PDO Thread Lift

PDO Thread Lift

What is a PDO Thread Lift?

This is an exciting new procedure that is a non-surgical face, neck and body lift using surgical threads that are reabsorbed by the body over several months while stimulating new collagen production. This process gives you amazing skin!

What Areas of the Body can be Treated and What Conditions do They Treat?

– Face: we place threads in many areas of the face to lift sagging skin, smooth lines and wrinkles, and treat acne scars. We place them in:

  • Cheek
  • Nasolabial Lines (smile lines)
  • Lip Border
  • Lines Above Lips (smoker’s lines)
  • Marionnette Lines (to the side of and down from the lips)
  • Sagging Skin in Chin Area and Jowls

What Are PDO Threads?

They are absorbable suture threads, like the type used in surgery, that have been placed in sterile needles. When released into the skin they lift the skin and stimulate collagen production. 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.

What is the Procedure for This Treatment?

A special numbing cream is place on the skin and then additional skin anesthesia is used to numb the skin. The threads are placed in the area that needs lifted or treated by placing them under the dermis and the thread is automatically released when the needle is removed.

No Cuts or incisions. Purely Injections!

PDO threading involves using needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. Simply insert the whole needle in the interstitial tissue at subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin & pull the needle out. The PDO thread remains under the skin.

How Do PDO Threads work?

Lifting threads are used for sagging skin to pull the skin back and give a more immediate effect. Smooth threads stimulate collagen production to tighten the skin and bring new blood flow to an area. They give fantastic definition to the lips. 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.
