What Is A PDO Threads Treatment

PDO threads is a minimally-invasive treatment that stimulates collagen production, tightening the skin and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Results are natural-looking and they continue to improve in the four to six months following treatment.

We offer two types of PDO threads at SkinSpirit clinics:

Smooth threads help create a framework of support under the skin’s surface – and that’s just the beginning. As the threads disappear – approximately 90 days later – your own collagen production continues to build and work its magic creating thicker, healthier and smoother skin over time. Smooth threads is offered at all SkinSpirit clinics and can be used in a series of treatments and pairs well with BOTOX and Sculptra for a powerful combo. 

Barbed threads, on the other hand, are designed to  anchor the sagging skin and lift it upwards. Please note that barbed threads are offered in select clinics, and are especially designed to anchor the sagging skin and lift it upwards.

How it Works

Unlike similar facial procedures, PDO threads use small needles to insert absorbable, biocompatible threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO) under the skin and stimulate collage production, without the need for big incisions.

With most of our thread treatments, the injected threads hold skin tissue in an elevated position, giving your face an immediate lift. As your body absorbs the threads, the treated areas undergo natural, controlled healing, repair, and collagen building—leaving no scar tissue—just younger-looking, firmer skin.

The SkinSpirit Experience

At SkinSpirit, we invite all of our patients in for a complimentary consultation before you begin your PDO threads treatment. During this time, your provider will speak to you about your goals and concerns and take a look at your skin. This will allow us to ensure you’re a great candidate and determine the areas to target.

Each procedure is performed by a medical expert whose received advanced SkinSpirit training on PDO threads.

Anticipated Results

Following your PDO threads treatment, downtime is typically minimal, though it can vary based on the type and number of threads used. While there may be some visible swelling and bruising, you can go back to work and regular daily activities right away.

Results should be apparent right after the threads are put into place, but they’ll be more visible as swelling and bruising starts to subside and will continue to improve in the four to six weeks following treatment.

With barbed threads, inflammation and bruising may occur in the first few days, but they typically resolve after two weeks.
