Can Droopy Cheeks Be Tightened and Lifted With PDO Threads?

A PDO thread lift is one of the best aesthetic treatments you can find for your face. The procedure isn’t as invasive as facelift surgery, plus it can be completed in less than an hour in some cases. Our team at Skin Retouch MediSpa in Heath, OH, is proud to offer the PDO thread lift treatment for patients who want to look younger.

One exciting way a PDO thread lift can improve your appearance is to fix droopy cheeks. PDO threads can lift sagging skin and keep it from being noticeable.

How do PDO threads work?

The PDO thread lift process involves a polydioxanone or PDO thread with a biodegradable polyester suture going through the skin. The dissolvable thread is inserted into the skin to trigger collagen and elastin production in the skin. Fibroblast cells in your skin will become more active, improving how well collagen and elastin can develop. The newfound production helps restore the skin’s appearance and creates a firm look, keeping sagging skin around the cheeks from being visible in Columbus, OH.

The spots where the threads will enter will vary by patient. Your doctor can determine the proper areas based on how well your skin looks and feels and which require the most treatment.

Does the process leave any marks on the skin?

The experts at Skin Retouch MediSpa will help correct your droopy cheeks without leaving behind scarring. The threads are inserted in suitable places where the insertion sites will not be noticeable to most people. The spots are also small enough to where these spaces can heal without producing scars.

You may notice some tightness or tenderness around the insertion sites. Inflammation may also develop, although it will be less intensive as the tissues become used to the PDO thread.

It takes about 2 – 3 months for the area to heal, but you will notice positive results around the cheeks well before that period ends.

Are follow-up appointments needed?

We recommend a follow-up visit about six months after the initial PDO thread procedure. The timeframe should be enough to help you spot positive results.

You may not require a second PDO thread lift, although your doctor can determine if this is suitable for treatment purposes. The doctor can review how well the skin has recovered and if it has produced enough new tissue in the area to correct your sagging cheeks.
