A facelift isn’t the only way to improve sagging skin. While surgery is a good option for transforming your look, many are concerned about going under the knife. PDO Thread Lifts may be right for you if you want an effective alternative. This minimally invasive treatment can provide you with a subtle lift that lasts for over a year! Sessions take little time, and you can always schedule follow-ups to maintain your results. Contact our office here in Reno, Nevada, to learn more.

What Are PDO Thread Lifts?

PDO sutures are a type of material used for thread lifts. PDO, which stands for polydioxanone, is an absorbable polymer that is flexible and durable, making it perfect for minimally invasive thread lifts. A PDO thread lift aims to reposition facial and neck tissues to restore and rejuvenate the youthful proportions and appearances of the face. A PDO thread lift is designed to lift the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while encouraging collagen production.

What Do PDO Threads Address?

These threads are mainly for tightening sagging skin but can also improve eye shape and minimize the appearance of scars. The primary focus areas include the neck, jaw, and cheeks. PDO Threads can also be a good option for: 

  • Butt lifts
  • Stomach lifts 
  • Improving your decolletage. 
  • Reducing necklines (tech neck).
  • Rejuvenating your hands.

What to Expect

At Posh, our PDO procedures are performed using Nova Threads. These are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. The needle is inserted into the facial tissue at a subdermal level. When the needles are removed, the threads stay in place. The idea behind the thread is to create a scaffolding to support the facial tissue, giving a subtle lift. Over the course of 18 months, the threads safely dissolve, stimulating natural collagen production and offering long-term results. This entire procedure is conducted with your comfort and wellness in mind.

Results of PDO Thread Lifts

Recovery is minimal after a PDO Thread Lifts procedure. Most patients can return to work and most normal activities one day after the procedure with only minor discomfort. It is common for patients to experience minor inflammation and bruising, which typically resolves within one week.
