What are PDO Thread Lifts?
At Skin Retouch MediSpa, we offer 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.
"I’ve been interested in getting injectables for awhile, but was nervous to take the plunge. Now I’m kicking myself for waiting so long! Hannah was so professional and helpful answering my many questions and guiding me in the right direction to get the results I was looking for. She set clear expectations for what to expect during the appointment and the healing process so there weren’t any surprises. If you’re on the fence, I highly recommend booking a consultation to talk through your goals! I couldn’t be happier with my results! Thanks Hannah!!"- D.B. / Facebook / Sep 22, 2021
"Visited Skin Retouch MediSpa for the first time last week and was so impressed. Booking the appointment and filling out the paperwork in advance was quick and easy, the facility was super clean and very professional. The best part of the experience (other than the service itself - I love the work their team did!) were the staff. Dr. Rich and Stacy are fantastic and answered all of my questions. Would HIGHLY recommend them for self-care services and will for sure be going back."- L.M. / Google / Sep 21, 2021

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.
subtle, natural-looking lift
Thread lifts are minimally invasive procedures that are able to provide long-lasting, beautiful results. If you are noticing the first signs of aging or perhaps have lines and wrinkles due to smoking, excessive squinting, or frowning, a thread lift can refresh and firm up your appearance.
