What Are PDO Threads?
PDO (polydioxanone) threads are specialized medical-grade threads made of protein. This customizable lifting treatment lifts and tightens the skin, achieving a youthful, fresh appearance without traditional surgery’s invasiveness, cost, or downtime.
PDO Threads boost your body’s natural supply of collagen, rejuvenating your skin to keep it looking and feeling young. These threads relax tendons and muscles and increase blood flow to the area to stimulate the production of new collagen in the skin. PDO threads also produce collagen in areas of wrinkles.
Benefits of a PDO Thread Lift
There are several benefits associated with PDO thread facelifts, such as:
- Almost immediate results
- Short, minimally invasive treatment
- Nonsurgical technique
- Lifted, youthful appearance
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
- No downtime or repeat treatments
How Do PDO Thread Lifts Work?
You’ll first attend an initial consultation with one of our specialists to determine if PDO thread lifts suit your needs. If approved, we’ll schedule your appointment.
Our Rochester skincare specialists use a hollow cannula to place threads into the patient’s face. The PDO thread grabs at loose tissue underneath the surface of the skin. As we remove the cannula, PDO threads gently lift and tighten the skin. For collagen boost in areas of wrinkles, we’ll insert the threads in multiple overlapping patterns.
PDO Thread Lift Aftercare
There’s minimal aftercare required after a PDO facelift treatment. It’s normal to experience mild swelling and bruising of the treatment site for up to 48 hours, though any pain should fade after this time.
To ensure the best results, our skincare experts advise patients avoid:
- Rubbing the face for at least one week after their procedures
- Sipping through a straw or pursing their lips
- Sleeping on your side
- Vigorous exercise
Any sweating or straining of the facial muscles may dislodge the thread and interrupt your treatment. If you have any questions or concerns following a PDO lift, call our Rochester office at 248-413-5835.
