The PDO (Polydioxanone) thread lift is a non-invasive treatment which lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using threads made of PDO. The threads are introduced into the deeper layers of the skin. Once introduced, the threads have 3 amazing effects on the skin:
The lifted facial contour will remain for about 12-18 months after procedure, due to the collagen stimulation effects. Four to Six months after the procedure PDO threads will disappear because they are absorbable. Your skin cells are stimulated to produce new collagen, and new blood vessels to improve skin microcirculation. At the same time, the PDO threads cause the fat tissue to contract and produce the skin tightening effect.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH PDO THREAD LIFT?
The PDO thread lift is very versatile, allowing practically all areas of the body to be treated, including the:
IS THIS RIGHT FOR ME?
The PDO thread lift procedure is designed according to what you want to treat, and which areas you want to concentrate on. PDO threads can be used for lifting, rejuvenation (improving skin texture and wrinkles), volumizing, and even reducing fat. Different threads are used for different purposes, so the possibilities are endless
HOW IS THE PROCEDURE?
PDO threads are inserted into the skin with sterile needles or cannulas. Once inserted, the barbed threads anchor to the skin and the practitioner contours the face. The excess threads are then cut off. Depending on the areas treated, the procedure may take 15-30 minutes to contour.
There is a slight discomfort during the procedure, but because of the improved techniques and MEDiTHREAD’s innovative needles, patients are experiencing less pain.
IS PDO THREAD LIFT SAFE?
This treatment is safe, and the side effects are, in fact rare which is what makes PDO threads so innovative. MEDiTHREAD PDO threads are inserted with needles and are absorbed in 4-6 months. MEDiTHREAD’s PDO threads have minimized if not eliminated any of the side effects associated with older thread lifting procedures, such as infection and thread breakage.
Expect some mild bruising, swelling, and soreness for 2 to 6 days after the procedure, and a mild sensation of tightness of up to 2 weeks. Temporary mild dimpling of the skin can also occur and resolves in a few days. Although side effects are extremely rare and in more serious cases removal of threads may be required in cases such as migration and extrusion. The face has a very complex anatomical structure intimate anatomical knowledge is required to perform a PDO thread lift well to avoid serious side effects such as infection. We advise practitioners to get well trained in PDO thread lift.
