PDO thread lift is the ideal non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift. This procedure uses PDO (polydioxanone) threads to lift and contour your facial features, making your skin look firm, tight, and youthful. PDO Threads Treat:
The treatment involves inserting biocompatible threads into the skin’s surface to lift the skin and fatty tissues, giving you an instant lift. The threads also stimulate collagen production to sustain the results for extended periods.
Smooth threads have a smooth surface without barbs and contours. They’re inserted into the skin in a hashtag pattern to increase blood circulation to the treatment area. This encourages your body to increase skin cell turnover and activate collagen production, thereby reversing the signs of aging. PDO smooth threads build a foundation for collagen production, paving the way for the gradual onset of results.
Lifting threads are barbed or cogged sutures that “hook” into the surrounding tissues. As such, when they are strategically inserted into the skin, they gather the skin and fatty tissues to produce a lifting action. As such, you notice an instant lift — your skin looks significantly smoother, firmer, and more youthful. Over time, PDO lifting threads also encourage collagen production, thus maintaining the lift after the threads have been absorbed.
Dr. Nily Abramovitz and Dr. Alla Agamov have nearly ten years of experience with the latest non-surgical aesthetic treatments. During your consultation, they discuss your cosmetic concerns and goals in a relaxing environment. They also assess your skin quality and review your medical history to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for PDO threads. If you’re deemed a suitable candidate, they curate the ideal treatment plan for you.
During a PDO thread lift Newton patients will have their faces cleansed and numbed with local anesthesia. Depending on the chosen treatment modality, the cosmetic doctor will insert smooth threads or lifting threads under the facial tissues in the targeted areas. This will provide an instant lift, though the degree of lift depends on the type of threads used. The treatment will conclude in 45 to 90 minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas.
PDO thread lift doesn’t involve downtime or an extended recovery period. You can resume your daily activities and work as soon as the treatment concludes, but you may experience mild redness, soreness, and swelling. The side effects subside in a day or two, and there are no scars or obvious signs of cosmetic work.
The timeline for observing results from PDO (Polydioxanone) thread lifts varies from person to person. Some immediate improvements in skin appearance can be noticed right after the procedure due to the physical lift created by the threads and the procedure's inflammation. However, the full effects of a PDO thread lift become more evident over the following weeks to months. This gradual enhancement is a result of the threads stimulating collagen production, leading to improved skin texture and tightness. Most individuals experience significant improvement within one to three months.
The results last one to three years, following which you can get a maintenance treatment. The duration of results is influenced by factors such as the type and quantity of threads used, the treatment area, and individual characteristics such as age and skin condition. It is advisable to consult with a qualified medical professional who can provide personalized guidance and set realistic expectations based on your unique circumstances.
PDO thread lift results typically last around 6 to 12 months, although this can vary from person to person. The longevity depends on factors like individual skin characteristics and the type of threads used.
Discomfort during a PDO thread lift is usually minimal and can be managed with local anesthesia. Some patients may experience mild soreness or swelling afterward, which typically subsides within a few days.
PDO thread lifts are generally safe and suitable for most individuals looking to address mild to moderate skin laxity and sagging. However, consulting with a qualified medical professional is essential to determine if it's the right option for your specific needs.
PDO thread lifts can be used to address various areas of the face, including the jawline, cheeks, brows, and neck, to achieve a lifted and rejuvenated appearance.
There is minimal downtime associated with PDO thread lifts. Some patients may experience temporary bruising, swelling, or redness, but these side effects typically resolve within a few days. Most individuals can resume their regular activities shortly after the procedure.
To maintain the results of a PDO thread lift, it's essential to follow post-procedure instructions provided by your medical professional. These may include avoiding strenuous activities and certain skincare products for a short period. Additionally, a healthy lifestyle and skincare routine can help prolong the benefits of the procedure.
