PDO Thread Lift in Tulsa, Oklahoma
PDO Thread Lift
PDO Thread Lift is a fantastic medical cosmetic treatment for tightening up many areas of the face including the neck and jawline. There have been other thread lift procedures available but the PDO Thread lifting is a more gentle procedure. The threads are inserted, with a very fine needle, just under the skin into targeted areas to produce a tightening effect and a subtle long-term result from new collagen formation.
The sensation of the insertion of the threads is very similar to acupuncture treatment, which can cause a slight stinging sensation. A numbing cream is applied to the skin prior to the treatment to ease any discomfort.
The PDO Threads are made from Polydioxanone and have been used in cardiac surgery for over 40 years without any adverse reactions. They gradually dissolve in approximately 8 months but the effects can last up to 2 years. The first effects are visible instantly with a considerable improvement seen at 6-8 weeks when stimulation of collagen has started. The full effect is seen at around 4 months.
