About PDO Threads

Numerous factors contribute to the onset of facial wrinkles, fine lines, and creases, such as aging, environmental damage, sun damage, and much more. However, most of the age-related changes on your face can be traced back to the loss of volume, collagen, and elastin. We use barbed or smooth PDO threads to restore your facial volume and stimulate collagen production without relying on complex facelift surgeries.

What is PDO Thread Lift?

PDO thread lift is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that involves the careful insertion of PDO threads into targeted areas of the face. Polydioxanone (PDO) is a synthetic and biocompatible material often used for surgical sutures because it facilitates natural collagen production. The PDO threads are carefully inserted underneath targeted facial tissues to give you an instant facelift. Meanwhile, PDO threads also stimulate collagen production to reverse the signs of aging.

Types of PDO Threads

Barbed Threads

Barbed PDO threads contain tiny barbs that can lift sagging skin tissues more effectively. They provide dramatic and instant results that gradually improve over several months as new collagen fibers are produced.

Smooth Threads

Smooth PDO threads don’t contain any barbs, so they’re inserted in a grid-like pattern underneath the skin. They provide natural improvements in skin tone and firmness by stimulating collagen production.

Side Effects of PDO Thread Lift

PDO thread lift is a simple, in-office procedure that doesn’t involve harsh side effects or complications. You may experience mild post-treatment swelling, redness, and bruising around the treatment areas for a few days. You can apply ice packs to reduce swelling and bruising. You should avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for around 3 days. But you can resume most of your normal activities and work immediately.

PDO Thread Lift Results

PDO thread lift produces instant results. Your skin will look smoother, fuller, and more youthful when you walk out of the medical spa. However, the results will gradually improve over several weeks and months as your body produces new collagen fibers. The PDO threads will gradually dissolve after 9 months, but the results will remain because of the presence of new collagen fibers underneath your skin.
