What happens during PDO thread lifts?
During the PDO thread lift, the cosmetic provider will apply an anesthetic gel on your skin to ensure comfort. The treatment areas will be marked to guide the procedure. And finally, the cosmetic provider will insert the chosen PDO threads under the facial skin to lift your sagging skin, making your skin look firm, taut, and youthful. The procedure concludes within an hour, following which you can resume your daily activities.
What happens after the PDO thread lifts?
The PDO thread lift procedure doesn’t involve downtime, but you may experience mild redness, swelling, discomfort, and bruising around the treatment areas. You can minimize swelling and bruising with ice packs and over-the-counter medications, such as Tylenol. The results are instantly visible, with continued improvements for 2 months after the procedure. The PDO threads dissolve after about 9 months.
