About PDO Threads

A thread lift, sometimes referred to as a “luchtime lift”, uses absorabable, barbed or smooth sutures to offer a tighter, more youthful aesthetic appearance to the face, neck and many areas of the body.

PDO threads are an industry-leading new treatment option that uses the principles of the thread lift technique. This means that special threads are injected under the facial tissues where you need extra lift and volume.

PDO threads uses absorbable suture threads made from polydioxanone that are commonly used in biomedical practices for cardiothoracic surgery – specifically because they are fully absorbed by the body within 4-6 months and leave behind no scar tissue. The result is new collagen growth and improved skin structure that generates better hold and volume under the skin for over 1 year.

PDO thread treatments can be performed using a local anesthetic so you’re comfortable and relaxed at our state-of-the-art office. After we determine the right treatment approach for you and your goals, the threads are injected and inserted under the skin where they are gently lifted into a more upright position, bringing the skin and tissues with it. The threads remain under the skin where they will stimulate collagen growth and gradually be absorbed into the body. Overall, your appointment can take 2 hours. After treatment, you can return home.

Who Can Benefit from PDOThreads?

Normally, faces have a defined “V” shape that gives it definition and a beautiful look. Over time, gravity and collagen loss can cause this shape to get lost. Restoring this look is usually the goal of a facelift, but PDO threads can help redefine this shape without the need for extensive incisions or trauma on the surrounding tissues. This means PDO threads are an excellent option for patients seeing the beginning signs of aging but who aren’t committed to a surgical procedure. PDO threads can be used anywhere, and can even be used on the lower face, including the neck and jaw. With a combination approach including other non-surgical treatments like fillers and/or Botox® , PDO threads can redefine your look and your confidence for the long term.

What to Expect

After your PDO thread treatment, downtime is minimal and you can return to your regular work and social activities quickly. However, you can expect some redness and light swelling and bruising, so some patients choose to take the rest of the day off for swelling or bruising to subside. You’ll be given specific instructions to follow to get the best out of your results, including avoiding certain skincare products, sleeping on your side, and restricting exercise for one week.

    What types of benefits and results can be expected from a Facial Threading?

    • Revitalize early loosening of the facial structures
    • Tighten Jowls
    • Lift sagging eyebrows
    • Correction to premature loosening of the neck skin

    You’ll see results immediately with your final results emerging over the course of one or two months after treatment. During your follow-up appointments at 1 week and again at 8 weeks, we’ll ensure your treatment is going as planned and recommend your best options going forward.

    While a thread lift can be expected to correct certain conditions, you will continue to age naturally. Ongoing sun protection and regular skincare maintenance will help to maintain your results.

    FAQ

    Why a Thread Lift?

    Threads can take years off the appearance of aging by lifting and tightening loose skin, sagging skin at a fraction of the cost of invasive surgery.

    Who is a perfect candidate for a Thread Lift?

    Thread lifts are better suited for men or women between the ages of 30 and 70. The treatment will have the best results with skin that has minimal sagging and offers the best results for cheeks, jowls, brows and the neck area as well as other areas of the body.

    If you are not interested in traditional surgery, then a thread lift is a great alternative, as it is minimally invasive and can be carried out with local anesthetic.

    Is there any scarring with a Thread Lift?

    This treatment requires a minimally invasive injection and leaves no scarring.

    What are the risk of a Thread Lift?

    No cosmetic treatment is without risk, but the level of risk. Thread lifts can cause minor side effects such as infection, bruising, swelling, tenderness, numbness and slight asymmetry.

    What happens after the treatment?

    After the treatment, we will provide you with aftercare instructions. Most patients experience some mild swelling and bruising, but this should settle quickly. Recovery time is usually less than one week, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for 2 to 3 weeks.

    How does a Full Face Thread Lift work?

    A thread lift is a type of face lift that is often referred to as the ‘lunch hour lift’. This is due to its simplicity and the time it takes to carry out the treatment. A tiny entry will be made by the ear, then fine threads are advanced along pre-marked contours. The threads are made from polydioxanone (PDO) – the same material used for medical stitches – which dissolve naturally in the body over time.

    How long does a Thread Lift take?

    A typical thread lift treatment takes as little as one hour, but it depends on the number of threads the provider uses and the areas being treated.

    How long do the results of a Thread Lift last?

    The lasting results of a thread lift depend on the age of the patient at the time of treatment and how much sagging the thread lift has corrected. It should be noted that sagging will return over time, but many providers report that the results last for anything between 2 and 3 years. To extend the results, it is possible to have additional threads inserted and you provider can advise you when this is required.
