PDO Threads: What Are They and What They Can Do
Previous thread lift options once involved surgery and had major side effects. However, the PDO Thread Lift has changed the game for this type of restorative procedure. Now it’s non-invasive, and as such, it’s become even more popular today for it’s ease of completion and beautiful results.
Details About the PDO Thread Lift
PDO Thread Lift tightens and lifts sagging skin tissues by inserting threads made of polydioxanone (PDO) deep into the skin. Once in place, they provide instant lifting, cellular renewal by collagen stimulation, neovascularization to improve the texture and wrinkles, and skin tightening which is done by contracting fat tissue. The threads absorb into the skin though the lifted appearance will continue anywhere from 3 to 6 months more thanks to the cellular
rejuvenation effects the treatment provides.
Safety and Side Effects
Unlike the old versions of this treatment, PDO Thread Lifts today are incredibly safe. They have fewer side effects than fillers. They are inserted by use of needles and do not require surgery. The threads are absorbed, unlike older thread lifting procedures so there are little dangers associated with breakage or infection.
Some mild swelling and soreness can occur up to 5 days post-procedure. The skin may also feel tight for up to 2 weeks. Even temporary dimpling in a very mild way can occur but will resolve in just a few days. More serious side effects are very rare but can include -in extreme cases- infection if not administered correctly.
What You Should Know About the PDO Thread Lift
There is very little downtime for the PDO Thread Lift. Some mild swelling and soreness is normal though. It’s best to keep away from alcoholic beverages, vitamin supplements, steam rooms, saunas, and heavy exercises for 2 days prior and 2 days following the procedure. Dental appointments shouldn’t be scheduled until 2 weeks post-procedure as they require an excessive stretching of the face due to opening wide for the dentist. Sleeping on the back allows swelling to subside and prevents adding pressure to the face which could cause the threads to misalign.
