PDO threads provide a way to reduce the appearance of sagging, wrinkles, and fine lines that occur naturally over time. At Natura Medspa & Laser Center in Parkland, we offer PDO thread lifts for patients looking for a way to tighten their loose skin and rejuvenate the beauty of their face. A PDO thread lift can provide you with long-lasting and natural-looking results.
What Are PDO Threads?
PDO threads are a type of surgical suture made from a biodegradable synthetic polymer known as polydioxanone (PDO). PDO threads are an FDA-approved product that is compatible with human tissues so that they can be safely absorbed by the body over time without triggering an allergic reaction. PDO threads are often used for medical purposes. PDO threads are often used when performing cardiac surgery or for the treatment of gynecological disorders.
Using PDO Threads for Aesthetic Purposes
PDO threads are an excellent option for treating visible signs of aging like sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines because they are safe to use and help to strengthen and tighten the skin which provide long-lasting results. When PDO threads are inserted under the skin, they stimulate the production of collagen within the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that tightens and strengthens skin which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines and give the skin a tighter appearance.
What Is a PDO Thread Lift?
A PDO thread lift is a facial rejuvenation procedure that uses multiple precisely placed PDO threads to provide the facial tissue with more structure and support in order to tighten skin and reduce the appearance of aging. The PDO threads themselves actually lift the tissue for instantly visible results and the production of collagen stimulated by the PDO threads will provide further rejuvenation over time.
PDO threads can be used to address wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging across multiple areas of the face, like the:
- Under eyes
- Corner of the eyes
How a PDO Thread Lift is Performed
The area of the face being treated will be prepped and numbed. The PDO threads are inserted into the sub-dermal layers of skin using a very thin and hollow needle. The threads provide a layer of scaffolding under the tissue. The amount of threads needed varies based on what is needed to attain the patient’s desired results. No incisions are required, and the needle leaves no visible marks.
PDO Thread Lift Recovery
There may be some mild bruising and swelling around the areas where the PDO threads were inserted. Icing the affected areas can help to reduce swelling and over the counter medications can help with any discomfort that may be experienced. You should avoid any strenuous activities for a couple of days.
PDO Thread Lift Cost
The cost of a PDO thread lift varies as each procedure is customized to meet the unique aesthetic needs of the patient. Natura Medspa and Laser Center accepts all major credit cards and offers financing options for patients.
