Polydioxanone is absorbed by the body through hydrolysis. This takes 4-6 months to achieve.
There are no incisions or cutting for this procedure, only injections. A topical anesthetic cream is applied to the skin of the injection site to numb and minimize any discomfort for the patient. Numbing medicine may also be injected into the skin if the patient desires.
The PDO thread lift is a quick procedure. The length of treatment time depends on the area.
Cheeks, jowl, marionette lines, eyebrows, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, elbows, knees, abdomen, buttocks, the whole face.
The results are an immediate lifting effect, but optimum results will be seen around 3 to 6 months post-procedure.
The PDO thread lift will last approximately 2 years, but varies by patient.
Mild swelling and bruising are always possible side effects with any injectable procedure.
The costs vary greatly to each patient’s specific needs and area to be treated. Your doctor can calculate how many PDO threads are needed and a quote can be given only at that time. Please call the office to discuss pricing.
The PDO thread lift may be combined with Botox and fillers, especially to amplify the effect. RF microneedling or skin laser resurfacing can be done about 4 weeks after the threads are placed. Dermalinfusion can be done about 2 weeks after the threads are placed.<br/><br/>
