PDO Thread Lift

We all have things about ourselves that we would like to change. Whether that be fuller lips, flatter stomachs, or removing our smile lines and unwanted fat. Thankfully with the advancements of today, we have treatments and procedures that will help us to get back to the person we want to see in the mirror. The PDO Thread Lift is a non-surgical face lift that utilizes monofilament fibers, which dissolve over time, to lift and reposition the skin in order to accentuate the cheeks, diminish jowls and tighten the jawline. The threads are made out of a well-known material that is used in pediatric cardiac surgeries, and can also be used in many other areas of the body besides the face and neck.


What Does A PDO Thread Lift Address?

PDO Thread Lifts result in instant skin lifting. They contract fat tissue to result in rapid skin tightening. This procedure promotes collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles and more elastic skin. At Allergy & Skin Spa, we offer treatments that will help you to reach the goals you have in mind for your physical self. We will never achieve perfection, but it doesn’t hurt for us to seek out treatments to help us achieve our goals one step at a time. Some problem areas most people face when trying to decide if a PDO Thread Lift is for them is their cheeks and the lower face and neck. The cheeks and lower face are great regions to treat because they lend themselves so well to synergistic skin lifting treatments like Ultherapy. Some results of the treatment, such as skin lifting and some of the contouring effects, are visible immediately after treatment.

How to Prepare for a Lift Treatment

  • Alcohol
  • Omega fish oil supplements and Vitamin E
  • High-intensity workouts
  • Steam rooms and saunas

PDO Thread Lift Procedures

PDO Thread Lifts are customized to your unique skin type, skin texture and aesthetic goals. Depending on the area you have brought to Dr. Kia’s attention, we will customize a treatment that will bring about your desired results. Since this is a non-invasive procedure it will only take between 15-30 minutes to accomplish. Our team at Allergy & Skin Spa will start by placing numbing cream on the areas you are looking to lift. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, your treatment will begin. The PDO threads are inserted via blunt tip needles, called cannulas, or sharp-tipped needles. Once inserted into the appropriate layer of skin, they act as anchors as the skin is lifted upwards. Different threads are used for varying degrees of lift, skin tightening and cellular rejuvenation.
