What are PDO threads?

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a type of biodegradable suture. Surgeons have been using PDO threads to close internal incisions for years. More recently, aesthetic experts use PDO threads to lift and tighten the skin around the face. 

When placed in the skin, PDO threads trigger the production of collagen, the protein that keeps your youthful skin strong and resilient. As you get older, your skin’s production of collagen slows down, leading to loose, saggy skin.

The PDO threads instantly rejuvenate your look by lifting and tightening your skin. Then, as the threads dissolve, the added collagen maintains your youthful look. 

I have jowls. Am I a candidate for PDO threads?

The team at DMA Health & Wellness determines if you’re a candidate for PDO threads after performing a good-faith exam. Jowls and droopy cheeks occur because of collagen loss. 

The team may consider you a candidate for PDO threads if you have mild to moderate skin laxity that no longer responds to other skin rejuvenating treatments like microneedling or neurotoxins like Botox®

They may also recommend PDO threads if you’re not a candidate for a surgical facelift. 

What can I expect when getting PDO threads?

The team at DMA Health & Wellness customizes your PDO thread treatment plan after mapping your face to determine the best placement for the sutures. They clean the skin with an antibacterial agent and numb the area with a local anesthetic.

Your provider expertly and carefully places the PDO threads to lift and tighten your skin around your neck, jaw, cheeks, and eyes. 

You can drive yourself home after the placement of your PDO threads. You may have swelling and bruising following your procedure, but these side effects disappear within a day or two.  

You should see improvements in your look right away. 

How long do results from PDO threads last?

Results from PDO threads vary and depend on many factors like your age and the health of your skin. However, PDO threads may keep you looking younger for three or more years. 

The team at DMA Health & Wellness recommends combining your PDO threads with medical-grade skin care products to prolong your results.
