Beyond Facelifts: Surprising Benefits of PDO Threads You May Not Know About

Today, we’re diving into the world of PDO threads- my new favorite tool in the arsenal of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures.

If you’ve been facelift, brow lift, or even tummy tuck "curious", but have been held back by fears of pain, cost, or downtime, PDO threads might just be the game-changer you’ve been searching for.

What are PDO Threads?

So, what exactly are PDO threads? Picture this: tiny, dissolvable threads constructed from medical-grade polydioxanone strategically placed beneath your skin to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate- all without the need for sedation, scalpels or lengthy recovery periods. Intrigued? You should be!

In addition to tightening and lifting the targeted area for 6- 12 months, PDO threads boost the body's natural production of collagen for a one-two punch to combat the effects of aging. Because the threads naturally dissolve on their own over time, there is no need for any further treatments to extract them.

Areas of the Body We Treat with Threads:

While typically only thought of as a minimally invasive solution to a surgical facelift, threads can also be effective in other areas of the body not commonly mentioned including the following areas...

  1. Nose- Threads can be used to improve the appearance of bumps or to refine the tip of the nose (AKA tinkerbell lift).

  2. Stomach- For patients concerned with loose, crepey skin on the tummy, PDO threads can tighten and smooth wrinkled stomach skin.

  3. Face- From lifting brows to tightening the lower face and neck, PDO threads are the ultimate multitaskers when it comes to facial rejuvenation.

  4. Lips- For patients who want subtle definition on the border of their lips without looking overdone or over-filled, threads can be inserted in less than thirty minutes.

What to Expect:

While the procedure itself typically takes thirty minutes to one hour to complete once the local numbing agent has taken effect, the length of your treatment will vary depending on the targeted area.

Although patients may resume light to moderate daily activities immediately following the procedure, swelling should be anticipated. To ensure proper recovery, we recommend avoiding strenuous activity until the inflammation has subsided.
