PDO Threadlift is a non-surgical procedure that lifts and tightens loose, sagging skin. The synthetic fiber PDO, or polydioxanone, is used in general surgeries and cardiology. When used in aesthetic applications, it lifts sagging tissue and stimulates collagen production. PDO induces lipolysis–a decline in adipose tissue– making it an effective treatment option for the body and face. Contact us at Servicios Quirurgicos del Caribe in Mayaguez for more information!
About PDO Threadlifting
Polydioxanone threads, one of the safest materials to implement in the body, are used in this treatment. These small threads are just a few centimeters long and can be used in many regions across the body. They are inserted with the help of a blunt cannula after creating a very small insertion beneath the skin.
PDO uses the same material used in many surgical procedures, but the advantage of PDO Threadlift is that no incisions are required. General anesthesia is not needed and under a local anesthetic, the patient is awake and able to speak with our team members about their comfort during the procedure. PDO Threadlifting uses biodegradable, non-allergenic threads that naturally dissolve within the skin over a specified period of time. Collagen production continues after the procedure and the tightening effects last for the long term.
Where Can PDO Threadlift Be Done?
PDO Threadlift can address skin laxity and wrinkles across the face including:
- Nasolabial folds
- Skin furrows
- Forehead or brow laxity
- Marionette lines
- Sagging around the edges of the face
How Does It Work?
Contact your physician for a personalized consultation. Pictures will be taken at that time of the target area. Your doctor will then decide on the best treatment plan for your individual situation.
If you are a good candidate for PDO Threadlift, the area will first be numbed with a local anesthetic and a topical cream. The procedure takes 30 to 60 minutes. The doctor will use a micro-needle or a cannula depending on what is being done. No incisions are required and there is minimal risk of scarring. The results can be seen immediately, but it will take at least 6 months for the full effect to take place once the generation of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin occur.
The Results Are In
PDO Threadlift stimulates elastin and collagen production as it lifts sagging tissues and muscles. This treatment improves the texture of your skin and also decreases age lines to create a slimmer jawline with firmer and tighter skin.
