PDO Thread Lift.
PDO (Polydioxanone) Thread Lift is a cutting edge new technique to lift and contour areas of the face and body that have begun to see the effects of gravity. Dr. Lisa Espinoza, Jaclyn Tyson, CRNP and J. Marie McCreesh, RN are now using PDO threads to lift not only facial laxity but also lifting neck, knee, breast and buttocks! PDO Threads are synthetic bio absorbable surgical sutures that we can now utilize in the medical aesthetic industry to successfully treat aging skin tissue. Having been used in cardiothoracic surgery (open heart surgery) for decades, PDO sutures are one of the safest to be injected into the body. Our skin fully absorbs the suture in four to six months allowing our body to heal, by naturally producing its own collagen and elastin around the suture.
Only a handful of practitioners in the US are trained in this procedure, single handedly pioneering the medical aesthetic industry to a whole new level. PDO threads are preloaded into a needle and delivered just underneath the skin in a variety of patterns to create collagen in precise area. PDO threads results are immediate proving discreet lifting to sagging areas of the face and body. Over a period of two to six months, new collagen grows around the suture providing further lift and tightening to the skin. Threads create a natural appearance and are yet another effective tool we now have in our arsenal of beauty magic to put the brakes on the aging process. Effects last 15-18 months however, some patients have reported seeing results last up to three years! Results will vary depending upon your age, skin quality, degree of skin laxity and number of threads used.
PDO Thread Lift provides practitioners with a wide range of treatment options to lift and tighten skin anywhere on the face and body and also improve acne scars and wrinkles. The embedded threads synthesize long lasting collagen and elastin in the treated area. PDO lifting threads can also be inserted over a period of 3 to 6 months or all at once depending on your budget and desired results.
No surgical procedure is without risk. Thread lifts can cause minor side effects such as infection, bruising, swelling, tenderness, numbness and slight asymmetry. After the procedure we will provide you with aftercare instructions to follow. Most patients experience some mild swelling and bruising, but this should settle quickly. Recovery time is usually less than one week, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for 2 to 3 weeks. During your consultation with one of our highly trained medical providers, you will be educated on all the benefits, risks and protocol for your first PDO treatment. We can’t wait to share what we’ve learned with you!
