What is a PDO Thread Lift?
As we age, our skin slowly becomes more and more lax, which can completely change the tone and expression of our face. Due to this loose skin, many people turn to a surgical facelift. However, this requires encountering all of the risks of surgery, as well as going through an extensive recovery time and accepting the idea of scarring. Fortunately, this is not the only option. At Nadomi Medspa, we offer a PDO thread lift, which is a nonsurgical treatment that can tighten moderate amounts of loose skin on the face using dissolvable sutures that stimulate the growth of lost tissue and collagen. Dr. Nada Zaknoun is highly experienced in utilizing this procedure to help our patients in Wareham, MA reach their aesthetic goals.

Am I a Candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?
Typically, patients who are considered ideal for this procedure have mild to moderate sagging of their facial skin and would like to enhance their appearance without undergoing surgery. PDO thread lifts can be especially beneficial in patients who are noticing the first signs of aging and would like to put a stop to it before it gets any more severe. The treatment can be used to enhance the appearance of a number of features, such as smoker's lines, nasolabial folds, and moderate jowls. The best way to know whether or not this procedure will be beneficial for you is to schedule a consultation with our expert team.
How is a PDO Thread Lift Performed?
PDO thread lifts are performed in-office using only local anesthesia to ensure our patients feel comfortable at all times. A member of our staff will mark your face with the entrance and exit points of the sutures, at which point, a fine needle will be inserted through each of these marks of the skin. Once the skin has been threaded, we will pull lightly on the sutures to lift the skin and enhance the appearance. Generally, this procedure lasts for about an hour, though the length can vary from one patient to another, depending on a number of factors, including the severity of the skin laxity, as well as the number of areas being treated.
What Results Can I Expect from a PDO Thread Lift?
Unlike surgical procedures, the results of a PDO thread lift are visible at the immediate conclusion of the session. However, it can take up to 2 – 3 months before the final results are visible. This is due to the fact that the threads themselves are actually improving the quality of the skin as they slowly dissolve away. Patients usually notice tighter skin that looks younger and more lively than before. There may be a bit of residual soreness around the puncture points of the sutures, though this should subside within 1 – 2 weeks. There is no downtime associated with this procedure. Patients are free to return home, to work, or wherever their schedule takes them. Results usually last for at least a year, though they do depend on the patient.
