PDO Thread Lift
About PDO Threads
At Glow by Monique Savill, we offer advanced PDO Threads Treatment to help you achieve a youthful and rejuvenated appearance. PDO (Polydioxanone) Threads are a non-surgical cosmetic treatment designed to firm sagging skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and restore facial contours. This innovative procedure has gained popularity for its effectiveness and natural-looking results.
What are PDO Threads?
PDO Threads are medical-grade sutures made from a biocompatible material called polydioxanone. These sutures are carefully inserted into the skin to provide a lifting effect. PDO Threads have a dual action – they physically lift and tighten the skin while stimulating the production of collagen, a key protein responsible for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness.
PDO Threads Treatment can be used to address various areas of concern, including:
During your consultation, our practitioner will evaluate your specific needs and recommend the most suitable treatment areas to achieve your desired results.
How Do PDO Threads Work?
During a PDO Threads treatment, our experienced practitioners strategically insert the threads into specific areas of the face or body, depending on your treatment goals. The threads act as a support structure, lifting and repositioning sagging skin. As the threads dissolve over time, they trigger the body’s natural healing response, stimulating collagen synthesis. This process further improves the skin’s texture, tone, and overall youthfulness.
What to Expect?
When you choose PDO Threads Treatment at Glow by Monique Savill, you can expect a comprehensive and personalized experience. The procedure begins with an initial consultation, during which our skilled practitioner will assess your concerns, discuss your desired outcomes, and develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
During the treatment itself, topical local anesthesia is applied to ensure your comfort. The PDO Threads are carefully inserted into the targeted areas, and you may experience minimal discomfort or temporary swelling and bruising during the procedure. The treatment time varies depending on the areas being treated, but it is generally quick and convenient, often taking less than an hour.
Following a PDO Threads Treatment, you will notice an immediate lifting effect as the threads elevate your skin. Over time, the production of new collagen will further enhance the results, resulting in improved skin texture and tightness. The full benefits of the treatment will continue to develop over the following weeks and can last up to 12 months, depending on various factors such as individual skin characteristics and lifestyle choices.
To ensure optimal results and a smooth recovery, our team will provide you with comprehensive aftercare instructions. This may include avoiding excessive facial movements, refraining from strenuous activities for a few days, and following a proper skincare routine. Our experts will also schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and address any concerns you may have.
PDO Threads are suitable for individuals who are experiencing mild to moderate sagging skin, wrinkles, or loss of facial volume. However, the best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate is to schedule a consultation with our experienced practitioner. They will assess your skin condition, discuss your goals, and recommend the most appropriate treatment options for you.
You will notice an immediate improvement in the treated areas due to the lifting effect of the threads. However, the full results of PDO Threads treatment will become more apparent as your body produces new collagen. This process typically takes 8 to 12 weeks, and you will continue to see gradual improvement in your skin texture and tightness during this time.
The duration of a PDO Thread treatment can vary depending on the number of threads and the treatment area. Generally, the procedure takes approximately 30 minutes to an hour. Our practitioner will provide you with a more accurate time estimate during your consultation.
The number of PDO Thread treatments required can vary depending on your specific needs and desired results. While some individuals may achieve their desired outcome with a single treatment, others may benefit from multiple sessions spaced several months apart. Usually people require 1 to 4 treatments spaced 2-3 weeks apart. Our practitioner will assess your individual condition and discuss the recommended treatment plan during your consultation.
The number of PDO Threads required depends on your unique concerns, treatment goals, and the areas being addressed. Some individuals may require a few threads for targeted results, while others may benefit from a higher number of threads for a more comprehensive lift. Our experienced practitioner will evaluate your needs and recommend the appropriate number of threads during your consultation.
After a PDO Thread treatment, you may experience some mild swelling, bruising, or soreness in the treated area. These effects are temporary and typically subside within a few days. You can resume your daily activities immediately following the procedure, but it is advised to avoid strenuous exercise for a few days. Our team will provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions to ensure optimal healing and results.
As a precautionary measure, it is generally not recommended to undergo cosmetic injectable treatments, including PDO Threads, while pregnant or breastfeeding. It is important to prioritize the health and safety of both you and your baby during this period. We advise waiting until after pregnancy and breastfeeding to pursue these treatments.
PDO Threads treatment typically involves minimal downtime. You may experience some mild swelling, bruising, or soreness in the treated area, but these effects are temporary and generally resolve within a few days. Most individuals can resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, it is recommended to avoid intense physical exercise and activities that may put pressure on the treated area for a few days.
You will notice an immediate lifting effect after your PDO Thread treatment. However, the full results will become more apparent as your body produces new collagen over time. Significant improvement in skin texture, tightness, and rejuvenation can usually be observed within a few weeks to months following the treatment.
PDO threads and fillers have distinct purposes and advantages. PDO threads excel at lifting and tightening sagging skin, providing some immediate results and stimulating collagen production for long-term benefits. They are effective for areas requiring lift and contouring. Fillers, on the other hand, are primarily used to restore volume, fill lines, and enhance facial features. The choice between PDO threads and fillers depends on individual goals and the specific concerns to be addressed, and they can be combined for comprehensive rejuvenation.
