How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last?

For many people, sagging skin around the lower face makes them look and feel older than they are. A PDO thread lift can fix this loose skin and restore more defined and contoured features.

What is a PDO Thread Lift?

Many people want to remove the appearance of sagging facial skin but do not want or need a facelift. For those people, options included staving off signs of aging with treatments such as laser resurfacing. While this does wonderful things for your skin, it cannot remove loose skin once it develops. Fortunately, for people who want a choice with more dramatic results than a facial but less recovery time than a facelift, there’s the PDO thread lift. 

How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last?

A PDO thread lift can last anywhere from one to three years. The collagen generated by the presence of the threads forms a network under the skin that keeps it firm and maintains its contours. 

How Does a PDO Thread Lift Work?

A MINT™ PDO thread lift uses a dissolvable suture made of polydioxanone, a material used safely in medical procedures all over the world. These threads have a covering of tiny barbs that latch onto your skin. When your provider inserts the threads, they grab on and keep the skin lifted and firmer, reducing the appearance of sagging or laxity. 

The threads lift up loose skin to improve the appearance of the cheeks, jaw area, chin, neck, and lower face in general. The procedure only lasts about 45 minutes, with only tiny punctures to insert the needles that inject the threads. You will only need a local anesthetic. 

The sutures dissolve after about six months, but the result lasts much longer. The secret: collagen production. The presence of the threads tells the body to develop more collagen in the area, giving the skin so much internal strength and support that it remains lifted even when the threads melt away.

What Results Can I Expect From a PDO Thread Lift?

You can expect to see the skin around your cheeks, jaw, and chin lifted so that sagging skin disappears and the contours of cheeks and jaws become visible again. Lifted from beneath, the skin looks naturally youthful. The development of collagen helps add healthy resilience and strength.
