PDO (polydioxanone) threads are a safe and effective way to help smooth wrinkles, treat sagging skin, and improve the contours of the face. This treatment is non-surgical, and results can be seen immediately. Threads give your skin an instant lift, and contract fat tissue to tighten your skin. PDO threads promote collagen production and renew your skin.
PDO threads are blunt tip needles that are inserted into the skin around the target areas of concern. Once these needs are inserted, they anchor the skin and help to lift it upwards. The excess thread is cut off and left under the skin. Threads last between six to nine months and the life of a thread depends on each individual’s metabolism.
After your treatment some results are seen immediately. These include skin lifting and contouring. Some patients notice their skin feels and looks tighter immediately after the treatment. After one or two months the results will be visible, and this varies for each patient. It all depends on how fast your body produces new collagen.
After your first treatment we advise clients return six to nine months afterwards to evaluate your skin and determine if a follow-up treatment is needed. Threads can last for years, and some patients do not need another treatment for up to three years.
If you have pigmentation issues, lines, or wrinkles you would be a good candidate for a PDO thread lift. PDO thread lifts are great for patients seeking an instant facial lift that is non-surgical.
