What are PDO Threads?
PDO threads, or Polydioxanane, are materials with suture-like capabilities, absorbed by the body with a higher ability to generate collagen and elastin around the tissues where it’s placed. These threads help to rebuild the dermis and protect the skin from sagging by producing natural collagen.
PDO is non-toxic and provides long-lasting effects. Esthetic skin tightening threads have vastly improved, especially in areas like the abdomen. If you’re interested in an abdomen thread lift in Chicago, contact the plastic surgeons at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Institute today. Schedule a consultation today.
Tiny, dissolvable suture threads are introduced to a superficial layer of the dermis and pulled tight in the treatment area using an advanced technique. The PDO threads grab onto the surrounding soft tissues and help manifest an improved look by lifting and tightening, giving you a more youthful appearance.
PDO Thread Lift Procedure
When you have a threading treatment done at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Institute, you won’t experience any downtime, have very mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising, but have long-lasting results (several months). You will be able to return to normal daily activities right away.
The procedure is performed under a local anesthetic as the threads are inserted into the abdominal skin. It can be complemented with other procedures like micro-needling, radiofrequency, laser resurfacing, and ultrasound technologies. Having additional procedures done will enhance the final result.
This minimally invasive procedure is perfect for patients with crepiness around the belly button and post-pregnancy wrinkles. Read the FAQs below for more information on non-surgical tummy tightening with threads.
How Long Do Results Last
A PDO abdominal thread lift may last up to an entire year or longer dependent on maintenance treatments after the initial procedure. Treatment results will vary by patient, and you can always receive another treatment once the effects wear off.
