What is a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift involves placing special threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO), a biodegradable material, inserted beneath the facial skin. The thread is inserted with a very thin, specially designed tubular needle that allows the placement of the thread. Once placed under the skin, the thread anchors to the surface with tiny barbs, lifting the skin and tissue to restore it to its former, youthful position.

How does a PDO thread lift work?

A PDO thread lift is one of our most popular procedures at Beauty IQ, as it produces remarkably natural-looking results. An added benefit of this procedure is the body's response to the thread. Your body naturally responds to the threads by producing higher quantities of natural collagen for a long-term skin-firming effect. Your facial skin restores, building new tissue, strengthening the skin and building elasticity for improved tone and firmness. Collagen also helps to restore aging skin, causing it to become more supple, thicker, and more youthful.

What is the recovery time after a PDO thread lift?

The beauty of the PDO thread lift is that the recovery is very fast, as it is not a surgical procedure. No scalpels, no stitches no deep bruising. You can book your appointment for the mid-afternoon, go home after a short procedure. By following some special precautions from your doctor about what to do and what not to do post-procedure, you can be back to your regular routines the next day. If you should experience any mild discomfort, only over the counter pain medications are needed.

What should I expect with a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift is a safe treatment, and the threads are FDA-approved. After local anesthetic is administered, the areas to be treated are marked. A needle will be used to create a tiny opening for the insertion of the threads. The needle is guided along the line to the right location to achieve the lifting effect. At that point, the needle is slowly withdrawn. The action is repeated for each thread placed.
