Our staff will work with you to ensure we provide the most comprehensive plan to work towards the look and feel you desire.

Overview of PDO Thread Lift

The PDO Thread Lift is a treatment which lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). The threads introduces them into the deeper layers of the skin.

At Atlanta Mobile Aesthetics & IV Hydration Therapy, our board-certified physician offers a cutting-edge, minimally invasive treatment called the PDO Thread Lift. Here’s how it works:

PDO Thread Lift utilizes dissolvable sutures, or threads, made of polydioxanone (PDO). These threads are carefully inserted under your skin to provide targeted tightening and lifting of the treatment area. The PDO threads are strategically placed to create a supportive mesh, stimulating collagen production, and improving your skin’s elasticity over time.

The procedure begins with an examination and consultation by our board-certified physician, followed by a numbing agent applied to the treatment area to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Once the numbing agent takes effect, the PDO threads are gently inserted through a small needle and guided into the proper position.

What Are PDO Threads?

A PDO Thread Lift is a minimally invasive procedure. After numbing and infusion of local anesthesia, the PDO threads are inserted via sharp or blunt tip needles (called cannulas) into different layers of the skin. Once inserted, the threads anchor the skin and lift it upwards. The excess threads are then cut off.

Benefits of PDO Thread Lift

Once introduced, the threads produce 3 effects in the skin:

Instant Skin Lifting through mechanical effects.

Cellular Renewal, through Collagen stimulation, and neovascularization to improve skin texture, fine lines and elasticity.

Skin Tightening, by contracting fat tissue.

At Atlanta Mobile Aesthetics & IV Hydration Therapy, we offer PDO thread lift treatments designed to provide various benefits. Below are some of the advantages you can expect from the service:

Non-surgical facelift: With PDO thread lift, you can achieve a natural-looking facelift without going through invasive surgery. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the sagging areas of your face, giving you a rejuvenated appearance.

Collagen production: This treatment not only corrects sagging skin but also promotes cellular renewal by stimulating the production of collagen in the treated areas.

Quick and convenient: The PDO thread lift procedure requires minimal downtime, allowing you to return to your daily activities soon after the treatment. You’ll experience noticeable results within a short period, making it an ideal choice for those who want a refreshed look without a lengthy recovery process.

Long-lasting effects: The results of a PDO thread lift can last between 1-2 years, depending on your individual response to the treatment. As the threads dissolve over time, your skin will continue to benefit from improved texture and firmness.

To experience these benefits and more, call Atlanta Mobile Aesthetics & IV Hydration Therapy to book an appointment for your PDO thread lift. Our board-certified physician and experienced staff will ensure that you receive the highest quality of care throughout your treatment. Remember, a youthful and revitalized appearance is just a phone call away.

How Long Do PDO Thread Lifts Last?

About 6 months after the procedure, the PDO threads will disappear through simple hydrolysis (they are absorbable). The lifted facial contours will remain for about 3-6 months more, due to the cellular rejuvenation effects. Your skin cells are stimulated to produce new collagen, and new blood vessels to improve skin microcirculation. At the same time, the PDO threads cause the fat tissue to contract, producing a skin tightening and facial slimming effect.

PDO Thread Before and After

PDO Threads support a tighter and slimmer facial appearance.



Side Effects of PDO Thread Lift

This treatment is very safe. Compared to fillers, the side effects are, in fact, much milder. Depending on the types of threads used and areas treated, bruising may or may not occur. Expect some mild swelling and soreness for 3 to 5 days after the procedure, and a sensation of tightness (mild) of up to 2 weeks. Temporary mild dimpling of the skin can also occur – which resolves in a few days.

Some side effects are related to the technique of insertion, and the types of threads used. These include surface depressions, thread migration and even extrusion, facial asymmetry, prolonged pain, and prolonged dimpling. Finally, more serious side effects, though rare, can occur. These include infection, nerve damage, formation of nodules, and damage to the salivary ducts.

Are PDO threads dangerous?2021-02-02T16:37:21+00:00

The PDO thread lift is a surgical procedure, although a minimally invasive one. There are always risks with surgery, but the treatment is considered very safe.

How many years does a thread lift last?2021-02-02T16:37:21+00:00

No two people are alike, so it varies from patient to patient. You may see the effect of the PDO thread lift procedure from one to three years.

Do PDO threads build collagen?2021-02-02T16:37:21+00:00

The insertion of the PDO threads stimulates the body to build collagen in the area. That helps to improve the look and feel of the skin naturally.

Can PDO Threads break?2021-02-02T16:37:21+00:00

Thread breakage is a potential side effect. The threads may break due to excess facial movement, rubbing the skin, or exposure to moisture. When it does happen, breakage tends to be near the ends near the incision point.
The broken thread poses no threat to you. The piece may migrate up until it extrudes from the skin. Broken threads don’t happen that often and are easy to fix.

Can you feel PDO threads?2021-02-02T16:37:21+00:00

You should not feel the actual threads under the skin. They are thinner than a piece of hair. The excess threads are cut so they do not poke out. You may feel the puncture points used to insert the threads for a few weeks as they heal. There may also be a feeling of tightness from the pulling of the skin.
In some cases, the threads can migrate or move. This can happen if the threads break, for example. In that case, you may feel the threads. There may also be thread extrusion, where a piece of the thread comes out. Most problems like these are easy to fix.

Does PDO thread lift really work?2021-02-02T16:37:21+00:00

A PDO thread lift is an effective way to treat fine lines and wrinkles. The introduction of the PDO threads stimulates collagen production in the skin, as well, for natural healing. Although the effect is less dramatic than a traditional facelift, it’s also more natural-looking. The treatment is safer than other cosmetic procedures, too, like fillers.

What is a PDO thread?2021-02-02T16:37:21+00:00

A polydioxanone (PDO) thread is a medical-grade sliver of protein, kind of like a piece of hair but thinner. Once in place, the thread improves blood flow, relaxes tendons and muscles, and stimulates elastin and hyaluronic acid for firmer and more youthful skin. When used as part of a PDO thread lift procedure, they help lift and contour, eliminate fine lines, and improve elasticity while tightening the skin.

How long does PDO thread lift last?2021-02-02T16:37:21+00:00

The PDO threads inserted to anchor the skin last for about six months. The threads themselves are absorbable. Once gone, the facial contours created by the PDO threads remain in place for anywhere from three to six months more. In other words, the effect from the PDO threads could last for 12 months or even longer.
