PDO threads are used in soft tissue to reduce the appearance of sagging skin and help fill in hard lines throughout the body providing a minimally invasive alternative to surgical lifting procedures. Not only can PDO threads improve the appearance of sagging skin, PDO can also help promote the stimulation of collagen and neovascularization, which helps to improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume for a timeless rejuvenation.
A thread lift can treat most parts of your face that are experiencing signs of aging. The most commonly treated areas are the areas around your cheeks, jaw, neck, and eyes.
In a study published in Aesthetic Surgery Journal, a surgeon with 16 years of thread lift experience says he has seen results last anywhere from 1 to 9 years. Younger people tend to have results that last 3 to 4 years. Older people with poor skin volume or elasticity tend to only see benefits for 1 to 2 years.
Recovery from a PDO thread lift is minimal. You may have some swelling and bruising for the first 24-48 hours but you can return to most of your daily routines right away.
You should avoid rubbing your face as much as possible the week after your procedure to avoid accidentally dislodging the thread. You’ll also likely be advised to avoid pursing your lips, smoking, and drinking through a straw for the first several weeks.
Other activities you may want to avoid for 1 to 2 weeks include sleeping on your side, intense exercise, and visiting saunas.
Sleeping with your head propped on a pillow can help you avoid accidentally rolling onto your face during the middle of the night.
The complete results to skin firmness and rejuvenation can be seen 3-6 weeks after your procedure. During these weeks, the skin becomes renewed, and collagen overflows in the treatment area. This results in a youthful glow and tightness. We always schedule a 6 week follow up to make sure that patients are happy.
