PDO Thread Lift

Have you considered getting a facelift but are concerned with scarring and a potentially lengthy downtime?  Then the PDO Threat Lift may be the solution for you.

The PDO Thread Lift is a revolutionary, non-invasive cosmetic procedure used to tighten sagging tissue.  Patients are given a topical numbing cream to reduce discomfort, then tiny incisions are made in the skin where the Polydioxanone (PDO) thread is introduced.  As the cannula is removed, the barbed end of the thread attaches itself to the underlying tissue, creating tension.  The skin is then swept in an upward motion, providing the immediate appearance of a facelift.  Once the desired lift is achieved, the excess thread is simply cut away and discarded—leaving you with a refreshed and youthful appearance in under two hours. 

Below are several advantages of the PDO Thread Lift procedure:

Minimal Down-Time:  The PDO Thread Lift can be completed in-office and allows patients to return to normal activities in a fraction of the time.  Patients may experience some swelling, soreness or minimal bruising, but symptoms should dissipate within 3-5 days.

Safety:  The PDO Thread Lift is a relatively safe procedure.  Since the threads are inserted via a needle (and not surgically), patients have reported fewer complications and a more desired outcome.

Improved Results:  The non-invasive aspect of the PDO Thread Lift offers greater flexibility.  Patients can target their cheeks, undereye area, crow’s feet or opt for a lift around their eyebrows.  Additionally, the threads are absorbed within 6-8 months and are replaced by your own collagen.  Over time, the end result is a more natural appearance, lasting 12-15 months.
