How Do PDO Thread Lifts Compare to Surgery?

Getting a facelift can be arduous. Since it involves general anesthesia and cutting, the process can be tasking on the body. In most cases, you would need at least a couple of weeks of recovery to get back to normal.

PDO Thread Lifts are a good alternative because they require local anesthesia and don’t require any downtime. After your procedure, you are free to go about the rest of your day. That said, it’s important to remember that this method won’t give you surgical results. With PDO, your skin tightening will be subtle.

What Is the Process Like?

We use LesEncres PDO Thread Lifts at Alchemy Wellness. These are hypodermic needles that feature polydioxanone sutures. These sutures are safe to use, and in fact, are the standard sutures used during cardiac surgery.

The treatment is FDA-approved and simple to perform. The PDO Thread Lift procedure starts with a small injection of local anesthesia. After the numbing, the suture is placed just below the skin. When placed under the epidermis, the added threads provide an instant tightening and smoothing effect, giving your skin a natural lift. 

How Long Do PDO Thread Lifts Last?

With a treatment time of only 15-30 minutes, you would think that the benefits wouldn’t last too long. However, the benefits of this procedure can be seen right away, with the best results being visible in 1-2 weeks!

The sutures dissolve over the course of 4-6 months. While in the process, they stimulate your body to create more collagen. Your skin is continually renewed as more collagen is made. The best part is that PDO Thread Lifts can be repeated to keep the results going for as long as possible.
