The PDO Thread Lift is an effective, non-surgical face-lifting treatment that is suitable for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of sagging skin. It is the latest and revolutionary skin lifting and tightening procedure. In the past thread lifting procedures required surgery but recently there has been a major change and now most thread lift procedures became non-invasive. It is the most commonly performed skin lifting treatment today. PDO threads can be divided into barbed, non-barbed and floating threads.
PDO thread lifting treatment, lifts and tightens the sagging tissues of the skin. The threads are made up of Polydioxanone and is mostly made in South Korea, which are introduced into deeper layers of the skin, and produces 3 different effects on the skin including: the contraction of fat tissues causing skin tightening and face sliming effect, collagen stimulation causing cellular renewal, and skin lifting mechanical effects. Since the PDO threads are absorbable they will be dissolved by simple hydrolysis and will disappear within 9 months after the procedure. But due to cellular rejuvenation the lifted facial contours may remain for another 3-6 months. To ensure long lasting results up to 3 years the procedure is recommended to be repeated 6-9 months after the first procedure.
After numbing the areas to be treated with a local anesthesia, the PDO threads are coated by silicon and polished several times in order to reduce both pain and bleeding during the procedure. Then they are inserted into different layers of the skin mainly in the subcutaneous fat layer via needles having sharp or blunt tips.
The procedure may take 15-60 minutes in total. The treatment is unexpectedly safe, except a few side effects including mild bruising and soreness which will resolve within 3-5 days after the treatment. Since PDO thread placement is an art and a science. We always recommend that you visit a registered clinic and have the procedure done by a medically trained practitioner, such as nurse, doctor or dentist.
