If you are thinking perhaps a thread lift treatment is well suited to your needs, if you haven’t heard yet about PDO thread lifts and what the differences are, it’s well worthwhile looking into it as an option. PDO thread lifts differ in a few ways and can produce different results and be better suited to certain people’s needs. Read on to find out more about PDO thread lifts and what makes them stand out from the rest.

What Does PDO Stand for in a PDO Thread Lift?

PDO is an abbreviation of the name polydioxanone, which is what the sutures used for this kind of thread lift are made from. They are produced from synthetic monofilaments sourced from polydioxanone polyester polymers. The reason these specific structures are used is they provide longer-lasting support as they are more slowly absorbed than some other kinds of sutures, while still being dissolvable. This combination of a long-lasting but still dissolvable suture helps create a good balance of lasting results, combined with a suture you won’t have to deal with down the road.

How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last?

A well-performed PDO thread lift can produce results that provide a lifting effect for around 2-3 years, and thanks to the threads inducing increased collagen production in the areas of placement some residual improvement is typical as well even once the threads are long gone. The threads in a PDO thread lift provide a fantastic amount of structure and support for those not ready to commit or yet need a surgical facelift.

Is a PDO Thread Lift Painful?

No, surprisingly many people find the initial pinch of the local anesthetic injections the worst part as far as pain goes, and this says quite a lot. While you will experience some tenderness after the procedure and numbness wear off, during the treatment you should feel almost nothing other than movement and pressure thanks to the numbing provided by the application of a local anesthetic to areas targeted for treatment.

Do PDO Thread Lifts Provide Immediate Results?

Yes, after the treatment has been completed the lift will be noticeable immediately. The procedure is straightforward in its approach to providing a lift. However, better still over the next few months, as the threads induce collagen production, you will likely notice further improvement to top off your new look. It’s worth noting you may experience some swelling after the treatment which may somewhat mask your results, so don’t be too concerned if things get a little tender and look slightly larger than usual, if you have even the slightest concern, it’s always best to consult with your practitioner.

What Should I Avoid After a PDO Thread Lift?

After you’ve had your thread lift, there are some things you can do to help get the most optimal results and bounce back as quickly as possible. Firstly avoiding alcohol for a week after a thread lift can be a great idea; alcohol thins the blood and can result in bruising or increasing existing bruising. Avoid strenuous exercise for a little while after your treatment, as this helps stop the excess pressure resulting from this causing any issues while your threads settle and injection sites heal. For a full list of things to avoid, take careful note of the advice your practitioner provides. At the same time, while this is typically a procedure with no associated downtime, there are a few things that can help reduce your odds of running into any unnecessary issues.
