PDO Thread Lift

A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that helps tighten a person’s skin. Without the need for big incisions, unlike most facelift procedures, PDO thread lifting uses small needles to insert fine threads under the skin. These PDO threads are specially designed to anchor the sagging skin and lift it upwards. The threads also stimulate collagen production, which further diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

PDO Thread Lift Frequently Asked Questions

1What are PDO Threads?
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are thinner-than-hair medical grade absorbable threads that lift and tighten sagging skin tissues. These threads are implanted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small needles or cannulas. Once the threads are inserted, the skin looks rejuvenated, filled and lifted.
2What makes PDO Max different?
Our PDO threads are truly cleared as a PDO in cannula device. We are currently one of two companies in the U.S. that can make this claim. Our barbed threads are cut in such a way that gives maximum hold with a zero failure rate. Our training courses are the most extensive in the industry offering a full day, hands-on experience where you are inserting hundreds of threads and working on 4 full facelift patients. We are also the specification developer for all of our products meaning we design and create all of our own models that are manufactured for us, we do not just import another company’s product line.

4Who gets PDO thread lifts?
Anyone who is looking to correct lines, wrinkles, and other manifestations of aging in the face can be a good candidate for a PDO thread lift procedure. If a person’s sagging skin is under the chin and near the cheeks, the procedure is especially effective and beneficial for them. Ideal candidates are between the ages of 30-65.
5How long does it take to recover from the procedure?
Since PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure, the recovery time is quick. Most people who get this procedure done return to their normal activities after a day. Minor inflammation and bruising may occur in the first few days, but they usually resolve after two weeks.
6Does PDO thread lifting have any side effects?
If a PDO thread lifting procedure isn’t done by a professional, it may result in thread protrusion and puckering of the skin. These happen when the PDO threads aren’t properly implanted. This is why we offer such an extensive training program for our practitioners.
7How long do the results of a PDO thread lift last?
The PDO threads dissolve after six to nine months, but their effects can last up to two years, thanks to the production of collagen
