What Are PDO Threads, and How Can They Transform My Appearance?

What Are PDO Threads, and How Can They Transform My Appearance?

Facelift surgery isn’t the only way to tighten sagging skin and give you your desired refreshed appearance.

Do you want to tighten loose, sagging skin? Are you feeling self-conscious about crow’s feet or wrinkles? PDO thread lifts are just one nonsurgical anti-aging procedure that can enhance your beauty and give you a more youthful look without the pain, expense, and prolonged recovery time of surgery.

What are PDO threads? This quick and minimally invasive treatment delivers an instant tightening effect and can boost collagen and elastin production for up to 36 months. Read on to learn more, then call (954) 524-2300 to schedule a complimentary consultation to find out whether a PDO thread lift is right for you.

What Are PDO Threads?

PDO threads are thin sutures (stitches) we place under your skin and then gently pull back to produce a lifting and tightening effect, improve neck and jawline contouring, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

The threads also create minor skin damage to trigger your body’s natural healing response, promoting collagen and elastin production and gradually improving skin tone and firmness.

PDO thread lifts are FDA-approved for safety and efficacy. They are also simpler, quicker, less invasive, and more affordable than old-school surgical facelifts.

There are different types of PDO threads:

  • Mono Threads, which help plump and volumize the skin.
  • Screw Threads, which volumize and additionally promote skin tightening.
  • Barbed Threads, which lift the skin.

All three types of PDO threads boost collagen production. Collagen naturally decreases as we age, leading to thin, sagging skin. With a PDO thread lift, you can turn back the clock and promote healthy collagen growth for supple, youthful-looking skin.

What Can You Expect During Your Appointment?

The treatment is minimally invasive. We use an ultra-thin needle to create a tiny hole through which we insert the threads. Then, we pull them back to lift and tighten your skin and cut off the excess threads. Each skin section can get anywhere between one and 15 threads. You should recover fully within 24 hours.

What Can a Thread Lift Do for My Skin?

PDO thread lifts are incredibly versatile: You can use them almost anywhere on your body you want a boost, like your eyebrows, cheeks, jawline, nose, neck, chest, stomach, and even knees. PDO threads offer several benefits, including:

  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Instantly lifts skin to eliminate crow’s feet and marionette lines
  • Tighten loose or sagging skin
  • Boost collagen production
  • Contour your face

How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last?

The threads are absorbable and dissolve in six to nine months, leaving you with younger, healthier-looking skin. The effect of the thread lift should last between 12 and 36 months. We recommend that you do maintenance procedures at least every 18 months.

Is PDO Threading Painful?

While you may experience mild discomfort, PDO threading isn’t painful. Some soreness is common but typically fades within 24 to 48 hours after the procedure. Depending on the thread placement, you may also experience minimal bruising.

To minimize discomfort, we’ll apply a topical numbing agent and local anesthetic to the treatment site before the procedure. The needles we use are ultra-fine so that you won’t experience any pain, but we offer soothing sedation upon request to keep you fully relaxed and comfortable. Because PDO threads are thin, you won’t feel them under your skin.

What Is the Best Age for a PDO Thread Lift?

You may be an ideal candidate for a PDO thread lift if you are in your late 30s to early 50s and your skin shows mild to moderate signs of aging.

The procedure may not be a good fit if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, show more severe signs of aging or have excessive sagging and loose skin. That said, a thread lift can be an alternative to a conventional facelift if you are 55 or older and can’t get surgery.
