PDO Thread Lift in Tampa

At Health + Glow, we offer PDO Thread Lift as a safe and effective way to rejuvenate your appearance without undergoing invasive surgery. Our skilled medical professionals use this non-surgical facelift technique to tighten and lift sagging skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and restore your youthful glow.

What is PDO Thread Lift?

PDO Thread Lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses PDO (polydioxanone) threads to lift and tighten sagging skin. These threads are made of a safe and biocompatible material that is commonly used in medical sutures.

During the PDO Thread Lift procedure, our medical professionals will use a fine needle to insert the threads into the skin. Once the threads are in place, they are gently pulled to lift the skin and stimulate collagen production. The threads dissolve naturally over time, leaving behind a more youthful and revitalized appearance.

What are the benefits of PDO Thread Lift?

PDO Thread Lift offers numerous benefits for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance without undergoing surgery. Some of these benefits include:

  • Non-invasive: PDO Thread Lift is a non-surgical facelift technique that does not require incisions or general anesthesia. This means that there is no scarring or significant downtime associated with the procedure.
  • Quick procedure: The PDO Thread Lift procedure typically takes 30-60 minutes to complete, making it a quick and easy way to achieve a more youthful appearance.
  • Natural results: PDO Thread Lift works by stimulating the body's natural collagen production, which leads to gradual and natural-looking results.
  • Versatile: PDO Thread Lift can be used to lift and tighten various areas of the face, including the forehead, eyebrows, cheeks, jowls, and neck.
  • Long-lasting: While the threads dissolve naturally over time, the results of PDO Thread Lift can last for up to 12-18 months.

What can I expect during and after the PDO Thread Lift procedure?

Before your PDO Thread Lift procedure, one of the trained medical professionals at Health + Glow will conduct a thorough consultation to assess your medical history and examine your skin. During the procedure, a local anesthetic may be used to minimize discomfort.

After the procedure, you may experience some mild swelling or bruising, but this should subside within a few days. You may also be advised to avoid strenuous activities or direct sunlight for a short period of time.

The results of PDO Thread Lift are typically visible immediately after the procedure, but they will continue to improve over time as the threads stimulate collagen production. You can expect to enjoy a more youthful and revitalized appearance for up to 12-18 months.
