Benefits:

  • Non-Surgical Option: PDO thread treatment offers a non-surgical alternative for individuals looking to improve the appearance of sagging skin. It provides a lifting and tightening effect without the need for invasive surgical procedures.

  • Natural-Looking Results: The threads are strategically placed to lift and contour the skin, resulting in natural-looking results. They can effectively address sagging in various areas, such as the face, neck and jowls, providing a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

  • Collagen Stimulation: PDO threads stimulate collagen production in the treated area. Collagen is a protein that helps maintain skin elasticity and firmness. By encouraging collagen production, PDO thread treatment helps improve skin texture and overall skin quality.

  • Long-Lasting Effects: The threads used in PDO thread treatment are made of biocompatible material called polydioxanone. While the threads gradually dissolve over time, the lifting effect remains as collagen continues to be produced. The results can last for several months to a year, depending on the individual and the area treated.

  • Minimally Invasive: PDO thread treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that requires only small incisions for thread insertion. This means minimal scarring, a shorter recovery period, and a lower risk of complications compared to surgical options.

  • Versatility: PDO threads can be used to address various concerns, including sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. They can be customized to target specific areas and can be combined with other treatments to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

  • Quick Procedure: PDO thread treatment is generally a quick procedure that can be performed in an outpatient setting. The duration of the treatment session depends on the number of threads and the areas being treated but typically ranges from 30 minutes to an hour.

  • Minimal Downtime: After PDO thread treatment, most individuals can resume their daily activities immediately. Some temporary side effects, such as mild swelling or bruising, may occur, but they typically resolve within a few days. This makes it a convenient option for individuals with busy schedules.

PDO threads, which are composed of the same biodegradable polymer as this new serum, have been safely used in various surgeries for over 30 years and have become a leading non-invasive aesthetic procedure. PDO is an ingredient that is certified by the FDA and naturally dissolves and is absorbed by the body in about 6-12 months. As it is dissolves, it aids in the production of collagen resulting in smoother, tighter skin.

  1. Consultation: We start the process with a consultation to understand your goals and expectations for the treatment. We assess your skin condition and determine if PDO thread treatment is suitable for you.
     

  2. Preparation: On the treatment day, we cleanse the treatment area and apply a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. We mark the areas where the threads will be inserted based on the desired lifting effect.
     

  3. Insertion of Threads: Using a fine needle or cannula, we insert the PDO threads into the deeper layers of your skin. These threads are made of biocompatible material. We carefully guide the threads to achieve the desired lift and contour.
     

  4. Tissue Rejuvenation: Once the threads are inserted, they stimulate collagen production, which improves skin elasticity and firmness. This collagen production is a natural response to the threads and helps to further lift and tighten the skin over time.
     

  5. Trimming Excess Threads: After inserting the desired number of threads, we trim away any excess thread material, ensuring that only the necessary lengths remain under the skin.
     

  6. Post-Treatment Care: Following the procedure, we may gently massage the treated area to help alleviate any discomfort or swelling. We provide specific instructions on how to care for the treated area, such as avoiding strenuous activities, applying ice packs, or using prescribed topical creams.
     

  7. Recovery and Results: You can typically resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure. Some temporary side effects, like mild swelling, bruising, or redness, may occur but should subside within a few days to a week. The threads gradually dissolve over time, but their lifting effect persists as collagen production continues. You can expect the full results of the PDO thread treatment to become visible over several weeks as collagen remodeling occurs.
