PDO Threads, also known as a thread lift, are a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes dissolvable sutures to tighten and lift the skin. The sutures interact with the skin by triggering cells in the body called fibroblasts, leading to collagen production. Natural collagen production slows as a person ages, often resulting in the appearance of wrinkles, lines, or loose, sagging skin. The stimulation of new collagen beneath the skin’s surface helps to plump the skin in the area, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, diminishing visible acne scars, and improving the patient’s overall skin tone.
What is a PDO Threads appointment like?
PDO Threads typically take about 45 minutes to complete and can be safely and effectively performed in many areas of the face, including the delicate tissue around the eyes and mouth. PDO Threads are considered to be tolerable and less painful compared to more invasive surgeries.
What is recovery from PDO Threads like?
Recovery from PDO Threads is very minimal compared to more invasive procedures such as a Face Lift. Patients can typically resume their regular activities shortly after treatment. However, to ensure the proper settling of the threads, it is advisable to avoid intense physical activity or facial massages for a few days.
How long do PDO Threads last?
The results of PDO Threads can vary based on several factors including the type of thread used or the treatment area. Generally patients can expect results to last anywhere from six to twelve months.
