What are PDO Threads?
PDO threads are sutures made of a dissolvable material known as polydioxanone. They are often used in medical procedures because they are safe and compatible with the body, and they stimulate collagen production. Due to these benefits, they are a powerful tool for thread lifts, making the PDO thread lift procedure possible.
What is a PDO Thread Lift?
A PDO thread lift procedure involves inserting PDO threads under the skin with a small needle. Then, they are maneuvered to lift and tighten sagging areas of the face, neck, or body. Over time, the threads dissolve, leaving behind a scaffolding of new collagen that helps maintain the lift and tightness achieved through the procedure. The procedure is minimally invasive and requires little downtime, making it a popular option for those seeking a non-surgical alternative to traditional facelifts.
How Much Do PDO Thread Lifts Cost in Boston & Newburyport, MA?
The cost of your PDO thread lift treatment at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. Once we determine the treatment approach that is best for you, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We accept traditional payment methods and offer financing through CareCredit® for your convenience.
What is the PDO Thread Lift Treatment Like?
The first step in the PDO thread lift procedure is to apply a local anesthetic to the treatment area. This will help minimize any discomfort during the insertion of the threads. Once the area is numb, we’ll insert the PDO threads into the skin using a small needle or cannula. The threads are carefully placed in a way that will lift and tighten the target areas. After the threads have been inserted, we’ll trim any excess thread and massage the treated area to ensure that the threads are evenly distributed. The whole process takes 1-2 hours to complete.
Is There Downtime After a PDO Thread Lift?
While there may be some mild discomfort, swelling, or bruising after a PDO thread lift, there is typically minimal downtime associated with the procedure. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities within a day or two after the treatment. However, we will provide recovery instructions and restrictions, which may include avoiding strenuous exercise, certain skincare products, or makeup application for a period of time after the procedure. Overall, the minimal downtime associated with PDO thread lifts is one of the reasons why they are a popular option for those seeking a non-surgical alternative to traditional facelifts.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from PDO Threads?
Patients may notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of their skin after the PDO thread lift treatment. This is due to the lifting and tightening effect of the threads. However, the full effects of the treatment may take several weeks to several months to fully develop as the threads dissolve and stimulate collagen production. In general, the results of PDO thread lifts can last from 6 months to a year. However, individual results may vary. The longevity of the results may depend on factors such as the patient’s age, skin condition, and lifestyle habits, as well as the number of threads used.
