Are you tired of sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines? Do you wish to look younger and rejuvenated? If yes, PDO threads may be just what you need! At Adair Family Clinic & Medspa, we offer this innovative treatment that can lift and tighten your skin, giving you a more youthful appearance.
What are PDO Threads?
PDO (polydioxanone) threads are a type of suture that is commonly used in surgery for wound closure. These threads are made of a biocompatible material that is absorbed by the body over time. When used in cosmetic treatments, PDO threads are inserted under the skin to lift and tighten the skin.
How do PDO Threads work?
PDO threads work by stimulating collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a protein that is responsible for skin elasticity, firmness, and texture. As we age, our collagen production slows down, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. PDO threads help to stimulate collagen production, thereby improving skin firmness and elasticity.
PDO threads also work by physically lifting and supporting the skin. The threads are inserted under the skin using a fine needle, and they create a lifting and tightening effect as they are tightened. The threads also act as a scaffold for the skin, supporting the tissues and giving a more youthful appearance.
What are the benefits of PDO Threads?
PDO threads have several benefits, including:
Non-surgical: PDO threads are a non-surgical treatment, which means there is no need for anesthesia or a lengthy recovery time.
Minimal downtime: After the treatment, you may experience some swelling and bruising, but this typically resolves within a few days.
Long-lasting results: The effects of PDO threads can last up to 12 months, depending on the type of thread used and the area treated.
Natural-looking results: PDO threads provide natural-looking results, enhancing your natural beauty without looking fake or overdone.
What areas can be treated with PDO Threads?
PDO threads can be used to treat various areas of the face and body, including:
Face: PDO threads can be used to lift and tighten the cheeks, jowls, neck, and eyebrows.
Body: PDO threads can be used to tighten loose skin on the arms, thighs, and abdomen.
How long does the PDO Threads treatment take?
The PDO Threads treatment typically takes between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated. After the treatment, you can return to your normal activities, but you should avoid strenuous exercise and facial massages for a few days.
Is the PDO Threads treatment painful?
The PDO Threads treatment is generally well-tolerated, and most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. Local anesthesia may be used to minimize any discomfort during the treatment.
