What are PDO Thread Lifts?
At Skin Retouch MediSpa, medical director Dr. Brad Herpolsheimer, Dr. Richard Ruff, and their staff offer their Columbus, OH and surrounding area patients polydioxanone (PDO) threads as a wonderful and effective alternative to a surgical facelift. PDO threads are used to address mild to moderate signs of aging, like skin laxity and hollowness. This minimally invasive procedure starts by threading surgical-grade PDO threads (or fibers) through your trouble area, like sagging skin, and will gently be tugged and positioned to create a lifting effect. The threads will work to keep your face lifted at the same time as encouraging collagen and elastin growth, which will naturally heal and strengthen your skin. Over time, the threads will safely dissolve into the body. For more information or to schedule a consultation, contact our office today.

What Can I Expect from My PDO Thread Treatment?
PDO threads can be used a few different ways — twist threads can be used as fillers to add volume, lift threads can lift the thread, and smooth threads are used to address fine lines, like Crow's feet. During your initial consultation, we'll review what the best thread treatment for your overall goals will be. On the day of your appointment, someone from our Heath, OH team will perform your thread lift with local anesthesia. While you'll be awake for this hour-long or so procedure, the anesthesia will keep you comfortable. We'll mark the spots on your face where the threads will enter and exit, then use a very fine needle to insert the threads into your skin. Once placed, we'll very gently pull on the threads to provide the lifted effect. After your procedure, you'll likely notice results right away while the twist and smooth threads could take between 2 – 3 months to fully appear. It could take the treatment areas a week or two to heal so you may have some soreness and redness, but you will notice smoother, refreshed skin for a year or more.
