PDO Thread Lifts | What Are They, And Should You Try Them


If you have ever looked in the mirror and contemplated a little nip here and a tuck there but do not like the idea of an invasive procedure, PDO thread lifts may be just what you are looking for. A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can dramatically improve your appearance with little downtime or expense. Here's what you need to know.

What Is a PDO Thread Lift?

PDO, or polydioxanone, thread lifts are a non-surgical way to tighten loose skin around the face and neck area. It is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses absorbable sutures. It's sometimes referred to as a 'lunchtime facelift' because it takes less than the average lunch period to have one.

As the name implies, a PDO thread lift involves inserting small threads underneath the skin to lift it up from below. The threads are made of polydioxanone and act like mini scaffolds that support the skin. The insertion process creates micro-injuries, which trigger your body's natural healing process. Your body heals itself by producing collagen at the site of an injury. Collagen plumps, heals, and tightens the skin. So, while the thread creates the initial lift, your body does the rest.

What Are the Benefits of a PDO Thread Lift?

There are many benefits of a PDO thread lift, including:

  • Little to no downtime. PDO thread lifts require no surgery or major downtime. Some people may experience slight redness or bruising, but this fades quickly.
  • Safe. The procedure can be completed quickly and without general anesthesia, which makes it extremely safe and at low risk for infection or other complications associated with invasive cosmetic surgery.
  • Less expensive. PDO thread lifts are outpatient procedures. Therefore, it is much less expensive than other procedures, like facelifts or liposuction.

How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last?

While some of the results you get from a PDO thread lift are immediate, the changes to your appearance will be more dramatic once your body starts producing more collagen. On average, you can expect your PDO thread lift to last about a year with proper maintenance and skin care routines.

PDO thread lifts are an excellent option for anyone looking for a simple yet effective way to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin without having to undergo surgery or spend too much money. If you have been considering your options and want quick results without the risks associated with surgery, then a PDO thread lift could be just what you need.

A Healthy Diet is Important for Healthy Skin and Hair

I was blessed with healthy, thick hair and perfect skin as a young girl. I went to college out-of-state, and I soon started to get acne and my hair started thinning. Everyone told me that it was likely due to stress, but to be honest, I loved college and found most of my first-year classes pretty easy. During my first summer home I put two-and-two together: my eating habits changed drastically at college. My mother always fed us very healthy meals, and my eating habits at college were so bad that I even ate cookies for breakfast sometimes! I found out my hair loss was due to lack of healthy vitamins in my diet and my skin problems were also caused by my poor diet. I created this blog to help other learn how their health, skin, and are all connected, and I hope you can learn a lot here!
