Long-Lasting Collagen Restoration at Turtle Creek

Wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and gaunt cheeks can make you look older and more tired than you feel. The loss of collagen is the primary reason for fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. As such, restoring your skin’s collagen reserves allows you to restore facial volume and reverse the signs of aging. A PDO thread lift in Turtle Creek allows you to naturally and effectively restore your collagen reserves without surgeries or downtime. The results are smoother, softer, fuller, and more youthful skin.

What is a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical procedure performed using polydioxanone, a biocompatible and biodegradable material generally used as a surgical suture. When inserted underneath your facial tissues, PDO threads lift your facial skin to make you look more youthful. Furthermore, polydioxanone also encourages your body to produce new collagen fibers, which, in turn, makes your skin look fuller and tighter. As such, the PDO thread lift smoothens the fine lines and wrinkles to make your complexion more radiant.

What are the types of PDO threads?

Barbed Threads

Barbed threads are PDO threads with tiny barbs that facilitate a dramatic lifting for the sagging skin in the cheeks. As such, barbed threads provide instantaneous and dramatic results, with continued improvements due to collagen production.

Smooth Threads

Smooth threads are PDO threads without barbs, so they’re inserted underneath the facial skin in a grid-like pattern to provide an instant lift. Smooth threads also encourage collagen production, but they’re not as effective at providing instant results.

The advantages of PDO thread lifts:

  • Non-surgical treatment
  • Painless procedure
  • No anesthesia
  • Encourage collagen production
  • Improve skin tone
  • No scars
  • Improve self-confidence
  • No downtime

Am I a good candidate for a PDO thread lift?

You’re a good candidate for a PDO thread lift if you want dramatic results and facial rejuvenation without surgeries and downtime. However, you must have realistic expectations from the procedure and generally good physical and mental health. Our cosmetic providers will review your medical history to ensure you’re a suitable candidate for a PDO thread lift in Turtle Creek.

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.
