A PDO Thread Lift is a non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens skin tissues. At Sculpt MD, we use absorbable Nova threads that also facilitate collagen production, improving the overall quality of the skin. PDO Thread Lift is ideal for you if you want a non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift.
What is PDO Thread Lift?
PDO Thread Lift is a procedure that utilizes Polydioxanone (PDO) threads to lift and tighten your skin. During the procedure, the PDO threads are inserted into the deep underlying layers of the skin, triggering a series of natural responses.
The threading procedure leads to instant skin lifting. The PDO Nova threads stimulate collagen formation and cell regeneration, improving your skin’s texture and volume. Finally, the procedure contracts fat tissues and ensures skin tightening. Nova threads are absorbable, so they automatically get absorbed by the body within 6 months.
What Do PDO Threads Treat?
PDO Thread Lift tightens sagging skin, restores elasticity, removes fine lines, treats the wrinkles around your eyes and mouth, provides skin rejuvenation, adds volume to your skin, and reduces fat cells. Different types of PDO threads are used for different purposes. Your cosmetic surgeon will choose the ideal PDO thread for your specific goals.
What Areas of the Body Can be Treated with PDO Threads?
PDO threads treat most areas of the face, including the neck, jowls, jawline, regions around the mouth, nasolabial folds, cheeks, regions around the eyes, eyebrows, and the sensitive skin under the eyes.
What to Expect from PDO Thread Lift?
During the PDO thread lift procedure, your cosmetic surgeon will numb the targeted regions with local anesthesia. Following that, the physician will insert the PDO Nova threads via sharp or blunt cannulas (needles) into your skin. The physician will guide the threads into the deeper layers of your skin to trigger collagen formation. Meanwhile, the threads will also pull your skin upwards, resulting in a facial lift. The excess threads will be cut off. The entire procedure will conclude within 30 minutes, causing minimal discomfort.
What is Recovery Like from PDO Thread Lift?
You may experience some sensitivity and mild discomfort for around 48 hours after the procedure. You should avoid steam rooms, saunas, or heavy exercises. Your cosmetic surgeon will also ask you to avoid going to the dentist or opening your mouth widely for the next two weeks. Your doctor may recommend simple taping to ensure optimal results.
Your skin will look instantly tighter after the procedure because of the threads’ mechanical impact. Your skin may look a little overextended for a few days, but the results will look a lot more natural within a week. PDO thread lift encourages skin cell regeneration, so your new cells will grow naturally, ensuring that the final results look perfectly natural. The threads will dissolve completely within 9 months, but your skin will continue to heal and improve long after that.
