PDO (Polydioxanone) Threading is a popular non-surgical approach to create a tighter, lifted, more youthful appearance. The procedure uses absorbable surgical suture threads, traditionally used in cardiothoracic surgery, to produce immediate subtle lifting results by manipulating and repositioning the sagging skin. In addition, PDO Threads can also stimulate collagen production resulting in restored volume loss. These immediate and long-term effects have sparked a revolution in anti-aging skin treatment.
PDO threading is an excellent option for anyone who is looking for a non-invasive skin treatment method to combat sagging and volume loss. PDO stands for polydioxanone which is the synthetic material of which the threads are made. Pro-Nox™ Sedation is administered, as well as, topical numbing to aid in pain management. PDO Threads are then injected to create a controlled inflammatory response. This procedure stimulates collagen production which combats volume loss, by creating a more full, toned, and lifted youthful appearance.
Reclaim Your Natural Radiance
Plastic surgery typically conjures up thoughts of general anesthesia, painful side effects, a lengthy recovery period, and sometimes, unnatural results. We believe that’s a price you shouldn’t have to pay, which is why we offer the PDO thread lift for an effective, non-invasive approach. The most popular benefits to PDO Threads are:
- No surgical incisions
- Significantly less recovery time (days to weeks versus weeks to months)
- Manageable discomfort
- Often, less bruising and swelling than traditional surgery
- Natural, subtle changes in appearance over time
A Total Skin Lifting Solution
One of the main appeals of the PDO lift is its versatility. PDO Threads can be used to address all problem areas of the face and body that need lifting or a refreshed appearance. The most popular facial treatment areas are:
- Cheeks (mid-face)
- Sagging eyebrows
- Crow’s feet
- Under eye area (tear troughs)
- Upper Neck
- Around the mouth (vermillion border)
- Nasolabial folds (laugh or smile lines)
Some of the areas that can be addressed for the body are the arms, breasts, abdomen, butt, and knees.
Results That Look Natural
After the PDO threading is completed, some clients can immediately experience a refreshed, renewed, and regenerated look. The renewed collagen synthesis continues for months, which provides an ongoing improved appearance.
Look Your Best for Months
The full effects are noticeable approximately three to six months after the procedure and can last from six to eighteen months. For our clients who want to maximize their new look, it is advised that they complete additional maintenance six to twelve months after their initial PDO procedure to combat the loss of collagen due to the natural aging process. These additional maintenance procedures are often not as extensive as the initial treatment because they are focused on specific areas that need an extra boost to maintain your youthful appearance.
