What Is PDO Thread Lift

Non Surgical Tread Face Lift

A thread face lift, particularly a PDO thread lift, can effectively address early signs of ageing, such as sagging skin. PDO Threads are designed to lift sagging skin and stimulate collagen production. Surgeons have safely used the material in surgical procedures for decades.

What Is PDO Thread?

PDO spring threads, composed of Polydioxanone—a biocompatible material frequently used in medical sutures—are an effective, absorbable thread option for skin tightening and rejuvenation.

How Does a Thread Face Lift Work?

There are two ways that a Thread Lift works:

At first, a mechanical lift of the skin can be accomplished, serving as a non-surgical facelift and giving the face an instantly lifted look.

Second, over the period of many months, the threads—which are embedded deeply in your skin—stimulate your body’s collagen making, hence, giving you a firmer, enhanced and youthful appearance that looks totally natural.

What Is The PDO Thread Face Lift Procedure?

During the PDO thread face lift procedure, a medical professional uses a thin needle or cannula to insert the threads into the skin. These threads create a scaffolding effect that lifts and supports sagging skin. Some types of lifting threads have small hooks that aid in uplifting the skin.  See video below

As the threads dissolve over time, they stimulate collagen production, enhancing skin tightness and elasticity.

The specific benefits of PDO threads include:

– The ultra-fine threads naturally break down within the body over 6-8 months, with results lasting about 18 months.
– The transparent material is invisible under the skin.
– The threads are cone-free, preventing tissue damage.
– They have an excellent safety record, the same type used in cardiac and other surgical sutures.

The PDO thread lift is designed to reposition the skin and trigger the body’s natural response to foreign objects by producing collagen and improving blood circulation, which tightens the tissue.

What Can Be Treated?

– Sagging facial skin
– Cheeks
– Forehead and brow area
– Around the eyes
– Neck, jawline, and jowls
– Deep wrinkles and folds
– Drooping mouth corners
– Lines around the mouth from smoking
– Body areas such as the abdomen and arms
– Lowered eyebrows

PDO Thread Lift FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any downtime associated with PDO thread lift?

Since no surgery is involved in a minimally invasive thread lift treatment, you do not need to expect significant downtime after your nonsurgical facelift. However, for the next few days, experts do advise the thread lift patients to take a break from all kinds of strenuous activities such as:

  • Jogging
  • Gym workouts 
  • Swimming

Be sure to strictly follow your doctor’s aftercare guidelines to avoid any unwanted complications following your thread lift.

What kind of results to expect after PDO thread lift?

One of the biggest benefits of thread lifts at CosmeDocs is the instant gratification in the form of facial skin rejuvenation. Unlike in a surgical face lift, thread lift results are natural looking and aesthetically pleasing.

Patients can expect to notice:

  • A lifted midface or lower face area
  • Contoured facial features
  • Softer look of nasolabial folds or laugh lines
  • Snatched and defined jawline
  • Tight and taut neck skin

Moreover, in a course of a few next months of your procedure, you can also expect to notice a firmer looking skin as thread lift stimulates collagen production.

How Many Thread Lifts Sessions Will I Need?

A single treatment usually delivers excellent results for most patients, such as an instant lift to drooping skin while boosting collagen and elastin to support loose skin. You can visit us six to nine months following your first treatment so that we can assess whether you require a second session. You shouldn’t need another procedure for three years after that.

Can Thread Lift be combined with other treatments?

The PDO thread face lift procedure is quite effective as an aesthetic rejuvenation treatment for men and women with sagging skin and loss of firmness. However, it cannot address loss of volume and wrinkle prevention or correction, which are common signs of aging skin.

Thread lifts are commonly combined with other injectable procedures, including anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, etc. PDO threading is often coupled with the following treatment options:

  • Since thread lifts are usually inadequate for treating Crow’s feet and frown lines around the brow and eyes, wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX® and Dysport® may be used with them to minimize their look.
  • A thread lift can be combined with a dermal filler, such as Restylane® or Sculptra®, to achieve a lifted effect more similar to a surgical procedure or liquid facelift.

How long does the thread face lift UK last?

PDO threads are not permanent. However, their effects last longer than many other noninvasive cosmetic treatments, such as hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, which last up to 6 months. 

The majority of the patients at CosmeDocs report that their results have lasted for up to 2 years. Nevertheless, many factors influence the longevity of the effects, such as:

  • Age of the patients
  • Condition and health of the patient’s skin
  • Material of the thread used for the thread lifts.

Is there any chance of a thread lift gone wrong?

Even though this non-invasive skin tightening and lifting procedure is low-risk with a safety profile and a proven efficacy record, there is always a slight chance it may not go as expected. Some of the possible complications that a PDO thread lift causes are as follows:

  • Infection
  • Slight facial asymmetry
  • Unwanted migration of threads
  • Difficulty in facial movement or expressions

You can always avoid such a scenario by doing your due diligence and researching the procedure, the doctor, and the clinic. It is best to choose a place that has a good reputation, tons of satisfied thread lifts before and after transformations, and good reviews.

Check out our thread facelift before and after photos and see how effective and safe this rejuvenation procedure is.

What Are The Possible Side Effects Of PDO thread lift procedure?

The PDO thread lift treatment has some temporary side effects, including bruising, numbness, mild swelling, and skin tenderness with slight facial asymmetry. These subside in a few days, but it is of vital importance that you choose a professional and experienced cosmetic doctor for the treatment to minimize the side effects.
