Minimally Invasive Non-surgical
Safe Solution for Sagging Skin
Time takes a tremendous toll on our skin as we age. Loose skin creates sagging bags that are hard to cover. A surgical facelift is the only method for permanently removing excess skin, but surgery is just not an option for many people. PDO is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment for facial rejuvenation.
PDO is safe, effective, and dissolvable thread used to pull and tighten sagging skin to dramatically improve your looks and reduce the signs of aging without surgery. The procedure is simple and only requires local anesthesia. Patients may experience minimal pain, with minimal bruising, and see a rapid recovery.
As another anti-aging option for a tailored and customized facial rejuvenation, PDO procedures fill the gap between surgery and injectables.
How do I know if I am a good candidate for PDO?
For the best results, the ideal candidates will have a skin layer that is not too thin, too thick, or extremely uneven. The skin should be thin enough so PDO Threads can make a visible difference and thick enough so the threads are not too close to the surface of the skin.
We offer consultations so why not schedule an appointment today?
How old do I have to be for PDO Threads?
PDO is recommended for both women and men ages 30-50 plus who experience moderate sagging in the midface, jowls, nasolabial folds, neck, and eyebrows. In addition to relieving sagging skin, patients may also experience improvement in skin texture, fine lines, and elasticity from collagen stimulation and neovascularization which will help soften wrinkles and fine lines and give the skin an overall firmer and tighter look. The procedure is also great for younger patients who are looking to define their jawlines with sharper V-lines and obtain a tight and contoured facial structure or fix droopy eyelids.
What Kind of Results Can Be Achieved With PDO Threads?
PDO Threads results are immediate. You do not have to wait weeks and months to see your results. Although individual results may vary, common results achieved with PDO include:
• Heart-shaped, higher cheekbone contouring • Exotic, cat eye contour • Tightened, defined jawline • Softer smile lines • Softer eyebrows • Smoother necklines
Benefits of PDO Threads
• Long-lasting results • Little risk of adverse reaction • Little to no downtime • Minimal to no scarring • No incision • Treats several areas of the face and body • May be repeated as necessary • Softens sagging, folding, or hollowing in the mid-face • Softens jowls along the jawline • Excellent alternative to surgical options
What if I have other procedures I have done or want to get done?
PDO Threads is a great procedure to include with other treatments such as lasers, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling, injectables, BOTOX®, Xeomin®, and fillers. The threads can be used to target sagging skin and fillers can be utilized for deep lines to create an overall youthful appearance to the face. Schedule an appointment for a consultation to learn more about treatment combinations to maximize the effects of PDO threads.
How long does the PDO procedure take?
The procedure takes an average of one hour but can take anywhere between 45 minutes to 90 minutes. Patients will see immediate results after the procedure, which can last from one year to 18 months. We recommend a consultation to discuss the look you desire and the results you can expect.
Can You Feel PDO Threads?
The actual puncture points of the threads may take a few weeks to heal, which means you may experience redness, soreness, and often a bit of tightness. Other than that, there really is no downtime after a PDO thread lift.
Do PDO Threads Build Collagen?
The PDO threads remain under the skin until they eventually dissolve, spurring the body to naturally produce more collagen to tighten the skin. The threads also anchor the skin and lift it upward.
Are PDO Threads Better Than Filler?
If you have drooping and sagging skin then a thread lift is going to deliver results than dermal filler as it will help to lift and tighten. However, if you’re simply struggling with volume loss around your cheeks then dermal filler injections may be the best option.
