Among our most popular and exciting options to refresh your face is PDO thread lifting. Keep reading to learn more about the stunning results that are possible with a PDO thread lift and how to maximize your results with proper PDO thread lift aftercare.
What does a PDO thread lift do?
PDO thread lifting is a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure that aims to lift and tighten the skin for a firmer, more youthful appearance. Additionally, the dissolvable PDO threads used in a PDO thread lift stimulate collagen production for an even more dramatic result. Ideal candidates for PDO thread lifting have early to mild signs of aging in the mid-face, including:
- Sagging skin
- Loose skin
- Fine lines
- Hollow cheeks
- Drooping jowls
How is a PDO thread lift performed?
Your PDO thread lift at JEM Medspa will be performed in one of our relaxing, private treatment rooms in Orland Park or Elmhurst, IL. A PDO thread lift typically takes around 30 minutes to complete, and patients can resume the majority of their daily routines after treatment. To begin, the skin will be numbed with a topical anesthetic. Based on the nature of your concerns, our experienced provider will then insert tiny, dissolvable PDO threads beneath the skin using a fine-gauge needle. Almost immediately following treatment, the skin will appear visibly lifted, firmer, and more youthful, with the results improving further over time as new collagen is produced.
Dos and Don’ts after PDO thread lifting
It’s one thing to get instant, gorgeous results after a PDO thread lift, but keeping your skin looking its best after treatment is another.
What to do after a PDO thread lift
- Avoid direct sun exposure
- Wear sunscreen
- Keep the skin moisturized
- Stay hydrated
- Sleep on your back with your head slightly elevated
What not to do after a PDO thread lift
- Do not expose the skin to direct sunlight
- Do not drink alcohol
- Do not smoke
- Do not touch your face
- Do not sleep on your front or side
- Do not engage in strenuous exercise or physical activity
While you may experience some bruising, discoloration, or swelling at the insertion sites almost immediately after the procedure, these side effects of PDO thread lifting are typically mild and resolve within a few days. With proper PDO lift aftercare, patients can enjoy their plump, lifted, youthful look for up to 12 – 18 months before a repeat treatment may be needed.
