PDO Threads

microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, lip filler, cosmetic tattoo, anti wrinkle injection

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are absorbable sutures inserted underneath the skin in which gradually dissolve and are replaced by a collagen matrix that helps plump and lifts the skin. There will be a general tightening of the skin once performed, followed by rejuvenated and more youthful skin in 8-12 weeks and ongoing results for up to 6 months. PDO thread lifting can help reduce fine lines, slow down the signs of aging, and contour the jawline and neck area. If you want to improve your skin texture and quality and reduce the sagging of your skin, PDO threads is what you are looking for.

Treatments available for:

- Forehead - Frown - Crows Feet - Undereyes - Submental (double chin area) - Jawline - Neck - Any area where you want to improve skin texture and tightening

What are the side effects and complications? Is it painful?

There will be some swelling for up to 2 days, as well as some bruising which resolves with time. Your skin will feel slightly tender for a few days, and there is a very rare chance of infection. The treatment is very comfortable and is very easily tolerated with numbing cream applied 45-60min prior to procedure.

When will I see results and how long do they last?

You will see a tightening of the skin right after treatment, followed by lifted and rejuvenated skin at around 8-12 weeks, and ongoing results for up to 6 months. Your fine lines will tighten and improved during this period, along with more contouring in your jawline, and lifting in your neck and double chin area. Results usually last for up to 12-18 months (individual results vary), with maintenance treatments recommended every 8-12 months.

What are the post-care instructions involved?

As always to remain out of the sun to slow down signs of aging, and to monitor for any signs of infection or concern. Adhering to your regular skincare routine with active ingredients is highly recommended to further improve and maintain results. Ice packs can be applied to reduce swelling and bruising.
