How Do PDO Thread Lifts Work?
PDO thread lifts involve inserting very thin threads made of absorbable polydioxanone under the skin to provide lifting and rejuvenation effects. Here’s an overview:
- PDO is a dissolvable suture material used for many years in medical procedures. The threads fully absorb over 4-6 months.
- Inserted threads provide structure that lifts sagging skin on the cheeks, jowls and neck.
- As the threads dissolve, collagen production is stimulated to smooth wrinkles and fine lines.
- Improvements emerge progressively over 6-12 months as the threads lift then dissolve while collagen regenerates for tightening.
- Tiny insertion points allow threads to be placed strategically in 30-60 minutes with only local numbing.
For longer lasting results, PDO threads can be combined with laser or ultrasound skin tightening. This further stimulates collagen for gradual tightening over time.
Benefits of PDO Thread Lifts
Patients choose PDO thread lifts for advantages including:
|Minimally invasive procedure||Office-based procedure with little to no scarring.|
|Affordability||More affordable alternative to surgical facelift.|
|Low risk||Less risk, discomfort and shorter recovery than invasive surgery.|
|Natural looking results||Noticeable yet natural-looking lifting and smoothing of skin.|
|Collagen stimulation||Stimulates your own collagen for longer lasting improvements.|
|Repeatable||Can be repeated every 1-2 years for sustained enhancements.|
|Gradual results||Gradual, subtle rejuvenation appears over 2-3 months.|
For moderate sagging, PDO threads safely lift and tighten while avoiding facelift surgery.
The PDO thread experts at Montville MedSpa determine the right threads to use based on your individual goals.
Your PDO Thread Lift Experience
Understanding the straightforward procedure and recovery helps ease any concerns:
Your thread lift procedure involves:
- Topical numbing cream applied to maximize comfort
- PDO threads skillfully inserted via small needle punctures
- Gentle molding of skin to desired position over threads
- Procedure takes around 30 minutes depending on number of threads
Recovery from a PDO thread lift procedure is remarkably smooth for most patients. For the first few days, you may experience some mild tenderness, swelling and bruising around treatment areas as your body adjusts to the newly lifted contours.
Any discomfort can usually be managed easily with over-the-counter pain medications.
The smart design of PDO threads allows for quick healing with minimal downtime. Most swelling and discoloration subsides within 5-7 days.
You can return to light activities after 2 days and regular routines within a week. But it’s best to avoid strenuous exercise during that initial 7-day period to allow tissues to stabilize gently.
It’s important to keep in mind that the structural lift from PDO threads develops very gradually over time. As the threads are absorbed by your body, your natural collagen production is stimulated.
The full contouring results will emerge over 6-8 weeks, with ongoing subtle enhancements noticeable through 3 months post-procedure.
Overall, PDO threads provide a remarkably comfortable and low-risk way to reap the benefits of a facelift without major surgery.
The recovery period is swift, and those gradual yet long-lasting improvements are worth the minimal initial investment of time. Let me know if you need any clarification about the process.
Caring for Skin After PDO Thread Lifts
Certain measures preserve and prolong your rejuvenated appearance:
Avoid rubbing or massaging treatment areas to prevent thread shifting. Follow any instructions for skin care provided by your practitioner. Refrain from facials, laser treatments or chemical peels until threads absorb properly.
Repeat thread lifts every 12 to 18 months to lift sagging areas as they recur. Protect your skin from sun damage by using broad spectrum SPF 30+ daily. Eat a healthy diet with plenty of antioxidant foods to support collagen
Am I a Good Candidate for PDO Thread Lifts?
The ideal PDO thread lift candidates include:
|Best Candidates||Those in overall good health without serious medical conditions. Have mild to moderately sagging or lax facial skin. Seeking preventative facial rejuvenation before major sagging develops. Willing to allow gradual improvements over months as threads dissolve.|
|Less Ideal Candidates||People with very severe/heavy drooping facial skin and folds. Those expecting immediate surgical-level changes from threads. Individuals with conditions affecting wound healing. People prone to thick scar formation.|
Realistic expectations about the degree of lifting and tightening threads are important.
