PDO Thread Lifts

Are you ready to achieve noticeable improvements in your skin’s tightness and tone but aren’t ready for plastic surgery? If so, a PDO Thread Lift might be the right approach and is one of many services available from the team at Freya’s Lair Medical Spa.

A PDO thread lift is a revolutionary new treatment in the world of aesthetics, but PDO threads themselves have been used safely for decades for various applications, like treating gynecological disorders or suturing incisions after medical procedures. When used as an aesthetic treatment, there are a few things you should know.

First, it mechanically results in instant skin lifting. Second, it contracts fat tissue to result in instant skin tightening. Third, it promotes collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles and more elastic skin.

PDO & Silhouette Thread Lift

What is a PDO thread lift?

A thread lift is an advanced medical aesthetics treatment that places dissolvable sutures into the deeper layers of your skin. These sutures act to lift facial tissues, which in turn alters the draping of your skin.

A PDO thread lift delivers an instant lifting and tightening effect. In the hands of the skilled practitioners at Freya’s Lair Medical Spa, thread lifts help suspend facial tissues to help you look younger with just one procedure.

The sutures are polydioxanone (PDO), a medical-grade material.

What are Silhouette Instalift threads?

Non-surgical thread lift that offers immediate lift and collagen production. Resorbable PLGA threads contain a bidirectional micro-cone that instantly lifts the skin and restores volume overtime. Best when used in combination with PDO threads, amount needed is varied client to client.

Why choose a PDO Thread Lift?

A PDO Thread Lift creates beautiful results without the risks associated with cosmetic surgery. There’s no need for advance preparation, general anesthesia, or extensive recovery time.

Your friends and loved ones will notice you look refreshed and well-rested, but there is no risk of emerging from your treatment looking “overdone” or “stretched.” You can expect your results to last approximately one year.

What happens during a PDO Thread Lift?

When you arrive at Freya’s Lair Medical Spa, you receive a local anesthetic to ensure you are comfortable from start to finish. Once the area is numb, your practitioner uses a hollow needle or cannula to insert the PDO threads into the tissues beneath the surface of your skin.

The placement of these threads depends on the degree of lifting you desire and the unique anatomy of your face. The threads come in various types, including smooth, twist, and barbed. Your practitioner chooses the option that is right for you, and use as many as needed.

Expect a degree of bruising and swelling for a few days after your Thread Lift. You can then see the lifting effects. The threads slowly dissolve, but your body responds to thread placement with renewed collagen production, so you continue to see effects for several months after your procedure.

How Long Does It Take?

One of the best things about this treatment is it only takes around 1 hour. After that, you’re free to go back to work or whatever else you had scheduled for the rest of your day.

Is This Treatment Safe?

This treatment is completely safe. It is approved by the FDA for safety and efficiency. Moreover, hundreds of thousands of treatments have been performed and there are no reports of allergic reactions, sensitivities to the threads, or serious side effects or risks.

What do I need to Do Before Treatment?

Since PDO thread lifts are non-invasive, there isn’t a lot you need to do to prepare. However, there are some precautionary measures you can take to ensure the best results from your treatment. Here are things you should avoid one to two days before treatment:

  • Alcohol
  • Ginko
  • Omega fish oil supplements
  • Chinese medicine
  • Vitamin E
  • High-intensity workouts
  • Steam rooms and saunas

What Do I Need to Do After Treatment?

After the treatment we recommend to take it easy and relax. This treatment may feel foreign to client once the threads are place so it is recommended to have soft foods, keep the face relaxed, no workouts for a week, and sleep face up for best results. Where the threads are placed can get sensitive, and if not taken care of they can leave a mark, we sell stem cells to help further protect and enhance your results.
