By January 5, 2022No Comments

What are PDO threads?

PDO (or polydioxanone) threads are dissolvable sutures that have been used for many years in cardiac surgeries and other medical procedures. There are different types of PDO threads – floating, non-barbed, and barbed; the threads also have different strengths, thicknesses, and length. Before any treatment at Allure Esthetic Plastic Surgery, your facial skin will be evaluated, and a plan created for your custom PDO thread lift.

What are the benefits of a PDO thread lift?

This procedure produces a remarkably natural level of facial rejuvenation, and has added benefits:

  • The threads trigger natural collagen production for a long-term enhancement of skin quality
  • Restores sagging skin tissue to its original location for a natural, youthful look
  • Tightens skin by causing fat tissue to contract around the threads
  • The threads are biocompatible and absorbed over time

What is a PDO thread lift like?

This age-defying procedure involves injecting PDO threads at several layers beneath your skin. When the threads have been properly placed, they are carefully manipulated to gently restore loose facial skin to its former youthful look.

What is recovery like after treatment?

You may experience slight swelling, redness, and soreness which disappears within a day or two. You will also need to avoid rubbing your face with any pressure during the first week after your treatment to allow the threads time to settle; you won’t feel them once they have settled in place. Even though the threads typically dissolve in six months, they continue doing their work for another three to six months more.

One of the biggest benefits of a PDO thread lift is the minimal recovery time it offers versus a traditional facelift. You will see immediate results from a PDO thread lift.
