PDO Thread Lift

Thread lifts used to involve surgery and became associated with undesirable side effects such as infections and thread breakage. However, the thread lift procedure has radically changed. Most thread-lifting procedures today are non-invasive. While there are many different types of thread lifts, the PDO thread lift is amongst the most popular today. The threads are made in South Korea and are one of the most commonly performed skin-lifting procedures today. The PDO Thread Lift is a treatment that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). The threads introduce them into the deeper layers of the skin, creating a more tightened and youthful appearance.

What is PDO Thread Lift?

PDO (Polydioxanone) Thread Lift is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses absorbable threads made of a biocompatible material called PDO. These threads are strategically placed under the skin to lift and tighten sagging facial tissues, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. PDO threads stimulate collagen production, which further enhances the skin’s elasticity and firmness over time.


Features & Benefits

Non-Surgical Approach

PDO thread lifts offer a non-surgical alternative to traditional facelift procedures. This means less risk, shorter recovery time, and reduced discomfort compared to invasive surgical procedures. It’s suitable for individuals who want to achieve facial rejuvenation without the downtime and risks associated with surgery.

Acne Treatment

Agnes RF is highly effective in treating acne and reducing its associated scars. By precisely targeting the sebaceous glands responsible for acne formation, Agnes RF helps to regulate oil production, shrink pore size, and minimize the appearance of active acne. It also stimulates collagen production, which helps to improve the texture and smoothness of the skin, reducing the visibility of acne scars.

Non-Surgical Facial Lifting

Agnes RF can be used to achieve non-surgical facial contouring and lifting. The precise delivery of radiofrequency energy to specific areas helps to tighten loose or sagging skin, providing a natural lift to the face. This targeted approach stimulates collagen production, resulting in improved skin elasticity and a more youthful appearance.

Versatile Applications

Agnes RF is a versatile treatment that can address a wide range of aesthetic concerns. It can be used for non-surgical facial contouring and lifting, reducing under-eye bags, improving the appearance of double chin, and treating active acne and acne scars. This versatility makes it a valuable tool for addressing multiple cosmetic issues with a single treatment modality.

PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses dissolvable Polydioxanone (PDO) threads to lift and tighten sagging skin. The threads are inserted into the skin, providing support and lifting effects. Over time, the threads stimulate collagen production, improving skin texture and firmness.

During a PDO thread lift, the threads are inserted into the skin using a thin needle or cannula. Once inserted, the threads are gently pulled to lift and reposition sagging skin. The threads have tiny barbs or cones that anchor into the skin, providing immediate lift. Over several months, the threads stimulate collagen production, enhancing the long-term lifting and rejuvenating effects.

 PDO thread lift can be performed on various areas of the face and body. It is commonly used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the cheeks, jawline, neck, brows, and nasolabial folds. PDO threads can also be used to lift and tighten areas such as the arms, thighs, and buttocks.

 No, PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require surgery. It is performed under local anesthesia, and there is typically no need for incisions or extensive downtime. However, it is important to note that there may be some temporary swelling, bruising, or discomfort after the procedure.

 The duration of the results can vary depending on several factors, including the individual’s skin condition, lifestyle, and the number of threads used. Generally, the lifting effects of PDO thread lift can last between 6 months to 1 year. The threads are gradually absorbed by the body over time, but the collagen stimulation can provide longer-lasting benefits.

The recovery process after a PDO thread lift is relatively mild compared to traditional surgical procedures. Patients may experience some minor swelling, bruising, or discomfort in the treated area, which typically subsides within a few days to a week. Most individuals can resume normal activities and work shortly after the procedure.

 PDO thread lift is generally considered safe when performed by a trained professional. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. These can include temporary swelling, bruising, infection, minor asymmetry, or rare instances of thread migration or visibility. It’s important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional who specializes in PDO thread lift to discuss potential risks and benefits.

Good candidates for a PDO thread lift are individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity who desire a non-surgical option for skin tightening and lifting. It is important to have realistic expectations about the results and be in generally good health. A consultation with a qualified healthcare professional is necessary to assess candidacy and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
