PDO Threads Q&A

What are PDO threads?

PDO threads, also known as a thread lift, helps to rejuvenate the face’s appearance by carefully lifting the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Traditional facelifts can be very costly, invasive, and require a lot of downtime. A thread lift requires no surgery and can take as little as 45 minutes.

PDO threads use dissolvable sutures under the skin to give a more youthful appearance and minimize sagging skin. This treatment is an excellent option for those looking to lift their skin without requiring surgery.

What are the benefits of PDO threads?

A thread lift provides many benefits as your choice of cosmetics procedure. The primary goal of a thread lift is to give you an instant facelift without an invasive surgical procedure. This means you won’t need heavy sedation or have to take time away from work and leisurely activities. People who receive traditional facelifts must have close supervision for a couple of weeks.

With PDO threads, you save time and money due to the minimal downtime and immediate results. You can drive yourself home immediately following the procedure, so you won’t have to coordinate with someone else to take you home.

As with any cosmetic procedure, you may notice slight soreness, tenderness, and swelling around the treatment area. This is to be expected and should quickly resolve itself in several days.

Should I receive a facelift with PDO threads?

There are many options available for those looking to enhance their appearance. The ideal candidate for a thread lift is middle-aged individuals in their late 30s to 50s. Older individuals can also benefit greatly from a thread lift if other surgical options aren’t ideal.

Thread lifts require local anesthesia, so it’s best to consult your doctor regarding any health concerns that may interfere with its application, such as high blood pressure and heart problems.

How long do PDO threads last?

A thread lift typically lasts about a year on average. Some people may experience the benefits of a thread lift for up to three years. While results don’t last as long as a traditional facelift, its non-surgical and less-invasive methodology appeals to many people and greatly reduces the cost of the procedure.
