PDO therapy is a cosmetic technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. It involves the implantation of fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads (similar to those used in medical suturing) into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small needles.
There are many benefits to thread lifting when compared to traditional facelift surgery. First, because thread lifts are much easier to perform than facelift surgery, they are much more affordable. Since it is a non-invasive procedure, the recovery time is extremely short. Most patients experience slight soreness around the area that has been threaded for up to a week after the procedure.
Properly trained medical professionals can use this product and special techniques to provide lift and tightening on areas around the neck and face with excellent results.
See for yourself why patients are opting for this amazing non-invasive procedure.
Threading provides add an immediate tightening effect, and even better results are seen in the following weeks as the threads stimulate collagen production. Because of this, even after the threads have dissolved, the lifting effect remains. Best results are seen at around six weeks post-procedure.
Before Treatment After Treatment
Polydioxanone — a clinically proven material already used in surgical sutures. It’s the preferred choice of material for a thread face lift as it naturally and safely breaks down and dissolves in the body.
Men and women in their 30s and beyond who have mild to moderate drooping, lines, and wrinkles in the forehead, face and/or neck. We can also perform the treatment as a non-surgical eyelift or on other areas of the body, such as, upper arms, stomach, and thighs.
You must also be in overall good health and have realistic expectations of the treatment. Facelift threading is best suited for those who want to enhance their appearance without resorting to cosmetic surgery.
The insertion of the PDO threads triggers the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which lasts for at least 2-3 years. The threads themselves dissolve over six months as new fibrous connective tissue grows around them.
No, the threads will gradually dissolve in the body over six months, which actually helps stimulate collagen production. The threads work to return some of the skin’s elasticity, resulting in a reduction in sagging, lines, and wrinkles.
Local anaesthetic will be applied to the treated area, so you will be comfortable throughout your face thread lift. Your doctor will then use a cannula or a micro-needle to insert the PDO threads into the deeper layer of your skin. You will be able to return to your usual activities within a couple of days.
Your non-surgical facelift will take around 45-60 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated.
You will notice an immediate improvement right after your threading facelift. Optimal results will begin show over 2-6 months as collagen production is stimulated. The threads will dissolve over six months, but the results will remain for much longer.
This varies depending on the patient’s age at the time of treatment, the quality of the skin, the degree of sagging and the number of threads used. However, results tend to last 2-3 years on average.
