What are PDO threads?

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are dissolvable strands that can be placed beneath your skin to elevate it and the underlying tissue. They help your skin build more collagen, which is a protein that increases your skin’s firmness. Many people opt to use PDO threads in their faces as a type of nonsurgical facelift, but you can also apply them to your neck, buttocks, or abdomen. 

You can see the results of a PDO thread lift immediately, and thanks to the collagen that develops around the threads, those results can last for months or even years. Some PDO threads are smooth and need to be applied periodically, while others that are barbed or anchored can offer results for 18-24 months. 

What are the results of a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift can produce natural-looking results without the hassle and cost of surgery. The threads lift and tighten your skin while the collagen that develops, as a result, makes your skin firmer and more youthful. 

A few possible results of PDO thread lifts include:

  • Less prominent wrinkles
  • Fewer jowls and other sagging areas
  • More lifted buttock
  • Fewer fine lines
  • Smoother skin texture

The experienced team at Micari Aesthetics has an eye for detail that allows for stunning, individualized results using PDO threads. 

How long does PDO thread lift recovery take?

Following your PDO thread lift, free your schedule for the rest of the day so you can rest. Avoid strenuous activities for a week or two as the puncture points need time to heal. 

During your recovery period, you might experience some side effects in the treated area, such as redness, discomfort, and the sensation of tightness. If you want to prolong your results, consider applying sunscreen daily to protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays and revisiting Micari Aesthetics about six months after your treatment to follow up with the team about your results. You can also repeat the treatment as desired. 

If you want to lift and firm your skin with PDO threads, call Micari Aesthetics or book a consultation online today. The team looks forward to working with you.
