What is a PDO Thread Lift?
PDO Thread Lift (Polydioxanone) uses a biodegradable polyester suture. PDO is a non-surgical face lift done via the insertion of a dissolvable collagen thread that will stimulate the production of naturally occurring collagen in the skin. This minimal invasive lift will sculpt the shape of your face to help reduce any signs of aging. It is a less invasive than a facelift and can take less time to perform, usually taking 45 minutes. PDO Thread Lift can be used to treat any parts of your face that may be experiencing aging, such as, cheeks, jaw, neck, and eyes. The recovery from this procedure is minimal and many are able to return to work the same day. Avoid sleeping on your side, and intense exercise for 1 to 2 weeks. Avoid drinking through a straw and pursing your lips.
How long does a PDO Thread Lift last?
PDO Thread Lift can show immediate results of tighten skin that was once sagging. Younger people who get this procedure done tend to have results that last 3 to 4 years. Older people who have less elasticity and get this procedure done, tend to have results last 1 to 2 years.
When will I see results?
To see results from your PDO Thread Lift procedure depends on multiple things. It will depend on your age and how fast your body can produce collagen. It will also depend on how well you upkeep with after-care. Even though the recovery is minimal, you should stay away from doing any activity that can make contact with your face. Your final results will be seen within one to two months from your treatment.
