What is PDO Thread Lift?

PDO threads are an absorbable suture composed of polydixanone. Polydiaxanone (PDO), is a very safe material that is regularly used in heart surgeries. When placed within the appropriate dermal layer, the polydiaxanone stimulates your natural collagen production.These threads come preloaded in hypodermic needles to insert and appropriately place the thread. The threads absorb over a six month time span. During this process the polydiaxanone increases collagenesis for up to a full 12 months.

What Should I Expect after PDO Thread Lift?

After the procedure, it is recommend to avoid touching the area that was treated. Discomfort and soreness are common and over the counter Tylenol is recommended for the first few days. Swelling and bruising often occur. Since the procedure is minimally invasive and the manner in which the threads are placed, scarring is not typical, and infection rates are miniscule. Discomfort may continue for a week or two, but this depends on each individual person. The threads dissolve over six months, with collagen production up to a full year. Results of lifting and smoothing are visible on the day of treatment. Optimal results are seen a few months later as new collagen forms, further improving laxity and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Depending on each individual, their health and age, results can last between 1-2 years.

Who is PDO Thread Lift for?

Safe and effective to be placed almost anywhere, the PDO threads are particularly effective for treating the neck and jawline. As the lower face is difficult to treat with Botox and dermal fillers, the threads provide an opportunity to treat this area by lifting and smoothing saggy, flabby skin. Body areas such as above the knee, backs of arms, and the buttocks can be treated as well, tightening and smoothing without the use of surgery or general anesthesia.

What Does a PDO Thread Lift Treatment Consist of?

There are two treatment types, the NovaMesh and the NovaLyft.

The Nova Mesh consists of creating a meshed foundation under the skin, often in a crosshatch like manner, to serve as a base for collagen production. This helps to tighten the skin naturally over time.

The Nova Lyft provides more instant and dramatic results. Barbed PDO sutures provide grip under the skin to pull and lift sagging tissue. After insertion, the threads are pulled in a specific direction to reposition the tissue. Once positioned into the appropriate tissue layer, the PDO threads absorb and the polydiaxanone encourages the production of new collagen.
