You’ve tried creams, makeup, rollers, and every other beauty treatment, yet you still can see loose skin on face. It’s a natural part of the aging process, but it can be frustrating and make you feel less confident in your own skin. Fortunately, polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a great way to address mild to moderate loose skin – no surgery required.

At Skin Retouch MediSpa, our staff offer patients in Columbus, OH and surrounding areas PDO threads as a minimally invasive alternative to a surgical facelift. It addresses skin laxity and hollowness that leads to loose skin under the eyes.

How do PDO threads address loose skin on your face?

Loose skin on your face is common – but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it. Polydioxanone threads provide natural results over your lunch break.

Our staff will start by threading surgical-grade PDO threads (or fibers) through the area of concern, such as under eyes, cheeks and jaw areas. These threads will gently be tugged and positioned to create a lifting effect, getting rid of that loose skin.

The PDO threads will keep the skin lifted while also encouraging collagen and elastin growth. This will naturally strengthen and heal your skin. Eventually, the threads will safely dissolve into the body, leaving you with youthful-looking skin.

At Skin Retouch MediSpa, patients in Columbus, OH and surrounding areas can experience quick results that boost confidence and quality of life.

What does PDO thread treatment entail?

There are a few different approaches to PDO thread treatment. These include twist threads that add volume, lift threads that add lift, and smooth threads that address fine lines. At Skin Retouch MediSpa, we use your initial consultation to determine the best thread treatment for your unique goals.

On the day of your PDO thread treatment, someone on our team will administer local anesthesia to numb the area. You will remain awake during the procedure, but the anesthesia will make sure you stay comfortable.

Then, we’ll make the spots on your face will enter. Using a very fine needle, we will insert the PDO threads into your skin. Then, we’ll gently pull on the threads to provide a lifting effect.

PDO thread treatment procedures take about an hour or so. Most patients notice results right away, but the full effects from the twist and smooth threads can take up to three months to fully appear.

As you heal, you may experience some soreness and redness. However, you will enjoy smoother, youthful-looking skin for a year or more.
