PDO Thread Lift Q & A

What is a PDO Thread lift?

A PDO Thread lift is a safe and convenient cosmetic technique designed to improve minor facial, neck, and body sagging and other early signs of aging. As the name implies, a PDO thread lift involves the placement of tiny threads into affected areas to lift and tighten sagging skin.

How does a PDO Thread lift work?

A Thread lift can smooth and tighten your skin for a more youthful appearance in several areas of your body, such as:

  • Cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Lips
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Inner thighs
  • Knees

Dr. Metelitsin uses a needle to make small incisions in the chosen area and to insert the Threads. She attaches the Threads to the skin and pulls them back to lift up your face. Tiny cones on the threads cause inflammation in the targeted areas; this inflammation stimulates collagen production, and collagen continues to grow around the threads.

What can you expect from a PDO Thread lift?

Dr. Metelitsin usually administers local anesthesia before the procedure, although sometimes this isn’t necessary. The Thread lift can take as little as 30 minutes or as long as two hours, depending on the number of threads inserted.

Because the Threads have lifted the skin, you’ll see the effects almost immediately. The threads are hidden in the skin so any scarring is invisible, and you’ll only need a day or two of downtime.

Since your skin is now producing new cells on its own, you will see continued results over time. A Thread lift can last anywhere from 18 months to several years; as the results begin to fade, you can repeat the procedure to maintain your new look.

What are the benefits of a PDO Thread lift?

While you might need more radical surgery for excessive aging, a PDO Thread lift is perfect for addressing minimal signs of aging. It has several advantages, including a much more reasonable cost. When compared to traditional surgery, a Thread lift involves:

  • Less risk
  • Quicker results
  • More convenience
  • Less discomfort
  • Less invasive technique
  • Shorter recovery time

As an added perk, you remain conscious during the procedure to monitor your new appearance. You may also combine a Thread lift with other cosmetic treatments for maximum results.

There’s no need to wait until your sagging skin requires major surgery. Call Marina Medispa to schedule a consultation, or book an appointment online today.
