If the sagging skin you see in the mirror doesn’t reflect how you look and feel on the inside, we have good news: A PDO thread lift minimizes lines and wrinkles while creating smoother, younger-looking skin — without the need for surgery.
At Resplendence MedSpa, board-certified physician Majid Sabour, MD, and our care team are proud to provide only the best anti-aging services to our patients in Beverly Hills, California. The innovative and minimally invasive polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift exceeds our high standards and offers amazing results in as little as 15 minutes.
Take a moment to learn how a PDO thread lift transforms your appearance and rejuvenates sagging skin.
Understanding PDO thread lifts
PDO thread lifts tighten your skin using surgical-grade threads made from high-density polydioxanone threads. We use a needle to place each dissolvable thread and pull it tight, repeating the process until the desired effect is achieved.
The threads dissolve in about 6-8 months, but because the procedure stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which shores up the skin in the area, the effects of a PDO thread lift can last up to three years.
Most patients don’t experience many side effects, though you may notice minor swelling or bruising at the site of the sutures. You should avoid strenuous physical activity for about three weeks and any dental work for about two weeks to allow your skin time to heal.
The best part? You’ll see noticeable improvements immediately, and your skin keeps looking better as you heal, with optimal results in about three months.
Areas treated by PDO thread lifts
At Resplendence MedSpa, we use PDO threading to treat almost any area with sagging skin, including:
- Crow’s feet
- Upper and lower eyelids
- Forehead furrows and frown lines
- Drooping brows
- Nasolabial folds and marionette lines
- Creases around the mouth
- Sagging jowls and jawline
- Drooping cheeks
- Neck bands
- Thinning lips and lip lines
PDO threading can also be used in other areas of the body with sagging skin.
An alternative to surgery
Because of their speed, convenience, and minimal recovery compared to a surgical facelift, PDO thread lifts are gaining popularity. Before recommending a PDO thread lift, we review your health history and evaluate your skin.
Our team works with you to establish a maintenance schedule, if desired, based on when your threads dissolve, so you maintain a seamless appearance. If you’re interested, we can also recommend additional treatments to help you meet your aesthetic goals.
