PDO Thread Lift Q&A

What is a PDO thread lift?

A thread lift addresses lax, sagging skin without injections or surgery. The FDA-approved treatment uses an absorbable barbed suture material to lift and tighten areas of your face and body where loose skin created sagging and bags.

The Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Thread (MINT™) PDO thread lift also revitalizes the underlying structure of your complexion. 

The process stimulates collagen production and triggers neovascularization, the formation of new blood vessels to enrich your skin. Over time, the treatment helps soften wrinkles and give skin a firmer, tighter look.

What areas does a PDO thread lift address?

A PDO thread lift is very versatile and can enhance the appearance of your face, chest, arms, legs, and neck. Potential benefits of the treatment include:

  • Tighter jawline
  • Softer smile lines
  • Smoother neckline
  • Firmer complexion

The thread lift can also give you the appearance of higher cheekbones.

What happens in a PDO thread lift?

Your provider at Chicque Aesthetics begins by numbing your treatment areas to prevent any discomfort. They insert barbed suture threads underneath your skin. The barbs catch onto and lift sagging skin, creating an instant tightening effect. The treatment takes around 15 minutes.

The threads also trigger your body’s natural healing response by creating tiny tears below the surface of your skin. As your body heals, it naturally produces more collagen and elastin. 

In time, these threads naturally dissolve, eliminating the need to have them removed.

How long do PDO thread lift results last?

Benefits may last for up to a year after your initial treatment, though individual results vary. Your provider at Chicque Aesthetics discusses the results you may expect after your thread lift.

Does a PDO thread lift require downtime?

Because a thread lift is minimally invasive, you can expect little to no downtime following your treatment. Your provider may recommend applying an ice pack immediately after your procedure to minimize the potential for swelling or discomfort.

If you're unhappy with lax, sagging skin but leary of invasive surgery, it's time to see if a PDO thread lift is right for you. Call Chicque Aesthetics today to book your consultation.
