What Is PDO Thread Lift?

Think of a PDO thread lift as a much-less-invasive facelifting technology. The medspa specialist inserts specially designed biodegradable PDO threads under your skin. These threads are used to lift portions of your skin, commonly around your face or neck. The introduction of the PDO thread also contracts fat tissue which results in skin tightening. The procedure also promotes the production of collagen, which renews your skin cells. These three benefits work together to give enhanced skin texture and elasticity. The FDA Class II threads then naturally dissolve in your body.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

PDO thread lifts can treat all of the parts of your face where aging is the most apparent such as the underside of the chin and along the neck. These are areas where most people experience the first signs of sagging skin due to age. PDO thread lifts started with those areas, and with the expansion of treatment technology, we can now treat your entire face. The areas we cover are:

  • Under-Eye Area
  • Eyebrows
  • Crow’s Feet
  • “11” Lines in between the Brow
  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Jowls
  • Jawline
  • Wrinkles around the Mouth
  • Underside of Chin
  • Neck

What Is The Procedure?

What sets the PDO thread lift apart are the instantaneous results and the low recovery time. When preparing for a PDO thread lift, you should avoid alcohol, ginko, omega 3 fatty acids like fish oil, Vitamin E, steam rooms, saunas, high-intensity workouts, ibuprofen, and aspirin for at least two days. This is to avoid increased bruising or bleeding from the procedure. Before treatment, you will also have a consultation with a Luxe Lounge Medspa specialist to discuss the areas you would like to focus on for treatment. Our specialists will customize the PDO thread lift to your aesthetic goals, skin texture, and unique skin type.

During the PDO treatment, our specialist will apply a topical numbing agent and local anesthetic to ensure you feel no discomfort. Once the numbing agent has taken effect, the PDO threads are inserted into your skin by either sharp-tipped or blunt tip needles. The threads are then anchored to different layers of your skin. The specialist removes the needle and pulls the thread to create the desired lift effect. Then the excess threads are cut off. Treatments take 15-30 minutes.

After your treatment, you may experience slight swelling and bruising, but it will subside within 48 hours. For the first week, you should avoid rubbing your face, visiting saunas, doing intensive exercise, and sleeping with your face directly on the pillow. The results of the anti-aging treatment will be immediately apparent, although it does take 2-4 months for the full effects to take place. Often it takes 2-3 treatments for maximum lift, and the treatments last about 12-24 months. Because PDO thread lifts are non-surgical return treatments for extended results are easy to set up.

Other Treatments

We pride ourselves on offering the best skincare for all—especially those with aging skin—and that is why we have a wide variety of treatment options available. Injectables and fillers are perfect compliments to a PDO thread lift. Injectables are excellent for treating wrinkles and lines that are caused by facial motions. At Luxe Lounge Medspa, we offer a selection of injectables that includes Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, QWO, and Kybella. On the other hand, fillers are better for treating more static wrinkles caused by aging and not exacerbated by movement. Our selection of filler treatments includes Juvederm, Sculptra, Versa, Restylane, Radiesse, and Kybella.
