PDO Threads - Non-Surgical Facelift and Skin Tightening Explained

Have you noticed the whisper of time on your once-youthful skin? Fine lines and a touch of laxity are the natural, early signs of a life beautifully lived, but what if you could recapture a touch of that youthful vibrancy, without resorting to drastic measures? Enter PDO threads, a biocompatible suture that’s seen decades of use in surgery, now has a new calling in non-surgical facelifts. We’ll be uncovering how PDO thread lifts work, highlighting the benefits and what sort of results you can expect from them.

What Are PDO Threads

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are wispy-thin sutures composed of the same biocompatible material used in dissolvable stitches. There are 3 types of PDO threads:

  • Mono Threads – Singular, smooth threads whose presence stimulates collagen production, subtly rejuvenating your skin over time.
  • Cog Threads – The structure of these threads is designed to grip the skin, providing extra support and a more pronounced lift. They are particularly effective when addressing sagging skin around the cheeks, jowls, or brow, pulling it taut, and reducing early signs of aging.
  • Screw Threads – These types of PDO threads have a spiral design, and are used to restore volume in sunken areas.

How Do PDO Threads Work In Non-Surgical Facelifts?

There are 3 key points to a PDO thread lift; the immediate, short-term, and long-term effects.

1. Immediate Lift – As the threads are inserted and anchored under the skin, they will physically lift and tighten it instantly.

2. Collagen Production – The very presence of PDO threads will stimulate cells called fibroblasts, causing them to ramp up your body’s production of collagen. This will have lasting improvements on your skin’s texture and elasticity.

3. Long-Term Remodeling – The PDO threads will dissolve over six to twelve months, but the collagen left behind will maintain your skin’s newly lifted, tightened appearance.

What Are The Benefits Of PDO Threads?

Compared to surgical options, there are many benefits that a PDO thread lift offers:
  • Minimal downtime: Procedures are finished in as little as 45 minutes, and get you back into your usual routine within 24-48 hours.
  • Natural-looking results: The improvements made by PDO threads are subtle by design, enhancing your features and leaving a natural-looking result.
  • Versatility: All of your concerns are an option, as a PDO thread lift can address a sagging jawline, cheeks, and neck, as well as wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and brow.
  • Fewer risks: PDO threads have remained as a surgical tool for their exceedingly low-risk factors. The worst you may encounter is minor pain, bruising, dimpling, and inflammation, all of which are easily corrected.
  • Long-lasting results: The long-term improvements of a PDO thread lift can last up to 2 years, or even longer in younger patients!

Reveal Your Most Radiant Self - Results Of PDO Thread Lifts?

The results of a PDO thread lift are nothing short of transformative. You’ll experience an immediate tightening and lifting effect right after the procedure as if your skin has been expertly sculpted and smoothed. But the true magic happens in the weeks and months that follow, as your body’s natural collagen production ramps up, gradually improving skin texture, tone, and elasticity. These results should last between 12-18 months on average but can be extended with proper maintenance and follow-up treatments.

Why Choose a PDO Thread Lift Over A Traditional Facelift?

While surgical facelifts offer dramatic results, the beauty of PDO thread lifts lies in their gentle, natural-looking enhancements. Imagine a quick, virtually painless treatment that leaves you glowing, not bandaged – no hospital stay, no extensive downtime required. For those who have health conditions that may prevent them from undergoing a traditional facelift, a PDO thread lift is a great alternative for a refreshed, lifted appearance without the risks and recovery associated with major surgery. It’s also a good option for those who don’t want a permanent fix, as the results can be maintained or adjusted over time.
