Most people believe they have two sets of options when it comes to reversing the signs of aging on the face — facelift surgery and injectables. Facelifts are effective at reversing the signs of aging, but they involve considerable downtime. Injectables, such as Botox and dermal fillers, provide instant results with a few injections, but they’re also extremely temporary. PDO thread lifts strike the right balance — they encourage collagen production, reverse the signs of aging, and ensure long-lasting results without downtime or complications.  

What is a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical procedure wherein specialized biocompatible sutures are inserted underneath your facial tissues. The procedure is performed using polydioxanone, a synthetic and biocompatible compound generally used during surgeries. When inserted underneath your facial tissues, PDO threads give your skin an instant lift while facilitating collagen production.

Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm, smooth, supple, and voluminous. The age-related loss of collagen is the primary factor behind the onset of wrinkles and skin laxity. The loss of collagen makes your face look old, gaunt, and tired. As such, PDO thread lifts restore your skin’s collagen reserves to reverse the signs of aging.

What are the types of PDO threads?

Barbed Threads

Barbed threads are PDO threads with tiny barbs. They provide dramatic and instantaneous results because the barbs can latch onto your skin tissues to give you an instant lift. They also encourage collagen production.

Smooth Threads

Smooth threads are PDO threads without any barbs, so they have to be inserted underneath the facial tissues in a criss-cross pattern. They also provide instant results, but they’re more effective at collagen production over an extended period.

The advantages of PDO thread lifts:

  • Non-surgical and non-invasive treatment
  • Immediately lift facial skin tissues
  • Reverse the signs of aging
  • Encourage natural collagen production
  • Improve overall skin tone and texture
  • No harsh side effects or scars
  • Quick and effective procedure
  • Resume daily activities immediately

Am I a good candidate for a PDO thread lift?

You’re a good candidate for a PDO thread lift if you want dramatic and natural anti-aging results without facelift surgery. If you have fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, nasolabial folds, and jowls, you can consider a PDO thread lift. However, to qualify for the procedure, you must be in generally good physical and mental health and have realistic expectations. The cosmetic provider will review your medical history to ensure you’re a good candidate for a PDO thread lift

What to expect from PDO thread lifts?

During the PDO thread lift, the cosmetic provider will mark the treatment areas on your face and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. The barbed or smooth threads will be inserted underneath your facial tissues in a grid-like pattern to suspend your facial skin tissues. This will give your facial skin an instant lift, making you look younger. The procedure concludes within an hour, following which you can resume your daily activities and work. The results will be instantly visible, with gradual improvements over several weeks.
