A PDO thread lift is designed to subtly lift the facial features to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while encouraging collagen production for more volume in the treated areas. PDO threads come in a variety of textures for customized treatments.
Who is the ideal candidate for a PDO thread lift procedure?
The ideal candidate for a PDO thread lift is an individual with early signs of aging. A PDO Thread Lift is not recommended for more severe signs of aging, those with excessive sagging or loose skin, or those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
What is the average recovery associated with a PDO thread lift procedure?
The average recovery time after a PDO thread lift procedure is 24 hours of rest followed by light activity. Two to three weeks following the procedure strenuous activities may be restarted. A soft or liquid diet, and limited facial movements are advised for a few days.
What are the potential side effects of a PDO thread lift procedure?
Possible side effects of a PDO thread lift include skin puckering, insertion site infection, bruising, soreness, and swelling.
What can someone expect from the results of a PDO thread lift procedure?
The results of a PDO thread lift procedure evolve over months. The thread dissolves leaving an intact collagen fibrous protein matrix. The results of the PDO thread lift change with aging, sun, use, and gravity. Maintenance procedures are recommended every 18 months.
