PDO threads are a great choice for patients looking to correct early signs of aging or wanting to correct minor imperfections and smooth out their skin. When PDO threads are placed, they create micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. This leads to long-term tightening and giving the skin a more youthful appearance. Patients who have previously undergone surgery or who have more severe signs of aging may benefit more from a facelift or blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). If you are looking for a non-surgical option, PDO threads can be an excellent choice for achieving your desired results. At Skinlastiq, our team is highly trained in the best methods of PDO threading.
What is the procedure like?
PDO Threads are a minimally invasive procedure, meaning it is done with local anesthesia and does not require any type of incision to be made. The surgical sutures or threads are inserted into the skin using a very fine needle, which will get absorbed by the body over time. PDO Threads procedures typically take about 30-45 minutes and can be done in an office setting. There is no downtime, and you can resume normal daily activities immediately following your procedure.
What can PDO threads do for me?
- Relax wrinkles
- Improve sagging skin
- Lift jowls
- Improve facial contours
- Improved double chin
- Improve skin texture and tone
- Reduce acne scars
- Improve skin laxity
What are the results like?
The results of this non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment can vary between patients, but PDO threads are generally known for providing effective, natural-looking results that last. Facial wrinkles and sagging skin are alleviated in a way that looks both fresh and subtle (unlike fillers), yet the results are visible right away. PDO threads don’t provide permanent results, but they do typically last longer than other non-invasive anti-aging treatments. It’s common to see the effects of PDO threads lasting up to two years!
How long will it take to see results from PDO threads?
In most cases, you will notice a significant improvement immediately after your treatment. Over the following weeks, this improvement will only get better, as your body continues producing collagen and elastin around the threads. The resulting lift should last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, depending on the type of thread used.
The right candidate for PDO threads is realistic about expectations and understands that he/she is not going to look 20 years younger overnight! Patients who understand that PDO threads are one part of a holistic approach to aging are ideal candidates.
Will I need more than one treatment?
It depends on how much correction you’re looking for. If your goal is to have a more youthful appearance, and you have multiple signs of aging that you want to address—such as wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin—then it’s likely that you will need more than one treatment to achieve your desired results. However, if your main concern is eliminating the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles and you don’t feel like your skin is sagging, then it’s possible that one PDO thread treatment could provide the results you are looking for.
Keep in mind that this depends on multiple factors including what type of PDO threads we use as well as other treatments we might include to ensure optimal results during your appointment with us.
How long do the results last?
The results of PDO thread lift can last for up to two years and sometimes even longer. The longevity of the results depends on many factors such as the type of threads used, the technique employed by your doctor, your skin type and age, and how well you take care of your skin after treatment.
Your doctor will be able to tell you how long the results may last during a face-to-face consultation
