In the world of aesthetic medicine, the hunt for non-surgical treatments that offer noticeable and lasting results is always on. One treatment that has been receiving attention in recent times is the Polydioxanone (PDO) Thread Lift. At Ultimate Image Cosmetic Medical Center, we’re proud to offer this innovative treatment to our clients in Tampa and Clearwater, helping them to achieve their skin tightening and rejuvenation goals without surgery. But one of the most common questions we hear is: “How long do thread lifts last?” Let’s take a deeper look.
Understanding PDO Thread Lifts
A PDO Thread Lift is a non-surgical facelift that works to tighten and lift sagging skin. This treatment utilizes medical-grade threads that are thinner than hair and made from FDA-approved protein material. These PDO threads are injected into the skin during a non-invasive procedure, stimulating neocollagenesis to help plump, firm, and rejuvenate the skin.
At Ultimate Image, we use PDO threads from Medyglobal America, renowned for their high-quality, contaminant-resistant threads. Their unique use of 3D technology allows each thread to be nearly twice as strong as leading competitors. This makes the PDO threads attach to your tissues comfortably and effectively without any manual twisting.
The Duration of PDO Thread Lift Results
PDO thread lifts offer some instant lifting results. However, the actual protein synthesis, which promotes the production of new collagen, begins after about two weeks. This regeneration process helps to combat fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging, while also stimulating the production of elastin and hyaluronic acid – natural substances in our bodies that promote firm and smooth skin.
The most notable results are usually visible after about six months when the maximum collagen stimulation has occurred. The threads themselves are biodegradable and dissolve completely after approximately 12 weeks, leaving behind the collagen it helped produce. This natural process leaves your skin feeling tighter and looking more youthful.
So, how long do these results last overall? The good news is that the results of PDO thread lifts can be quite long-lasting, thanks to the collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid it stimulates. Although individual results may vary, the beneficial effects of a PDO thread lift can last for up to two years!
Making the Most of Your PDO Thread Lift
While the results of a PDO Thread Lift can last up to two years, the longevity of the results can be influenced by factors like your lifestyle, age, and skin type. Maintaining a healthy skincare routine, including proper cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection, can help prolong the results. Regular follow-up treatments can also help maintain the lifted, youthful appearance achieved from the initial procedure.
