PDO Thread Lift

What Are PDO Threads?

Medical Aesthetics provides the PDO thread lift in Evergreen. PDO threads are surgical threads made of Polydioxanone, a synthetic, biodegradable compound generally used to close incisions after surgeries. It’s a safe material that’s easily absorbed by the body. This material can also be used for PDO thread lift, a non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation. During a PDO thread lift, the PDO threads are carefully inserted underneath the facial skin tissues to provide an instant lift to your features. This treatment enhances your facial contours while softening the fine lines and wrinkles.

What Are Liquid PDO Threads?

Liquid PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are a cosmetic treatment used for non-surgical facial rejuvenation and skin tightening. Unlike traditional solid PDO threads, liquid PDO is injected into the skin, stimulating collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production, which improves skin firmness, elasticity, and texture. This method offers a minimally invasive option for enhancing volume and achieving natural-looking results with minimal downtime, making it a popular choice for those seeking subtle, yet effective skin rejuvenation.

What Do PDO Threads Treat?

  • Fine lines and wrinkles on the face
  • Loss of facial volume in the cheeks and jawline
  • Sagging cheeks and skin
  • Loss of facial definition
  • Hollows under the eyes

What Are My PDO Thread Treatment Options?

Lift Threads

PDO lift threads have tiny barbs along the surface, making them ideal for lifting purposes. When placed underneath the facial tissues, the tiny barbs hold onto the skin and fat tissues and suspend them upwards, making your sagging cheeks look fuller. The results are instantaneous and dramatic. Over time, the PDO threads encourage collagen production, which further boosts the results. The results persist even after the PDO threads are absorbed by the body.

Smooth Threads

PDO smooth threads are completely smooth, i.e., there are no rough surfaces or barbs. They’re placed in a criss-cross pattern underneath the skin with the primary goal of collagen growth. Smooth threads also provide mild lifting results, but their true results appear after several weeks or months once your body produces new collagen fibers. Over time, the smooth threads are absorbed by the body, and your face looks significantly younger because of the increased collagen reserves.

How Is the PDO Thread Lift Performed?

The aesthetic technician carefully examines your facial features, discusses your goals, and reviews your medical history. Based on the evaluation, they determine if you’re a better candidate for lift threads or smooth threads. During the treatment, your facial skin is cleansed, and a numbing gel is applied to minimize discomfort. The aesthetic technician carefully inserts PDO threads into the targeted areas in your face to provide an instant lift. Your PDO thread lift in Evergreen should last an hour.
