What is a PDO Thread Lift?

PDO Thread treatments are nonsurgical aesthetic procedures that reposition static sagging skin while stimulating collagen and elastin production. Biodegradable Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are inserted into the skin of the treatment area using a thin, specially-designed tubular needle, lifting the skin to a more youthful position and creating a tightening effect.  Over time, this process stimulates collagen production, resulting in fewer wrinkles for patients.  PDO threads are FDA approved and have been used in medicine for many years in orthopedics, surgery, plastic surgery and ophthalmology. 

What Can You Treat with PDO Max Threads?

PDO threads can restore and refresh features for many patients. Threads can smooth repair and tighten wrinkled, crepey skin resulting in a smoother plumper appearance in areas such as:

  • Cheeks
  • Brow
  • Lips
  • Jowls
  • Neck 

Threads can also be used to reposition, lift and secure static sagging skin in areas such as:

  • Hand
  • Decolletage
  • Inner/Outer Thigh
  • Knee
  • Buttock
  • Underarm 

Additionally, PDO threads complement other aesthetic procedures that the patient may need by improving the overall health and texture of the skin. 

How Long Can PDO Threads Last?

PDO threads begin to naturally dissolve after about 6-8 months. The effects will become more pronounced and natural over time as more collagen is stimulated and elastin fibers are formed. 

What is the Recovery Time After a PDO Thread Lift?

Our PDO Thread Lift in Portsmouth and Stratham offers a non-surgical approach with much less downtime than a surgical facelift. Bruising and swelling may occur but most patients can return to their normal activities after a day or two.  Following the treatment, patients receive recovery guidelines for a smooth healing process. Over-the-counter pain medications can effectively alleviate any discomfort experienced by patients.

What Can Be Expected From a PDO MAX Thread Lift?

The PDO thread lift is an FDA-approved and entirely safe procedure. Each treatment is tailored to the patient’s exact needs. It begins with the application of a local anesthetic to the treatment area. A small needle is then used to create an opening for inserting the threads. With gentle pulling, the threads reposition the treatment area until the desired aesthetic is attained. The process is repeated with additional threads as needed for optimal results.

Pre-Procedural Considerations

  • Patients who have allergies, such as anaphylaxis or cold sores, should inform their practitioner right away. 
  • As bruising and swelling are known to occur following the treatment, patients can take oral arnica up to three days prior to the treatment. 
  • NSAIDS and all other blood thinners (fish oil, vitamin E, garlic, etc) must be avoided for at least three days leading up to the treatment. 
  • Alcohol should also be avoided at least three days beforehand.  

Post-Procedural Considerations

  • Avoid picking or bothering the treatment sites.
  • Refrain from undergoing any laser or radiofrequency treatments for at least a month. 
  • Refrain from submerging yourself in water (baths and pools) for at least a week. 
  • Avoid exercise for at least a week.
