How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last?

A thread lift offers a noninvasive outpatient procedure that gives your face the kind of lift and contouring people think you can only achieve with a facelift. While the results of a PDO thread lift are not as dramatic as a facelift, the procedure requires no surgery and little to no downtime.

What is a PDO Thread Lift?

A thread lift injects sutures made of material that can be absorbed by the body, then uses these sutures to lift and contour the skin. These injectable sutures require no invasive procedures and no long recovery time. Even after these sutures have been broken down by the body, the results of your thread lift can continue to improve. 

How Does a PDO Thread Lift Work?

This procedure injects threads of a bioabsorbable, non-reactive material called PDO under the skin. These threads lift the skin and provide immediate tightening and more youthful contours.

In addition to tightening and lifting the skin, a PDO thread lift also stimulates the body to produce new collagen fibers in the area around the threads. This collagen makes skin look fuller and healthier, and it also maintains the lift and improvements of the thread lift for months after the threads have dissolved. 

How Long Does a Thread Lift Last?

The injectable PDO sutures stay in the body for four to six months. The collagen process they stimulate will continue, and people can continue to see results for over a year after the treatment. Once triggered, collagen production can continue for several months, so you may see improvements in your appearance even after the sutures have departed. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Thread Lift?

If you have sagging skin or otherwise want to see a more lifted facial appearance, a thread lift may be for you. Good candidates are generally in good health, non-smokers, and have healthy expectations about their results.

Is There Any Downtime After a PDO Thread Lift?

The procedure itself takes 30 to 45 minutes, and you can return to work or do other activities afterward. You may experience some swelling, bruising, or redness in the treated area for a few days. The convenience and lack of healing time often encourage people to choose this noninvasive procedure over a much more invasive facelift. 

What Results Can I Expect From a PDO Thread Lift?

You can expect to see immediate lift and contouring in the treated areas of the face, which may include the cheeks, jawline, or other areas. In addition, you will see improved fullness and firmness as new collagen develops around the threads and helps to boost and add fullness to the skin.
