PDO Thread Lifts Q & A

What are PDO thread lifts?

PDO thread lifts are a nonsurgical alternative to a traditional facelift. During a PDO thread lift. Dr. Harrison carefully places sutures that suspend your skin, creating a subtle tightening and lifting effect that dramatically rejuvenates your look. 

In addition to lifting your skin and smoothing out lines and wrinkles, PDO thread lifts also stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a structural protein found in the dermal layer of your skin.

As you get older, the production of collagen decreases. Without collagen, your skin loses its strength and elasticity, making it more vulnerable to lines, wrinkles, and sagging. 

By increasing collagen production, a PDO thread lift provides lasting results. 

Am I a good candidate for PDO thread lifts?

When you come in for an aesthetic consultation at Sky Vein & Aesthetics, Dr. Harrison conducts a comprehensive evaluation to determine the best treatment to help you achieve your beauty goals.

You may be considered a good candidate for a PDO thread lift if you have mild to moderate skin laxity. A PDO thread lift produces immediate and longer-lasting results than other beauty treatments such as Botox® and dermal fillers. 

Dr. Harrison recommends PDO thread lifts for facial rejuvenation to fill in the gap between injectables and surgery. He may also recommend a PDO thread lift if you’re not a good candidate for a surgical facelift because of your medical history, such as high blood pressure or heart disease. 

What happens during PDO thread lifts?

Dr. Harrison creates custom PDO thread lift treatment plans and reviews the details at your consultation. 

In general, your PDO thread lifts are an in-office procedure that takes an hour or less. During your session, Dr. Harrison introduces the PDO suture into the deep layers of your skin, creating an instant rejuvenating and contouring effect.  

You may experience some redness and swelling at the site of your sutures, but these side effects resolve within a few days. 

What happens after PDO thread lifts?

Dr. Harrison provides specific instructions on how to care for your skin after placement of your PDO threads. Despite the short-lived side effects, you should see an immediate improvement in your look. 

In addition to addressing the signs of aging caused by gravity, you should also notice an improvement in your skin’s texture, fine lines, and resilience from the collagen stimulation. 

Your PDO threads completely dissolve within 6-8 months, but your skin continues to produce collagen for the next 3-6 months. The rejuvenating effects of your PDO thread lift at Sky Vein & Aesthetics can last up to a year.
