Who Might Benefit from a PDO Thread Treatment?

PDO Threads are one of the most popular anti-aging treatments on the market that offer a wonderful alternative for patients who are looking for lifting and tightening but are not ready for surgery. A thread lift can treat most areas of the face that are experiencing signs of aging. If you’re looking for a way to lift and rejuvenate your skin with minimal downtime, PDO threads may be right for you!

What are PDO Threads?

As early as your 30s, your skin begins to lose collagen, the supportive protein that gives it volume and elasticity. This can begin to cause a loss of volume which in turn causes the skin to crease and fold without youthful support. PDO Threads are made with special suture material known to trigger collagen production in the skin as it’s absorbed into the body. These types of PDO threads originated with surgical use in closing incisions but have become a beneficial way to treat signs of aging. Additionally, cosmetic PDO threads have a specialized texture to help lift and anchor the underlying tissues into a more upright position for optimal results.

How Do PDO Threads Work?

PDO threads are inserted under the skin using a cannula in the area to be treated. They can be gently lifted into a more upright position, bringing the underlying tissues with it. Then, the applicators are removed, leaving behind the thread which will stimulate collagen and dissolve over time.

Why Does Zuliani Facial Aesthetics offer PDO Threads?

The biggest benefit is that PDO threads can be performed right in our office with a local anesthetic, meaning there are no incisions or extensive downtime like a surgical facelift. Additionally, PDO threads are very versatile and can be performed on areas of the face like the cheeks, neck, and jowls. We can create a customized treatment plan for you using PDO threads as well as our best injectable treatments like fillers for the midface and Botox or Dysport for the upper face for a comprehensive anti-aging regimen without downtime.

What Can Be Expected After a PDO Threads Session?

You can return to your regular schedule immediately after thread treatment, but you can anticipate some visible swelling, redness, and possible bruising. You’ll need to follow some aftercare steps like avoiding extensive exercise, sleeping on your side, and rubbing the area where PDO threads were placed. Our team can discuss a recommended skincare regimen with you and which products to avoid during your short recovery, as well as which products can help you maintain your results. Immediate improvements in skin sagging will be apparent and benefits from the procedure will continue to emerge over the course of one to two months, with the PDO threads fully dissolving after four to six months. Newly stimulated collagen will remain, and results can last from 1-3 years depending on skin integrity.
