PDO Threads are a great alternative to a facelift or neck lift or any major skin lifting surgeries. This minimally invasive treatment helps lift the skin and has little to no downtime. The PDO threads are in fact PDO sutures, an absorbable suture that is flexible and durable.
During the procedure, the treatment area will be marked and numb. More than one thread can be used for one area. The PDO threads are attached to a long cannula and pushed through the tissue beneath the skin. Once the thread is perfectly placed, it will be released and the cannula removed. This process can be repeated with more threads until the desired lift has been achieved. At a minimum, two threads need to be used per area. The threads will lift the skin, but will not fix extensive skin laxity. In some cases, it will help lift the skin but not as much as actual surgery.
On average the results last for 6 to 9 months. Most people are a candidate. The recovery is very minimal. You may experience swelling and bruising. Exercising should be avoided for about one week.
