Many people mistakenly believe that a facelift is the only way to restore youthfulness to the face and reverse the signs of aging. While it is an effective procedure, surgery isn’t for everyone. The lengthy downtime and scars that come with a facelift make many patients apprehensive, leaving them wondering if there are any other options.

PDO thread lift is one of the most powerful non-invasive alternatives to a facelift procedure. It involves using biocompatible sutures to lift skin tissues in the face and stimulate collagen production. This procedure gives patients an instant lift, taking years off of the face by smoothing out fine lines and restoring youthful contours at the jawline.

What is a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift is a procedure in which special threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO), a natural and biodegradable polymer, are inserted deep into the facial skin. A thin, specially designed tubular needle is used to insert the thread. Once it has been placed under the skin, it creates a tightening effect by lifting the skin to a more youthful position. This ultimately leads to an increase in collagen production, leaving the patient with fewer wrinkles down the line.

What are the different types of PDO Thread Lifts?

PDO Thread Lift with barbed threads

This version utilizes threads with tiny barbs to lift sagging skin in the cheek region. Results with this approach are more dramatic and show up almost immediately. Beyond that, it results in a massive boost in collagen production.

PDO Thread Lift with smooth threads

This version involves threads that have no barbs, allowing them to be placed both vertically and horizontally beneath the skin. Laying the threads in this mesh pattern allows for a major improvement in skin firmness, as well as a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

What are the benefits of a PDO thread lift?

The benefits of a PDO thread lift include:

  • A relatively quick procedure
  • A faster recovery period with less downtime than a facelift
  • Can be used for both sagging skin and fine lines
  • There are no scars left behind and all bruising and swelling are mild and tolerable
  • The results show up almost immediately, giving patients a rejuvenated look that is long-lasting
  • If needed, the procedure can be performed again down the line

Who is an ideal candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?

Ideal candidates for a PDO Thread Lift are those who do not feel ready to undergo a facelift but would still like to achieve a lifting effect on their face and appear younger. As with any procedure, patients should be in good physical and mental health and have realistic expectations for the results of the procedure.

What is the recovery time after a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift is an incredibly safe procedure that utilizes FDA-approved threading. A local anesthetic is administered to the treatment area. A needle is then used to create a small opening in which the threads can be inserted. The threads are gently pulled until the skin has reached its ideal position. The needle is then carefully removed from the skin, and the process is repeated for other threads.

As the PDO Thread Lift is not a surgical procedure, the recovery period is considerably fast. This treatment requires no scalpels or stitching, meaning there is little chance of bruising. There are some guidelines that patients need to follow, which will enable them to get back to their regular routines after just a day of rest. If there is any discomfort (which is usually mild) over-the-counter medications can help.
