PDO Thread Lifting
PDO Thread Lifting is a procedure where threads are inserted into a client's face to pull and tighten facial skin. This results in more collagen formation and skin rejuvenation. This procedure may also be performed in other areas besides the face.
How Do the Threads Lift my Skin?
The threads have little cogs in them which will attach to the skin. This will help pull and lift the facial skin to reveal a tighter, slimmer, and lifted face.
What Happens During Treatment?
Lidocaine will be injected into the clients face to numb it before the procedure begins. Then threads that are on cannulas or needles will be inserted into the skin. Only the thread will be left in the skin.
Is This Treatment Painful?
Due to the Lidocaine injections at the beginning of the treatment, clients report that there is little to no pain. Clients will however feel the pressure of the thread going in.
How Long is the Procedure?
The treatment takes about 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area and the type of threads being used.
Is There any Downtime?
There is no downtime and most clients go to work the day after treatment. There may be minimal swelling and pain after the lidocaine as worn off.
What are the Post Treatment Instructions?
The client should not go to a sauna, massage their face vigorously, do strenuous exercise, and swim to prevent the movement of the threads and prevent delay in healing. Ice packs can be used on the areas treated to help the swelling and pain. In addition, clients will be given an instruction sheet after the procedure.
When Will I See the Results?
Results can be seen after the treatment; however, the results of the treatment can be seen best in one month. The facial skin will continue to get tighter, brighter, and more lifted as time passes.
How Long Will the Threads Last?
PDO Threads typically last a year to a year and a half.
