What are PDO Thread lifts?

PDO thread lifts are a safe and effective treatment option for patients who want to refresh their skin without undergoing surgery. Also known as a thread lift, we complete this in-office procedure with long-lasting, dissolvable sutures that lift and contour the complexion. While gently lifting the cheeks and decreasing the appearance of wrinkles, PDO threads reduce droopy skin around the middle of the face, which makes the complexion look smoother and tighter. Both of our facilities in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL proudly offer this innovative, noninvasive procedure to turn back the hands of time. During the procedure, we use threads that also stimulate the production of collagen, which will further enhance your skin’s appearance and health. To learn more, we encourage you to call JEM Medspa and schedule an appointment for additional information about PDO thread lifts.

What are the benefits of a PDO Thread Lift?

There are many benefits associated with a PDO thread lift procedure, including:

  • Results that last longer than common brands of cosmetic injectable wrinkle relaxers
  • Being less invasive than a traditional facelift surgery
  • The stimulation of collagen production for improved outcomes over time
  • Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines for a more youthful appearance
  • Customizable treatment options
  • Minimal downtime
  • Gradual and long-lasting results
  • Versatility
  • Natural-looking results

Who is a Candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?

For patients who have mild to moderate wrinkles, sagging skin, or fine lines, PDO thread lifts can help reduce these signs of aging. Usually, this happens because of the natural decline in collagen and elastin production. The loss of these essential skin nutrients causes drooping skin and volume loss in the middle and lower part of the face. For additional enhancement, we can combine PDO threading with another rejuvenating treatment, such as dermal fillers or wrinkle relaxer injectables. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and help set realistic expectations. 

How does a thread lift work?

Usually, PDO thread lifts only takes about 30 minutes to complete, and we perform it in one of our private procedure rooms. To ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure, we start by applying a numbing ointment to your skin. We must emphasize that PDO threading only helps with lifting and refreshing the skin and is not used for other aesthetic objectives. Unlike other threading procedures, we do not suture or implant the threads. Instead, we use long-term, dissolvable threads that stimulate the production of collagen. Once your skin is completely numb, a team member will delicately insert the thread into the treatment area and lift the sagging skin. After your procedure, you may go back to your daily routine. Over time, these threads will start to dissolve, and usually, your results can last about 12 – 18 months.

What can I Expect after a thread lift?

After your procedure, you will be able to leave and recover at home. Generally, you only experience mild symptoms, including discoloration and swelling around the treatment sites. However, these should go away in 1 – 2 days. Immediately after your procedure, you should notice your results. Your complexion will naturally appear lifted, tighter, and refreshed. Before you leave, one of our team members will provide detailed aftercare directions. Proper aftercare may extend your results, which may last about two years. If you want to enhance or maintain your results, our team can suggest additional rejuvenation treatments that can help.

PDO Thread Lift FAQ

How long will my results last after a PDO thread lift?
The longevity of thread lift results can vary from patient to patient. However, the typical length of results is about 12 – 18 months. Follow-up treatments and additional procedures can also be scheduled to help maintain your results.

Is a thread lift painful?
Prior to your thread lift procedure, a numbing agent can be applied to the skin. This can help the treatment remain as comfortable as possible. You can also talk with our team if you have any questions or concerns.

What should I not do after a thread lift?
After a thread lift, our team will provide the necessary aftercare instructions to make sure you heal properly. You may be asked to abstain from exercising, wearing makeup, or rubbing your face for the remainder of the day. Additionally, you may need to sleep on your back the night of your procedure to not put any pressure on your face.

What is the cost of a thread lift?
The exact price of your thread lifting treatment may differ based on the amount of threads required, which are decided according to your concerns and aims. Keep in mind that a PDO thread lifting is quite a bit lower in price than a cosmetic surgical procedure, so it could work an option for a facelift surgery alternative. Our providers at JEM Medspa will tell you more about cost information when you come for your consult.

How many PDO thread lift sessions will I need?
The entire treatment can be finished in just one session. Additionally, as the sutures dissolve into they skin, they will encourage collagen and elastin production, which will continue to enhance your results long after your session has ended.

What is the best age for a PDO thread lift?
There is no ideal age for a PDO thread lift. If you notice the visible effects of aging on your face, including sagging skin and wrinkles, you could likely benefit from this procedure.
