PDO Threads

What Are PDO Threads?

PDO Threads are a type of non-invasive and non-surgical cosmetic treatment that helps reverse the visible signs of aging on the face and neck. PDO stands for polydioxanone, which is a common chemical compound that has been used in surgical settings, specifically the suturing of incisions, for years. Now, polydioxanone has found a new life in mint thread lift treatments that perfect the appearance of skin and restore a youthful visage.

What Does a Thread Lift Treat?

A thread lift is sometimes called a non-surgical facelift, so it’s purpose is pretty clear; the primary goal of a PDO thread lift is to lift the skin into a higher, tighter, more youthful position. As it is, a thread lift can treat a variety of age-related skin concerns, such as:

  • Lax or sagging skin
  • Nasolabial lines
  • Expression lines
  • Hollowness in the cheeks
  • Loose jowls

 

How Do PDO Threads and Thread Lifts  Work?

Thread lifts have two goals for treatment; the first is to physically lift and tighten skin, and the second is to encourage the body’s own healing to prolong results. Thread lifts done with polydioxanone accomplish this by first pulling the skin into higher, more taut positions.

Once in place, the PDO thread then has chemical reactions within the sub-dermal tissues of your skin to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Over time, the threads are fully absorbed into the body.

A thread lift is a fairly straightforward treatment that takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete each treatment appointment.

How Soon Can You See Results?

The results of this treatment are immediate. On the same day as your treatment, you will notice that your skin has fewer fine lines and wrinkles, and you will have a more youthful-looking visage. The results of this treatment will continue to improve as the polydioxanone threads interact with your body’s natural regenerative abilities to increase latent amounts of skin-supporting proteins and acids in the skin.
