PDO Thread Lifts in Nashville

The appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity can be disconcerting. Sagging skin, forehead lines, and nasolabial folds can appear as early as in your 20s, and their appearance is often followed by feelings of self-consciousness. Most signs of aging appear because of the gradual loss of collagen, a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm and taut. Genesis Lifestyle Medicine provides PDO thread lifts to encourage collagen production and reverse the signs of aging, making you look more youthful.

What is a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical procedure wherein biocompatible and biodegradable threads are inserted underneath your facial tissues in specific patterns. There are two goals — lifting the sagging facial skin tissues and encouraging collagen production. When inserted underneath facial tissues, the PDO threads give your facial skin an instant lift while boosting collagen production to reverse the signs of aging. The results are smoother, fuller, and more youthful skin without surgeries, anesthesia, or downtime.

How does a PDO thread lift work?

PDO thread lifts work by lifting your sagging skin tissues, making your facial skin look smoother, fuller, and tighter. The biocompatible threads are inserted underneath the facial skin in a specific pattern that suspends the sagging skin tissues, thus restoring facial volume. Furthermore, over time, the polydioxanone threads encourage the natural production of collagen, a fibrous protein that restores your skin’s firmness and tightness. The results gradually improve over several weeks and months.

What are the types of PDO threads?

Barbed Threads

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

Smooth Threads

Smooth threads don’t contain barbs, so they’re inserted in a grid-like pattern to lift the facial skin. The immediate results are minimal, but they encourage collagen production for long-lasting results.

Am I a suitable candidate for a PDO thread lift?

You’re a suitable candidate for a PDO thread lift if you want dramatic facial lifting results without surgeries, incisions, or downtime. However, you should be generally healthy (physically and mentally) and have realistic expectations from the procedure. Our cosmetic providers in Nashville will review your medical history to ensure you’re a suitable candidate.

What to expect from PDO thread lifts

During your PDO thread lift, our cosmetic providers will carefully mark the treatment areas on your face to guide the threads. Your facial skin will be numbed with an anesthetic gel to ensure comfort. The chosen PDO threads — barbed or smooth — will be interred underneath the facial skin in the appropriate pattern and then cut off at the end. The sutures will lift your facial skin, making your face look fuller and smoother.

When will I see the results?

You may experience mild post-treatment redness, swelling, irritation, and bruising after the PDO thread lift. However, you can manage the side effects with over-the-counter pain medications, such as Tylenol, and ice packs. The results will be instantly visible, with gradual improvements over several weeks as your body produces collagen. The PDO threads will dissolve within 9 months.
