PDO Thread Lift

Now offered at Seaside Medical Practice

Introducing . . .

The Non-Surgical Facelift

Touted as the “non-surgical facelift”, a PDO Thread Lift can help you achieve a more youthful
appearance with minimally invasive PDO (polydioxanone) sutures, which lift and reposition sagging skin.

The threads are placed strategically to lift the face, jowls, neck or other areas of the body.

PDO Max threads also plump the skin and increase collagen production as they dissolve over
a period of months. The procedure is done right in the office under local anesthetic.

WHY PDO?

Research has shown that PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, which encourages the production of new collagen in the skin.

A lifted appearance can be seen immediately following the treatment; however, the results will improve in the following days and weeks as the PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, which in turn produces collagen.

The overall texture of the skin is improved; it becomes thicker, tighter and firmer and other skin issues like open pores, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are PDO Threads?
PDO threads are a type of absorbable suture material that is available in different textures (mono, cog, and screw threads). Mono threads have a smooth texture and are used to achieve basic skin tightening. Cog threads have a barbed texture that promotes collagen production and provides a more dramatic lifting effect. Screw threads are typically 2 intertwined threads used to achieve more volume in the areas being treated.
How are PDO Threads used to overcome sagging facial skin?
Unlike the case for traditional surgical facelifts, there is no need for sedation or general anesthesia. Local anesthetic is applied, then a special needle is used to insert the threads beneath the skin surface, lifting it as desired. The typical time for a single outpatient procedure is 45 minutes to an hour. You can then resume your normal activities within one day with some inflammation and swelling lasting about a week. It takes up to 6 months for the body to fully absorb the PDO threads.
How long to the effects of PDO Threads last?
Follow-up treatments may be needed for some people in 6 to 9 months, then another one is typically not needed for another 3 years or so.
What is the downtime for a PDO Thread Lift?
The procedure is a little more involved than traditional cosmetic treatments. In order to reduce pain and inflammation you should take an over the counter pain reliever such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen. There might be a period of time where you experience tenderness and will have a hard time sleeping or chewing for a few days. That will fade and you will be back to normal within a week
