thread is a type of synthetic, biodegradable suture that has been used in medical procedures, especially in surgery, for many years. In recent times, PDO threads have gained popularity in the field of aesthetic medicine for a procedure known as “Thread Lift” or “PDO Thread Lift.”
Here’s how a PDO thread lift works:
1. Procedure: Fine threads made of PDO are inserted into the skin using a cannula or fine needle. Once introduced, these threads provide a structure that can help lift and tighten the skin. They can also stimulate collagen production, leading to improved skin texture, elasticity, and volume.
2. Absorption: Over time (typically 6-8 months), the body gradually and safely absorbs the PDO material.
3.Effects: Even after the threads are absorbed, the beneficial effects, such as collagen stimulation, can continue for several more months. This means the results of the procedure can last anywhere from 12-24 months, depending on the individual and the specific techniques used.
4.Benefits: PDO thread lifts are considered less invasive than surgical facelifts and offer a quicker recovery time. They can be used to address sagging skin, wrinkles, and loss of facial volume in areas like the cheeks, jawline, neck, and eyebrows.
5.Risks: As with any medical or aesthetic procedure, there are risks involved. Potential side effects can include bruising, swelling, pain at the insertion site, dimpling of the skin, and, in rare cases, infection or nerve damage.
6.Types of Threads: There are various types of PDO threads, including mono threads (smooth and without barbs, mainly used for collagen stimulation), cog threads (have barbs, providing grip to lift and reposition tissue), and screw threads (used for creating volume).
It’s essential for those interested in a PDO thread lift to consult with a qualified and experienced medical professional to discuss suitability, potential risks, and desired outcomes. Dr Akef is one of the most expert aesthetic physicians in Canada and internationally in threads. He has trained many doctors and nurses in this field.
