What Happens To Facial Skin When PDO Threads Wear Off?
In the never-ending quest to find more convenient, more effective, and longer-lasting facial rejuvenation treatments, more and more patients are turning to PDO thread lifting. This revolutionary procedure offers the unique opportunity to achieve almost immediate results that actually improve over time. But what happens after PDO threads dissolve? Use this helpful information from double board-certified physician Dr. Raj Singh and the award-winning team at Seven Heart Medspa in Las Vegas, NV to better understand how PDO thread lift works, how long your results may last, and what your skin may look like between treatments.
What are PDO threads?
Dissolving PDO threads are made of a fine, suture-grade material and have been used in a number of different medical procedures for many years. In more recent times, PDO threads have become a popular tool in the world of cosmetic medicine. During a PDO thread lift, which is often referred to as a “lunchtime facelift,” these tiny threads are inserted beneath the skin to lift, smooth, and tighten the area. Not only do PDO threads physically lift the skin, but they also work to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen for firmer, plumper, more youthful skin that will improve over time. Common features that can be enhanced with a PDO thread lift in Las Vegas include:
- Crow’s feet
- Under the eyes
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Lines around the mouth
- Drooping jowls
How does a thread lift work?
During your PDO thread lift at Seven Heart Medspa, which can typically be completed in under an hour, you will lie comfortably in one of our private patient rooms. A local anesthetic is used to help minimize any discomfort during the treatment. Once the skin has been cleansed, and the treatment sites have been marked, Dr. Singh will use a fine-gauge needle to insert tiny threads beneath the skin. The threads will be strategically adjusted to lift and tighten the skin, and Dr. Singh may utilize different types of PDO threads based on your particular concerns. Following treatment, you should notice an almost immediate visible improvement in your skin, though some redness, swelling, or bruising at the insertion sites is to be expected. As the body begins to ramp up its production of new, healthy collagen, your results will continue to improve. In most cases, patients are able to resume their normal daily activities right after treatment, with the exception of strenuous physical exercise.
How long does a PDO thread lift last?
On average, PDO threads take about 6 – 9 months to fully dissolve, though this can vary somewhat depending on the type of threads used, how quickly the patient’s body metabolizes the threads, and other factors. During your initial consultation, Dr. Singh will help give you a better idea of how long you may expect your PDO thread lifting results to last.
What will my face look like after PDO threads dissolve?
You may be pleasantly surprised to learn that even after the threads have dissolved, your skin may still appear firmer, tighter, and more youthful than it did before your thread lift! This is due to the collagen-boosting effects of PDO threads. However, repeat treatments will likely be needed 1 – 2 times per year to maintain the lifted appearance that is achieved with PDO threading. Additionally, many patients take advantage of injectable dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers, nonsurgical skin tightening, and other facial rejuvenation treatments to preserve their stunning new complexion between thread lifts.
