PDO Threads

PDO Threads are a unique facial rejuvenation procedure that elevates sagging facial skin without the need for surgery, scars, or general anesthesia. It is a simple, in-office procedure to re-contour the face of your patients by elevating the deeper layers of their skin.

About the Procedure

PDO thread lifts are minimally invasive procedures that have three effects on the skin:

– Instant Skin
– Lifting Cellular Renewal
– Skin Tightening

After numbing and infusion of anesthesia, the PDO threads are inserted via sharp or blunt tip needles (called cannulas) into different layers of the skin. Once inserted, the threads anchor the skin and lift it upwards. The excess threads are then removed.

Depending on the areas treated, the procedure takes on average around 15-30 minutes. There may be some discomfort during the procedure, but because of the advances in technology, patients are experiencing less and less pain. The advantage of a thread lift is that it offers a combination of quick recovery, affordability, durability, and great results. The procedure is suitable for most people above 25 years of age when the effects of aging become apparent.

The Advantages

PDO threads are made of a material that is often used for surgical sutures. PDO threads are biocompatible and generally have stronger lifting capabilities compared to Silhouette Soft and alternative threads. PDO threads’ strong lifting capabilities are often used to lift heavier skin to provide a longer, sustainable lift. PDO threads are also known to generate healthier-looking skin compared to other threads available on the market.
