What to do if Your PDO Threads Slip Out of Place
As we age, collagen production slows down and causes us to lose facial volume. This contributes to skin issues, such as wrinkling and sagging. Board-certified physician Dr. Salman Hashmi now offers the advanced PDO thread lift, a minimally invasive way to rejuvenate your face so you can appear more rested and refreshed.
Our clinic uses dissolving PDO threads for skin tightening to achieve the best results. While it is unlikely that your PDO threads will slip out of place, it is still important for patients to understand the procedure itself as well as thread lift aftercare. To learn how our innovative thread lift works in Little Rock, AR, contact Nirvana Med Spa.
About the PDO thread lift
Many people turn to over-the-counter creams and exfoliants to keep their complexion vibrant-looking. Staying hydrated and protecting your skin from the sun are also great steps for having healthy skin. However, some mild to moderate signs of aging cannot be avoided as collagen begins to decline. A thread lift involves placing PDO threads just beneath the skin for an almost immediate lifting effect.
PDO threads are made from the same materials used in surgical sutures. Once they are placed, they also stimulate new collagen in the treatment area, which further plumps and smoothes the skin. Since threads are available in a range of options, treatment can be customized based on your cosmetic needs and goals. After the dissolving PDO threads have completed their job, they naturally go away on their own.
Your skin tightening appointment
When you come in for a PDO thread lift, we begin by cleaning and numbing the treatment area. Our goal is to help you feel as little discomfort as possible. The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes to perform. At Nirvana Med Spa in Little Rock, AR, our patients love the fact that treatment does not involve a significant amount of time in recovery. Afterward, we will give you instructions for thread lift aftercare at home.
Are PDO threads safe?
Most people notice the rejuvenating results of their thread lift right away. While you may feel some tightness from the dissolving PDO threads, the threads themselves will not be visible. Patients can rest assured knowing that their threads are not only effective for skin tightening but are also incredibly safe. The materials used in these products have been used in medical procedures for many years.
As we mentioned, it is unlikely for PDO threads to slip out of place. If you experience a problem with your treatment or have questions about thread lift aftercare, contact a member of our knowledgeable team right away. We can schedule a follow-up appointment and perform an assessment to see how we can help. Patients who are interested in creating more dramatic results can ask about combining their PDO lift with other complementary procedures as well.
