09 Jun PDO Threads: The Non-Surgical Facelift in Dallas, TX
Ok, ok, I 👀 you. My fellow Dallasites looking for a little non-surgical facelift on the down-low 🤫. That’s why PDO Threads are the bee’s knees. They’re discreet and effective. Men and women can benefit from PDO Threads if they’re looking for an alternative to a surgical facelift. I see patients in Dallas, TX for a wide range of aesthetic treatments, including Lip Injections, Non-Surgical Nose Job, Botox Injections, and Facial Sculpting with FDA-Approved dermal fillers. But today I’m here to give you all the facts on this modern advancement in aesthetic treatments known as PDO Threads or ‘Thread Lift.’
What are PDO Threads?
This is the part where I blow your mind. The creative ingenuity that medical professionals exhibit every day to invent such cutting-edge aesthetic treatments has me in a consistent state of “awe”. They are more commonly known as PDO Threads, but in fact, they are PDO sutures. The same type of sutures that you may get after surgery; the kind that dissolve on their own. PDO stands for polydioxanone, which is safely absorbed by the body. These tiny threads are flexible and you won’t even feel them under the skin. There are a few different types of threads with different benefits and lifting effects for specific areas of the face or body. PDO threads are designed to stimulate collagen production under the skin in the treated area. In a sense, you’re receiving a natural facelift from the inside out over time.
Now that You Mentioned it, What is Collagen?
You can think of collagen as the glue that holds it all together. It’s the most abundant form of protein in the body and reinforces healthy skin, bones, organs, connective tissues, tendons, and teeth. When PDO Threads are used, the body sends collagen to the muscles under the skin to heal, providing structure and lift. Dermal Fillers and skin treatments such as Microneedling will also promote collagen production. This is why I usually recommend a combination of treatments for patients seeking a non-surgical facelift.
Where Can PDO Threads be Used?
Just about anywhere you want to see an improvement in skin laxity. The most popular areas are upper face, lower face, neck, crows feet, and brows. The Fox Eye treatment with PDO Threads has become one of the most sought-after treatments in America. It’s basically a non-surgical brow lift, giving FIERCE results. PDO Threads are also a safe and effective treatment for booty enhancement, but I’ll tell you more about that in another blog. 😉
Can PDO Threads be Combined with Dermal Fillers and Botox® for a Better Result?
Yes! In fact, I usually recommend a combination of PDO Threads and Dermal Fillers for patients looking to contour their facial structure and receive a non-surgical facelift at the same time. After the PDO Threads have settled, Botox® will help to prolong the results.
Are There Any Clinical Studies about PDO Threads?
You know I wouldn’t be so excited about them if there weren’t! In a clinical study testing the efficacy of PDO threads, 89% of patients experienced results ranging from good-excellent-satisfactory.
What’s the Downtime after Receiving The PDO Thread Non-Surgical Facelift?
You may experience some bruising and swelling, which is completely normal and can last up to 14 days following your treatment. You can return to work right away.
