 PDO Threads Q & A

What are PDO threads?

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are medical-grade protein threads that are thinner than a single strand of hair. They’ve been in use in medical applications for many years, treating gynecologic and orthopedic conditions and for wound repair. 

In aesthetic applications, PDO threads work to lift loose or sagging skin. They are FDA approved and are a popular treatment among people who want a more youthful and well-rested appearance without going through plastic surgery. 

Shorebreak Concierge uses V Soft LiftⓇ threads, a brand with an outstanding safety and quality track record. These threads are currently in use in the United States and throughout Europe.

How do PDO threads work?

Having PDO threads placed is often called a thread lift. There are two different types of threads, and your practitioner discusses which option is best suited for your needs. 

The placement of smooth threads is in a grid pattern to create a skin tightening effect. Cogged, or barbed threads, have tiny barbs extending from the main shaft of the thread, which help to lift sagging skin. 

After assessing your skin and discussing your treatment goals, your practitioner uses a stainless steel cannula to enter your skin and position the threads. The sterile delivery device is diamond-cut and treated with medical-grade silicone to glide smoothly into the skin with minimal disruption of the outermost layers. 

Once in place, your practitioner deploys the threads before gently removing the cannula. You see an immediate improvement in loose or sagging skin, but the effects continue to improve over time. 

PDO threads not only create an instant physical lifting effect; they also prompt your body to create new collagen. That works to smooth and plump skin over time. Even though the PDO thread material slowly dissolves and your body absorbs it, the new collagen remains in place for many years, thickening and tightening the skin. 

How long do PDO thread results last?

It takes around six months for the full effects of your PDO thread lift to develop. While the threads themselves usually dissolve in around 12 weeks, your effects can last as long as two years. 

You can enhance your PDO threads results by embracing a high-quality skin care routine. Shorebreak Concierge can help you select products formulated for your specific skin type. 

Sun protection is a powerful tool in fighting the visible signs of aging and also protecting against skin cancer. Be sure to incorporate a great sunscreen into your daily skin care routine to prolong and enhance your treatment results.
