Are you ready to discover the transformative power of PDO Threads? At Cosmetic Surgical Arts & Rejuvenation in Oklahoma City, we’re proud to offer this revolutionary procedure that can help you achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Understanding PDO Threads
PDO (Polydioxanone) Threads are absorbable threads that work wonders beneath the surface of your skin. By inducing collagen production in your body, PDO Threads can lift, tighten, or add volume to the treated area. This minimally invasive procedure offers natural-looking results with a short downtime.
Types of PDO Threads
We utilize Nova Threads, which come in three varieties, each designed for a specific effect:
- Smooth Nova Threads: These threads add volume by boosting collagen production, creating a natural and three-dimensional volume distribution. They are often injected in a mesh of threads.
- Smooth-Twisted Nova Threads: Perfect for adding targeted volume, such as redefining lip shape and enhancing volume.
- Barbed Nova Threads: These threads smoothly lift and tighten the skin by stimulating collagen to contract below the skin’s surface.
PDO Threads Address Various Concerns
PDO Threads are versatile and can address a range of aesthetic concerns:
Loose Skin in the Cheeks and Jawline
PDO Threads stimulate collagen, creating a natural lift and tightening effect in the cheeks and jawline. The procedure offers minimal downtime, delivering safe and effective results.
Restore three-dimensional lift and volume to your cheeks with PDO Threads. They can replace lost volume and create tightening below the skin’s surface, building a robust collagen support system.
Loose and Wrinkled Skin Around the Eyes and Crow’s Feet
While Botox can relax overactive eye muscles, PDO Threads offer a comprehensive solution for set-in lines and wrinkles around the eyes. They add volume, restore collagen, and tighten the skin effectively.
PDO Threads provide precise control for lifting sections of the brows, resulting in a natural-looking outcome. They are particularly useful for lifting the lateral brow.
Lip Shape and Definition (Feathered Lip Edges)
PDO Threads in the lips can be used to redefine feathered lip borders, in addition to adding volume. The result is much longer-lasting than a dermal filler, and creates a smooth, natural look.
Lip Lines and Smoker’s Lines
A mesh of nova threads can be used to support this delicate skin and help collagen regrow throughout the upper lip, smoothing away wrinkles and firming up the skin
PDO Threads can lift and support drooping, thin skin. Combined with dermal fillers like Sculptra, PDO Threads can be used to create a non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) result, which is particularly helpful for patients who are too thin to undergo traditional fat transfer for BBL techniques.
PDO Threads can restore skin tone and texture, eliminating crepey skin, by promoting the growth of new collagen.
Horizontal Neck Bands (also called necklace lines)
PDO Threads can be used throughout the neck to improve skin smoothness and eliminate wrinkles. A mesh of smooth PDO threads is used to support the skin and rebuild collagen throughout the area.
Wrinkled, Loose Skin Around the Elbows or Knees
Loose skin around the elbows and knees can be difficult to tighten, and there are very few solutions that offer a good result without unsightly scars. PDO Threads offer a non-surgical option to not only lift and tighten the skin but also improve skin thickness and quality.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for PDO Threads?
An ideal candidate for PDO Threads has:
- Mild to moderate sagging, volume loss, or skin texture concerns
- Not had neurotoxins (botox) or dermal fillers within the previous two weeks
- Not taking blood thinners for at least the past 2 weeks
Are Thread Lifts Safe?
Yes, PDO Threads are completely safe and have been FDA-Approved. The PDO Thread material has been used for years in dissolving sutures, and the cosmetic applications described on this page have been used for years in Europe with great success. PDO Threads should completely dissolve within 6 months following their insertion, leaving behind new collagen in their place.
Many years ago, permanent sutures were used to lift the face and neck. These thread lifts lost FDA-Approval because the permanent nature of these procedures caused problems in the long term. Nova PDO Threads are completely dissolvable and reversible, making them a safe alternative.
Expected Results and Longevity of Results
Results from your Nova PDO Threads are immediately visible and will continue to improve over a period of 6 months, as they induce collagen production. With Nova PDO Threads, You can expect your results to last up to 18 months and can prolong and improve your results with a touch-up at 1 year.
Post-Procedure Care and Recovery from PDO Threads
Most Nova PDO Threads procedures will not require more than one night off from normal work or social activities. Occasionally, patients may experience swelling or bruising which lasts longer than 24 hours. There are certain patients and certain injection sites that are at higher risk for prolonged swelling or bruising than others. Your physician will discuss recovery expectations in greater detail during your consultation.
