As you age, your skin gets thinner. Aging causes it to lose its suppleness and elasticity. Over time, this creates noticeable wrinkles on your face. Some people undergo treatments like laser skin resurfacing or a facelift to remedy the situation.
Recently, a new, minimally invasive procedure has emerged as an effective alternative. Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifting is a cosmetic procedure that inserts medical-grade threads made with biocompatible materials under the skin to pull it up. It tightens the skin and encourages the production of new collagen, resulting in younger-looking skin over time.
Since PDO thread lifting can be accomplished in as little as 30 minutes, more people are choosing it over other cosmetic procedures. If you’re interested in undergoing this procedure, there are some things you’ll need to know to prepare for recovery.
Once you’ve found a practitioner with an FDA-cleared PDO thread distributor, you will receive an action plan. This is based on your skin type and the kind of threading that will be done to it. Although your practitioner will have specific instructions, the following applies to all:
Give yourself some downtime before your thread lift appointment. These temporary lifestyle changes are necessary to make sure the procedure goes smoothly.
A PDO thread lift is an outpatient procedure, with a recovery time of two days to a week. In addition to your practitioner’s instructions, there are general guidelines to follow to make the process go smoothly and ensure the best results.
Following these instructions will help you manage the healing time after your PDO thread lift procedure. Aside from avoiding side effects like inflammation, it allows your skin time to rest and get used to the changes.
Skin will get thinner and less vibrant with age, but this doesn’t mean you have to leave it that way. A PDO thread lift is one of the ways you can lessen or remove wrinkles without going under the knife. You just have to make sure that the right materials are used in the procedure.
When you speak with your cosmetic practitioner, ask them where they get their supplies. PDO Max is one of the only companies in North America that carries FDA-cleared polydioxanone threads-in-cannula. They have been holding training workshops for this procedure for several years now. Make sure your practitioner sources their materials from a company who is FDA cleared for threads-in-cannula.
