PDO Threads: A Non-Surgical Face Lifting Treatment

PDO Threads: A Non-Surgical Face Lifting Treatment

Curious about how celebrities manage to look so good without any downtime? Uncover the secret to a more youthful face with PDO Threads, a cutting-edge treatment that can completely transform your appearance without the need for surgery. 

What are PDO Threads?


PDO Threads are a type of non-surgical cosmetic and aesthetic treatment that can help lift and tighten sagging skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and improve overall skin texture. These threads are made of a biocompatible material called polydioxanone (PDO), which is commonly used in surgical sutures.

During the PDO Thread procedure, thin threads are inserted under the skin using a small needle. These threads work by stimulating collagen production and providing structural support to the skin. As the threads dissolve over time, they leave behind a matrix of new collagen fibers, resulting in firmer and more youthful-looking skin.

PDO Threads can be used to target various areas of the face, including the jawline, cheeks, neck, and can even be used to slightly lift and contour the nose. The procedure is minimally invasive and typically requires little to no downtime, making it a popular choice for those looking to improve their appearance without undergoing surgery.

How PDO Threads Work?


PDO Threads work by creating a lifting and tightening effect in the treated area. Once the threads are inserted under the skin, they provide immediate support and lift to sagging tissues. This can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore youthful contours.

Additionally, the presence of the threads stimulates the production of collagen, a protein that is essential for maintaining the skin's elasticity and firmness. As the threads dissolve, the new collagen fibers that have been formed help to further improve the skin's texture and overall appearance.

PDO Threads can also be combined with other cosmetic treatments, such as dermal fillers, cellular treatments, or Botox, to enhance their effects and achieve optimal results. Our expert team at OhZone Medical will be able to recommend the best treatment plan for your specific needs and goals.

Benefits of PDO Threads


PDO Threads offer several benefits for those seeking a non-surgical solution for improving their skin's appearance. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Lifts and tightens sagging skin: PDO Threads provide immediate support and lift to sagging tissues, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles: By stimulating collagen production, PDO Threads can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles - meaning the benefits only get better over time.
  • Improves skin texture and tone: The new collagen fibers formed as a result of the PDO Thread procedure can improve the overall texture and tone of the skin.
  • Minimally invasive with little to no downtime: Unlike surgical procedures, PDO Threads require minimal downtime and are performed in a clinic setting. 
  • Natural-looking results: PDO Threads provide natural-looking results, enhancing your features without looking overdone or artificial.


The PDO Thread Procedure


The PDO Thread procedure is typically performed in a clinical setting by a trained healthcare provider. Here's what you can expect during the procedure:

1. Consultation: Once you book your initial consultation, the provider will assess your skin condition and discuss your goals to determine if you are a suitable candidate for PDO Threads.

2. Preparing the treatment area: The treatment area will be cleaned and numbed using a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

3. Inserting the threads: Using a small needle or cannula, the PDO Threads will be inserted under the skin in the predetermined areas. The number and placement of the threads will depend on your specific treatment goals.

4. Post-treatment care: After the procedure, you may experience some mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort, which is normal. Aftercare documentation will be given to you to follow to ensure a proper healing process.

5. Results and follow-up: The results of PDO Threads are typically visible immediately, with further improvements over the following weeks as collagen production continues. You will want to schedule a follow-up appointment to assess your progress and make any necessary adjustments.

It's important to follow all post-treatment instructions provided to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of complications.

PDO Threads: Before and After


PDO Threads can provide noticeable improvements in the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles. Here are some before and after considerations:

Before the procedure, it's important to have an initial consultation, with a well qualified provider to discuss your goals and expectations. They will assess your skin condition and determine if PDO Threads are the right treatment option for you.

After the procedure, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort in the treated area. These side effects are temporary and should subside within a few days to a week.

The results of PDO Threads are visible immediately, with further improvements over time as collagen production continues. The duration of the results can vary depending on factors such as individual skin characteristics and lifestyle factors.

To maintain the results of PDO Threads, it's important to follow a good skincare routine, protect your skin from excessive sun exposure, and avoid bad habits such as smoking or excessive alcohol consumption that can accelerate skin aging.

Overall, PDO Threads can be an effective non-surgical solution for achieving a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
