Restoring Your Youth

The use of PDO Threading in aesthetics helps to restore the natural “V-shape” of the face. Over time, the effects of aging and gravity tend to invert the ideal “V-shape,” which can decrease the youthfulness of the face. By placing threads in the tissues of the face, the areas regain support and are lifted in the appropriate direction. Over time the PDO Threads will dissolve and then stimulate neocollagenesis, or the creation of new collagen. Threading is not limited to the face, and when used on the body or in the neck, a smoothing effect can be created to help skin laxity and looseness appear less severe.

What are PDO Threads and How do they work?

PDO Threads are made of an absorbable suture material called PDO (polydioxanone). This type of suture is frequently used in cardiac surgery and is approved by the FDA for uses in the body and in aesthetics. PDO Threads use hypodermic needles that have the PDO thread preloaded into the hollow portion of the needle. Upon insertion into the tissue, the thread is placed beneath the surface of the skin to resuspend the tissue, causing a lifting effect. Over the course of 4 to 6 months, the body will absorb the PDO threads and collagen will begin to reproduce in that area. Threading is excellent for people who are looking to bring back a youthful appearance that is subtle and natural-looking.

How Do I Prepare for a PDO Thread Lift?

A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that will require preparation in order to ensure safety and high-quality results. You may need to avoid drinking alcohol and smoking for at least five days before your procedure.

You will need to avoid anti-inflammatory drugs like Advil, ibuprofen, and aspirin. You may also have to refrain from taking omega-3 supplements and green tea. Avoiding these will help prevent increased bleeding or bruising during and after a PDO thread lift.

How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last?

A PDO thread lift session can last up to 18 months. Firming of skin should be seen right away and will improve more in the first six months as new collagen forms.

Results can vary from person to person and will last depending on the lifestyle habits and environmental factors that can affect your skin. It is best to avoid prolonged sun exposure and smoking to preserve the benefits of a PDO thread lift.
