What is it?

PDO (Polydioxanone) Threading is a minimally invasive procedure that involves inserting fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small needles. These threads act as a scaffold, lifting and tightening the sagging skin and stimulating collagen production. Over time, the threads dissolve, leaving behind a firmer, more youthful complexion.

Why Should I Consider It?

PDO threading is ideal for individuals looking to achieve a more lifted and defined appearance without the downtime and risks associated with traditional facelift surgery. It's particularly effective for lifting the brows, cheeks, jawline, and neck. The procedure is also beneficial for stimulating collagen production, which improves skin texture, elasticity, and firmness.

What Can I Expect at My Appointment?

The procedure starts with a consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals and determine the areas to be treated. A topical numbing cream or local anesthesia is then applied to minimize discomfort. The PDO threads are inserted through small needles into the designated areas of the face or neck. The entire process typically takes 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the treatment's extent.

Downtime?

PDO threading involves minimal downtime. You may experience some swelling, bruising, or soreness in the treated areas, which usually subsides within a few days. Most patients can resume normal activities within 24 hours, although strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for about 2 weeks to ensure optimal healing.

Results and Longevity

Immediate lifting effects can be seen following the procedure, with results continuing to improve over the next 2 to 6 months as collagen production increases. The threads themselves dissolve within 6 to 9 months, but the collageninduced lifting and firming effects can last for 12 to 24 months. Maintenance treatments can help prolong the results.

Helpful Tips

Avoid dental appointments, and opening the mouth wide for 2-3 weeks post-treatment to ensure threads are not displaced. Sleep on your back and keep your head elevated for the first few nights to reduce swelling. Follow your practitioner's aftercare instructions closely, including avoiding makeup for a minimum of 24 hours and postponing other facial treatments for a specified period.
