PDO threads are a revolutionary treatment that can help lift and tighten sagging skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance. These threads, made from biocompatible material, are inserted under the skin to provide support and stimulate collagen production, resulting in long-lasting and natural-looking results.

What is PDO threads?

PDO (polydioxanone) threads are a type of non-surgical treatment used to lift and tighten sagging skin. They consist of biodegradable threads made from a synthetic polymer material that is similar to dissolvable sutures used in medical procedures.

During a PDO thread treatment, the threads are inserted into the skin using a small needle or cannula. Once inserted, the threads create a supportive structure that lifts and tightens the skin. Over time, the threads are naturally absorbed by the body, but the lifting effect remains as new collagen is produced around the threads.

PDO threads can be used to treat a variety of areas, including the face, neck, and body. They are commonly used to lift and tighten sagging skin in the mid-face, jowls, and neck, as well as to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

PDO thread treatments are minimally invasive and require little to no downtime. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, and the results can last up to 18 months.


How should I prepare for PDO threads treatment?

If you are considering PDO threads treatment, there are several steps you can take to prepare:

  1. Consult with a qualified healthcare professional: Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure, it is important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional who has experience performing PDO thread treatments. They can assess your skin and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

  2. Avoid blood thinning medications: To minimize the risk of bruising and bleeding, it is recommended that you avoid taking blood thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and certain herbal supplements for at least two weeks before the procedure. Be sure to consult with your healthcare provider before discontinuing any medication.

  3. Avoid alcohol and smoking: Alcohol and smoking can impair healing and increase the risk of complications, so it is recommended that you avoid these substances for at least 24 hours before and after the procedure.

  4. Arrive with a clean face: It is recommended that you arrive for your PDO threads treatment with a clean face, free of makeup, lotions, and other products.

  5. Plan for aftercare: While PDO thread treatments are minimally invasive, there may be some mild discomfort and swelling afterward. Plan to rest and avoid strenuous activity for at least 24 hours after the procedure. Your healthcare provider may recommend certain aftercare products or techniques to help reduce swelling and promote healing.

  6. Be sure to follow any specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider to ensure a safe and successful PDO threads treatment.

PDO threads are generally considered safe when performed by a qualified healthcare professional with experience in the procedure. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and complications associated with PDO threads that you should be aware of before deciding to undergo the treatment.

Some possible risks and complications of PDO threads may include:

  • Infection

  • Bleeding

  • Swelling

  • Bruising

  • Nerve damage

  • Allergic reactions

  • Thread migration or breakage
