PDO Thread Lifts are an ideal non-surgical way to lift skin that hangs and droops. They’re optimal for people who have concerns with neck and face skin that’s no longer as resilient as it was in the past. People who have cheeks or jowls that droop noticeably often opt for thread lifts. If the area around your eyes constantly makes you look fatigued and stressed out, then a thread lift may be able to reverse signs of aging.

PDO Threads - Get Cinched at Momma's

Until recently, the only way to address problems caused by facial skin laxity—such as jowls and drooping cheeks—was facelift surgery. PDO threads can lift, reshape or redefine the contour of the face, particularly in the jawline, jowls, and cheek areas.

The Ideal Thread Lift Candidate: The typical thread lift candidate is in their 40’s or 50’s. If you’re beginning to see signs of sagging skin, now is the time to discuss PDO threads in a one-on-one consultation. Momma will examine your skin, discuss your treatment goals, and recommend the ideal path. This may be PDO threads, another procedure, or a combination of several treatments – no matter the case, we’ll assist you in discovering the journey that is both comfortable and appropriate for your needs.

What is a thread lift?

PDO threads utilize thin, biodegradable threads made of polydioxanone to anchor the sagging facial fat tissues, providing added support to the underlying structures for a noticeable lift. The PDO thread procedure works by first stimulating inflammation right after the threads have been placed. The inflammation stimulates the skin and tissue to respond through a healing process. As the skin heals, it rebuilds collagen and strengthens the skin’s structure. The implanted threads will reabsorb and completely heal in 4-6 months without leaving any scar tissues behind. 

 

This treatment is most commonly referred to as a non-surgical facelift, but we are now able to lift and tighten tissue all over the body. We can now use PDO threads to lift many areas on the body, including the face and neck, including above the knees and on the stomach, arms, and buttocks.

The threads are introduced into the skin’s deeper layers where they begin to exert different actions including:

  • Instant skin lifting

  • Stimulation of collagen and cellular renewal that promotes new tissue growth to reduce fine lines and promote elasticity

  • Skin tightening due to contraction of fat tissue

 

The PDO threads gradually disappear after six months through a simple hydrolysis process where the body absorbs them. The improved facial contours are maintained for as long as three to six months, sometimes more because of the deeper cellular rejuvenation effects.

While new collagen is produced, tissue growth and skin microcirculation are facilitated. The PDO threads also cause contraction of fat tissue which leads to the desired skin tightening effect.

Q: HOW LONG DOES IT LAST? The PDO Thread Lift works by redefining the facial contours and inducing collagen production creating a lifting effect which lasts for up to 2 – 3 years.

Q: WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE? There are multiple causes that physically age us. Therefore, one must always consider a combination approach to aesthetic enhancement as there is no magic bullet or one modality that “does it all,” not even cosmetic surgery.  Momma might also suggest neuromodulators to relax muscles that affect your skin or facial contours, or refilling areas of volume loss.

Your face is thoroughly cleaned and prepped. Local anesthetic is applied on your skin and sometimes gently injected into entry points for the threads. A tiny pilot hole is made with a needle and a smooth-tipped microcannula is inserted through this hole to place barbed threads just beneath your skin. Momma will reposition your skin with just the right amount of gentle pressure as the cannula is removed, leaving the barbed PDO thread behind to grab onto the underside of your skin. This will hold it in a lifted position. Smooth PDO threads can be placed with a smaller needle or cannula.

 

The most common side effects may include:

  •         Mild discomfort, swelling, redness or bruising

  •         A tightness sensation

  •         Mild sharp sensation from the lifting thread barbs

  •         Occasional “ribboning” of the skin—this is temporary, of course

  •         Failure to achieve the expected result. This is not a surgical facelift.

 

After the procedure, tiny bandages are applied over the entry sites. Elastic kinesiology tape with adhesive may be applied to relieve some of the pressure on the repositioned skin.  This can be removed when you get home, though we recommend you keep it on for at least 12-24 hours if possible. Photographs will be taken before and after your procedure to evaluate results.

Arm (Batwing) Feather Lift

Arm tightening with PDO threads, also known as the feather lift, is an excellent, minimally-invasive alternative to a traditional arm lift. With this option, there are multiple advantages such as little downtime, no visible side effects, no need for anesthesia, and a higher degree of precision.

Are you a Candidate? 

Those who wish to rejuvenate and/or lift their skin, increase their skin volume, and smooth out their wrinkles may be eligible for this procedure. The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for arm tightening with PDO threads is to schedule a consultation so we can evaluate the skin and fat on your upper arms.

What is the Treatment like? 

For arm tightening threads are inserted into the skin to lift and support it. Your body begins to develop new collagen and fibrous tissue shortly after the PDO threads are inserted into the upper arm area. The result is a firmer, younger appearance. This procedure can also be supplemented with other therapies such as laser skin treatment and injectables for a fully revitalized appearance. Results tend to last from six months to a full year, after which a sequence of follow-up treatments can help you maintain the optimal effects.

Butt PDO Thread Lift
Butt Thread Lift

When PDO threads are applied to the buttock, the skin is lifted to help reduce the appearance of sagging and laxity. When these lifting threads are used in conjunction with volumizing threads and our post treatment protocol results that improve your silloutte can definitely be noticed. PDO threads are completely invisible and absorbable within 4-6 months, but the structural support can last from 8-24 months.

With this option, there are multiple advantages such as little downtime, no visible side effects, no need for anesthesia, and a higher degree of precision.

What are the Benefits: 

  • Lift

  • Volumize

  • Contour

What is the Treatment like? 

After an initial consult for eligibility of procedure, a skin assessment is performed. The skin is then cleansed and vector points are marked on the buttock for optimal thread placement. Once the area is anesthetized for comfort, threads are placed under the skin following the line of the marked vectors. After all the threads are placed, the overlying skin is massaged to activate and lock all the threads in place. Symmetry of the procedure is reevaluated before the suspended threads are cut and hidden underneath the skin. Procedure can vary from 45-60 minutes. Post-treatment: no downtime or scars. Minimal pain can be expected with aching to the area for up to one week post procedures.

One session is recommended, however, during the two week follow-up additional threads can be placed for desired results.
