A polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift is a minimally invasive, non-surgical option for those looking to achieve natural, youthful skin without the need for surgery. The PDO threads are made from a substance commonly used in medical sutures and inserted into the skin with a needle or cannula device to stimulate collagen production and lift sagging areas of the face.
PDO threads are most often used for treating sagging jowls and neck, wrinkles between the eyebrows, nasolabial folds (smile lines), and other areas of the face where skin laxity is an issue. When inserted into the dermis layer of the skin, they provide an immediate lift and a longer-term tightening effect. But exactly how long does a PDO thread lift last?
The length of time your PDO thread lift will last depends on a number of factors, including your age, skin type, and how well you take care of your skin after the procedure. Generally speaking, you can expect the results of a PDO thread lift to last for at least 12 months — and, in some cases, up to 3 years. Older patients may only notice the lifting effect for around 12 months, while younger patients may notice effects for up to 3 years, but following proper post-procedure care guidelines can help ensure that your results last as long as possible.
It’s important to note that a PDO thread lift is not a one-time solution for sagging skin or wrinkles — it will need to be repeated at regular intervals in order to maintain the effects.
