Are PDO Threads worth it?
I am asked this question quite often. My short answer is Yes – for some areas with particular skin concerns. And it has to be done properly!
What are PDO threads?
PDO Mono Threads are quite new, innovative approach to skin rejuvenation that have become increasingly popular in recent years. These threads are made of polydioxanone (PDO), a biodegradable material that has been used for many years in the medical field for sutures.
PDO threads are a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves inserting absorbable threads under the skin to lift and tighten sagging skin, reduce fine lines, and improve overall skin texture.
Where can PDO threads be used?
PDO Mono Threads can be used on a variety of areas on the face and body, including the forehead, eyebrows, cheeks, jowls, under chin also known as Turkey neck, arms, saggy tummy and knees. They are perfect for those who want to avoid more invasive procedures such as a facelift or body lift surgery, but still want to achieve a more youthful, lifted appearance.
What is the downtime after threads treatment?
The downtime associated with PDO Mono Threads is minimal, with most patients able to return to their daily activities next day with a bit of natural mineral make up. Another benefit of PDO Mono Threads is that they not only lift the skin, but also promote collagen production. As the body’s natural response to the threads, collagen is produced, which helps to firm and tighten the skin even further. This means that the effects of PDO Mono Threads can last much longer than other skin rejuvenation treatments – usually around 12 months.
Are PDO threads good fit for me?
Whether PDO threads are worth it depends on individual preferences and goals. PDO threads can be a good option for people who are looking for a non-surgical way to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance, but are not ready for more invasive procedures such as a facelift. PDO threads may also be a good option for people who are looking for a temporary solution to address minor skin sagging or fine lines.
However, it is important to note that PDO threads are not a permanent solution, and the effects may not be as dramatic as a surgical facelift. Additionally, the procedure carries some risks and potential complications, such as bruising, swelling, infection, and thread migration.
Ultimately, whether PDO threads are worth it is a personal decision that should be made in consultation with a qualified healthcare professional who can evaluate your individual needs and goals and help you determine the best course of action.
