What Are PDO Threads?

Polydioxanone (PDO) Threads are a non-surgical lifting procedure done in-office using plastic dissolvable threads that insert under the skin. These threads are used to tighten the sagging or wrinkled skin and produce immediate results. These results are comparable to that of a surgical face-lift, without the risks of surgery, costly price tag, and long recovery period.

At Johnson Family Medical in Frisco, TX, Nurse Practitioner Katherine Johnson uses skills and certification acquired through “PDO Thread MAX Training” to provide patients with the most low-risk and cost effective face-lifting results. PDO threads are an implanted device, which is why they are FDA certified for dermal use under a class two medical device.

Lasting Results With PDO Threads

Another appealing benefit of PDO Threads is how they stimulate collagen production to the skin, improving elasticity and youthfulness to the area. This means that even though the threads dissolve over time, they will leave behind tighter skin to the mid-face, jawline, or neck for up to two years.

Who is a candidate for PDO Threads?

Patients who are looking for a non-surgical way to tighten and lift their mid-face, jawline, neck, or forehead wrinkles with immediate results would be a good candidate for PDO Threads. The most common demographic for this procedure is patients in their mid 50’s to late 60’s. This treatment may not be suitable for anyone with an acute respiratory viral infection, autoimmune disease, HIV infection, oncological disease, pregnancy/nursing, or any other risk-related conditions. Our licensed health providers at Johnson Family Medical in Frisco, TX will assess your health risks in a detailed consultation.

Is the procedure painful?

We provide topical numbing to the treatment area to reduce pain as much as possible. There can be some slight discomfort at the injection sight along with some redness and/or swelling, however most patients find the numbing cream to be very effective. The procedure takes about 20 minutes of injecting and tightening, leaving the patient with immediate results well-worth the slight discomfort.

How long will the results last?

Because the PDO Threads stimulate collagen production to the skin, the threads provide long-lasting results that continue to improve the overall texture, elasticity, and tone of the skin. The thread device will dissolve after about 12-18 months, but results of the procedure last up to two-three years.
