What are PDO Threads?
PDO threads are a versatile cosmetic tool that are placed beneath the skin’s surface to lift, rejuvenate and volumize the skin. PDO threads are made from a safe, absorbable and biocompatible material. Upon placement into the skin, they lift and tighten the skin tissue into a more youthful position. Over time, these threads are gradually absorbed by the body, a process that also stimulates collagen production in the skin. As these threads are absorbed, the body will replace them with natural collagen, extending the duration of your results while preserving a natural look.
What are the Benefits of PDO Threads?
The PDO threads can be used to treat nearly any area of the face where a patient might desire lifted, tightened skin including:
- Forehead wrinkles and lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Sagging jawline or jowls
- Drooping cheeks
- Chin and neck
How are PDO Threads Administered?
Before treatment begins, a local anesthetic will be administered to the treatment area. This will numb the skin to minimize any discomfort that may occur during treatment. Once the skin is numbed, the PDO threads are inserted into the skin using a needle. The skin is immediately lifted and tightened as the PDO threads are placed. Once the desired results are achieved, any excess threading will be removed to produce a smooth and natural appearance. The PDO thread treatment takes about one hour to perform. After receiving PDO threads, you may experience some minor sensitivity, swelling or redness in the treatment area. However, these side effects should fade within a few weeks. Fortunately, there is very little downtime required after your PDO threads are inserted. You will be able to resume most normal activities immediately after your appointment, and we will provide you with further instruction on caring for your skin during the days following your treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from PDO Threads?
Despite some minor side effects, you will notice results immediately after treatment as your skin will be visibly tighter. These results may change slightly as the body adapts to the PDO threads, with final results becoming visible a month or two after your treatment. The results from a PDO thread lift can last anywhere from one to two years or longer, depending on your particular treatment.
