FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE PDO THREADS LIFT TREATMENT?
PDO Mono Threads is a cutting-edge treatment that stimulates collagen production and fights the signs of aging for firmer, more youthful skin. PDO Mono It is a non-surgical, FDA-approved procedure that provides natural, long-lasting results. PDO Mono Threads are commonly used to treat sagging and poor-quality skin caused by collagen loss. The most sought after areas of treatment include: Lower Third Face, Cheeks, Accordion Lines (Smile Lines), Perioral (Lip Lines), Marionettes, Nasolabial Folds, Jawline, and Neck.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PDO THREADS?
PDO (polydioxanone) threads are made of a raw material that dissolves naturally over time. PDO Threads can be classified into three types: mono, cog, and screw threads. Smooth mono threads are used for collagen regeneration and a more natural lift. Cog Threads, also known as "barbed" or "anchoring" threads, provide physical support by pulling sagging skin upward and holding it in place. Screw threads are used to give the face volume while also providing lift. Overall, there is a higher risk of side effects with Screw Threads and Cog Threads, such as lumps, dimpling, or scar tissue. But there is no one fits all approach with PDO threads and your doctor will guide you in choosing the correct thread depending on your personal goals and skin requirements.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
Since PDO threads are a minimally invasive procedure, it can often be performed in under 45 minutes without needing to go under a scalpel. But the actual treatment time really depends on the amount of threading required, and the procedure can take anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the area to be treated. You should also consider that there is also an additional 20 minutes for numbing.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM THIS PROCEDURE?
Pdo thread lifts can be performed on any patient who needs tightening and skin improvement, or as a preventive procedure to prevent facial sagging. Best candidates are men and women in their 30's and above, who have mild to moderate sagginess, wrinkles, and lines in the forehead, face, and neck. Keep in mind that the treatment is not recommended for those with excessive sagging or loose skin, or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
WILL I SEE THE RESULTS IMMEDIATELY?
When we treat with Pdo thread lifts, we insert the thread into the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, which make up the skin's extracellular matrix. Full results require this induced collagen production to occur and focus on the area being treated. Although there may be some immediate improvement, because we have strengthened the tissue with a physical thread, best results can be seen around 3-4 weeks after the procedure.
