PDO Threads Q & A

What are PDO threads?

PDO threads available at L’Arte Di Vivere consist of biocompatible polydioxanone materials. They are tiny threads your specialist inserts under your skin to lift and tighten it without surgery, pain, or long recovery periods. The procedure is simple and an exceptional alternative to surgical facelifts. It offers superior anti-aging results.

What are the benefits of PDO threads?

PDO threads provide the following cosmetic benefits for men and women:

  • Tighter skin
  • Lifted appearance
  • Skin revitalization
  • Younger-looking appearance
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Reduced sagging
  • More collagen and elastin production
  • Self-confidence
  • Better quality of life

PDO threads can lift sagging skin on your face, under the chin, jaw, eyes, cheeks, and neck. This treatment can take years off your appearance to achieve dramatic outcomes.

Am I a candidate for PDO threads?

Your L’Arte Di Vivere specialist examines your face and neck, discusses your medical history, and asks about your beauty goals. They let you know what to expect during the procedure and tailor each cosmetic treatment to your unique needs. You might be a candidate for multiple aesthetic procedures, such as dermal fillers and laser treatments. 

What should I expect during PDO thread lifts?

During PDO thread lifts, you rest comfortably in a reclining chair while your specialist cleans and numbs the treatment area to ensure maximum comfort. They gently insert PDO threads under your skin in targeted areas to lift and tighten it before securing the threads in place. The procedure may last about 45 minutes or less.

What happens after I receive PDO threads?

You might want to take it easy the rest of the day, but you can still return to typical daily activities. Redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness are common temporary side effects of PDO threads. As skin cells regenerate and the swelling subsides, your results continue to improve. The PDO threads dissolve over time. 

Your results may last a year or longer, though individualized results often vary. Follow up with your L’Arte Di Vivere provider as needed to maintain long-lasting revitalizing outcomes.
