What Is a PDO Thread Lift?
A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical, minimally invasive method of facial rejuvenation. It utilizes PDO threads, which are polydioxanone threads, to stimulate collagen production at a subdermal level and enhance your natural facial contours. PDO threads are absorbable sutures similar to those used in cardiovascular procedures, and your body naturally absorbs them.
A PDO thread lift may help enhance the appearance areas around the:
When administered, these threads may be used to lift and restructure tissues. By encouraging the production of new collagen, this helps better support skin.
What Could I Expect from the Treatment Process?
Each PDO thread lift experience will vary on the specific goals and concerns of the patient. During these outpatient treatment sessions, PDO threads are administered one at a time. Each thread is carefully placed into the skin, allowing for the lifting and contouring of skin.
PDO thread lift sessions are relatively short, and there is no set downtime associated with the process. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities in the Washington D.C. area. However, it is normal to notice some bruising, swelling, or redness in the treatment area.
Results achieved with each PDO thread lift will vary, but they are typically gradual. It is important to allow yourself time to enjoy the results of subdermal tissue enhancement as your body responds to the stimulation of collagen production. Results achieved may last for up to 18 months.
Am I a Good Candidate?
A PDO thread lift may be a good choice for you if you are seeking an alternative to a traditional facelift procedure. This non-surgical method offers a less invasive option, but it is important to keep in mind the results may be more subtle than a surgical procedure.
However, most generally healthy adults may be able to benefit from this type of procedure. A consultation with our professionals in the Washington D.C. area can help ensure this is the right facial rejuvenation treatment for you as well as ensure you have a realistic understanding of and expectations for treatment.
