PDO’s result in smoother firmer skin with better texture. PDO’s can be used to elevate and support mild droopy areas in the face. The overall result is a more vibrant youthful look. Different types of threads are used depending on what the desired result is. Some threads are used to tighten the skin and eliminate fine lines and soften wrinkles and others are used to elevate tissues.
While thread lifts certainly produce visible changes, they will generally only lift the face by a few millimeters; as such, they create a more subtle and natural looking end result. Thread lifts are therefore best suited to patients who are dealing with mild to moderate, rather than severe, signs of skin laxity. Refrain from heavy exercise for 24 hours after procedure. Stop taking any blood thinners , fish oil, vitamin E, and anti-inflammatory ten days before treatment medication. Consult with your doctor before you stop any medications. Avoid alcohol and red wine three days before treatment. Eating fresh pineapple and taking arnica bromelain tablets 3-5 days before procedure can reduce the chance of bruising.
Do not rub area that was treated. Slight bruising and redness are common side effect of PDO’S. These should resolve after a couple of days. Tylenol can be used for headaches and arnica tablets/creams can be used for bruising. asymmetry of the area and tissue is common and will resolve on their own. Call the office if any threads start to extrude, have increasing pain or nodules over the area.
