Thread lifting is a minimally invasive procedure using biodegradable absorbable sutures to treat skin laxity and texture, while lifting and stimulating collagen production. This in turn leads to skin tightening and smoothing wrinkles. Thread lifting is considered a low-risk procedure and results may last 12-18 months depending on the type and number of threads used. There is minimal recovery time with this treatment and side effects may include swelling, redness, or bruising to the treated area.
A PDO (polydioxanone) thread lift is an FDA approved minimally invasive procedure that helps tighten and lift sagging areas of your face by using dissolvable sutures. This process helps stimulate collagen- which is an important protein that helps keep the skin looking healthy and youthful. The sutures help reposition sagging skin for a youthful and refreshed rejuvenation. The procedure takes about one hour to complete and there is minimal to no scarring, with short downtime so daily life can be resumed within 24 hours of treatment. Results from threads are immediate and you can combine this procedure with other treatments. PDO threads are one of the best options for those wanting to address mild to moderate signs of aging.
