PDO Thread Facelift Q&A

What is a PDO thread lift?

A polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift is a minimally invasive way to get the drastic results of full face-lift surgery. The procedure involves the insertion of several threads made of PDO, a strong material that eventually dissipates under your skin without intervention or removal. 

Surgeons use the same threads to suture injuries inside your body that are difficult to access for removal. The threads are barbed on the ends so they stay in place as your provider pulls them upward or back to lift your skin. 

The small damages that the threads cause to your tissues invoke a healing response. Your skin produces extra collagen fibers to provide structural reinforcement for your lifted features. 

At Rose Lavande Med Spa, the team assesses your facial features and asks about the changes you want to make. Then, they decide how to proceed with your thread lift. The outcome will make a statement without looking abnormal.

What results can I get with a PDO thread lift?

Over the years, your skin loosens and sags while the fat that gives your face plumpness slowly disappears. You can correct many of the folds and other features that cause you to look aged or tired with your PDO thread lift, including:

  • Droopy eyelids and brows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Under-eye bags
  • Sagging cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Nasolabial folds

The team might recommend getting other treatments around the same time as your PDO thread lift as part of your treatment plan. 

Since thread lifts have quick and uncomplicated healing times, you can enhance your results with Botox or skin treatments like microneedling.

How long does a PDO thread lift last?

The lifting procedure takes no more than an hour at the Rose Lavande Med Spa office. After your PDO thread lift, you’ll continue to look more awake and more youthful for a year or more. 

Despite the threads dissolving after just four to six months, the structural reinforcement provided by tissue and collagen growth around the threads stays in place for much longer. This is because it’s your own natural skin and tissues holding themselves up.

Moderate to severe facial sagging and wrinkles doesn’t have to involve surgery anymore. To find out if a PDO thread lift can improve your age-related appearance concerns, call Rose Lavande Med Spa or book a consultation online today.
