PDO Thread Lift

The PDO Thread Lift is the most effective non-surgical procedure to lift and tighten skin on your face, neck and throughout the body. The effects of gravity become more noticeable in our face and neck as we age, we lose facial fat, our skin becomes looser and the collagen in our skin becomes less pronounced. PDO Threads redefine facial contours and induces collagen production in those areas in a process that is quick, immediately visible and the effects can last between 2 -3 years.

Unlike surgery that just shifts skin, PDO Threads actually stimulate the skin to produce new collagen and blood vessels to improve skin microcirculation, giving you a more natural, long-lasting effect with firmer, smoother skin.  PDO Thread Lift can also be performed on virtually any part of the body, including, hands, knees, upper arms, and stomach.

How it Works

The PDO Thread Lift is a minimally invasive procedure that using just local anesthesia to numb the treatment area. The threads used are made from Polydioxanone (PDO) that are inserted into the deeper layers of the skin and anchor and lift the skin upwards. These threads have 3 effects, namely;

  • instantaneous and visible lifting and tightening of skin
  • cellular renewal due to the collagen stimulation
  • neovascularisation that improves skin texture, fine lines, and elasticity

The PDO Threads will be absorbed into your body in about 6 months after the procedure and the lifted contours will stay for about 3 – 6 months thereafter due to the cellular rejuvenation effects of the procedure. This cellular rejuvenation is due to skin cells been stimulated to produce new collagen and new blood vessels that in turn improve skin microcirculation.

Depending on the areas and the number of areas treated, the procedure can take anywhere between 30 – 60 minutes. The procedure provides minimal discomfort to the patient and they are often able to resume their regular schedule within a day or two, though it is advised to reframe from any strenuous activity for at least 1 month.

Who Should Get A PDO Thread Lift?

PDO Thread Lifts are great for anyone looking for an effective facial lifting and tightening treatment without the long downtime of surgery. The procedure requires being comfortable going under local anesthesia and having needles injected in the necessary areas while still awake.

Complications and Possible Side Effects

Compared to a traditional surgical facelift, the side effects for PDO Thread Lifts are relatively mild. Like any treatment that utilizes needles, mild bruising and swelling may occur and is usually gone within 3 – 5 days after the procedure. Temporary mild dimpling off the skin might also occur but only lasts a few days.
