Tell me about PDO Thread Lifts:

PDO (polydioxanone) thread lifts are a popular cosmetic procedure designed to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. The threads used in this procedure are made of biocompatible polydioxanone, commonly used in surgical sutures.

The threads are inserted into the skin using a fine needle or cannula, and once in place, they provide support to lift and tighten the skin. Over time, the threads stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that helps maintain the skin’s firmness and elasticity. As the threads dissolve, the new collagen helps to improve the skin’s texture and appearance.

The duration of results from a PDO thread lift can vary depending on the individual’s skin condition, age, lifestyle, and the number of threads used. Generally, results can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. However, it’s essential to remember that while the threads may dissolve over time, the collagen stimulation they initiate can continue to benefit the skin beyond the visible effects of the lift.

How to take care of your PDO Thread Lifts?

Taking care of your skin after a PDO thread lift is crucial to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of complications. Here are some general post-procedure care tips:

  1. Follow your provider’s instructions: Your healthcare provider will give you specific guidelines on how to care for your skin after the procedure. Follow these instructions carefully to promote proper healing and optimize results.
  2. Avoid strenuous activities: For the first few days after the procedure, avoiding vigorous exercise and activities that could strain the treated area is essential. This helps prevent excessive swelling and discomfort.
  3. Keep the treated area clean: Follow your provider’s recommendations for cleansing the treated area. Gentle cleansing with a mild, non-abrasive cleanser is typically advised to keep the skin clean without irritating it.
  4. Avoid excessive touching or rubbing: Refrain from touching or rubbing the treated area unnecessarily, as this can disrupt the threads and may increase the risk of complications.
  5. Use recommended skincare products: Your provider may recommend specific products after the procedure. These products can help support the skin’s healing process and promote optimal results.
  6. Protect your skin from the sun: Sun protection is essential to prevent damage to the skin and maintain your results. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, and limit sun exposure, especially during peak hours.
  7. Attend follow-up appointments: Schedule any appointments with your provider as recommended. These appointments allow your provider to assess your progress, address concerns, and make necessary adjustments.
  8. Be patient: It’s essential to be patient and allow your skin time to heal and adjust after the procedure. Results from a PDO thread lift typically improve gradually over several weeks as collagen production increases.
