PDO THREADS Q&A
What are PDO threads near me?
PDO threads are sutures made of biodegradable polyester. When inserted into strategic areas, they can help lift sagging skin and reduce the appearance of cosmetic imperfections like wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet.
At FLASH Dentspa, the clinicians use smooth PDO threads as an alternative to the traditional facelift. The procedure is minimally invasive but provides stunning results.
What types of cosmetic issues can PDO threads address?
The clinicians at FLASH Dentspa use PDO threads to address various cosmetic issues, including:
- Sagging jowls
- Loose skin
- Marionette lines
- Acne scars
- Frown lines
PDO threads can also address skin damage caused by environmental factors, like pollution and sun exposure.
How do I prepare for treatment with PDO threads?
Before treatment with PDO threads, avoid using alcohol and tobacco for at least five days. Your FLASH Dentspa provider might also ask you to avoid certain medications or supplements, like blood thinners or green tea extracts, to reduce the risk of bleeding or bruising.
What happens during a PDO thread lift near me?
At FLASH Dentspa, a PDO thread lift takes between 45 and 60 minutes.
Before treatment begins, your clinician washes your face with an antiseptic solution and administers a local anesthetic.
After the anesthetic sets in, your clinician uses a needle to guide the PDO threads into specific areas of your skin. They tighten the threads and tie them off, ensuring they remain in the proper position.
When your clinician finishes placing each of the PDO threads, they move you to a recovery room for observation and provide care instructions.
What is recovery like after treatment with PDO threads?
After treatment with PDO threads, you may experience some mild swelling and bruising. As much as possible, avoid rubbing or pressing on your face because you might break or dislodge one of the threads.
During the first few weeks of recovery, avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. Your provider might also ask you to refrain from strenuous exercise for at least a week.
How long do the results of treatment with PDO threads last?
The results of treatment with PDO threads last two years on average,* but it’s possible to extend them. The clinicians at FLASH Dentspa recommend routine checkups and preventive maintenance.
