What are PDO lifting threads?
PDO lifting threads are dissolvable sutures that can work from within the deeper layers of your skin to lift, tighten, and smooth the skin.
Additionally, PDO lifting threads stimulate collagen renewal under your skin. Collagen is the natural protein that helps maintain smooth, tight, and firm skin, but it decreases over time. Collagen replaces the PDO threads as they wear away to give you long-lasting results.
A PDO thread lift is a safe and reliable procedure with minimal downtime and maximum non-surgical results.
When might I need a PDO lifting threads treatment?
As you lose natural collagen and skin elasticity over the years, the skin loses some of its underlying support structure. That leads to sagging in areas like the:
- Nasolabial folds
With general facial sagging, your face can lose its overall shape, going from a round or oval shape to a square.
If you're unhappy with the overall sagging or drooping, or if you look older than you feel, a PDO thread lift could be right for you. PDO thread lifts are particularly well suited for people who want a facelift but don't want the incisions, bleeding, and long recovery time that surgery requires.
If you have significant facial sagging, a PDO thread lift along with Botox and dermal fillers (a liquid facelift) can improve your appearance. But, a PDO thread lift and liquid facelift can't remove excess skin. So, in that case, you may want to consider facelift surgery instead.
How do PDO lifting threads work?
A trained specialist at Brooklyn City Dental uses slim needles to move the PDO threads through your face in specific patterns to carefully contour and lift your skin. You typically need only local anesthesia for a PDO thread lift.
How long does a PDO thread lift last?
Longevity can vary widely depending on the degree of skin laxity, the type of PDO thread, and other individual factors. In general, results usually last 1-3 years. Some people may enjoy even longer-lasting results.
