What are PDO thread lifts?
PDO stands for polydioxanone, a type of surgical thread. PDO threads are used in cardiothoracic surgery because they absorb fully within a few months and don’t create scar tissue.
When applied to the face, PDO thread lifts tighten and lift sagging skin. Your provider introduces the threads into the tissues of your skin.
Results are noticeable immediately. The thread lift also stimulates collagen development, giving you long-term resilience and lift.
What can PDO thread lifts do for me?
A PDO thread lift is a noninvasive way to improve the look of aging skin. Your provider introduces the threads via injection, so there’s no blood loss, scarring, or long recovery time.
A thread lift gives your skin a visible lift in minutes. It also stimulates collagen and regulates blood vessels to enhance the skin's microcirculation, improving skin elasticity and overall texture. The threads also encourage the contraction of fat tissue to help tighten your skin.
You notice a reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Your facial contour improves, and large pores can shrink.
For a few months, the threads dissolve. Collagen has developed around them in the meantime, giving you a lasting improvement to your look.
Am I a candidate for a thread lift?
Consider a thread lift if you’re bothered by the signs of aging but aren’t quite ready to invest the time, money, and energy into a face-lift.
The thread lift helps improve the look of:
- Sagging jowls and jawline
- Stubborn facial wrinkles, including crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and lines around the mouth
- Lax neck tissue
- Sunken, lax tissue in the cheeks
- Creases around and under the eyes
- And various locations throughout the body
Your provider at Garcia Weight Loss Aesthetics & Hormone Therapy can let you know if a thread lift is right for your aesthetic concerns.
What types of thread lifts do you offer?
Your provider determines which type of thread lift is right for you. Nova PDO threads come in three forms: straight, barbed, or screw-like. Mint threads have tiny projections that contribute to the thread’s strength and effectiveness.
Each type of thread offers a different type and level of benefit. Your provider explains these to you so you can make an informed decision about your thread lift.
