What is a PDO ThreadLift?

A PDO ThreadLift utilizes biodegradable threads and a hypodermic needle for its procedure. This lift involves the careful insertion of polydioxanone threads beneath the skin’s surface, aiming to secure and elevate sagging skin, stimulate collagen production, and create a more defined contour in the targeted area.

This technique effectively transforms a sagging or oval-shaped face into a more attractive, smooth V-shape. The thread lift is a convenient and efficient rejuvenation method for those not ready or needing more extensive skin tightening treatments, such as a facelift. While it shares the skin-tightening benefits of a facelift, the PDO ThreadLift stands out due to its quick, less invasive nature and the minimal recovery time required.

At Tampa Bay Total Wellness, the ThreadLift is a tailor-made procedure that can address various needs, such as tightening skin on the neck or chin, refining the jawline, diminishing nasolabial folds and marionette lines, elevating the brow and cheeks, or reducing under-eye wrinkles. Depending on your specific goals, the procedure may involve a combination of PDO Threads or just a few.

The results of this procedure can last up to three years, with the option to prolong the effects through a subsequent PDO ThreadLift. The biodegradable threads, made of Polydioxanone, are a material with a long-standing history of safe use in various medical fields like orthopedics, cardiovascular surgery, and plastic surgery. The body naturally breaks down and eliminates these threads, reabsorbing them within six months post-treatment.

Upon insertion, the PDO threads prompt the body’s natural healing response. This leads to increased collagen production around the thread area, helping the skin conform to its new, adjusted position. Visible improvements are often noted within two weeks, with complete absorption of the threads by the body within four to six months.

The PDO Thread Lift is noted for its quick and comfortable process, making it feasible to undergo even during a lunch break!

Who is a PDO ThreadLift candidate?

A PDO ThreadLift may be suitable for you if you notice sagging skin in areas like your neck, chin, mouth, cheeks, brow, or eyes. This procedure is particularly beneficial for those aiming to enhance skin tightness, diminish wrinkles, and attain a rejuvenated, uplifted look. If you have saggy or extra tissue, a soft tissue lift using specialized PDO Threads might be recommended, particularly for lifting the softer areas of the chin and lower face. The ideal individuals for this treatment should possess a certain level of skin elasticity and hold realistic expectations about what can be achieved through this cosmetic technique.

For those with a hectic lifestyle who aren’t keen on or prepared for a traditional facelift, the PDO ThreadLift offers a practical and effective solution to counteract facial aging signs. Additionally, those seeking to firm up skin areas on their body, like the abdomen or arms, may find the PDO ThreadLift to be an effective method to reach their aesthetic goals.

The most favorable outcomes from a PDO ThreadLift are typically seen in patients who don’t smoke and are committed to keeping a consistent weight. Habits like smoking and significant weight fluctuations can negatively impact the results of a PDO ThreadLift.

What is the PDO ThreadLift recovery like?

The recovery period after a PDO ThreadLift is remarkably minimal, often described as a “lunchtime facelift” due to its quick and relatively painless process. Patients typically experience minor swelling or bruising, which resolves within a few days, allowing for a swift return to daily activities. Furthermore, the procedure stimulates natural collagen production, ensuring that the skin continues to improve in texture and firmness in the weeks following the treatment. This makes the PDO ThreadLift an increasingly popular choice for those seeking a youthful appearance without the downtime associated with traditional surgical methods. The combination of immediate results and ongoing improvement makes the PDO ThreadLift a highly sought-after procedure for facial rejuvenation.

The Right Thread for You

Smooth Thread

Smooth threads, or mono threads, are minimally invasive threads that promote collagen production around the thread. Smooth threads can be placed in a criss-crossed pattern to tighten the skin in the desired position. Smooth threads can also add youthful volume. Smooth threads in Tampa can provide a highly effective solution if you want to tighten the skin on your neck, forehead, or lower face.

Twisted Threads

If you want to add volume and lift, twisted or corkscrew threads add valuable support to the skin structures. Twisted threads are often the best way to lift the skin of the lower face to achieve a tighter, more youthful contour around the jaw and mouth. Twisted threads in Tampa can also help restore volume to sunken or gaunt areas of the face.

Barbed Threads

Barbed threads can be administered alone or in conjunction with smooth PDO threads. The barbs help with lift and collagen production. Barbed PDO threads will help firm and reposition the skin into a tighter, lifted position.

We offer a variety of PDO Threads in Tampa in order to achieve the preferred outcomes for every patient. If you have questions about a particular type of PDO Thread, like Novathread, we will be happy to speak with you during an informative consultation at Tampa Bay Total Wellness.
