As we age, our skin will eventually begin to sag. When this happens, some people will turn to surgical solutions, such as a facelift. While these procedures do lead to stunning results, they also require extensive recovery time, are expensive, and may leave behind scars. Fortunately, surgery is not the only option. At Beyond Medical Spa & Wellness Center, we offer an alternative called a PDO Thread Treatment- which is non-surgical cosmetic treatment used for facial rejuvenation purposes.

PDO threads are dissolvable and are primarily used for stimulating collagen production, which helps improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They provide a subtle lifting effect, but their main focus is on skin rejuvenation and texture improvement. Insertion of the threads is minimally invasive and are placed to provide structure and improve skin texture. The threads continue to work as they dissolve by stimulating collagen production, which improves skin elasticity and leads to a more youthful appearance. The end result is making you look younger in a natural way that reverses the hands of time.

How Is The PDO Thread Treatment Performed?

Before the procedure begins, your Provider will provide a full consultation and discuss your treatment goals and desired outcomes.  As part of the preparation, your Provider will mark the entrance points on your face, and you will be given a numbing lotion to ensure your utmost comfort.

We use a synthetic type of thread, known as Polydioxanone (PDO) that is biodegradable and designed to dissolve beneath your skin. They are smooth threads and do not have barbs or cogs. We use these threads to build structure and gently lift loose skin on the face and neck, which makes the skin look tighter and younger. Due to this, the results will be noticeable at the immediate conclusion of the procedure.

However, these outcomes will only continue to improve as the PDO threads will slowly dissolve into the skin, generating the production of collagen and elastin. These proteins are incredibly beneficial when it comes to the overall health and appearance of your skin and should even further improve your results from this minimally invasive treatment.

How Long Is The Downtime? How Long Do The Threads Last?

POD Threads are minimally invasive and require less downtime and recovery compared to a facelift or other medical aesthetic treatments. Most patients are able to return to work, life, and normal activity on the same day of treatment. The effects of the dissolvable PDO Threads that we use are generally more subtle and natural-looking compared to barbed threads.  PDO Thread results typically last up to 18 months, depending on the individual and treatment area.

Treatment Goals

The primary goals of the PDO Threads are to:

  • Build collagen
  • Provide structure to sagging facial tissues/skin laxity
  • Improve facial contours
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enhance skin elasticity and skin texture
  • To address early signs of aging
