A polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift offers state-of-the-art lifting of the skin of the face without the need for open surgery. At Azalea MedSpa in Lenexa thread lifts may be performed on the skin and tissues around the eyes, cheeks, jaw, or neck. The results of a thread lift typically last between 12 to 18 months, but some patients have seen outcomes that last even longer. A thread lift may be combined with skin rejuvenation treatments for maximum lifting, tightening, and smoothing.
A PDO thread lift is a type of “non-surgical facelift” in which a thin biocompatible filament is inserted using a narrow cannula and used to draw underlying tissues of the face upward. The absorbable suture, which is placed during a brief in-office procedure, also helps stimulate collagen production to tighten and lift the skin from within. At Azalea Med Spa in Lenexa PDO Thread Lifts typically only takes around 45 minutes and can be performed using a local anesthetic.
Many people who choose a thread lift are experiencing mild to moderate facial sagging but are not yet ready to undergo a more invasive procedure like a full facelift. This in-office procedure provides subtle but effective tightening without the downtime associated with surgery. A PDO thread lift can be advantageous for patients of almost any age but is most commonly sought by individuals from their late thirties to their early fifties. With a PDO thread lift Lenexa patients can treat multiple areas of the face:

We can assess your facial structure and skin tone to help you determine whether a PDO thread lift can give you the results you desire.

A Quick Procedure
At your initial consultation, you may be asked to refrain from taking certain medications or supplements in the days leading up to your procedure. When you arrive, you will recline in a comfortable treatment chair. Your Lenexa PDO Thread Lift provider will cleanse the procedure area and treat it with a local anesthetic. The thread is inserted using a narrow surgical cannula and drawn carefully through the tissue beneath the skin before being anchored into place. Because this is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require general anesthesia, you will be able to return home shortly after your procedure.
You should be able to see the lifting and tightening provided by the PDO thread immediately following your procedure. Many patients see results lasting for a year or more, and a few have seen results lasting even longer. The length of time the PDO thread lift continues to demonstrate lifting of facial tissues may depend on a patient’s age, with younger patients typically retaining their outcomes for a bit more time.
Get Back to Your Life
Some bruising and swelling in the treatment area are normal and will generally resolve in about 48 hours. You may need to avoid intense exercise or saunas for a while and sleep on your back. You should also avoid touching the area during early recovery or making certain facial motions that could risk pulling the thread out of place. Your aesthetic provider will give you specific directions for caring for the treatment area during early recovery.
