PDO Thread Lifts to Reverse the Signs of Aging in Frisco, TX

Collagen is an important protein that makes your skin look firm, taut, and youthful. It holds your skin upright against the force of gravity, giving your face structure and youthful tightness. However, as you grow older, your body’s collagen reserves are gradually depleted, leading to sagging skin, loss of elasticity, wrinkles, fine lines, and facial creases. PDO thread lifts facilitate natural collagen production to reverse the signs of aging, making you look youthful and more attractive.

How does a PDO thread lift work?

A PDO thread lift involves inserting polydioxanone threads underneath the facial skin to lift the sagging skin tissues. Polydioxanone is a biocompatible and biodegradable material that gradually dissolves and encourages collagen production. Inserting PDO threads under the skin provides two significant benefits — immediate lifting and long-term collagen production. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers to restore your skin’s collagen reserves, which makes your face look firm, taut, and youthful.

What are the types of PDO threads?

Barbed Threads

Barbed threads contain tiny barbs that lift your sagging skin tissues, providing instant and dramatic results. They also encourage collagen production to ensure long-lasting results.

Smooth Threads

Smooth threads don’t contain any barbs, so they’re placed in a mesh-like pattern underneath the skin to activate collagen production. They also encourage collagen restoration to reverse the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and facial creases.

The advantages of PDO thread lifts:

  • No surgeries or incisions
  • No anesthesia
  • Immediate lifting
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Long-lasting collagen restoration
  • Restore midface volume
  • No scars
  • No downtime

What happens during PDO thread lifts?

Your PDO thread lift in Frisco starts with a personalized consultation with our cosmetic providers. They examine your facial skin, discuss your goals, and review your medical history to ensure you’re a suitable candidate. If so, your facial skin is cleansed, a numbing gel is applied to ensure comfort, and the treatment areas are marked using a surgical pen.

After preparing your face, the cosmetic provider inserts the chosen barbed or smooth threads underneath the facial tissues. The PDO threads are inserted in a specific pattern to provide an instant lift while encouraging collagen production. The entire procedure concludes within an hour, following which you can resume your daily activities.

Are there any side effects of PDO thread lifts?

PDO thread lifts are completely safe, but you may experience mild post-treatment redness, swelling, and bruising. The side effects dissipate in a few days, but you should avoid strenuous activities until then. You can also use ice packs or over-the-counter medications to reduce swelling and bruising.
