PDO Threads: Body and Face

Lift, tighten and rejuvenate with non-surgical treatments!

PDO threads are an alternative to a surgical face or body lift and can address skin laxity in various areas of the face and body for both men and women. Here at New Medical Spa in Short Pump, VA., we use PDO threads to help improve the appearance of sagging or drooping skin, stimulate collagen production and enhance your natural beauty.

For patients who are not ready to undergo more aggressive, surgical treatment options, PDO thread lifts are an ideal solution. Although the effects from a thread lift will be temporary and not as dramatic as a facelift, improvement in the appearance of sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles can be seen gradually as the procedure stimulates natural collagen production.

PDO Threads are placed under the skin to lift a specific area. The area treated and the severity of the condition treated will determine how many PDO threads are needed to give the client optimal results. PDO threads are commonly placed in the cheeks, brows, neck, abdomen, thighs and other areas of the body. This treatment is considered minimally invasive and will result in little to no downtime. The lift from the PDO threads can be seen immediately, however as the threads stimulate collagen production, optimal results will be achieved with time.

This minimally-invasive procedure is the leading alternative to surgical facelifts and will help you restore your confidence! Each treatment plan here at New Medical Spa is fully customized to your unique body and goals.

What does a PDO Thread Lift do?

PDO Thread Lift treatments are an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. After six months, the threads will be absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place.

How do PDO Thread Lifts work?

PDO threads are inserted underneath the skin and then absorbed over the course of six months while stimulating collagen production. The procedure is commonly known as a ‘lunchtime facelift’ as it’s a quick in-office procedure with minimal downtime compared to a surgical facelift.

What results can I expect from PDO Threads?

PDO thread results can be seen immediately after treatment. Clients will see optimal results with time as the threads stimulate collagen overtime.

Are PDO thread lifts permanent?

No, PDO thread lifts are not permanent. As an alternative to an invasive surgery, the results from this non-surgical treatment will fade overtime. Results will vary with each individual based on the area treated, the number of threads used and other genetic factors.

How many sessions will I need?

In just one treatment a New Medical Spa medical provider can help you achieve your desired results!

How long does treatment take?

PDO Threads can be completed in about 30 minutes depending on the area or areas treated in a singular session.

Are PDO threads safe?

PDO threads are a safe and effective procedure and are a great alternative to invasive surgeries.

How long do PDO Threads last?

The lifting effect is at its peak after 6 months when collagen has formed around the threads, and lasts between 2-3 years

How long does the treatment take?

Results last 9-12 months depending on the area treated.

What are the side effects of a PDO Thread Lift?

Side effects are minimal but may include swelling and bruising that lasts 2-3 days, and patients can continue with normal activities immediately after.
