Most threads that I use are for what I call a mini facelift. I love to use PDO threads to structure your face and bring back a youthful look.
Lift and tighten sagging skin through a nonsurgical facelift!
The aging process and what it does to our skin can really be the pits. To add insult to injury, factor in a person’s genetics, poor lifestyle habits, certain health conditions, and/or unprotected sun exposure and it can lead to some major skin setbacks. But not to worry, because there are options out there to help you reclaim a tighter, more youthful appearance. PDO threads are a particular favorite of ours for helping clients achieve instant, subtle lifting with little to no downtime involved.
Although threads have been used for several decades for various other medical applications (such as suturing surgical incisions), using them as a means to provide noticeable facial tightening and skin rejuvenation is a somewhat recent practice. The use of threads in this manner has since been perfected to provide even safer, more effective anti-aging outcomes for people looking to turn back the clock on sagging skin.
How do PDO threads work?
PDO threads are barbed, hair-thin threads strategically inserted into varying depths in your skin and gently pulled to provide a tightening effect. Threads not only provide instant lifting, but they also kick your natural collagen production into high gear to rejuvenate your skin at a cellular level. That all leads to fewer wrinkles and increased elasticity for up to two years for most patients.
Are PDO threads safe?
PDO threads are FDA-cleared for safety and have a much lower risk of complications than other more invasive lifting procedures. There’s also less risk of scarring, severe bruising, or bleeding with PDO threads.
Am I a candidate for PDO thread lift?
If you’re in generally good health and tired of noticing fine lines, wrinkles, and/or mild to moderate skin laxity staring back at you in the mirror, then threads may be right up your alley. Ideal candidates tend to be people between 30 and 65 who desire subtle, instant lifting of the face but aren’t yet ready or don’t want to commit to getting facelift surgery.
Which areas are typically treated with PDO threads?
PDO threads are crazy versatile and can be used to tackle signs of aging in the following common areas:
- Crow’s feet
- Undereye area
- Eyebrow area (fox-eye trend)
- Jaw line
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
What is the PDO thread lift procedure like?
For starters, we’ll apply a topical numbing agent and local anesthetic in the treatment area to ensure you’re nice and comfy during your procedure. And just so you know, the needle used during a PDO thread lift is so fine that any discomfort is rare. Your thread expert, Iani Silveira, MSN, FNP-BC, CPN, will carefully insert the threads via cannulas (blunt-tipped needles) and gently pull them to lift your skin upwards. The barbs on the threads then anchor them in place and the excess threads are cut off. The whole procedure is done in only about 15-30 minutes, so you’ll be on your way in a flash.
Will I need any downtime after a PDO thread treatment?
A big plus with PDO threads (in addition, of course, to the awesome facial rejuvenation) is that there is minimal recovery time needed after treatment. Most people return to their normal routine the next day after treatment. Threads one day, beach the next? It’s possible! Just know that common side effects include minor inflammation and bruising, but these typically resolve within a week.
What results can I expect from PDO threads?
The lifting effects from PDO threads are noticeable immediately after treatment. But it gets better! Full results are typically experienced within one to two months following treatment as collagen production is boosted. That can depend on your age, however, as it’s one of the leading factors in how fast your body produces new collagen. Most patients’ threads dissolve in about six to nine months after injection but results often last up to two years!
