What Should I Expect for my PDO Thread Appointment?
Your appointment starts with an in-depth assessment of your facial structure and consultation about your skin goals to determine together the best treatment plan for you. Then, the doctor will discuss the areas that are suitable for PDO threads and the number of threads needed to achieve your desired result.
Each treatment area is first numbed with lidocaine. Then, the threads are inserted with a blunt cannula that glides beneath the skin along areas of your face and/or neck. The appointment length depends on the consult and area but typically lasts no longer than an hour.
Over the next 7-14 days, your treatment areas may feel sore and tight. There may also be some bruising and swelling afterward, which can be expected. The lifting effects will be immediate, and after about 5 weeks, you will see the full result. The threads dissolve over a 6 month period, leaving new collagen in their place. Results can last up to 2 years, however, many people benefit from touch-ups prior to 2 years.
