What To Expect from PDO Thread Lift in Carlsbad

The Science Behind Your Confidence.

How Does a Threadlift Work?
PDO threadlifts are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that provide our patients with the skin rejuvenation results of a facelift without any of the cutting, anesthesia, or downtime. The secret behind the threadlift is the “thread” that is used. Made of polydioxanone, a medical material that naturally dissolves over time, these threads utilize bidirectional cones to lift the structures within the face and increase collagen production in the skin. Not only does this provide our patients with an immediately lifted and refreshed look, but it also enhances their signs of aging with collagen production over the next few months. At Glow Theory Aesthetic & Dermatology Studio, we are proud to use PDO Max® and SMUTH PDO threads.
Your Glow Theory PDO Thread Lift Carlsbad Experience
Your Glow Consultation
During your private consultation with our aesthetics expert, we will take the time to determine whether threadlift treatments are right for you. In addition to taking photos of your treatment area, your aesthetics professional will develop a tailored treatment plan to help you level up your look.
Prior to your threadlift appointment, we ask our patients to avoid drinking alcohol and to stop the use of blood thinning medications including over-the-counter medications like Tylenol. Talk to your provider and medical professionals before discontinuing prescription blood thinning medications.
Before your threadlift treatment begins, we will clean your treatment areas to ensure your skin is free of any excess makeup and oils. A local anesthetic may also be administered to your treatment area at this time.
Threadlift Process
Our aesthetics professional will carefully inject the PDO threads into your treatment area using a thin, hollow needle called a cannula. After placement, the PDO threads will then be manipulated to lift the structures under the skin and provide you with a naturally youthful appearance.
After a PDO threadlift, our patients are able to return to their normal daily activities including going to work within a day or two of treatment. While swelling and bruising are to be expected, these side effects typically resolve on their own within a few days of treatment.

PDO Thread Lift FAQs

PDO threads are threads that placed under the skin to improve facial contours. They do not have barbs or needles, and thus glide beneath the skin for practically painless insertion. These single filament threads stimulate collagen production and support the skin. They can also use to target specific areas of the face. For example, they can help fill the deep crevice between the eyebrows, which can’t address with Botox alone.

PDO thread lift surgery is a revolutionary procedure that will help restore the youthful appearance of your face. The results from the procedure will last anywhere from six to nine months, depending on the type of thread used and your individual metabolism. Your provider can provide you with an estimate of how long the results will last.

The procedure typically lasts an hour. During this time, your medical staff will place threads at key areas of your face. When the procedure finished, the medical staff will remove the cannula and the PDO threads will remain. Over time, new collagen will grow around the threads and dissolve them.

In some instances, it may be beneficial to dissolve PDO threads faster. PDO threads are surgical sutures used to lift facial skin. The threads encourage the body to produce new collagen in the treated area, which further smoothers and plumps the skin. There are several options for PDO threads, so you can choose one that fits your aesthetic needs. To dissolve these threads faster, you may consider undergoing a heat therapy treatment. However, don’t try to dissolve them on your own.

PDO threads can inserted anywhere in the face, but they are particularly useful in the jawline and neck area. While the lower third of the face is difficult to treat with injectable fillers, the upper and middle parts are more likely to benefit from thread lifts. The shape of a healthy face resembles a “V” with a pronounced neck, while aging tissues begin to degrade.

A PDO thread lift is a cosmetic procedure that aims to reduce the appearance of smile lines and wrinkles. During the procedure, patients usually given a topical medical grade anesthetic to reduce discomfort. However, patients may experience tenderness after the anesthetic wears off.

PDO threads are surgical sutures made from polydioxanone. This material is naturally absorbent and allows collagen and fibrous tissue to form around the suture. Because of this, PDO thread therapy can address many cosmetic concerns. While a surgical procedure may leave some scarring, PDO threads considered safe and effective.

There is a common question, “Are PDO threads safe?” The answer to this question is a resounding “yes!” PDO threads are FDA cleared and have very few risks compared to traditional facelift surgeries. These threads contain Polydioxanone, a material that has extensively studied and proven safe for use in orthopedic, cardiovascular, and tissue engineering procedures. Any complications that occur will be minimal, and most easily treated.

The threads can stay in the skin for up to six months, and then gradually dissolve in three to four months. After that, they reabsorbed by the body and excreted in the urine. NFinders, a manufacturer of PDO threads in Korea, has made it a priority to follow international standards. Its facilities are ISO-certified and its products have received CE certification.

PDO threads FDA-approved medical sutures used to tighten loose skin and smooth over deep facial folds. They are an excellent option for people who want to achieve a more youthful look. Moreover, they offer no pain and no downtime. However, before you undergo this procedure, it is important to understand the procedure and how many threads you’ll need.

PDO threads come in different lengths, from 12 to 60mm. These inserted into the skin using blunt or sharp-tipped needles. They act as anchors when the skin lifted upward. The excess threads removed afterward. There are several types of PDO threads, and each serves a unique purpose. The provider may use barbed or non-barbed PDO threads to achieve a particular effect.
