PDO Threads: Lift and Rejuvenate Your Appearance

Discover the transformative power of PDO threads, a minimally invasive treatment designed to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate your skin. This guide provides essential information about PDO threads, including FAQs, pre-treatment preparation, and post-treatment aftercare.


What Are PDO Threads?

PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are a type of absorbable thread used in aesthetic procedures to lift and tighten sagging skin. These threads stimulate collagen production, providing a natural lifting effect and improved skin texture. PDO threads are often used on the face and neck but can be applied to various areas of the body.

How Do PDO Threads Work?

During the procedure, PDO threads are inserted into the skin using a fine needle. Once inserted, the threads provide a scaffolding effect, lifting and supporting the skin. As the threads dissolve over time, they stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which enhances skin firmness and elasticity.

Is the Procedure Painful?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the PDO thread procedure. A local anesthetic is applied to the treatment area to numb the skin, making the process more comfortable. You may feel a slight sensation or pressure during the insertion of the threads.

How Long Does the Treatment Take?

The PDO thread procedure typically takes between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the areas treated and the number of threads used.

What Can I Expect Immediately After the Treatment?

After the procedure, you may experience some swelling, redness, and tenderness in the treated area. These effects are generally mild and should subside within a few days. You might also notice some minor bruising, which will gradually fade.

How Long Do PDO Threads Last?

The lifting and tightening effects of PDO threads can last between 6 to 12 months. The threads themselves dissolve over time, typically within 4 to 6 months, but the collagen stimulation continues to improve the skin’s appearance.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Common side effects include temporary swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection sites. Rarely, there may be minor complications such as infection or thread migration. Following aftercare instructions helps minimize risks and ensures optimal results.

Can I Return to Normal Activities After the Treatment?

Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, it’s advisable to avoid strenuous exercise and direct sun exposure for at least 24 to 48 hours to support healing and reduce the risk of complications.

Pre-Treatment Preparation

To prepare for your PDO thread treatment, follow these guidelines:

  • Consult with Our Specialists: Discuss your aesthetic goals and medical history during your consultation. Our experts will assess your suitability for the procedure and tailor it to your needs.

  • Avoid Certain Medications: Refrain from taking blood-thinning medications (such as aspirin) or supplements that can increase bleeding risks for at least a week before the treatment.

  • Inform Us of Any Health Conditions: Let us know about any allergies, medical conditions, or recent treatments to ensure the procedure is safe and effective for you.

Post-Treatment Aftercare

Proper aftercare is crucial for optimal results and recovery. Here are some key tips:

  • Avoid Touching or Rubbing: Refrain from touching or rubbing the treated area for at least 24 hours to avoid disrupting the threads.

  • Hydrate and Moisturize: Use a gentle moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and support healing.

  • Avoid Extreme Temperatures: Steer clear of hot showers, saunas, and intense heat for the first 24 to 48 hours.

  • Skip Makeup: Avoid applying makeup to the treated area for at least 24 hours to reduce the risk of infection.

  • Follow Post-Treatment Instructions: Adhere to any specific aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner to ensure the best outcome.
