main protein constituent of elastic connective tissue in the skin.

 A special numbing cream is placed on the skin and then additional anesthesia is used if needed. The threads are placed in the area that is in need of being treated by placing them under the dermis. The thread is automatically released when the needle is removed.

No Cuts or incisions. 

PDO threading involves using needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. The PDO thread remains under the skin and disolves in time producing longlasting results. 

How Do PDO Threads Work?

As mentioned above lifting threads are used for sagging skin to pull the skin back for a immediate effect. Smooth threads stimulate collagen production and help to tighten the skin and bring new blood flow to an area. They give fantastic definition to the lips and aid in revolumization. Both use fully absorbable threads that stimulate your own natural collagen production and give you glowing skin as they are absorbed over 4 to 6 months with effects that last 12 to 24 months. These can be used with dermal fillers.

How Soon Will I See Results?

You will see immediate results with both type of threads with continued lifting, tightening, and improvement in skin texture for 4-6 months.

How Much Downtime Do I Have With this Procedure?

With the smooth threads there is no downtime. The lifting threads do cause some bruising that can be decreased with medication. Makeup can be applied after a couple of days.
