Paradise Dermatology is proud to offer PDO Threading, a thread lift treatment that acts like a facelift, without the surgery. This treatment works by lifting sagging and smoothing skin with PDO (Polydioxanone) threads.
PDO Threading uses sterile, absorbable PDO (Polydioxanone) threads that are injected and absorbed into the skin. When administered, the threads are lifted up, which tightens the skin, and as the threads absorb over time, they begin to build collagen and elastin through the body’s natural healing process.
Dermal fillers are also often paired with this treatment to volumize and complement the effects of thread lifts while also providing a better scaffold under the skin when threads are applied.
Patients can expect a more youthful appearance after a PDO Thread Lift procedure. Through a customized treatment plan, threads are strategically placed in order to lift sagging tissues of the face, such as in the jawline, jowls, marionette lines, oral commissures, nasolabial folds, and cheeks.
Patients can expect to see results immediately. PDO threads also continue to absorb for about 4 - 6 months and can last up to 12 - 24 months.
A PDO Threading treatment can take about 45 minutes to one hour, depending on the treatment area. Multiple treatments are not needed.
Most patients experience minimal downtime for about 24 - 72 hours.
