PDO Threads are a highly effective non-surgical way to lift & tighten loose, saggy skin. PDO (polydioxanone) is a synthetic suture material widely used in general surgery and cardiology. In aesthetics, the threads help to lift sagging skin as well as stimulate your own natural collagen.
PDO threads are strong, non-allergenic and fully biodegradable. The PDO threads will dissolve over 6 months, while stimulating enough of your own collagen to last many years.
A PDO thread lift offers a short recovery time with excellent results.
This non-invasive procedure only requires a local anesthetic, while leaving no scarring. A thread lift is much more affordable than a traditional face lift and the results are long-lasting.
A thread lift’s staying power depends on the age of the patient at the time of the procedure and how much sagging the thread lift has corrected. Sagging will return over time as the aging process continues. However, many doctors report that the results last between 2 and 3 years. To extend the results of your PDO threads, it is possible to have additional threads inserted and your doctor can advise you when this is required.
A PDO thread lift is suitable for men and women between the ages of 35 and 70. The procedure is highly effective on skin that has minimal sagging and offers the best results for cheeks, jowls, brows and the neck area. If you are looking for effective, long-lasting results, a thread lift is an ideal choice.
