PDO THREAD LIFT
WHAT IS A PDO THREAD LIFT?
A PDO thread lift is designed to subtly lift the facial features to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while encouraging collagen production for more volume in the treated areas. PDO threads come in a variety of textures for customized treatments.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT PROCESS?
Before treatment, the patient's skin will be marked for insertion and direction of the inserted threads. Once marked, the insertion points will be throughly anesthetized. Multiple threads can be inserted through the same point in the skin. PDO threads are attached to a long cannula. The cannula will be pushed through the tissue beneath the skin.
When the thread has reached its predetermined end point, the thread will be released and the cannula removed. This process will be repeated until the desired lift has been achieved, with as many 1-15 threads inserted depending on the treatment area and concern being addressed. Any extra thread will be trimmed. The threads will be massaged to ensure the tissue is smooth and no dimpling is present.
WHAT AREAS CAN A PDO THREAD LIFT TREAT?
Because a PDO thread lift is so versatile, it can treat virtually any area of the face. These include the:
Naso jugal folds
HOW LONG DO THE THREADS LAST?
How long the PDO threads last depends on a number of factors, including the thickness of the threads, the quality of the threads and your body’s rate of metabolism. However, most of our clients find that the threads have dissolved within six to nine months.
