Imagine enjoying the benefits of rejuvenated, lifted skin without invasive plastic surgery. PDO thread lifts can give the skin on your face or body a more youthful, elevated appearance. Our medical professionals at Arcadia Wellness Center can perform our PDO thread lift procedure on your face, neck, chest, arms or buttocks to tighten and lift your skin.
What is a PDO Thread Lift?
Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifting is a non-invasive procedure used to elevate skin that is sagging or stretching, resulting in loose skin or wrinkles. A needle is used to insert the PDO threads into the sagging skin and anchor the skin in an elevated position. This mechanically lifts the skin, creating an immediate lifting in the targeted area. The secondary effects are the stimulation of collagen in the skin and a contracting of the fat tissue, tightening the skin for a rejuvenated appearance.
PDO threads do not need to be removed; they safely dissolve in the skin in about 6-8 months. The collagen and tightening effects can last for months after the threads dissolve, achieving a more youthful appearance for a year or longer after the treatment. The treatment can be performed at our clinic, with little to no downtime required and immediate results to help you look years younger. We use local anesthesia to numb the area before the procedure – you can expect some swelling and possible bruising in the treated area that will dissipate over the following days.
What Areas Can Be Treated with PDO Thread Lifts?
Skin loses its elasticity as you get older due to waning collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin levels. This occurs all over the body, resulting in sagging or loose skin than is thinner with lost elasticity. PDO thread lifts can be used in a variety of areas to lift the skin, smooth wrinkles and improve the tone. Over the following weeks, skin tightening can occur with induced collagen. Areas we treat with PDO thread lifting at Arcadia Wellness Center include:
- Face – brows, jowls, midface (smile lines), eyes and jawline
- Chest or décolletage
- Arms (bat wings)
Multiple areas can be treated at one time, lifting your face, neck, chest and body areas in one rejuvenating session.
