PDO Threads

PDO Threads

PDO Threads, known as polydioxanone threads, offer a rejuvenating, youthful appearance by lifting and tightening sagging skin. During the treatment, biodegradable threads are strategically inserted into the skin, stimulating collagen production and providing a supportive structure for the skin to tighten. This innovative technique can effectively target various areas of the face and body, including the jawline, cheeks, brows, neck, and even abdomen and arms, where skin laxity may be a concern. Ideal candidates for PDO Threads are individuals seeking a non-surgical solution to improve skin laxity and achieve a more lifted and defined facial contour with minimal downtime

If you're interested in revitalizing your appearance and reclaiming a youthful glow, schedule a consultation at La Bella Aesthetics in Worcester, MA, and experience the benefits of PDO Threads.

Benefits of PDO Threads

Post-Treatment Guidelines for PDO Threads

When to Seek Medical Attention:

  • If the thread site is swollen, red, or has a fever or drainage.
  • If a thread protrudes through the skin surface.

Facial PDO Procedures

  • Maintain an elevated head position using several pillows for three nights post-procedure.
  • Refrain from applying direct pressure to the face or the sutured area for at least one week following the procedure. Avoid activities such as sleeping face down, chewing excessively, talking, yawning, smiling, and other facial movements.
  • When washing your hair and face, gently upward and outward motions that mimic the direction of the sutures, lifting the skin.
  • Patients may remove KT tape after 24 hours. When doing so, remove it carefully, pulling from bottom to top, and moisten the area with a small amount of baby oil.
  • Banding, a common occurrence post-procedure, should not cause concern. Applying warm water compresses and allowing time will typically resolve any banding issues.
