What Is PDO Thread And What Does It Do?
Known as a non-surgical facelift, PDO Thread, or PDO Threadlift, is a minimally invasive treatment that provides your skin with a subtle upward lift so your skin is allowed to tighten, thus countering the effects of aging skin and wrinkles usually around the cheeks, jowls or neck. A popular application is applying PDO Threads to slightly roll your lips for a natural plump so your lips looking slightly thicker appearance.
PDO stands for polydioxanone, which is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture, proven to be one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. PDO threads are used to enhance the appearances of the area treated and encourages natural production of collagen.
PDO threads can very effectively:
- Improve the quality of the skin
- Redefine the contour of the face
- Reduce roundness and wrinkles
- Lift sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls and neck.
- Enhance the volume of the lips
- Stimulate collagen production
How Long Does It Take?
The treatment time can vary from 20 minutes to 60 minutes depending on the area treated. The key to success is to openly communicate with our medical team and beauty consultants to make sure that you are a great fit for PDO Threads. Setting the right expectations as well as proper post-care is very important to your long term outcome. Our mission is to make sure you look and feel confident, both on the inside and out.
Is It Painful?
We do believe everyone has different pain tolerance. We will make sure that you are comfortable with the treatment. But the majority of the clients say Thread-Lift treatment is virtually pain-free. Threads are loaded in very fine needles, making implantation virtually painless. Also since there is no incision or stitches, scarring is virtually eliminated.
After The Treatment
Please do not touch treated areas for 4 hours after the treatment.
Please avoid sleeping on treated areas until redness or swelling is gone.
Please do not plan any facial treatments after 3-4 weeks after treatment.
Avoid strenuous exercise and warming of your face 7-10 days.
Laser treatments might break new collagen, which has been stimulated after the PDO Threads treatment, so please do not plan any laser treatments to these treated areas for the next 4 weeks.
There is potential for swelling, redness and bruising. But this will subside after a few days. However, you will be able to resume normal everyday activities in just a couple of days following the treatment. Also, Vitamin C assists in collagen production. We advise taking vitamin C supplements pre and post-treatment.
When I Will See Result & How Long Does The Result Last?
You will see the result immediately after the treatment, with a visible lift and textural improvement. The result will continue to improve over 3 months or so as new collagen forms around and between threads and providing further lifting and tightening. The threads are safely absorbed within 4 to 6 months. By month 7, the collagen present in the treated area increases by 100%.
How Much Does It Cost?
The cost will vary depends on the area of treatment. Please contact us anytime with your specific inquiry and we will be able to answer you a quote prior to your appointment. Also please don’t forget to ask about any promotions we are running.
