Thanks to PDO threads! You can now tighten and lift your entire face, minimize wrinkles, and even contour your face in less time than it takes to get a mani-pedi and be able to return to work immediately after the procedure.

PDO thread is the latest facial rejuvenation treatment and one of the hottest trends in aesthetic field. It’s the perfect choice if you are looking for instant results, with little to no downtime. PDO threads are dissolvable sutures (used safely for decades in surgery) composed of biocompatible material. They come in various designs, each possessing unique abilities to address aging related concerns through a non surgical facelift.

The threads slowly dissolve over 2-3 months, leaving behind a mesh network of collagen fibers that are responsible for visible lifting, skin tightening and rejuvenation that lasts out to 6-12 months. The more PDO in the thread, the greater the collagen stimulation, so certain threads are better suited to certain areas.

The cost varies on the number of threads required for an optimal result and the indication for treatment. A full quote can be provided by your practitioner during your consultation.

Lifting Threads

Also known as “Barbed” threads, lifting threads gathers skin to produce a lifting action. The thread is attached just beneath the skins surface and then tightened to lift the skin. Thicker lifting threads can even help lift breasts and buttocks.

Areas most commonly treated with lifting ( barbed ) threads are:
Jaw lift   |   Cheek lift   |   Arte lift   |   Eyebrow lift   |   Neck lift

Rejuvenating Threads

Rejuvenating or Smooth PDO threads are non-barbed threads that do not provide lift, but stimulate collagen to restore volume.

Areas and concerns most commonly treated with these type of threads are:
Acne scars   |   Eyebrow commas   |   Glabellar lines/forehead wrinkles   |   Marionette lines/chin lines   |   Radial lip lines   |   Skin tightening   |   Submental tightening   |   Vermillion border

After receiving a topical anesthetic, PDO Threads will be inserted using a micro-needle or cannula. The treatment is a highly customized procedure and your practitioner will work closely with you in order to achieve optimal results. You will begin to see results in 6 weeks which continue to improve over the next 2 to 6 months as new collagen is produced. Although the PDO Threads will slowly dissolve, you will continue to see results for up to 12 months. The results vary depending on lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol, exercise, etc. It may be recommended to have another PDO Thread treatment six months after the initial treatment to maintain the tightening effects. The time of your treatment will vary based on many factors—such as the size of your treatment area — but typically takes between 45 and 60 minutes. PDO Thread procedure may produce swelling and bruising in the area that has been treated, which will subside after a few days.
