Not every patient is ready for surgery or requires surgery to address their concerns. That’s why Cosmetica Plastic Surgery and Anti-Aging offers PDO threads to lift sagging skin with minimal invasion or downtime.
PDO stands for Polydioxanone, a synthetic absorbable suture material. PDO sutures have been used in cardiothoracic, plastic, and gynecologic surgery for over 30 years and are one of the safest suture materials. PDO sutures are “bio-restimulative” because they stimulate your collagen production, the substance in your skin that is responsible for its youthfulness. With PDO threads, Adley DaSilva can help patients lift sagging in many areas of the body and smooth out facial lines and wrinkles.
PDO threads have a variety of uses when it comes to minimally invasive enhancement. Patients can benefit from PDO threads to:
- Smooth out facial wrinkles
- Lift the eyebrows
- Restore midface volume
- Improve sagging in the neck
- Improve jowls
Candidates for a PDO thread lift are those who are not ready for a surgical procedure with a traditional facelift, neck lift, or brow lift. The most successful candidates are those with moderate laxity and facial sagging and experience signs of aging due to volume loss.
“The staff were amazing, they make you feel like family. Adley is very experienced and I felt confident in his abilities. I’ll definitely be back. :)”
To begin treatment, the area will be numbed with topical anesthetic. The locations are then marked where the threads will the inserted. Adley will then insert the threads below the skin using a hollow needle. The thread will then grasp onto the skin and allow the tissue to be lifted and repositioned. With the threads secured, the needle is then removed, leaving no scarring. The threads are left under the skin to be absorbed by the body. This process takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Patients can expect minimal side effects and recovery time after treatment with PDO threads. Some tightness and mild discomfort will be experienced for the first few days. Patients report an instant lift to the skin after PDO thread treatment that smooths out their facial lines and wrinkles. Improved results can be expected after about two weeks as the body begins to produce new collagen to restore volume loss. The results of PDO threads can last for about 6-12 months.
To begin treatment with PDO threads, patients will need to schedule a consultation with Adley DaSilva to get started. Adley will examine your skin and discuss your concerns to determine if the thread lift is right for you.
