PDO Threads Tightening
in Gilbert, Arizona

In the endless pursuit of youthful, smooth skin without surgery, innovative options like PDO Threads Tightening are paving the way with immediate, dramatic results and little to no downtime. This breakthrough skin tightening treatment is gaining immense popularity in Gilbert, Arizona and beyond. But what exactly does it entail? Let’s explore the details.

What Are PDO Threads and How Do They Tighten Skin?

PDO stands for Polydioxanone, an absorbable suture material used for many years in medical procedures. PDO threads are inserted under the skin to stimulate new collagen production and promote cellular renewal. This process gradually tightens, lifts and firms sagging skin on the face and body over several months. Immediate tightening is also achieved by the threads physically pulling the skin taut.

How Does PDO Threads Skin Tightening Differ from a Facelift?

While a surgical facelift involves incisions and can address more severe sagging, PDO Threads provide moderate tightening and lifting using a minimally invasive approach with no cuts or scars. The results emerge gradually over weeks and months as the collagen regenerates. Since no cuts are made, there is no lengthy recovery.

What Are the Benefits of PDO Threads Tightening?

Compared to surgery, PDO Threads Tightening offers:

  • Little to no downtime – resume normal activities in days
  • No incisions or scarring
  • More affordable with lower risk
  • Natural looking results – no overt tightness
  • Stimulates new collagen for further tightening over time
  • Can treat small areas like under the neck or eyes

How is the PDO Threads Procedure Performed?

At DrSkin Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona, your comfort and safety comes first. We use an advanced technique with gentle, tapered needles to minimize discomfort. Numbing cream and local anesthesia are applied before inserting the threads strategically beneath the skin of the target areas, such as the cheeks, jowls, neck, eyebrows or jawline. The threads are then tightened and lifted to achieve the desired appearance.

What is Recovery Like After PDO Threads?

Some mild soreness, swelling or bruising can occur initially but this resolves within a week or so. Most patients feel ready to return to normal activities in 2-3 days. Avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun exposure, alcohol consumption and blood thinners for a short period after treatment. Follow any post-care instructions from your provider.

How Long Do PDO Threads Tightening Results Last?

Visibly firmer, lifted skin can be enjoyed for 1-2 years in most cases. Over time, as your natural collagen declines again, a follow up procedure can renew and enhance your youthful appearance.
