The PDO thread lift is one of the most effective and alternative ways to achieve facial rejuvenation without the downtime of a surgical procedure. This minimally invasive procedure is designed to anchor the underlying tissue using an innovative molded dissolvable thread to provide lift to sagging tissue. The threads deliver immediate results with a visible lift and continue to provide recruitment of collagen to the tissues. The combination of increased collagen production and suspension of skin laxity allow for a more youthful appearance that slows down and prevents rapid signs of aging.
Commonly placed in the areas of the face, including the cheeks, jowls, brows and neck, PDO threads deliver the ability to contour facial structures as well as smooth skin texture. Both lifting and smooth threads may be used in combination to achieve your best aesthetic look without surgery. Smooth threads may also be placed in other areas of the body for specific skin laxity in order to improve tightening through the stimulation of collagen to the isolated region of concern.
Our practice uses the only double FDA approved PDO threads to deliver the safe and best results possible to our clients. PDO is an absorbable polydioxanone suture that has been used for years during orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery to close wounds. Over time, the suture is absorbed by the body through hydrolysis and therefore results in minimal tissue reaction.
Every client has different concerns or needs and results vary. Typical results may be visible for up to 12-18 months. To learn more about this minimally invasive treatment and determine if PDO thread lifting is beneficial for you, we invite you to schedule a consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals.
Look good, feel good and feel confident!
