PDO Threadlift Q & A

What are PDO thread lifts?

PDO thread lifts use tiny, biodegradable threads made of polydioxanone to lift and tighten aging skin. These threads tighten your skin from beneath it, stimulating collagen and elastin production without surgery.

Dr. Afzal is an expert in face and body threads. He’s a trainer for MINT™ PDO threads, training future providers on how to properly perform thread lift procedures.

What are the benefits of PDO thread lifts?

Some of the benefits you can expect when choosing thread lifts at Afzal Clinics include:

  • Skin tightening
  • Smoother skin
  • Reduced signs of aging
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Younger-looking skin
  • Beautiful skin
  • Increased collagen and elastin production
  • No surgery
  • No pain
  • Minimal downtime

Thread lifts are a nonsurgical solution to traditional facelifts, giving you the dramatic, younger-looking appearance you desire.

Are PDO thread lifts right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for PDO thread lifts at Afzal Clinics, your provider reviews your medical history and desired outcome with you. They also examine the skin on your face and body containing unwelcome signs of aging, such as lax skin and wrinkles. Your specialist then personalizes each treatment to give you the best possible results.

What happens during PDO thread lifts?

Right before thread lift procedures, your Afzal Clinics specialist numbs the treatment area to ensure you avoid discomfort. They move PDO threads underneath your skin in targeted areas to lift and tighten it, before securing the threads in place. 

What should I expect after PDO thread lifts?

After undergoing a PDO thread lift, you can resume a normal daily routine. However, you can expect some redness, swelling, and tenderness at the site of treatment. Ice the area, if needed, and take over-the-counter medicine to reduce any discomfort as the numbing wears off.

Over time, as your body generates new cells and the swelling goes down, you will notice the final results. Your body eventually absorbs the biocompatible threads and you can undergo repeat procedures in the future if necessary to maintain younger-looking results long term.
