PDO thread itself has been used safely for decades in a variety of applications, such as treating gynecological conditions or closing incisions after medical procedures. PDO thread lifting is a revolutionary new treatment in the field of aesthetics, and there are a few things you might be pleased to discover about using PDO threads as a cosmetic treatment. Read on to discover how Youthology Medical’s PDO thread lift can be used to help you achieve younger-looking skin.
What Are PDO Threads?
PDO (polydioxanone) threads are a type of biodegradable suture made from a complex sugar molecule. This safe material has been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular procedures for over 30 years. The PDO threads are inserted into the skin to gently lift and support the tissue, returning it to its original position and giving it a more defined angle.
This procedure is almost painless and provides almost instant results. Additionally, it stimulates collagen production in treated areas such as the face, neck, buttocks, knees, and arms. The threads are slowly absorbed by the body over 6-8 months, but the effects can last up to a year. The PDO thread is replaced by the body’s new collagen, providing long-term results. This procedure gradually improves the tone and firmness of the skin over time.
How Does Our MINT PDO Thread Treatment Work?
At our clinic, we offer a wide range of treatments to restore a natural and youthful appearance. MINT, our popular beauty treatment featuring the very latest in innovative Korean technology, contains PDO threads that are absorbed by the body and stimulate collagen production over time.
PDO Threads can be combined with other treatments to take advantage of the best synergy each offers. Our clients can fight wrinkles with neuromodulators, restore volume with dermal fillers, improve skin texture with laser treatments, and treat sagging skin with PDO threads. By choosing Mint Threads, patients can experience:
- Fine lines and wrinkles that are smoothed and softened
- Reduced appearance of wrinkles
- Loose skin is tightened and repositioned
- Reshaped youthful silhouette
- Softer, subtler signs of aging
What Can I Expect From My PDO Thread Lift?
PDO threads are a minimally invasive treatment that requires only local anesthesia and takes an average of 1 hour to complete. Results of this procedure are visible immediately, with improved results over time due to less swelling, redness, and bruising.
Patients may feel pressure during the insertion of the threads but should experience minimal pain. After the treatment, there is no need for downtime and normal activities can resume immediately, though more vigorous activities such as sports should be avoided for up to a week.
This low-risk procedure carries no risk of scarring, severe bruising, or bleeding and is an affordable option for those looking to enhance their appearance. Common side effects may include soreness, easy bruising, swelling, and mild discomfort. Contact your doctor if you experience other complications or if the side effects persist for a long time.
At Youthology Medical, we strive to provide minimally invasive treatments to our clients to maximize results. By combining PDO threads with our range of non-surgical treatments, we can help you achieve positive changes in appearance without the lengthy recovery times typically associated with plastic surgery. Depending on your aesthetic goals, Dr. Grobman and our team will create the right treatment plan for your needs.
