What You Should Know About PDO Threads?

Dec 8, 2021

PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that can be helpful for achieving many aesthetic goals; that’s the main reason why it became so wildly used during the past few years. People are willing to try more and more new things for the appearance they will be happy with.

That is why we decided to talk more about PDO threads and facts every patient should be aware of before trying those. Want to learn more about these anti-aging treatments? Keep reading our newest article!

If you are interested, check out the variety of PDO threads available on PDcosmetics, along with other products for different cosmetic procedures. 

#1. What Are PDO Threads?

PDO is an abbreviation for the name of the product – polydioxanone; smooth sutures for the thread lift procedure are made from it. Specialists prefer using this material because of its long-lasting effect and great compatibility with the human body (as followed, adverse reactions after the treatment are less likely to happen). Moreover, it is absorbed slower than other similar products, so a positive effect stays longer. And let’s not forget about collagen production stimulated after the insertion – with its help, it is easier to preserve younger-looking, glowing skin in a patient.

#2. How Long the Effect after a Thread Lift Last?

If used correctly, PDO thread lift can support results and provide a lifting effect for 2-3 years (depending on the product and the treated area, of course). It even remains after sutures were fully absorbed for some time, thanks to the collagen production stimulation. That’s an amazing alternative to people who are afraid to try surgeries and other serious procedures but still want to eliminate lines and wrinkles and stay youthful for much longer.

#3. Is This Procedure Painful?

As most patients share, thread lifting is not painful at all, which is pretty surprising for a non-surgical face lift. Not only that, but people claim a local anesthetic injection is the most uncomfortable and unpleasant part of the procedure. However, you should be ready for increased skin sensitivity and tenderness after the process is done, but that’s a common side effect that is typically gone pretty fast and doesn’t cause any severe complications. If needed, a doctor may prescribe a local anesthetic to eliminate unpleasant sensations typical after the treatment.

#4. When Can I See the Result after the Procedure?

Instant skin lifting is one of the most positive features typical for PDO threads procedures. However, it becomes only better as time flows and the production of such substances as elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid becomes better. Please note that insignificant swelling and bruising are possible after the procedure so that the results may not be noticeable at first because of these injection sites reactions. Those should be gone in a day, so you shouldn’t have any worries, and maybe try some tips related to PDO threads lifting aftercare rules. However, if side effects become worse, we would recommend contacting a health care provider. In this way, you’ll get proper medical advice and avoid severe reactions possible after any type of aesthetic procedure.

#5. What to Avoid after the Thread Lifting?

After the PDO thread lift treatment, we recommend following our pieces of advice on how to take care of the skin after this beauty procedure properly. With the help of those, it will be possible to eliminate swelling, redness, and other visible side effects, as well as make the recovery process a lot faster and less problematic. First of all, we would recommend stopping alcohol consumption for at least a week to prevent blood thinning and, as a result, reduce bruising noticeably; the same is with some painkillers that have blood-thinning abilities, so consult about those with a doctor as well. Avoiding strenuous exercises for a few days would also be a great idea because the chances are, excess pressure can cause some serious issues of threads settling (despite those are smooth threads, barbed threads, or coil threads) in the skin tissue and the overall healing process. Do not massage the area and skip make-up and facials for at least 10 days after the cosmetic procedure to not put any pressure and harmful actions on the treated zone. As for the last tip, we would like to emphasize that overheating is among the things that can affect the results as well. We recommend avoiding steam rooms, saunas, hot showers, and baths, sunbathing, and so on.

#6. Areas that Can Be Improved with the Help of PDO Threads

PDO thread lift is a unique procedure that can be applied to practically every facial area. That’s why so many people prefer using it to lift sagging skin and improve skin texture in general. Perfect zones for this rejuvenating treatment include eyebrows and undereye area, mimic wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), cheeks, fine lines around the mouth, nasolabial folds, jawline, and neck zone, etc. Thanks to just one treatment session, noticeable skin tightening and lifting are available to patients who pursue a younger-looking appearance.

#7. Thread Lift Aftercare Rules

We have already mentioned what not to do after a PDO thread lift, but there are still a few pieces of advice you may follow to make recovery faster and less problematic for yourself. The most important step is to add a few steps to your skincare routine – applying a gentle antibiotic cream; it is among the most important ones. Ask your doctor about the recommendation perfect for you in particular. Talk to the specialist about follow-up appointments as well to make sure the healing process is going well, and there are no complications caused by a PDO thread lift.

Final Word

PDO threads are among the most popular products in aesthetic medicine, even though some people still doubt whether to try them because of their unusual working principle. After just one procedure, it is possible to start the process of stimulating collagen production and give people the rejuvenating effect they need. We hope this article was useful and explained a lot about PDO thread lift to you. Thank you for reading; stay safe!
