WHAT IS PDO THREAD LIFT?
PDO Thread Lift contracts fat tissue resulting in instant skin tightening, promoting collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. Giving you enhanced skin texture and fewer lines and wrinkles!
WHAT CAN I EXPECT BEFORE TREATMENT?
Before treatment starts, we will apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment site. The needle used during this treatment is so fine it will not cause any pain.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
The PDO threads are inserted via blunt tip needles, called cannulas, or sharp-tipped needles. Once inserted into the appropriate layer of skin, they act as anchors as the skin is lifted upwards. Then, the excess threads are cut off.
ARE ALL PDO THREADS THE SAME?
There are several types of PDO threads, and each serves its own unique purpose. Depending on your aesthetic goals, your PDO provider may use one or many thread types during your anti-aging treatment.
WHAT TYPES OF PDO THREADS ARE THERE?
There are two primary types of PDO threads, These are floating non-barbed threads and floating barbed threads. Sub-classifications of non-barbed threads include braided threads and mono-filament threads. Sub-classifications of barbed threads include:
- Cutting barbs
- Molding barbs
IS THIS TREATMENT SAFE?
This treatment is completely safe. It is approved by the FDA for safety and efficiency. Hundreds of thousands of treatments have been performed and there are no reports of allergic reactions, sensitivities to the threads, or serious side effects or risks.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE TREATMENT?
Here are things you should avoid one to two days before treatment:
- Omega fish oil supplements
- Chinese medicine
- Vitamin E
- High-intensity workouts
- Steam rooms and saunas
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO AFTER TREATMENT?
Holding your mouth open for an excessive period of time can affect the results of your treatment soyou should hold off on any dental treatments for the first two weeks after your PDO thread lift. You’ll want to sleep on your back for the first couple of weeks as to not put too much pressure on one side of your face.
WHAT AREAS CAN A PDO THREAD LIFT TREAT?
Because a PDO thread lift is so versatile, it can treat virtually any area of the face. These include the:
- Jaw line
- Naso jugal folds
- Nasolabial folds
- Crow’s feet
- Undereye area
- Marionette lines
The cheeks and the lower face/neck region are the most commonly treated.
HOW LONG DO THE THREADS LAST?
That depends on a number of factors, including the thickness of the threads, the quality of the threads and your body’s rate of metabolism. Most clients find that the threads have dissolved within six to nine months.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Some results of the treatment, such as skin lifting and some of the contouring effects, are visible immediately after treatment. In fact, your skin may look tighter when you walk out our door!
