PDO Threads Q&A

What are PDO threads?

PDO threads are fine, absorbable sutures made of polydioxanone, a dissolvable and biocompatible material. The threads are strategically inserted beneath the skin to lift and tighten sagging areas. They also stimulate collagen production. Therefore, when they dissolve, they leave naturally enhanced features.

Collagen is your skin’s primary protein. It provides your skin with elasticity, structure, and resilience. As you age, collagen production naturally declines, leading to sagging and thinner skin. 

What areas can PDO threads effectively target?

PDO threads target various areas of the face, including the forehead, cheeks, jowls, and neck. They effectively address loose skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.

PDO threads provide a subtle and natural lift without invasive surgery.

How long do the results of a PDO thread treatment last?

How long the effects of PDO thread injections last depends on many factors, including your age and the area treated. People typically experience improvements for several months, with younger patients enjoying improvements for 3-4 years.

Although the threads gradually dissolve, their initial lifting and collagen-stimulating effects persist, contributing to sustained skin rejuvenation.

What is it like to get PDO threads?

When you arrive for your PDO thread treatment, you relax in a chair while your technician cleanses your skin. Your provider uses a needle to strategically insert the threads just beneath the skin. 

The process is quick, with minimal discomfort. You can resume normal activities shortly after your procedure. 

Is downtime required following PDO thread injections?

PDO thread injections involve minimal discomfort and require little to no downtime. You may experience mild swelling or bruising, which usually resolves within a few days.

Who is an ideal candidate for PDO thread treatments?

PDO threads are a good choice if you’re experiencing mild to moderate sagging and want to achieve a subtle lift without surgery. Schedule a consultation at our comfortable office to find out how PDO threads align with your aesthetic goals.
