PDO threads in Hollywood are a non-surgical therapy used to restore a more youthful appearance to the face. PDO threads are injected into the skin to non-surgically lift and sculpt the tissues, offering results comparable to those of a facelift—no downtime needed.
What Are PDO Threads?
PDO threads are made of polydioxanone, a medical-grade suture material. These sutures are FDA-approved and have been used for many years in the medical field.
PDO threads are extremely fine and can be inserted into the targeted parts of the face with a very small needle. PDO threads are injected deep into the dermis. These threads are classified into two main types: barbed and smooth.
Both types serve to stimulate collagen and elastin formation, which helps to tighten and firm the skin. Barbed PDO threads are perfect for physically elevating sagging skin. Smooth threads, on the other hand, are only used if the areas of the face to be treated do not require lifting.
Are PDO Threads
Right for Me?
The PDO thread lift treatment may be an option for people who want to avoid surgical procedures and reverse the onset of facial aging. Overall, the procedure is a good choice for anyone who wants to tighten sagging skin and enhance the texture of their skin.
PDO thread lifts can be used to treat mild to severe sagging in the face and below the chin or jawline. This process can also treat fine wrinkles. Patients must be in generally good health and must have reasonable treatment expectations.
What to Expect During the Procedure
PDO thread procedures are convenient because they only take 15 to 30 minutes. A topical numbing agent or a local anesthetic will be administered to the treatment region prior to initiating therapy. The needle used in this treatment is so fine that it allows for a comfortable treatment.
Once the anesthetic has taken effect, your PDO thread therapy will begin. Cannulas with blunt-end needles are used to insert PDO threads. After being implanted into the correct layer of skin, the barbed threads act as anchors while the skin is elevated upwards. The extraneous threads are then cut.
The method used in PDO thread treatment is very low-risk, and the FDA has approved it for safety and efficacy. You will be able to leave the facility within minutes after the treatment.
PDO Threads Aftercare
You will be advised to not scratch your face in the week following your PDO thread treatment in order to avoid accidentally displacing the thread. During the first few weeks, you should not bite your lips, smoke, or drink through a straw.
Strenuous exercise and sauna sessions should be avoided for one to two weeks following your PDO threads treatment. It is also strongly advised that you sleep with your head elevated on a cushion to avoid rolling onto your face in the middle of the night. It is important to refrain from sleeping on your side.
