Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are medical-grade threads. Although PDO thread lifts are a revolutionary new treatment in the world of aesthetics. PDO threads themselves have been used safely for decades for various medical applications. Research has confirmed that PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, whilst enhancing the body’s reaction to improve the blood flow to the area stimulating neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen in the skin).
PDO threads provide both instant and progressive results. PDO threads yield instant results through a mechanical lift, as well as skin tightening through the contraction of fat tissue. Then as PDO our absorbed, approximately 4-6 months, they promote collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles, and more elastic skin.
When you come in for a thread lift treatment, we’ll begin by cleansing and numbing the treatment area. We also may lightly mark the area of concern so that we’ll have a reference point during your session. The threads are actually trails of polydioxanone, a suture material, which are created as the hypodermic needle slides along just under the surface of the skin, because the treatment area will have been numbed, discomfort is minimized. Treatment length depends on how many areas are being treated, however 1-1.5hrs is the average treatment length.
This treatment does not involve a significant amount of downtime. You’ll be able to get right back to work after your treatment. The only real aftercare requirement is that you refrain from manipulating or overstretching the treatment area for roughly 2-4 weeks after your treatment.
Patients may instantly notice PDO thread lift following their procedure, but complete results and improvements to skin firmness, volume, and rejuvenation will seen approximately 3–4 weeks post-procedure. Results vary from patient to patient, but most enjoy their new look for as long as 18 months.
