Not everyone is ready for a full-on surgical facelift. Facelifts may provide reliable results, but they can feel a bit drastic to some people. Facelifts can be intimidating in numerous ways, including the cost ($10K on average), the surgical methods (general anesthesia), and the lengthy recovery period (up to 4 weeks). But what if there was another procedure? One with similar results and fewer downsides?

At ALo Medical in Eustis, FL, our PDO thread lift procedure offers all of the same benefits as surgical facelifts without the long incisions, high cost, or weeks of recovery. PDO threads sit just beneath the skin to tighten surrounding tissue for years! For a quarter of the cost of traditional facelifts, you can enjoy a more youthful face for years to come! Schedule a free consultation with us today to see if a PDO thread lift is right for you.

How We Perform PDO Thread Lifts at ALo

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a special medical grade suture that is absorbable and made of sugar polymer. It is beneficial for patients with mild to moderate laxity (loose skin) in the middle and lower parts of the face. It is also helpful for smoothing, tightening, and adding volume to other parts of the face and certain areas of the body.

In addition to tightening skin, PDO threads also improve circulation and stimulate collagen production. A PDO thread lift procedure can also increase metabolism in the targeted area, promoting fat breakdown, muscle relaxation, and tissue adhesion.

The procedure is a viable solution for patients who elect not to undergo surgical interventions or other non-surgical approaches. All types of threads can be used with other modalities for best results. PDO thread lifts are safe, effective, and produce a semi-permanent effect that can last up to 1-2 years with suture absorption in 6-8 months.

Benefits of PDO Thread Lifts

PDO threads tighten skin, support tissue, prevent wrinkles from worsening or developing, and achieve similar results to a surgical facelift. Better still, PDO thread lifts avoid many of the most common downsides associated with surgical facelift procedures.

Appropriately, PDO thread lifts offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Tighter skin
  • Fewer developing/worsening fine lines/wrinkles
  • Improved collagen production
  • Improved circulation
  • Improved muscle relaxation
  • Improved tissue adhesion
  • Non-surgical
  • Long-lasting (up to 1-2 years)
  • No general anesthesia required
  • Minimal downtime

Who’s a Candidate for PDO Threads?

Patients in good health who aren’t yet ready to commit to the cost, surgical methods, or extensive downtime are excellent candidates for PDO thread lifts. The final determination of your fitness for a PDO thread lift procedure should be determined by a medical professional.

We’ll speak with you during your consultation at ALo medical to understand your needs, desires, and expectations. Then, we’ll suggest a treatment option we think is most suitable for you.

PDO Threads FAQs

Absolutely! PDO threads are inserted beneath the skin through small incisions. Once positioned, the PDO threads do the work on their own! Unlike surgical facelifts (which require cutting, stretching, and reattaching of facial skin), PDO threads provide much more in keeping with your natural face while still improving the texture, quality, and appearance of skin.

Like some other surgical interventions, facelifts require general anesthesia, intimidating some patients. Surgical facelifts also require more drastic incisions and a lengthier downtime than PDO thread lifts. While both procedures are widely considered safe, at ALo Medical, we believe that the safest approach is the one that you’re most comfortable with.

At ALo Medical, we’ll do everything to make your PDO thread lift procedure as comfortable as possible. PDO thread lifts only take an hour, and a local anesthetic can be applied to make the procedure fast and painless. Most patients report tenderness, minimal swelling, and bruising afterward but little discomfort throughout.
