A PDO thread lift is a revolutionary new treatment in the world of aesthetics, but PDO threads themselves have been used safely for decades for various applications, like treating suturing incisions after medical procedures.
First, it mechanically results in instant skin lifting. Second, it contracts fat tissue to result in instant skin tightening. Third, it promotes 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.
Before treatment starts, we will apply a topical numbing agent and local anaesthetic to the treatment site. The needle used during this treatment is so fine it will not cause any pain. However, we provide anaesthesia to ensure you feel no discomfort during the treatment.
The PDO threads are inserted via blunt tip needles, called cannulas, or sharp-tipped needles. Once inserted into the appropriate layer of skin, they act as anchors as the skin is lifted upwards. Then, the excess threads are cut off.
There are several types of PDO threads, and each serves its own unique purpose. Depending on your aesthetic goals, we may use one or many thread types during your anti-aging treatment.
There are not a lot of special after-care requirements to this treatment. However, you should hold off on any dental treatments for the first two weeks after your PDO thread lift. Holding your mouth open for an excessive period of time can affect the results of your treatment. Moreover, you’ll want to sleep on your back for the first couple of weeks. This ensures you don’t put too much pressure on one side of your face.
Because a PDO thread lift is so versatile, it can treat virtually any area of the face. These include the:
- Jaw line
- Naso jugal folds
- Nasolabial folds
- Crow’s feet
- Undereye area
- Marionette lines
The cheeks and the lower face/neck region are the most commonly treated. The cheeks and lower face are great regions to treat because they lend themselves so well to synergistic skin lifting treatments like HIFU.
How long the PDO threads last depends on a number of factors, including the thickness of the threads, the quality of the threads and your body’s rate of metabolism. However, most of our clients find that the threads have dissolved within six to nine months. The final results of your PDO thread lift will be seen within one to two months of your treatment. How long it takes you personally depends a lot on your age. Your age is one of the leading factors in how quickly your body produces new, healthy collagen. Collagen is the protein responsible for plumping up your cheeks, filling in fine lines and smoothing out wrinkles.
Most of our clients enjoy satisfactory results after just one treatment. Come in six to nine months after your first treatment so we can determine if you need a follow-up treatment. After that, you shouldn’t need another treatment for three years.
The best complementary treatments to your PDO thread lift depend on the results you’re looking to achieve. If you’re more worried about static lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers are the perfect complement for your PDO thread lift.
